So what do people think of this manga? I read the whole thing, and when I reached the ending, I was kind of disappointed. The impression that I got was that they merely wanted to finish the series, and that they didn't take a lot of time composing a satisfactory ending. THere was a lot that CLAMP could have done with this series, and I don't think they were willing to spend the time and energy on it. Which is really too bad, because it's a good series. I liked it. But it was not very well wrapped up.

yeah, the ending wasn't what I expected. I thought it was something really huge... but it was rather sudden and abrupt. but I like shorter series (ones that don't drag on and on). Wish was short and sweet for me.

Clamp has stated in some articles (especially in Clamp no Kiseki vol.7) that Wish didn't unfold as they planned, and they find it to be a mistake in retrospect. They went with what they thought the public wanted: humour and cuteness, with an abrupt happy ending. Ohkawa says they should have stuck with her original storyline, and that "if I could do a remake, the story would be completely different".

So even the greatest mangaka aren't safe from professional missteps...

No angst, no blood, no tragedies. That's Wish. Although the ending is, hm, brusque and unexpected, I still like it. It's sweet and cute. ^^

I really wish they would remake it. I would love to see how they originally planned the ending. I liked how they did it this time, but the story, as previously stated, is really abruptly ended. So I'd like to see how it was SUPPOSED to be.

They probably won't remake it though. They're overloaded with stuff they haven't finished (Tsubasa, xxxHOLiC, Lawful Drug, Clover, Kobato, and most importantly X) that it's highly unlikely that they will remake an old series. Would be cool if they did though.

... pretty shallow to say the least...... I really hated it.... it's nothing compared to other titles like Tsubasa or CCS...

I agree. I think, however, it is worth finishing. Or that may just be me, who can't go without finishing a series unless it's truly truly horrible. This one was just mediocre and not very well planned out. The characters are cute though.

I read some where that the magazine that the manga was being published in wanted the story to end a certain way or that CLAMP's ending was'nt what they wanted. I think that the ending was just a quick finish just so that the rest of the story could get published. Something like how X never finished being published because the magazine felt that CLAMP's ending was going to be too violent or w/e.

Lol, wow.... That's pretty crazy. I kind of like that CLAMP isn't really afraid to be violent in a shoujo vein of manga. I think that's pretty cool. Wish had so much potential... It made me kind of sad.
