Synopsis

Haruhiko Kanna is just an ordinary man with an ordinary life. One day he meets 3 witches in a small room in the old clock tower, and that's when his ordinary life became not so ordinary at all.

With the curse, or gift, he was granted that he'll change to a girl once the clock strikes 12 Noon, and will return to his male self at 12 Midnight. He then asks himself, "What on earth will happen if this goes on? Can I survive like this? Most of all will I turn back to normal again?!"

None of the summaries I've read of "Fukigen Cinderella" have really done it any justice. Despite it's short length as a series, it's a very well done psychological drama. The thing that really stands out to me is that the pacing right up until the end feels very tight and key components of the plot are revealed with key precision. To give you an example of what I mean, initially the reader will likely detest the main character Haruhiko because of his behavior, but just as when you're about to entirely give up on him, something about his backstory is revealed that makes him more read more

Recommendations

Manga: Boku wa Mari no Naka
There is a reason I like Fukigen Cinderella and it isn't purely the gender bender, a lot of the recommendations I see for it are for solely gender-bender and really aren't similar at all. In fact I could never find one similar to this no matter how much I looked. However, Boku wa mari was something I stumbled across thanks to crunchyroll and I noticed similarities in the vibe and maturity they display. Both aren't cuties or "funny" they are more serious and focus on mind ****ing the protagonist. Logged in after a long time in hopes of helping those people who were like me  read more

Manga: Himegoto: Juukyuusai no Seifuku
HJNS is the logical continuation of Fukigen Cinderella, and really even if Fukigen Cinderella is building up nicely until the horrible axing, I like how HJNS focuses on the relationships (like a josei manga lol) rather that trying to add adventure into the mix. Still they're really similar, in Fukigen Cinderella you've got three insane girls and one boy that magically turns into a girl, in HJNS you've got three insane girls where one can't decide which gender she prefers and one who's cross dressing (which is just as magical ^_−☆). I really wish there were at least 10 volumes of Fukigen Cinderella though, with  read more

Manga: Boku Girl
Both manga's main aspect are genderbender: In Boku Girl the male protagonist changes into a girl by evil doing of a higher being (god/demon idk what it's called anymore) and has to overcome some hurdles in order to try his gender change. In Fukigen Cinderella the boy is turned into a girl but only from 12 AM to 12 PM (12-24). Well there's nothing more to say (apart from that both are in my top 5 gender bender).

Manga: Hana wa Nisemono
both have guys in university or college turning into females
both turned into a girl through a divine miracle or something and not SIFI where a reason is given like surgery and etc.
