From Viz:

After orphan Teru Kurebayashi loses her beloved older brother, she finds solace in the messages she exchanges with Daisy, an enigmatic figure who can only be reached through the cell phone her brother left her. Meanwhile, Teru meets and forms a strange friendship with mysterious Tasuku Kurosaki, her school's janitor. For some reason, Kurosaki always seems to be around whenever Teru needs help which leads Teru to wonder: Could Daisy be a lot closer than she thinks?

As the mystery of Daisy unfolds, Teru also discovers that there may have been a lot more to the life and death of her brother than she ever dreamed . . . and that the man she thought was her friend just might have all the answers.

I think the story kind of tried too hard... it's nice that the work didn't JUST focus on the main characters' relationship but also the community that supports them. And the whole conspiracy thing was pretty interesting too. but in the end, it made the story drag on a bit, and put Teru and Takusu's budding relationship on the back burner. It had its funny moments (so many) and it also conveyed some life lessons. I just wish there was more about the romance plot and more lighthearted stuff even with Akira too. He was so cute at the end I wish there was more about how he and Kurebayashi Team got along :/ To conclude: it was an interesting read to say the least but it's not one of those mangas I would wanna go back and reread.

Laughter, tears and heartwarming moments

Dengeki Daisy has it all. Motomi Kyousuke has always brought strong, intelligent characters to her other works (particularly her heroines), but I think Kurebayashi Teru is in her own league. Kurosaki as well, of course - a conflicted hero who takes the role of "protector" to a whole new level and easily one of my favorites to date. Their relationship is one marked by such trust, understanding and absolute devotion that it's hard to separate them even in discussion or review. It's rare to have a series these days where the romance is so well-written and functional that you know they'll continue living happily down the line, even when the series ends and the pages run out, but Dengeki Daisy manages just that. Even the extremely likeable cast of supporting characters get their turn in the spotlight (Sou!), and the rollercoaster ride of a story is satisfactorily wrapped up. This is one story where you can be certain you won't flip the last page and think, "Huh? That's it?" It may have taken awhile to build, but Dengeki Daisy is memorable and well-worth reading - I don't know why it took me so long to pick it up.

This one is impossible to finish. Starts out as an easy read that just flows quickly despite not being either very exciting or very interesting - just a slightly above average common manga. Then around the middle it changes tone and drags on, and on and on and ON. I simply lost the willpower to go on with it and despite a completionist streak I decided life's too short to spend on a manga that gives me zero pleasure.

Great Characters, Cliched Story

I've rated this manga so high because the characters in the story are amazing. They're what kept me coming back repeatedly. There are actual laugh-out-loud funny moments, and it doesn't rely too much on cliched behaviours (ie. the female lead constantly making the same mistake over and over, or issues because people won't communicate over basic things) there are some of course, but for the most part it steers clear.

That said the story is wayyyy over the top, and the romance just drags on and on and on with no real satisfying end, The two leads finally kiss and confess but there was never any doubt that would eventually happen so while it was kinda nice to see the fact it never progresses beyond that is a bit of a let-down.

I love the characters and the character interactions but in terms of plot I've seen better.

I am almost finished, but I will sadly be taking a break from it or not picking back up. I love the mangakas other work, expected the same from this, and at first it was entertaining. The story feels a bit dragged towards the middle through end. I hate to say this, but it probably should have ended earlier. sad

Almost great

Dengeki Daisy SHOULD have been great. It's hilarious, for one thing. It's adorable, for another. The protagonist is hardly ever stupid, for a third.

Now, if only the mangaka actually knew what she was talking about when writing about computers.

Trying to make sense of Dengeki Daisy's backstory was stunningly painful. The term "codes" is thrown around everywhere and I don't even know what it's supposed to mean. Sometimes it seems to be some sort of encryption algorithm, and other times it seems to be some sort of encrypted data, and all of the time it just makes no sense. There was also a description of a legendary virus that made me want to weep.

Much the same as gratuitous English, there is much gratuitous hacking in this manga that doesn't actually make sense, but looks kinda cool. I guess that was to be expected, though.

So my advice for this manga is as follows: If you have a programming background, turn off your brain and enjoy the ride. It's a little bumpy, but really a lot of fun if you just don't research it too hard.

Fun at first but repetitively boring after 5 volumes

If you're a masochist or likes playing victim mentality (where MC is always playing the pitiful role with a sad past), then you'll like this series. If not, then don't waste your time.

That said, the manga started off great but after the third volume, you can tell that the author ran out of ideas.

Here's why:

1. The romance between the two MC develops very fast (within the first two volumes). However, it never progresses past the stage of confessing to each other. The reason? MC is too afraid to confess because of his "sad past" that will hurt her.

2. The mangaka tries to convey the idea of mistakes and forgiveness but its exection is terrible. Every villain introduced is blackmailed to betray their love ones or friends and acts like "I got blackmail so I have a valid excuse to betray you." However, they are always forgiven easily. It seems no matter what the villain do, the power of love or friendship can forgive anything.

3. The male MC is introduced as the most notorious hacker. He perform amazing hacking jobs for fun. However, when he's against a villain, he can't even hack a freaking website. What is the point of making him the notorious hackerconfused

Plot devices #1 and #2 are used repeatedly. After reading volume 1, you find similarities in volume 2. Then, volume the same. Volume 4? Same. Volume 5? Wait, this is volume 5. Have they not learn they'll get betrayed? Oh wait, it's okay because they'll just forgive them at the end. What about the romance? It's the same "My sinful past will hurt you so I can't tell you I like you. Instead, I'll continue being a tsundere forever."

Terribly executed. Too repetitive. Way too illogical.

The entire time, I feel like I was reading a wannabe bible about mistakes, sins, confession and forgiveness.

A short summary of my humble opinion

The art was okay, the characters were okay, but the story felt dragged out. 75 chapters plus extra is too much and I felt that it should have ended somewhere around 50 chapters. Honestly, I practically forced myself to read this to the end because...suprise suprise...things get boring when you read about the same thing happening over and over and over again.

The manga isn't bad though, so if you're into that stuff/genre it's probably worth the read. As for me, well...definitly not my cup of tea.

I loved this manga and have been following it since it was first released as a scanlation. The love story between Teru and Kurosaki was well-paced, and thankfully it didn't follow formulaic shoujo. In itself, it's pretty unique, as much as most of the mangaka's works, involving the theme of technology and action which I think is more on the side of seinen. It's always wonderful to read a female lead that isn't overly tsundere or an overall weak-willed crybaby. For a 16 year old, Teru has matured into a strong young woman.

On another note, I don't know why a lot of people complain about the age gap. In the first place, this manga was already tagged with the 'Age Gap' category. I don't think you can call a manga an 'age gap manga' unless the MC's have at least 5 years between them, otherwise it's like reading a manga about childhood friends and such. Even 5 years isn't that much of a gap, it all depends on a person's maturity and we all know that it doesn't equal with age. If you compare this manga to reality, it would even look a lot more ideal/better.

In reality, once a kid steps into adolescence, more often than not, they've already started experimenting with sexuality - even 11 year old kids engage in relationships (I think THAT is more disturbing than this manga's age gap theme).

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
The ending was a little bit anti-climactic, what with Teru being hit more than once and then fainting, only to wake up when Kurosaki puts an onigiri in her mouth. I thought it was funny, but at the same time, "Didn't the mangaka have at least any other ideas to go about it?"

Akira was sooooo cute with his hair all cut up!!

My thoughts

I'm basing this on the latest available volume. I’m probably alone in this and maybe it’s just the Western way of thinking but once Kurosaki and Teru officially started dating, I immediately became sick. When you put it on paper, eight years isn’t that big of a difference but when all I think about is she was in kindergarten while he was middle school/junior high; I just can’t get on board with it. Also the fact that he’s called a “lolicon” throughout the majority of the story and then about a volume or a chapter before they get together, it’s just acceptable by everyone (except Rena -_-). He even called himself a “lolicon”.

I think I wouldn’t have such a bad taste in my mouth if they had held out until she was out of school or at least a legal 18. Thoughout the story, I thought that was the plan and that made the awkward flirting and pining bearable but now all I can think about is I wish I never started this manga.
