5.0 out of 5 stars Charming and outstanding manga! 3 Nov 2013
By Anthony Gonzalez - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This manga packs great sensibility and psychological depth through the most challenging of characterizations: that of grade school children. The narrative is very sincere and logical. This is an outstanding manga that is appropriate for any age.
5.0 out of 5 stars Best of the first four volumes 5 July 2013
By M. Vittes - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I consider this to be the best of the first four volumes (these volumes correspond to the elementary school years). In this volume, we see Shuichi and Maho audition together to become models (at Maho's insistence) and get accepted. Maho sets up a boy in her class, Riku Seya, on dates with Shuichi, but with Shuichi dressed as a girl and lying about her identity! A pair of bullies steal Shuichi and Takatsuki-kun's exchange diary while at school. And a new character is introduced who has some things in common with Shuichi. All these story arcs proceed through this volume and make for an entertaining and highly engaging read.
5.0 out of 5 stars Superior storytelling and art 16 April 2013
By MLE - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
This was my favorite volume so far. It did such a good job making me remember what junior high was like, with the awkwardness, fights between friends, and the sense that no one understands you. I knew how hard it was for me, and I can't even imagine how much harder it must be for kids like Shuichi and Yoshino. I really liked Shuichi's new friend, and the insights that friend was able to provide were really interesting, and their sense of humor and perspective were priceless. It was nice seeing Shuichi's sister growing in her understanding of Shuichi, and I was proud when she bit back the nasty words she almost said. I have a feeling that things are only going to get harder for both Shuichi and Yoshino from here, but I am heartened to see that they have people in their lives who I have a strong feeling will stand by them. The artwork, and the story telling continue to be among the best of any graphic novel I've ever read, and the senseitvity of the author gives these characters such life, and humanity.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wandering Son vol. 3 13 Sep 2012
By K. Hugo - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The artwork was simple and clean and the storyline progressed with an unexpected turn. It was poignant and thought provoking and gave a very interesting viewpoint as to a young transgender's first crush and subsequent date. All in all, it was a very beautiful book and an excellent read. I highly recommend this series.
