From Viz:

After orphan Teru Kurebayashi loses her beloved older brother, she finds solace in the messages she exchanges with Daisy, an enigmatic figure who can only be reached through the cell phone her brother left her. Meanwhile, Teru meets and forms a strange friendship with mysterious Tasuku Kurosaki, her school's janitor. For some reason, Kurosaki always seems to be around whenever Teru needs help which leads Teru to wonder: Could Daisy be a lot closer than she thinks?

As the mystery of Daisy unfolds, Teru also discovers that there may have been a lot more to the life and death of her brother than she ever dreamed . . . and that the man she thought was her friend just might have all the answers.

Amazing. Absolutely amazing. Actually, amazing isn't even the word - more like fantastic.

The characters are realistic and distinctly original and non-cliche. Teru isn't the type of heroine who is kind to everyone and cries in every chapter, who has no flaws but clumsiness and trusting everyone/the wrong people. She doesn't make every mistake humanly possible, and she isn't stupid, or even extremely smart. She's just - normal. She makes mistakes, she insults people, she lies on occasion, and is, while far from perfect, in general a good person.

Also, in many other manga, the male lead is usually the most popular boy in school who seems to have no flaws (and really shouldn't notice the heroine at all, but does for some strange reason). That is most definitely not Kurosaki. He's violent, he's got a short temper, he's perverted, he smokes, he's lazy - again, inwardly a very good person, but he's HUMAN, which is so refreshing.

...And the rest of the characters are great as well - and all the dialog and character interactions are great. And you can really see how all of the cast - especially our two main characters - grow and develop as you go along. It's fantastic.

AND THE PLOT. It actually has a plot. An excellent plot, which builds and grows and when you re-read the manga, you'll go, "...Wow! I can totally see why this happened now!" But even when you first read a chapter which later leads into something bigger, you're not lost, or confused. You're right there with the characters, and likely you won't even realize what just happened was important until later in the story when it all clicks together. And nothing happens as you think it will - there are so many unexpected twists in this manga that eventually you give up trying to predict what will happen next and just go along for the ride.

Also, even between all the drama, there's something to make you laugh. The humor isn't usually (/is almost never) in an inappropriate place, though you may not see it coming, and there's something worth giggling/quoting to your friends in every chapter.

SUMMARY (for those of you who didn't want to read all that):
Characters: 9/10 (well-developed, original)
Plot: 9/10 (interesting, twisty)
Art: 8/10 (very simple, but nice)

Edit: Well...frankly, I'm not nearly as into this manga as I was at its beginning.

I feel like romance and humor has sort of taken a backseat to lots of back-stories and a confusing and detail-oriented plot. The humor hasn't really changed or matured much over the volumes, and I can only read "I hope you go bald, Kurosaki!" so many times before it stops being funny. To put it simply, with all the action and mystery and drama and psychological-ness, this doesn't feel like a shoujo anymore, but rather a mislabeled shounen manga. And shounens are nice enough, some of them, but that's really not what I was expecting when I started reading this - I like the fluffiness and romance that the shoujo genre is known for.

So the rating has gone down for me - currently, it's at 6/10. But, I haven't yet grown irritated enough to drop this, so maybe it will get better as time goes on.

This is my absolute favorite series for the following reasons:
1. Mystery - A lot of mangas try to put a sense of mystery about the main guy because -let's face it- who doesn't love a mysterious guy? But most of the time it ends up being stupid or poorly done and thrown in at the last second. In Dengeki Daisy a huge focus is placed on Daisy's mysterious past with what appears to be (so far) a complex plot line.
2. Humor - I laugh, a lot.
3. A strong protagonist - Teru, despite going through such a huge tragedy, is able to get over it unlike many shoujo protagonists who just cry a lot and assume that since they broke a nail the world is going to end.
4. New spin on a classic shoujo guy - Daisy is ridiculously shoujo. Mysterious, strong, protective guy with a forbidden love? Come on. But a new spin (and some geek factor which I love) is thrust in by making him actually capable with computers.
5. Sweet romance - While I like crazy dramatic smutty soap-opera type manga as much as the next person, it's refreshing to occasionally sit down to a sweet romance. Though most of the "pure romances" tend to piss me off by having a naive girl worshiping the main guy who secretly loves her too. Um, no thanks. Dengeki Daisy is a sweet love that won't bore you to death and I reccomend it to anyone that likes Shoujo.

Best shoujo manga???

Okay, if you count art as an important factor to determine which shoujo is the best, then maybe you won't say Basara or 7 Seeds.
If you think romance is important, then I guess you won't pick Natsume Yuujinchou or Banana Fish.
If your soul isn't mature enough or you hate angst, maybe you'll count Kare Kano out.
If you the type who shout 'the heroine cries every chapter! weak! weak! weak! i'm totally dropping this' then maybe you've dropped Immortal Rain already.
You occupied your reading-manga time with stuffs like Kaichou wa Maid Sama, Special A, Goong, Black Bird, Bride of The Water God, Faster Than a Kiss, etc. And then you come to worship this manga. How sad. This manga is superior, no doubt, but that's because the standard of shoujo manga for the readers was already too low.

Likeable characters, exciting plot, favorite pairing, and more than skin deep story, right? Then if anything, this manga is on par with Skip Beat. I like the latter more, but it's just my preference.

While I'm at it, honorable mention for great shoujo manga: NG Life, Kamisama Hajimemashita, Gold Rush 21, Akagami no Shirayukihime, Akatsuki no Yona, Golden Days, Issho ni Neyou yo, Mekakushi no Kuni, Reimei no Arcana.

I've always loved Motomi's works and this series is kinda different from the others of the same author - characters and plot but as sweet at always! Really looking forward to the next release! smile

And ah - i really love Kurosaki's character! XD

I really liked this series because it was different from typical romance manga. Either the characters were too boring, the plot ran away, the romance was slow, the guy confessed in the first chapter, etcetera, etcetera.
The only REAL problem I had with this was that when I was on Chapter 30-something I started wishing to reread the manga again... Thanks to that, I couldn't finish the manga in a day... And right now, I'm seriously stuck on this manga, so much that I've reread it 5 times in a couple days and I'm not looking for anything else to read... Please suggest something for me to read! Before I die!
When this manga ends, I will probably be in A LOT of pain unless there is a continuation. I cry every time I think about it ending...

This is the funniest and best manga that I ever read. I love this mangaka. Beast master and now Dengeki Daisy. The mangaka sure knows how to write and draw great storylines and characters.

Teru, the heroine is the best one I ever seen. She cried, joked, and stayed strong at times she should. That's why no one could ever hate her.

Kurosaki is a cool, caring and funny. That makes him a great guy with multiples personality.

To sum it up, this manga is totally awesome. A MUST READ! Best, get yours hands on the manga if you can find it in any manga shop (like me.)!

Storyline - 10/10
Artwork - 10/10
Recommendation - 100000000/10 ><

Yea the romance is slow, but it's HILARIOUS. The lead female is awesome, male lead is adorable, the story is profound, and all the characters are likeable (which is an important aspect in a long running series). This has top ratings in my shoujo royalty (skip beat, ouran high school host club, wallflower, sailormoon, yasuko to kenji, ao haru ride, sa, etc). I look forward to the progress of this wonderful, inventive, and creative series.

At first I was prepared for this manga to be like all other shojo mangas. Typical shojo girl, typical bishounen guy etc tec. BUT, I cannot believe how different this manga is from all others. What everyday manga story is about a hilirious comedy heroine and a lolita (equaly as hilirious) janitor? However this manga is not all about laughs and comedy. The storyline is deep, exciting and touching. In fact, I cried during some parts of the story. Sometimes I feel that the author is having fun playing around with the reader's feelings. First I'll be crying so hard then the next I'll be slamming the table bursting out laughing.
I cannot discribe how beautiful the art is. I understand that most people disagree with the artwork but I find it truely captivating. Each scene is drawn with detail and the characters are not all shojo style with big sparkling eyes or shimmering hair. I know that many people love their characters like that, but Motomi sensei's art is very detailed and it is really beautiful mixed with the wonderful storyline/plot.
Dengeki Daisy is my top number 1 favourite manga both for its art and storyline. I have read lots of shojo mangas but no manga has really truely matched up to the level of this lovely work.
I recommend it very VERY much to those out there who are dying for a great manga. Who knows?
You might be hooked on like me. biggrin
I very easily give it a 10/10

This is one of my favorite mangas ever!!!! Kurosaki is so frickin funny, and Teru isn't one of those overly emotional idiots you usually find in shoujo. She has a brain, and she actually USES it. Kudos to the mangaka for making it realistic (not that you'll find a janitor that hot anywhere) wink totally LOVED it. i'm stalking VIZ until they finish english publication. Definitely a must read!!! smile
