Story - 8 - A very simple story. Male protagonist Maki sees pretty girl on his way to checking his exam scores (thinks it's fate). The first day of school, the "girl" Aikawa is in the same class as him, and she clearly announces in front of everyone that she is a "guy" and everything moves on from then (I'm just going to specify him/her as a female to make it easier on me).

Pretty original for a Gender-Bender genre, since in most of them their gender is supposed to be a secret, while in this manga series her gender is declared, yet read more

Prunus trees commonly bear stone fruit such as cherries. This is reminiscent of the first chapter where Maki met Aikawa amongst the falling cherry blossom, but other than how they met, I can't see how the title has any significance to the rest of the manga.

Prunus Girl is a weird gender bender in which we are told that Aikawa is male, but there is still the mystery about whether he really is or not. The manga focuses on the school life of Aikawa and Maki. Aikawa is very playful in everything he does and just wants to have fun. He takes potential situations with Maki read more

An amazingly written Rom/com, Gender bender series.

If you haven't read this yet and you're a fan of said genres,

Give this one a shot, you won't be disappointed.

Story - 8

Heartwarming, entertaining, and funny. The plot itself is similar to other Rom/Com manga. However, the heartwarming randomness within the plot along with a feeling of progression in time is what brings out the "story".

Art - 9

The art is fantastic. Each character is extremely appealing to look at. Sometimes, you'll question if Aikawa is really a girl or not. ;)
The art also gradually changes as you go farther into the story.
You'll notice, and read more

Recommendations

Manga: No Bra
Both deal with a cute girl saying that shes actually a guy even though they dress up as a girl, and they both deal with the male lead being thrown around as to what gender they really are

Manga: Himitsu no Akuma-chan
Both have traps, and a lot of comedy. If you enjoyed the one of these manga, you will enjoy the other one.

Manga: Octave
Though Prunus Girl tends to narrate more about sexuality issues and is far more light-hearted, both of these manga have lots of good shoujo-ai elements and delicate relationship.

Manga: Reversible!
They both have crossdressing leads. Prunus Girl was a little more laid back the whole time, but Reversible doesn't get super heavy either.
I think the main similarity is how they handled the main characters though. Aikawa and Yaezaki had a similar balance of masculine and feminine traits.

Manga: Boku Girl
While boku girl is a supernatural themed GB comedy, and prunus girl is transsexual, they are quite similar in the humor and setting. I'm not a big fan of episodic manga, so I rate boku girl higher, prunus girl gets quite repetitive.

Manga: Bara no Maria
Both manga involve trap characters and remain unknown protagonist gender, gives similar feeling when reading this, though Prunus Girl more into school life and romance and Bara no Maria more into action and adventures.
