The story of a girl called Ichiko, who lives alone in a forest. Each chapter features a dish or meal scavenged or harvested from Ichiko's surroundings in rural Komori ("little forest"). While there are no wild flights of fancy as in Witches or Hanashippanashi, the organic linework and majesty of nature featured within tap into that same source of magic. Little Forest is a very acquired taste on its own, but just another piece of the stunning tapestry Daisuke Igarashi continues to weave today.

A bloody refreshing read.

It's a rather simple story about finding purpose in life. The premise follows a young lady living on a farm as she cultivates and harvests depending on the seasons. We see her reasons for living on the farm, as well as the daily ins and outs of farming itself, including my personal favorite moments— creating delicious meals out of her crops. Undoubtedly mundane things, sure, but damn is there beauty in life's simple moments.

Briefly on the art. If you've read any of Daisuke's other works, you're probably used to it. It's got this sketchy, yet detailed sort of aesthetic. It's read more
