Going into this post, I want to quick mention three types of stories that I really like:
- A story that involves someone being thrust into taking care of a child (e.g. Usagi Drop).
- A story that revolves around two brothers.
- A story that makes me dawww and hnnnggg or so to speak.
Here is a quick plot summary for Gakuen Babysitters:
After his parents died, Ryuuichi ends up in charge of his adorable, younger brother, Kotarou. The two of them are taken in by a school chairman who assigns Ryuuichi as a volunteer for the school babysitter club that is populated with the young children of the school staff.
A quick read of the plot description above shows that this manga clearly satisfies each one of the aforementioned bullet points. That is to say that unless the manga really botches up on presentation, it is pretty much guaranteed to be good in my eyes. Gakuen Babysitters most certainly does a splendid job of meeting all of the above criteria, but I wrote this post because it does so much more.
This is one of the best manga I have ever read….and I have read a lot of good manga.
