All Miki Koishikawa wanted was an ordinary family and that's exactly what she had until her parents decided to move in with another couple (as in switching spouses!) and turned Miki's world upside down. Now she lives in a house with four parents and her totally cute stepbrother, Yuu. It's bad enough being brought into her parents' strange soap opera, but Miki will star in a soap of her own as she deals with friends having affairs, trying to survive in school and ending up torn between her long-time crush, Ginta, and her new stepbrother!

Slow development

I don't know if it is that new manga in the same genre are faster developing the story nowdays but I found this one to be way too slow. it has its funny and memorable moments but nothing outstanding. I found the ending a huge waste of time as it took a couple of volumes for something stupid. Read only if you are a soup opera freak.

I am a guy and I read shoujo also. I really really dislike this manga. I gave it a 5 instead of a 1 because i did not want to bring the average down too much. Since it seems other people really enjoy it. But this is one of my most hatest mangas. The reason i dislike it is the main characters. The main girl is completely in love with the main boy no matter how cold he is. And the main boy does not seem to show any signs of affection for the main girl through out the whole series. Yet in the end they end up together. Their is little to no character development in between the first and last volumes. It is like chapter 1 he is very cold to her. And than in the final chapter he loves her. The main flaw of this manga is the character development. This work has the same problem as her other work Kimi Shika Iranai. Which had a similiar deus ex machina, out of nowhere, lovely ending. Although I did like Minta Na Bakura. Yes I read all 8 volumes.
