And hang on, won’t this turn of events spell doom for Daikichi’s love life?! [from: Yun Press]


I\'ve always been a fan of stories focusing on the \"family\" concept, with all its derivatives (parenthood, brotherhood, sisterhood, childhood, etc). But it\'s been real a while since I\'ve been fascinated by such a great story. I only watched the anime as I write this post and will start the manga from where the anime left off. However, I\'m so looking forward to this.

P.S: F U ALL!!! While trying to properly write the info of this manga, wikipedia.org spoiled the ending for me from reading the freaking plot entry...

Never use wikipedia synopsis\'. About one in five spoils it for you, quite annoying.

But yeah, have to finish it someday. I stalled reading it when the group scanlating went to IRC only

I took my time these past weeks and finished yesterday. Though I read starting from where the anime finished, the \"certain\" point everyone been nagging about.

Spoiler (click to show/hide)


tl;dr a solid 10/10 for a realistic and heartwarming story.[/color]
