After losing her mother to a traffic accident, 5-year old tomboy Michiru finds a "suspicious person" moving into her home: her father's younger brother Kouji, whom she quickly nicknames “Beard Gorilla.” While awkward at first, it doesn’t take long for them to develop a relationship that's closer to one between a brother and sister than an uncle and niece.

A nice and funny slow paced slice of life

I really like this manga, everything is progressing little by little, like the passing time, and they add a lot of funny and touching moments.
Every characters are well depicted except...

My only grief, spoiler alert, is with Hiwa-san. I feel like she is in this manga only to be the perfect girlfriend prospect for the widowed father. Seriously every time she appear I feel like the author is screaming in my ears "See they'll fall in love, she is perfect for him". It's so unnatural. It's like the author couldn't find a way to make a widower fall in love again.

I find this manga interesting. Mainly because i love slice of life with family feels, but this manga do much more than that.
This manga has, of course, comedies which i find not that funny except very few of them. Still, it's not bad comedies. This manga also has, of course, family feels between the main protagonists AND we can suspect this family feels will develop to (at least) one new character. This manga has this warm and serious side that pop out rather unexpectedly yet quite frequently. And then, this manga also has quite an amount of romance.
Well, i personally like this manga smile Michiru is cute, her dad is being a young father and her uncle is seems more like a brother than an uncle.

As the name implies, this isn't just about the daughter, but also about the lives (and loves) of the two brothers. So far it has taken a pretty sequential focus (younger brother first, and the older next) and it remains to be seen whether the ongoing relationships will furnish as much material as the developing ones (since gags for developing relationships are usually easier fruit to reach), but I'm hopeful.

Maybe it's because the natural comparison is to the timeless classic Yotsubato! but I find this series to be only "so-so" as of the latest scanlated chapter. The kid is a bit too mean-spirited and precocious for my tastes, the dad is plain and has nothing particularly interesting about him, the jokes aren't that funny and the slice-of-life aspect is too disjointed to have much strength. I do like the uncle a bit, but he can't carry the entire story on his own.

Still, imo it's not a complete waste of time, because the premise is pretty unusual. I don't think I've ever seen another series with a non-incestuous uncle-niece bond as its central relationship. So I'll keep reading for now, and update this comment provided my views change (for better or for worse) in the future.

Edit: Dropped it, but for no particular reason. It continued in the same fashion as always, but I think there are much more interesting slice-of-life manga out there that I could be spending my time on. Still, if you like tomboyish and precocious little girls then I think you'll enjoy this.
