From Viz:

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.

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 thisĖĖĖshe 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.

The plot is well written, and the characters seem realistic enough. In fact, I hate those guys who are all bad boy, and I hate the girls who super air-headed and naive. Kurosaki is one of the most favorable characters you'll ever come across with it. He is humorous and good-looking. I also like the fact that he isn't one of those male characters who have superior strength or anything.

Teru is very funny and silly. She isn't one of those naive girls who don't know what to do. In fact, she is the complete opposite: heroic, witty, intelligent, etc. She and Kurosaki will be the perfect pair. Also, I love the art. It's better than most others, and plot is very original.

I disagree with @emziepiex3. true high schoolers may like sappy scenes but a good manga should not rely of these scenes to be good. the more subtle the romance is, the better. It's the tension that makes it good, not the actual moments and this manga does it very well. Character development and the way of thinking should take priority over romance scenes. i prefer reading what the characters are thinking and what motivates them in acting rather than scenes of kissing, hugging, etc, etc...that's just lust. In a way, over romantic scenes, that can be seen in manga done by mangakas like arina tanemura is frankly, cheap and immature.

It's very lovely manga, and if you hadn't read it, I immediately recommend you to read it. Uncommon story, you could call it a gem. I want it to be completed, since I want the two to hurry up and get together. This manga is just one of those mangas that make you think "this is it." If I were to mention any flaws, it would be that there are too many rescues in this manga. One is fine, two is okay, but I'm pretty sure I'm used to them by now. ==

It has that humorous kinds of characters like from Lovely Complex. I love how Motomi sensei has a unique style of art and is capable of creating lovable characters- not to mention the very cute bishies... =^^=

A Strong heroine is always welcomed in my book. Dengeki daisy manages a good balance between humors and drama. Even when the manga reaches its dark part, the mangaka sucessfully avoided overdramatizing the angst. The result is that of heartfelt moments and relatable characters. Any manga thatcan make you laugh and then cry a few moments later deseves to be on everyones reading list. Highly recommended.

I read this because of the overwhelming amount of positive reviews it had. I admit itís a cute and really sweet story, a definite recommendation for shoujo fans, but the pacing is kind of slow. It does pick up a bit midway, but itís still less plot-oriented than what I expected. Iíve read most of it now (Iíve tried reading multiple times) but I donít find myself eagerly flipping the pages. Itís got this mellow, genuine feel to it, but Iím not really dying to see the next chapters either because itís very slice-of-lifey. The art is pretty good though. The heroine is strong but not kickass per se, just more of a normal girl who is pretty grounded but holds onto the idea of Daisy very unwaveringly. Sheís not annoying at all and quite funny, so if thatís what youíre looking for in a heroine, this is a good bet. The guy is not the typical jerkface who is cold and then is actually sweet and whatnot. Heís rather different, and itís nice that their relationship is very real and portrayed with depth. I would generally recommend this manga, but I canít say itís my type either because though thereís character development, thereís not enough of a plot to keep things moving.

Throughout the first half of the manga, they were hyping up the hacker guy as some sort of Japanese Tim Berners-Lee.

And then we get to see his bookshelf.

Dude's got like, what? Intro to Ruby? A Cocoa book? Really? I was expecting at least a few volumes of TAoCP on there. Maybe the dragon/wizard/dinosaur books too. Hell, he should AT LEAST have a copy of K&R, considering what he does for a living.

I was extremely disappointed.

Does this manga get better? It seems to have a lot of great reviews but I'm just bored when I read this :s the characters are likable and the comedy is well done, but i feel there is something lacking in the plot to keep me interested. It's very episodic - one bad guy per few chapters...then there's the huge overall plot that the manga keeps hinting at but never really dives into. I really hope it gets more interesting....i dont feel that the plot is engaging at all, at the moment..

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.
