A great shoujo
Art (10%): 8 It is just regular shoujo art although it gets a plus one for making almost every character cute and for having the cute chibi parts.
Story (40%): 9 While the story itself is not very original (taking care of younger child), it was done well. I love how the author put in romance in the story focused on taking care of the younger child. Most of the time this is done wrong and it feels forced but the romance felt natural in this story.
Character (40%): 9 None of the character were outstanding but each character played their part correctly and developed as a character. Kippei, the average playboy changed into someone more caring and less play boyish (not to spoil but he gets into a relationship). Kokoro, the ice queen changed into someone more open. What I'm trying to point out is that there are major character developments and most characters are likable.
Enjoyment (10%): 10 I enjoy reading this story a lot because it was funny and never while reading this story did I think "when is this going to be over and done with".
Total Score: 9

Kokoro, Kippei, and Yuzuya amazing. Art is amazing. The relationship between Kippei and Yuzuya is so unique honestly and Kokora and Kippei are also a mean as couple!! Story neva dragged at any point. Every chapter was unique and contributed to da overall story, sooo good. I love dis manga. I agree with other people about the ending. The ending was bad. I mean writer shud have showed an ending which tells us about the fates of all the characters. What happens to Kokoro? What happens to Miki? What happens to Reiko? None of those important questions are answered. So yea ending was bad. But still great manga!! Yuzuya is soooooo damn cute!! This is aktuli at dis moment my favourite manga evaaa. Love it wish it was longer. I wish dre was a sequel, damn. Even though ending was bad, i loved it sooo much have to give it a 10

It was great, but the ending broke my heart
It is such a good manga, the drawings are gorgeous, and kippei is too cute, his relationship with yuzuyu is so heartwarming, what I didn't like was the end...
Spoiler (highlight to view)
she doesn't get to see him again? After all he did for her? It's so sad, they loved each other so much, she was already his child in a way, they should have kept in touch or something, it's so sad for Kippei... and the only thing he says when he gets the letter is, how nostalgic, is she doing well? like gahhhhh!!! so frustrating! The story was so good it could have gone longer! what happened to the rest of them? How is Kokoro? Shou-chan and Yuzuyu are kind of an item though, that's so cute... but the ending still bothered me sooo much!
There isn't much to say about this manga, apart from the fact that if you read it and don't get touched to the core of your soul, you are hard as stone and cold as ice. The relationships in this manga are incredible and the love you feel for the characters is so warm and nice. It pulls of something that I have yet to see in a slice of life/romance manga: you never feel that it's cliche or sappy because the characters that act super sweet and nice are little kids, and kids have the ability to be the sweetest and nicest people on earth. The only thing that I can say about it that the ending should have shown what happened to the rest of the cast too, because you care for all of them in equal amounts. READ IT!
So sad yet adorable
I've watched the anime before and I stopped watching it for some reason. Then recently, I read the manga and I like fell in love with it =D. Yuzuyu is SO cute and the relationship between Kippei and Yuzuyu is just to die for. The ending almost made me cry but that's okay because the story is very touching. I totally reccomend this manga because of the plot (mainly) and how cute the art can get.

I liked the story. I enjoyed reading it. I couldn't even stop... I do think, though, that the ending was quick. It was fairly predictable in some parts. But the way, the showed it was amazing. It was great reading. So much drama, though.
Simply the most adorable thing
One thing which comes to mind when you think Aishiteruze Baby is cute. I've endlessly "awww..."-ed over Yuzuyu (she's just soooo adorable!!) and Keppei & Yuzuyu's relationship the former being simply the cutest thing I've ever seen. Kokoro's and Keppei relationship is also nice but doesn't stand out as much as KxY...the latter is probably the whole point of the manga. The length was good, nothing was repetitive 'cause, well, the manga itself was pretty short and it had all the elements of a good story - comedy, drama romance and...Yuzuyu-chaaaaann!! And it's always funny to watch Kokoro & Yuzu get jealous over Keppei. There were few things to detest about it - I felt the ending to be a bit too rushed and well..if they'd have thrown in a few more pages of older characters it'd be a great tie up for me. And Shou-chan moving away (c'mon..he was cute too! And you gotta admire the strength in the kid for not ratting out his mom. Not to mention his relationship with Yuzu was too kawaii!)...but well, he returns in the end so that's fine...there could be more of him! Overall a good read. Recommended to all.
worth the read.
It was worth the read. But of course,at some scenes I was really pissed off at how stubborn Yuzuyu is,BUT, it makes her even more kawaii ^__^. I was happy Kokoro and Kippei ended with each other.But I wish the guy who liked Kokoro [i think he was introduced around volume 4 or 5] was nice in the end, he would've been one of my favorite characters! But all in all,Aishiteruze Baby is a heart-earming story including romance,friendship and family :]
good read, was touching
Such a heartwarming story. Everything is pretty perfect here, except for the Kokoro/Keppei relationship. The fight, longing stare, make-up kiss sequence between them got old fast. I'm glad Keppei wasn't the major player the beginning made him out to be, because I would've felt so bad for Kokoro. The strength she had at the start melted into this kind of dependence on Keppei. I guess this is a good thing though because it shows some character development in both. Did Keppei suddenly become good through caring for Yuzuyu? Maybe under the tough exterior, Kokoro was always frail?
This manga is amazing, if you have any restrictions against shoujo I can tell you that this doesn't feel like it at all. Good plot and good romance, the only thing that wasn't good was the ending which felt rushed. They definitely could've lengthened the story much more, it was so good.
