Synopsis

Meet Megumi! She's petite, adorable, and a total eye-catcher. In fact, she reminds almost everyone at school of the very elite (and very missing) boy student Kei Yoshikawa. Whispers and wild rumors begin to run riot from the hallways to the exclusive school rooftop...and the most powerful clique on campus has their sights set on sweet Megumi, too. Can her good friend Makoto shield her from a showdown and help her "skirt" the issue? Are some secrets just too big to keep?

This story is about what happens when a boy finds out he is really a girl. It seems that this actually occurs in real life more often than you would think. Even the author reveals in a long note that she had received a letter telling the story of someone to whom the succession of events was almost eerily similar.

There is a bit of disjointed-ness due to the fact that the mangaka had originally intended for the story to end with Volume 1. Due to the urging of many letter-writers, and especially that of a fellow mangaka and good read more

"What would think if you were told you were the wrong sex?"

One heck of a question, isn't it? Well, that is the question facing the main character of this excellent manga. Yoshikawa Kei collapses on the roof of his high school one day, and learns at the hospital that he is, in fact, intersexed. The way in which the mangaka handles such a delicate and complex issue, that is faced by many people in our ordinary reality, is a large part of why I love The Day of Revolution. Another part is how the mangaka faces read more

I joined just to rate this. Which means something happens in the manga to totally make it hard to enjoy. I'll do the first part without any spoilers. The problem I have with the manga is the representation of the character. It is immediately assumed that she will marry a man once the change has happened. While I'm glad this deals with the issue on genotype women with phenotype male characteristics, it immediately trivializes women and what they want in general. She is ignored and brings this point up continually.

This is about a high school boy who finds out one day that he was actually born female. (Hermaphroditism is the given diagnosis.) Instead of continuing life as 'half a boy', he decides to become 'a complete woman'. The manga follows his change into Megumi & then how she adapts to life, including returning to the same high school. There were a lot of really neat aspects to this story, but there were several times that I felt that the storyline was losing its potential. If this had been a series, I probably would have given up out of impatience but it's complete in two read more
