A romantic comedy with a distinctly Japanese flavor. Next-door neighbors Chiro and Ritsu have been best friends since childhood. Ritsu, the eldest son of a family of traditional nichibu dancers, is thrust into the public eye as his career takes off, and his growing fame begins to test the pair’s friendship. And now the twist: when a wish made at a shrine actually comes true, Chiro and Ritsu find themselves inhabiting each others’ bodies. A further complication arises because Ritsu is not just a dancer, he is a famous onnagata, or female impersonator, popularly known as the “Courtesan Prince.”

I really enjoyed reading this manga. In fact, part of me wishes I hadn't read it at all to avoid the sheer disappointment of realising only the first 31 chapters are translated and not the whole thing! After getting used to the fun and loveable characters and wanting to see what happens next among them at the end of each chapter, it was a blow to find out that was all I could read.

The story itself doesn't always seem much more than your typical romance/slice-of-life. Basically; the two main characters have a faint desire to live as the other and have the other's strengths. read more
