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.

The kind of thing even a shojo hater can love
I hate shojo, but I love this.
First of all, the plot is unique. While you don't know too much of the plot from where the story is now, there are various hints throughout the series that tell you that there is something big up. It's mysterious behind-the-scenes stuff like this that makes the manga so exciting.
The story that we are shown at face value is actually very good too. It's like a master servant romance but much much deeper because the characters are well developed, have their own anxieties and fears, and there is that lingering mystery in the background.
Characters are 3-demonsional, interesting, and sympathetic.
Comedy is top-notch in this one, I laughed out loud many times. It's just so sweet. Romance and drama are very touching.
While this manga does have some minor flaws and cliches I say it is one of the best manga and worth checking out if you want something different and refreshing. Even I liked it
Its a really great series, as someone who usually doesn't care for shojou series that does mean something. It gets a little tedious after a while though.
Spoiler (highlight to view)
Especially when Teru finds out that Kurosaki is daisy, in her crisis of acting like she doesn't know you're just waiting for her to tell him. Then later on he knows she found out, and when you get into situations like "she doesn't know that he knows that she knows" and "he knows that she doesn't know that he knows that she knows" you just want to punch everyone in the face. It would seem though that the situation of mutual understanding would only come at the series' end. Hopefully between now and then the story will pick up.
I think all fans eagerly await the ending because it has the potential to be epic. (If its sad, more face punching is sure to ensue.)

good but it was dragging too much for me
I read into the 40's kind of, then I put this series on hold. I have 5 english volumes; the beginning of the series was cute but also dramatic and romantic. Once the series got around volume 10, and there was still no kissing or anything, I didn't have a big problem, but I felt like the series was being unnecessarily dragged on. Don't get me wrong, I like it and I see the appeal, and maybe I need to go back and read it over again now that it's gone on, but it was like I personally wanted more in terms of story and romance and it wouldn't get there for me. But, maybe it's already there. I might find out eventually when I decide to pick it up again
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.
hooked me by the first chapter
this manga is so good. once you start reading, you'll be asking for more. i've heard of motomi kyousuke's other works, but never got attracted to the art. this series totally changes my opinion of his works. all the characters are lovable and you'll be surprised by how strong and smart teru is.

Yea the romance is slow, but it's HILARIOUS. The lead female is awesome, male lead is adorable, the story is profound, and all the characters are likeable (which is an important aspect in a long running series). This has top ratings in my shoujo royalty (skip beat, ouran high school host club, wallflower, sailormoon, yasuko to kenji, ao haru ride, sa, etc). I look forward to the progress of this wonderful, inventive, and creative series.
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.
If there's one thing shoujo mangakas should learn from this manga, it's the art of creating an intriguing story.When I started reading this manga,I thought it would be just another manga about the trials and tribulations of an age difference romance.Boy was I wrong!!
After reading 39 chapters,it still manages to leave me wanting more.The story is more than merely a petty romance---it has depth and dimension.The characters are lifelike and their motivations become my motivations because the mangaka makes me want to care what happens to them.I think this is what makes this manga so beautiful---the story seems simplistic,but its execution is absolutely captivating.
------- EDIT: I'm lowering my rating for this manga because the hacker plot is extremely boring now and I feel this manga should have concluded a while ago.

I expected the story to be as lame as the title but I was pleasantly surprised. Teru is very likeable as the main character. She is strong yet still able to be silly at times. She is able to stand up for herself when she needs to not just relying on DAISY to come and save her even though she asks him to. I think the thing that makes her stand out from your average shojo heroine is that she seems like a normal girl. Such a simple thing that not a lot of shojo artist seem to get right.
Like Teru, Kurosaki has a lot of depth and character as well. It is the mystery behind his past and his motivations that really drive the story. Itís not just a simple ďand then they fall in loveĒ story. The way he interacts with Teru is genuinely sweet at times, even when heís feigning meanness. I get very tired of reading about heroís that are just perfect and never do anything wrong, or even if they do itís an exception or treated as if itís okay because they did it. The story questions if the heroic things he does are really good. Hacking for instance if, even when itís used for good, it should still be considered a crime.
The story is unique and interesting. Even though the mangaka is a guy, he knows how to write a good romance story. It didn't bore me to death *whisper* And I get bored easily! I recommend to who ever like actions, comedy, school life, and romance all in one.
