Description
From Aerie Scans:

After being dumped, followed closely by her grandmother's sudden death, the chubby Yuri is left broke and homeless. That is until she discovers that her grandmother had been lying to her for years. Her mother is not dead, but is in fact a famous movie star, and very much alive.

Upon arriving at her mother's house, she meets her three new beautiful siblings, all from different fathers. Her new-found family is filled with hilarious oddities, ranging from laziness to drunkenness to gay incest. She is constantly antagonized by her brothers Sumire and Aoi. And her sister Fuyou does little to help. And thus Yuri becomes little more than a maid in the household, catering to her siblings needs while her mother travels the world. But as Yuri's warmth fills the house which before had been so cold...what will happen between her and her brothers? Can they come to see each other as siblings before it's too late?

The series received the Shogakukan Manga Award for shoujo in 1994.

Very good. I must say. Comedic and dramatic and eccentric.
Heard people complaing about the art. Nothing to whine about at all.
It's not a new series, and has very good art for its time. Not shoujo-ish (a very important thing).
I love the characters' personalities. Very unique and funny.
The main characters are all loveable.

Quite the original story. Although I must say, the stranslations are poor...
Hope to see more in the near future.

I've recently read up to the lastest Chapter. It's a great series. I hope it gets more scanlations. I like the characters. Up to one point I liked Sumire but in one chapter I didn't like him. Aoi has replaced his lead. I like Aoi for some reason.

The art grows on you, and it does get better I guess. The story itself is interesting. I like to read more of this. Hope more chapters come along!

This is one of those series that you will never forget. It has that old drawing style and heartwarming scenes that will surely make your day and you will love each and every one of the characters. This is a must read for all shoujo/josei lovers as well as all manga lovers. I recommend this with all my heart!

AHHH!! I am so excited about this manga. I have watched the drama (staring Ella Chen) and had no idea my favorite drama is based from a manga! I started to read it and it is excellent, even better than the drama!

the art was a bit of a turn off, but i grew used to it and kind of able to appreciate it after a while. the story is strangely captivating, however. it doesn't sound great based on the plot summary, but it really REALLY is. wish they'd update...

it is very, VERY good.
Just get used to the art and then the story takes you away. I can't believe I didn't read this way earlier. The plot is amazingly unique and interesting.

The romance is absolutely addictive.

I am one who is attracted to forbidden love bigrazz

The pairing - i am sad already because i can guess the ending...sigh
but still...this is definetely something not to be missed

This article contain litlle spoilers (not to much) but can make you an ideia who the girl will end up...

---

+: I really like this and I´m waiting for more!!! In the beganning I thought that the drawings are ungly but little by little I get used to it. The characters have diferents personalitys and the way they are ... simply perfect!
If you want read a good josei try this one.

- : But if the end on the drama is just like the end of the manga I will hate this... sad It's a cliché end and all the good things that the story can teach us about the beauty don't matter, incest is not a bad thing if people loves each other and all we are tared (sometimes) of the boy who don't are very close to the girl and that is boring to end up with the girl (I like him but...) ... it's to stypid, sorry.

But you must read it because the end can be diferent and until now I will make a good ratting of this.

Nothing is what it seems... the characters have many layers to their personality, which makes them even more interesting. When I first read a couple of pages from the manga, my initial reaction was "what...? so ugly (drawing)..." Don't worry. The art will grow on you... or you'll grow to over look it.
