I loved this story. It is sooo cute and adorable, and the reader easily gets attached to the characters. The flaw I find in this story is the end. While its a cute end, I feel as though just a letter and no other contact isn't quite right. Their bond was strong and you think (especially because they have a close bond and are cusions) they would see each other. I also wish they would have at least talked a bit about how Kippi and Kokoro ended up, even if just a picture. Other than that this was really cute and a must read.
so heartwarmingly sad..
I love this manga, and as of right now I'm downloading the anime. Their relationship was so sweet, adorable, heartwarming, moving and

it was as if they were already father and daughter. I loved the ending and yet at the same time it was frustrating. Did they really never meet again?? So sad... In the last pages I almost cried because of Yuzu's last lines, if I'm not mistaken I think she said something like thanking him for everything, that she was glad that they met and that he was the one who took care of her... The last line made me cry..:
"I.. really loved you, Kippei-oniichan!"
It really did move me i cried at some parts and some parts are really cute. THE BEST of the kind ive read, but then again i dont read these kinds too much. after i finished my heart felt like it was missing something.
i just wish the ending had a bit more effort to it, after everything, just a letter? i mean i think after a all the teenage boy went through with a child that isnt his.. it kinda deserve abit more than just a letter of gratitude. but i would have also wish i could see what happened between him and his girlfriend.
but despite all what i just said, it was adorable and a good read. i recommend it. and after all female lead disappointments i have seen, this one isnt even on the list.. the small girl is CUTE and the girlfriend is i dont know, awesome

This manga had a great story and art. I loved the characters, especially Yuzuyu, she was just adorable. The bond between Kippei and Yuzuyu was very touching. The sad thing about it was that the story was rushed at the end and some parts in the manga felt disjointed. But this was an entertaining read nonetheless.
A great shoujo
Art (10%): 8 It is just regular shoujo art although it gets a plus one for making almost every character cute and for having the cute chibi parts.
Story (40%): 9 While the story itself is not very original (taking care of younger child), it was done well. I love how the author put in romance in the story focused on taking care of the younger child. Most of the time this is done wrong and it feels forced but the romance felt natural in this story.
Character (40%): 9 None of the character were outstanding but each character played their part correctly and developed as a character. Kippei, the average playboy changed into someone more caring and less play boyish (not to spoil but he gets into a relationship). Kokoro, the ice queen changed into someone more open. What I'm trying to point out is that there are major character developments and most characters are likable.
Enjoyment (10%): 10 I enjoy reading this story a lot because it was funny and never while reading this story did I think "when is this going to be over and done with".
Total Score: 9

Kokoro, Kippei, and Yuzuya amazing. Art is amazing. The relationship between Kippei and Yuzuya is so unique honestly and Kokora and Kippei are also a mean as couple!! Story neva dragged at any point. Every chapter was unique and contributed to da overall story, sooo good. I love dis manga. I agree with other people about the ending. The ending was bad. I mean writer shud have showed an ending which tells us about the fates of all the characters. What happens to Kokoro? What happens to Miki? What happens to Reiko? None of those important questions are answered. So yea ending was bad. But still great manga!! Yuzuya is soooooo damn cute!! This is aktuli at dis moment my favourite manga evaaa. Love it wish it was longer. I wish dre was a sequel, damn. Even though ending was bad, i loved it sooo much have to give it a 10

It was great, but the ending broke my heart
It is such a good manga, the drawings are gorgeous, and kippei is too cute, his relationship with yuzuyu is so heartwarming, what I didn't like was the end...
Spoiler (highlight to view)
she doesn't get to see him again? After all he did for her? It's so sad, they loved each other so much, she was already his child in a way, they should have kept in touch or something, it's so sad for Kippei... and the only thing he says when he gets the letter is, how nostalgic, is she doing well? like gahhhhh!!! so frustrating! The story was so good it could have gone longer! what happened to the rest of them? How is Kokoro? Shou-chan and Yuzuyu are kind of an item though, that's so cute... but the ending still bothered me sooo much!
There isn't much to say about this manga, apart from the fact that if you read it and don't get touched to the core of your soul, you are hard as stone and cold as ice. The relationships in this manga are incredible and the love you feel for the characters is so warm and nice. It pulls of something that I have yet to see in a slice of life/romance manga: you never feel that it's cliche or sappy because the characters that act super sweet and nice are little kids, and kids have the ability to be the sweetest and nicest people on earth. The only thing that I can say about it that the ending should have shown what happened to the rest of the cast too, because you care for all of them in equal amounts. READ IT!
