Reading this manga is like waking up in a scenic meadow with warm sunshine and a gentle breeze brushing past you. There's something inherently calming and satisfying about the experience, and you'll leave it feeling somewhat enlightened, glad that you were willing to give it a go.

Balancing Toy is a shoujo manga by Aiji Yamakama, and for those of you who have read 'Tomodachi no Hanashi', you'd be well acquainted with this mangaka's pleasant art style.

This manga is very heartwarming and leaves you with a fluffy feeling once you've finished it~

It's a slice of life, dealing with a young girl called Haru, her stepdad Seiji and their friends and acquaintances and their relationships. The basic story is in itself nothing new, the ending is very open, but works well (especially when compared to the ending of a similar manga, 'usagi drop' and how that wrecked the entire story).

The characters are all very cute and likeable, even Chii-san (Seiji's friend from college and potential love interest), whom I was sceptical about at first, turned out to be very pleasing to watch. read more
