Our heroine, Ruu, is having a hard time. Her mother died when she was little, and her father, with whom she had been living, has disappeared without a trace after getting into debt. Ruu is on her own.
To make ends meet, she takes a job as a live-in maid for a very wealthy household. To Ruu's surprise, the house she ends up working at is the home of three cute brothers, and she already knows one of them! They agree to let Ruu work there because they are often alone and they could use the help. Ruu moves in and works hard as a maid, and they all become very close. But things aren't always smooth sailing. Ruu has a lot of pressure on her because of her father's debts, and three very cute guys to deal with!

I really was not expecting much with this one but it was hillarious i loved the art and the story was fun, sort of like fruits basket without the supernatural and so much drama. The only downside was that it was not longer and no actual relationship was established but oh well we cannot get everything.

I was all for it...but can that really be considered an ending? The story is so great, but the characters never fully developed. I mean they went through the trouble of beautiful artwork and everything...all to be left with the crappiest ending ever. It's somewhat like a dangling modifier in a sentence; it's there and makes you question why.

It's a great story, but it's about an 8 because the ending was so poor ^.^

I read many mangas and was a bit dissappointed that it was only 2 volumes. I was looking forward to the whole thing too...the main character has a blend of many characters like torou in fruit basket.
It was worth reading though, not to mention the sweet comedy as well.

From 2010:
The first time I came across this manga (incomplete) it caught my eye. I thought it would be another 'Fruits Basket', excluding all those animal stuff. When it did finally ended, I was sad that this story only lasted 2 volumes. But still, I've been re-reading this manga for more than 5 times, but it still never fails to make me laugh. I recommended it to many of my classmates, and all of them fall in love it. That just says how wonderful this manga is.

I'd have to admit, it was kind of sad that the story ended without showing who ended up with Ruu, but still I guess it's difficult to choose between 3 guys who treat her equally well.

But I would love a sequel. A 3-5 volumes would be great for me ><.

From 2017:
It's been 7 years since I last visited this website and this manga. 7 years older, this manga has lost a bit of its charm as compared to when I was 7 years younger. However, I will still give it a 10/10 over and over again, simply because it had been a happy paradise for me.

Omg, I lovee this series waay too much. It gave me so many big laughs and it's just too funny. I'm glad that she didn't really end up with any of them, since it was such a hard choice choosing. The youngest brother is definitely funny and cute, and I just love it so much. The author could have made the ending a little bit more interesting but I guess it's alright. If you want something romantic and funny, this is something for you. The drawing is very amazing, and man, I can't explain how much the story made me laugh, it was just too much. I can't stop reading it, hahaha biggrin

This one starts decently enough if you can ignore how unlikely it is that three rich boys are going to first hire a poor girl to work for them then essentially unofficially adopt her into their family. The general premise is hardly unique, but it feels like the mangaka got bored with it and rushed it to an ending just to get it over with.

Okay, I really, really liked this manga - it made me laugh a lot! But the ending just kind of...killed it for me.

Spoiler (highlight to view)
There was no real relationship developed, although Ruu and Yuzuki were kind of hinted at, and her father never paid off his debt. Actually, the second-to-last chapter felt like more of an ending then the actual final chapter did.

I just felt that this manga had so much potential, and then the mangaka just...dropped it. The characters never got fully developed, the plot never really ended, and so on. This could have been really great, but eight chapters just wasn't enough, especially with the 'ending' given.

But, if you don't mind dealing with that, I'd reccomend this highly because it is extremely funny, good for an hour or two of just laughing ;P

Can that be really concidered a complete series?

It almost seemed like it could have gone on longer, but the mangaka just didn't feel like finishing it. There was no real conflict, and definitely no real resolution. Only shallow relationships were formed, and while it had great potential as a series, it lacked for content.

This is definately a great manga with interesting plot and character development. This shoujo lacks originality and it is somewhat similar to other mangas like Hana-Kimi and The Wallflower. Nevertheless, this is one of the better shoujo mangas available.
