Reviews

At the funeral for Daikichi's grandfather, a surprise guest turns up: Rin, Grandpop's six-year-old lovechild by an unknown woman. The embarrassed family hems and haws until a disgusted Daikichi, who admires Grandfather's spunk, invites the silent and stoic little girl to come home with him. Alas, this thirty-something bachelor can barely relate to either women or kids, and now he's getting a sudden crash course in both. In Volume 2, he manages to track down the mystery mother, who is way more immature than he or even Rin. Gradually, Daikichi grows into a surprisingly competent parent, forming a part friendly, part yearning, part embarrassed relationship with another single parent. Perhaps love will bloom between them or perhaps Rin's mom will mature into wanting a relationship with her child and adoptive father. Targeted to twenty-something women, the series is up to seven volumes in Japan. VERDICT The story manages to be realistic, touching, and funny in all the right spots, with Daikichi an all-too-human role model for a newbie father. The art is slightly awkward in an appropriate way. Strongly recommended for teen and adult collections and for women who have never read manga.-M.C. (c) Copyright 2010.
