Wolf Children: Ame & Yuki

When Hana falls in love with a young interloper she encounters in her college class, the last thing she expects to learn is that he is part wolf. Instead of rejecting her lover upon learning his secret, she accepts him with open arms. Soon, the couple is expecting their first child, and a cozy picture of family life unfolds. But after what seems like a mere moment of bliss to Hana, the father of her children is tragically taken from her. Life as a single mother is hard in any situation, but when your children walk a fine line between man and beast, the rules of parenting all but go out the window. With no one to turn to, how will Hana survive?

All reviews on Goodreads 🐺⛅🏙️𝔚𝔬𝔩𝔣 ℭ𝔥𝔦𝔩𝔡𝔯𝔢𝔫: Ame & Yuki 🏙️⛅🐺4.5 Stars Hana falls in love with a mysterious man as a beautiful bond forms between them, and from here begins a story of heartbreak, life, and moving on. Hana moves to a remote place in nature in hopes of allowing her children to live freely the way they want to. Ame & Yuki are inseparable, two halves of a whole, but as they grow older, they start to grow farther apart. Yuki is desperate for social interaction and attends school, finding joy in human companions as she learns to hide her inner wolf deep within. However, Ame spends his days roaming the woods in love with nature and learning from nature's master. As the two children grow, Wolf Children depicts the life of a mother and the twelve years she spends raising them.Wolf Children: Ame and Yuki was both moving and significant. Fans of the short film  Bao and ghibli movie Totoro. The storytelling was wonderful and absolutely lovely. Yu's beautiful art complements the sparkling and lighthearted visuals and imagery. Despite an upbeat vibe, it can get serious and tragic at times. This story chronicles Hana's life as a single mother raising wolf children.     The story shows these two children as they grow up. Yuki and Ame were the first to test the limits of this world, not knowing the rules or what was normal. As they grow older, they realise that their wolf-human identities will not be accepted in this world. This eventually leads to a change in both children's lives. The loss of Hana's husband was felt deeply and integrated with the right amount of flashbacks. This story is an emotional tour de force with much deeper meanings beneath the surface.    This book shows the beauty of love and relationships, with complex characters. Hana smiles through pain and is incredibly hopeful and hard-working. She works hard for the ones she loves. Because this book is more of an omnibus, I'll discuss each volume individually. Volume one sets up the story with tender moments while showing the children at the beginning of their lives.        Volume two shows the story of Hana allowing her children to start controlling their own lives. They are forced to choose one of their identities. Yuki starts integrating into human society and finds friendship and love from her peers. Ame loves nature, discovering a master among the creatures and a calling to be in the wild.       Volume three is about the children becoming more independent and growing more distant. Hana is heartbroken to see the world change her children, but she learns many valuable lessons throughout her journey with them. Closing this giant tome of a book, I was blown away by the story. The Wolf Children managed to pierce through my emotions in the best way possible, stirring up a feeling of utter devastation and awe.      While writing this review, I still feel all the emotions I felt when I finished this manga yesterday. One of the most moving and important masterpieces I have ever read!☑️PLOT☑️PLOT TWISTS☑️CHARACTERS
