Consisting of six short stories, Natsume Ono's Danza is a slice of life manga exploring relationships. A son and his father, the partnership between police, two estranged brothers after an earthquake, the stories throughout switch between Japan, Italy, and the United States. Two stories that stand out are "Diorama" where a Japanese father-in-law tries to relate to his American son-in-law and "Memories of the Lake" where a family relation travels back in time in order to build a memory between his dying father and emotionally distant grandfather. With the latter Ono creates a sense of longing which trails throughout the stories among a mix of humor and sweetness. Natsume Ono's art is quite distinctive. It can look rough in comparison with other manga, with some of her lines having a sketch quality. However, as in all her work, Ono's art has a warmth and charm that lends depth rather than distraction in building a story. Danza demonstrates the possibilities of the comic medium in creating short stories with emotional resonance, and while the stories passed quickly, each represented a small, bright spot in my day. ( )
