Despite it's looks, this was actually quite a good manga. The genderbending magical girl element surprisingly doesn't make me cringe.
The story is very simple. It's about Hayato Juumonji, a middle aged man who aspires to be a hero and carry out justice. Problem is, whenever he transforms he turns into a magical girl (Literally a little girl).
It is quite entertaining to see him running into trouble and dealing with them whilst in that form and also interacting with people which may cause misunderstandings and all sorts of other troubles. It also makes you wonder what is going to happen in the future as he continues being a hero. Will he be known as a freak who transforms into a little girl or the magical girl that defeats the bad guys? (He's not going to be happy with either one).
The art is not very impressive and is quite simple. However this actually quite suit this kind of manga in my opinion.
There wasn't much character development. It's just mainly on Hayato and his hero career. The villains mostly are just there to be there. They only serve to create a situation to put our main character into action.
Overall I really enjoyed this manga. There aren't many series about a middle aged man transforming into a magical girl so I found this quite unique. You don't have to be a fan of genderbending or the magical girl genre to enjoy this series. For the most part it feels like a normal 'hero defeating villians/monster' kind of story. read more
