Light and cute outlook of dark issues
Somehow this manga manages to cast some very dark issues in a cute light, dealing with feelings of isolation of minorities, near-death inspired phobias, slavery and inequality of the world in a cute and optimistic way. It's not got much in the way of plot, focusing more on the personalities of the characters and looking into their background. However it's an enjoyable read after reading several tragic mangas or with elaborate plot lines. Very light and cute with no annoying ecchi or without being irritating.
EDIT: Well I guess anyone reading this should look forward to a long wait since NCIS have dropped it as a project so now we need to hope a new group take it up to finish off the last volume or so.

the drawings are cute but....it was a little boring not really a plot...
adorable manga! It is more of a day-to-day slice of life type of fantasy about a few innocent kids living together. Don't be fooled, it does deal with contemporary issues like alienation, trauma and phobias, and with some older issues like slavery from an optimistic outlook. All the characters are really free spirited and luvable ^_^ Highly recommended
not just the cuteness value
Don't want to spoil anything, but the manga is cute right until it decides to stab you in the gut. And still be bright and pure about the cruelness of the world. Somehow, it's awesome that way.

It's a cute, somewhat refreshing manga. The characters are children, so it's not surprising that they're so innocent -- course, I like Senri the best lol though he's probably the most childish of them all. The art is pretty and idea of 'Anima' is actually pretty interesting!
It's a super great manga. The characters are very cute. The story is very interesting.
awww...it's a cute manga....
Need an overload of cute? Well, you've found your manga.
If you ever need an extra dose of cuteness to get through the day, this is a great series to pick up. While it lacks many conventional characteristics of a manga series (like a plot), it makes up for it in the adorable art-style, amusing characters, and interesting side-stories. It's definitely not a series to come to if you want serious characters or a detailed, dramatic plotline, but it's a good series for relaxation and a short burst of amusement.
i love it!
this is a great manga, and very cute. it doesn't have a ton in the way of plot, but there is some intrigue concerning character backstory, which at the end of volume 7 you still know little about. it hints a lot though, and i wouldn't be surprised if hte major climax is in the last couple of volumes.
