Magnolia was unexpectedly good. It reminded me very much of Afterschool Nightmare which I, to my surprise, had also enjoyed reading.
I really like stories that try to explore gender on a biological level. Ayato, the main character has physical characteristics of both binary genders. Ayato struggles with finding Ayato's true gender and throughout the story, a range of people try to influence Ayato's decision.
The art is phenomenal and the characters are pretty diverse in personalities. There's a strong physiological theme and many of the characters suffer through their own dilemmas, not just Ayato.
Even though I enjoyed it, I do have to
complain about the rushed ending. However, the meat of the story is still good.
