High school student Ginji Kusanagi is about to make his dreams come true. He's made his professional boxing debut and is ready to go on the first date with the girl of his dreams, Minako. However, the unthinkable has happened. Ginji is in an accident, and his spirit is seperated from his body, effectively killing him before his time. A (sort of) angel tells him that he can be reincarnated as an animal and return to his body after he's lived out its lifespan. He chooses to be reincarnated as a penguin, Minako's favorite animal. Now Ginji lives with Minako as Gin the penguin and just tries to make it along as a penguin while waiting to be returned to his body.

Tuxedo Gin is a slice of life, comedy, romance series. It fallows the traditional Japanese slice of life/comedy set up found in many classical manga titles such as Doraemon, Ranma 1/2, Sgt. Frog... Unlike these more popular series; however, Tuxedo Gin is one that never got much spotlight and it sadly remains out of most people's radar. With that said I am still a bit surprise to have the privilege of being the first to review this simple, enjoyable series for MAL.

Simple is probably the best word to describe this series. It starts off with one simple unique concept, then developes and extends as far read more

Both series are stories about young men who have comically altered appearances and end up lodging with the women they long for while the world believes them dead. They are both also comparable to Detective Conan.
both series have a charactor's beloved wondering where they even when they are living with them
