    2. Present: Hanako suffers from a terrible disease. After awakening from a deep slumber, Hanako has only three days to live. During those three days, her husband, Takao, must endure a heart-breaking experience, knowing that the person Hanako really loves isn't him.

Noriko wants to have the baby, but Matsumura says that it’s actually a rapidly growing cancer and that they have to remove it immediately. It might also be neither of these things…
    5. Diadem: Taking the words of her dying father to heart Lilith grows up to lead the fight against the evil Empire. Will the Goddess of the North Wind appear to set Lilith and her people free, as her father promised?

    Re: Present by Boichi

    Not as good as Hotel because I felt that the storyline was a bit too cliche in some ways.

    I was surprised to see a topic about this here, I was going to make one myself.

    One of the best one shots I've read, really touching.

    Re: Hotel by Boichi

    Illuminati and Japanzai translated the two remaining stories: It Was All for the Tuna and Stephanos. They also released new versions of the three previously available one shots. The two newly translated stories should be a good excuse for fans to reread Hotel, Present, and Diadem again.

    The new release finally pushed me to read Hotel. A great set of stories, though the best known, Hotel itself, was not my favorite. I am partial to Present and It Was All for the Tuna, both extraordinarily well told. The title story was very well told though, one of the better environmentalist stories I have read, incredibly poignant. The end of Present made me choke up, very sad. And It Was All for the Tuna was a great, funny, touching story about the real driving force behind progress. All five stories were very good, over all an excellent collection.

    I added the volume cover to the OP.

    It Was All for the Tuna was a beautiful thing.

    Re: Hotel by Boichi

    First of all: I think the first post ist wrong, as the Hotel one-shot isn't named "Since AD 2079" - That's the original one-shot.

    I'll quote myself from the "What Manga are you reading/Going to read next"-thread:

    Spoiler show


    I thought Hotel was an amazing one-shot. The story is touching and 'realistic', and the pacing just makes it all perfect. The awesome art made me just sit and enjoy the sight of total epicness, as it's both extraordinary good and fitting to the one-shot. This is a one-shot that wants very much with it's story, and unlike many one-shots and mangas who fail at this, Hotel does it perfect!
