Sunny (Vol. 4)
It's been a while since I read the last volume to this series, but I fell right into place as soon as I started this 4th volume. This is the most literary manga I've ever read and I find the story so painfully poignant. This volume has each chapter centre on a child who has to deal with the reality that their parent is a failure and either not coming back for them or if they do, it will never be permanent. These are all sad stories with one being particularly heart-breaking, but the children themselves are resilient, wise and retain their humour as children are often wont to do. Truly a lovely touching series.
