Makoto Hanaoka, a womanly second-year student, easily attracts other people's attention. First-year student Saki Aoi is no exception, and she falls in love with Makoto at first sight. Having a vibrant and vigorous personality, she does not hesitate to confess her feelings to her senior. However, Makoto differs significantly from the person Saki perceives: Makoto is not a girl, but rather a cross-dressing boy!

After revealing his well-known secret to Saki, Makoto expects her to be disgusted. Surprisingly, she is instead captivated by this revelation. Nonetheless, he still rejects her, but Saki's determination does not stop her from declaring that she will become his first love. With Saki and his childhood friend at his side, Makoto's world brightens, giving him strength amid his struggle between his interests and the expectations placed on him.

I finally finished the series and I can wholeheartedly recommend it, especially if you are queer/child of divorce. It somehow managed to avoid all the pitfalls of stories which deal whit this subject matter and ends up making something unique that truly represents what it’s like being in high school and dealing with your life. If you are having a existential crisis this is the manga for you.

The details

My Crossdressing Senpai is one of those tales which a glimpse to the everyday life of a highschooler, the problems one faces while in highschool and the various difficult choices he/she has to make.

This story starts with a basic confession, and at first I thought that it was one of those cliche romances, confession, rejection and then the boy and girl fall in love. Yes, it is kinda like that, granted. But the in between points it connected, and how it tackled different things and then finally how it ended, is just beautiful.

Each and every character has given me, and I am sure the other ...

Mixed Feelings
It's a very nice Manga about queer struggles, self acceptance, mending relationsships and accepting others.


Honestly the romance parts are the most confused and it feels like the Mangaka forgot halfway-through that they were writing a romance, or what the main pairing was. There are a few moments where it feels like characters just forgot who they liked or what happened a few chapters ago. The ending feels like it should've happened much earlier with some of the family arcs happening later on. This is because most of the important moments between the main pairing happen fairly early on, but then there is very little happening ...
