SO CUTE! But the romance is frustratingly slow. Yet that's nice in its own way, because honestly romances where one party is under-age aren't met with the usual easy acceptance shoujo manga would have us otherwise believe. It adds a sense of realism. And I can respect that Matsunaga has his own moral code, which many shoujo heroes tend to forego as well. Love So Life (cringe-worthy title, but the content is worth it, believe me!) is a breath of fresh air from the usual shoujo cliches and stereotypes yet not so different that it is discomfiting. I'd even say that romance takes the backseat in this particular manga, which is rare indeed, yet the few hints of it, though sparse, remain satisfying. Definitely slow-paced, I wouldn't recommend this to impatient readers but those who appreciate a patient but steady sort-of not-quite romance with tons of great potential.

Adding pudgy toddlers to an adorable shoujo is a combination that works to please the fans, atleast I certainly was. A cute romance, with the cutest little chubs I've ever seen. While reading this the estrogen was seeping out of my skin.

Any one who has a nostalgic yearning for love should read this. Although Shiharu and Seiji don't delve into any particular romantic moments, it is a remarkable take on love that doesn't follow your typical shoujo model. Read it, you won't be disappointed, and most of the characters are lovable and show real maturity that is worth emulating in real life.

This is such a refreshing change from your fast-paced, usually stupid shoujo manga. There is actual DEVELOPMENT before the two main characters are madly in love. It's realistic and very cute!!

And is it just me, or is Shiharu like Tohru Honda (fruits basket) reincarnated? They have nearly the same personality, and the same mother-who-past history.

Seriously, the many positive things I can say about this manga (27 Chapters scanlated,as of now):

*I don't think it can technically be called a 'shoujo' persay because it doesn't even follow most of those annoying cliches wink The story is quite simple with little tension, but it captivates in an unexplainable way.
*Older, kind guy-younger, strong-willed female---they're likeable leads & the best part is they're both strong in many aspects---unlike many typical shoujo pairings, whose flaws outnumber their strong aspects. I genuinely care what happens to these characters though and I think this is the strongest aspect of this story.Although Shiharu seems to have a Tohru Honda-like personality,I feel she is much more intelligent than Tohru and isn't nearly as dense.
*The story is slow-moving, but this only makes it seem more realistic
*Did I mention the twins are too adorable?
*I'm always looking forward to the next chapters---it's always intriguing to see how the story will develop further

Highly recommended =]

This manga is awweeesssommmeee. Being a guy, i'm not usually into Shoujo stuff, but if you're into cute things or nice stories, then i highly, HIGHLY recommend this.
Those damn twins are killing me with their cuteness. More so than when i read Little House With an Orange Roof with the two little kids.
A very light-hearted manga (so far anyway..) which is a nice read

Oh my goodness!!! This is such a refreshing read, the cutest manga I've ever seen in my life, I can relate to the girl because I love children and I'm in an Early Childhood magnet in hihg school preparing to take care of kids my self. BUt besides that the kids are so adorable!!! And funny, teh story about the girl is sad and I tend not to like tragedies but it looks like shes finding her own happiness in these bundles of joy.

This manga is so cute! I usually don't like manga that focuses on little kids but this one is just adorable. The main character is strong and funny. The twins are so cute that they make me wish i could be their babysitter and their uncle is very huggable. The storyline is cute and easy to follow and i don't hate any of the characters. This is a great manga and i can't wait to see what will happen!
