I'm not a fan myself.  When she said "Haruko's kid's turned me into the bad guy" I couldn't help thinking, "But you are the bad guy!"

hahaha is there anyone that reads this manga and likes her?? 

Man I said I hated the sister before, but I gotta say it again.

I gotta say, I hate the sister.

Although there seems to be some light at the end of the tunnel my opinion for this is, although it might seem like I'm making light of the situation, ouch just ouch.

 

Really hope she has a happy ending, with whomever that might be.

I hope she doesn't end with Souta, I want her to move on and have a happy ending too.

Who are these two again?

if I am not mistaken, he is the brother of the guy who runs the coffee shop that his wife passed away. 

Who are these two again?

Yep, do not like the sister at all.

Well, that's all true--but the menarche thing is a matter of diet (both stuff like eating more meat and stuff like weird hormones be in the meat) which varies a lot from place to place.  And Madison Ave is a huge part of our culture, for better or worse--well, actually, for worse--so that's really just one piece of what I was saying.

There are more different cultures in heaven and earth than are dreamt of in your philosophy.  You're speaking from a cultural moment that's having a massive fascination with and moral panic over pedophilia; hardly anyone thought of 11 year olds in relation to sex 50 years ago in North America, let alone "mysterious Nippon".

In general I agree with you but there are physiological, girls are going thru menarche at earlier ages, and psychological reasons for that change in mind-set. With Madison avenue objectifying girls at younger ages (beauty contests for 5 year olds, pre-teen sexy clothes & cosmetics, etc...) it's no wonder that people are now reacting that way. (not saying it's a good thing, just not surprising).

We had a friend who was a 5'th grade teacher in a parochial primary school who explained why she felt that she had to give informative answers to her students "facts of life" questions; In 6'th grade they're too embarrassed  to ask and by 7'th grade it's too late.

If I understood correctly, Yume had sex, no strings attached, with Souta before leaving for Brazil for a few years. In the mean time, Souta fell in love with Haru, married her and they had Yuu. And Haru died. Souta was unable to move on for a while.

 

Now, Yume is back and is playing cuckoo and pushing Mame out of the way. Taking her place in the bathhouse, somehow trying to take back Souta

Does she have something against her sister that she wants to destroy her life?

 

Edit: I just realized. Chapter titles are all movie titles aren't they?

Her dad is hot though. Cool it with the "muh weird and mysterious nippon" stuff. No matter where you live in the world, bathing with an 11 year old is questionable.

Ugh, can you not
Or will you say the same thing about Mei and Satsuki bathing with their dad in Totoro? (And you better not, 'cause that thing is like, childhood innocence and wonder cartoonified)

Might be weird for you or me but it's not a big deal for Japanese folks, apparently. No need for the hyper-creepy comments and reminders about THAT MANGA

Not that I'm against it. If I had a daughter as cute as Yuu I'd bath with her until she gets married.

Yu-chan is what, 11? And they still bathed together? If the story wasn't focused on Mame I'd wager this would turn into a truly incestuous version of Usagi Drop.
