10歲前後的孩童時期,松本大洋曾經在無法與親人一起住的設施裡度過。《Sunny》便是他融合自己的體驗與成長經歷,紀念每滴眼淚與笑容的最新力作。

星之子學園──在這裡有著因為各種關係,而不得不與親人分開生活的孩子們。孩子不僅要學會在沒有父母的陪伴下生活、就學,要學會面對社會冷淡的眼光、要學會思考,甚至擁有夢想。在陽光灑落的學園角落一隅,有著一台破舊不堪的SUNNY 1200老跑車,大家稱這部車子為秘密基地「SUNNY」。這裡是孩子們玩樂的地方、也是他們的教室;這裡有色情書刊、有便當,孩子們在這裡嬉鬧、打盹,在這裡因為思念父母而淚流不止……。孩子們相信,SUNNY雖然不能發動了,但只要用想像力,就可以駕駛它到任何地方。

Second volume is stronger than the first - or maybe it's just that the overall story is deepening and the characters are becoming more familiar. Lots of impressive moments throughout and eager to see where this goes.

Huruo with the white hair visits his cold mother in Tokyo. Lovely story with a great pace.
Nicola Mansfield
This sienen manga (aimed at men over 18) continues on with six more chapters which are more like vignettes than any sort of continuous story. Each chapter, like the first volume concentrates on one foster child and we, the reader, are getting to know the personalities and deeper heartaches of these children. A few of the children are beginning to stand out as main characters but still new ones manage to be featured as well. Each story hits upon a sad theme: realization of abandonment is a strong ...more

As if it were even possible, this volume's even better than the first. We get more intimate insights into Sei's and Haruo's personalities. Poignant stuff for sure.

soy una romántica y mis historias favoritas son todas las que buscan un destello de amor y esperanza en medio de la más brutal de las realidades y los gestos más egoístas, sin perder nunca el sentido de la realidad. sunny es todo eso.

Six more stories of the Star Kids (foster) Home, loosely connected, beautiful rendered. Sad. Feelings of abandonment, though there's also some sweetness, and kid strength. More tone-driven rather than plot-driven. Sei's and Haruo's personalities are developed, deepened, in this volume.

Maybe the best two stories are the last, and maybe the very best is about Haruo's visit to his birth mother in Tokyo. Pretty heart-breaking, but it's not too depressing, finally. And not sappy or manipulative, giv

La storia prende più consistenza e colpisce di più. Perchè al di là del chiacchiericcio perenne, dei bisticci e del frastuono dell'istituto di Sunny, conosciamo già meglio i protagonisti e sentiamo di più quello che sentono. I capitoli su Haruo sono molto belli, così come bellissima la parentesi del nuovo bambino che sembra destinato a restare, come gli altri, ma dopo poco viene ripreso dai genitori, e che ci consente di ripetere la dinamica di Sei, per poi portare un forte carico di delusione e ...more

En el segundo volumen de Sunny, Matsumoto sigue escribiendo historias trágicas y preciosas con una precisión y una delicadeza envidiables. Y como ya conocemos a los personajes, estas se vuelven más duras y tristes. Muy recomendado.

Stronger than the first volume. The story about Haruo visiting his mother is my favorite.

Like the 1st volume, there were things I didn't particularly like, but this story is so beautiful and I can't wait to see how it unfolds. Four more to go!

In questo secondo volume conosciamo sempre meglio i ragazzi dell'orfanotrofio.
Se non piace il genere "slice of life" potrebbe risultare noioso.
Ma in realtà è un gioiellino di questo genere.

Matsumoto continues to prove himself a master at the art of developing story sideways. Taking the most round about way to get from plot point a to plot point b, the story is slow but (personally) never boring. Exploring the themes of family and familial love to an impressive depth, it never felt like he was trying very hard (in a bad way). Rather each story feels like a puzzle piece to slowly reveal some small aspect of the greater whole that is being developed across the entire series.

J'ai plus accroché avec ce second tome. J'ai fini par m'attacher aux personnages, à leurs histoires. J'ai fini par plus ou moins oublié le dessin avec lequel j'ai toujours du mal à accrocher.

Matsumoto Taiyo is one of those artists that can break your heart in three panels.

Sunny, Vol. 2 continues where Vol. 1 off, following the residents of the Hoshinoko orphanage as they navigate adolescence. The writer/artist demonstrates his sensitive understanding of childhood in the washy ink depictions of everyday events, the ma/emptiness of the environment, and the sublime nature of intention and emotion.

Though there is no over-arching plot to tie the vingettes together, there is repeating

The euphoria I felt from the first volume has worn off a little, but this volume skillfully and beautifully builds upon the world and the characters already set out. The stories are quiet and discreet, but rich with emotion and development as the children of the Star Kids Home try to navigate school, relationships, and the world of adulthood that seems to lie just beyond their grasp. The last two stories that focus on Haruo and his mother are especially gut wrenching with their unmentioned impli ...more

The story DOES get better. Which is natural, as we are shown more of the character's lives. Each kid has an intriguing backstory, and if not a backstory, the way they react to their environment and the relationships they have shows interesting facets of their personality.

Once again, I totally recommend a physical copy of this series, especially in hardcover. I feel like reading this digitally would take away the "homely" and "simple" feel from the series.
Holly Letson
This series progressively got better as it went along. You find yourself drawn to these children, and wanting to know more about them and thier "difficult" lives. You find yourself wanting things to get better for them, yet sad when it does not.

There's a lot of complex stuff going on here... the main characters are orphans in an orphanage called Star Kids Home in the 1970s. It's interesting to see how the author/artist is setting this group of kids as a family while also allowing their negative personality traits to shine. I think most people can see elements of themselves in these kids, who are really just desperate for love.

Oh my poor babies! There are definitely some mysteries surrounding children at the Star Kids Home. I’m anxiously awaiting reading volume 3! The art is gorgeous and I definitely anxiously awaiting reading the next volume!

The artwork is beautiful and has amazing detail. He really has a good understanding inside the head of a child's sense of abandonment. Heartbreaking at times.

He gained his first success through the Comic Open contest, held by the magazine Comic Morning, which allowed him to make his professional debut. He started out with 'Straight', a comic about basketball players. Sports remain his main influence in his next comic, 'Z ...more
