comedy slice of life


Yotsuba's daily life is full of adventure. She is energetic, curious, and a bit odd—odd enough to be called strange by her father as well as ignorant of many things that even a five-year-old should know. Because of this, the most ordinary experience can become an adventure for her. As the days progress, she makes new friends and shows those around her that every day can be enjoyable.

Ok, so here we are with little Yotsuba.
If you're looking for an easy-going manga, this is perfect for you.
Not many dialogues, easy to read, and really funny.

And the best thing of it is that shows you that even the sounds of the cicadas is enjoyable(tsuku tsukuboushi x]).
The "motto" of this manga is "Enjoy everything", and that's exactly what Yotsuba does and shares with us.

It's like being as Yotsuba, 5 years old again.
And she's one of a kind. I would like to have a daughter like her xD.
She is always laughing, and when she gets scared she is really cute. She also learns things read more

This ongoing manga is basically a story about the life of 5 year old Yotsuba and her day to day experience. For those who have seen or read Azumanga Daioh I'd expect you'll immediately be able to make the connection between the similar story plots and artwork, and you'd be right to make this connection because its made by the same mangaka, Kiyohiko Azuma. Like Azumanga Daioh there is no real "plot progression" (it lost points for story), but thats not really a bad thing if you like this style. Unlike Azumanga Daioh, where stories are told in short panel strips, Yotsubato! is complete chapters, read more

Yotsuba&! is the story about Yotsuba Koiwai, a five-year-old girl who stays at home with her dad. She has no mom and is too young to go to school yet. Yotsuba is a cute girl with green (yes green) hair that’s done in four pigtails, giving her the appearance of a four-leaf clover (“yotsuba no kurōbā” in Japanese), and thus her name. 4channers may recognize her as the website’s unofficial mascot.

The manga is by Kiyohiko Azuma who also created Azumanga Daioh. The similarities between these two are very apparent, and the style of humor is the same, so if you liked Azumanga Daioh, then you read more

This is probably one of the funnyist manga's I have ever read. For one, Yotsuba is a good character that really makes the story come alive. Along with this, the other characters add to the story and makes Yotsuba's adventures even better to read. No matter how many times I read it, I loved it each and every time. What this manga does is unlocks the inner child within you and makes you remember all the fun and stupid things you did when you were little. The art, don't make me get started on that! It was in one word, captivating. Even without color, the read more

Yotsuba reads like a heavily remixed version of Azumanga Daioh. Both are by Kiyohiko Azuma, and both should be prescribed remedies for the blues. Nothing on earth is a more potent cheerer-upper than Azuma's works =))) 
Like Ryushika Ryushika, Yotsuba stars an eccentric little girl and the short stories in it is about her strange thoughts and adventures. 
Another light-hearted slice of life title. Stress-free yet not saccharine, it's perfect for the jaded manga reader or anybody who wishes to see the world in a new light. 
In the eyes of the innocent, the world is always full of wonders. 
Both are a slice of life involving not so normal little girls and their daily antics with their neighbors and community. 
Both have a lot of the same type of for-the-older-audience type of humor, where nostalgia of the reader is a big part in it. Ichigo Mashimaro has a bit more of a focus on this, and because of that more often has jokes that will possibly go over the head of the younger audience, but this doesn't really have a detrimental effect on the overall quality as its usually small stuff or things you wouldn't notice if you wouldn't get it.

The two series also have a large focus on typical slice of life day-to-day going ons, basically both are about cute girls  read more
