Finished the first book of the official translation. Why exactly they went with Tatsuya instead of Onii-sama every time Miyuki speaks is everyones guess but I say it's the one major flaw. Just why......... oh well, time to order the second book I guess.
The lack of Onii-sama just hurts so badly...

Sadly English doesn't have an equivalent for it. It wouldn't have hurt to put in a foreword saying that many siblings in Japan call their older siblings by their title and that Miyuki's version is extremely polite, but I'm guessing they went with english-speaking children don't want to learn about other country's cultures route.

Just finished vol 17 too. Now everybody is throwing their children into the mix!

Also the exchange of Mayumi and Mari reminded me of kindergardners.

Hah, yeah, Mayumi and Mari's exchange was a tad childish.

At this rate I feel like Mayumi and Mari are like comedic effect characters. Granted I think they are both super awesome (Chiba Erika is too cool though)

Erika is pretty cool. She and Leo get a short story in the latest book dealing with the Rozen's and Leo's grandfather.

so is the novel better than the anime? Because the anime had a lot of issues.

Vol 18 didn't feel like much of anything happened, mostly just set up for vol 19 I guess. And it ends with a cliffhanger too!

Yeah, in general the middle book tends to just be that way. Newest book is out, third year of school commences.
