Mod Note: This review was originally posted for the one-shot, Angel Sky, which was subsequently merged into Hajimete wo Anata to.
This one shot is about a girl who learns from a supposed angel that her best friend will die soon. She and her best friend know each other since their childhood.
The story is pretty much about how to enjoy all the remaining moments with someone, and even though she’s trying to deny what the angel said, she still trying to enjoy every remaining moments with him.
She wanted to be with him forever and she can’t believe that she will loose him eventually, each moment of this chapter depicts pretty well her fear of loosing him mixed with the need of enjoying her last moments with him.
One thing I really liked about this one shoot is that, it doesn’t really show any love story, it’s a relation between a girl and a boy but nowhere it’s cleary said if they're dating each others or if they love each others.
At least the story wasn’t spoiled by a bad romance and shows that their relation might be really strong even if they’re just friends and not lovers.
And also it’s really up to the interpretation of the viewer, you can see a romance if you want or just a simple friendship story.
I really enjoyed the story, it might looks a little bit generic. But well it’s just a simple one shoot with no pretensions.
Though the ending was really a disappointment.
The art, without being exceptionnal, is quite good and really in a shoujo style. Maybe the eyes of the characters are a little bit too big but the wings are really well drawn.
All in all I would say, it's really a worth reading one shoot if you like this kind of simple drama story with a little touch of fantasy. read more
