This is my first time to write my own review about this manga. Well, I'm not get used to it. Back to the topic, this manga is really hillarious. Good to make you laugh till the end. (Lol)

its about a story a man among the man, Chinami Eita. He did dominate the whole school with his fists, yet he's the strongest and masculine boy. A boy fallen in love with the beautiful short-haired girl which he admired it. In the end, Eita transform turn into a girl due to his friend give a unknown medicine to Eita. ( SHIT-- HNNNGG. ) Moe-overload.

This story is really read more
