The story:
Concentrates solely on the difficulty of keeping a mixed, parentless family together without any outside plots. So far.

The family set-up:
In this first volume, it seems to be almost entirely based around the Fruits Basket & Ouran High School Host Club characters.

The breakdown:
The oldest brother is a crossbreed of Shigure & Ayame, the second oldest is Hatori, the third is Kyo, and then the fourth is more like the character Mori from Ouran Host club.

Sakura, the young girl who is
one brother is very feminine, is mistaken for a woman.

Ends with a short bonus comic in which a girl and a boy switch bodies. The girl wants to be a boy so she can pursue the relationship more aggressively.

The most interesting thing about this volume was the Fruits Basket excerpt in the back. Way to damn this series in comparison, Tokyopop!

I loved this book. I don't usually read manga but I came across this in the book store and read the first few pages. I was great.

Cute story. I've been following this from the beginning. Kinda makes me wish I'd had older brothers rather than a younger sister!

Sakura has been living with her grandmother ever since her parents died in an accident. Her grandmother passed away recently. One day, she comes home from school and finds four men who claim to be her half brothers. They also give her a letter from her grandmother asking them to take care of Sakura. Sakura gradually learns to live with this four brothers and will have many family experiences together.

I have an older brother myself (and I happen to be just a little older and just as short as sakura), and if you ask me this book holds true to reality. My older brother is all of Sakura's brothers combined into one where the only connection is in protecting and loving the little sister. This manga is hillarious, some times a little out there, and can hold true to reality.

I really tried to like this, but I felt like the characters were all too stereotyped and I just couldn't get into it. It wasn't that funny to me and I'm sick of the poor manga girl who worries she's a burden to everyone else. give me a break. maybe if I had continued to plunge forward it would have grown on me, but I kept hopign that it would and it didn't

Cute manga. It feeds into my childhood fantasy of wishing I had a bunch of older brothers who would love and protect me (in the nicest ways). In this first volume of the series, young Sakura (14) loses her grandmother and thinks that she is now alone in the world. But within days, she suddenly finds 4 older brothers in her house. Sakura doesn't remember them well since she was about 3 when they were all separated from each other, but as soon as her brothers realize her situation, they rush to be ...more

This was not expecting this to be soo cute! I had never really wanted brothers, but I would have loved to have as nice of brothers as these. What else can I say other than it's cutie cute cute? Well, it's nice to see that family is what you make of it.

4.5 stars, but it's so cute that I don't mind rounding up.

I was reading this, and for the longest time I was thinking "Why do I keep feeling deja vu?" Then, when I finished it, I realized why: Almost everything in this book has been done before. Here's a list of everything I can think of:

1. The name of the main character. Sakura. This name is used waaaaaaay too much. Why? Why? Yeah sure, it's pretty and it means 'cherry blossom' and all, but don't you think the mangaka could have thought of something just a little more creative?

2. Her parents are dead.

I didn't like it. It starts of interesting but the brothers act too weird. They all defend and baby Sakura. It gets very annoying after awhile.

A pretty decent book. I have to agree with some of the review I've read in that this book borrows heavily from other shoujo manga. Definitely has an Ouran High School Host Club feel. Very sweet though, I enjoyed it. It comes across a little incestous though. She's not technically related to her brothers, so that opens the story up for a romance down the line. Kind of creepy now that I think about it.

I was looking forward to the manga, the blurb sounded quite awesome.

Sadly, it was not meant to be. The whole book is one big cliché. Suddenly she gets 4 brothers, who all look like they stepped out of some other manga. We got Takeshi, who clearly looks like Mori (though now with added beard) from Ouran High School Host Club (same way they act, practically the same look), Masashi, a bit of a combination of Tamaki and some other characters. Takashi, clearly Kyoya, only a bit more kinder, and then

Fun, cute, and enjoyable. Me & My Brothers is a manga that possesses the perfect balance of lighthearted goofiness and heartfelt moments. I'm looking forward to reading volume 2.

Was hoping for a little more comedy but I figured it will get a little better and hopefully a little deeper in later volumes.

Please note that this review is for the entire series, not just the first volume:

Me & My Brothers is one of the first manga I ever read, and it has remained one of my absolute favorites ever since. The story itself is cute but relatively uneventful–a slice-of-life family story that gradually morphs into something of a romantic comedy while still retaining the slice-of-life, family-story feel. Actually, nothing much ever really happens in the plot; it’s totally the characters that carry the s

Me & My Brothers adalah salah satu serial yang paling gw tunggu di setiap terbitan HanaLala, dengan versi Indonesia berjudul With My Brothers. Ceritanya simpel, lucu dan lumayan kental aroma kekeluargaan. Artworknya nggak begitu bagus... sedikit kasar dan berantakan malah. Tapi gw sih nggak begitu peduli.

Sakura Miyashita baru saja kehilangan nenek yang merawatnya sejak kecil. Untungnya Sakura tidak akan hidup sendirian, karena empat orang pria yang mengaku sebagai kakak Sakura datang menyela
