Synopsis

Part.1: "Capsule" Arc (Volumes 1-5)
Lately, Kouhei can't get his friend Kurara out of his mind. Even though he has known her since elementary school, all of a sudden, ever since she came back from summer vacation, he has been crushing on her...hard.

But something is different about Kurara—she's acting very oddly. Sometimes she seems wholesome, pure, and innocent, and at other times she is extremely forward and unabashed. Kouhei soon learns that Kurara has multiple personalities—and decides to help her keep her secret from their classmates. But Kouhei finds himself struggling between helping Kurara as a friend and trying to win her heart... which is a challenge, since she has many! (Source: Del Rey)

Part.2: "Secret" Arc (The Next Revolution; Volumes 6-16)
Hatsushiba Akira, an awkward high school senior boy, has a strong crush on classmate Sakuraba Yurika. But when he gets close to her, he always says or does something stupid. One day, at the suggestion of his best friend Kikuchi, Akira enters the GachaGacha machine to play a game, but the machine malfunctions. That night, he sneezes while going to bed, and when he wakes up, he looks like the female avatar he saw in the GachaGacha machine. He soon learns that sneezing will change him back and forth from his normal self to a female form. As a girl, Akira-chan is able to get close to Sakuraba and to become her friend.

Gacha Gacha is a Shounen, Ecchi, Romantic, Comedy manga which is split up into two separate stories, however it is evident that one story is better than the other.

The first story entitled Capsule and it’s about two friends Kouhei (boy) and Clara (girl) who have a sort of love-hate relationship. During the summer, Clara goes to Hawaii with her mom but returns home with some split personalities. From the start to finish this is an incredibly whacky story and even though the split personality concept seems a bit off, it is portrayed in a great and funny way. There really is no structure to the read more

Mod Note: This review was initially posted for, Gachagacha Part.2: "Secret" Arc, and was subsequently merged into Gachagacha.

Gachagacha: The Next Revolution starts out with an interesting concept, but after that it goes almost nowhere.

The characters start out completely devoid of personality, save for the Akira whose personality only serves to convince the reader that he is utterly worthless, and in most respects he pretty much is.

The main female love interest, Yurika, falls into the deathly trap that is why-does-he-even-like-her. Yurika starts out as "The Pretty Girl" and not much else, whose sole purpose in life is to be loved by the main character. About half read more

This is a masterpiece. It might be because it was one of the only manga I'd read in the last 3 years, but it kept me up until 1 am every night. I love the characters and i appreciate the art. The story line is about a Boy who likes a girl (original, eh?), but always gets "manly" near her and gets embarrassed. It's very funny in scenes where he becomes a girl because of a glitch in a game. The story Gacha Gacha is the starting for read more

{Gacha Gacha has 2 separate stories,
1- Capsule, chapter 1-41 , and
2-Secret, chapter 42-96}
(Note: This review is only on the first part. The Secret part is the sequel.)

[Capsule]
[Mood: Light - medium-heavy]
[Notable pickings: Multiple personalities: 6 l Plot consistency:6 l Romance :7 l Fanservice:6 l Sci-fi:3 l Ending: 3 l Harem: 2 (badly formed, some were never resolved or abandoned halfway)]

Story:6
To be honest, this Capsule series started off with a bang. I was instantly reminded of Mahabora, but the scope of the similarity is much larger. IMO, the story started off well, but went downhill from the second arc.

This Capsule series seem to have 3 read more
