Description
From Go! Comi:

When her grandmother passes away, high-school student Kajitsu Toda suddenly finds two hot stepbrothers and an adorable little stepsister dropped in her lap! Kajitsu and her step-siblings have only one thing in common: they were all abandoned by their parents. Against the odds, they've pulled together to form a family without grown-ups. They don't want charity, they don't want pity... they just want their dignity!

Things are particularly tough for Kajitsu and her step-brother Natsu. As kids, they were as close as any true siblings. Now, reunited for the first time in seven years, they've grown as far apart as two people can be. Can they ever become friends again? And can two high school students living together, even as "siblings" ever escape scandal?

I didn't like it at the beginning... But it got better as I read towrads the end, so I finished it. Nice composing, by the way. It's simple, but very amusing. Can't say "WOW bestseller", but it is deffinetly something interesting.
Ah, and size(7 vols) was just about right. Feels like a complete story - which is rare for manga these days. "5-7" - favoriter vols... hehe

I must say I really doubted this manga at first, but after I started reading it, for the oddest reason I became really addicted. I think it was because of how real and down to earth the story seemed, rather than the typical cheesy love story. It was also very touching, and I really liked the character development.

I really like this manga. The heroine is unique and isn't your typical shoujo manga heroine that's weak. The only complain I have is that she didn't end up with who I wanted her to be with, but it's still good.

This was a lot of fun to read. I thoroughly enjoyed the style and pacing. It had an assortment of comedy (from off-the-wall to slapstick to random), low angst that still hit some nice dramatic high notes, and best of all, great characters.

The character development and the flow of the story is what kept me in. Kaijitsu's growth was quite enjoyable to watch. The story flowed well going from character to character while keeping Kaijitsu in the middle of it all. In that aspect, it kinda reminded me of series' like Kare Kano, where the story isn't just about one or two characters.

Ah, I also enjoyed the more mature approach to the relationships. This is definitely Shoujo but it didn't have as much of that "Shoujo fluff" for relationships. That was a treat.
Spoiler (highlight to view)
With all that said, I have complaints with the last couple volumes. As was noted by someone below, the story regressed towards the end. Things changed a bit in the story, especially regarding Natsu. Kaijitsu's growth was exciting to read but Natsu evolved into something a bit different than expected. This leads in to how I feel the ending was a bit cheesy.

Additionally, the side stories had lots of love when they were building up but most of them got closed off too quickly. It's as if Mizuki Shioko ran out of time and had to suddenly finish things off.

Though I have complaints, as a whole, I really enjoyed this series. It was a relatively light read with fun characters. Definitely worth checking out.

Spoiler (highlight to view)
She didn't fall for the right guy!!! How could the mangaka do this to me?! GAH!!
nways, that whole step-brotherxsister angle did not work for me. But its a light read, not too bad, but honestly ppl do not expect too much. ^__^

Despite the fact that this /is/ shoujo with one of your common plots, I love the humor and the characters. =) And, yes, at a point it was sort-of addictive. I guess I just wanted to finish it the moment I started it, LOL.

When I first started reading Crossroad, I really liked it. Although, I really disliked the ending. That's why I gave it a 7. It was really good in the beginning but then it really started to loose its appeal to me in the last two volumes.

This one is so enjoyable and fun to read, the characters are likeable, and the main heroine isn't you typical brainless,spineless character, it's refreshing and i recommend it to every one.
