Description - (Per NU)
Broken-hearted and drunk, Yoshida, a 26-years old salaryman, stumbled upon a runaway-from-home high-schooler on his way back from the bar.
“Hey, you. JK.”*
“What the heck are you doing out here. Go home already.
“Uncle, let me stay at your place for the night.”
“You can do ‘that’ to me if you let me stay.”
“If you meant that as a joke, it’s not funny.”
“I’m not joking. It’s fine by me.”
“Then allow me to tell you that I have no interest in brats.”
“Then, just let me stay.”
Why? - Despite the title, despite the description provided by Novel Updates, this is actually a rather wholesome title. The connotations would indicate this would be an ecchi style novel however the romance is rather more subtle and pure.
The novel begins with the main character having being rejected, drunk and on the journey home discovers a young schoolgirl sitting underneath a streetlight. From this almost "fated" meeting, there is a series of personal developments, which expands on the characters and could be described as self improvement.
The illustrations (though not the end all, be all) are rather cute in their own way. The series is being fan translated at the moment, not even half way through the first volume, and the manga is available as well, which again has not even covered the first volume completely.
I would love to see this series translated officially as I believe in the potential. Did not see a page up from the search function. Hoping I have covered all the necessary parts.
There's allready a post for that one
