Mimoto’s family diary

MIMOTO Hanna[Japan]


Mrs. MIMOTO lives in Kansai with her three kids. Her daughter Kei is the eldest (and strangest). Fumi is the middle child and does everything her own way, thanks-very-much. Fainthearted Yuki is the eldest son. And the ever hapless Mr. MIMOTO makes five. Illustrations of the family’s daily life wittily depict parents growing up alongside their children. The manga was serialized after the artist’s cartoons based on real life became Instagram-famous.
