Randou Masashi is a brash karate star who strikes fear in everyone around him. But despite his intimidating presence, he is secretly in love with the sweet and beautiful Rina Kurimi. Unfortunately, Randou is involved in a horrific bus accident, which leaves him comatose and with a disfigured face. A year later, he awakes to discover something utterly shocking—his face now resembles Rina's!

Randou learns that he has been under the care of a surgeon named Jun Manabe, who reconstructed Randou's face based on a picture he had of Rina. Moreover, Randou is presumed dead, and his parents have moved away as a result. Distraught, Randou crosses paths with Rina and is mistaken for her twin sister Yuna, who fled from her house two years ago. Although Randou initially wished to restore his face, seeing Rina elated makes him reconsider his decision.

However, a boy disguising himself as a girl is as absurd as it sounds, and being surrounded by troublesome individuals only makes it more difficult. Nevertheless, Randou is adamant about concealing his identity until he finds the real Yuna.

Imagine being a guy that is involved in a horrific traffic accident. You wake up from a year long coma and everyone thinks your dead but what’s worse is that you have a girl's face.

After the initial beginning, the story just becomes a bunch of random events about Randou trying to keep his true identity hidden. This can be pretty difficult when ...

This manga was Hilarious, i laughed over and over again. This is about guy who had his face melt down because of an accident and get's face change to his love. and the conflict between the Two is so funny. and since the main character is karate Champion he protect his love one with it's monstrous strength.

I Highly recommand This anime if you like Romance. (it has slight ecchi part)(Also if you Liked this manga I Recommend Mx0 {the same author})

Pretty Face (manga) 5/6/6/6/6

First things first. My "reviews" system is explained on a blog entry. Which can be found through my profile.

Again.. it's not a damn gender bender. Slap a girl face on a boy and suddenly it's a gender bender?

Anyhow it's a romantic gag Manga that can't be taken serious even with the drama it offers. It simply felt rather standard romcom with a very lazy approach of "gender bending" element. Although it had some cute moments, plenty of fair enough fanservice and some drama. It still felt rather bland, average and quite a lackluster on various reasons. I simply weren't impressed enough with ...
