Something about Yamada Yugi is magical. Though her art is a bit shaky and weird at times, something about the way she creates plots and characters really adds something to her works that make it out of the norm. Bokunidatte libun ga Aru, really shows that. It's adorable and really worth reading.

I loved it. Yamada Yugi is awesome! This story is really cute, and Shin-chan is especially cute. A little slow, but cute. ^_^ And his relatives. . . they're just crazy. ><;; But there's a great mix of humor and light drama, and you continually learn new things about the past of the characters as you go, which makes for an engaging read. I think the whole manga's worth reading just for the part where Shin-chan goes to see Satoshi off... So funny! XD And then there's the relatioship between Hashimoto and Oikawa. It's... cute? More like wierd, but fun!

I totally agree with bromide. The story is really rushed and there is a new twist every chapter! But the characters are likable, eventhought I didn't find them well developed..

ps.: I gave it a 5.0 because of the rape. And specially because of the scene where
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
the sempai forces himself on Shintarou. It's absurd how he only stops when he finds Shintarou hasn't had sex with Satoshi and not when he told him to stop or tried to get away from him.

I found all of the characters quite likable, personally. I think the whole rape thing was largely a joke in this instance(as in, I'm pretty sure everyone wanted everything happening, and if they didn't, it stopped). Anyway, this was a cute story. Yamada Yugi rarely fails me and this is no exception. I wouldn't say it's my favorite of her works, but it is certainly above average. I love the characters and their interactions. No one is perfect here and some people make terrible mistakes, but a) welcome to real life, and b) they all mean well. My biggest complaint with this particular series is that the main character is just slightly flat/brain dead. I would have liked to see him fleshed out more. Because this is largely a comedy though, It didn't stop me from enjoying it. Overall this is a great, quick read and I definitely recommend it.

There were a couple of noticeable flaws in this manga. The art was not too grand and the plot seemed rushed and odd at times. It's almost as though the mangaka had planned on drawing a 3-4 volume manga, and then been told to cut it down to one volume and finish it within a month. Despite that, it's a great story. The characters are well developed in terms of actually having a history, and their interaction is alternatingly cute and hilarious. The character Satoshi is particularly likable, one of my favourite semes.

It's a rare yaoi that can tug at my heartstrings and make me laugh out loud, and Yamada-sensei did both. I would love to have a family (and a love) as loud and crazy, but loving as this one.

Ah, this is one of those rare manga which have such an awesome story, that the bad art is negligible. I'm not saying the art is ugly, it's just not my taste, but it didn't bother me at all (doesn't happen often). sometimes it was even pretty funny, just as the hilarious and original story ^_^ highly recommendable

i couldnt stand the best friend, he interferes with his friend getting a partner and yet its okay for him to find other people to sleep with. also, why in the world would you keep being friends with a guy that tries to rape you, and why didnt he fight him off? isnt he a man? i really didnt like this story it was full of unlikable characters!
