This story is about what happens when a boy finds out he is really a girl. It seems that this actually occurs in real life more often than you would think. Even the author reveals in a long note that she had received a letter telling the story of someone to whom the succession of events was almost eerily similar.

There is a bit of disjointed-ness due to the fact that the mangaka had originally intended for the story to end with Volume 1. Due to the urging of many letter-writers, and especially that of a fellow mangaka and good read more

"What would think if you were told you were the wrong sex?"

One heck of a question, isn't it? Well, that is the question facing the main character of this excellent manga. Yoshikawa Kei collapses on the roof of his high school one day, and learns at the hospital that he is, in fact, intersexed. The way in which the mangaka handles such a delicate and complex issue, that is faced by many people in our ordinary reality, is a large part of why I love The Day of Revolution. Another part is how the mangaka faces read more

I joined just to rate this. Which means something happens in the manga to totally make it hard to enjoy. I'll do the first part without any spoilers. The problem I have with the manga is the representation of the character. It is immediately assumed that she will marry a man once the change has happened. While I'm glad this deals with the issue on genotype women with phenotype male characteristics, it immediately trivializes women and what they want in general. She is ignored and brings this point up continually.

This is about a high school boy who finds out one day that he was actually born female. (Hermaphroditism is the given diagnosis.) Instead of continuing life as 'half a boy', he decides to become 'a complete woman'. The manga follows his change into Megumi & then how she adapts to life, including returning to the same high school. There were a lot of really neat aspects to this story, but there were several times that I felt that the storyline was losing its potential. If this had been a series, I probably would have given up out of impatience but it's complete in two read more

Combining a real world thing like intersex and a slightly more grounded setting than a lot of similar gender transformation sort of manga ends up making all the standard tropes creepier than the norm is for the genre. This is a genre with a lot of extremely problematic tropes to begin.

The protagonist's decision to transition is treated as a given and his opposition to the idea when they find out that most people don't do that is overridden by their parents with bad joke justification. The reason the protagonist gives for transitioning is that they wouldn't look like a man or be able to be read more

I wish it was longer. I really liked Megumi as a character. However, I know an extension would include her old friends bothering her all the time, which made me a bit sad initially, since it felt like friends being drawn apart due to differing interests, and easily grew annoying. It comes to a fine conclusion anyways. Megumi's circumstances are interesting, and I liked listening to her thoughts. The comedy was good. Mikoto is great both here and in Princess Princess, so I was glad to get more of him. The thing I'll miss the most is art of Megumi.

I've been trying to fill read more
