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.

The manga is very short. To be honest it took me a while before I liked the story. The manga actually made me think a lot about myself and it really hits you psychologically. But basically White clouds taught me that I should realize who I am and that I should treasure what I have. It's seriously a good manga but it depends on the person though... If you don't have enough patience to read a manga that needs time to think then don't read this but if you have enough patience then go read this manga.
Anyways i'd rate the art 7. For the characters read more
