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!

A very lighthearted atmosphere that makes you just smile for the rest of the day. The characters are realistic and not exactly your typical shoujo. The female heroine is perhaps my favorite of all the other heroines. She is smart, clever and not wimpy. She thinks and cares. She makes me smile with her little silly actions or her smart ones where she takes care of the two adorable twins. They make me smile too. The male lead is also likable, an adult who knows his boundary well.

Of course, it is shoujo and there is romance in it but it isn't I love you at first sight. There is development over a pretty long period of time. They get to know one another and they slowly bond. Definitely slice of life. We can just see some of this manga happening in real life. The care for the children, the orphans... A nice little read to escape from the other massive amount of crazy manga. Sweet and simple, an escape from reality...

delves into the sentimental a bit, but a light, sweet read. the lead is a 'good girl' with the distinction of being- at least- reasonably intelligent. the male lead is hot. there's no other word for it. it's pretty episodic, but we learn a bit more each chapter and the awareness of attraction between the two is snail slow- fitting for such an age gap story. everyone's so down-to-earth it's hard to fault the slightly excessive sentiment. very pleasant, not demanding at all and perfect as a diversion during the wait between updates of my favorites.

So kawaii and lovely
I don't like the fast love as love at first sight, i like slow, slow love like in this manga. It so cute when see two people attract and develop to loveby time pass time.
The twin so very very adorable, you can't stand with their cute.
Story so good, I like "slice of life" so this manga very fit with me, althought sometime I feeling I'm reading Yotsubato other version, but it's ok for me to continue.
If you are a fan of basic shoujo manga (not smut and insant love or something like that, blah blah), you can try to read it, I bet you will like it immediately.

This is debut of mangaka, I hope she will make it to long series, and if adapt to anime is so wonderful XD

I'm only comment for titles I love so much, so I give it 10/10, cause its very, very good manga
