Contents

Plot

Teru was left little but a cell phone when her brother died, a cell phone that contained the text-address of an elusive character named DAISY who Teru's brother had told her would "Support her when he was no longer able to." DAISY became Teru's pillar of strength over the next few years as he sent her encouraging words through his phone whether inspiring or mere chatter as she faces her life alone. The story begins one afternoon as Teru is bullied by the student council. Teru accidentally breaks a school window which results in her working for the grouchy, cruel school janitor named Tasuku Kurosaki. As Teru begins working for the unlikable school janitor, her feelings begin to surpass that of master and servant and she begins to question DAISY's true identity. Could Kurosaki be her beloved DAISY?

Characters

Teru Kurebayashi

Teru is left all alone when her brother died with only the cell phone her brother gave her to keep her company. It is with this cell phone that she discovers the friend her brother left her in the one that calls himself DAISY. Teru's feelings for DAISY become that of a brothers as he is always there in the shadows, protecting and encouraging her through messages and sometimes physical acts (i.e. throwing tennis balls at bullies from afar, hacking the school computer system at her request), however their relationship has never gone beyond the bounds of Instant Messaging. At the beginning of the manga she is being bullied by the student council and after being maliciously drenched with a hose a mysterious ball flies onto the scene scaring the bullies off. As she tries to return the ball she accidentally throws it through a school window. This results in her meeting with the school Janitor, Tasuku Kurosaki, who demands payment for the window, however hearing Teru is financially incapable of paying for the window he makes her work it off, making her his "Slave" getting her to do his janitorial duties in his place. As the manga progresses, Teru's once negative feelings towards Kurosaki grow into something more romantic. However her suspicion grows that Kurosaki is in fact her beloved ally DAISY and that the phone her brother left her might be more than it appears.

Tasuku Kurosaki

Kurosaki works as the school janitor at Teru Kurebayashi's high school and one day enslaves Teru to do his janitorial duties to repay a window she broke that he must pay for. He is also a computer hacker and worked with Teru's brother, Souichirou Kurebayashi. He is often described as a pervert and a "lolicon" by his friends, though often jokingly, as it is established among his closer companions that he has strong romantic feelings for the loli-esque high schooler, Teru. Kurosaki has made it his mission to care for Teru as the elusive DAISY on request of his dying friend and the elder brother of Teru, though recently he has chosen to protect her as his true self also, hiding his other identity that is "DAISY." Kurosaki feels that he has no right to love Teru as he is "the one that lead her brother to his death" which causes much internal conflict between his own ideals and his love for Teru. Kurosaki is often depicted smoking, drinking and participating in violent acts however can be seen being very caring towards his "slave" despite his usually grouchy attitude. He is described by Teru's friends to be very attractive though he does not outwardly display his emotions, however, when he gets angry, he can be very terrifying however is sometimes depicted as a rather tsundere character when he is with Teru.

Souichirou Kurebayashi

Souichirou Kurebayashi is the deceased brother of the main character, Teru Kurebayashi. Little is known about him other than he was a very talented computer engineer and led a team of engineers that included Tasuku Kurosaki and Riko Onizuka, he supposedly made some software that would sell for a very high price before his death which mysteriously disappeared, this has brought suspicion on the phone he left his little sister, many believing the software was left to her as a sort of uninformed inheritance. He shoved the role of DAISY onto his friend Kurosaki and potentially convinced him using some form of guilt as Kurosaki has openly admitted that he was in some way responsible for Souichirou's death though the contribution is unclear. Souichirou was the one who named DAISY, the name was not named after his sister’s favourite flower, the blue daisy, as originally thought, instead a name for Kurosaki’s codename that he used to hack into illegal government services.

Riko Onizuka

Riko Onizuka was a member of the team Teru's brother led as well as his previous girlfriend; she has a good friendship with Tasuku Kurosaki however has a low opinion of him and his infatuation with his dead friends sister Teru Kurebayashi. She is the current housemate of Teru as well as Kurosaki's neighbour, little else is known about her. She is also the current school councillor at Teru's high school.
