So sad yet adorable

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 ;-)

i really did enjoy reading this manga.. although the story and plot were a little bit weak which i didn't like at all, and also (possibly spoilers so don't read on) the ending was a kind of fast, and it would have been better if they explained a little more about what happened to the other characters..other than that i guess it was ok. oh, and i thought it was cute that shou-chan came back =D

This series was really cute and adorable. The ending made me cry though! But this story has a very good plot and its very addicting and the characters are adorably cute, I dont usually read things like this I tend to stick more to shounen but this is a really good series and I would defiantly reread this one!
