Smart, successful and good-looking Iwaya Sumire works for a big newspaper. However, her boss asks her to leave for being too "perfect" a woman. Feeling angry and dejected Iwaya returns home depressed, and most of all lonely. However, when she finds an unconscious young man lying in a box out the front of her home, she takes him in since he looks like a dog she used to own called Momo. She dubs him Momo and decides to "keep him as a pet." It's the start of an unexpected life together as they overcome obstacles and become quite attached to one another. But can love like this exist?

This manga won the 27th Kodansha Manga Award for shoujo in 2003 (shared with Hachimitsu to Clover).

It felt way too drawn out for me. Not much happens that's worth 14 volumes. Better than the length of Hana Yori Dango, but that's not saying much.

I really want to like it, and it's nice, but... too long for the content it contains.

At first I thought this was going to be like one of those typical manga with typical characters but boy was I wrong! This manga is like really fabulous >.<
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
It has the perfect end where it didn't really leave in a cliffhanger because before the actual chapter, we get a glimpse of the near future and all
I swear I love this like crazy, it satisfied my day.

The characters are very distinct and the two protagonist had an unbreakable bond where one was able to fully trust each other. No massive jealousy misunderstanding that one can find in a typical manga.

This is definitely a worth it manga to those who love a strong heroine but falls weak before the people she trust and to those who believe that even the third character deserved happiness.

Was Never Going to Read this

Well, I thought this was done by the same person who did Happy Mania ( Moyoko Anno) because the art looking quite similar on the covers, and I really disliked that story. (Intensely) to the point in which, I had been avoiding Tramps Like Us (Kimi Wa Pet) manga for 6 years years, thinking it was done by the same person. And I never bothered to clarify.

But, lets just say, getting volumes 1 and 2 for $0.25 cents (in United States Currency) at a used book sale, I finally started to reluctantly read this series out of boredom. (There is not much manga I have not read already released in America, so I go over to ones I've skipped all these years) But, to say the least, I really I loved it when I actually did give it a try!
I am so glad I finally started reading this series.
And I hope to get further volumes soon!

I have been a little hesitant to read this one because there is just so much hype about it, but i almost wanted to smack myself for waiting this long!
This is very much Josei and slice of life, so beware before starting it, if you're not in the right mood. The romance is secondary and develops slowly. I tend to like that sort of thing, so it was not a problem for me at all. I liked that the characters were flawed, but not stupid. With so many volumes, i would have hated it if the story started to drag, or took forever to realize things.

This manga is simply brilliant. I'm usually not a big fan of shoujo/josei, but i really have to make this one an exception. Even with all the dramas and stuff going on, there was not a single second that i feel frustrated reading this manga, which is quite rare for a 14 volumes manga. After finishing the first volume, I thought 14 volumes worth of this stuff is way too long. However, i was mistaken. the manga was very well, no, perfectly paced. Sure it feels almost like a slice of life in the first few volumes, but the development between the characters was amazing. The characters have some depth to them, but not too much. The plot could be predictable sometimes, but I have nothing against that so it wasn't really a minus for me. It was simple, interesting, and not frustrating. The idea wasn't very new or unique, but the execution is masterclass. The art felt weird at first, but as i kept reading, i felt that the main characters become better and better looking every chapter. By the time i finished this manga, I thought the art was just gorgeous. The ending was nice; it perfectly fits the manga and was ultimately satisfying.

In conclusion, this manga is... well flawless would be a way to describe it, since no matter how hard i try, i couldn't find a flaw to it. It's a very light read. If you're into a romance story then, this is a must.

I started reading it in 2008, only some of the first chapters and stopped reading it. Then, three years later, I picked it up again and I have to say, I'm so glad I did!
I think this manga is funny and enjoyable, but as it progresses, we come to a more complex, a little unrealistic plot and two many secondary characters appear, making me kind of wanting to skip some parts.
We come to understand two main characters whose past life choices made them become who they are, Sumire, being unable to be herself and thus others have a different perception of her, as the cool and smart career woman. On the other hand, Takeshi (momo), due to some of the past dealings, have made him kind of promiscuos. These two characters blended well because they needed each other and by living together they unconditionally accepted themselves, though as master and pet.
I just think it took a bit too long for Sumire to realize and not treat him only as a pet, and then when she finally realizes her feelings the story kind of rushed. It focused too much on Hasumi and her..
It lacked a bit of consistency, it felt like the mangaka had so many ideas and wanted to put them all, and only after some chapters she remembered to develop those ideas
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
like when Hasumi gave her the ring and later called to her to try it on at his home, I had already forgotten about that lol

Nonetheless, it had some pretty cute scenes and made me smile and laugh a few times. I totally loved the fact that
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Sumire and her best friend ended up getting pregnant at the same time

About the art, I liked how it is different from the other mangas, it has its own style and I adore the drawings, like the different angles used, nice body proportions and faces filled with emotions.
Overall, I recommend it, if you don't like cliches, this is a good manga!

I loved this manga. I couldn't stop thinking about it. I stayed up till 3am just to finish it.

The art was gorgeous and I loved the characters even Fukushima (though i didn't like her when she was first introduced) but I couldn't bring myself to hate her. I actually didn't hate any of the characters, they felt like real people. I LOVE Momo!

I loved the theme of Sumire chan being strong on the outside but weak on the inside and it wasnt over done. The ending is a bit over kill though but it ends happily and i guess the ending was right for the manga. Overall I'm so glad i picked it up.

I remember starting this a long time ago and then stopping, because I didn't like how weak Sumire was getting. I realize that Sumire being strong on the outside and weak on the inside is sort of a central theme to the manga, but sometimes I think to myself, there is a limit... The breaking point for me was
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Sumire getting jealous of a six year old, because she couldn't have Momo all to herself.
I decided to pick it up again and just sort of power through it. The whole manga is incredibly adorable and sweet, and I read it with a new appreciation. Although, I do think it could've been cut down by a few volumes. It starts to drag in the middle, with Sumire constantly trying to love Hasumi and then realizing little by little that she feels more comfortable with Momo--seriously, how hard could it be to realize that Momo's the one you want to be with? I also didn't like Fukushima's storyline... I just don't find her to be a likeable character at all. The ending was pretty good, although I feel like they wrapped some stuff up rather quickly. Overall, I'd say give it a try. It takes itself seriously and is definitely one of the better shoujo mangas out there.

...Try it. If you're on this page then you most definitely like romance and THIS is one of the best, so no matter what, don't let the title or the cover disturb you like it did for me at first and just read chapter 1. Before you know it you'll have already read at least 10 chapters, and be sorry that there are only 82 chapters. The characters are well depicted and mature, the story is good and "nearly" believable (only for the pet thing, just accept it and then there's no more problems), and I really liked the art.
