Those with Wings 5

Continuing the  story by the creator of Fruits Basket, Those with Wings Volume 5 sees Kotobuki on her journey to find out the secret behind the wings that are the essence of the story. What are they? What does the old man know? And what is up with the robot? These are all issues that we as the reader are going to see unfold during the course of this series. Issues are also mounting for Raimon as he is captured and we get to find out what the heck  the Colonel has planned for him.

Natsuki Takaya has managed with this title to create a world in which we care about the characters and the pacing is such that you are rewarded with information at appropriate times in order to be satisfied with the reading experience. Please bear in mind that this is a review of the fifth volume and in order to catch up with it and the characters, this reviewer read a synopsis of what had gone before.

Fans of Fruits Basket are going to have mixed feelings about this title I believe. As I have mentioned previously, the story does pay off but does tend to pale in comparison to Fruits Basket in both terms of artwork and tightly scripted plot. In a way Takaya has tried to achieve too much too soon and the overall feel of the manga pays for that. It's still a good read with some real drama thrown in for good measure.

I think this manga is still worth checking out. Possibly reading from issue one properly and working your way through to this one will have a more satisfying result (in fact I know it will). Having written that however this is still a good story in its own right and one that fans should enjoy. If you do want to read Mangaka Takaya's better work, make sure you do grab Fruits Basket as well at some point, even only for comparison.

6.5/10
