LDK

The classic odd-couple story gets another revamp for Ayu Watanabe’s LDK – telling the story of two young teens who both live alone, coincidentally, right next door to one another. Aoi is a feisty, no-nonsense kind of girl, who is fiercely loyal to her friends. One such friend gets rejected coldly by Shusei, the detached and aloof prince of the school. It’s not long, though, before he’s knocking on her door demanding to be fed – and not long after that before a kitchen mishap means they both have to live in Aoi’s apartment.

How will the two manage to keep their new arrangement secret from everyone at school? And, will the two inevitably end up falling for each other? But what about Aoi’s friend with the crush on Shusei? Discover the answer to these dilemma and more, in this sweet and funny little shoujo romance tale from Kodansha.

It might not win awards for original story set-up, but LDK has charm and wit aplenty.
SCORE: 3.5/5
