UchiKano | Ayame

Summer may be winding down, but the news isn’t as UchiKano is coming August 26th! The remarkable duo of MOONSTONE and MangaGamer are back at it again to deliver the softest read imaginable. If you’re not familiar with MOONSTONE’s work, allow me to provide a refresher. To clarify, they are the company responsible for the remarkable Imouto Paradise series as well as Princess Evangile and Magical Marriage Lunatics. All romantic classics! This time around it will be their sub-label, Argonauts, working on a very vanilla story for us. Nothing more sweet than a childhood friend coming into your life and giving your world color. With fantastic visuals enhancing what is already going to be a sweet story, picking this one up is going to be a no-doubter. Per tradition, you can pre-order on MangaGamer right now with a 10% discount. We’re really looking forward to this one.

So what is UchiKano – Living With My Girlfriend about anyways?

Tachibanaki Keisuke, a young man in his first year as a full-fledged member of society. While the company he works for is a small one, it’s the job he always wanted to do and his life is pretty satisfactory.

But even though he’s both motivated and has much to aspire for, he’s now living alone for the first time in his life, and it’s becoming a bit exhausting. It’s then, that a certain thought crosses his mind…

“If only I had a girlfriend…”

One day, his childhood friend, Matoi Ayame, arrives at his doorstep. Ayame’s parents had to move abroad for work, and Ayame had to stay behind because she had college entrance exams coming up. Her concerned parents – who are old friends of Keisuke’s family – ask Keisuke to let her stay with him.

And with that, their life under the same roof begins. As the two of them are drawn to each other, their relationship blossoms to something that’s beyond old friends…

An exceedingly wholesome story to warm our hearts after a perhaps dreadful summer. What do you think about UchiKano? Will you pre-order it? Let us know in the comments. Personally, I’m a sucker for these kinds of story. A down to earth romance with a childhood friend? I can’t possibly ask for more.
