Overview

Like a plot out of a soap opera, bachelor Daikichi Kawachi's boringly normal life got a touch of the abnormal when he learned that his late granddad left behind a love child. And further rattling the unexpected skeleton in the closet? The ungainly, unglamorous Daikichi's impulsive decision to take in little Rin! But as the impromptu dad and his charge learn to adapt to both one another and their very new living situation, Daikichi is plagued by thoughts of Rin's mother. Who is she? Why has she been quiet all this time? Hot on the trail after discovering a modem at the old man's computer-less abode, Daikichi plays detective in search for answers. But elementary school enrollment, extracurricular activities, and other parental obligations wait for no man, so when the day of confrontation with the mysterious Masato arrives, will Daikichi be prepared?!

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
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.
