Yotsuba& : The best comic in the world?
The answer is "yes". I don't read many comics these days and even less manga. Yotsuba is the only manga that I can honestly say I pick up and re-read every chance I get.
The story is about a 5 year old girl and her father moving into a new neighborhood. It's a comedy that revolves around this green haired girl discovering the world around her and the characters in it. It's cutesy innocent and at the same time knee slapping funny.
7 collected volumes have been published in Japan but ADV has only released 3 volumes in the US. As a special treat for YODC readers, here is a link to the first 6 volumes, fan-translated. Also included are 2 rare mini comics that were never collected.
I highly recommend that you read them in order, but it you only want a taste, give chapter 30 a shot..."Yotsuba and Yanda" Where Yotsuba's dad has an old college friend visit. Comic gold.
