Read full description of the books Honey and Clover, Vol. 2:I mentioned in my review of volume one that I was confused as to what the main storyline of this manga series is... and from volume 2, I'd guess it's really nothing? It seems what this series is all about is just the development of the characters and their love interests. I'm not sure if this is an accurate assumption, it is only what the volumes have shown me thus far.
Hagu is a cute character...but I am still slightly disturbed by her... in this volume she's 19... still looks and acts like an 8 year old though. Still slightly concerned that Morita and Takemoto have a thing for her...
I was happy with the sudden appearance of Yamada all the time now. Now SHE is a character I can like. I love girls like her that kick butt! And of course, underneath that tough exterior is the dark abyss of a broken heart, but she makes for an interesting character.
I don't dislike this series, but I also don't love it. It's interesting enough to keep me reading, but sometimes I feel like the manga-ka is trying waaay too hard to be silly and outrageous. There were a lot of moments in this volume that were meant to be funny but I just felt like it was so obviously a point to get laughs that it wasn't even funny. Don't get me wrong, those crazy, silly, outrageous moments are one of the main reasons I love manga....but sometimes in this manga it doesn't seem natural, it seems like the manga-ka was just trying too hard. Which is unfortunate.
On to volume 3!
Read information about the authorChica Umino (羽海野チカ, Umino Chika) is a manga-ka (comic artist/cartoonist) who was born in Tokyo, Japan. She began work as a product designer and illustrator. Her most notable work to date is her 'beloved' Honey and Clover, a 'slice of life' manga series which debuted in 2000 in Shueisha's manga magazine, CUTiEcomic.
Umino has a unique drawing style, listing Studio Ghibli amongst her influences, and her characters are remarkably well-developed.
It is very rare for a manga-ka to use his or her real name, and Chica Umino is a pen-name. In keeping with the trend for using something special to the individual in developing a pen-name, Umino's is styled after the name of an amusement park by the sea.
Her work has become popular overseas (America), having already become very popular in Japan, with Honey and Clover winning the Kodansha Manga Award in 2003 and nominated for the Tezuka Culture Prize and an award from the Japan Media Arts Festival.
The enduring popularity of the series has seen it adapted into an animated television series in 2005, a live-action movie in 2006 and two individual live-action television dramas in 2008.
One of her most recent works is Sangatsu no Lion, or March Comes in Like a Lion, which began serialization in 2007, a manga about the game of shogi, which features Umino's distinctive art style. Umino has also provided the illustration for the 2009 anime series Eden of the East by Kenji Kamiyama, as well as 'Tobira o Akete' and the Glass Heart series, including 'Boukensha-tachi', 'Netsu no Shiro' and 'Love Way'.
