MangaCast Review: Honey and Clover, vol. 4
Head over to MangaCast to read my review of Honey and Clover, vol. 4. I love this underappreciated josei series and will review the series in its entirety for i ♥ manga sometime in the near future. For those unfamiliar with MangaCast, it's a website about all things manga, and features news, reviews and rankings from Japan and the U.S.
Here's an excerpt from my review:
With Morita in the U.S., the gang find themselves wondering just what he’s up to out there (with some hilariously illustrated examples between each chapter). Summer clips along, with Hagu possessed by and absorbed in her work, Takemoto wondering if he wants Morita to ever come back and the same old romantic entanglements between Ayu and Mayama...Honey and Clover is a goofy, yet touching, story examining the romantic entanglements between a group of friends at a local small arts college. It’s about living, loving and growing up when you’re not even sure what "growing up" means.
If you haven't read Honey and Clover just yet, I hope my review will encourage you to get started on it soon! Honey and Clover is available in the U.S. from Viz.
