This is.... pointless.
The most pointless one shot of 8 pages I've ever seen. I'm not even sure how this qualifies for a manga, being merely 8 pages long, with no plot, no names, no - nothing!
It is so non-existent I can't even rate it properly, because there's nothing about it that turned me down, aside from a loli pervert. Then again there wasn't anything good about it. Keep in mind this manga is not a common ecchi at all, despite the genre section there. It deals with perversion, but is not showing any of it at all.
It is pretty much a short view on a
pervert who like to dress up his brother in girls clothes. And then little brother realizes he can use his girlish alter ego to do whatever he wants. It may sound like a heaven to some hard core fans of twisted ecchi plots or yaoi fans, or-- I don't know what people really like this kind of stuff, but luckily, the little brother character is quite normal. He only wants to stop all of that stupidity.
So... yes! This is it! Why is it rated 1? It's not that I hated it, but it doesn't offer anything that rises above that grade. It has no plot, the art is the only thing that can pass as I've seen much worse, we barely find out anything about those two before manga ends, and there was no enjoyment whatsoever.
Long story short, THIS IS POINTLESS. Waste one minute of reading somewhere else.
OK, I'm gonna try my hardest to be nice here since it's a one shot.
Basic premise of this is that some lolicon-lover guy (I'm assuming that's the case) makes his little brother crossdress. Then the younger one wants to cut his hair and they bicker for a whole 9 pages about it until he lets him.
Why? Seriously though. Some perverted older brother makes his little brother crossdress? That's so... stupid. I know one shots aren't known for their amazing plots, but that's bad. I'm surprised that the older brother didn't grab the other one's butt or something and say "Whoops, thought you really were
a girl for a second".
The art's passable. Nothing super fantastic about it. Kinda your typical shoujo look with a bit of shounen mixed in... Reminds me of Azumanga Daioh's style.
What can I say. There's two characters that are completely lame. One's a pervy guy that forces his brother to crossdress, the other one's the little brother that's forced to be a tranny for his brother's sake. Nothing to see here.
Do you have to ask? It was 9 pages of boredom. No enjoyment, just read it for the sake of it in about 2 minutes. I regret my decision.
Here's my one-sentence summary:
If you like one-shots, this is one you should skip. Unless all you love in a manga is gender-bender and implied incest. Then this is for you.
Wow um...first of all it was only 8 pages and it was nothing...Just a boy ho wants to get a hair cut and his older brother wants him to cross dress...it was so bad that I enjoyed it a bit...don't waste your time reading this! The art was really good, though its the story that matters and it sucked...you didn't even know who th characters were...This is not an ecchi at all, it's not funny either...maybe the gender bender category is better...Just don't read it!!!!!
Just personal scratch.

Opinion & Informal
Art: 6/10 It was fine. Cute scenes were supposed to look cute and nothing seemed off. Wasn't good either. Anatomy and proportions checked out. No impressive art in any of specific detail, nature, expanses, etc.
Panel Progression: 7/10 Good use of border cutting and panel layout to give the shoddy story at least enough flair to keep on turning pages. Progression didn't create any confusion and was laid out well enough to keep a good flow. Panel layout and design is a cut above your average one-shot.
Characters: 4/10 Big brother is the main antagonist who only has the name
"big brother". Likewise for the midget trap; I don't even remember if he was referred to with any capacity of a name. At least the kid had some modicum of character development in that he ended up giving into the establishment. smh.
Plot: 4/10 The title.
Development: 4/10 The title. What's up with these spoilers? It'd be hard to call the kiddo's realization that (insert title) could be called character development, but at least he was cute.
Conclusion: 4/10 There was actually a conclusion, below average but there actually was one. More on the open-ended kind but it wasn't abrupt and out of nowhere like in some other one-shots. Then again, the title pretty much tells you what it is.
Overall: 4/10 A bit better than the average one-shit in the art and panel layout department but only just by a little. Plot and development couldn't make up for it though.
