Higuchi Asuka's mother dies shortly after she tells her teenage daughter who her father is. Only knowing the family name “Sudou”, Asuka goes in search to find her absent father.

On her journey, she finds a guy being rather rough with a younger girl. Unable to resist, Asuka steps in by battering the guy with her motorcycle. When she discovers it was a big misunderstanding (Manato was just trying to get his sister Kazusa to go home), she drives them back to their house.

Once there, Asuka finds out that Manato and Kazusa are the Sudou family she's been looking for, but the father isn't there, not to mention their mother also being dead since long ago. With no other leads, Asuka decides to move in as Neesan (the big sister) until their father shows up. Things get tricky when love builds within the complex family relationship...

Oneshot in the last volume: Otome no Jijou

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
there was something seriously wrong with Kazusa. i've heard of having abrother complex but how can you want to date someone you've been raised with. but thats not the bad thing, she meets a kind girl that says shes her sister, and she tells a group of guys to attack her for no reason. later on she knows that Asuka's in trouble and was kidnapped and she waits forever to tell her brother. i have never seen a more heartless or cruel little girl, i feel like the change in her in the end is completely fake. i understand that she only has her brother but sh goes over board.

i like it. i mean come on watase-sensei drew this back in ... 1991
when shoujo wasnt even close to cliche yet;;
(mostly because back then was the starting point)

i think its cute and pretty light hearted with a more or less good main girl.
plus i love most of watase-sensei's works <3

this is one of the mangas that i get excited when Esthétique releases a chapter. Hope the sequels will be scanlated to biggrin

I never do like cutesy girls but somehow Yuu Watase's works are pretty cool. The fact I like about this is that the protagonist is very strong! And the guy isnt cold and silent but actually engaging and friendly.
