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

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 enjoys everything"

It's probably something that you can just tell about a pure innocent child
and just how heartwarming it is to be there with Yotsuba in all of her enjoyable moments in a journey to discover new things with that beautifull perspective of a little kid without any care in the world and make you realise how fun every meaningless thing in your daily life would be!
Every chapter of Yotsubato! is a fun read and it has even high value of rereading.
The comedy is not the kind to make you burst into laughter but it will make you keep a smile on your face and 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

There are slice of life mangas that focus on building and showing the relationships between the main characters, in this case a parent - child relationship, as with titles such as Usagi Drop or Taiyou no Ie. Then there is Yotsubato!, a manga which main premise lies in narrating and displaying the daily life of the child and the different interactions with her surroundings, all represented hilariously.

The story of Yotsubato! is simple: Yousuke Koiwai, the parent, and Yotsuba, the 5-year-old child, move to a new neighbourhood, living next to them a family composed of three girls and their parents. The author proceeds to narrate different read more

"Today is always the most enjoyable day."

Comedy always was and will always be a double-edged sword. Either you burst out laughing, laying waste to the nearest furniture in the meantime, you get what you came for or you only manage to grin faintly at best... the summoned feelings can differ significantly between two otherwise similar persons. You don't need to be an expert to find out about this swing of feelings when searching for something fun to read/watch.
But one comedy genre stays out of this top-or-flop cycle, since it deals with themes we all are quite aware of or had been in the past and read more

Childhood sure has its perks. You get to create mischief without any lasting repercussions, will find amusement in the most trivial of endeavors, are gifted sweets from loved ones who seek to see your cheerful smile and a piggy back ride from those who tower over you. But most of all, every waking moment is a period of grand adventure as your mind is no different from a sponge soaking in the nuances of this world that is so new to a developing conscious being. Five year old Yotsuba Koiwai is the child that many of us have resembled at some point in our lives, read more

yotsuba&! is a comedy. :) its written by the author of AZUMANGA DAIOH!. both of the mangas are great. yotsuba&, however, is not an anime. T T why do people not convert it into an anime? i have no idea.

anyways, i find everything about this manga very enjoyable. there is no profanity, but a little use of suggestive words here and there.....

if you enjoy comedy, then you will LOVE this manga. the main character, yotsuba, looks different in almost all of the beginning of the manga. {Vol. 1,2, & 3}. read more

Yotsuba is a manga about parenting that is actually the only thing from Japan that makes me laugh. It's not easy to see simplicity and quality so close to each other. But what does an episodic series about an energetic girl and her friends' adventures have of special? In terms of story, the jokes are so ingenious and simple it makes you wonder how it is possible. Seriously, the number of visual jokes that are not overused and actually work several times is astonishing. No surprise I feel so good while reading it, it explodes of so much genuineness contained in it. That's because the read more

This is a story about Koiwai Yotsuba, a fantastically energetic, curious, and friendly 5 year old who lives with her father. The theme of this manga is "Enjoy everything!" and Yotsuba certainly knows how to do it.

The innocence and wonder of this endearing manga really shine through. There's a pervasive feeling of peace and happiness, and I've found it impossible to come away without a smile and a good mood.

It's a slice-of-life, and it manages to be hilarious and sweet without being cloying. All of the characters are genuine and lovable.

The character design art is very similar to the author's other work, read more

Yotsuba&! is a fun, funny, and fabulous manga that is sure to brighten up anyone's day.

Story 9/10
Yotsuba&! tells of the many adventures of 6-year old named Yotsuba(literally four-leaf in Japanese) and of the people around her. Although their isn't much of a story, the way it is told is Fun (or for Yotsuba SUPER FUN^_^), Funny, Crazy, Cool, and Heartwarming. The only story right now is that Yotsuba moved into a new neighborhood from somewhere "waaaaaaay over there". Of course, the way it is told makes it so that you don't really need a plot or anything like that. Just "enjoy everything" like Yotsuba.

Art read more

For the first fifty or so chapters I quite enjoyed Yotsuba, the art is clean, crisp and realistic with the exception Yotsuba herself to provide contrast. The comedy is well thought and relatable to anyone who remembers their naivete as a child or interacts with children. The side characters have their own quirks to make them fun and unique and I grew particularly fond of Fuuka and Jumbo and their wacky hijinks.

Like with a lot of comedies it loses steam after a while as the jokes and situations slowly repeat themselves, I think it's past it's peak and the mangaka should look to ending read more

I gave this manga a 10 on everything because I don't see any flaws with it,for a Slice of Life manga it is quiet an outstanding work and honestly who needs a plot?This is SoL!

Yotsuba&! is the best manga I've read to date! along with Azumanga Daioh.Is funny,is cute and it never gets boring or irritating but of course once in a while you will need a break from reading.
For one the characters are absolutely amazing,Yotsuba is a little hyperactive 5-year old who isn't afraid of experiencing new adventures,the characters who revolve around her give her a chance to learn more about the world read more

To be completely honest, the slice of life genre never really appealed to me. I didn't understand what was so riveting about watching people do ordinary things, things we do and see every day. I don't know what in the world made be pick up Yotsuba&!, because what could possibly satisfy me out of a slice of life?

...Lots, actually.

What I didn't realize is that what makes the slice of life genre come alive are the characters. It relies on the characters to make new, insightful, or hilarious observations of the mundane and turn ordinary situations into something unique, or at least look at them from read more

I will not write LONG LONG reviews....even you can tell me it not suitable for a review though....(eventually,it's not a review...just vthe details and how i understand the manga)


Everyday Is Fun!
That's the the main plot of the story,daily life can be made very interesting with our little Yotsuba...The Plot/Story may be a simple one but 'simple' is very amazing,it made very simple story because so everyone can enjoyed and because the author wanted to make a relaxing manga that can be read not in a hurry....

Many our attention come to our kawaii Yotsuba that wanted to know about the world,things and etc.Many characters (Again) has read more

Story: It's the story about a 5-year-old girl completely new to the world. She meets new people and experience new experiences with each passing day. You don't see that everyday in anime, do you? But I'll also say this manga has no plot. I'll say a 8/10.

Art: The art is good, isn't that unique but somehow is unique. It's good for this type of anime. 8/10

Character: The character personalty and how they change (and of course, why) is clear and the characters are amazing. All of the characters, especially Yotsuba, are interesting in their own way, Yotsuba with her newbie-ness to the world, and there read more

This is the funniest manga I've ever read. From my younger brother (who is just 7 years old and is learning how to read) to my friends and even who are much older than me laugh while reading this manga.
I personally hate kids but somehow I really love, love Yotsuba-chan. She makes every corners of life lively. Even when I'm most depressed, reading this manga can make me happy again.

Yotsuba&! is a great slice-of-life that follows the main character Yotsuba enjoying her day to day life. There's a lot of wacky moments which I feel make the manga even better. Almost always Yotsuba is learning and experiencing something new so there's never a lack of surprises (Yotsuba reacting to a scarecrow for example). It's really easy to follow and the art style is really easy on the eyes. I suggest you read Yotsuba&! if you are into slice-of-life since theres no action or mystery. That would also lead me to say, don't expect the manga to be too serious, the way characters react to read more

When I first read Yotsabato!, I expected it to just be an innocent little kids' manga, with some childish jokes thrown in. I was wrong. It's actually possibly one of the funniest mangas I've ever read.

Story: 6/10
If you're looking for a great story, sorry, Yotsubato! is not the place to go. It's got an episodic storyline, with no proper plot, but I guess that's just what you'd expect from a comedy. There is the mystery of Yotsba's origins (she's adopted), but not much attention is drawn to that.

Art: 8/10
The art has a similar feel to a Disney movie; the characters are drawn simply, but look read more
