I want to... I'll miss you....

And now it's time for a relatively normal thing in all girls school... I don't know how things go on there but this manga might enclose them the way they happen...
Why I say it? Well mainly because when a burning, painful, big wish to do something hits you, then you have nothing else to do than do it... In this case the main character did it.... But in the end things turn out the way you didn't expect...
The story takes in a school club were girls and boys should be together, but
as the school is an all girls one, the Club is made up just of girls... So then taller girls are forced to have the lead in the dances, whichever the type is... While the girls are happy when dancing, there's a girl who can't cope with the idea to be always the lead
That pretty much takes her to do the forbidden :P... The story is good... has logic... and has an ominous feel of harsh reality every seinen title has. While it's a one shot I really think it's good for a quick read, but maybe the dialogues could have been more meaningful on that side of the manga... I congratulate the author for the dialogues 'cause they drove the manga the right way... It's a really good story
Clean.... readable... Nice... and kinda has a CLAMP feel... I don't know why I got it, but the artstyle had a distinctive influence from CLAMP's art.... Character designs imitates those of CLAMP's characters... Thin, long and feminine/androgynous sets... The art might be a turn off 'cause it's supposed to be an all girls school, but some of them looked like boys... I even mistook the second lead character as a boy... heck I even confused or related to Clow from either TRC or CCS, obviously more thinner than CLow, but she really looked too Clow-ish to me...
Hair is the worst thing of the manga.... completely sketchy and or/unnatural.... I guess I gotta get used to such style if I plan to read a lot of manga haahahah
Sadness driven characters are perfect to create a drama filled manga, but the laid back, happy-go atmosphere created around them clashed with their attitude, creating a bizarre combination between happiness and melancholy/sadness
Wishes are such dangerous things, and have a high price... A price unaffordable for others, but manageable for them
Curiousness got me, and while I bumped with this manga by pure coincidence, not even 'cause I wanted to read a shoujo-ai, just because I say it had a low rating, I wanted to give it my own shot, and it really tool its chance and managed to get my love and even make me do this review for its honor and promote it among other MAL users to read... I really enjoyed it 'cause it had me thinking all along the manga, what will the girls do, how will the lead manage to get what she wants, will she convince the other girl to do it? I liked the way the one shot was taken to
Overall despite its shortness, it's weird hairstyles and the 'manly' girls it sported, it was a great read for the short while it lasts... it clearly deserves a high rating all to its sense of reality... Numbered scores... Story 78%, Art 71%, Character 75%, Enjoyment 83%... which sums up to 307 out of 400% Resulting in an overall score of 76.75% rounded to 80%
This is a story that deserves some love n_n
