Somali and The Forest Spirit is like a cold beverage on a hot day.
You're covered in sweat, eager to rush something cold down your throat, then after you take a big gulp out of that sweet beverage, you let out a cry of utter satisfaction.
This manga revolves around a world, in where humanity declined, and non-humans have taken over.
Somali, a human girl, was lost and bound with chains in a certain forest, until that forest's guardian, a golem, finds her.
The golem then leaves the forest, which he spent all of his life protecting, to search for the girl's family.
Now the premise might sound like another fantasy manga, but I personally, never actually read something this soothing.
The scenery presented is amazing, and the atmosphere leaves off a sense of childlike wonder, something that I've been craving to feel again.
The father-daughter relationship, between the golem and Somali is super cute, and every panel of them doing something together is just heartwarming.
Without going into details, I recommend this to anyone who seeks a lighthearted, cute and wondrous adventure story, that leaves you feeling happy.
If you're having a bad day, this is an effective form of medication
