No My Girl as in the one where a working single man meets his 'aunt' who's only five...and she was the illegitimate daughter of his grandfather......And now they're living together and trying to cope with all the new things in life. It's your typical seinen slice of life story.

Beautiful artwork, beautiful stories told. As quoted from grace-the yumeka sumomo fanlisting site:

One day, as I perused the archives of a scanslation site, one of Yumeka's works happened to fall into my possession. And I promptly fell in love. Not only is the work beautiful, but it's emotionally charged. I contend that she doesn't write boys, or girls, she writes people. And they fall in love, or they interact, or they share some meaningful view on relationships and life. Her stories are always breathtakingly done, from the very first frame to the last.
I couldn't have said it any better myself.
