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.

It's just sad how overlooked this manga is... it has one of the most intriguing plots I've ever read...and the main characters are simply adorable,the heroine is indeed not something you would usualy choose for a leading role.
I love it...and I hope that maybe someone will decide to continue scanlating it

This is what we call shoujo manga!! I was neither impressed by the title nor the summary, but i've been addicted to this wonderful manga since the first chapter.

Most of the main characters are quite unique. But they are very attractive. The plot is not that excellent, however, once you've read you can't stop. So, i highly recommend this to all of you, shoujo fans.

After reading, i just want to bring a fat puppy named Yuri home. T____T

All the characters including the heroine are really well done: comedic, non-annoying with distinctive very likeable personalities. The storyline is well-paced and unfolds naturally. I really like this series (thus far up to 7th volume) and highly recommend this to all you shoujo manga fans out there.

Indeed, this is a wonderful manga. I've never seen a main character like Yuri! She's enchanting, and her family members are unique. If you like a plot, this is the manga for you. And the art is nice too!

Yosh! I love this manga. Just bought the books in Japanese, looking for a translator so Aerie Scans (aeriescans at gmail.com) can pick it up. And I've seen around 17 episodes of The Rose drama. It's so funny. Follows the manga really closely, but too bad the subtitles aren't out past the released story yet...;.; *awaits arrival of books though she won't be able to understand them because her Japanese isn't good enough yet* wheeee~

this story is so heart warming!! Besides, only a few manga feature a cute and chubby girl as the main character.

btw, a taiwanese series, The Rose, starring Ella and Jerry Huang was adapted from this manga 2 yrs ago i think.
