Hinata Asahi is a high school student who lives alone with only her teddy bears to keep her company. Her life becomes much more exciting when the handsome Shirou Asou, moves in next door—not only is he really cute (even if much older), but he's also her new teacher! Hina has a bit of a crush on Asou-sensei, but when the older man seems to take an interest in her as well, is it a forbidden love or something else?

Sometimes the most simplistic stories can have the biggest impacts on our hearts. "Suki" would be a fantastic example of this. The love presented in this short manga is at such a level of pure beauty that one can't help but fall captive to it.


Meet Hinata Asahi: perhaps (and at no exaggeration) the world's happiest girl. She is, by quote from her friends, an "absent-minded savant".

Something about Suki immediately caught my interest during my CLAMP obsession phase...maybe because it was, and still is, completely different from any other CLAMP title I know of. Entirely devoid of any fantasy of magical elements and with a distinctly different style, CLAMP themselves hail Suki as a turning point in their story telling and art direction. While reading it you can observe the 'story within a story' technique later revisited in such favorites as 'Chobits'. However, after buying the complete set with much excitement, it was all downhill from there.

The thing is, Suki doesn't make much sense to me. I'll try to explain why.

Suki Dakara Suki was one of those mangas that I dipped into mostly out of boredom and slight curiosity, being somewhat of a CLAMP fan already, but didn't really expect much out of. It seemed simple enough: a cute schoolgirl, a handsome teacher, and a possible romantic outcome, or at least a sweet, unusual friendship story.

While it is true that Suki has neither the epic twists nor elaborate art style of more well-known CLAMP mangas like XXXHOLiC or Tsubasa: RESERVoir CHRoNiCLE, this actually works in its favor. Like the picture books Hina loves so much, Suki's strength lies in its ability to tug at one's read more
