This is a scintillating tale that will put more emphasis on the time that we share with our loved ones. A Present once opened, the inclement struggle of life shall pass.

Story-There's nothing especially grandeur or ground breaking about this story. A student falls madly in love with her teacher, their is a reluctance in dating his pupil.Fast foward to Hanako being in chronic coma liked state due to an incurable disease , takao sucumbs to these difficulties as times. These stories at times try to be sensationalistic and unrealistic in trying to enthrall the reader but the story tries to be read more

I stumbled onto this manga when I was looking for a good one-shot to spend my time on. The apocalyptic premise of the story appealed to me immediately, and the cover looked promising as well, with the skyscrapers half submerged into the glittering ocean. Furthermore, hotel was the highest rated one-shot on this site and so I decided it would be a good investment of my time.

I still think it was, but I'm not sure I would rate it as highly as the others who read it. The poignancy of the story is marred by a rather bizarre and hilariously bad attempt read more

It's a climate change propaganda with pretty art. It claims that humans are able to accidentally turn the Earth into similar hell as Venus, which is impossible. So why did the author choose to make such a story? To make you feel bad for being a westerner who has computers and cars and cell phones and nutritious food when the people in Africa don't have such. That's all I can think about. Nobody can be so scientifically illiterate as to actually believe this could happen.

To those who still don't get it: Venus if Venus specifically because it's outside the green zone of our solar system. read more

Manga: 2001+5
The First chapter of 2001 + 5 was similar to Boichi's Hotel. Huge Machines, that have a artificial soul which protect the last human in the world and try their best to keep them. I really recommend the first chapter of Hotel!

Both deal with hope and despair over a long period of time involving many characters in a spiral of emotions and psychological conflicts.
