Synopsis

The year is 2222, yet there are no hover cars, time machines, or other much expected novelties of the future. That is, with the exception of the Soul Foundry; a colossal tower where a new medical practice takes place—the transplantation of souls between bodies.

A schoolgirl named Manami lives in the town below the towering Soul Foundry. She has spent her summer vacation admiring Kazusa, a popular fellow classmate. However when the two finally meet, his hostile attitude completely turns Manami off, leaving her irritated that she was ever interested in him. One day, an accident leaves Kazusa in the care of the Soul Foundry, where his life is saved. However, his body requires a week of rehabilitation, which means his soul requires a temporary home. Unfortunately, the only option available to him is the body of a hamster.

Assigned as his caretaker, Manami reluctantly takes care of Kazusa in his new furry form. Yet as the week rolls forward, their bond begins to grow in a way the two hadn't foreseen, and brings to light a glaring issue: whether their relationship will have a future once they return to their normal lives.

If you're hesitating in reading this manga. Don't! I can reassure you, you won't regret it.

This manga is cute and incredibly touching in its own way. I was reluctant at first and just read it on a whim and it turned out to be one of the best mangas I've read so far - and there are plenty!

This manga is different than the ones you know and that is why I was even more surprised that it caught my heart and even made me cry. Short stories usually don't accomplish that in my case.

Honestly, I really loved it. Give it a try read more

Ningen Deshita is about a boy who gets his soul temporarily transplanted into a hamster. He is then cared for by some random girl he barely knows until he gets put back into his original body. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯. This being a romance, it shouldn’t be hard to guess the story’s direction. Yet while very contrived, the story and characters end up rather innocuous when compared to the surrounding aspects of the manga which the author seemed to completely neglect.

In Ningen Deshita, there is a huge lack of reasoning for anything that happens. We don’t actually find out why exactly hamster-kun needs a soul transplant/substitute body at read more
