Kids Are All Right is a poignant and serious manhwa. It is about a young boy in elementary school named Dai who has a lot of what most people would call troubles. But he doesn't think of them that way. He only thinks of himself as a normal boy.
Dai's mother is in the hospital with a terminal illness, and his father works long hours, so Dai must take care of himself. The story is told in short episodes, with each episode or two being devoted to some small event it Dai's life. Some of the issues dealt with include: making friends, dealing with teachers
and classmates who may or may not understand his circumstances, and trying to make his own moral judgments with little guidance.
Seeing things from Dai's point of view made me remember my own childhood. His viewpoint of the world is that of a child's, and he doesn't understand that some people are bad even if they act nice or that other people's lives and viewpoints can be so different from his own. He is a very responsible and smart boy, so he does alright. It is still hard to watch him struggle though things.
The art in this manhwa is unusual. I can't really call it bad, though, because it has a purpose in looking amateur-ish. It is supposed to look like a child's drawing. It may seem strange at first, but it makes more sense as you read it. I don't think the story would have been as moving if the characters had been drawn realistically.
This is a very beautiful story that should be given a chance even if the art makes you want to put it down.
