It is a somewhat common story, although it is a little bit unique; that's how I see it. The story doesn't get very deep, and it only has a little bit of background information. Although I could understand what was going on at the time, I didn't truly know why all those things were happening. The story had a lot of potential to it and could have gone deeper if there were more chapters to it. However, the end did put me in a melancholy state for a little while.
I've never been much of a critic with art. I liked the character's designs, although there
weren't anything special to them, except for a few distinctions. The backgrounds were okay, and the art was neatly drawn. There were some parts where I didn't understand what was going on. However, those were mostly battle scenes and there were only few of them.
The characters were okay. I have seen others like them many times. However, even though they didn't go very far in-depth, what I did learn about them attached me to some of the characters a little bit. I found it very sad what happened in the end to the little boy and how the main character had to live with it.
Overall, I enjoyed the manga a lot and I find it to be a good manga. Most of it was done well, and even though it had a lot of potential, the mangaka did it very well in a four-chapter manga. I wish there had been more to it, for I wouldn't have minded reading more ^^ There was one aspect of the story that did make me laugh a little bit, but then that was what I realized made it unique. There aren't that many stories, at least not that I know of, that have a "Santa Claus" theme (Don't let that turn you away) like this one. I recommend this story to anyone who wants a quick read, although I found the ending to be a little bit sad, so it isn't one to cheer you up.
