Tomihero's Sakuragumi is a slice of life doujin manga about Middle School Students. Volume 2 continues with more of the same stuff from volume 1 and also introduces some new characters including Yamada Sensei (whom is depressed she didn't get the new Dragon Qu*st).

Most of the stuff that was good about the 1st volume is back in the second. The art is very good, the characters are endearing and the dialogue is clever and entertaining. From Aruru's "Tsundere" personality to Yuuta's complete lack of masculinity; you'll definitely be very engaged by the great characters.
The only real problem I found with this is that it wasn't quite as entertaining as the first volume. Nonetheless that doesn't mean it was bad; just not as good as its excellent predecessor. Either way I loved reading this though.

In conclusion I'd recommend the Sakura-Gumi series to anyone whose looking for a fun and easy to read Slice of Life manga.

Part 2 of Oota Minoru's Yuro Fantasy continues the story Yuro, Fan, Reia and the others with more funny 4-coma comics.
This volume introduces some new characters including the Half-Elf Jenny (whom speaks in Kansai-ben), Yuro's "rival" Ruvi and the spirit of Yuro's Sword, Guillotine Kaizer (whom bears an uncanny resemblance to a certain enemy of Gamera...).

In any case everything that was good about volume 1 is back again. The art is downright amazing, the characters are entertaining, the writing is clever, etc.... I honestly can't think of anything bad to say about this Doujin; I only wish it was longer.

Overall I'd recommend this series to anyone who wants to read a funny 4-coma. There are only 2 out so far here on DL site but I believe the author has written others (judging from his site) so hopefully they will be added to DL site eventually.

Pickup!A Good Slice of Life Manga

Tomihero's Sakura-Gumi is a Slice of Life manga about the lives of middle school students Aruru, Ruchan and Yuuta. This first volume introduces the characters and tells a cute little story about Aruru adopting a stray cat.

The art in Sakura-Gumi is very good and looks as good as (or even better than) most regular commercial/serialized manga.
The Characters are all entertaining and fall under the usual slice of life manga cliche character types (Aruru is a Tsundere etc...).

One big bonus as well is that nearly all the kanji are given furigana so this should be quite easy to read even for those still learning the Japanese language

Overall I'd highly recommend Sakura-Gumi. There are 5 volumes in total and seeing how good this one was I definitely plan to eventually pick up the rest.

A Cute Slice of Life Doujin Manga

Now Loading! Ep. 1 - Odekake Summer

How about a nice manga about girls who love gaming?

KumaRider's "Now Loading...!" is a Slice of Life story about 4 girls (Mizuki, Mai, Kurumi, and Tomo) who enjoy gaming and are in what I assume is a gaming club at school (though this is never directly stated). In the first chapter, Odekake Summer, Mizuki is bored and tries to convince the other girls to go outside and do something (since it's summer).

Anyway the art in "Now Loading...!" is quite good and the character designs are all cute.
Although this is only the first chapter, the characters still all have clear personalities (for example Mizuki is hyper and Mai is somewhat tsundere).
The story and dialogue is something I'd expect from a Slice of Life style manga and is pretty entertaining. For those just learning Japanese, most of the kanji aren't too hard though there may be a few those new to the language might have some trouble with.

Lastly I should mention that in addition to the first chapter, the PDF also include a bonus 2 pages of 4-coma comics. These are quite entertaining.

In any case Now Loading..! is quite good so far and I would highly recommend this to anyone who likes slice of life manga.

A Cute and Entertaining Parody of Fantasy Tropes

First in a series of 2 (so far) by Doujin artist Oota Minoru, Yuro Fantasy 1 is a 4-coma Manga about a girl named Yuro who wishes to become a Magic User but is forced to become a Hero because her father and descendants were all heroes as well. Readers will also be introduced to other characters including Yuro's best friend Fan, Fan's older brother Earth and the magic user Reia.

The art is very good and the character designs are all incredibly cute. Moving on, the dialogue is quite funny and entertaining. In addition the level of kanji used is pretty easy so those just learning Japanese shouldn't have too much trouble.

Probably the only problem with this doujin is the length (only 20 pages), though considering its relatively low price and the high overall quality this isn't that big of an issue.

In any case if you are looking for a good Doujin with cute characters and funny dialogue, Yuro Fantasy is definitely worth purchasing.
