Sketchbook スケッチブック Scanlation

I posted about the Sketchbook Full Colors anime last week and the description is pretty much the same but the four panel manga by mangaka Totan Kobako isn’t as finely focused on Sora as the anime is. In the manga Sora is still the main character but she doesn’t appear in each four panel this won’t be apparent in the first chapter as she is the major focus later chapters introduce more of the characters and then the story revolves around the art club students and teacher. Here’s the scanlation for the first chapter. Give it a try and see if its slice of life style suits your taste. Fans of Hidamari Sketch or the funnier Azumanga Daioh will probably enjoy this.

Download the first five chapters of the manga scanlation here.

If I could choose any Japanese item to be licensed in English, it would be the Sketchbook manga.

I <3 it big time.
