A really good manga....

I'm imagining that younger readers will probably not like this one. If you're over 30 and if you grew up in the countryside, listening to stories from "the old days", you'll find this series a very pleasant and nostalgic read. Granny is funny, unpredictable and really good at making ends meet. Akihiro is very different from today's spoiled kids and though he wants what his better-off friends have, he realizes that material possessions are not always necessary for happiness in life. It's a really great slice of life story, making me think how much people's lives and attitudes have changed in only 50 years. I've so far read the first two volumes in French and can't wait for the rest to arrive.
