The story explains the day-to-day of a college freshman Yūta, who is just starting a new life in the School of Literature Department of Tama University. While Yūta grew up with his sister, when she married a divorced man with two daughters, Yūta left her to live by himself to distance himself from that new family.

About 3 years later his sister asked him to visit and babysit her girls. His life was turned upside down when the girls' parents went missing. Yūta now has to live with his sister's three daughters: a tsundere (Sora, 14 years old), a little demon (Miu, 10 years old) and a baby girl (Hina, 3 years old), two of which are from a previous marriage and not related by blood, in a six tatami mat sized room.

Leaving something to be desired, however...

Possible blatant spoilers warning!!

The first experience I had with this story was the anime, so in adjusting to the manga was a little difficult.

I much rather read everything in chronological order but with how some of the stories are presented it feels like doing one series would have been more damagin green beneficial.

Many call thi series lacklustre, or not worth reading. However;

A college student taking in his young nieces is no small feat. Not to mention he has the strong drive to make it work he stands up to the naysayers who think it's wrong, inappropriate or ill advised. This is not a weak character by any means, but he does lack the full picture. The full picture that the children, his friends, and many others present him from seeing.

Our main character could have done better? could have more backbone? Maybe. But consider he was trying to protect them and keep them together. Contact with the older family members would be ill advised. Niavetee at its best. More hours working? Doubly so. Risk education? Check.

He is forced to make decisions without knowing the full picture. How many real life situations do we have the whole picture? None. Someone is always hiding something or another.
I usually #ShipTheHarem. This is one story I think would be best going the other way.

Unless it's YuutaxRaikaxmidorixvoiceactress. What a house hold that would be (with midori's little girl it would be four sisters...). Anyways I digress.

While Sora has a thing for her uncle, and he is blissfully unaware, I find it believable to be possible. sora obviously has her sights set high. Which for young girls should be encouraged.

I see a lot of comments complaining about what "uncle" or "father figure" would allow being hit like that for something not his fault. The fact is, our character. Yuuta, would be in a worse situation if he 1. Hit her back even a smack in the ass for st irking him. It would certainly have readers calling for blood I think.

2. While abuse or violence from a woman ion a man is no laughing matter, tell me men. You can't take the smack from a woman(or girl) when she feels embarrassed or frustrated? She wants a wall of strength soft enough not to hurt her. Not that it makes it easy to read.

In all a very pleasant read. Had me in tears any number of times.

This story took a pretty bold set-up to have a college student take care of the three young daughters of his "missing" sister.

During the early phases, the plot can pretty much write itself, since it's a pretty tough situation at the beginning and it'll take quite some time for everybody to adjust to their new lifestyle. It's tough for the girls, it's tough for the guy.

However looking long term, a lot of readers are wary, some even dreading about how the author could possibly conclude this story? To what end will this guy continue take care of the girls? Their age gap is less than 10, we're either going to head towards some sort of romantic relationship (not exactly "good") or eventually the premise is going to collapse.

For example, if the guy graduates university, finds a job, able to work and make some money. Is he going to get married to someone? Or provide the tuition costs for all three girls himself alone? Hard feat to accomplish, the girls themselves would realize this and things will get very awkward and complicated.

Or the parents can simply return and turns out are not dead. But that'd be a cop out.

So how do we end this story? Well, like the subject of this review. They cut off the story early as to not have to deal with the eventual consequences. We end on a "live happily ever after" note right when they're 90% adjusted to their new lives. Before things get monotonous. End. Welp.

I don't know how to start with this manga. The art is good enough, some character like Hina is kind of cute and Miu is an interesting character but that is all the good things about this manga.

The story is lame. It is intended to be a story about a man and his 3 adopted nieces trying to coop with a new life but it fail horriblely simply just because the author did not dig deep enough. The only problem that arise accross the manga is financial problem, pressure for relative and cooping with new lifestyle.Compare this one to another manga of the same setting like Usagi Drop this one is a lack luster. Instead focusing on how Yuuta become a capable father figure for his 3 nieces and how he manga to overcome many problem regarding of building a new family. The manga is choked full of meaningless ecchi and lame humor. Sometimes, a grave problem arise but was handled very poorly with somekind of handwave rather than a logical conclusion. I know that bring logic into a shounen manga is kind of unreasonable but this is a slice of life manga. And in slice of life manga we, the reader want to see real life problem and real life solution, not some ideal solution.
Some character like Sora is just so horrible that sometimes i can't stop to think that how come Yuuta let his niece punch him in his face without a word about it ? Surely you can't torelace that act even though the one who at fault is your. Then again that is one of this manga biggest flaw, too many meaningless ecchi that i think inteded by the author to fill in the gasp of this manga.
Another bad character is the main character himself. I dont know why people tag him as strong willed character. All the time i saw in this manga is that he is being directed by everyone around him. If not by his schoolmate then by his nieces. He act rashly without thinking and always goes with the flow.

To sum it up, if you need an ecchi and average manga to read ? Read To Love Ru instead. If you need a slice of life manga about family relationship ? Read Usagi Drop or Yotsuba To instead.
This one is a complete failure.

yep hina is cute. Suppppper cute. Like really amazingly cute. If you watch this just for hina, that's all you need. Go hina! Runa runa kushi! The story is great too. I personally like the manga better but hina's voice is just so adorable though... Theres also no "papa" role in the manga though for some reason....

So far, only day-to-day life of young family without backbone (financial strength, relatives to rely on, yet they still somehow make it). No real problem been threatening them, therefore, no story strength has been bared. Pretty enjoyable if you have nothing to read, but I guess it will turn very interesting when real problem arise, starting next chapter.
