Series begins in WSJ 2008 #32 (release date 06 July 2009)
About the series:
A mysterious, busty, strong, beautiful, and mature high school girl... What more can a guy ask for? Apparently, Kouta, 13 years old, doesn’t. After giving a high school girl some ice cream, she returns the favor by promising to take care of Kouta while his father has gone on a business trip. However, Kouta dislikes the idea because the girl, Natsuki, treats him like a little child. Despite the one-way tension, Natsuki tells Kouta to become an adult that doesn’t run away from what he wants to do if he wants to become an adult. With her words in mind, Kouta finds the courage to rescue the idol of his school, Kanade, from three punks who try to harass her. Natsuki appears in time to beat up the three punks after a few punches have been thrown at Kouta. Kouta sees that she isn’t a bad person, and decides to accept her into his home. A new release brought to you by the author of Ichigo 100%, Hatsukoi Limited, Lilim Kiss, and Sonezaki Shinju; the funny and slightly ecchi love comedy between a high school girl and a middle school boy!

Well just finished the first chapter. As I expected, I wasn't blown away or anything, but it wasn't an awful series.
Kinda weird how things just randomly kept happening so fast....I didn't care much for that, but the characters are likable so this series might stick around for at least a little while.
I think it had a pretty good start. The set up to have the "older sister" stay fixated in his life was indeed rushed but everything else was done nicely I think.
I'm interested to see how this will develop.
I'm actually kinda glad he rushed getting the girl to live in with him. I would've hated spending 3 or so chapters on just that... it would've turned into another bleach: 1month, 1/2 a fight, BORING!!
I'll leave other judgement on this series until I see some more, but for now, it's piqued some interest.
Well, I think this kind of manga has been WAAAAYY too overdone.....
the way i see it, the older girl will be like some sort of a big sister/tutor (not a love interest) to the main character. maybe she'll help change him into an adult, and hook him up with the school idol kanade. yea, i've seen this set up before but still excited for the next chapter.
I pretty liked the first chapter, but the second chapter is pretty boring. Does anyone feels same way, or am I only one who is thinking this way?
Just read the second chapter. It was good, very good! It is a set up for the next chapter. And it raises the tension! It makes you wonder how the girl got the money~! I suppose we have to wait to find out~ However, the girl looks suspicious from the way that the author presented her in this chapter!
Thanks for the quick release....
I agree with muwlove, pretty lackluster chapter compared to the first one. If not for the eye candy it be quite an annoying read. Hopefully it picks up next chapter...
I don't know what people are complaining about - I, at least for now, love Ane-Doki.
The premise is simple and a bit random. Randomness? Yes, please!
Well, what really makes me care for this series is, of course, Natsuki. She is one gorgeous character! You won't find such an easy-going, self-centered and egoistical girl that easily She might be a real tease, yet she has a sensitive side to her. And the mysterious line is also started - and a character is comlete, no?
Kouta is a bit flat as a charcter as of now, but as Natsuki said, he is still a kid So you shouldn't expect too much from him. Though I could see some nice developments for him later on.
There is a lot of fanservice already - but knowing the mangaka, it's inevitable. But, it's really not the point to concentrate on. Just take a read, laugh and enjiy! Simple as that
I actually kinda liked both chapters 1 and 2 the same.
Chapter 1 set up the story and wasn't too bad. And chapter 2 added a fun plot twist with the money and what not and the nice fan-service moments.
But dang, that kid is stupid to keep declining taking a shower with that girl
Drmke, I'm with ya! Man am I ever with ya!! Even when I was his age I wouldn't have turned down seeing a girl with a body like that naked, especially when she's the one saying to go ahead and look.
The 2nd chptr was a tad on the boring side, too many pages with not that much happening. All that chptr showed was the blossoming feelings in Kanade, and that Natsuki is loaded. The Kanade bit he can keep going with for a while before he introduces another character of that age, or a +/- difference of 1 year. The money thing... hopefully isn't the over done "I'm a rich girl who's bored with my normal life, and I want to see what a commoner lives like" line.
Anyway, my main interest is to see if I'm wrong, and hopefully I am, and that the author can do something different.
Jokes aside, I also hope shouryuujou is wrong too. I really hope this manga does NOT become and Ichigo part II or something like that. That's the last thing anyone wants to see.
I noticed that chapter 3 is shorter than usual. Usually new series still get more than 20 pages until 3rd chapter. Does anyone know the reason for this, or doesn't really matter?
