Read in July, 2012

Wow, very bizarre. This episodic manga is about a young girl - Yotsuba - moving to a new town with her Dad, and meeting the family of a mother and three daughters that lives next door. Somehow the endearingly obnoxious Yotsuba charms her neighbours more than she annoys, and miraculously has the same effect on this reader too. I'm not sure why this is so appealing - the stories are very episodic and really pretty slight with little true plot development over this volume. But the depiction of Yotsuba, with her confusion and capriciousness and curiosity is really entertaining and endearing.

I'm not giving it a rating as I wouldn't know whether to give it 2 stars for being so slight or 5 stars for being so well done.

Simon Wigzell Read a few more volumes and hopefully it'll be the 5 star option :-)

I think Yotsuba&! Is the best manga being created at the moment, but your mileage may vary.

I've ordered more! It is just really enjoyable. I'll be interested to see how it develops in the later volumes.
