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.

Read this series
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.
A Bit Different, But As Good As Always!
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!
And ah - i really love Kurosaki's character! XD

Dengeki Daisy is one of those rare mangas that no matter the genre, it can be counted as one of the best ever written. Now, that may seem biased and foolish to others because people are constantly tauting things as "Amazing" and "The greatest" for works that deserve a F- in all categories all because they are popular and mind numbing.
Dengeki Daisy isn't like that. It actually has a well thought out plot, one that is structurally sound, interesting, and tight as a story line can possibly be. To be truthful, if you pay close enough attention to the plot you can notice that every little thing that seems "insignificant" ends up being extremely significant later on. The plot, from a writers perspective, is beyond masterful. I can not express how well it was executed. Yes, the idea itself isn't all that perfect and a few things are not actually correct, but you tend to look over such things so it doesnt bother many, if any. The art is unique and progressely gets better, for the most part it has its own charm.
The main characters are a dream for a shojou yet we've seen they're types before. Yet, somehow, someway it ended up being completely different. We have Teru, a poor but strong young girl who lost her brother three years prior to the story and the only person she can count on, emotionally, is a person named Daisy who only contacts her via a phone given to her by her late older brother. There are many ways this could have gone, and if the author was anyone else, I'm sure it would have ended the first few volumes. Instead of doing things gimmicky, it is mature, with a hint of childishness that balances out the sadness and drama. Then there is Kurosaki, a devilish tsundere janitor at the school who by a cliche accident becomes her "master". As it progresses we learn (pretty much in the first couple of chapters) that he is indeed Daisy and is watching over and gently caring for Teru at the behest of her brother. Its easy to see that he truly does care about her and his jerky facade is only to keep her from learning he is her beloved "Daisy". Later on, when you learn about his past, you can not help but feel warm inside when you see his gentle and innocent smiles. (which fortunately make a come back.) Both characters start out strong and only grow stronger, their character devolopment is consistent and interesting. While the first volume starts out shakey, it soon evens out. (I should remind you that DD was originaly supposed to be 3 chapters long and thus the so-so beginning is forgivable.) Every character in the story is likable and is well protrayed. Somehow they ended up being very human (which is hard to accomplish...Trust me.... T.T) When they face hard times, or when they are upset, when facing drama, their actions and emotions are realistic. Like many of us, they do what they can to keep things from falling apart and never utter those clich words of "With the power of love everything is forigiven!" Because like in real life somethings can't be forgiven, especially by the "sinner" themselves and sometimes that can not heal a person.
This manga touches on some really interesting, albiet slightly heavy topics. Regret, sins, the right to be happy, burdens, overcoming the past. Its an engaging read to say the least. It always borders on being realistic with a hint of fantasy.. Anyone that says it has gotten boring lately deserves to be punished. Its just started heating up for the last and most important arc. (Again, can not stress how much you should have taken note of the little things. Chapter 12 and beyond was the obvious route from the beginning.) I feel that as of chapter 68 that there should be at least three more volumes to properly end the series. If there isnt...I'm going to be upset.
Fun and the BEST! No words to describe.
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.)!
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. 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) totally LOVED it. i'm stalking VIZ until they finish english publication. Definitely a must read!!!

My super number one manga
I can't complain anything about this manga. It has all the things you've been looking for in a story. A rare plot line and full of mysteries which readers will chase after.
I love Teru, Daisy and Kurosaki. No boring chapters. This is what i can call, EPIC.
Super Highly Recommended.

It's THAT good!
This one is definitely a straight up solid 10! It has suspense, romance (which doesn't fill you with frustration due to a lack of communication), laughter, twists and main characters who are neither wimps nor idiots - all the things I like in a manga or book. It's one that even if I've read it from cover to cover online I will buy it when it's available. I'd like to have it on hand to be able to read again and again. It's that good.
You know, I read the previous comment that the female lead 'cries all the time' and I have to strongly disagree. I hate crybaby female leads and I didn't dislike her at all. In fact, her character grows emotionally stronger with each volume, which I like. Keep in mind that we pick up the story just a short time after her brother (who is her ONLY living relative & whom she loves dearly) dies. To expect her not to cry is a bit unrealistic but she does her best to hold in in check. She's also smart and strong and willing to stand up for what's right and not be bullied - a definite plus. And though she's in love, she's not all mushy over him all the time. So nice!!

too much to say..
too many things to say.. Teru is the best heroine i've ever encountered. If you read the translations, you can tell that her character develops immensely.. As for kurosaki, he's damn funny and loyal to her brother, which is why he tries to help teru and stops himself from getting too close to her.. Im on ch 42 and so far, I have never regretted reading this one bit. I have to say it can possibly be the best shoujo manga out there, considering the fact that the author is a guy. He is also the author of Beast Master. This has already been licensed which proves how great the manga is.
EDIT: Got boring. Dropped. Waiting for a release every month just to see more computer wizard stuff... yeah, I'm not that tolerant. I wanted more romance from this (there certainly is, but I want it every chapter BAHAHAH) but that's just me.
