    Re: Wish

    Because Clamp like to write alot of short bits of fluff.
    There's a handful of manga that Clamp have done that's even shorter than Wish.

    That's what Wish is really, it's fluff... but it's nice fluff.

    A bit of trivia, Wish was I believe the first manga drawn exclusivly by Mick Nekoi.
    I liked it quite a bit. It's cute and sweet, and it's got enough classic Clamp undertones to make the fangirl in me smile.
    Since after all, Angels and Devils are genderless... despite what Tokyopop said.

    Re: Wish

    Wish is my favorite manga .^_^. I think it's the best...just touches my heart you know? I agree it is like Oh My Goddess!, but it is all together different. That's one thing that makes it the wonderful piece of art and story that it is.

    Yes it is, Wish is mild Shounen-ai in the original Japanese version.
    Reason why? In the manga, the Angels and the Devils are genderless, referring to themselves with the gender neutral 'Watashi'
    But the way the characters are drawn, even the so called 'female' angels, are drawn in the early Clamp's signature 'male' style. Broad shoulders, long legs, tall. (Think many of the main male characters from X and RG Veda)
    Nakuru/Ruby Moon from Card Captor Sakura was also drawn this way, as in the original Japanese version of that too, 'she' was genderless, same with Yue.

    Tokyopop decided to write out every single trace of the Shounen-ai subtext by changing the Angels into 'Females' and the Devils into 'Males.' Which is quite a shame really, because it's only very subtle anyway.
