Kumabachi no Koto (くまばちのこと) / The Thing About Bees

Manga-ka: Ashinano Hitoshi

Genre: Fantasy, Seinen, Slice of Life

A girl finds a strange tiny man riding a bee.

Published as a one-shot in Afternoon by Kodansha


Finally, my busy days are almost coming to an end! As usual, it’s been a pretty hectic week for me with not much rest even for the weekend. Still, my internship period is almost over after which I can go into temporary NEET mode for about a week XD

After all the rushing around, I decided to choose a super calming one-shot for this weekend. I suppose the whole ‘bee’ theme baited me – I really do love bees. Even if they sting me I don’t kill them. But in the end they die anyway and it makes me very sad =(

Kumabachi no Koto is only about 20 pages long, but those 20 pages have this amazingly therapeutic effect. It’s just about a girl meeting a small man, but everything from the progression of the story to the dialogue just had a special something that just really relaxed me. It’s one of those ‘special encounters’ sort of story, but done in a very simple manner. A small spice in your everyday life, if you will.

Well now. Time to get my carrot cakes out of the oven =3

Have a nice weekend!
