Like Slice of life, romance, and humor? Read Yumi’s Cells.
Today’s recommendation is a webcomic on LINE Webtoon called Yumi’s Cells, created by Donggeon Lee.
Nothing apocalyptic here, just a great story about the day-to-day life of a woman named Yumi. The twist is we are able to see the world from the perspective of Yumi’s brain, her brain cells to be exact. Each cell wants Yumi to handle situations their way, leading to conflict or compromises, mostly conflict. Rational Cell, Emotional Cell, and Hunger Cell are only a few of the many cells in Yumi’s head fighting for at least some control.
I recommended Yumi’s Cells because it is engrossing. You care about Yumi and want the best for her. The cell interactions are fun and you really can relate to the feelings and situations she goes through. It can get crazy inside her head (we all been there) but the author does a great job slowly introducing all the main cells over time. I love that. And not just cells, the people in Yumi’s life are also revealed to the audience when they play a role in the story, building the series world one enjoyable piece at a time.
Yumi’s Cells is a treat, period. If you are even remotely curious, give it a shot. It’s a hidden gem that deserves to shine.
