I love slice-of-life manga. The first one I’ve read is Yotsuba, and I completely fell in love with it.
Yotsuba is a manga about the titular character’s daily life and the lives of those who are near her. There’s her dad, the huge man Jumbo, the neighbors with three pretty daughters, the junior of her dad whom she despises, and even a robot made of cartons.
The stories are simple and episodic, and the title of each chapter usually tells you what to expect of that chapter. All of them are will leave a smile upon your face, and there are lots of laugh out loud moments. Yotsuba is sweet, quirky, cute and innocent(not to mention weird at times), and shows in each chapter of the manga. Reading this manga is like wondering where did one’s innocence goes, and when we had it, did we have it like Yotsuba’s.
Yotsuba is a great read for everyone, regardless of age, or even if you read manga or not. Give it a try, I’m sure you’ll really like it.
