La Quinta Camera: The Fifth Room

By Natsume Ono (VIZ)


Natsume Ono is a manga artist who can shift her art style from cartoony to detailed depending on the subject matter. For La Quinta Camera, the story of four middle-aged bachelors living as roommates in Italy, she goes the cartoony route, keeping things simple but expressive. The graphic novel is laid-back and episodic with much of the drama coming from the boarders the quintet take in. The manga is fun but much too short. Much like the boarders who stay at the apartment, you end up wishing that you could stay with the book just a little bit longer.
