This is the fairytale storybook sweet story of friendship between an invalid teenage girl, and the peculiar fox-eared and -tailed little girl who comes upon her one day. The 'poor little rich girl' has been ill her whole life, and lonely until she meets her new playmate.
If there ever was a Manga that was so well drawn, so well structured and could be told without the need for words Little Little does just that.
Story: How could a Manga without any dialog in it what so ever have a story in it that's worth a 10 right? Well this one does and it is told through body language. Aside from spoken words, body language is the number one was to communicate with some one else without the use of words. So the story itself is the actual interaction between 2 young girls that share feelings and emotions together in the purest
way possible. This Manga is 100% clean, so get all those perverted yuri thoughts out of your head. ( ^ . ^ )
Art: If a Manga was going to have no spoken dialog in it, then the art had better be pretty good right? Well in this Manga it does just that painting a colorful picture with the way how speechless characters are drawn and interact with one another. The eye's and the body language is just incredible. Backgrounds are flushed out in gorgeous detail and without words, the art speaks for itself in a way as these 2 girls play with each and just have so much fun in their daily lives.
Characters: This Manga only really has 2 Star characters. A rich girl who from her clothing and house, is from a very wealthy family. The second an inquisitive little feline friend. However, it is evident and shown there are more. The other roles pale in comparison to the two main girls who meet together and form a special bond with one another without even saying a word.
Enjoyment: I honestly just truly enjoyed this Manga to death. This Manga feels like a breath of fresh air after my eyes have been soaked in blood, or my body ripped to pieces from other Manga I've read through or scene. It was so refreshing to not have to read anything at all, and just go through a story by watching people interact with one another. This in itself forms a special bond between the reader and what they see drawn onto the actual pages itself. If you get so into it and really attached to the characters, I'll tell you what, you might even shed a few tears by the end of the story. However, you'll get no spoilers from me, you'll just have to read it and find out why.
Overall: This Manga really deserves more views and praise then what few it has gotten. I really want other people to see that if you're into the most violent gore-sown Manga or Anime's you've ever read, you will honestly find relief taking a break and reading this story. Sure it's cute and it is lacking that bone-braking action of some other things, but behind all that it's something more powerful then that. It let's you appreciate something you might have never expected to experience before by actually taking the time to read a Manga that has no words in it. That isn't completely true...there is dialog at the very end, and the words that are spoken are emotionally moving.
I'll be honest, as a dialog-less Manga you can get through this in about 10 to 15 minutes depending on how long you want to look at this and enjoy it. So therefore, because I feel so strongly about this Manga and how badly I'd like you to experience something new. Here's an actual link where you can read it for yourself and judge if what I say is true or not.
Enjoy a small break from the world of words if you do choose to take the plunge and decide to read this.
While hardly any words are used, the good artwork does a fine job of conveying each chapter's episodic story that does have some continuity. There is nothing shoji-ai about this, however. It just follows the girl's little adventures and friendship with animal children through her illness to a heart-warming finish. Regardless, it's a cute story and fast read that makes a good interlude from everything else I've been reading.
Little Little may be a dialogue-less story, however, I believe, it is purely intentional to let the reader's mind wonder what is being said. And, it was made this way so it could be an innocent read.
I admit, there is little thinking required for this manga, but, it is fairly adorable and the art is enjoyable. So, overall, if you are the type to take comfort in a simple story-line with interesting artwork, then, Little Little is a manga that you should take the time to read.
This story is just adorable. There is no dialogue, and there is little background story, but that leaves it to your imagination.
The Story is very simple, and this is also part of my imagination as well, as there is no background. I see it as a little girl who probably has Tuberculosis, or something along those lines. She has no friends because she can't leave home often, and meets a cute little "furry". And they become best friends.
And That's basically all the story. I really enjoyed it, and only took about 10 minutes of slow page turning to
finish it all.
