Review: Recorder and Randsell Vol. 1 by Meme Higashiya


Synopsis: Miyagawa Atsumi and her younger brother Atsushi are your typical siblings – she’s a high school sophomore dealing with exams, he’s a 5th grader who only wants to run off and play with his friends. School’s hard enough as it is, but things are even tougher for these two: Atsumi is so tiny she’s still mistaken for a little kid, while Atsushi is so tall people assume he’s a full-grown man!

Thoughts, and would I recommend?

Thank you Netgalley for providing me with a copy for review!

Oh, it’s been too long since I’ve read a manga, and especially a 4 panel manga! Recorder and Randsell is a perfect manga to read on a phone or tablet during a long commute, or to sit down and read when you need. It’s laugh out loud funny, with a 5th grade boy who looks like a fully grown adult man and his older sister who looks like she should be in grade school! The art style is very cute, and fits the genre of this manga. I picked this up expecting a full manga, but in this case, the 4-panel one shot comics are perfect! The humor is perfect, and honestly, I can relate with this book a little, as I’m a senior in high school, but I’m short with a baby face. Some of the comics, especially the one when Atsumi, the sister, opens the door to respond to a solicitor and is mistaken for a child. Happens all the time to me! I highly recommend this manga for anyone who needs a quick laugh!
