This manga is extremely good. It's not dark or deep or psychological or any of that dumb stuff. Pseudo-intellectual nerds won't care for it. There's no action, nor a complex plot. But what most don't understand is that all of these things are completely inessential! There is only one thing that matters, in life, art, or otherwise. It's CUUUUUUUUTE. (i refuse to use the word kawaii, im not a filthy weeb like you degenerates)
'Yuzumori-san' is about a high-school aged female lolicon-in-denial who befriends an elementary schoolgirl. They go home together, eat ice cream together, and brave their way through thunderstorms. Isn't that just perfect????? Honestly,
I could just replace this 'review' with a collection of screencaps from it and it would be way more convincing. There's a lot of really good panels. It's funny and cute, and the art is good. What else could you possibly ask for? There's only 12 chapters out now, and I want more.
It's a really good manga and I like it.
Note: I'm mostly just writing this so I can remember to check for updates in the future, thank you.
UPDATE: Up to 17 chapters now. I'm still not disappointed. I have nothing more to add. Recommended.
Do you like lolis? Do you like Shoujo-Ai? Because if the answer to both of these is yes, you need to read this hilarious yet super-cute lolicon manga.
TL;DR at the bottom!
Also note that this is kind of a preview-review since at the time of writing only 3 chapters have been translated into english.
We are first introduced to one of our main characters, a normal 2nd year highschool girl named Mimika. At the first sight, she seems innocent but is actually a huge lolicon. After her introduction, we soon are introduced to our second main character, Yuzumori-san. She is a elementary schooler in her
4th grade. Yuzumori-san is cute, very captivating and a bit mysterious character at first glance which captures Mimikas attention at the first sight. This is how our story begins.
Yuzumori-san (the manga itself, not the character) is a comedic slice-of-life story about two girls getting to know eachother. The strong point of this manga is definitely it's humour so far.
The artstyle is very pleasant to eye and clean enough and the chapters aren't over long which makes the reading very easy. I love how the. Artist shifts between two or three different styles in chapters. One for the normal style which covers every normal scene where the characters either think or we are shown the background/city. Second being the cute style which is used when our main characters do something cute together, like eat ice cream and offer bites to eachother and stuff~. Last but not least the not-so-detailed, comedic artstyle which is used every now and then. It contrasts really well the cute parts.
Overall this easy-to-read, pleasant to eye, funny and cute at the same time -manga is a great readthrough if you are a fan of comedy and slice-of-life genres. I recommend this to everyone who enjoys a good romcom without much drama.
This Manga tells a story about a high school girl named Mimika, who one day stumbled upon an elementary schooler Yuzumori and fell in love with her almost immediately.
The Story focuses heavily on Mimika’s mentality and her struggle to deal with her feelings and how falling in love with someone so much younger is unacceptable in modern society.
So far the characters weren’t that much developed, but are really interesting nonetheless.
Mimika’s thought process is unique to this series, I’ve never seen anything similar to this anywhere else. Watching her daily interactions with Yuzumori-san is a quite unusual experience too.
Yuzumori is a very unpredictable character,
you can never guess what she’s thinking or how she’s going to react to certain situations.
Besides the main couple there is also Mimika’s friend, who reflects the readers’ way of thinking - she sees Mimika’s and Yuzumori’s relationship as something weird and uncomprehensible. So far we don’t know that much about her character, but I’m sure we will get to know her better soon enough.
The series is quite fast-paced, there’s only 16 chapters so far, but we already got a lot of content. Romance between the main couple develops constantly and is handled really well, in a short period of time we got more romance than in two seasons of Kimi ni Todoke.
Now something about the most distinguishing feature of this manga - the way of portraying the story. It’s weird. Really weird. For the majority of the series the characters are drawn in a cutesy way, so they would be as kawaii as it’s conceivably possible, but sometimes we get really unusual, very intense moments with tension as high as in some action shounen series. Suddenly you have a feeling that you’re reading some horror instead of a casual story about cute girls. Sometimes the characters have really ominous expressions on their faces, and some scenes are drawn from weird angles. As a whole it feels like something intriguing and you can’t help but ask questions like ‘’What is the author trying to convey? Does this man know how to make a manga? Why is he constantly playing with my emotions?’’
Overall Yuzumori-san is highly enjoyable, but also the most bizzare shoujo ai story I have ever read. I reccomend it to anyone who wants to read a manga from that genre, told from a really unconventional angle.
