From Viz:
Kippei Katakura is a 17-year-old playboy who spends his time chasing girls, careless of their feelings. But when his 5-year-old cousin Yuzuyu comes to live with his family after her mother's sudden disappearance, Kippei is put in charge of taking care of her. As Kippei gets to know Yuzuyu and starts to understand how she feels, he also begins to realize that all girls were like Yuzuyu once.

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!

I've watched the anime before and I stopped watching it for some reason. Then recently, I read the manga and I like fell in love with it =D. Yuzuyu is SO cute and the relationship between Kippei and Yuzuyu is just to die for. The ending almost made me cry but that's okay because the story is very touching. I totally reccomend this manga because of the plot (mainly) and how cute the art can get.

I liked the story. I enjoyed reading it. I couldn't even stop... I do think, though, that the ending was quick. It was fairly predictable in some parts. But the way, the showed it was amazing. It was great reading. So much drama, though.

Simply the most adorable thing

One thing which comes to mind when you think Aishiteruze Baby is cute. I've endlessly "awww..."-ed over Yuzuyu (she's just soooo adorable!!) and Keppei & Yuzuyu's relationship the former being simply the cutest thing I've ever seen. Kokoro's and Keppei relationship is also nice but doesn't stand out as much as KxY...the latter is probably the whole point of the manga.
The length was good, nothing was repetitive 'cause, well, the manga itself was pretty short and it had all the elements of a good story - comedy, drama romance and...Yuzuyu-chaaaaann!! And it's always funny to watch Kokoro & Yuzu get jealous over Keppei. biggrin
There were few things to detest about it - I felt the ending to be a bit too rushed and well..if they'd have thrown in a few more pages of older characters it'd be a great tie up for me. And Shou-chan moving away (c'mon..he was cute too! And you gotta admire the strength in the kid for not ratting out his mom. Not to mention his relationship with Yuzu was too kawaii!)...but well, he returns in the end so that's fine...there could be more of him!
Overall a good read. Recommended to all.

It was worth the read. But of course,at some scenes I was really pissed off at how stubborn Yuzuyu is,BUT, it makes her even more kawaii ^__^. I was happy Kokoro and Kippei ended with each other.But I wish the guy who liked Kokoro [i think he was introduced around volume 4 or 5] was nice in the end, he would've been one of my favorite characters! But all in all,Aishiteruze Baby is a heart-earming story including romance,friendship and family :]

Such a heartwarming story. Everything is pretty perfect here, except for the Kokoro/Keppei relationship. The fight, longing stare, make-up kiss sequence between them got old fast. I'm glad Keppei wasn't the major player the beginning made him out to be, because I would've felt so bad for Kokoro. The strength she had at the start melted into this kind of dependence on Keppei. I guess this is a good thing though because it shows some character development in both. Did Keppei suddenly become good through caring for Yuzuyu? Maybe under the tough exterior, Kokoro was always frail?

This manga is amazing, if you have any restrictions against shoujo I can tell you that this doesn't feel like it at all.
Good plot and good romance, the only thing that wasn't good was the ending which felt rushed. They definitely could've lengthened the story much more, it was so good.

ok, this one of the few shoujo's ive read, and it is one of my favorites. only thing i did not like was the ending, after all that happened it should of ended better
Spoiler (highlight to view)
to get into detail but not to much detail, what i didn't like about the ending was that after all the hard ships he went through i felt like he was left holding the bag. (if you dont get it figure it out) I dont have many characters i hate but the mother is one of them, you leave your child for pretty much a half year, en lope with another man and you have very little reason for doing so, i would not let you get 100 feet from the child, phewwwww srry for the rant but the letter Yuzuyu sends at the end made it feel right

Beautiful drawings, nice story

When I heard about the story, I thought: "Oh no, come on..." but when I saw the drawings, I adored Maki-sensei suddenly ^^ I started to read it with volume 5 and the drawings are so beautiful, the lines are very clear etc. I was interested in the love story about Kippei and Kokoro but the story ended and I wish that we could have known, what happened with the other characters :'( I started to love this manga, but I really have to say, that I was more interested in Kippei, Kokoro, Aki, Motoki etc and not in Yuzuyu... but if you like beautiful drawings and stories about father/mother/child or brother/sister stories (know, what I mean?) than it's perfect for YOU ;-)
