After a 20-month hiatus during which the future of the series in English was uncertain, ADV Manga has finally released a new volume of Azuma's (Azumanga Daioh) winning manga comedy, of which Vol. 1 made LJ's Best Graphic Novels of 2005 list (LJ 1/06). This series focuses on the day-to-day life of Yotsuba, an independent and enthusiastic but naive six-year-old girl, as she tries to make sense of her world with the help of friends, neighbors, and her easygoing adoptive father. In this volume, she demonstrates her secret badminton technique, goes fishing and grocery shopping, and even starts her own newspaper. Yotsuba can be the quintessential kid who says the darndest things, as when she clumsily tries to cheer up middle-sister-next-door Fuka, who's been disappointed in love. But the series also has real heart and an appealing whimsy, shown here when Yotsuba acts out a dream she has about the ending of summer. And part of its charm is that some of the people around Yotsuba aren't afraid to mess with her head a little bit, all in fun. The appeal of this series ranges across genders and age groups, and it remains highly recommended for all libraries.-S.R. Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.
