Picked up this apparently obscure manga for a college anime/manga class - didn't have any expectations going into it, but I ended up enjoying it a lot.

Nonnonba to Ore, or simply Nonnonba, is a story about growing up - the chapters each provide vignettes of daily life growing up in pre-WW2 Japan, evoking senses of nostalgia easily even if one did not live through the time period. Some chapters are connected, some aren't. The book is, then, better enjoyed in chunks than plowing through it all at once.

The book's art style is interesting - personally, I found it more reminiscent of western cartoons than what's read more
