There are two reasons why I began reading this manga. First, my friend dared me to read a yaoi manga, but this was as close as I could approach that genre (no offense to anyone who like yaoi). Also, I started reading this manga after a sudden personal craze for gender bender manga. I was ecstatic when I finally found a manga that almost fulfills both requirements with great art and great characters. However, I thought that the overall plot was a bit cliched and forced throughout the entire series.
Starting off with the positive, I thought the mangaka had drawn the
characters absolutely beautifully with each character having their own stylistic uniqueness. In particular, the protagonist, Kei, was perfectly drawn to look male most of the time, but female at others. Also, I thought the characters themselves were great in this manga. Although some were cliche, many of the characters were hilarious, unique, and likeable.
However, the reason the score for this manga is a 7 is because of the plot. This is solely my opinion, but I really thought that the romance and the changes that the protagonist goes through were really forced and unrealistic. I thought their was a lack of depth in the romance and it felt as if the two main characters only ended up romantically because they were obliged love each other as the leads of the story.
Overall, its a good manga to read. Although the plot was annoying at some times, the art and unique characters grabbed my attention right away. If you are a fan of gender bender romances, I would really recommend this manga.
