Description
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.

too much to say..

too many things to say.. Teru is the best heroine i've ever encountered. If you read the translations, you can tell that her character develops immensely.. As for kurosaki, he's damn funny and loyal to her brother, which is why he tries to help teru and stops himself from getting too close to her.. Im on ch 42 and so far, I have never regretted reading this one bit. I have to say it can possibly be the best shoujo manga out there, considering the fact that the author is a guy. He is also the author of Beast Master. This has already been licensed which proves how great the manga is.

EDIT: Got boring. Dropped. Waiting for a release every month just to see more computer wizard stuff... yeah, I'm not that tolerant. I wanted more romance from this (there certainly is, but I want it every chapter BAHAHAH) but that's just me. smile

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

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.

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

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.

all i gotta say is WOW, i cant belive it the guy actually has a personality, most anime guys of his gener follow sterio type, they do preverted things to the herion untill she falls in love with him, or they are emo losers , he seems to care about the herion lots, plus hes actually a complex guy, she is a really grate charcter herself she dosent cry over nothing, and shes the most loyal friend ive ever seen, she is so funny somtimes, and the plots good to and its always interesting, its a funny touching mysterious read i really would recomend it to everyone, no one could hate this manga,

I loved this manga and have been following it since it was first released as a scanlation. The love story between Teru and Kurosaki was well-paced, and thankfully it didn't follow formulaic shoujo. In itself, it's pretty unique, as much as most of the mangaka's works, involving the theme of technology and action which I think is more on the side of seinen. It's always wonderful to read a female lead that isn't overly tsundere or an overall weak-willed crybaby. For a 16 year old, Teru has matured into a strong young woman.

On another note, I don't know why a lot of people complain about the age gap. In the first place, this manga was already tagged with the 'Age Gap' category. I don't think you can call a manga an 'age gap manga' unless the MC's have at least 5 years between them, otherwise it's like reading a manga about childhood friends and such. Even 5 years isn't that much of a gap, it all depends on a person's maturity and we all know that it doesn't equal with age. If you compare this manga to reality, it would even look a lot more ideal/better.

In reality, once a kid steps into adolescence, more often than not, they've already started experimenting with sexuality - even 11 year old kids engage in relationships (I think THAT is more disturbing than this manga's age gap theme).

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
The ending was a little bit anti-climactic, what with Teru being hit more than once and then fainting, only to wake up when Kurosaki puts an onigiri in her mouth. I thought it was funny, but at the same time, "Didn't the mangaka have at least any other ideas to go about it?"

Akira was sooooo cute with his hair all cut up!!

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 smile 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. smile

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.

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.
