Kohahu is genderless

How difficult is for (binary thinking) people understood that Kohaku don´t have gender...maybe not genitals at all, is an angel and this is so...I saw the comments and all is about "it is shounen ai or not?", who cares!? is only about a relationship between creatures (human x angel) and the gender don´t matters in the plot!

The thing is, I really like Clamp. Most of their work has their trademark beautiful art, complex stories and some star-crossed lovers. Wish follows this pattern as well, but it's short on the depth of the characters. The story (as described by some) seems childish and is just not very tense or exciting. Nothing really happens and plot twists are solved in what feels like under ten pages. Which makes it kinda fast-paced and not well thought about. the whole thing feels rushed and just very superficially explained.

The themes are more adult though. There is a sort coming-of-age and falling in love kind of thing as well as coping with the loss of a loved one. It really is typical for Clamp, but very badly done I think. I expect more of them. For a short read it was neither heartwarming nor interesting. It sure had one or two good moments and some amazing art, but all in all I found the story couldn't reach my Clamp standards. Especially the ending. What kind of twisted logic does it have? I don't think it is beautiful nor does it make sense. There should have been at least two more chapters. Nobody falls in love that fast!

Summary: Beautiful Art, Funny extra-characters, boring plot, weird not really relatable main characters

You don't get more Clamp than this...

For it's length and well executed story, Wish is kind of magical, sweet, and a nice vacation from your typical teenage girl shojo. The characters are likable and sweet, the world they've created is quite original, it's funny at times and it gives you mysteries that make you keep turning pages.

I don't agree that it's for kids...unlike say CCS, Tsubasa, or Clamp school detectives, this story actually talk about sex, sleeping around and hell, it's more so that the romance between the main characters is very pure and innocent because it talks about love of the souls.

Kids manga

... I read this in my local library once. Totally forgot >.>. Actually, it's my friend who picked it out, her mom picked us up after skate lesson and I read the books she borrowed to pass time... Didn't get very far though, and I skipped quite alot. Forgot all about it once I got off the car... Well, not that it's got anything to do with the manga but I needed to say it to someone >.>

I have to say though, first impression is pretty important after all. Even now I still think of it as a stupid idiotic funny manga, more suited for young kids. I mean, I never did take comics seriously, I don't understand what's so good about them. That just so happens to apply for physical english mangas as well lol.

Well in any case, I probably wouldn't read it if it weren't for me reading the physical book first, but it wasn't so bad. Idiotic and childish but I wasn't taking it seriously anyways, so yea, good time passer. The art wasn't too shabby too, I enjoyed the pretty wings~ lol. I wouldn't recommend it for anyone, nor did I really like it that much. But that's it, there's nothing I got against it either.

classic shounen-ai for little girls

I won't reread this manga, but it was nice, non-dramatic. I'm just too mature to read something without a bit of erotic yaoi (there is no even kisses between main characters in this manga). I liked mangaka's marvelous style of drawing and side story about Shuichiro's mother.

pretty boring..

Rating: 6.0 / 10.0
yup.. thats what i said.. its boring.. i dont really know what it is that im seeking but it just doesnt have it! and im pretty confused if this is shounen ai or whatever, i mean Kohaku is in a different kind of girliness and it seems like nobody is opposed and it just feels like everybody is gay.. i dont know.. i haate cannon relationships!! maybe thats why im not into CLAMP stuff.

anyway.. about the art.. not that pretty for a story that deals with angels but i guess that it'll do. as they say in Japan: "Ma- iika!" and the archangels.. which i deem is like an all gay group.. look alll the same..

about the story.. it just felt jumpy! the relationship is like a straight line no feelings whatsoever and then BAM! his suddenly into him and his heart aches.. ok.. maybe im just being too hard on the story.. but yeah.. the details about Heaven and Hell and "the details".. but really? ok i'll let that one go.

i think that the ending was quite good, and sweet but thats just me being a borderline-hopeless-romantic..

Alot of people are confused on the gender of Kohaku. In this series, Angels or Tenshi are genderless, so they have it to where the readers can draw their own conclusions.... however i prefer it a shounen-ai so that is how i read it lol. Beautiful story by the way. One that made me cry. I loved it. One of Clamp's bests. I love the art and the story line. The characters are unforgettable. Someone else had said they loved the depiction of Heaven and Hell and i have to agree. It was interesting. One of my favorite mangas to date.

Really good (but short) shoujo!

Haha, hey kit--having a flat chest doesn't necessarily mean that Kohaku was a male. In reality, you barely see the chest of some girls anyway. When I was reading this manga, I portrayed Kohaku as a female because this manga doesn't have that shounen-ai vibe (even though it's labelled "shounen-ai").

Anyway, the plot is deep and good. Very entertaining and enlightening yet somewhat sad. Doesn't jump around, CLAMP likes to take their time with moving on the next situation, I guess. Different characters (even with other works. The only time characters look the same is because of manga-crossing; CLAMP would make some characters from their other works appear in their other ones). I would consider WISH as chicken soup for my soul. smile

The plot is original and Clamp always adds on a twist to their work and I love it! biggrin If you like like stories that romantic and dramatic I suggest this manga for you. Its got great art work and a great plot. The only thing I disliked was the ending but other wise I really loved this work and I would defiantly reread this series! This is a Shounen-ai Hehe even though sometimes you are really confused about the main characters gender XD It took me a couple of chapters to realize that the "she" I thought it was actually a HE! (Look at chest totally flat)
