From Dazzling Scans:

Yamanouchi Kouya, the daughter of a famous author, is a shy young girl just starting middle school. She is named class representative along with Kannatsuki Yuuya, a boy she met on her way to school who frightens her a little bit. They are trying to work together, but he always seems mad at her and she is painfully shy. The thing is, Yuuya knows something that Kouya doesn't know yet—that her famous father is going to marry his mother!

The art for the first 9 chapters stood out. 10-12 did not.

After the time skip the story rushed to finish up all the plotlines without really resolving them. The most interesting thing about this manga was how the step mom was trying to be a mom to the MC AND the discussion of how the dad wasn't really human anymore but the author dropped the ball on that chapter 10 onward. Much like Area D, read for the first half (chapter 1-9) and that's it.

I think the person who wrote this manga was in his/her own world with little regard of what and who have been around. Or maybe it's just a very peculiar case that normal folks like me have no experience or knowledge of.

But I don't feel relatable to this manga, the characters, and everything.

Shoujo that a guy can enjoy.

And the reason why was best said, below, by sundaetea.

All I can add is the fact that what was especially interesting to me it how much it was like other shoujo I've encountered, and yet not like them. The girl finds the boy mysterious and fascinating, as girls often do in shoujo manga, but this time it seems real. I think that may be because the writer took the time to fill in the whole picture of his and her life and the lives of people around them. The result was that the story became more than just a standard, or schematic, depiction of a girl's love. It was like being inside the head of someone you know well—like a friend, sister, or relative, as she goes through this great unknown venture.

Sweet, gentle, and supenseful all at once.

Wasn't Feelin' It...

This manga is barely romance. You know those one-shots about romance that seem like it's going to be really nice and full-filling but isn't? That's how I would describe this one. I guess what it comes down to is I could not understand nor identify with the main characters. Maybe it's cause I'm male but I will never understand how women go for guys that trample on their feelings.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
The dad in the story is pretty much a man-whore and seems to sleep with any women he is in contact with. The messed up part is he marries and still fools around and his new wife doesn't seem to mind either. The manga explains this behavior as material for writing his novels. If that wasn't bad enough the main character kinda plays everything off and does nothing about it. I just didn't understand the main characters feelings in this one. The end also seemed like it might have been rushed seeing how both Kouya and Yuuya kinda just are together yet going down different paths?

Mature Coming of Age Manga

There's something really beautiful about the story being told. I feel like the characters in the manga are actual people, and not one dimensional characters. Their feelings are natural given their circumstances, and the story leaves you feeling a little bit sad despite the unheavy atmosphere of the manga.

In short this is a mature coming of age manga that's sweet and realistic. Plus the art is just about as beautiful as it can get.

This manga has a beautiful sort of wistful feel to it. Very realistic and not overly dramatic. I love the main characters. Kouya is intelligent, level headed and independent and she seems real. The manga flows nicely and its not stuck on just romance but follows other important relationships too. I would strongly recommend this to anyone. Can't wait for the 3rd volume translation!

For anyone like me who first read the discription and think: same old, same old - boy and girl's parents remarry, unexpectedly become stepsiblings, live under the same roof... And you know what happens next.
But this manga is different. Their thoughts and feelings are realistic and natural given their circumstances. It's a good coming of age manga
