WARNING!X_X! DO NOT READ THIS MANGA IF YOU HAVEN'T WATCHED, READ OR PLAYED ANYTHING RELATED TO VISUAL/KEY'S KANON!!!!!!!!!
THIS WHOLE REVIEW IS WRITTEN ASSUMING THAT U GUYS HAVE WATCHED, READ OR PLAYED ANYTHING RELATED TO VISUAL/KEY'S KANON!!!!!!!!!
Kanon: Wonderthree (w3 for short in this review) is pretty much a omake (bonus) for kanon fans. The main idea for the manga is...
"What would it be like if Yuuichi remembered the past from the very start?"
That pretty much sums up what this is all about. While the story is may appeal to kanon fans, it is undeniable that w3 can be seen as a "freeloader" on one
of Visual/Key's greatest achievements. Considering those, the score for story should be dropped a bit...
The art is simple and sketchy, which is fairly suitable for the manga's feel (cool, slice of life). Due to it's relations with Kanon, w3 also lost marks for drawing the main characters that mildly to barely resembling their original counter-parts at all.
All characters in w3 are copied from the original kanon, yet their actual personalities are less...um...passionate and friendly than the originals. Personally, I quite enjoyed these new characters, but their little resemblance to the originals are a slight of a turn-off.
Although I said quite a few things about this manga, the fact that it's an omake from Kanon still appeals to me. The "in-humor" is pretty interesting while the cool and mysterious characters gets me quite absorbed to the manga. I would recommend this to anyone who've seen, read, played Kanon. It's a short read anyway :)
