The wind of forbidden love
5 Volumes – Completed
Broken hearted, Koshiro unexpectedly met a young girl. Somehow he’s attracted to her. Not knowing that she, Nanako, is her younger sister that he hadn’t met for more than 10 years. Their parents were divorced and all this time Nanako lived with her mother. She move closer to his father (and of course Koshiro) because she was accepted in a high school that is near their house.
It’s really awkward for Koshiro to live together with her. His feeling to her is more than as siblings. It even gets stronger each time. While Nanako, with her childish mind, doesn’t understand why her brother ack strangely. She kept thinking about it. But the more she thought about it the more she realize that she also had feelings for her brother.
Fate made them met as siblings. They know that it is wrong for them to be together. But they can’t lie about their feelings.
I personally like the title, ‘The wind of love’. I read it and was expecting a story as nice as the title. Too bad it’s about incest. Well it’s not my first incest story though. But still questioning why siblings can’t love each other, why other people can’t accept it, and without much care persisting on it, is waaaaay out of my interest. Although putting aside the incest thing, it’s actually a nice love story.
You can feel the emotion of the characters. Like how Koshiro despise himself to fall in love to her sister. His anger, his irresponsible act, and also his resolution. As for Nanako, I like how she gradually matures. Though their parents were divorced, they still have a warm family.
One thing that I really like from this manga is the art. At a glance, it’s looks messy because it’s like an unfinished sketch. The color tones are also not solid. But eventually you’ll notice that it’s very artistic. That style of drawing also fit with the emotion of the story; sad and mellow but can also be romantic.
Like I said above, it’s a nice story. The art is also beautiful. If it isn’t about incest, I’ll give a better opinion for this manga. But then again, I wonder if the story will be as interesting if it isn’t about incest. Oh well, it’s just a story, just enjoy it. 🙂
