Kaoru Terazaki is a young boy who uses a female character in an online game. He usually plays with a virtual friend who goes by the username Nanami and uses a male avatar. Kaoru has been lying about his identity, and the two will soon meet in real life for the first time. When the day finally arrives, they realize that their expectations are quite different from reality.

Contrary to Kaoru's expectations, Nanami turns out to be a girl. With their genders revealed, they are both in shock—especially Nanami. She has already told her enthusiastic mother and overprotective father about her female friend coming to their house. Consequently, Nanami comes up with an idea to mask Kaoru's true gender: crossdressing! Even though their friendship started with lies, this odd meetup marks the beginning of their unusual bond.

Well, what can I say? Gamers of all kind should understand that this work of art is nothing short of a masterpiece. The author spins a tale of two gamers leaving their houses and discovering each other in real life - a little extreme, but believable nonetheless. It is quite unfortunate that I deducted the one point that I did, but I was forced to because whenever Nanami's dad is on the page I simply cannot look away, causing me to lose track of what I was reading.

All jokes aside this is pretty entertaining and wholesome, the art is nice and it's in color ...

Imaging meeting up with an online friend only to find out they are not who you think they are.

It started out as a simple meet-up which caused some mental scar in both Nanami and Kaoru. And then the two started to be comfortable with each other. I like how this feels so real because you really can't be sure who someone else is until you've seen them.

They look cute...

story: 7/10. i think the idea of being a "gamer" is quite realistic. the gaming terms and the games they play is close to fair, the characters being the opposite gender online, etc. i rate this 7/10 because i expected to read a story about hanging out with a gamer girl, and i got a boy crossdressing. its funny though, so im not saying i hate it!!

art: 10/10. the art style is soo cute i really aspire to draw like the artist. this manga is one of the very few mangas you'd see with full colored pages, so it was definitely refreshing to see.

character: 7/10. ...
