Being a fan of Miwa's other work (Peach Girl), I had eagerly snapped up this title when it came out. From early on Papillon was very entertaining but suffered one HUMONGOUS flaw: it's pretty much a carbon copy of the dynamics of Peach Girl. The rivalry between Ageha & Hana had the same dynamics as the rivalry in PG & as such, didn't bring anything new to the table. Well, as of this volume things are slowly starting to come into their own. My biggest thing is that it's still a little too similar to PG & at times it suffers from it. The problems & issues still mirror Miwa's other work & while Papillon is enjoyable, it seems an inferior work when compared to PG. It just doesn't have that much creativity when you subtract all of the similarities to PG. The other bad thing about the similarity to PG is that it runs the potential of having the flaws of PG, most of which stemmed from the manga being a little too overly long & drawn out at points. (Come on... you guys know what I mean. At times Peach Girl seemed to fall victim to the drama version of "Monster of the Week" & could've been 3-4 volumes shorter!)
In any case, it's steadily getting better & I can recommend it to many manga fans.
This volume focused more on Ageha and Hayato's relationship. Within the first chapter, Hayato mistakes Hana for Ageha, and so Hana takes advantage and acts like a complete whiny brat to him. He decides to break things off with Ageha, which she is very upset about since she doesn't know what she did wrong. Also, another counselor (someone who also works at the school or something. We only see him for this one scene, and are never really introduced,) talks to her and gets it in her head that a counselor/patient relationship is bad. That if the counselor starts a close relationship with their patient, then they're failing with the therapy because therapy is what needs to help the patient, not the relationship. Ageha gets all upset about it, thinking that Hayato doesn't actually like her and was just being nice when he accepted. (While talking to the counselor, before he goes off on counselor/patient relationships being bad, Ageha states "But, but... can't they be in a relationship if there's chemistry between them?" This is one of the stupidest things I've read in a while. I mean, really? It's like a teacher/student relationship. They're usually prohibited, it doesn't matter how they think they feel about each other. How does she not already understand that?) And then she gets sick, which is when the whole mess with her sister starts. After a couple of chapter where everything just gets worse, they realize their mistake and make up. Ageha also meets Hayato's supervisor, who gives some good advice that makes her rethink some things. Also, Hana confesses to Hayato that she doesn't like seeing Ageha happy, which is why she did all this. (I guess Ueda had her openly confess this to him because he's going to be the one to help Ageha grow up, or something?Read more ›
