Synopsis

Walking home from work one night, Shuuichirou Kudou encounters a child-like being with wings trapped on a tree branch. After he saves the creature, they introduce themselves as Kohaku, an angel from Heaven. Skeptical of the supernatural, Shuuichirou ignores Kohaku and goes back home, dismissing it as a dream.

The next day, Shuuichirou finds Kohaku in his garden, who has now taken on their true form. They tell him that, for his kindness, they want to grant him any wish. However, Shuuichirou is content with what he has and declines. Kohaku decides that, instead of doing nothing, they will stay with their savior until he desires something only they can deliver.

Although Kohaku becomes accustomed to their homely life with Shuuichirou, they cannot remain on Earth for long due to being tormented by Kouryuu—a mischievous devil—and his sidekicks. In addition, Kohaku is on borrowed time to find the missing archangel Hisui and must hurry before they are both banished from Heaven forever.

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...
