Cassie's Manga of the Week - Yotsuba&!

2 DEC
2010

For my first manga of the week, my pick is the delightfully charming Yotsuba&! from Kiyohiko Azuma, the creator of Azumanga Daioh.

Yotsuba&! Manga | Anime-Planet

Yotsuba&! follows a young girl named, you guessed it, Yotsuba and her everyday "adventures". It may not sound like much, but this is one of the funniest series that I've read. Yotsuba's inherent enthusiasm, optimism, and boundless energy coupled with her naivety and innocence lend to some truly amusing situations. From punching goats, to catching cicada's, Yotsuba gets wholly enthusiastic about every single situation, which accords her a lovable quality - even though you know living next to her would be hell in real life!

Sort of going into too much detail (I'll save that for a future review XD), all I can say is that I laughed so hard at this manga while at work, that had anyone been walking past the door to the office, they'd have thought I was insane. Anyone who enjoys comedy slice of life, because if you miss out on this gem of a manga then you'll end up like this:

I also agree. Great choice. I just read volume 9 the other day. The series never gets less enjoyable for me. It's one of those series that I can't see why anyone could possibly not like it. It also has provided me with most of my laughs from manga, and on a consistent basis. I also enjoy how the series ties in with itself, after Yotsuba learns something, it spreads out to multiple chapters, at times. It is quite enjoyable to see someone find such joy and wonder from everyday situations, and also the other personalities that encourage it, or try to discourage it. I also love how the manga is enjoyable for all ages, as well.

This manga is also one of my favourites. Yotsuba is almost identical to Azumanga's Chiyo-chan, but where Chiyo-chan was only slightly childish, Yotsuba is all childish. It's that childs innocence that makes it fun to watch her. Even the most obvious things become something completely different in her eyes and she makes me envious about being able to turn reality into an adventure.

Escapism at its best.
