Recommends it for: readers interested in CLAMP or LEGAL DRUG, or paranormal love stories.
Recommended to Lois by: tracking back from another CLAMP manga
My first experiment with downloading manga to read on my computer/tablet. Technologically and aesthetically successful. I read all four volumes, completing the story arc.

Very pretty artwork, questionable theology. It seems to be a weird sort of amalgam of Western and Eastern notions of angels, served up in CLAMP's gonzo style. (Well, the notion of angels being born/hatched from eggs growing on the Tree of Life in Heaven was new to me altogether.) A young and somewhat airheaded angel comes to Ear

The Good: The artwork was excellent--especially in the color pages--and the story drew me in. It's also great to see a manga that mentions God in a positive light.

The Bad: Unfortunately, the theology of angels and demons was a bit skewed; don't trust this book as a guide to spiritual warfare. Some profanity and one dirty joke were also present.

Conclusion: This is the start to an odd little manga series I found at a garage sale recently. Despite its incorrect presentation of spiritual warfare, I

In this long day of cleaning out my manga collection, at least this one was worth the time it took to read it. It's still not great and I will not be reading on, as it does not meet my four-star minimum for reading on in a series.
The characters are cute and all, but still a bit two-dimensional.

Wish is a cute little manga about an angel who's sent to Earth and ends up being saved by a human when they are attacked by a crow. It's a short read, short chapters, and I wanted to read it because I am a fan of CLAMP after Tokyo Babylon, Vol. 1 and Legal Drug, Volume 01.

Wish is cute, but it doesn't hold much of a prospect. The characters don't have much depth and I feel like the plot is rushed very heavily. There isn't much offered by this manga, honestly. Angels versus demons, a bit of gay l

I've been on a Clamp manga marathon recently. I grew up on the Card Captor anime and have been a fan of that series since then. So i have been going around and reading Clamp's other works in order to get hyped up for Tsubasa chronicle series which is a crossover of all of Clamp's works. (especially since it features my favorite couples Syaoran and Sakura).

I heard many great things about this manga, but the first volume did not hold up to my expectations. It was too predictable, too cliched, and

Man saves an Angel and as a reward, is granted one wish. The man realizes there's nothing he really wants, so the Angel is stuck on earth until the wish is made.

Cute idea and the two main characters are likable, but every time something happens it felt like I'd seen it before in other manga and done better.

It all feels a bit flat and by the numbers. The art is nice and the cast is decent, but it lacks energy and feels like they are just hitting every manga cliche as they meander to the end of th

[Series Length: 4 volumes / Read: volumes 1-4]

As CLAMP's version of "Ah! My Goddess", "Wish" is a manga where a bumbling angel (instead of a flawless home-maker demi-goddess) comes to live with a considerate but mysteriously lonely human male doctor.

Perhaps not as whimsical and charming as "Ah! My Goddess", but "Wish" does a surprisingly good job holding up as its own story with solid characters (I particularly enjoyed the side arc involving the angel Hisui and the reason behind her disappearanc

Als Shuichiro, ein junger und erfolgreicher Arzt, spät von der Arbeit nach Hause kommt, rettet er auf dem Weg ein kleines Wesen, das sich in den Ästen eines Baumes verfangen hat und von Krähen angegriffen wird. Bei der genaueren Betrachtung des Wesens ist sich Shuichiro sicher, dass er bereits träumen muss und als das kleine Wesen auch noch zu sprechen beginnt, will er fast ganz vom Glauben abfallen.

Se tem o nome Clamp no meio já chama minha atenção. :D
O fato é que Wish é um mangá fofinho cujo personagem principal, o anjo Kohaku, é salvo pelo humano Shuichiro, e a partir daí se vê na obrigação de retribuir o favor. Acontece que o humano em questão não é uma pessoa fácil de compreender, além de outras questões que afligem o coração do pequeno Kohaku...
Enfim, é uma leitura leve e descontraída, para ler sem preocupação. A arte da Clamp é linda como sempre, mas senti que a história está sendo a

No recordaba que esto fuera tan gay, sobretodo para el tiempo que lo leí por primera vez. Me gustó éste primer tomo, leí algunas críticas abajo sobre todo el trasfondo teológico y mi consejo es que no le tomen tanta importancia; sobretodo porque es algo presente siempre en las obras de Clamp y en el manga en general además de que muchas veces solamente sirven para poner la historia en un contexto pero no afectan el resultado final.

I enjoy this story. It gives some interesting ideas on demons and angels. It also shows a very interesting character. Someone who does not have a wish because he is content with his life. I find this type of character interesting. In mot stories where a character is given a wish, there are many things that they would love to wish for. This is a new one for me.

Clamp writes usually really good stories. This is one of their older ones, and one of the first manga I ever read. I love the innocence of Kohaku and the hijinks of all the other characters. The mythology of the world is well executed and introduced.

The series is sweet and has beautiful art, but the characters are quite one-dimensional and the plot is predictable.

The cutest thing you will ever read and it only has 4 volumes... WISH is probably my all-time favourite manga if we're talking romance and cuteness and come on, it's CLAMP, so how can it not be any of these things!!!

Review originally found on Looking Glass Reads.

Some of the first manga I’ve ever read was from CLAMP. I’ve read (and watched) the usual stuff – Tsubara: Reservoir Chronicle, Cardcaptor Sakura, xxxHolic. But I never even heard of Wish before I found it tucked away in a used book sale at my local library. I stared at the cover, and wracked my brain, but nothing came up. So I did what any other fan would do – purchase it immediately and worry about details like plot and why exactly I never heard so

Summary- An angel is on a mission but gets stuck in a tree because she was attacked. A guy finds her and rescues her from the tree. She is super grateful and grants him a wish (hence the title). But the guy doesn't doesn't know what to wish (again, the title) for, but he agrees to let the angel stay with him until he finds out what to wish (seriously, the title) for.
Problem and Solution-One problem was that the angel wanted to help the guy by doing chores around the house; the thing is, she's a
The story itself would have gotten a 3, maybe, but it feels like Tokyopop butchered the translationm, thus the 2.

Except for the human characters, everyone is genderless and thus androgynous. My guess is that in the original, they never said whether anyone was male or female, but because of how the English language is structured, Tokyopop felt it needed to use pronouns, which means assigning genders. While it's difficult, it is possible to make it impossible to tell the genders of characters. The

Tanto, tanto dolce ed innocente: adoro le CLAMP, il loro stile delicato, i loro personaggi ingenui e i dettagli preziosi dei loro disegni. Wish è stato il primissimo manga superiore al volume unico che sono riuscita a completare. Si tratta di quattro volumi, non abbastanza per essere una long ai miei occhi, ma per sempre valido per sentirmi orgogliosa: la mia prima serie completa! La storia di Wish è davvero molto... delicata, si potrebbe dire. Un uomo trova un angioletto caduto dal Cielo e lo o ...more

I admit it. Wish is one of the first mangas I have read. I just so happened to pick Wish up for dirt cheap, so I read it. The plot sounded decent and light-hearted,and it was something to read, for the sake of reading a manga. Looking back, I certainly do not regret picking up this sweet little manga.

Wish, is a cute and fluffy read with mild cursing, and one PG-13 apropriate dirty joke, to appeal to a larger audience. Kohaku, (the angel) is possibly one of the most annoyi
