Alt. Title: こどものじかん / A Child's Time
Rin has moved up to the fourth grade and is nominated as class president. As Rin struggles with her new leadership role, Aoki notices marks on her neck and suspects that she is being abused at home. Meanwhile, Rin finally meets her birth father for the first time, and her mysterious family matters are revealed.
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.
Note: This is not the omnibus which is comprised of 2 - 3 volumes. This is a single volume eBook formatted the way the original Japanese volumes of KnJ were published.
