Description
Takeuchi Sachiko's Honey & Honey is a realistic look at an adult lesbian couple living in Japan; to be precise, it's autobiographical. The artwork is rough, but hopefully the plot (and the information the manga imparts) will be enough compensation for those who don't like that style of drawing. The first chapter introduces the two main characters, Sachiko and Masako, and depicts their first meeting.

Note: Won the DaVinci Petit-Grand Prize for Comic Essays.

The best and most dignified portrait of homosexuality i ever saw in a manga   
Rating: 8.5 / 10.0

Japanese media usually fails me in the presentation of meaningful homosexuality but rarely a manga with such tags succeed to capture my attention. A lot of these are good in therms of narrative quality and not realism but this one did both ! The story is about two women and even if chapters are about the reality of living a (public) homosexual life in modern japan the focus is the slice of life aspect. This is a story about love and life first and not a about representing something or someone but the biographical and educational aspect are still top notch.
Some may have problems with the art style but i don´t. It looks very independent and while it doesn´t quite befit a japanese publication connoisseurs of international comics should dig it. While this is the highest rating i have given to story with one of the 4 "gay tags" on display or to a manga about LGBT themes i won´t go higher as superior international offerings like Alison Bechdel´s (yes that one) comic Fun Home: A Family Tragicomic exist and are the bar to be measured against. Let´s not forget Kevin Keller from Archie Comics while i am at it. Him i love too.

Educational: ★★★★ - solely educational/ highly instructive
The manga managed to teach me for example how the in japan officially nonexistent gay marriage can still "technically" be achieved, how gay pride is preceved by society and how it is executed. Furter how the transgender community in japan functions and last but not least what one can buy on amazon. Hint hint it´s sex toys but this is a good subject to adress in light of what the manga is about and this newfound knowledge even amused my co-workers to endless degrees when we looked up such reviews on amazon at work but i am getting off track.
All in all every question i had about homosexuality in japan was answered to my full satisfaction and i had the feeling that i understood what makes the author tick and what made her write this award winning biography.
Recommended to every international reader over the age of 12. Could someone please translate her other (biographical)manga as i feel that we are getting robbed of something meaningful and rare.

Sooooo cute. And realistic. The art suits the manga perfectly. I shed some tears at the end, I didn't want them to break up, but that's real world for ya. Oh my god :(

Such a fun series! It's sweet, incredibly relatable, and hilarious. I think if you go in to it thinking more webcomic or 4-koma and less typical manga you won't be put off by the art style. It is different, but this isn't about the art, it's about the people. This is one of the few gl series I've read which weren't annoying to me. It is real and so so much of it rings extremely true. Love!

Fantastically cute and funny.
I also learned some new stuff reading this, too! -laughes-
The art is adorable and I like how she tells these anecdotes and stories that tie in with each particular theme.

When the first chapter was released, I was like wat horrible art but then, I noticed the daily humour in it. I now thnk the art suits the humour n lightness of the manga as well as giving an real view of adult lesbian couple, one of my fave yuri series biggrin..It also clarifies a lot of things as well as make me nod in agreement..

Sweet, adorable and sublime. This is truly worth a read and heck... it's refreshing and interesting, compared to quite a bit of shoujo-ai/yuri I've encountered which're often chock full of stereotypes and obviously have been written by and intended for straight males/females. Stereotypes like how all lesbians are man-haters and must have been raped or treated poorly by males so they turned to females. Or how all straight males are brainless buffoons. Or how all best friends must turn gay and so forth. Thank goodness Honey & Honey is short on that and full of slice of life humor and lovin'.

The art may or may not be your style but I find it adds to the experience and style than detract from it. After all, I'm not sure how stylish and distinctive Honey & Honey would have been if it was full of shoujo sparklies and typical screentones.

It's always fun to find something interesting once in a while. And this is it.
