At long last, the next volume of Yotsuba& has been released under a new publisher, after the demise of ADV Manga. Yotsuba&, Volume 6 continues the slice of life hijinks of Yotsuba with her child like innocence and fun of life, with hilarious results.Compared to the volumes released under ADV Manga, Yen Press seems to release a higher quality publication on better quality paper with a more faithful translation, as some of the puns are explained in their Japanese context (as opposed to ADV Manga, which would try to 'Americanize' it and write themselves into a corner when that same pun comes back at a later volume under a different context). Although the simple cover art had me worried at first, once I started reading the volume, I found the story to be as engaging as before.Overall, it's good to see this series continued, as it would have been a shame to see it relegated to publication limbo. For those who are not familiar with the series, it's probably best to start from the beginning, though due to the slice of life nature of this series, it doesn't hurt to try this volume first. You just won't get as much of the humor out of it, as opposed to having read everything before.I can't wait for the next volume to be published.
