5.0 out of 5 stars Cute and Crazy, June 20, 2005
This review is from: Yotsuba&! Volume 1 (Paperback)
"Yotusba&" is the latest work from Kiyohiko Azuma, the genius who brought us "Azumanga Daioh". I had high expectations for this manga, and they were well met. "Yotsuba&" is every bit as wild and hilarious as "Azumanga Daioh", but cuter.

The story is about a four year old girl, Yotsuba, who just moved with her dad. She soon meets her neighbors, the Ayase sisters, and involves them in her crazy adventures. Yotsuba herself is absolutely adorable, but she has absolutely no clue about the world around her. If you've read "Azumanga Daioh", you could think of her as a cross between Chiyo-Chan and Osaka. The sisters Asagi(the pretty one), Fuka(the unpretty one), and Ena(the short one) are totally believable characters. So does Yotsuba's kind of lazy dad, and their friend, the giant Jumbo.

The art is simple, but it gets the job done. The characters are nice to look at, and the backgrounds are well-done. There isn't a lot of detail with the characters, but this is not like a shoujo. The art is perfect for the subject matter.

If you've read "Azumanga Daioh" and liked it(to read it is to like it), get "Yotsuba&". You won't be disappointed. If you haven't read "Azumanga Daioh", get this anyway. This is a great read for just about everyone.
