This one shot is a 10/10 masterpiece. I clicked on White Clouds by complete accident and I can’t describe how glad I am to have read it. I know others have said it, but I simply can't think of another word to describe it besides amazing. White Clouds was simple but so touching and beautiful. Very few mangas can capture the realistic and down-to-earth feeling so elegantly. There are a handful of admittedly great series, but still, nothing comes close to the amount of emotion White Clouds pulls from me.

In 16 pages, it is the only manga to ever make me cry.

The story is delicate ...

(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"

Preliminary (1/14 eps)
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 ...
