Kona’s Manga: Flat
June 27, 2010
So I thought I should tell our nonexistant readers about some of the manga we read, so here is the very first manga from Kona’s collection, the wonderful manga, flat.
It’s the story of Heisuke and his little cousin Aki. Heisuke is a rather irresponsible, rather selfish young man with a certain love for making sweets. Aki is a small, shy, reserved boy, who goes out of his way to not cause trouble to others. So they’re pretty much opposites, but they begin to like each other after Heisuke babysits Aki one day. Aki begins to open up to Heisuke (the sweets help) and Heisuke slowly begins to show him that its ok to want something, it’s ok to have fun, and it’s ok to be a little selfish. Heisuke also begins to change from the selfish, irresponsible teenager, to a more caring person (even if it is mostly with Aki) It’s a sweet story, and the art is simple and wonderful.It’s a wonderful manga, and something fans of Yotsuba and Aishiteruze Baby will enjoy. I give it my seal of approval, and I highly recommend it.
