    Noramimi
    By: HARA Kazuo
    Genre: Comedy, Fantasy, Slice of Life
    Serialized In: IKKI
    Mangaupdates

    In the Noramimi universe, most families own a 'mascot'. These strange and amusing creatures live at home and act as companions for younger children.

    Noramimi is one such mascot. Unfortunately for him, he is an ogre type and thus not popular with
    children, who prefer 'cuter' alternatives. Unwillingly, he decides to 'home stay' at "Hello Kids" - an agency that organizes matters between mascots and humans.

    But, like all mascots, his heartfelt wish is to one day be adopted by a family...

    There wasn't really an element to catch me, so I didn't nearly read all of it and found it rather boring tbh.

    you heartless monster

    Noramimi is like sunday morning cartoons, but smart enough for grown-ups to enjoy.

    Well comedy but I really do find more serious sub-tones to the manga. Maybe like barba said it's meant for adults after all.^^ Featuring this as it's an out of the blue great read for random good manga hunters.

    This is a great series, once more brought to light by mangascreener. (thx barbapapa, stephen, summer solidier etc.)
    I felt design was pretty cute, with interesting storytelling. Unfortunately, I never got into strato that the author is now publishing in Ikki, I m not sure he can pull something as good as noramimi for a future serie
