Alt. Title: こどものじかん ほうかご / A Child's Time
Houkago is a bonus volume released after the completion of the original 13 volumes of Kodomo no Jikan. This book is a collection of Kaworu Watashiya’s first drafts, several 4-komas, one-shots, and much much more.
Kodomo no Jikan is a school life comedy by day, and a psychological drama by night. As Daisuke attempts to remedy the complex challenges his students face outside of school, the reader is forced to ask oneself, is Rin really just an innocent child? Or was Daisuke the innocent one after all?
Kodomo no Jikan sets itself apart from other manga by taking controversial themes that nobody has dared to touch, and spinning it into a positive light. Watashiya challenges the reader’s sense of morality. This is a highly recommended series if you like to explore unique subjects within literature. Best to be read with an open-mind.
