One day after school, Kippei is suddenly tasked by the family breadwinner his sister Reiko to take care of little Yuzu. He doesn't shy from his duties, and Yuzu quickly becomes attached to Kippei. Through will, trial and error, he gives up a lot to make sure Yuzu's living in a loving home. Kippei makes mistakes but not overtly huge and when he notices it he usually scrambles to cheer her up. Yuzu, while in pre-school/kindergarten, learns her own life-lessons, and you see how cruel or compassionate kids can be all over again as if you were right beside her and you find yourself rooting for cast at various moments. As the viewer, you get pulled into the drama seeing Yuzu and her aunt's family (mainly Kippei on a daily basis) take care of her.
It's heartwarming and amazingly captures the spirit of raising a child, and witnessing their growing curiousity. As my title stated, yes, it does give you the sting of single parenthood. Don't get me wrong there is a lot of humor, as Kippei tends to be the butt of the jokes, from his womanizing (more like passed around by the girls) and school skipping reputation. Or reputation that he already is a single parent. Then there's Kokoro, a girl who starts off as someone who wants nothing to do with Kippei, but as someone who lives alone and having had her mother die at around Yuzu's age, she begins to gradually respect Kippei after seeing him give his all for Yuzu.
I'm so tired of seeing pointlessly cute/cool-looking/unrequited love/harem/ultra-violent for shock factor in manga and anime that it was refreshing to finally read a down to earth manga about family, especially one as good as this. This manga is well worth it, just because of little Yuzu is a bundle of cuteness. Sorry, can't help myself, did I mention Yuzu's cute? This hit me personally as I had to babysit my cousin a couple times as her parents weren't married, and it just gave me flashbacks, though I can't completely compare as Kippei was the daily guardian. Oh, and you can use this to introduce to people like your mom, or *gasp* girl to get her to try out manga (it is a Shoujo manga afterall).
