This is probably one of the best manga with little kids inside that I've ever read. I find the plot really warm and throughout the manga, you can see the kids growing up and learning things along the way. The twins are really cute and the main characters are sweet and funny. If I have to point out, the main plot is supposed to be centered on the twins and Shiharu's progress along the way, instead of Shiharu and Matsunaga. Their romance is just like a bonus kinda thing. I do hope there's a spin off with them getting married and all tho. Well if only. But nevertheless, I really enjoyed reading this!

I think the length of the manga was just right, gave us a chance to visit everyone connected to Aoi and Akane, I think it was a beautiful development between all the characters!

I remember reading up to chapter 28 many, many years ago and I stopped because it wasn't fully scanlated, its definitely been well worth the wait, I almost forgot I read it till I revisted an old note taking of mangas that I have read whether completed or still in the process of reading.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
I can only imagine Aoi's expression that Shitaru has been taken hehe.

I really loved this manga, Thank you Kaede Kouchi and scanlation group/s <3

Guys... why so harsh ? It makes it seems like you've only read it for the romance... I think you've missed the main point of this serie.

Let's be honest : what kind of fool only read shoujo/josei for the romance ? Are you telling me you've never read Natsume Yuujinchou or Sakamichi no Apollon ? Or if you have, you didn't enjoy them ?? Are you kidding me ??

When I read shoujo and josei, especially when it's a slice of life, I don't expect romance. I expect heartwarming stories.
I love witnessing characters' growth thanks to love and friendship but the thing I find the most interesting is how easily those kind of mangas can make you feel something. There isn't any explosions, war, overpowered enemies who need to be defeated... it's just life. Sweet life.
And it's amazing how such simple stories can get you so emotional, and make you feel so warm inside.

Does Love So Life manage to do that ? Absolutely !!
The twins are such adorable creatures, the drawings are so simple yet so beautiful, and the characters are all so sweet... I don't know how many "Awwww~" moments I had.
It's true the ending felt a bit rushed but anyway it doesn't mean the romance was bad. I really enjoyed their fluffy relationship. It wasn't boring in the least. It was so pure, so innnocent... Moreover, I really appreciated the fact that it was slow-paced. That way, the characters really grew on me.
But what I liked the most in this manga were all the characters' interactions. Everyone was so kind and endearing I couldn't dislike anyone. The story was so peaceful and cute, I feel like I've cleansed my poor fujoshi's soul...

Ahem. Anyway it really is a wonderful manga. It's a must read imo, especially if you're a fluff lover like me.
So don't pass it up ! I promise you it worths your time (the guys who wrote harsh reviews were just frustrated because they needed more wink )

I've read two volumes of this long shoujo series. It's a cute but mediocre slice of life.

I was quickly bored by the sweetness and adorableness of the twins and annoyed by the girl's Mary Sue understanding of stereotypical "happy" family life.

There's no significant romance, and from what I've read of other reviews, there never really is. It's just too juvenile and overly simplistic for me, without any outstanding art to redeem the lackluster, conflict-less story.

I would recommend this manga if you're looking for a good slice of life. The characters were lovable and no annoying characters or drama. It's mostly a manga that focuses on family and babysitting. The twins are truly adorable. I did find that the manga to be too long for what it is and a bit disappointed with the romance aspect, as it didn't have a big part in the story. In conclusion, I do considered it a cute and "feel good" manga, but readers in search of a solid romance would be disappointed.

Ok I know this is a shoujo genre and i already expected that the romance would be slow. But come on the ending was very AWFUL. If the author wants to write a manga about child rearing like 'Gakuen Babysitters' then theres no problem for me. But you gave the fans false hope and then suddenly launching a scene were the main guy proposes to the girl without proper follow-up. I started to hate the manga after that. I was delighted at first but there were no couple growth at all after that. The female MC is ambigous regarding her stand to the male MC and it keeps dragging down. If you want to read about a manga about the bliss and hardship of child rearing then go ahead but the romance in it was terrible!!!!

This could be only 3 volumes

This should've been 3 volumes: One or two volumes to explore the main character, one volume for the twins, and one volume for the male lead.
However, instead, this dragged on and on for 17 volumes and seemed like a manual on how to raise kids.

Supposedly, I would like to rate this manga 10.0 but ... I'm not quite happy with the ending. So people who are currently reading this, please don't expect much. You'll only get a heartbreak like me. I believe the author should have at least made 1-3 chapters full of fluffy romance (´ー`).

Man it wasn't worth the bother.
Too long and so little romance. Can one even call it a shoujo!?
The end was very disappointing... I expected it to be so much different.

I agree with almost everything that was already said here. My rate was a 10 till I've read the end. It's ok a slow romance development, as she was underage, but I think the reader needs to be respected a little and showed a little of romance between the two main characters. The acceptance of the twins of the new situation between them, and so on. It was an undeserved end of a great story.
