I noticed that this series didn't have any reviews and thus decided to write one. I just read "Return" yesterday and really enjoyed it. I found the romance sweet, but there wasn't much depth to the story. It's a light read, and is good as such. What lowered the score for me is the ending. I really really didn't like the ending AT ALL and it pretty much knocked everything down a level. That ending was just horrible.

Hope this helps!

- are shoujos from a male's pespecive

somehow they reminded me of each other: a guy main protagonist dies and ends up in a girl's body :).  
reportRecommended by sorceritza
They both include gender bender, romance, supernatural, school life, shoujo.
They both start out with 2 male friends, but due to circumstances, 1 of the friends turns into a girl. 
reportRecommended by Tokikake
Both stories have the same basic plot. Two male best friends, one died and returns by possessing a "suicide" girls body. However the character of the characters are opposites between series.
