From Yen Press:

Going home for his grandfather's funeral, thirty-year-old bachelor Daikichi is floored to discover that the old man had an illegitimate child with a younger lover! The rest of his family is equally shocked and embarrassed by this surprise development, and not one of them wants anything to do with the silent little girl, Rin. In a fit of angry spontaneity, Daikichi decides to take her in himself! But will living with this overgrown teenager of a man help Rin come out of her shell? And hang on, won't this turn of events spell doom for Daikichi's love life?!

Note: Was adapted into a live-action movie in 2011.

All the reviewers here are spot on. The first 4 Volumes are good but then it turns in a meandering high school soap opera and fall of a cliff in Volume 8 and undermines the formerly good part while at it.
First half 8/10. Second half 3/10. What was the author thinking ? I suggest My Girl instead.

I honestly enjoyed the time skip; though not as much as the childhood days. Overall, this manga was great up to the

incest ending.

The anime ended at the perfect place in the story, but it would be nice to see a season 2 with an alternate ending from the manga.

It's actually a good one, but if you stopped reading it at ch. 24. I couldn't help, but cracked a smile in each chapter.
But, things turned into the worst at ch. 25. Putting aside that my Rin is "ruined", they turned it into really different genre, rushed the story too much, and in the end I just felt like "Huh? Just like that? ".

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
1. The nonsense relationship between Daikichi and Kouki's mom. They both loved each other, and they both knew it. If Daikichi never tried to ask her out, then it's understandable, but Daikichi did ask her out, though he's rejected with "I'm too old" as an excuse. And yet, later she remarried with an old man that apparently asked her out several times. Though, till the end she still loved that Daikichi, even though she had married another man. I can't get impression of her as such a good person, and felt that she's just like a b*tch in ntr-Hitozuma eroge. Sorry.

2. Rin's and Kouki's relationship. You're suddenly brought into the scene when Kouki embraced Rin at ch. 25. Suddenly turning from a heartwarming series into some romantic one, isn't a good thing to do. It ruins your image of the manga, and just make you think, "ah, I know it, it must be another manga with the same setting". And yeah, they kinda rushed everything, that after the incident with Akira, Rin stopped loving him at all, after she gave Kouki a kiss with saying "that's for Kouki that I used to like". (C'mon, don't ruin the image of Rin into a b*tch, please. ) Not so long after that, she just moved into Daikichi. Yeah, and in another "suddenly" way. And, till the end there's not even a scene that shows they're kissing. So we don't know, do they even ever have a kiss? Could it she just ever did it with Kouki?. (Oh man, for the sake of justice, they should've drawn that. It's kinda unfair, and just let me think that Rin is already ruined and turned into a b*tch that suited as ntr eroge main heroine in 10 years)

Things might be pretty different if they didn't rush it...

I have quite mixed opinions about this piece.... My primary issue is that after volume 5 I felt like the story lost the pace it had built up.... My distaste for how the story progressed in the final volumes aside, I did not see the purpose behind fast forwarding the story to such an extent only to drop a couple chapters worth of flashbacks into each volume henceforth.... Also considering how the end wrapped up, I would have presumed it to have been less bland.... Regardless, it was a good read and definitely a refreshing change.... Josei this title is indeed however....

My whole comment on this series is just spoilers to explain why the ratings and reviews of people are so varied.
Firstly the summary is somewhat misleading.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
The series does start off as the summary says it does, but it changes the main cast to Rin after a 10 year gap and overall changes the whole tone of the manga in a noticeable way. It becomes more of a drama series rather than the heartwarming series it started off as.

Secondly, the regarding Kouki's mum
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
From reading a crap load of other mangas i can only see it as the authors indirect way of saying "people who are meant for each other but weren't meant to be".

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
From Rin's point of view, her feelings for Daikichi became stronger when she realised how her mother apologises for abandoning her because she had to work, yet Dai being a single man demoted himself and went through great efforts in raising her. Likewise Dai saw Rin's growth for the past 12 years. While somewhat unusual I'd say it's instinct to fall for someone and can't really be controlled. Dai even mentions he dislikes the outcome.

Overall I loved this series and the art matched the tone really well smile

The horrified comments here make me LOL so hard.

But anyway, interesting ending. (And well, these things happen.)

he agrees to an intimate (couple) relationship with her out of sense of duty. Personally, I'd hate to have someone do that for me.
Just to get my opinion out there. It's a rather cute manga overall. Read it anyway.

it just can't be helped that the mangaka ruined some of our expectations. Really. But I have foreseen it anyway, so it was no such big surprise to me. And I had to admit that I hated this kind of forced story (you know what I mean, it is about the relationship between the characters). I would have liked it more if it were executed more realistically. After all, it DID begin rather realistically, so the forced result really spoiled it. Shame

That being said, I think the mangaka did quite a good job making it a seinen slice of life story, cause I will curse any shoujo with this kind of theme. They make my skin crawls....incest and stuffs....

You would think this story would be a nice manga about how a single man struggles to raise a young daughter, almost like Yotsubto! but with more slice of life elements. It was indeed like that, before the time skip.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
After the skip it suddenly turned a questionable romance with Rin developing feelings for Daikichi. It was rather out of the blue (although some would say otherwise) and ridiculously rushed. Not only that, but the mangaka put in a rather flimsy excuse that Rin is not actually blood related to Daikichi. I can only guess the mangaka did that so it wouldn't offend too many people of 'incest'. The problem for me is not the age gap, but rather the fact that somehow Daikichi transformed from a parental figure into a romantic one in Rin's eyes.
I wouldn't be surprised if the mangaka went this route just to rile her readers up.

i chugged through the rest from where the anime stops and the ending was a twist. you subtly get hinted at what's going to happen so you have your suspicions, so it definitely doesn't come outta nowhere.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
i personally think the way the mangaka portrayed rin's feelings to develop in to love for daikichi was understandable. the way things turned out kinda just make it seem like it was something that would just happen, especially after the obviously frustrating mess between nitani liking rin but messing up, and daikichi liking his mom, since it'd be weird either way that worked out. so this happening as a result is kind of oddly normal in a super not normal way (not normal being how they have a parent child relationship). i think if you read the manga without bias or any thought of how typically this is taboo, you can kind of just let things mesh and see how strangely naturally the mangaka makes the development kinda just work.
