My Thoughts:

Another great volume. Yotsuba meets her nemesis, Yanda for the first time. While he’s supposed to be a working man, he reacts to Yotsuba at her level. A grown man acting like a 5 year old is amusing for a chapter. Azuma, the manga-ka, realizes when enough is enough and doesn’t try to push it more than that one chapter though. Smart man.

The first chapter deals with Ena and Eimura (neighbor girls) doing a class project where they are creating a robot creature out of cardboard. Yotsuba barges in on them and thinks that Eimura is a real robot. I’ve included the picture that made me laugh the hardest in the volume.

The rest of the chapters were light hearted and fuzzily warm. Perfect to read on a day when it is snowing outside. I have to admit, I am (almost) surprised at just how well this series is standing up to a re-read. Sometimes something is cute because it is new. This is genuinely cute and continues to be so.

Rating: 5 out of 5.

            1. After the last couple of no-go’s for manga (Oh My Goddess, Shaman King, Kare Kano), I’m feeling extremely un-adventurous and don’t want to get into something I might not like. Thankfully, I’ve got a couple of months to find a solution 😀
