Wolf Children: Ame & Yuki

Hello lovelies!

Now, I don’t usually review mangas. Perhaps that’s because – even though I like them – I don’t read them a lot. Or their not the “typical” book. I dunno. But I don’t usually.

But at current, I haven’t finished many new books (I’m reading some monster tomes + rereading faves) to review … so here we are.

Today I am reviewing a beautiful and stunning manga, Wolf Children: Ame and Yuki by Mamoru Hosoda with artwork by Yu. This was originally an anime, but was adapted to manga for just a few years ago … so that’s cool.

But yeah, enjoy!

I was strolling around my library. You know, like one does. Anyways. I saw the spine of Wolf Children and it instantly attracted me. It was pastel colors and thicc (600ish pages) and I was immediately in love.

I read this in less than two hours, which  actually surprised me. There are many, many panels … but not many words. I guess that’s why it flew by.

But anyways. What really struck with me was the artwork. It’s just so … so gorgeous. Very soft and empathetic, if you can understand what I mean.

It was generally lacking in the story, however. It jumps over the span of approx thirteen years, I believe. What was odd was how it would follow the family for a long time over a couple days/months, and then completely skip two or three years.

However, in grain with that, it was easy to follow along with and I never felt lost (a common problem with me and mangas/comics). Loved that!

Other than that, there just really wasn’t all that much holding it together, story-wise.

The characters, however, I really liked. I wish that Hana’s personality had been more … prominent throughout the manga? Yuki is technically our narrator, and I liked her a lot. She reminded me of Tsubaki from Your Lie in April (another good manga to read). Ame, however, was my favorite. His character development was sudden, but natural. He was quiet, but fierce. I loved him.

And overall, the story is just sweet. Teaching on family bonds and finding who you are meant to be.

So! Does anyone have any good manga (or even comic) recommendations for me? I’d love to hear them! Have you read Wolf Children? Or what about the movie? Let me know all of your thoughts! Love ya!

    1. I knowww! Your Lie in April made me cry and stay up until three or four in the morning watching it (and I worked at eight the next morning)… Oops!

      I’ve only read a couple mangas and comics, but I really like them! Sometimes they’re hard to follow, though…
