An interesting and relatively realistic triangle portraying complex emotions and growth

Rating: 9.0 / 10.0
A story about a couple living together with a teenage girl and the growing feelings between the females. The story focuses on the emotions and growth of the two. Especially the younger one is nothing like a static character as she grows significantly throughout the story and repeatedly surprises both other characters and the reader with her maturity. All main characters share the premise of their feelings having no place in their lives and suppressing them, but in different ways for each of them. I find all of them believable and interesting, though the male lead is portrayed a bit weaker than I would have liked.

What to expect:
- A relatively realistic triangle intertwined by different interpretations of feelings of love between a grown couple and a teenage girl.
- Character growth and detailed portrayals of conflicting emotions
- Well written character interactions
- Good pacing (opinions may differ, but I really liked it)
- Some fluff, some angst and believable drama inducing a nice journey of emotions in both the characters and the reader.
- an overall satisfying but rushed ending (this is where I subtracted a point). The story had potential to be double as long in my opinion. I hope for complementary material in the future.

What not to expect:
- One-dimensional or "cute" (a.k.a. naïve) characters (well, one particular side character was a bit disappointing, but it did not disturb the flow too much)
- Yuri
- cozy comedy (has a little of it, but clearly focuses on other themes)
- random lazy-writing plot twists (a drama without a car crash and without randomly evil aunts, yay!)
- A quick read (The story is relatively long and should be even longer, settle for a nice slow one)

Bottom line:
I absolutely loved this one and compulsively checked for scanlation updates daily just because of this manga. I liked it for the relatively realistic and serious tone, the believable drama, the portrayal of complex emotions and thoughts, and well written character interactions. I name this my favorite manga, despite the minor drawbacks I mentioned above.
I am now eager to reread the story as soon as I can spare a day.

Additional note: This manga is VERY similar to Ani no Yome to Kurashite Imasu, if you like one then you will like the other, too. https://www.mangaupdates.com/series.html?id=128136
