If you don't care to know anything about Japanese rural life...

...then don't bother with this manga. It's basically a series of episodes from the day-to-day of a farming village in a secluded corner of Japan that details how the people there cultivate, prepare and eat food, through the eyes of a very independent young country woman. Since the villagers produce the majority of the ingredients themselves from scratch, as a city girl who's barely even been to a village in her own country I found myself very much entertained by the descriptions of vegetable growing, paddy farming, fruit harvesting, fish/meat preparation, etc. It was nicely written and illustrated; the mangaka obviously has a good deal of experience on the subject.

There's also an underlying existential theme and a strong respect for - and understanding of - nature, which provided a thematic link between the stand-alone chapters that I very much appreciated.

And as for the comment below mine which actually dares to compare Igarashi Daisuke's magnificent and unusual art style to "something a 5-year-old could draw," well, I have nothing to say except: roll laugh

Nothing happens in this manga but people making food in a very superficial way.
Each "story" makes me cut myself to make it end quicker.
I'm not one to complain about drawing but if there's no story I can't help it, this is something a 5yo could draw.

Zero value.
Zero quality.
Zero enjoyment.

Having just read and been captivated by Majo (魔女, Witches) by the same author, but being underwhelmed by the description of Little Forest, I thought I'd glance over the latter's first chapter before moving on to something else. While Little Forest wasn't as mind-blowingly stunning to me as Majo was, before I knew it I'd gone through all available chapters, and all I wanted was to do is eat mochi while reading more about the world view of the protagonist.

I will absolutely read any other chapters I can get my virtual or actual hands on.
