Ayase: Yotsuba's neighbor and the middle daughter. She is in High School, incredibly polite and helpful, and often left to take care of Yotsuba in some way or another. Asagi: Ayase's older sister, in College and very pretty.
She's a bit more twisted and prone to teasing Yotsuba without Yotsuba understanding that she's being teased. However, you can tell she has a true affection for the girl and is overall very kind to Yotsuba. Ena: Ayase's youngest sister, she often plays with Yotsuba and is very kind and tolerant as well. Quality of Writing:The writing really works wonders on making Yotsuba both really likable and really childlike. These are quick, entertaining reads Ending:This is the first in a series of I am not sure how many Each chapter is Yotsuba discovering a new thing This continues through the entire book, each chapter not directly connected to the chapter before it.
I think this helps to make it more childlike and cute Plot:It's a simple plot revolving around each chapter having us follow Yotsuba discovering something new. Her story is progressed just in so far as she is slowly learning about the world around her Truthfully, I picked this series up because I saw so many people on the internet raving about it, and wanted to know what the deal was. What I didn't realize, until after I'd finished this first volume, was that it is by the creator of Azumanga Daioh Nothing happened, it was just a bunch of girls running around being dumb These characters have an endearing, honest quality, and are genuinely funny.
However, if you're looking for an intensely deep plot with layers and layers of meaning It truly is VERY light-hearted. The characters are adorable,.
