Left a positive enough impression on me to write something on it, but I'm very negative about it. I hate Kokoro so much

Asihiteruze Baby is pretty cute but awfully naive. It handles some interesting social dilemmas, but handles them either well, decently, or extremely poorly. The love interest for the main character, Kippei, is terrible. Kokoro sours the entire experience any time she's around. Otherwise there's good stuff here but I'm not exactly glad to have read this series. Wrote a review, you can see my full thoughts on it there.

Woh that's some crazy shit here. Nice and cute, touching BUT too much characters acting really weird around the kid it's disturbing and unwholesome.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Girl physically and mentally bullying the child just because she like the main character (and ending with nothing more than a small lecture !), another who speak to the child about how she want to die, who throw knifes and try to suicide in front of the child ! Like... Wtf girl ? Do what you want but don't disturb this poor little girl !

I didn't understand her logic. So she was having problems raising Yuzuyu after her husband's death so she just drops her on her older sister's family, but why didn't she just stay with them as well until she got on her feet? Kippei's family seemed totally fine with helping people out when needed and she was family, Kippei's mom's younger sister. The logic for her to abandon her child while she looks for a new man just made her come off as a completely awful person. She needed to grow stronger on her own so in case her next relationship doesn't work out, she doesn't repeat history. Frankly, this manga was really good, but the ending was kinda bad. I would have rather seen Kippei and Kokoro adopt Yuzuyu or even Kippei's sister. It seemed like it was going that direction when it just dropped on you that she was barren. Her adopting Yuzuyu would have made a lot of sense. Also what happened with Kippei and Kokoro?

I love this manga. It is very cute. But the ending is just
.. no...

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
so the mom come bck and get the kid. They say good bye.. and........ ??? Nothing. We don't know what hapoen to the romantic relationship. They show the kid as a teenager and possibly reunite w a boy from the kindergarten.. but that is it! We have no update for the MAIN CHARACTER! Like so is the girlfriend still live w him? Like forever? What about the sister? Will she live as a bitter woman forever? (Okay maybe bitter isnt the right word). But WHAT HAPPEN!?!? I hate open ending. LIKE WHY?!?! I dont need a happily ever after.. but just some sort of closer would be nice.. one more chapter would not kill you! Or just a few more pages! WHY!

This is one of those stories that starts strong, then around halfway starts to lose momentum. You can easily see where the story is going from early on, I mean if you think about it there's only one conclusion given the facts. Yuzuyu is totally adorable, but often times she feels less like a real person and more like a walking drama maker. Sure, she would probably be a little messed up but at times it just seems to go over the top.

I really wanted to like this story more than I did. I liked the premise a lot and the relationship between our two main characters was really nice to see. I liked watching Kippei mature as a person. But ultimately most of the drama here felt kinda artificial and the ending was kind of unsatisfying. Still cute though.

Watch the anime

This anime was one of my first that I watched around 5/6 years ago. I returned to it because I couldn't think of anything else with such an innocent feel-good mood. This really is a masterpiece- regardless of complexity and it's limitations, the mood it establishes is so secure and comforting.

The main characters are so lovable and their interactions never get old.

There are two things I really liked about this manga: the characters and the ending.
I'm not going to give away the ending, but I will say that this ending was one of the few manga endings that really did something for me.
However, while I like slow story progression, this one was a bit disjointed. I don't know, I guess it bothered me a little that there were all these little incidents and anecdotes that didn't really bring much to the main story.
All in all, I give this manga an 8 because I liked the main girl character, and the art was OK.

I started the series without any expectations. And at the end of the second volume, I'm bored. I couldn't find anything special so I dropped it. I hate dropping in the middle but there are so many other works to read that I feel it's a waste to continue half-heartedly.

Many times I've seen this manga, but always skipped it, I don't know why, but I would immediately skip it, maybe because I don't like mangas revolving around children too much :/ . Anyway, it was a pretty decent read, but I just couldn't help but to just scream at my laptop and grind my teeth on certain aspects of the manga. First of all, lets talk about the drama content. It went smoothly until around chapters 20 and up. It's like the author just said, lets just throw all cliched drama content and hope it sticks =_=. Soo many unnecessary cliff hangers and I just hated how everyone just relied so heavily on the main guy. Secondly, the author added to much useless characters who showed up in a few chapters, then disappeared completely in the next. The stalker chick, the abusive baseball player and even the chick with the little sister. They just vanished into thin air! never to be heard from again!. I wont even mention how completely annoying Yuzu was. Now don't get me wrong, I understand that her mom leaving her cause a psychological scar, but it was pretty unfair for her to say that she was lonely when other family members lived in the house as well and it seemed a bit unfair.
I'll give this manga one point higher only because the anime couldn't even compare to it. The art in the anime was ugly and the person who voiced yuzu was really annoying.

I love this series very much! I just finished this just 5 hours. Heartwarming, cute, and touching. I was crying on the last chapter, it's bittersweet. The author was doing really great job. Aih, I love Aishiteruze Baby!!
