Manga Bookshelf Review: Honey and Clover, vol. 8
I've got a new guest review up at Manga Bookshelf, a great manga blog by Melinda Beasi. This time around, I take a look at Honey and Clover, vol. 8. Here's a peek at what I thought:
Love triangles abound in this slapstick-happy manga that mixes comedy with a wistful thoughtfulness that can only be indulged in while attending college. ... This is another well done volume, with an overarching theme of how we try to help one another through pain of one kind or another – whether it’s the pain of the hiccups, pain from love or the pain of living, each of the characters in this volume are trying to help one another in some way.
