This download is the tankoubon collection of two short stories, “Chocolate Christmas” and “Wink Rain”.
Part 1 of Chocolate Christmas follows the adventures of Ryon, a lonely girl whose life is changed by a radio broadcast she listens to on Christmas Eve. She falls in love with the show’s DJ, “Mr. Choco” – and this story tells her year-long adventure to find him!
Part 2 of Chocolate Christmas, entitled “Wink Rain”, follows the love-square of Marin, Aya, Itou, and Koizumi as they try to navigate their first year in high school apart from each other. It is a very romantic one-shot, part of Naoko Takeuchi’s “rain collection” in which all the stories are focused around the theme of rain.
Both volumes were originally published back to back as stand-alone pieces in Nakayoshi Monthly, December 1987 and January 1988. They were later compiled and released together in a graphic novel on December 6th, 1988.
