When you've been trying to finish a very serious book and you haven't read for quite some time now, a kawaii (cute) graphic novel is a good way to take your mind off things. Miho Asada's Disney Manga - Stitch Best Friends Forever! is such an adorable read. It's short, sweet, and entertaining. I found myself smiling and laughing with some of the conversations between Stitch and the other protagonist, Yuna, and even their misadventures.

Stitch is such a fan character that you won't be able to get enough of him. I love how he's still unaccustomed to some of the most mundane things we, humans, do. It triggers his curiosity and he will always find a way to learn or try it. If it leads to disaster, he will damn sure make up for it. What a cutie! It's also nice to see familiar faces like Jumba and Pleakley. It made me miss the movie and the series. You might be wondering where Lilo is. Unfortunately, she's not in the manga. I know it feels like it won't be complete without her but thank God Yuna is there to fill in the gap. She's gentle, she loves the sea, and she is a good friend to Stitch.

Plot wise, I was expecting one whole story but this manga actually holds short stories for the readers to enjoy. You can see how Stitch's character will progress while adjusting in a new world and culture. Plus it can be shared and enjoyed by children and kids' at heart. Overall, it's a nice addition to your growing manga collection or a good starter for first-timers.
