One night, a man named Shuuichirou Kudou comes across a tiny angel trapped on a tree branch. He frees her, and in return, she offers to grant him a wish. However, Shuuichirou is a successful doctor, with a home and everything he needed; he declined the angel's offer. The persistent angel, named Kohaku, refused to give up, stating that "some wishes cannot be fulfilled by oneself." After settling in at Shuuichirou's home, Kohaku reveals her mission to track down the Angel Master of Wind, Hisui, who has abandoned heaven. That is if her devil rival and his two catty servants would let her leave long enough to do so...

CLAMP seems to have two sides to them: the dark, bloody, kill-everything-you-see side, and the disgustingly cute, fluffy, this'll-give-you-diabetes side. This would be the latter.

STORY - As it's only four volumes long, Wish has a rather simple story. As a reward for saving her, Kohaku, an angel, will stay with Shuichiro until he knows what wish he wants granted. What follows is a kind-of slice-of-life adventure that explores the depths of these characters and the relationship between them and others. As well, there are a number of subplots involving God, the Devil, and the conflict between Heaven and Hell, but ultimately, it's about Kohaku's dedication read more

This is one of the best manga that CLAMP has made. Sure, it may not be as popular as "xxxHOLIC" or "Card Captor Sakura", but it holds a special place in my heart.

For one, the artwork is done by Tsubaki Nekoi (formerly Mick Nekoi) and she does such an amazing job with the characters and backgrounds. Everytime I read Wish my breath is taken away by the art that leaps from the pages.

The story is delightful too. It's very charming and witty to say the least, just what you would expect from CLAMP.

The cast of characters helped me to enjoy the story, they're colorful and read more

Normally I watch Clamp's series and this is a total change from the usual things that I have read. I believe this Manga SHOULD have an anime to follow the amazing story. There is everything and more, romance, innocence, devine creatures, some sex here and there (though never explicit) and of course the innevitable. As fans of romance you want the two main characters to be together, but the truth is everyone HAS to die someday. Shuchiro wasnt the exception. Even when you cry the young doctor's death, you see that they have the option of reencarnation, something I personally love. the end can be read more

I've actually read all 4 volumes with a tearjerking moment everytime. I love it, no worries, but I have to be not bias here... This series is quite good. The art is how CLAMP should've stayed with. It's good, and it actually shows how cold-looking the characters, are but in the end, try to reveal their sweet side.

Kohaku's relationship with Shuichiro (I hope I got it right) is a perfect blend. Sure she's not perfect, but that's what we love about her.

Favorite characters? None. I love them all.

What is missing? Well, nothing really. Though I do wish for an anime version of this read more
