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.

this manga is so good. once you start reading, you'll be asking for more. i've heard of motomi kyousuke's other works, but never got attracted to the art. this series totally changes my opinion of his works. all the characters are lovable and you'll be surprised by how strong and smart teru is.

Dengeki Daisy SHOULD have been great. It's hilarious, for one thing. It's adorable, for another. The protagonist is hardly ever stupid, for a third.

Now, if only the mangaka actually knew what she was talking about when writing about computers.

Trying to make sense of Dengeki Daisy's backstory was stunningly painful. The term "codes" is thrown around everywhere and I don't even know what it's supposed to mean. Sometimes it seems to be some sort of encryption algorithm, and other times it seems to be some sort of encrypted data, and all of the time it just makes no sense. There was also a description of a legendary virus that made me want to weep.

Much the same as gratuitous English, there is much gratuitous hacking in this manga that doesn't actually make sense, but looks kinda cool. I guess that was to be expected, though.

So my advice for this manga is as follows: If you have a programming background, turn off your brain and enjoy the ride. It's a little bumpy, but really a lot of fun if you just don't research it too hard.

I read into the 40's kind of, then I put this series on hold. I have 5 english volumes; the beginning of the series was cute but also dramatic and romantic. Once the series got around volume 10, and there was still no kissing or anything, I didn't have a big problem, but I felt like the series was being unnecessarily dragged on. Don't get me wrong, I like it and I see the appeal, and maybe I need to go back and read it over again now that it's gone on, but it was like I personally wanted more in terms of story and romance and it wouldn't get there for me. But, maybe it's already there. I might find out eventually when I decide to pick it up again

too many things to say.. Teru is the best heroine i've ever encountered. If you read the translations, you can tell that her character develops immensely.. As for kurosaki, he's damn funny and loyal to her brother, which is why he tries to help teru and stops himself from getting too close to her.. Im on ch 42 and so far, I have never regretted reading this one bit. I have to say it can possibly be the best shoujo manga out there, considering the fact that the author is a guy. He is also the author of Beast Master. This has already been licensed which proves how great the manga is.

EDIT: Got boring. Dropped. Waiting for a release every month just to see more computer wizard stuff... yeah, I'm not that tolerant. I wanted more romance from this (there certainly is, but I want it every chapter BAHAHAH) but that's just me. smile

The story is unique and interesting. Even though the mangaka is a guy, he knows how to write a good romance story. It didn't bore me to death *whisper* And I get bored easily! I recommend to who ever like actions, comedy, school life, and romance all in one.

all i gotta say is WOW, i cant belive it the guy actually has a personality, most anime guys of his gener follow sterio type, they do preverted things to the herion untill she falls in love with him, or they are emo losers , he seems to care about the herion lots, plus hes actually a complex guy, she is a really grate charcter herself she dosent cry over nothing, and shes the most loyal friend ive ever seen, she is so funny somtimes, and the plots good to and its always interesting, its a funny touching mysterious read i really would recomend it to everyone, no one could hate this manga,

Wow. This is.. amazing. To be honest, when I started reading this manga was expecting it to just be a bunch of fluff, but it's so much more than that. There's actually depth to all the characters; first and foremost, the heroine is an intelligent, mature lead. She isn't just labeled as "smart" but then dumbed down to twist the plot, either. She's very intelligent, and she stays that way regardless of the plot, which is something I've very, very rarely seen in a manga. Furthermore, Teru is emotionally intelligent as well, which is definitely something I've never seen in a manga. She understands when it seems like someone may have a crush on her, and she's equally aware of her own feelings. She's also strong and quirky, and just a wonderful main character.

Kurosaki, on the other hand, is equally, utterly charming. I love him. He's got that necessary bit of mystery to him, and while he's strong he's also vulnerable -- in other words, a normal human being. He's also a worrywart, and that never fails to make me giggle. I really like his bravado in front of Teru, too; it's really adorable.

The side characters are also fantastic; Riku and Kiyoshi make me laugh all the time. Now, starting in Chapter 17, we're also learning more about Souichiro, and he's just as fascinating as the rest of them. Basically, like any shoujo, Dengeki Daisy is a strongly character-driven manga -- but it doesn't disappoint.

The plot is fantastic too. It can make your eyes water, your stomach ache from laughing so hard, and really make you curious as to what motivates each character, what mystery is surrounding them all.

I highly recommend this manga. It acknowledges the stereotypes of shoujo and basically blows them to smithereens. It's wonderfully executed. A one hundred out of ten.

update: meh. started strong, but the second half of the manga felt weak. the mystery turned out to be pointless and drawn out and confusing. i mean, maybe i if i reread it start to finish, things will flow better... but still, i was really bored reading a lot of the later chapters. so disappointing from something i had loved so much.

The plot is very unique and original, and the story was neither dragging nor fast-paced. I never got bored of it, and actually, the more I read it, the more I got hooked. The pace of the plot gave enough time for the characters to develop, but it didn't drag long enough to lose my interest.
And of course, the characters are just incredible. Kurosaki is an awesome male lead. He's handsome and smart, and I like the fact that he bullies Teru around, but behind the scenes he's doing everything he can to protect her.
I really like the heroine, too. Teru isn't overly violent or air-headed and naive. Rather, she's smart, witty, funny, and I like the fact that she's quite girly, not tomboyish. She has her reckless moments too (which usually puts her in trouble) but she values her friends, knows how to stand up for herself, and besides, no one's perfect. I also love the fact that she cries and shows her emotions like a normal person, and yet still look strong.
And the side characters are really interesting. Riko-sensei, the chairman, (former bully) Rena, and even Teru's bestfriends. They're all epic.
Kurosaki and Teru's relationship is lovely and well-developed. I reeaaaallly adore their love story smile They have quite a large age gap but they go so well together that I don't even care xD

It has darker elements which may put off some shoujo fans (like my friends) but really, it's such an original, heartwarming, heartbreaking, funny, amazing, series. smile

I read this because of the overwhelming amount of positive reviews it had. I admit itís a cute and really sweet story, a definite recommendation for shoujo fans, but the pacing is kind of slow. It does pick up a bit midway, but itís still less plot-oriented than what I expected. Iíve read most of it now (Iíve tried reading multiple times) but I donít find myself eagerly flipping the pages. Itís got this mellow, genuine feel to it, but Iím not really dying to see the next chapters either because itís very slice-of-lifey. The art is pretty good though. The heroine is strong but not kickass per se, just more of a normal girl who is pretty grounded but holds onto the idea of Daisy very unwaveringly. Sheís not annoying at all and quite funny, so if thatís what youíre looking for in a heroine, this is a good bet. The guy is not the typical jerkface who is cold and then is actually sweet and whatnot. Heís rather different, and itís nice that their relationship is very real and portrayed with depth. I would generally recommend this manga, but I canít say itís my type either because though thereís character development, thereís not enough of a plot to keep things moving.
