Loved it.

Gorgeously told, where the somewhat substandard art gets completely eclipsed by the sheer humanity of the characters. You get attached to all of them, even tanuki-san Hinoyama, and fall absolutely in love with the whole Fukuyoshi brood, in-laws and all. One of the few mangas that had me absolutely in knots with its scenes; heart-wrenching, moving. There is something sweet and simple about this manga that makes it light yet poignant. Three different forms of love showcased in its three different sisters. A truly wonderful story, although I felt the end was a bit of a let-down in comparison to the rest of this flawless tale.

My friend recommended this series and I was kinda hesitant to read this. I thought it started in 1995 so the art is never good. But the art turned out to be okay, the kimonos are so beautiful and Ken-chan is so handsome :x
The story is really good, much much better than what I expected. It made my eyes wet at so many parts but never to the point that I could cry, cause after some bad thing happens, everything is solved, and I'm so happy that couldn't cry. I really love the romance in this series, especially the couple Arare and Kenji. I can see somewhere in Arare the picture of me: a straight-forward, hot-tempered, fun-loving girl who wants to be loved smile

I'm surprised this doesn't have a higher rating.

The art isn't great, though honestly the only big problem I had with it was the way the eyes were drawn. But besides the art everything else was really good. The plot was interesting and the character development was great. I loved the focus on each individual character, though I found myself more interested in Arare than the other two sisters.

The scanlators addition of pictures of traditional Japanese confections was fun and informative too. But I'm a little sad most of them included bean paste, since I don't really like it.

I've been reading this from the beginning and despite the scrappy art (which can be accustomed to after some time), I actually really like this one. Something about this manga makes it incredibly enjoyable; I don't know whether it's the thought of sweets and wagashi, or the realism. The story and plot is very charming and well-flowed, giving a vibe that separates and differentiates this from other josei.

On a personal input, out of the three sisters I've come to favour Arare a lot for her tremendous character development compared to her sisters. The other two sisters, Hina and Hana, come across weaker to me even when their stories came to light.

Also praise for the scanlators for keeping an amazing pace on releasing this manga frequently.

The summary and the cover does not do this manga justice. I think manga these days are improving in art definitely, but the quality of story is declining. Fukuyadou Honpo is refreshing and unique. It brings something new to the table. This manga is definitely one worth reading. The characters are so well developed, and the plot is impeccable. I am so grateful that this series is being scanlated. Stick with the art for a bit. I, for one, was okay with it, but there seems to be people that don't appreciate it as much. Once you get past it, you will be so thankful that you stuck with the series. READ IT!

This is a great manga for those who like josei series, slice-of-life manga, traditional Japanese culture, unique and strong female leads, family stories, and slow romances. The three siblings, the mother, the men, their relatives... everyone has a truly unique personality and an interesting story in their past. The art is the sort of loosely-defined, flowy 90's art and the standard of beauty may not be the same as the current manga standard, but the characters are all charming in their own way.

I love the sense of Kyoto culture you get at the very beginning. You also get a sense of familial ties and duties in Japan, of the insidious way scandal creeps into the home (although it's not so dramatic as I make it sound), and of the strange love/rivalry relationship between siblings. This story has a lot of startling realism mixed in, and the surprises and plot twists integrate well into the story flow. Even the dramatic events keep the same slow-paced feeling.

The ending is not so important as the process to get there. Each week I come away wanting more, yet satisfied with the latest chapter. It's a series definitely worth waiting for, and the scanlator has been very consistent for the last half-year in releasing it. Highly recommended.

Considering how this series started in 1995 and then thinking about other works that came out from that period, it's definitely easy to forgive in the drawings dept. Other than that, this is a pretty good manga series. It took awhile for me to warm up to reading this because I thought it was going to be boring and the fact that it was 11 volumes. I didn't want to invest my time reading only a few chapters/volumes and be left hanging in the middle because it wasn't scanlated all the way. But thank goodness that the scanlators are very consistent in their releases, which was why I attempted to read it in the first place I immediately got hooked after reading the first volume. The storyline is pretty good. It's definitely a breath of fresh air reading this. I like how each sister gets their own story and that the entire story is not on romance alone, but also deals with the family itself and the life revolving their shop. (hmm, I thought this was a slice-of-life genre, but I guess they took that down.) It's somewhat obvious what's going to happen in the end, but I think the way the mangaka delicately (or strategically) mapped out the storyline, makes this a worthwhile journey to take up.

Since there is such a narrow selection of translated josei manga, finding one this good is quite the catch. Seriously, it's been a a while since not one of the characters annoyed me. Here, all of them are very different, not stereotypical at all AND they don't cease to strike me as charming as I'm looking forward to reading a new chapter every week. You actually can't predict what's going to happen next, which is very rare. Overall, it's a great read. Definitely recommended.

Well, I have to say it's a good manga for those interested in the japanese culture, since there are some stuff explained about the shop and the stuff they sell there (plus the translator notes on the sweets is really nice), about Kyoto and some other references. Other than that, the plot is character driven, focused on the three sisters, their interaction and their life in general. As a josei manga, I say it's among my favorites.
