What is Yuzumori-san?

Yuzumori-san is a manga written and illustrated by Ejima Eri. A subtle love story between good-for-nothing Mimika and calm, collected Yuzumori, the series ran in Shogakukan’s free manga site Yawarakai Spirits from June 2016 to March 2018.

Yuzumori Kaede, the protagonist and title character of the manga, is a fourth grader who is unexpectedly cool-headed but also has a jealous side.

The other protagonist of the series is Noma Mimika, a second year in high school. Unlike Yuzumori, she is a bit of a mess and also has a stubborn streak. Even though Yuzumori is younger than her, she still uses honorifics with her.

Even though Yuzumori-san ended this past March, the series will live on among fans.
