Achingly sweet and beautiful comic about a young father and his baby daughter, as she grows up. I was taken in by the story from the get-go and feverishly read 19-20 volumes at the time. Now we're upto volume 24!

The watercolour pages splashed on the front covers are stunning intervals (manga is usually black and white).

Read it.

this manga got the potential to be a very nice one.. so far its going smoothly a bit dull for a moment then gets interesting and dull again .. but I'll probably read the second volume to judge it better whether it's nice or typical.
but overall, its nice.

GRAND. I cried buckets! The series is great, I wish I would've discovered it earlier. Beautiful story of a father and his girl finding their way in life and to each other. I loved the art.
