Yotsubato is the funniest, most heartwarming manga ever. It's about a tiny little girl full of energy and mischief, eager to discover life. The drawings are simple but bursting with talent. The stories are very recognizable for anybody who remembers their own childhood, or is a parent. While reading, you smile, you laugh out loud, you'll even get a tear sometimes, while looking in those bright enthousiast eyes. You can't stop yourself from thinking Japan must be the most wonderful place in the world for a child to grow up... Whatever it is, Yotsuba (it means "four leaf clover), you'll never forget her, once you've met her! You'll remember her big smile, her tiny little shoes, her funny frown, her ever-tired, patient daddy, her equally patient neighbours and her stern but loving grandmother. Buy this! Buy it, I say!!
I have bought this book only because I had read that is was easy to read for Japanese learners... I did not really expect to enjoy it, as I thought it was meant for little children. But to my great surprise, this is actually hilarious! I have read one chapter every night, but had I had no self discipline, I would probably have read it all in one sitting. As to its being easy to read, it really is. There are some more complicated terms, but they usually put so much emphasis on it (because Yotsuba doesn't know those terms either), that you end up learning new vocabulary painlessy. I'm definitely going to buy the whole series. ^_^
Got my book and I'm totally satisfied with my purchase. Well packaged and definitely gonna purchase the rest parts :)
