Description:
Fumi Koito used to be raised by an old housekeeper named Hatoko Natsuyaki. He would call her "Peppermint Nanny" because she would eat all his leftover peppermint candy drops—which he hates to eat—then breathe into his nose because he likes the smell.

Now Fumi is in his mid-20's and living on his own as a cram school teacher. One day a little girl no more than nine years old shows up at his house. It turns out she is his old nanny who misses cooking and tending to his every need. But because she is pushing past eighty and has grown too frail, she drank a mysterious bottle of medicine to regain her youth and accidentally drank too much.

Thus begins their new life together, with the reader frequently left guessing who is taking care of whom.

One of the few manga's to evoke heart warming feels as well as some uncomfortable feelings.

this is so heart warming but some scenes makes me uncomfortable and wonder if the artist... making a specific rated indie comics or not and guess what he made it quite a lot

Would love to see at least one chapter of her attending school.

Fumi does work as a cram school teacher, which apparently teaches elementary and middle-school kids.

K so I thought she died and reincarnated as a little girl, but I guess I read too many isekais...

Nice read but I cant help to feel some bad ending in the future considering her mind is 80 years old and the supernatural tag.Feels sad man.

This is a lovely warm-hearted manga. The old lady in a little girl's body is beautifully done--she really talks and acts like an old lady, and she's very fond of the boy she cared for all those years. There's a hint of possible romance . . . hard to say if it'll go anywhere. I'm fine either way; I'm sure either choice will be well handled.
