I had recently come across on of the cutest, funniest mangas ever!! It's by Kiyohiko Azuma and was called, "Yotsuba&!" You can probably find it in your local bookstore where you can buy manga. If you live in BORING Bako, then head to Borders on Stockdale.
Yotsubato! (Yotsuba&! in English) is the story of an odd, quirky little girl that's about 6, named Yotsuba. She and her father have just moved into a new house with the help of her father's very tall friend, Jumbo. Yotsuba meets her neighbors, the Ayase family, who of course, think Yotsuba's odd acting. Yotsuba doesn't seem to understand or know about things you'd think children her age would know about, like playground swings, air-conditioning, and doorbells.
At first I thought it was going to be one of those typical children's manga. The art wasn't fancy and was very simple. I had seen Kiyohiko Azuma's other anime the what's it called? Azumanga-Daioh? Or something like that...Needless to say I didn't like it much and thought it very ODD.
I opened "Yotsuba&!" and found myself laughing out loud and being able to relate to most of the characters. I have to ask first for some manga snipets I've found so it might be awhile. But I'll try and post as soon as possible! ^__^ I hope you guys look more into the series.
