(TLDR Review at the bottom, as always, thanks for reading in advance.)

Going to answer some questions quickly. A lot of talking around this manga, at least here on MAL as of this post date, is based solely on the one chapter "Shiroi Kumo"/"White Clouds", from reviews telling you that, to discussions discussing on the one chapter. However, there are legitimately 14 chapters to be read.

Going to make this slightly short, and I will be referring to the entire manga as "White Clouds"

White Clouds is a manga that would undoubtedly fit the suitcase full of hidden gems. Not read more

During my trawls through various manga on the internet I've managed to come across some absolute gems, both as series' and one-shots. Only a few have tempted me to actually want to write a review for them though, and only one manga (so far), has actually compelled me to write one.

That manga is White Clouds.

As some people have noticed, I like odd anime and manga (especially comedies). White Clouds manages to fulfill the odd part, but not in the way you'd expect.

The manga is the work of Hisae Iwaoka, and it adopts a very unusual art style which is more reminiscent of some surrealist western read more

This is going to be a pretty short review because it's a pretty short story (a single chapter, a mere 16 pages) and not a lot could be said about it plot-wise without giving away a lot of story details that should be enjoyed while reading this. With that said, White Clouds is a very sentimental sort slice of life piece that, even in a genre becoming known for uniqueness, is quite unique.

Story: 10 (Outstanding)

The story is told through the perspective of an elderly dog watching over his equally elderly caretaker as his granddaughter comes to visit. Being a slice of life one-shot story, there read more

This is a very simple one-shot manga with a very simple slice of life story on life and death. But this simplicity only made this manga more touching and straight to the point. Don't expect teenage twinkly-eyed lovers here though, in fact, don't expect over the top visuals. But, nonetheless, the graphics of this manga is enough to pull your heartstrings and even make you cry.
