Description
Fumi Koito used to be raised by an old housekeeper named Hatoko Natsuyaki. He would call her "Peppermint Nanny" because she would eat his leftover peppermint candy drops, because he hates how they taste, then breathe into his nose because he likes the smell.

Now Fumi is in his mid-20's and living on his own as a cram school teacher. One day a little girl no more than nine years old shows up at his house. It turns out she is his old nanny who misses cooking and tending to his every need. But because she is pushing eighty and has grown too frail, she drank a mysterious bottle of medicine to regain her youth, and accidentally drank too much.

Thus begins their new life together, with the reader frequently left guessing who is taking care of whom.

Kind of weird but sweet

This manga is quite tender and light hearted. The MC doesn't really stand out much but he isnt a bad MC. The nanny is interesting in the sense that seeing a little girl talk and act like an old lady and I'm not talking about how a kid tries to act like like an adult. It feels kind of strange seeing it. The relationship is a little odd, it's very sweet but I dont know if it is just me but I get the vibe that they have or are developing somewhat romantic interest in one another. I wouldn't be surprised since this manga is categorized in the romance genre but if still seem odd. He is a mid 20 yr old man she is an 80 yr old women trapped in the body of a 7-8 year old little girl. It strange on many levels. However as strange as it is I don't feel that it would be a bad thing however if it does lead to romance I'd prefer if she grew older like by a lot body-wise.

I do enjoy the story as strange as it is I find it pretty interesting and sweet.
