These are the types of vignettes people might share at a casual social gathering--just unusual enough to be somewhat interesting, but still basically everyday occurrences. Other than chapters 20 and 29, the chapters are all slice-of-life stories about Waroo. It largely has a light-hearted, comical feel--with self-depreciating humor and embarrassing moments--but there are a couple tragic stories thrown in as well. Even though the artwork is simplistic, I found it pleasant. There are no linear borders between the panels and the pictures are more just separated by space and text. Chibi characters, with background characters being clay people. Duck mouths. And a nightmarish evil grimace.

It's...okay. I could see myself appreciating the nothing-happening vibes if these were presented as between-chapter extras or something, as a palate cleanser. But as a series itself, it's pretty lacking. I think just reading it all at once made the repetition of the mundanity stand out.
