This is a scintillating tale that will put more emphasis on the time that we share with our loved ones. A Present once opened, the inclement struggle of life shall pass.
Story-There's nothing especially grandeur or ground breaking about this story. A student falls madly in love with her teacher, their is a reluctance in dating his pupil.Fast foward to Hanako being in chronic coma liked state due to an incurable disease , takao sucumbs to these difficulties as times. These stories at times try to be sensationalistic and unrealistic in trying to enthrall the reader but the story tries to be
computational to real life. The propriety elicited from this manga showcases the strength of the human heart and mind that combats the turbulent events that can happen in life.
This story entails the struggles that one must go through when witnessing their loved ones suffer. This story also displays how tradegy is an ordinary and common outcome in life which Takaos father is able to empathize with his son. A coalescing of emotions become resurgent within his father remembering the life that his wife took from him will waiting at her bed side. Contrarian to that he also felt helpless watching her suffer and the continuity of her suffering with no consolation.
Due to the recuperative powers of some of the treatments her consciousness is restored but her personality is still dormant. Hanako will never be the same as her lack of what makes her uniquely herself which makes Takao feel that the world is filled with perfidy. Hanako senses Takao's innerdisorder residing inside of him, even though she can't express herself freely she still has some remote cognition.She gave him the present that Takao's father's wife failed to endow and that was the present of severring their bond. The gails and naked winds of suffering finally ended with a Present, as a gesture from a loved one telling him in a way to move on.
Art-As a relatively new manga,the colouring and usage of variations fit well with the mood of the story.Everything congealed well together, with the art being continuous in its consistency.
Character-Some might say that you need an archive or volumes of pages in order to sequester development. In this particular case that would be wrong with Hanako seeming to be a regular day girl at first and then becoming a resolute woman through sufferance. Takao fit the bill of being a concerned and trepidious spouse for his wife and the enduring pain in which he rationalized to keep on going. Their was an innumerable amounts of conflict that prompted development,which would otherwise be maladjusted and weak characters because of the length of the story. Takao's father also remonstrated within himself through the same conflicts, as readers we got a taste of how different people deal with the similar circumstances.
Enjoyment-Heavily enjoyed but saddened when reading a piece that is based upon such a sacred and personal subject.
Overall- If your a fervent supporter of a tear jerker type then I recommend this. However if your conducive to being too emotional then you might be turned off. If you believe in integrity or in the dutiful power that it takes in order to steer the ship out of the storm, I imagine this as your type of manga.
