Our heroine is girl named Hina-chan. She is in her 20s. Hina has a handsome boyfriend now, but she will always remember her first love, a boy named Itsuki. When other kids would tease Hina, calling her ugly, Itsuki would defend her, and try to cheer her up and make her feel better. He and some of his family eventually moved away, leaving Hina heartbroken. But the memory of her first love will always make Hina feel nostalgic and happy inside. Itsuki’s grandmother still lives next door to Hina, so she still has a connection to him, somehow.

One day, Hina has a dream of Itsuki, and she is feeling especially nostalgic about him. She is just mentioning her dream to his grandmother, when they are interrupted by the arrival of a stranger. It is a tall, beautiful woman. Wait a minute… it’s Itsuki! Itsuki is not joking, either. He claims that he is really a woman on the inside, and now he is dressing that way on the outside.

And yes, even though Itsuki now lives as a woman, Hina finds herself falling in love all over again, regardless of how Itsuki dresses. But Itsuki sees herself as a woman, and she only loves men. Will Hina end up heartbroken all over again?

At First, I was like no way.... Gender Bender Manga? Not my cup of tea. But I had nothing else to do so I gave it a try anyways, besides the art caught my attention.

It was then at the first chapter that I said, " Hey, not bad at all. "

Then it was like, " HELL NO! THAT HAPPENED?!. "

And then it was, " NO!NO!NO! You do not get to break her heart!"

Then, " Aww... "

Finally, " W-WHATTTT???? "

Until then I realized, hey this manga's quite good. No, scrap that! This manga's actually great! :D

It's not too long, and fits just right for romance seeking read more

When going into Half and Half, what I expected was a story that touched upon the subject of transsexuality, which is something I hardly see manga approach. Sure, there's your occasional manga with a crossdresser in it, however, be them male-to-female or female-to-male, that's a character insertion done mostly just for laughs, that is often borderline offensive and ultimately, doesn't bring the issue of gender identity forward. I also expected, from this manga, a story about how love isn't that much dependent on gender as it is on simply being with the one you like.

Does Half and Half deliver on that? ...Well, I'd say, sadly, read more

Half and half is a manga, I stumbled upon while something good to read. At first, it doesn't look much interesting, but It would be wrong, if I decide it by just glancing.

Half and half is Nanami Mao, which centers the topic of homosexuality, in a typical shoujo way.
Hina is a young girl in her 20’s. She lives in the countryside and has had a really bad luck with boys. While she was with her boyfriend, she remembers her childhood memories or to be precise her first crush, Itsuki. Hina is a girl who is not so “girly”, so when she was taunted by read more
