Chizuru Yoshida is not your typical high schooler and she's all too aware of it! She has a talent with getting what she wants from her male lovers and often comes across as cold and manipulative...

In truth, despite her experiences with guys, she has never been in love. That's until the fateful arrival of newly-transferred student, Azumi Yamada, at her school. It was love at first sight for Chizuru—indeed an unexpected turn of events for the story's vixen!

Not only was she in love but with all things another girl. Chizuru goes through a brief stage of anger and denial and tries to convince herself that she couldn't possibly be attracted to such a simple-looking, shy, and naive girl! To her despair she finds herself constantly thinking of Azumi, so she finally resolves to become friends with her, but it's not too long when she starts to push things along with Azumi...

The strong point of Hen is the surprise that the main character has when she falls in love with another girl. You get a sense for how her mind works and the stops and starts it goes through as her instincts act on their own, which is something that not every mangaka can capture successfully. It tells you that the mangaka knows a thing or two about the human brain and it makes you wonder how much personal exposure he might have to gay culture.

I like that many of the panels are dedicated to simple changes in facial expression, or reactions to a strange comment ...

As much as I like the artwork, the story and characters are nothing special. At the beginning, it all makes sense but progressively,the situation with Chizuru becomes more unrealistic. There is suspense, but only a very small amount. So personally, reading this was only enjoyable because of the artwork. It is more of a shoujo-ai than a yuri, but there are some sex scenes, both heterosexual and lesbian.

Hen Is what I would call an utter disaster that goes on way too long, overstaying its overstretched plot welcome. It's so bad; maybe you should stick to relevant popular media instead of this ecchi, cheesy mess.

A story of lesbian twisted fowl nature which never passes as being homophobic nevertheless becomes the main center point of the plot element. Amongst Yoshida, Chizuru nudity sexy busty mind games that go on way too long. Between several characters, one who she’ll prioritize beyond comfortableness. Yet she’s sixteen and has countless sex day-to-day shenanigans?

It begins off well, sort of, with the main focus on a perverted soon-to-be pedo ...
