Born twelve years apart, siblings Koshiro and Nanoka were separated when their parents divorced and moved to different parts of Japan; as a result, they both grew up hardly aware of the other's existence.

The story begins when 15-year-old Nanoka moves to Tokyo to live with her father and brother, the latter being 27 years old and employed by a marriage-arranging company. Koshiro first encounters Nanoka on the train one morning, and returns her dropped train pass. Despite their age difference, they feel a brief spark of connection before they go their separate ways.

Soon after that, they encounter each other once again near an amusement park, where they go on an impromptu date. While riding the Ferris wheel, the two open their hearts to each other and discuss their recent romantic woes. Nanoka comforts Koshiro when he breaks down and cries, and he realizes that he is very attracted to her. Right after the date, they meet their father, and are startled to realize they are siblings.

Koi Kaze is about Koshiro's love for Nanoka, his conflicting drive to obey societal norms, and Nanoka's growth into womanhood and her growing feelings for her brother.

The highlight of this manga is it's story. It's not necessarily completely unique in premise, but the way it treats its subject matter is what makes it stand out from the pack. Motoi Yoshida presents Koshiro and Nanoka's relationship in a realistic and powerful manner. Humor is also provided whenever appropriate.


The character designs are all pleasant looking and very distinct from one another. Expressions are always drawn well enough that you can know how a character is feeling. The backgrounds don't show much detail for the most part, unless a scene is being introduced. Overall, the style is a bit simplistic, but this fits read more

Incest. One of the many taboos as dictated by the judgmental society. One that is considered immoral and wrong in every aspect. Metaphorically speaking, incest is a visually-disastrous model that no average painter nor photographer would ever pay attention to it; it's that ugly, regardless on which angle it is viewed from. Especially if this was to be discussed in my home country of the Philippines, known to be the only country in Asia whose predominant religion is Roman Catholic. The mere thought of one bringing up a discussion of this nature in my homeland would be enough to have him/her suspected of having such read more

I'm glad, that read it.

Much smarter than all mangas with similar topic I've read and not so mainstream as majority of manga in general - that's for what I loved reading the subj very much.

I think, the fact that the hero is an adult is really cool. There exist not so many such mangas, that I know (like Monster, Rurouni Kensin, partly Death Note, Gintama...) and it's much more pleasure to read them, 'cause you as reader aren't treaded as 13-year child, plot is mature and not so random and senseless.

The story is beautifully tragic. The utter sense of sorrow that derives from the concept of forbidden, impossible love is expressed well in 'Koi kaze'. I believe most people out there hate incest. Why? Because it is immoral, because they just can't imagine themselves falling in love with their own sibling. This manga however will overturn your rather self-centered ideas of incest relationships.

Two siblings fall in love after being separated for nearly eighteen years. Such love is disregarded and is considered 'wrong'. Koi kaze however, questions the justification of this by giving an insight to the hardships that our protagonists face on their journey to read more
