Giant Days, Vol. 3 (No-Spoiler) Review

29989615

Giant Days is, as I’ve seen it described before, “a slice of life” sort of comic following a group of friends as they navigate their first semester at university. It’s honestly quite charming in my opinion, and one of those feel-good sorts of easy reading. Not to say it doesn’t have the occasional sad or angering moment thrown in as well, but overall it’s got fun and silly humor and good female characters/friendships. Good male characters, too. Just good, human characters all around it would seem. (Maybe even a good pigeon character as well.)

Being a young adult makes for stressful and odd times, and the events that have transpired over the first three volumes of Giant Days do not shy away from that. In fact, GD fully embraces it with a running start and tackle-hugs it to the ground. This volume in particular covers topics ranging from bedtime romps and heartache to student elections and the terror that is camping.

My boyfriend and I have been reading through this series together and our personal reviews on this volume were mixed. We both liked volume 1 the best so far, but he wound up enjoying 2 more than 3, and I on the other hand enjoyed this volume more than I did with volume 2. We both agree we’re definitely going to continue reading the series though with volume 4 at some point. πŸ™‚ The series just has some sort of comfy cozy vibe that keeps me coming back for more if that makes any sense. Maybe it’s because I enjoy the characters so much, even when they’re doing normal everyday stuff.

So, how about you guys? Reading anything good right about now? Do you have any go-to feel-good reads you enjoy like this one?

  1. Kind of reminds me of a show called Daria. Do you know that show? It was really cool. I was surprised that I liked it because I thought it was going to be too girly for me. In regards to this comic I think it’s great when you really connect with a character or characters. I’m not reading anything at the moment. I have been trying to read Iron and Flesh but because I’m in my 70s I keep nodding off haha

    1. I love Daria. That was such a good show. Used to watch it all the time. Jane Lane was my fave. πŸ˜€
      I feel ya on the nodding off bit. I feel like I’ve been wasting my entire weekend so far sleeping due to being sick. Totally ruined my plans for the weekend and I have a love/hate relationship with napping because it feels like such a waste of time when I have so many things I’d like to be working on.
      Hope your weekend is going much better!
