Reception edit

Danielle Van Gorder described the premise as "an even more unlikely version of the Brady Bunch", and praised Ninomiya's work on the eyes of the characters.[2] Holly Ellingwood praised the series' humour and character interactions,[3] saying it's "a gentle and lovely story about what makes a family".[4] Leroy Douresseaux describes the feel of the tale as being 'quiet, intimate', but sometimes 'a little too dry'.[5]
