The only manga that manages to make me grin like an idiot throughout the entire read.

The mangaka captures the "magic" of daily routine in such a simple, yet fascinating way that it's simply fun to read. The passion for the smallest details, as well as the characters, are also incredible.
Oh, did I mention how much I love the drawing style?

It's nothing breath-taking, but it doesn't need to be anyway.
It's one of those works, that gives you a warm & fuzzy feeling and that's exactly what anyone needs from time to time.

This manga is amazing! It's funny, cute, adorable and amazing in every way.

The art is funny, quirky, expressive. The story is cute, realistic, and heartwarming.

Worth every second reading. I would love to buy the whole collection.

I love this manga, to me it is a timeless series that is, and always shall be, amazing. Okay, I know it's a comedy and all but honestly it's a great series for all the ages. It's about a little girl named Yotsuba who, through a series of hilarious circumstances, always manages to find herself in some kind of trouble, whether it involves her running off by herself or ,to later, running away from the very neighbors who offered to help and find her. She also ends up meeting a very colorful cast of characters who you will find yourself becoming very attached to over the course of the series. The main reason you like these characters, and my favorite part of this series, is how realistic these characters are. I mean I can honestly see this all happening in the real world, and no I dont mean all the specifics but the antics and the overall personality of the characters is very realistic and believable. Especially that of our main character, Yotsuba, she is a really great representation of what a child is really like with her naive nature, curiousness, and sometimes unknowingly selfish attitude, she represents what the common everyday child is like, no shes not perfect, but she's not meant to be, and I think the fact that the author could express this so well is a true testimony to how good this manga truly is. Now there is a lot more involved but since I dont want to spoil anything I think I will leave it off here. So in conclusion I recommend this series to anyone, manga lover or not, to give a try and I guarantee you wont be disappointed.

BUT PRAISE. It's not really a question of whether its funny or adorable or whether you should try it. That would be a dumb question... a no brainer.

Any criticism? There's a few more gals than guys, the guy was coming off a story with mostly girls. Though the writer makes use of all of them and makes them all likeable. With the way japan's industry is, a darker mind might not think of it as having her interact with a girl in each age range(a mom, an older sister type, and someone closer to her age makes sense, but there's double that).

And while this manga is funny, and gives you warm fuzzies... well that's it, that's what it gives you, and not more. It does it well. Better than most, without whoring its characters.

Yotsubato is a feel good manga, it's one of those that uplifts you either by being funny or reminding you that life has nice moments in it. It also just works as a humour mag, as long as you don't mind a lack of salacious or dirty humour. You won't miss it while reading this.

It's such a nice thing to read, you feel easy and calm , and Yotsuba is so cute! And the side character are awesome too, Yanda, Jambo, Dad (who is such a cute dad, does all kind of weird things with Yotsuba) and the neighbousr are awesome too. (And Danbo, Awww!)

One of the _very_ few manga I can't wait to read the next release of.
It's simply timeless and brilliant... and keeps being so even after 10 volumes of goodness.
Pure childlike innocence brought in a funny and natural way, something for all ages and many situations/escapades of the 5 year old should be recognisable by all.

This proofs a GREAT series doesn't require drama or needless violence.

Without being overdone, just believable and cute quirkiness.

Lack drama but it's actually a good thing, the only negative of this manga is the slow release.

There's nothing to add, this is one of the best mangas ever ! I took it up on a whim cause i was bored, and i was stuck on it from the first chapter up to the last published.
One thing i have to say : don't miss trying it. I don't thin you could possibly dislike it no metter what genres you usually read. It is too alien to be categorized, it is apart from the rest.

yotsuba never stops to amaze me, even while she is doing simple things, everything she did make me smile, so I hope you people who has't read this manga will give it a try, you'll get hooked, guaranteed!

So you read manga, at least you tell yourself you do, and haven't read Yotsubato! yet, well you do it now, no review can do this series justice, you be your own judge and read it, a must for any who have been reading manga for a while (or for the novice, it's a good ride either way).
