I thought reading a manga with full of elementary kids is bratty but when I read the first chapter and more afterwards, I have to admit, this is a very good manga! The supernatural father-daughter pair is really cute and each of the story is very well written and kinda sad too. I think I'm not very satisfied with Hayami's ending. Despite appearing in every scene, his side of story is very short and I feel like the part about his mother is left hanging. Would be nice if they can show us a full scene of Hotate and her father with the rest of the people and Hayami together at the end. Perhaps the mangaka doesn't want to draw the obvious. But anyway, I still like this manga and definitely recommend it!

But I thought the teacher would end up with Zenjiruo

Actually I felt the chapters seems tedious at times in the middle part of the story, I only cared for Hayami and Hotate's relationship along the way, I was happy about the twists, but when it was 3 chapters left I was rooting for more development after that! Zenjirou is an awesome and charming dad, Hotate is a vibrant and optimistic kid and Hayami has a dynamic personality biggrin an omake should have been nice, it was short but the ending made me rate this nearly 10 because I still want to see more scenes like what happens after they woke up and cute scenarios between the teacher and Zenjirou <3

I was hesitant to read this because of reviews saying it is very childish and mostly fluff. Thankfully, I still decided to give it a try because it turned out to be a beautiful story! The characters and their growth are what truly make this a special manga. I also really like how it handled dark, serious issues but with a very optimistic 10-year old mentality (keeping it real to the character's age). This may be where the fluff shines through some, but it still had a strong message about how to push through even difficult issues. As for the romance, I was very impressed with how it came across as sweet and innocent for the MC. It was very suitable for her age. It was also entertaining to see the side characters' romances.

I would truly recommend this manga to anyone looking for something with substance and excellent characterization. Just know going into it that this is a shougo manga that could actually be aimed at 10 year olds so maintains a positive attitude even during the dark moments. It's not pointless fluff, but a happy, feel-good story,

And beware the crazy as fudge scary mom

of poor Hayami! &#128561; Talk about messed up. That's the only major part I feel was left mostly unresolved at the end. It's all good to tell a 14 year old to live how he chooses but in reality, how would he have gone about escaping that terrorizing excuse of a parent?

this is a very innocent, lighthearted and warm manga suitable for kids. there really no bad person here, and the kids act like little angels unlike real ones. if you like that sort of thing, this will be good for you. i personally do not like the over innocent and naive world view this have and the over youthful art with the humongous eyes, still its pleasant for a quick read.

In the middle of the manga, I felt that this is actually too long, so many characters coming in, but at the end after thinking abt it, I felt that it was the right amount of chapters for the story to flow and the main characters to grow. And I thought she was gonna like that Yuuki boy when he was first introduced in te manga, but well it turned out to be not so, and I still love it. I give a 9 cause I felt it really should have lengthen a bit more after the ending. Really wanted to see how Hotato will look when she's grown up.

I don't want to spoil anything, but this story left me with tears (in a good way). The whole story was really sweet, and I wish it was longer just so I get see more of Zenjirou, Hayami, and Hotate. They are really interesting characters... I kind of wanted to know more about Hayami's past as well.

Anyways, this was a masterpiece, and left me wanting more.

This story felt rushed at times but I loved it anyways. It got teary at certain and thought it was such a sweet story. I freaken love her dad. He's just hot!!! So charming lol. I thought that Hayama's character was also nice. Hotate was such a loving character too. The only I wanted to see more of is the romance that will happen after they both wake up. I wanna see her standing next to him and how much shorter she is. Lol. I also wanted to see teacher and the dads love. Anyway great story.

i realy want it to be longer, i mean i know that the story's focus is about hotate and her dad but this series could have been more beautiful but i guess leaving this story as it is was a good idea because it cause the readers craving for more.. and wat i mean for "for more" is about hotate and hayame kyaaaa ://D (even though im not the kind of person who would go ga* and kyaa* but this series is too cute) the author realy pulled this through nicely cause even though i usualy dont like these genres i end up loving it and imagining what would have happen if the author went through with it til both hayami and hotate grew up xD

This was rather good for a fluffy story. Some of the things that happened (reactions as well) were a little unrealistic, but I liked it anyways. The ending was good XD. Fourteen year old Hayami is a freaking cutie, Hotate with her hair down is adorable. BUT, I think my favorite character was Zenjirou. He was the most interesting because I always saw this sadness in him. Anyways, read it. Maki sensei is a great Mangaka
