Description
Sketchbook revolves around a group of high school students who are members of the art club at their school. The plot follows a slice-of-life style via the students' experiences at school through the club. The main character is a shy, quiet girl named Sora Kajiwara who goes through life at her own pace. She tends to look at the little things in life, and is often in awe of the simpler things. Sora knows several stray cats around her town and has given them names.

A very ordinary atmosphere...

Sketchbook is definitely not for everyone. It is one of those slice-of-life 4-komas that rely on everyday situations and likable characters. If you're looking for action or comedy, then Sketchbook is not for you. There are funny moments, certainly, but the majority of funny moments consist of the reader going, "Oh man, I've done the exact same thing." Not really a laugh-out-loud moment, but more of a chuckle-at-self moment.

On that note, I do believe that Sketchbook succeeds at what it sets out to do. It has an enormous cast, and it doesn't shirk away from introducing new characters even 100 chapters in. And, while, to be honest, I don't remember everyone's name, I do remember all of their faces and personalities. They're all likable and unique enough to be memorable, all the while not being too over-the-top.

Overall, in terms of slice-of-life, I find this manga the most relatable, and it is definitely one of my personal favorites. Nothing exciting really ever happens, but I think that's part of the beauty of Sketchbook.

i guess the mangaka trying to build atmosphere around characters and situations they're involved in. as far as i've read, we can catch that quite easily. however, once the air is captured and understood, no further enjoyment felt. not heart-warming, not laugh-inciting, not so fun.

Quite a mixed bag. Sketchbook is a observational humour based yonkoma manga. I found that sometimes the humour hits home and sometimes it doesn't. The same can be said for the art as I find that it can vary a bit in quality and effectiveness.

In the end I wouldn't say it's a great manga, but it definitely has it's moments and may yet grow on me. The anime version of the series is one of my favourites.
