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?

Great manga...if you don't know anything about network security
This is above average for what it is (a shoujo manga), but if you know even a little about programming, UNIX/Linux, or network security in general, it is REALLY REALLY STUPID. The "hacking" done by Daisy isn't often touched on, but when it is, it will make you roll your eyes. I almost put it down because of how unrealistic it is, but I kept going because I know the focus isn't really on Daisy's hacking adventures.
Just to give you a little insight into the situation:
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
At one point we see Daisy's bookshelf. I think to myself, awesome! I wonder if there will be any realistic books that a black hat netsec type of guy would actually have?
He has Intro to Mac Computing and a book on Cocoa. COCOA. IS HE ONLY EXPLOITING MAC SYSTEMS? WHY WOULD AN "ELITE HACKER" HAVE A BOOK ON MAC COMPUTING AND COCOA
I mean I expected like The Art of Computer Programming, The C Programming Language (you know, the language that the UNIX kernel was WRITTEN IN), maybe some Code Complete, hell I'd even settle for The New Hacker's Dictionary and just call that shit a day. But nope. Mac Computing and Cocoa.
That's without even mentioning what Daisy's "exploits" even consist of. Where's nagios? ANY kind of server monitoring tool?
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
What is he even looking at, is that CSS code? Why did it only take 5 minutes to gain access to? How is he hacking into a laptop's built-in mic and HOW DID HE DO IT IN UNDER 5 MINUTES WHILE LOOKING AT CSS CODE.
COMPUTERS DON'T WORK THAT WAY.
Like I mentioned, if you're not very tech-savvy or aren't really into netsec, his exploits are just going to go right over your head and you won't know the difference. And in that case, it's an awesome shoujo manga that is head and shoulders above the rest. Nice romance, cool characters, good pacing. But if you even know an iota of information about "hacking" (oh that term, oh how I hate it) you will see Dengeki Daisy go full retard about it and you will get very very annoyed.

pretty good stuff.
i started reading when there was already a good chunk of story out there, so i sort of binge read it. and it was really good. i LOVE the heroine, she's a strong female lead without seeming too annoying or being unfeminine. i dont know why, but i'm not in love with kurosaki. like, i have nothing against him but nothing about his character just ever made me excited for romantic development. i guess what i do like about their relationship is that teru (f. lead) wears the pants in the relationship. like their relationship is entirely dependent on teru, who is still a teenage girl. there's none of that unrealistic 'idgaf about society and how this is kind pedo-y, KISS ME TERU.' no, it's more "she's still a teenager, she shouldn't/won't see me as a man yet so i wont do anything" which i really love.
but post-reading binge i realize the plot isnt really sticking with me anymore. the villains are pretty bland, they need a little more than just "merrrr find daisy". i was hoping the jack o frost thing would turn into something a little bigger, but so far i'm not seeing much...
overall it's a decent read with really great art, attractive characters. highly recommended.
Why you MUST read DENGEKI DAISY
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
I love this series, hands down
The plot is very unique and original, and the story was neither dragging nor fast-paced. I never got bored of it, and actually, the more I read it, the more I got hooked. The pace of the plot gave enough time for the characters to develop, but it didn't drag long enough to lose my interest. And of course, the characters are just incredible. Kurosaki is an awesome male lead. He's handsome and smart, and I like the fact that he bullies Teru around, but behind the scenes he's doing everything he can to protect her. I really like the heroine, too. Teru isn't overly violent or air-headed and naive. Rather, she's smart, witty, funny, and I like the fact that she's quite girly, not tomboyish. She has her reckless moments too (which usually puts her in trouble) but she values her friends, knows how to stand up for herself, and besides, no one's perfect. I also love the fact that she cries and shows her emotions like a normal person, and yet still look strong. And the side characters are really interesting. Riko-sensei, the chairman, (former bully) Rena, and even Teru's bestfriends. They're all epic. Kurosaki and Teru's relationship is lovely and well-developed. I reeaaaallly adore their love story They have quite a large age gap but they go so well together that I don't even care xD
It has darker elements which may put off some shoujo fans (like my friends) but really, it's such an original, heartwarming, heartbreaking, funny, amazing, series.
very cute :)
the characters are all so beautifully drawn and the love story around teru and kurosaki is just so adorable! the other characters have been well written (and drawn!) as well, aiding to the plot and development of story and characters the recent chapters have been a bit wordy and but THE most recent chapter has returned to its former glorious cuteness it's very typically shojo however the main girl is smart and strong, not the typical crybaby! not the incredibly naive either! a must read for someone looking for shojo, funny and a strong heroine
The artwork is cute and funny sometimes. I like the way sensei create Daisy with such interesting personality. This manga reminds me of Glass mask with the plot of the "little girl's hidden protector" & st like "I will love him no matter how bad he really is". Daisy is somewhat like Masumi ^_< with so much struggles in his heart.

The characters are really charming - both the leads and the rest. Even the villains are entertaining.
I like the story a lot - a good mix of romance and plot.
Dengeki Daisy is a manga I would definitely not hesitate to recommend to anyone who is looking for a solid, interesting, unique, and well-executed plot. This is the first time I have come across such a perfect balace of drama, tension, romance, and comedy. Nothing gets too draggy, neither is the manga ever too extreme - and what I find is that the pacing and interweaving of the narration, character development and dialogue in-between deserves a firm 10/10. Never have I been so touched to the core that it actually "grips" me, and it's fascinating to see the tone alternate between Daisy and Kurosaki, creating somewhat of a harmonic dynamic despite their differences in reality. The choice of words especially, is what I would say is the high point. Daisy is hot too, which is always a major plus. Furthermore, this strays from the usual cliques in shoujo manga, so... ...Absolutely brilliant - and this comes from someone who (no offence intended!) is not into lolicon or anything to do with IT/computers - somehow I've managed to shock myself by getting addicted to Dengeki Daisy. READ IT.

This is just perfect
The comedy,the mystery (quite predictable but still surprising),the characters,the story,the art,everything. It's detailed and not so cliche. What I love about this manga is that both the guy and the girl understand each other,there's no need for misunderstanding drama or jealousy in here. Teru's type of female lead is very rare,I mean which girl would shows her navel? That scene made me literally lol. So she isn't the one who needs protection and do nothing. She can't fight,but she knows what to do and she gradually changes (she learns about what happened and not going to let it happen for the second time). She cries too,yes of course but there's a meaning behind it. Not just because she's hurt because the guy left him or blah blah in the typical cliche shoujos. She cries,then she tried to stand up again and look for a solution. She lets herself became a servant not because she's bullied but because she owes something. So about Kurosaki the baldie,he went through a lot in the past. Well anyone would feel they have an unforgivable sin if someone died because trying to save him,someone he loves,someone who for the first time understands him. The story? I would say perfect though there's still some parts that's left hanging,like 'who threw tables to Teru' or 'why did Sou suddenlt has cancer' It's not so important but I'm kind of curious so it bothers me a little. About the bad-guys (antagonist) characters,I love how Motomi Kyousuke made them bad because they had reasons. After all everyone is a human,there's no way that someone's bad just because she/he wants to be bad. There should be a reason. Ex : Rena,Takeda,Kiyoshi,etc.
Anyway it's recommended for those who're looking for dramas and mystery. This is good and hilarious. It's neither boring not cliche. It feels real and cute at the same time. You can't find cheesy misunderstanding in Motomi Kyousuke's mangas,all of her(his) manga's characters understand each other.
This series is not hard-core shoujo. If you're a hard-core shoujo fan and have no plans to read anything but that, you can stop reading this review and stop reading the manga. You're not going to get the sappy "high-school" romance that you want. I have to say, Motomi Kyousuke in this–––she definitely hit her high point. The character development is astounding, both in the main male character (in which it is obvious), and the female main character (where it is masterfully subtle). In its own way, the plot is gripping, allowing the reader to be pulled in by the romantic tension and suspense (from the mystery of her brother) without weighing down the whole story. There are shoujo elements which simply cannot be ignored, preventing a dark overtone. No matter how deep the characters get, I still have a reassurance that this manga will not end badly, nor will it be too morbid. That said, the general high points of the story are the character development and the main character herself. She is witty and intelligent, making for good dialogue interaction with the male lead. I also consider the plot to be a high point, despite that many have called it "slow." Compared to other shoujo, they are probably right, but if the plot were to move any faster, I think the story would lose so much. It would lose the ability to portray its characters in the proper light and its credibility as a "unique" shoujo. Some of the lower points of this manga are, in some places, the muddled plot and the art. Now art is subjective thing, but the art in this, unless you prefer this style, is not going to meet anyone's standards of typical, pretty shoujo. I, for one, like this manga-ka's style, but I thought I should point out the roughness of it. The other thing that prevents this series from being a 10 is the confusion surrounding the plot. While most of the time, the manga-ka does a wonderful job at keeping the suspense going without making it too heavy or overdramatic, she fails at the juggling act more than a few times. Sometimes I feel that in order to lighten up the mood, she adds a typical shoujo fluffy scene, but it ends up out of place, rather than a well-executed mockery of shoujo cliches. There is also the cloudiness surrounding each element of the "mystery." I put it in quotes, because it is actually quite predictable by shoujo standards. Each element of the mystery that is unraveled is generally quite lucid, but there are times when I just have to say "What?" as if she just made a mistake in revealing something or didn't tell the readers enough to want to finish reading. Thankfully, this has only happened a few times thus far.
All I can say is, if you're open to shoujo, read it. My only question would be, for how much longer can Motomi Kyousuke keep up the previously mentioned balancing act? After this series ends, I will probably adjust my rating to account for that.
