Because of their parent's remarriage, high school student Satou Yuka, suddenly finds herself living together with her stepbrother, 23-year-old high school teacher Satou Taichi.

A lot more than it seems...

Like everyone else here, when I started reading this I thought it would be just another student/ teacher manga. To my suprise, I found it to be so much more than that. The plot is absolutely hilarious, but it also has it's dramatic moments, and they come at the right times. It seems to have a slight 'Eden no hana' feel to it, at least in terms of the sometimes tense but funny interaction with the characters.

Speaking of the characters... as I was reading this they seemed to remind me of a certain pair, then it hit me. Tamaki and Haruhi of Ouran host club! Yuka is somewhat like Haruhi, at least in the respect of her cool and somewhat sarcastic personality. On the other hand, Taichi is a lot like Tamaki, and I found his goofy and childish personality very funny. Further, the interaction between these two is absolutely hilarious, and quite reminiscent of Haruhi and Tamaki.

Overall, a very funny manga with original characters. Highly recommended!

I was hesitant to pick it up because I'm not fond of teacher/student relationships in manga but after reading the comments here, I decided to give it a try. I definitely agree with everything lialah's comment said. I loved how it started off, misleading the readers into thinking it's one of those student/teacher smut shoujo manga- but turned out to be something totally different. Like lialah mentioned, Yuka and Taichi and their interactions are totally reminiscent of Tamaki and Haruhi from Ouran High School Host Club. Despite being hilarious, there were also some moments that really touched me. A great read and I can't wait for more. (and Taichi-sensei is so cute and hot at the same time!)

I love this manga and I agree with those who posted before me. I really like the main character. She's not those ditzy types that just falls in love just like that!

It makes me laugh every time! The girl is strong, hilarious and adorable; I like how, for a change, it's not the girl chasing the guy, but the other way around.

GuyFreakz: Manga Abyss changed their name. They're known as Hokkaido Hub now and list Sugar Family among their current projects, although I don't know what the status of the next chapter is.

at first, I thought it was one of those sugary shoujo manga that can be used to pass time with. But its more than what it seems. I especially like the character developement and the not-so-fast-girl-falls-in-love-with-guy scenario. I also like how the girl is the independent strong type instead of those who drool over the main guy.

It's sweet and nice, but not overly interesting. The characters are likeable, and there's some laugh-out-loud scenes at points. It isn't fast paced, but that makes it more realistic. The main thing I would criticise is the flow of the manga. At times it felt very disjointed and jagged; episodic but without clear definition at the endings, but this is just a minor point.
It's a good read if you're looking for something airy and light but still realistic. Don't expect fast-track romance. The main character is strong but in a non-annoying way and the guy's personality is funny.
Having reached the end I can now say that this manga is a whole lot of nothing culminating in a non-too-satisfactory ending. The pacing overall was too slow, and just when things looked like they were about to pick up, it was the end of the manga.

It is too cute. I have to agree with everyone about this being reminiscent of Ouran. Wahhh. It is just soo soo cute. I love everything. Especially the chapter with the nude Taichi-sensei. So hot!

I seriously don't understand why ppl are being so nice with this.The reality is, this shiit is boring..I hate the fact that the male lead takes nothing seriously! And when he does it lasts a second and its back to baboon ! The female lead is the typical 'leave me alone because I'm emotionless' person.Basically this crap a failure at the attempt of ouran high school host club....

My advice is, don't waste your time on a story that has so little romance and a crappy day to day plot, what a waste of my battery life :/

...Actually, I think my favorite part of this manga was the cute oneshot in the middle called, "Princess princess". Zomg = love, I hope the mangaka decides to make a sequel, or even a whole manga like that! I loved it.

Not that the actual manga (Sugar Family) wasn't cute and wonderful in and of itself - funny, sweet, etc. It just seems kind of plotless at the moment - but then, we aren't very far into it, so maybe the will become more obvious soon ^_^. And I do like the characters, although Taichi's 'Onii-chan' attitude annoys me at times. I agree with the others, the couple of Yuka and Taichi is very Ouran-ish, yes? biggrin

It's quite interesting at first...

...but the ending is disappointing!

As I said, it's quite interesting at first, and I found Taichi's personality quite funny. But since the story gets too long but has few developments, his characters becomes boring and sometimes annoying to me. And for some reasons, I like his friend, Nanami better.

The more I read, the more I have a feeling that all details in the story could be seen here and there in many other manga. There's nothing specially new, and I almost cannot feel there exists a climax!

And most of all, the ending is really unacceptable! There are still many things unsolved, and even though a few were so-called solved, things are just unsatisfactory! I tried to keep myself reading to an end even though I really wanted to just drop it, and what I read was such an ending!

Maybe the author was asked to finish the story before she planned (as some publishers usually do), but at least she should show some responsibility for her work! I had to make some research to make sure that it really is the final chapter!

I don't think it deserves quite a high rating (8+) like this, and I really feel regret for wasting my time on it.
