While most people find the world mundane, five-year-old Yotsuba Koiwai sees it as a treasure trove of amazing bustle and wonderful places to explore. When she and her adoptive father, Yousuke, move to a new city, the energetic young girl naturally sets out to investigate the neighborhood on her own.

After a few incidents at the local park, the Koiwais become acquainted with their neighbors, the Ayase family. Their three daughters—mischievous college student Asagi, responsible high school student Fuuka, and kindhearted grade school student Ena—eventually all take a liking to Yotsuba and join in on her antics, despite their sheer ridicule.

From learning how to use a swing to figuring out how to stop global warming with air conditioners, Yotsuba's ability to infallibly find fun in everything, both amazes and annoys the people around her. Along with Yousuke, the Ayases, and friends she makes along the way, Yotsuba embarks on daily adventures, each one a step in her quest to enjoy the simple things in life.

In 2006, Yotsuba to! received an Excellence Award in manga category at Japan Media Arts Festival where the jury citation praised the vivid characters and gentle atmosphere the manga has. In 2008, the series was nominated for the 12th Osamu Tezuka Culture Award and the Eisner Award "Best Publication for Kids" category, but did not win either one. It was also a runner-up for the first annual Manga Taishou award. In 2016, the series, along with Hanagami Sharaku, was awarded the 20th Tezuka Osamu Cultural Prize Grand Prize.

The series was first published in English by ADV Manga as Yotsuba&!. Six volumes were released from June 6, 2005 to October 31, 2007 before publication was discontinued. Yen Press has published the series since September 15, 2009. It has also been published in Spanish by Norma Editorial since November 2005. It has been licensed in Polish by Wydawnictwo Kotori.

Kiyohiko Azuma is the creator of the wonderful manga series "Yotsuba&!" Yotsuba Koiwai, a five-year-old girl, is the main character of the novel. She is incredibly curious and enthusiastic about everything around her. The manga is renowned for its endearing and comic portrayal of Yotsuba's day-to-day experiences.

"Yotsuba&!" is fundamentally a slice-of-life manga that encapsulates the wonder and innocence of youth. The core of the story revolves around Yotsuba's interactions with the residents of her neighbourhood, especially her neighbours and the Ayase sisters. Yotsuba is a charming girl. The show celebrates simplicity and does a great job of connecting with readers of all ages by showing ...

As someone who doesn't like slice of life manga in general, this is just the perfect go-to manga you will ever read in your life.
Even though it may seem simple because it tells the daily life of a small child, it actually has a story that can attract and entertain anyone who reads it. I think it is one of the very rare manga that gives the same effect not only as casual reading but even when read continuously. The most important thing about the manga is that even though you are not used to it at first, after a while you start to become ...

A wonderful little manga about a little girl named Yotsuba & her adventures with whoever she's with and whatever she's doing (hence the name "Yotsuba&") I have been working on this series for about the past year and a half and it's been such a nice slow story to come back to. There are no annoying anime moments or sexualized characters or anything of the sort. I forget where but I read online that someone called this the "Calvin and Hobbes of Manga" or something along those lines. I wouldn't really say that's ENTIRELY true, I think Calvin and Hobbes is much funnier and more ...
