Title: Love So Life
Artist: Kouichi Kaede
My Anime List | Mangafox | Goodreads
Shiharu is a high school student who loves kids, lives in an orphanage, and works at a daycare... Until the handsome uncle of two-year-old twins offers her a raise if she'll be their babysitter. Often relying on memories of her mother's actions for guidance, Shiharu quickly finds herself falling in love with her new makeshift family.Love So Life, is one of my favourite mangas, sure I've been saying that for pretty much every one I've been posting, but hey - might as well go through the favourites first!
First I'll say that I'll be reviewing a lot of manga that isn't published in English, I read a lot of scans online, and when they get licensed by an English publisher they get taken off the web (and that's when I buy them - you can find this via the mangafox link above).
Love So Life, is one of those mangas that leaves you with warm and fuzzy feeling inside after each page, its adorable, fun, cute and a very satisfying read.
The twins are so adorable, watching how they were such horrors with their uncle to turning into such angels when they get to daycare and to Shiharu - who they act like perfect angels too... is very amusing. The poor guy didn't stand a chance, so he pretty much begged Shiharu to babysit for him on days when he is busy at work and when she isn't at school.
Yes, she's in high school and the uncle Matsunaga (his last name, no idea what his first name is - probably wasn't paying attention when it was said, but they usually just call him Matsunaga-san) is a popular TV news presenter, there is a different in age... but they are so going to end up together... or I'll cry.
Don't worry about the age gap, it really is cute and its a very, very, very slow evolving romance, I'll honestly be surprised if anything happens before she leaves school.
Matsunaga has pretty much realised his feelings and is very wary of how he acts around Shiharu, because she's so young and he doesn't want to come off as creepy (haha) and well she's very oblivious to everything except taking care of children.
There's only one problem I have with this manga... I'm absolutely terrified that the parents are going to come back and take the twins away, I think it's inevitable, since well the kids belong with their parents and well they were only ever going to stay with Matsunaga for a short time, but when they go it's going to be so sad! But hey, maybe Shiharu and Matsunaga can console each other!
All up, this manga is extremely cute, its so fun watching the twins grow up and see what questions they will ask next or what crazy thing they will do and what Shiharu will say to get them in line.. and of course the fumbling romance is awesome as well! I highly recommend this to anyone who loves something light and cute and those who don't should read it anyway haha.
