Format: Paperback
If you like the occasional enjoyment of manga with a relaxed pace, well developed characters, a bit of romance, a bit of drama, and a lot of cuteness and love, this is definitely worth a read.

Kippei starts out as a typical high school player, with lots of different girls trailing after him as he does what he likes, sleeping instead of going to his classes, breaking hearts, and generally avoiding anything that requires any effort. Yuzuyu, Kippei's cousin, is taken in by his family when her mother abandons her, and it falls to Kippei to look after her.

This is one of those series that is actually a lot better than it first appears, each character growing more interesting and likeable as the story progresses. Yuzuyu is a great character, in particular, being very much a child without being overly cute, and it's really heartwarming to see the way she bonds with Kippei, who you can't help adoring as he gradually changes to do his best for Yuzuyu.

There are also interesting supporting characters, like Kokoro, Kippei's classmate, who starts out seeming very two-dimensional and mean, and is gradually developed and becomes a great part of the story, along with Shouta, one of Yuzuyu's friends.

Overall, it's a very sweet, heartwarming drama, without ever getting too cute to enjoy. I highly recommend it.

uber cute manga 8 April 2006
By Kimberly - Published on
Format: Paperback
Aishiteruze Baby which basically means "I Love You Baby" in Japanese it an incredibly cute manga series. 17-year old playboy Kippei Katakura is put in charge of taking care of his 5 year old cousin Yuzuyu after her mother has disappeared. Now Kippei must learn the difficulties of raising a child instead of tending to his girlfriends. This volume depicts the changes in Kippei's life as well as Yuzuyu's. Yoki Maki is a genius for depciting the reasoning of a 5 year old. Yuzuyu thinks her mother left b/c she must hate her for not finsihing all of her bento (lunch). Yuzuyu thinks that by drawing pictures for Kippei, he will always praise her and never leave her. She tries to take crayons from a store after something happens to her old ones. She thinks that those crayons are what will help her so nobody else would hate her. Yoko Maki defiantly knows the mind of a 5 year old child.

Though this series may be mostly about Kippei taking care of Yuzuyu, it is a story of love. A story about the fatherly love Kippei shows to Yuzuyu although he's just her cousin. And a story about the love a family can have. Plus there's also a high school romance (can't have a shoujo manga without

The story may seem childish but it is rated T for Teen. I've read the whole manga through scanlations and there are some mature parts in later volumes. However I think a 13 year old would be able to handle these just fine. The story though is incredibly touching. Some parts will make you laugh, some cry. This series, scheduled to be released every other month is well worth it. So go ahead, give volume 1 a try and enter the world of Kippei and Yuzuyu.
Aishiteruze Baby 8 Jun. 2013
By Lauren Johnson - Published on
Format: Paperback
This manga was cute overall but not really memorable in my opinion. My favorite character was Yuzuyu just because she was so cute and friendly to everyone. Even though I understand the attitude of Kippei and what he is supposed to be portraying I never like him, not even when he was with Yuzuyu. Overall it was a pleasant and nice reading experience. I would check out the anime though because I felt it to be a great deal more entertaining than reading the manga.

A unique shoujo series 10 Jan. 2011
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A while back I ordered Aishiteruze Baby. When the first volume arrived I read it, but volume 2 hadn't come in yet. When all the rest of the volumes finally found their way to my home I had somewhat lost interest in the series. My initial reaction to the series was that Bunny Drop was a superior story when it came to watching over an abandoned child family member. BUT Aishiteruze Baby explores lots of serious issues without getting buried by the sadness of the stories. And for this I think it deserves a lot of credit. Overall it's a worthwhile series and I admire that it's a romance shoujo that's so much more than just seeing a high school boy and girl overcoming hurdles and getting together. It's also particularly refreshing to see a shoujo story through the eyes of the male hero rather than the female. Definitely a series that is a nice change of pace for the shoujo lover. I recommend it for those that like shoujo and series that deal with serious life issues.

Wonderful Manga 7 Feb. 2012
By Christina (A Reader of Fictions) - Published on
Format: Paperback
Aishiteruze Baby is a pretty great shoujo series. For one thing, I really appreciate the fact that the main character is a male, because this is rare to see in shoujo series. He's not a perfect guy, but he definitely seems like a real person. Watching him evolve into a mature adult from the flirty guy with no thought of the future is quite touching.

Generally, I do not much care for stories about children, but even I must admit that Yuzu is often quite charming. What person has a heart hard enough to not feel bad for a five year old abandoned by her mother? And, of course, caring for Yuzu makes Kippei sensitive enough to be able to support a slightly bruised girl like Kokoro.

While mostly light-hearted, the story also takes on darker issues like child abuse and bullying. This is an utterly touching story about the importance of family and growing up.
