From Mixini Studios:

Back in the day, that place was a house filled with magic - a place where you ended up smiling even if you were crying. Surely, an invisible wizard must have lived there. Or so I thought.

What's a young child to do when her mother leaves her father for another man? Or when her father remarries a woman who brings along a child from a previous marriage? Or when her childhood neighbor friend invites her to live with him?

Man, i love this manga! Hiro and Mao are just the best hero and heroine. I like Daiki as well, but yea the main reason why i love this manga is because of Hiro and Mao. Only critism is that, like another user said, the string of unrequited loves is a bit excessive..Pretty much the entire cast has unrequited love lol.

I was looking for a cute and light manga; this manga is quite deeper than I imagine. I felt so bad for the girl that I wanted to hug her. But, after 40-something chapters, I had to stop. It was just depressing for me. I think this was a dragged on a bit.

Some people say you can't marry a rollercoaster.

Some people say you can't actually make love to an octopus.

Well I'm here to tell you at the age of twenty that I, for realzies, have fallen madly in love with this shoujo series.

I was tired of rifling through shoujo after shoujo... After almost ten years of reading the stuff and harnessing some sort of addiction for the high, for the heart-wrenching glee, the giddiness, THE FEELZ, after so many years, nothing seemed to do it for me anymore. I knew all too well what i wanted to be reading in my manga and nothing from the shoujo genre delivered anymore and it was finally feeling like i should move on. Shoujo became like a Twilight to me instead of a Walk to Remember, like all i did was laugh at it nowadays, not with it, you know?

But this.

This fucking series.

Has me squealing like a baby piglet about to explode, every chapter (I'm on 24). Even after experiencing High school for what it is (HELL), even with all these feminist values actively shadowing every work of literature i touch, this series is so charming and funny and cute and ASDFGJK. People complaining about cliche's are in the wrong genre. People who are looking for unrealistic borderline fantasy romances should look elsewhere, because the development will seem boring and slow to some. Go to Desire Complex or something if steamy heart throbbing romance is your only interest. This is a story with depth and like MatrixM said, a story that deals with family issues (angst). An actual story that no one good enough should miss out on.

I like that the characters in Taiyou no Ie---no, these PEOPLE---know each other so well, they can tell if someone is being a crybaby on the other line even though she just texted something like "You're so stupid, Stupid." But at the same time THEY ARE SO DENSE toward each other (it's fucking delicious).

I like how they point out the little things to each other like if someone sounded a little catty by saying that one comment someone would call them out on it and they actually aren't offended. Like actual clear-minded friends who know how to talk to each other.
Or how some characters aren't doofuses when in front of the one they truly like, while some do get a little stiff in a completely adorable but believable way. "Yeah I'm jealous and worried that you're even remotely rumored to be dating this other guy even though you're not but I was saying earlier how I needed that school tour." Etc.

I look for shoujo series that make sense to me. I look for characters who are self-aware, but something with cuteness in the feel of the story... A series that can make a jaded person like me actually giggle or smile in a big way.

If you're anything like me (in age, in understanding of others, in that specific kind of maturity or spot in your life where you're not looking to escape RL, just to live it better), this series will be all of the things. A new chapter of taiyou no ie is a ray of sunshine to my otherwise crappy and depressing life. There are small cliff hangers after every chapter i suppose, but they don't get me so bad because I know the next time i read a new chapter, it will be a good day, and I like spreading out the good days.

Anyway, if I sound like an annoying person to you, don't read this series (they probably cant read this since they probably stopped reading earlier on). For everyone else, especially the people who didnt roll their eyes while reading through my entire review, you really need to read this series and have your day made. Constantly. Those other people can't in their personality appreciate this series like you can, and it sucks to be them.

(This review was made at volume 5, chapter 20 in the story)

This series is like one giant torus knot of unrequited loves. Nobody mutually shares any amount of love for each other and no feelings ever seem to grow from it besides a general blanket of hopelessness settling over the entire cast. I'm sure in another 5+ volumes the focal romance of the entire story might actually progress to a point in which you could CALL it a budding romance! And maybe in another 20 they'll actually kiss!

If you like watching people beam out hungry bedroom eyes all day while nothing ever actually progresses in the plot, then this series is definitely for you. Personally, I find it annoying.

It hasn't got any of that mushy,floweriness that makes so many shoujo annoying to read at times. In fact, it seems to blur the division between the shoujo/seinen romance genres. Incredibly sweet, freaking fantastic drama when it comes to familial relations (and Mao's relationship with her new friend), great romance (for the most part) and frequent, light-hearted comedy. biggrin

Great read.

EDIT: Just thought I'd mention, this series isn't about romance. That's a heavy part of it but it's mostly about family. And belonging, I guess. Though I hate to say that thanks to seniour high school English >.>
Anyways, family.

I am happy that I chose to read this manga. Taamo has always been one of my top ten favorite Mangakas. The art is cute, the characters are interesting but the hero is blunt at first. You might get a bit annoyed how he keeps going on and on about the girl that he likes even though he might/have not noticed the heroine's feelings. But Mao is still no. 1. She may have been the annoying girl next door but she deserves to be seen as a lady, too. But anyway, this manga is very much recommended to Taamo lovers as well as shoujo readers!

I don't know. It's pretty cliche. It tried to make an epic, beautiful story but it wasn't too convincing for me. Maybe it was that ever-common love triangle the author inserted. The characters were pretty typical and not exactly 'likable' either.

The manga made a pitiful attempt to distinct it self from others, but it's still quite cliche and there's really nothing special about it. The art was simple and cute- again, nothing gorgeous.

I like this kind of shojo manga, it's so lovely. Well, I like most of Taamo's works, but Taiyou no ie is the best for me. Simple, but that simply touch my heart. I got my cheeks red, pain in heart, smile, teary, and scream *in my heart* when i read this series up to now. I love how Taamo made reader's emotion up and down.
