A (bitter)sweet story about a single father and his daughter

I love it, Koharu is a sweet girl and I admire Masamune for trying his best to be a good father, even though the role was so suddenly thrust upon him. They make a nice father - daughter duo 🙂
Beware all the feels, the manga will make you cry, but it's really good.
I like the author, she draws beautifully and the stories make you cry but they're great!

A Hit Right In The Feels

Now, I have a soft spot for any manga about parents, biological or not and no matter how many parents, but this one was such a well done, realistic exploration on the emotional side of raising a kid, especially a (basically) adopted one. I would recommend this manga to anyone and everyone. There is no huge external struggle because the ones that count in this manga are internal; the manga also glosses a little bit over the financial burdens, etc. that a new kid creates, but that's not the point of this series.

One thing I disagree with some other reviewers on here is about how "mature" the artist made Koharu (the little girl). I saw a few talking about how unrealistically logical she was, and have to sincerely disagree. Koharu is the epitome of a child raised under various stressors. Though she tries to follow a "logical" line of reasoning, it's the simple and childish conclusions that she comes to that really draws out how young she is and doesn't yet understand the world. She doesn't feel exceptional, but rather as 'good' as any child who wants to be aware of their situation as a single kid, moved around, and trying to understand how she fits in the world. At least this is my opinion, because many kids are astute for different reasons and different upbringings. My inner child could really relate to Koharu as a person, not just a character.

I like how this manga is so realistic and I love Koharu a loooooot! She's super cute and she's really grow up despite being a young kid. She's really considerate and I like how much she grows in every chapter. I also understand Masamune's feelings of not being able to forget and let go of the person he really love. So attached that he couldn't move on from there but even so, he will need to eventually because life goes on. Although I'm not into the art but I really love the plot. So warm, so touching and it made me cried a little.

What a phenomenal manga. I've had a lump in my throat for the past three hours as I've been reading My Girl; The manga hits you with the feels very early on and never stops. Merciless. However, you never really feel overly disheartened, let alone depressed, while reading because the feels are very well divided between joy and sadness.

Honestly, when I started reading this manga, I didn't know what to expect. But after sitting down with it and being captivated by it so thoroughly, it's undoubtedly one of the best pieces of work I've read in my entire 14 years of reading manga.

This manga has been in my wish list for years and I'm glad I finally had the chance to read.
Koharu and Masamune's love for each other gave warmth to my heart.
Overall, the characters are heartwarming, the storytelling is endearing, and the art is beautiful.

Was I on steroids? Because I zoomed through this manga! It's possible I had on Levy's glasses and didn't know. I couldn't stop reading and before I knew it was over and I was satisfied. I didn't cry. I don't know what was going on with arouraleona, but this is good.

I think I cried in every single chapter. It was so incredibly beautiful and heart warming and heart breaking ... I have a real soft spot for dad/daughter stories ... and a real terrible fear about them post Usagi Drop (and I don't believe I'm the only one...). This, however, is worlds and away better than that horrible horrible HORRIBLE manga.

I love the art (though the ears are weird at elf ears, they're pointy sometimes; it's weird), and the mangaka puts in these little comic strips at the end of each volume that are just fabulously amusing. Helps to break the super amount of feels that burst through all the regular chapters.

The ending is good. Sweet. It's all freaking sweet. If you don't like sweet, don't read it. But holy crud, I read this whole thing in one sitting. An all-nighter since I didn't start reading until midnight. It was SO worth the lost sleep.

This was cute, and I completely agree with the comment below mine about how the children seemed too mature at times. Nonetheless, this was a wonderful manga, IF ONLY IT WAS LONGER!!! :'(

When I first decided to read this manga, I prepared myself for your average heart warmer, however this beautiful manga surpassed my expectations. It was really sweet and believable. I found myself relating to and falling in love with the characters. I found myself immersed in the story and before I knew it, I was laughing and crying with the beautiful moments in their life. I truely hope that you get a chance to read this wonderful story of hope, love and growth of a family. This is a story you are sure to regret missing. 10/10, no doubt in my mind.

Some serious flaws here, but still nicely done.

I liked the parenting part - both the father-daughter one and the one with the father's relationship with his parents. The concept that parents are still learning how to raise or support their children better even when they have already grown up is quite plausible. There were many aspects of the story that wasn't realistic, however.
For a five-year-old child, the daughter's thinking and some of her actions were way too mature for her age, no matter how many exceptional cases there may be. It's not just her, but some other children as well. The way they analyze their situation almost like an adult even though they're only five is too unrealistic. That really kills the story. And what kind of father let's his 5-year old walk around in the town all by herself at night?!! Though the author was aiming for a realistic story, it just couldn't truly come through to a solid, real life situation that may really happen. The possible future mother was done well, nonetheless. Contains some really good character development, though sometimes beyond reality.
