This manga is a sweet one-shot of a girl named Yuka who has dreams for becoming an elite "Bird Doctor." Bird Doctors fly around the world giving medical assistance of their own knowledge and experience or by delivering the latest in technology to countries who need them.
The Story: 7
Yuka's childhood friend, whom she calls Buru-chan, has come back for a short time from working as a Bird Doctor. Yuka is only 17, but is preparing for taking the test to become a Bird Doctor; a test given once every four years.
I enjoyed the one-shot's mix of personal feelings and a little bit of medical background.
It made the story more realistic and more enjoyable for the reader.
The scene/part where Yuka could have endangered herself is a little bewildering, however. I wonder why she is on a snowy mountain so near town? When I think about it, it could happen, but it seems to abruptly stop the flow of the story if you are reading it for the first time.
The Art: 9
Pochi Takahashi, the author, draws manga in a way that is eye-catching. The manga has nice and clean illustrations.
Plus, the translators and scanners for this manga did a fantastic job. The manga is a top quality product.
The Character: 7
Yuka, the girl whom the story is told from the point of view of, is not one of those irritating blushing heroines that need someone to save her. Granted, in the story, she is in a situation where she needs someone's help, but you can not help but smile at her predicament. She is not an adult yet, and acts accordingly when she gets mad and stomps on people's feet.
I have read this one-shot many times and have not disliked it any bit from the first time I read this. I would recommend this manga to anyone 15+. When I put 15+, I only mean that anyone over that age would enjoy it more. It is age appropriate for anyone at any age who could understand it.
Read this manga! (≧∇≦)
