Summary:

Shinobu Asakura has struggled to find a place where he fits. More accurately, he’s struggled to hold down a job. He blames this on his inability to read. When a prospective boss points out that he might be dyslexic, Shinobu realizes that he might have been too harsh on himself.

Having a name for his condition may not magically fix the world for him – but it can empower him to find new ways to navigate the world. He just has to try. Hopefully, he’s found just the person to help guide him.

Review:

Oh wow. I went into My Wonderful World, Vol. 1not knowing anything about it (I like the occasional surprise, so going in knowing nothing can be fun), and wow! I was blown away. Poor Shinobu. It’s easy to empathize with this protagonist and all of his struggles.

It’s even easier to root for him! I loved seeing that light-bulb moment in his life. While it may seem like a relatively minor moment, it’s perfect for a slice-of-life series. Shinobu is the perfect character for this journey.

Overall, this first volume did a great job of summing up what dyslexia is, alongside what it may feel like to go through such a journey. It’s great to see more representative stories popping up, and I can’t wait to see more!

Highlights:

  • Slice of life
  • Dyslexic main character

Thanks to Kodansha and #NetGalley for making this book available for review. All opinions expressed are my own.
