As an impromptu dad to Rin, his late grandfather’s illegitimate child, Daikichi Kawachi has experienced his share of firsts while caring for his little aunt (?). Now it’s Daikichi’s turn to battle the initial wave of separation anxiety as Rin leaves the nest… for her first day of elementary school! Rin’s elementary school isn’t the only place with new faces, either. Daikichi’s office is also inundated with first-timers, some of whom have their eyes on their gangly new coworker! And while father and daughter are experiencing (coping with?) all these firsts left and right, the first anniversary of Gramps’s death also sneaks up on the pair… as does the first anniversary of their paths crossing…

4 out of 5 stars

This has been my favorite volume so far because Rin has grown up a little bit and is talking more. This is a really cute series, and I’m glad that I’ve kept going. There is more plot now, and we’re finding out more about Rin’s biological mother. Daikichi is struggling with work and trying to find a balance in his life with everything that’s going on, but Rin is trying to help with anything she can.

This is seriously so cute. I know that a lot of manga is kind of violent, but this is just adorable. There isn’t much to the plot, but I want to keep reading. I think I might try to watch the anime because I’m enjoying the manga so much. I really enjoy the art style; it’s easy to follow and I like how Rin is portrayed.

Rin is a very real character. She acts just her age, and the way she repeats some sentences reminds me of the younger sister in My Neighbor Totoro. One of my all time favorite movies, by the way…. Highly recommend, super cute.

I really have been enjoying Daikichi because he’s having to deal with raising a daughter, lots of work, but he’s also trying and failing with his love life. It’s funny how bad he is at talking to women. One of my favorite scenes was at the factory he works at, a woman comes up to him and tries to talk to him, and he’s just going on and on about how he’s so bad at talking to women. It’s funny. I enjoy it.

Like I said on the review of the first in this series, if you have any manga recommendations PLEASE comment them below! I really hope to get more into manga :)

Going home for his grandfather’s funeral, thirty-year-old bachelor Daikichi is floored to discover that the old man had an illegitimate child with a younger lover! The rest of his family is equally shocked and embarrassed by this surprise development, and not one of them wants anything to do with the silent little girl, Rin. In a fit of angry spontaneity, Daikichi decides to take her in himself! But will living with this overgrown teenager of man help Rin come out of her shell? And hang on, won’t this turn of events spell doom for Daikichi’s love life?!

3 out of 5 stars

Daikichi takes in his grandfather’s illegitimate child, Rin, into his life. He brings her home and quickly realizes a child is hard to take care of. He tries to get to know her while being her parent. He figures out day-care. Figures out his job. His life revolves around her…

This was pretty okay. I don’t feel super attached to the characters, but I would like to see what happens next. This is my first ever manga! I picked it up because the cover was super cute, and I was intrigued by the synopsis. I think that I’m going to make myself finish both the books I’m currently reading before letting myself go and check out the rest of this series so then I don’t get behind…

Overall I think this is a cute series. I think there will be more information regarding the mistress lady (mom of Rin) in the next books because it left at a cliff-hangerish part at the end. I think that it was a nice way to end it because it makes me want to read the rest. I’m down for that.

Because this is the first manga I’ve ever read I don’t have anything to compare it to, but I liked the art style. It was easy to follow, and honestly the whole reading backwards wasn’t that bad. I’m excited to branch out into more manga, because I think I will really enjoy the format.

Like I said in my last review, if you have any recommendations for manga or graphic novels, let me know!!
