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.

Dengeki Daisy is a manga I would definitely not hesitate to recommend to anyone who is looking for a solid, interesting, unique, and well-executed plot.
This is the first time I have come across such a perfect balace of drama, tension, romance, and comedy. Nothing gets too draggy, neither is the manga ever too extreme - and what I find is that the pacing and interweaving of the narration, character development and dialogue in-between deserves a firm 10/10. Never have I been so touched to the core that it actually "grips" me, and it's fascinating to see the tone alternate between Daisy and Kurosaki, creating somewhat of a harmonic dynamic despite their differences in reality.
The choice of words especially, is what I would say is the high point. Daisy is hot too, which is always a major plus. Furthermore, this strays from the usual cliques in shoujo manga, so...
...Absolutely brilliant - and this comes from someone who (no offence intended!) is not into lolicon or anything to do with IT/computers - somehow I've managed to shock myself by getting addicted to Dengeki Daisy. READ IT.

Amazing. Absolutely amazing. Actually, amazing isn't even the word - more like fantastic.

The characters are realistic and distinctly original and non-cliche. Teru isn't the type of heroine who is kind to everyone and cries in every chapter, who has no flaws but clumsiness and trusting everyone/the wrong people. She doesn't make every mistake humanly possible, and she isn't stupid, or even extremely smart. She's just - normal. She makes mistakes, she insults people, she lies on occasion, and is, while far from perfect, in general a good person.

Also, in many other manga, the male lead is usually the most popular boy in school who seems to have no flaws (and really shouldn't notice the heroine at all, but does for some strange reason). That is most definitely not Kurosaki. He's violent, he's got a short temper, he's perverted, he smokes, he's lazy - again, inwardly a very good person, but he's HUMAN, which is so refreshing.

...And the rest of the characters are great as well - and all the dialog and character interactions are great. And you can really see how all of the cast - especially our two main characters - grow and develop as you go along. It's fantastic.

AND THE PLOT. It actually has a plot. An excellent plot, which builds and grows and when you re-read the manga, you'll go, "...Wow! I can totally see why this happened now!" But even when you first read a chapter which later leads into something bigger, you're not lost, or confused. You're right there with the characters, and likely you won't even realize what just happened was important until later in the story when it all clicks together. And nothing happens as you think it will - there are so many unexpected twists in this manga that eventually you give up trying to predict what will happen next and just go along for the ride.

Also, even between all the drama, there's something to make you laugh. The humor isn't usually (/is almost never) in an inappropriate place, though you may not see it coming, and there's something worth giggling/quoting to your friends in every chapter.

SUMMARY (for those of you who didn't want to read all that):
Characters: 9/10 (well-developed, original)
Plot: 9/10 (interesting, twisty)
Art: 8/10 (very simple, but nice)

Edit: Well...frankly, I'm not nearly as into this manga as I was at its beginning.

I feel like romance and humor has sort of taken a backseat to lots of back-stories and a confusing and detail-oriented plot. The humor hasn't really changed or matured much over the volumes, and I can only read "I hope you go bald, Kurosaki!" so many times before it stops being funny. To put it simply, with all the action and mystery and drama and psychological-ness, this doesn't feel like a shoujo anymore, but rather a mislabeled shounen manga. And shounens are nice enough, some of them, but that's really not what I was expecting when I started reading this - I like the fluffiness and romance that the shoujo genre is known for.

So the rating has gone down for me - currently, it's at 6/10. But, I haven't yet grown irritated enough to drop this, so maybe it will get better as time goes on.

I really liked this series because it was different from typical romance manga. Either the characters were too boring, the plot ran away, the romance was slow, the guy confessed in the first chapter, etcetera, etcetera.
The only REAL problem I had with this was that when I was on Chapter 30-something I started wishing to reread the manga again... Thanks to that, I couldn't finish the manga in a day... And right now, I'm seriously stuck on this manga, so much that I've reread it 5 times in a couple days and I'm not looking for anything else to read... Please suggest something for me to read! Before I die!
When this manga ends, I will probably be in A LOT of pain unless there is a continuation. I cry every time I think about it ending...

OK, so it's been around a year since I started reading "Dengeki daisy" and now I've read up to vol 8, so I think it's time I wrote a proper review about the series.

First thing, I have to admit I was attracted to the "romance" and typical shoujo stuff at the beginning of the story (well I'm a girl after all and it's not like I can forever abandon shoujo even if I've matured out of the "shoujo period" a girl has to go through at some time in her otaku life).
AND Kyousuke-sensei also stated that this series was supposed to be a 3-chapter publication at 1st, so it certainly couldn't really have a serious plot or characters development. That's why you might feel like it's a bit cliché if you've only read a few beginning chapters. This is probably the reason a lot of people found the manga "cliché and boring" and decided to quit it (they're really retared impatient IDIOTS).

However, as you can see, right now there've been 9 vols published and the manga's one of the highest-rating series in all manga sites and all manga genres. To put it that far, it's undeniable that the author had definitely managed to create sth special, or at least sth that would interest readers, or else it would be another shoujo-failure right away.

I'm not saying ALL of you out there agree with this, but come on, let's face it, this series is mind-blowing and I have to say the story's actually quite deep while not being too dark or angsty. Right now I'm at vol 8 where the characters' pasts have been unveiled and I realize all the details that have been mentioned in earlier volumes actually have meanings behind them and they connect logically to the story later on. Nothing's unnecessary and everything's all well-put.

The art isn't bad, and in fact it's quite nice, although not too superb or eye-catching, but somehow I feel it gives the story a depth that way, as the characters are real people and nothing's too fake or affected like many other shoujo mangas.

All in all, in my opinion, this is sth different (well not at 1st but you gotta be patient, come on) and I thoroughly enjoy reading till now. You should DEFINITELY give it a try it and decide if you like it or not later.

This is my absolute favorite series for the following reasons:
1. Mystery - A lot of mangas try to put a sense of mystery about the main guy because -let's face it- who doesn't love a mysterious guy? But most of the time it ends up being stupid or poorly done and thrown in at the last second. In Dengeki Daisy a huge focus is placed on Daisy's mysterious past with what appears to be (so far) a complex plot line.
2. Humor - I laugh, a lot.
3. A strong protagonist - Teru, despite going through such a huge tragedy, is able to get over it unlike many shoujo protagonists who just cry a lot and assume that since they broke a nail the world is going to end.
4. New spin on a classic shoujo guy - Daisy is ridiculously shoujo. Mysterious, strong, protective guy with a forbidden love? Come on. But a new spin (and some geek factor which I love) is thrust in by making him actually capable with computers.
5. Sweet romance - While I like crazy dramatic smutty soap-opera type manga as much as the next person, it's refreshing to occasionally sit down to a sweet romance. Though most of the "pure romances" tend to piss me off by having a naive girl worshiping the main guy who secretly loves her too. Um, no thanks. Dengeki Daisy is a sweet love that won't bore you to death and I reccomend it to anyone that likes Shoujo.

It has all the elements I love in a comic series: Believable romance, hilarious comedy, tight plot, intelligent main characters, and hot guys.

I've always loved Motomi's works and this series is kinda different from the others of the same author - characters and plot but as sweet at always! Really looking forward to the next release! smile

And ah - i really love Kurosaki's character! XD

This is the funniest and best manga that I ever read. I love this mangaka. Beast master and now Dengeki Daisy. The mangaka sure knows how to write and draw great storylines and characters.

Teru, the heroine is the best one I ever seen. She cried, joked, and stayed strong at times she should. That's why no one could ever hate her.

Kurosaki is a cool, caring and funny. That makes him a great guy with multiples personality.

To sum it up, this manga is totally awesome. A MUST READ! Best, get yours hands on the manga if you can find it in any manga shop (like me.)!

Storyline - 10/10
Artwork - 10/10
Recommendation - 100000000/10 ><

Okay. I read this coming from Otokomae Beads Club and Penguin Prince. I was expecting that light-hearted romcom with funny expressions that I love so much. That's how I knew Motomi's works. But agh. This... spiraled down hella fast. Became heavy. A bit melodramatic. I was surprised but didn't hate it. And I like the side characters and their stories, too. But... the change in mood was really jarring and it put me off a bit. And it's stretching. Perhaps if this was a shounen or seinen manga I would look at it from a better point of view. I went from wanting to know what will happen next to going 'meh, what comes, comes'.
