Yuka’s dream is to become a doctor who flies around the world. And the guy who reached this dream before she did is back…?
“A spring-time of life, where I will run across the sky”
-Takahashi Pochi, Doctor Bird.
The storyline is the biggest strength of this one-shot, it’s about a girl’s dream to become a doctor and to achieve that, she must study hard to take an exam which only takes place every 4 years. The story is quite original but the characters & the way it is executed may seem predictable and cliched to many, but it’s done very nicely.
The heroine is stubborn and childish and she wasn’t quite likable in the beginning but she makes up for that by being determined and passionate about what she does(you can actually see her succeeding in something). Her relationship between the hero is sweet, I’m reluctant to use the words cute & adorable because their relationship has a deeper & solid background and it would just be a crime to go ‘awww.’
Does she succeed in her exam? I loved how the story took an interesting turn from there. I honestly pray that this one-shot will b e continued by the mangaka one day, it’s certainly incomplete for me; not just because of the ‘romance,’ but I want to see the heroine succeed!
Oh, and I love the art, it’s been my ongoing dream to read a manga drawn in this style. I don’t want to get your hopes up too high(even though I did, arawr was like ‘waddd…’ after she read it), but you might read and find that it’s just a normal shoujo one-shot with an interesting idea, and it is.
*UPDATE: I cut off quite a few bits I wrote.
I present two ratings this once, first of all my shameless, personal rating: 4.5/5
My more ‘professional’ rating would be: 3.6/5
