Shishunki-miman Okotowari

Author: Watase Yuu
Total number of volumes: 7 (the first 3 are "S-mO", the next three are "Zoku S-mO", and the last one is the last episode of Zoku combined with 2 other yomikiri)
Genera: Teen comedy/romance
Anime Status: None that I know of, but 4 novels and a theme song were released.
Art Style: It's Watase Yuu, but pre-FY. Even in early FY, she wasn't as good as she is now. She was still into drawing her people a bit chubby and Ranma-ish in looks (check out Magical Nan or Gomen Asobase if you want to see her earliest works which REALLY DO remind me of Ranma...)

Synopsis:

Asuka, who lived in Hokkaido with her mother, moves to Tokyo to look for her father she has never even met before. When she gets to his house, he is not there, only his children who claim they have never met their father either. Asuka decides to stay with her "brother" and "sister" while she looks for their father. Her two "siblings" are living alone and things sorta complicate when Asuka and her "brother" start to fall for each other (they're not sure whether they're related or not). It's rather hentai at times, but funny. Parts of it often remind me more of shounen manga instead of shoujo manga ^_^

Kamiya Yoko:

My second-favorite character ^-^ (and Kazusa’s my favorite…that’s strange; my two favorites are GIRLS for once O_o). She was the captain of the gymnastics team in Jr. High, and is a prissy snob with an insane laugh >: )= I love her servants, too ^_-



Yashiro-sensei:

A new teacher who is very big on discipline. He’s pretty funny, but there’s more to him than meets the eye…
