Synopsis The story involves two girls named Miyuki. Wakamatsu Masato lives with his step-sister, Miyuki, with whom he does not have a blood relationship. Their father is always working overseas (in fact, he has not appeared in the manga at all...) and left the two of them living by themselves in Tokyo. Miyuki is cute, nice, sensitive and very popular among guys around Masato.
Masato has a girlfriend at school whose name is Kajima Miyuki, who is pretty and gentle, the ideal dream of every highschool boy. It takes years for Masato and his sister to realise whom they love and care for most after a lot of events.
Review The manga is very nicely written, with excellent layout, interesting story and character developments, refreshing art style and filled with youth and emotion. It also shows the dramatic improvement of the author's skill.
This is quite an old manga, published in 1981, the year before TOUCH.
There isn't so much sport in MIYUKI, instead it is more of a personal story of school life, romance, and daily life. The characters look the same as those in TOUCH and SLOWSTEP. All innocent stuff, even if one of the most vivid panels is of two girls dressing, being peeped on by a couple of boys. The artwork is OK but as with other Adachi manga no doubt the story's the thing, and it's not difficult to follow the thread even without a translation.
Not a trace of violence or the supernatural here. I don't know of any translation, but Adachi fans will want to pick up secondhand volumes anyway.
