Reviews

"Look around. You won't find anything sweeter than this lonely little book anywhere in your immediate vicinity. Unless for some reason there's, like, a bunny knitting a scarf for a puppy. That might be sweeter. Aside from that, this book is definitely your best bet." --Avery Monsen, coauthor of K is for Knifeball and All My Friends Are Dead

"This is one of my favorite comics ever, a sweet ode to platonic love that will echo through the ages." --MariNaomi, author of Kiss & Tell

"Funny and beautifully drawn, I Think I Am In Friend-Love With You is the bittersweet tale of friendships in the age of social media in which many can relate." --Esther Pearl Watson, author of Unlovable

"The warmth of Yumi's soft brushstrokes and vulnerability of her words make me feel less alone in this weird world. I think I am in book-love." --Lisa Hanawalt, author of My Dirty Dumb Eyes

"Yumi Sakugawa's small, sweet hardcover I Think I am in Friend-Love With You (Adams Media) feels so necessary. Sakugawa's one-eyed, vaguely socklike protagonist fantasizes a future of book-swapping, Tumblr post-reblogging, coffee-sipping platonic love, but reveals the most simple of needs in the book's simple black-and-white illustrations." - Bitch Magazine

"I Think I am In Friend Love With You...chronicles a bashful cyclops with a good old fashioned friend crush. Sakaguwa's comics, while being hilarious, are imbued with a quiet magic that somehow makes a glowing computer screen as ripe with beauty and mystery as a night sky full of twinkling stars." - Huffington Post Arts

The comic...expresses all the delightful, little things we hope our best...pals will do for us.... [Yumi's] work has an eerie, wondrous quality to it, blipped with panels that will make your heart soar and dip and soar again. Themes of space and love pull readers into a pensive world of fantastical creatures." - NPR's Code Switch

"In this cute little comic book, Yumi Sakugawa calls attention to how wonderful and fulfilling friendships can be...a fun and respectful look at platonic love." - Rookie Magazine

"It's gorgeous and poignant, and the art is unique. I adore it." - HelloGiggles

"Wonderfully touching...comic book artist Yumi Sakugawa has figured out the modern logistics of 21st platonic romance. In addition to her many wise words, Sakugawa's irresistible, imaginative, charming illustrations add layered examples of how to be a giving, deserving friend.... All those instant social media connections aside, nothing replaces face-to-face, livetime, friend-love-ly sessions of sharing and caring." --BookDragon, the Smithsonian Asian Pacific Center blog
