Ever since her older brother died, TeruKurebayashi has been watched over by the mysterious Daisy, whom her brother said would look after her in his absence. Though they communicate only through e-mail on her phone, his gentle, encouraging words have been a great source of comfort to her. Her life becomes slightly more complicated when, after accidentally breaking a window at her upscale school, she is made into a slave by the school janitor Tasuku Kurosaki, a rude, sadistic, minorly pervertedlolicon who has no qualms about lounging around while she does all the work. He's totally unlike her beloved Daisy; but little does she know that the two are, in fact, the same person.A shoujo manga by Kyousuke Toriumi (an alias, the author is a female) that was published from May 2007 to October 2013, with a total of16 volumes released. The series is also licensed by Viz and 10 volumes are out in America.
The Atoner: Kurosaki, in creating Jack O' Frost and feeling guilt over his father being a spy, nearly commits suicide into thinking that would redeem his "sins." Souichirou stops him. He later feels that he cannot be forgiven for Souichirou's death, feeling responsible for it as Souichirou dedicated the remaining time of his life protecting Kurosaki until it wore him out.
Cool Big Sis: Riko towards Teru and Kurosaki. She could have become Teru's literal Cool Big Sis because she was engaged to Teru's older brother, who untimely passed away prior to the story's beginning.
I Thought Everyone Could Do That: Teru asks a (drunk) Kurosaki to solve a code that Kiyoshi gave her. After he solves it in five seconds, his response clearly indicates that he wasn't aware that this was (at least somewhat) extraordinary.
Innocent Innuendo: Teru tells Riko about her night together with Kurosaki and she hilariously misunderstands.
Ill Boy: Souichirou, who had stomach cancer for half a year prior to his death.
Indirect Kiss: The last page of chapter 3 with a soda can, but it is not like anyone made a big deal out of it.
Interrupted Suicide: Kurosaki attempted suicide in the past but was stopped in Soichirou. In Chapter 35, Rena mistakenly thinks Teru is trying to commit suicide (following Kurosaki's disappearance) after the former spots the latter on the school's rooftop and "stops" her.
Loves My Alter Ego: Inverted; To Teru, Kurosaki is both the school janitor and Daisy, the mysterious person who has looked after her ever since her brother died. Teru is in love with Kurosaki and Kurosaki is in love with her, but he doesn't want her to know that because he feels that he shouldn't love her while keeping that fact that he's Daisy a secret.
Redemption Demotion: Takeda undergoes a n oddly played-with version of this trope. While he retains his competence in serious scenes, and even gets more competent, outside of those few situations, he's pretty much become the casts' Butt Monkey.
Replacement Goldfish: Teru gets really interested in a hooded boy she meets three times because of his resemblance to her late older brother Souichirou. Turns out he's not such a good guy like she thought when he steals a kiss from her.
An interesting subversion in that Teru was given CPR by Kurosaki much earlier. Whether or not that counts as a kiss is debatable.
Shipper on Deck: Teru's brother shipped her with Kurosaki, which is saying something considering this is Souichirou. In a flashback in Chapter 38, Riko suggests for Kurosaki to ask out Souichirou's little sister, who Kurosaki has never met yet, but Kurosaki is against it, as he claims he's not a lolicon and that the girl is probably an A-cup.
íThree Amigos!: Souichirou, Kurosaki, and Riko had elements of this in the past.
Tsundere: Kurosaki, even more so than Teru herself. Also, Rena. Souichirou showed signs of it as well in the past, acting strict towards Kurosaki, only to confess his worries over him later to Riko, and that his tsun-tsun treatment of Kurosaki was a calculated move for the younger man's own good.
Would Hit a Girl: Kurosaki constantly threatens anyone who hurts Teru, girl or boy. He also makes true to his word by choking Mori and stealing her clothes after she stopped the Ferris wheel Teru and Akira.
Kiyoshi hits Teru to snap her out of her depression over Kurosaki disappearing.
