I would say the story is just your usual high school Rom/Com but the issue surrounding Mako makes this anything but an ordinary manga. This may be the first time most of us have come across a gender bender, with such a real life concept, which makes it so fascinating to read. In the beginning each chapter basically brings up another issue or event. Yet instead of having an episodic feel, like most manga of this affinity, the chapters actually link together quite nicely. However the story does go downhill later on, when random developments are just added in.
The artwork is pretty decent with some good looking character designs. However the art style is somewhat crude, which reduces the overall quality of everything, especially the facial expressions.
The characters are pretty interesting but out of all of them Mako is the one this manga is all about. It is hard not to feel concerned about the problems Mako has to deal with but it’s hilarious to see how Mako deals with it all.
Overall Boku no Futatsu no Tsubasa is one of the best Gender Benders, out of all the manga I have read. It’s amazing how well it brings up various issues that we are all thinking whilst reading and give a realistic answer. I can’t stress how many “LOL” moments this manga has in the beginning but that is due to the number of sexual innuendos. So if you don’t mind a very sexually orientated comedy and some incredibly stupid developments, then you must check this out.
*Be warned though, there's a bit of sexual content.*

I didn't hate it but there was a lot left to be desired. The art was about the only redeeming thing in this whole manga. The story (especially the ending), was so contrived, it felt the ending was a part of a whole different manga. The character development was poor and it just was a waste of time.
If you want to read a better quality gender bender about a half guy, half girl (though in a different way), you should read After School Nightmare. It has the sci-fi aspect of this manga; the character development and the mystery is a lot better; and frankly the ending was 20x better than this one.
Edit: I did like how they portrayed the main character in a normal way, in a way where she had problems that were similar (if not the same) to every other teenager. read more
