One Shot for the Weekend – Sunny Spots Typhoon

Title: Empty Boy/Kara No Shounen: Sunny Spots Typhoon

Author: Fujitsuka Yuki 

Artist: Fujitsuka Yuki

Genre: Drama, Romance, School Life, Shoujo, Slice of Life

Summary: Kusakabe Kaoru is the prince of the school that all the girls want. But he has a secret that he doesn’t want any one: Since his mom’s death he’s been a house-husband and takes care of his three younger siblings and dad.

Collected in a tankōbon of one-shots by Fujitsuka Yuki.


A very sweet and touching story that brings the reader’s attention to hardship, family values and ultimately to be appreciative of our lives. It flows with an easy-going and lighthearted pace which encourages the reader to smile in appreciation rather than be bogged down by its themes – themes that are often presented in a depressing manner in other similar mangas. I’ve read quite a few  stories that share the main plot of Sunny Spots Typhoon, but in this case it’s executed beautifully.

Overall Rating: 4.7/5
