Preliminary (21/120 eps)
When I first saw this manga, I was quite curious. When I read it, I was amazed. How Makoto manages his life is amazing, and even though his reason for doing so is not as good as I'd like, you empathize with him, and you continue to root for him. There is some comedy, as well as as awkward romances and situations.

If you are into gender bender, especially the more mature (not in the perverted sense) way, you would like this manga. Even if you think it wouldn't be your thing, try it anyway. You never know!
