Such a journey
I cried at least 10 times I'm not even joking.
This manga was such a journey. I'm going to say off the bat that not everyone is going to enjoy this because it's definitely a shoujo but it's not your usual sappy high school romance. It's more about the drama and development of relationships and characters more than the romance. I think the most important thing is that you can't go into this expecting romance. because you won't find it that easily. Teru and Kurosaki's relationship develops through their struggles and insecurities, situations thrown at them and how they deal with it together and not through your typical blushy atmospheric scenes where they swear their love for eachother. Yes, the romance is there but it's there in a less obvious and, in my opinion, a much more realistic way than your usual shoujo. That's one of the things that made me love this couple.
Leading on, Teru and Kurosaki are honestly one of the most believable couples out there. During the whole of the manga, you can see their relationship get stronger and stronger because of such situations. I can say the same to the main characters too. Teru has an amazing character development and so does Kurosaki, they learn to trust.

I especially love Akira. The things he went through were dark and it added a nice mature twist to a shoujo.
All in all, some of the best characterisations I've ever read.
The story is confusing as hell at times. It's intricate and interesting but I can see how some say it drags on and gets boring. There are a lot of sharp turns and things jump from one way to another quite quickly and I had to go over some chapters again to try and figure out what the story was trying to say. The explanations are wordy and use terminology that I didn't understand but in the end, it's worth it to understand.
I gave it a solid 10 although I do have to say,

the ending was super cute with the foreshadowing of the baby but it felt a little unfinished? Like I wanted to know what actually happened with their relationship after Teru left high school?

Multiple scanlation groups
Teru is the best female lead of any shoujo I've read! She's strong, smart, insightful, not romantically dense, doesn't create silly drama, and she contributes to the character development of the male lead. The relationship is totally believable and there's a nice friends vibe along with the romantic one.
My main purpose in writing this review is to note that multiple scanlation groups translated a number of the chapters, including the chapters (somewhere between 30 and 40) that give Kurosaki's entire backstory. One of the groups did an iffy job in translation and the text is quite confusing (if not incomprehensible), so if you're confused, look up the scanlations of the other group.
Some of the best characters you'll ever read.
It seems boring at first, but stick with it. This manga is one of my favorites, and I've now read hundreds and hundreds. The characters are all likable and charming, and the relationships are this manga's biggest strength. The plot is a little slow at times, but it absolutely picks up: you must be patient! In the meantime, both the light-hearted episodes and sadder, deeper chapters are all there for a reason. They build the character development so that the interactions make sense and are believable.
I highly recommend this manga. Teru is strong, reliable, and will impress you again and again. The story is fascinating and very different from the norm.
I think the story kind of tried too hard... it's nice that the work didn't JUST focus on the main characters' relationship but also the community that supports them. And the whole conspiracy thing was pretty interesting too. but in the end, it made the story drag on a bit, and put Teru and Takusu's budding relationship on the back burner. It had its funny moments (so many) and it also conveyed some life lessons. I just wish there was more about the romance plot and more lighthearted stuff even with Akira too. He was so cute at the end I wish there was more about how he and Kurebayashi Team got along :/ To conclude: it was an interesting read to say the least but it's not one of those mangas I would wanna go back and reread.
Laughter, tears and heartwarming moments
Dengeki Daisy has it all. Motomi Kyousuke has always brought strong, intelligent characters to her other works (particularly her heroines), but I think Kurebayashi Teru is in her own league. Kurosaki as well, of course - a conflicted hero who takes the role of "protector" to a whole new level and easily one of my favorites to date. Their relationship is one marked by such trust, understanding and absolute devotion that it's hard to separate them even in discussion or review. It's rare to have a series these days where the romance is so well-written and functional that you know they'll continue living happily down the line, even when the series ends and the pages run out, but Dengeki Daisy manages just that. Even the extremely likeable cast of supporting characters get their turn in the spotlight (Sou!), and the rollercoaster ride of a story is satisfactorily wrapped up. This is one story where you can be certain you won't flip the last page and think, "Huh? That's it?" It may have taken awhile to build, but Dengeki Daisy is memorable and well-worth reading - I don't know why it took me so long to pick it up.
Boring as hell
This one is impossible to finish. Starts out as an easy read that just flows quickly despite not being either very exciting or very interesting - just a slightly above average common manga. Then around the middle it changes tone and drags on, and on and on and ON. I simply lost the willpower to go on with it and despite a completionist streak I decided life's too short to spend on a manga that gives me zero pleasure.
Great Characters, Cliched Story
I've rated this manga so high because the characters in the story are amazing. They're what kept me coming back repeatedly. There are actual laugh-out-loud funny moments, and it doesn't rely too much on cliched behaviours (ie. the female lead constantly making the same mistake over and over, or issues because people won't communicate over basic things) there are some of course, but for the most part it steers clear.
That said the story is wayyyy over the top, and the romance just drags on and on and on with no real satisfying end, The two leads finally kiss and confess but there was never any doubt that would eventually happen so while it was kinda nice to see the fact it never progresses beyond that is a bit of a let-down.
I love the characters and the character interactions but in terms of plot I've seen better.
Started strong, but..
I am almost finished, but I will sadly be taking a break from it or not picking back up. I love the mangakas other work, expected the same from this, and at first it was entertaining. The story feels a bit dragged towards the middle through end. I hate to say this, but it probably should have ended earlier.
Dengeki Daisy SHOULD have been great. It's hilarious, for one thing. It's adorable, for another. The protagonist is hardly ever stupid, for a third.
Now, if only the mangaka actually knew what she was talking about when writing about computers.
Trying to make sense of Dengeki Daisy's backstory was stunningly painful. The term "codes" is thrown around everywhere and I don't even know what it's supposed to mean. Sometimes it seems to be some sort of encryption algorithm, and other times it seems to be some sort of encrypted data, and all of the time it just makes no sense. There was also a description of a legendary virus that made me want to weep.
Much the same as gratuitous English, there is much gratuitous hacking in this manga that doesn't actually make sense, but looks kinda cool. I guess that was to be expected, though.
So my advice for this manga is as follows: If you have a programming background, turn off your brain and enjoy the ride. It's a little bumpy, but really a lot of fun if you just don't research it too hard.

Fun at first but repetitively boring after 5 volumes
If you're a masochist or likes playing victim mentality (where MC is always playing the pitiful role with a sad past), then you'll like this series. If not, then don't waste your time.
That said, the manga started off great but after the third volume, you can tell that the author ran out of ideas.
1. The romance between the two MC develops very fast (within the first two volumes). However, it never progresses past the stage of confessing to each other. The reason? MC is too afraid to confess because of his "sad past" that will hurt her.
2. The mangaka tries to convey the idea of mistakes and forgiveness but its exection is terrible. Every villain introduced is blackmailed to betray their love ones or friends and acts like "I got blackmail so I have a valid excuse to betray you." However, they are always forgiven easily. It seems no matter what the villain do, the power of love or friendship can forgive anything.
3. The male MC is introduced as the most notorious hacker. He perform amazing hacking jobs for fun. However, when he's against a villain, he can't even hack a freaking website. What is the point of making him the notorious hacker
Plot devices #1 and #2 are used repeatedly. After reading volume 1, you find similarities in volume 2. Then, volume 3...is the same. Volume 4? Same. Volume 5? Wait, this is volume 5. Have they not learn they'll get betrayed? Oh wait, it's okay because they'll just forgive them at the end. What about the romance? It's the same "My sinful past will hurt you so I can't tell you I like you. Instead, I'll continue being a tsundere forever."
Terribly executed. Too repetitive. Way too illogical.
The entire time, I feel like I was reading a wannabe bible about mistakes, sins, confession and forgiveness.
