Yotsuba is pure awesomesauce.
That's the only way to describe it, really. Yotsuba&! is a slice-of-life with a protagonist so likable that even manga boycotters will line up to read. Unlike other slice of life like K-On! and (of course) Lucky Star, Yotsuba&! has no big controversy against it. It'll be hard to even find a hater. Handy dandy list of good points:
A Joyful Read.
I've always liked Slice of Life, and Yotsuba is no exception, being funny, cute, and all around lovable. The setting is somewhere in Japan, but much of the humor is rather universal as kids will be kids no matter where they grow up. Things I like about Yotsuba:
- It's cute.
- The characters are:
- Believable and easy to relate with.
- Charming(well, the jury is still out on Yanda, but still...)
- The pacing isn't too fast as to cause confusion yet not so slow as to become boring.
- The humor is well done aside from an occasional joke that didn't translate very well. Seeing as this comes from Japan, linguistic issues are to be expected.
