Preliminary
This one wasn't classified as seinen for nothing, so if you're expecting a cute story, then pass. But if what you search in manga is a collision of ordinary human's life and society issues, that's one pretty unique read. It's trashy sometimes and heartwarming sometimes, just as a life of nasty, low-educated but still pure in heart kid looks like. This is also the only manga I know which deals with "gender-neutral" popularizing teacher and describes the flaws of both having and not having sexual education. This is the atory where naive and undisciplined kids have to decide the adult questions because...the adults sometimes behave read more

It starts as a regular childish adventure tale, but the end has a really unexpected ending with strong and a bit bitter social and environemental message.
The artwork is rather easygoing, but the frames are made that way that you have a feeling of watching a movie. It's a must-read if you like Japanese manga for having a message behind the story.

It starts with a tragic event, but then goes as a serie of rather unconnected funny stories. Those remind me of Doraemon and Minky Momo, both. This is a laughable book, but some jokes are kind of harsh. And since you always remember that her mom is dead, it makes the whole taste of the book bittersweet. It's a good read, but for a peculiar taste for stories. IMO, that merry-making in sorrowful general situation is something typical for old, past-war manga.
