This is not your everyday manga. It strictly deals with cases of intersexuality. I.S. stands for Inter Sexuality.

This manga deals with the struggles of intersex people: the pain they go through, the troubles they confront, and ultimately their inability to reproduce or even find a partner who will accept them as they are.

The series broken down into individual cases; each deals with different people, though some cases are much longer and more dramatic than others.

This is by far the best one and the only one I will be discussing in the review. To me, volume 2 (chapter 13) is where the actual story begins, so if you start at the beginning and really aren't feeling it I'd recommend just skipping volume one as it has no effect ...
