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. 
reportRecommended by Northlander
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. 
reportRecommended by Yuunagi
Both are a slice of life involving not so normal little girls and their daily antics with their neighbors and community.

Yotsubato! and Flying Witch has a similar atmospheric setting (similar to feeling of countryside). Their storytelling expresses slice of life content with credible intentions and crafts an elegant vibe. Both series' main female protagonist are also curious about the wonders of their world as we see their daily adventures. Recommended for manga readers of any age and genre. Do note that Flying Witch also has some fantasy themes.

Both are stories about a single dad raising an adorable little girl. Both have elements of innocence and wonder, and both are sweet and funny. I think Yotsuba&! is more funny than Usagi Drop, but Usagi Drop is better at portraying the realities of daily life with a young child.

In the eyes of the innocent, the world is always full of wonders. 
reportRecommended by Yuunagi
Both stories are about a little girl and how she goes around doing whatever she does. In Shirogane no Nina there is a little more emphasis on the main male character, however both portray the same innocence of the main female lead.

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 doing cute  read more

If you're looking for something equally as light-hearted, I recommend Nichijou: there's more comedy and it gets a little weird at times, but like Yotsubato!?, all of the characters are lovable, and you can pick it up at any point due to a lack of 'plot' - each new chapter brings a new story.

If you loved Yotsuba, then you will absolutely love Crayon Shin-Chan too! Both manga series are about children at the age of 5. They are both a little bit rude, crazy and not really smart. But they are really funny as well! Yotsuba and Crayon Shin-Chan both have short stories. Every chapter is a new adventure. A must read for every manga comedy fan out there! 
reportRecommended by Nerdo
Imagine if Yotsuba was split into three separate pre-school girls. That pretty much summarizes Mitsuboshi Colors. There's really no simpler way to describe it. The comedy style and the character interactions are just that similar. 
reportRecommended by Wotuwa
Slice of life series that adapts comedy with different perspectives. Both manga has a female protagonist who has more of a clever and mischievous personality. The relationships they form with others is refreshing with a sense of fun when it comes to conversations. And despite not portraying a direct story, both series has a good set of themes when presenting their narratives.

Curious cute little girl doing cute stuff in the strangest way possible is the premise of these comedy manga both catering to the male demographic (whether Yotsuba is seinen or shounen is still arguable so let's generalize that). Art in both are greatly similar to one another - simple yet appealing.

The story is really different, But both they are amazing slice of life mangas with comedy. They're both really cute. Otoyomegatari is more serious, and is less easygoing than Yotsubato, But they both have the same feeling to it and if you like the one, you'll like the other.

The two stories indulge in the slice of life aspect of two young naive innocent little girls. Both manga's show the joy and struggles of raising children. The Tone & narrative of both manga's are very funny, which in turn makes every page exciting and intoxicating wanting more and more with no dull moments.

Story about raising children and their adventures with a single parent. 
reportRecommended by SatanAbyss
Even though it's a Manhwa and the other one is Manga , the drawing are significantly similar, also it contain spontaneous comedy.The characters reactions are almost identical in both of them. 
reportRecommended by Amanemisame
Comedy manga about taking care of a rather special and very cute girl as a parent. While Yotsubato is more slice of life, Spy x Family has some action elements. 
reportRecommended by abystoma2
It is a story about raising a kid in Japan filled with many good side characters. Honestly it would be totally awesome if one day they had a cross over, how will yotsuba interact with shou. They both will get into wacky adventures. 
reportRecommended by SatanAbyss
Similar art style, humor and general slice of life feel. If you like 'Yotsuba to', it's very likely you'll enjoy 'Emperor to Issho' as well 
reportRecommended by -ia
Both feature young girls with an indefatigable spirit for curiosity and happiness, unstoppable in their pursuit for a brighter day. Beneath the veneer of boring every day life, both aspire and succeed in capturing a deeply optimistic and poignantly humanistic understanding of humanity. Delicate and romantic, these manga are not meant to be read, but experienced in all of their delightful simplicity. 
reportRecommended by Yudina
Both are slice of life stories featuring young children, their single guardian, and the people around them. They're pretty episodic, featuring sweet and funny stories (sometimes even sad). Both are really cute with similar feels and will probably appeal to fans of the other! 
reportRecommended by Therru_Ghibli
It's the same safe and ultra-realistic slice of life comedy. It's the same comfy, delightful and enjoyable reading. "Akita Imokko! Ebina-chan" is not like "Himouto Umaru-chan", it's way more sedate and tranquil. Just like "Yotsubato!". Endless cuteness, too.

- Both are hilarious - Both focus on the relations and interactions between characters - Very unique characters - Comedic relief

Yotsuba& and Fairy Idol Kanon are two fun age-appropriate manga from 2003 featuring a young female protagonist. Fairy Idol Kanon has fantasy and more story-based elements while Yotsuba& is a comic featuring what slice-of-life comics can offer, but despite the differences, they are just really fun to read and both series have cute artwork on top of that. 
reportRecommended by Fario-P
similar laidback SOL comedy about a man raising his daughter, both have realistic art styles, which reflects the realistic characters, I'd say if you liked the art, humor, and general feel of Yotsuba you'll enjoy Sen to Man (except Yotsuba's reaction faces are way better) main difference is that the daughter in Sen to Man is already in Junior High, so she acts more independent and grumpy (like a real teenager)

Pikari is practically a teenage Yotsuba who discovered the joy of scuba diving. Both are great warm and fuzzy slice-of-life series about finding fascination in everyday life. 
reportRecommended by Tickub
Both mangas feature a single father with a cute and energetic little girl. The themes are different but there's similitudes in the tone and pacing. 
reportRecommended by Johnny-Jay
Both have the same wonderful healing slice of life properties. Beautifully drawn and all around very charming manga series.

Cute manga about taking care of kids. 
reportRecommended by puriprincess
Both manga show how a kid views the world. Both are simple cute stories. 
reportRecommended by mangareader123
The story isn't similar, but both are very funny, crazy manga's with an easy plot line. Yotsuba & focuses on daily life, Hataraku Maou-sama! High School! focuses on our favorite characters from the main series going to school together. Both are slice of life manga's. 
reportRecommended by NinjaZombie
Similar calming atmosphere. Chikyuu no Houkago has major sci-fi and mystery elements, while Yotsubato is purely slice of life. 
reportRecommended by DarthBob
Looking for some relaxing slice of life? The answer is here. Both Yotsubato and Non Non Biyori are classic examples of how slice of life is portrayed. The main female character has a curious personality with a fascination of the world. The relationships that exists in both series are also charming with great focus on their lives. The quiet and serene atmosphere of both series are excellently portrayed. Highly recommended for anyone who wants a bite at slice of life.

Ever wondered what Nodame was like as a child? Yotsuba would most likely bethe best way to describe the carefree, expressive, imaginative yet naive Nodame before she became the great musician.

Hotman is the dramatic version of Yotsuba with a single father, who would be similar to Jumbo, raising his group of daughters as he struggles financially. Hotman is essentially a combination of Great Teacher Onizuka and Yotsuba with a mix of some romantic drama aimed at a mature audience. 
reportRecommended by arimakenshin
There both funny and in both the main character is a mischievous girl, although Yotsuba is more clueless. 
reportRecommended by ssj4skills
Both series are good slice of life, though while Yotsuba is much funnie, Sonna Mirai wa Uso de Aru is more soothing in terms of mood. 
reportRecommended by ashton
Both are cheerful, heart-warming stories about raising children. Full of funny events and optimistic, makes you smile all the time while reading. 
reportRecommended by Kamcio
both have an older man looking after a young girl, although Yotsuba is more focused on the "adventures" of the little girl and the friends she makes. Yotsuba is lighthearted with serious moments. 
reportRecommended by otakureese
I'm only at the first volume of Kobato so I don't know how much emphasis is there on the supernatural part later , but the beginning reminded me a lot of Yotsuba&! because both mangas show every day life in a really heart warming way . 
reportRecommended by Roxanne
Yotsuba follows the daily randomness and amazement with everything of its titular heroine. She's got a screw or two lose/is mentally disabled and likes smiling as she gets involved with the family next-door, after moving to a new town. It's purely slice-of-life and - in the first five volumes, at least - has no real direction. Chinatsu, like Yotsuba, follows the life of its titular heroine after she moves to a new town. Unlike Yotsuba, Chinatsu comes across like a person, despite of her friendliness and cheerful, smiling nature, and it's easy to understand why everyone come to love her. There's a touch of romance and  read more

These two are similar on many levels, both deal with leading characters who have little understanding of the world, hilarity ensues. 
reportRecommended by drognen
Both involve cute little girls discovering the world. Good for people looking for heartwarming comedy, wanting to d'awwww, and pedophiles.  
reportRecommended by CrashRHCP
They both have a lil kid who is learning and discovering about the world as a main character, so for those who like that kind of manga they might like Ano Ko no Ie. So far Ano Ko no Ie seems more mature and not as comic as Yotsubato, but its still quite good. 
reportRecommended by God-Mars
Both series are full of innocence and dreams. It has children's power of making everything new and magic. Whereas "papa told me" feels older and more refined, yotsubato has a faster pace but they are both refreshing stories worth opening a dreaming window with a soft heart.

Freaking child gets roasted by adults. 
reportRecommended by Rupdedudludu
Simple SOL series depicting the experiences a young girl as she tackles everyday life. Both series has lighthearted comedy with realism and interactions with others. While lacking complex story arcs, it makes it up with the creative way it depicts everyday life. Joshikausei is noticeable for its absence of dialogues. Recommended for fans of slice of life. 
reportRecommended by Stark700
Both revolve around peculiar female protagonists in a relaxed slice of life series and the comedy is pretty similar as we watch our protagonists get into awkward situations with hilarious actions. 
reportRecommended by Drugzy
Both very cute with little kids causing the main protagonist lots of trouble and joy. Nice reads, especially when your just wanting something that will make you go "aww"

Oku-san is almost exactly like Yotsubato!, mainly in tone and characters, but here the curious 5-year-old is replaced with an extremely whimsical housewife of 32 years. 
reportRecommended by mwp
There aren't many other series that can take a perfectly safe, idealized world and make it feel so realistic and well-done. Kimi Ni Todoke may be the more dramatic of the two, but the feeling you get from it is the same as Yotsuba&. 
reportRecommended by Yerocha
They both reminded me of each other because they are laidback, cute, sometimes silly(More in Yotsubato!'s case), and have memorable characters. 
reportRecommended by HatchetGirl
Both are gentle slice-of-life manga with themes of childhood and growing up. The two manga share curious protagonists, and the stories focus on their often comedic interactions with fellow characters and their discovery of new experiences and people. If you can keep an open mind towards Neko Musume Michikusa Nikki's more supernatural elements in comparison to Yotsubato!, you will likely enjoy one series if you enjoyed the other.
