Synopsis

Acting and crossdressing as a boy, Yuki "Yoshiki" Ichihara is viewed as a male by her peers. Despite their expectations, she secretly wants nothing more than to be more feminine. On the other hand, all of Mikako Nagao's classmates believe she is sweet and pure; but in contrast to her innocent veneer, she enjoys selling her body to older men while pretending to be 15 years old. Though it may just be a front, her appearance has enchanted the dashing lady-killer Kaito Aiba, who lusts not for Mikako but to be her. To help fulfill this fantasy, he crossdresses as his idol and takes pleasure in impersonating her in his spare time.

Each of these three college students hides behind an identity that is not their own, masking a self that they cannot reveal. Burdened by their hidden lives, they search for who they are and what defines them as their fates begin to intertwine.

I've wanted to write this review for ages, and now that it’s fully translated, I can say with total conviction that Himegoto is one of the most unique and compelling stories out there. This isn’t going to be a standard criterion-based review, it’s going to be more of an analytical write-up (but I will keep it spoiler-free).

Right off the bat, Himegoto’s setting establishes that this isn’t going to be a run-of-the-mill manga. We’re following the lives of college students for once. How often does that happen? College is a pivotal time of life. While students are still in school, they’re given a great degree read more

I felt the need to write a review for this manga because the few reviews it has, it seems it was written or by a 12-year old feminist or by a Naruto fan...
So it really saddens me the idea people might get the wrong idea of this manga if based in this incoherent reviews. Of course I won't spoil anything either.

As the plot description already says... the story is about 3 persons with identity / sexual disorders, but the thing is how well they were developed? what is the root of the problem.. and how the story plays out.

After the first 15-20 chapter which are read more

Preliminary
Himegoto is a dark/psychological seinen manga, with heavy gender bender and some yuri elements.
After reading the synopsis, I had good expectations for that manga, the thematics are right up in my alley. But with a rating of 3, my expectations were utterly crushed. I dropped the manga after the volume 6 (on 8 total volumes).


I'll go right into the main issue of that manga: the characters.
To put it bluntly, the 3 MCs are manipulative jerks, egotistical, superficial, they think mostly about sex, are over-possessive and lie at everyone.
The only "positive" adjective I can find for them is for Yuki: she's naive, so she may appears read more

Preliminary
Himegoto: Juukyuusai no Seifuku is a relatively unknown manga that talks about issues such as gender identity,psychological issues, and sexual fetishes. If I had to compare this manga to something already out there, then I'd say it's quite similar to the British tv show Skins, only difference being is that there are no drugs or alcohol in Himegoto.

Himegoto follows mainly three characters in college who for some reason or another are not happy in their lives. Whether it be because one likes to dress in girl clothes while having sex even though hes straight or one of the girls wanting to be a "little girl" read more
