Synopsis

Hatsuki is a highschool student living with her sister, Hatsumi, who she has a huge crush on. On Hatsumi's 16th birthday, she is suddenly surrounded by a green light and disappears in front of Hatsuki. She manages to follow Hatsumi with the help of a being resembling a fat baby chick (literally), ending up in a place called "The Great Library", which is full of different worlds stored in books. Hatsumi wasn't there, though, so the search for Hatsuki's great love begins and involves traveling from book to book.

While there is always an entirely different type of environment, ...

Mixed Feelings
There's a lot to be said about Yamibo, and that may be a sort of understatement. From the confusing but unique narrative, to the giant disturbing-looking hat, to the lesbian incest subplot, it's a real trip if you're only seeing it for the first time.
In fact, I'm not sure how I was able to get through it. But that's for another time. Here are some of my honest thoughts on the bizzare, yet captivating world of Yamibo.
