Taiga Hirasawa has always longed to be a hero like in the movies, but he has never known who would play the heroine's role. On his first day of high school, he sets eyes on "Maria," the star of the drama club. Graceful, with an air of ambivalence, Maria is the apple of everyone's eyes. Taiga is quick to confess, only to find out that Maria's real name is Yuu Arima, a very much male classmate.

However, Taiga is drawn to Arima's volatile personality, belying a past that haunts them to this very day. Regardless of gender, Taiga nevertheless wants to learn who the true "Arima" is.

[Written by MAL Rewrite]


Boy Meets Maria was published in Spanish by Milky Way Ediciones on September 29, 2020; and in English by Seven Seas Entertainment on October 26, 2021.

The manga treats gender is really interesting it sees it not as a fix trait but as a blurry and confusing aspect of one’s self. It doesn’t jump immediately to labels, and prefers to explore different aspects of gender. Disregarding the origins of the gender questioning (Which I find unnecessarily complicated, questionable but understandable) the way the person in question views his (Pronouns used to refer to him in the book) gender is surprisingly relatable.

You'd think it is a light novel-esque bait title, but respect for this title being actually coherent to the story and short to read, but that's beside the point. What ...

I am insanely disappointed in this book!!! It pretends its going to be progressive at the start and seems really good; I had my hopes up only to have them set on fire. I do have to say I didn't finish because at the halfway point I was so upset with it I threw it accross the room, something I've never done before.
This book feels insanely offensive to trans people, I say that as one myself! I am pissed at the horrible reprentation DO NOT READ THIS MANGA!!! I am upset, I am angry, I am done. Being transgender isn't the result of poor ...
