An adorable little manga drawn in a somewhat American-cartoon-esque style, Cowa! has a simple, linear plot with a predictable outcome -- but it still manages to be heartwarming and delightful. The interactions between Maruyama and the monster kids were especially memorable; the small chapter about the violent monster who protects his little forest from human intrusion was surprisingly touching.

A highly recommended read if you're tired of the typical themes of sex, violence, and angsty melodrama, and are in the mood for something cute and childlike.

I started reading Cowa! because I was bored and had a headache. I wanted something easy on the brain. But after the first couple chapters, I realized that Cowa! is not simply based on kid-monster cuteness.

I loved the interaction between the monster & human communities, the dishonest act of determination that leads to new vistas & new friendships, and the ending was PERFECT, except I could have read more about that little universe and its characters.

I almost gave it a 9 because I hate to give out only 10s, but that's a stupid reason to slight such an enjoyable series. I reread it the day after my headache went away and I plan to reread it again, so in its own quirky, amusing, and heart-warming way, it earns a 10.

Edit, April 17th 2010:

Bad stomach flu + reading Cowa! yet again = endorphins fighting the virus in my bloodstream. Gotta love the power of Cowa!

I don't really like anything Toriyama has done after Dragon Ball's Red Ribbon saga, but among all these Cowa! is by far my favorite. A mature, charming work of an author "descending the slope", it's a nice reading.
