Love So Life, Vol. 1 - Kaede Kouchi Shiharu is an orphan who babysits for baby-twins Aoi and Akane -who, by the way, are really cute-. She maybe be 16-years-old but she is very mature. Her memories with her mom are emotional; it is not merely a shoujo about a lonely girl in the world who is nice (which it is) but at the same time, it is not cliche. She is likeable and not silly; maybe naive sometimes but there is no doubt she is very good with children.

Matsunaga is the love interest: much older than Shiharu(9 years-older) but he is funny and a good guy. And although he is the 'hot guy', he is not serious like it is usual.
