Confessed to by the person she likes and getting her first boyfriend, first-year high school student Ayumi Kohinata's life could not get any better. However, on the day of their first date, Ayumi receives a call from her unpopular and dull classmate, Zenko Umine, who tells her that she will jump off a roof momentarily. Losing consciousness, Ayumi wakes up at the hospital and discovers that she has switched bodies with Umine.

In an attempt to get her life back, Ayumi tries to tell everyone about the strange phenomenon despite her different appearance. However, as no one believes her, she is ridiculed by her classmates. When Umine comes clean with Ayumi, she tells her that she has always wanted to live the life of a popular girl and will never swap bodies again. Irritated but determined to return to her normal life, Ayumi vows to take back her body, friends, and boyfriend from Umine no matter what.

This review may contain spoilers.

Having an appearance that is not what society considers conventional is not easy. It's even harder on teenagers in high school.

The shoujo genre is usually filled with stories about beautiful high schoolers with slender bodies, cute big eyes and who are considered cute even when in-universe, they are supposed to be plain. Sora wo Kakeru Yodaka does have one of these protagonists in Ayumi, but brings a stark contrast in its deuteragonist (and antagonist) Umine; and takes a step further when they switch bodies due to Umine's influence.

Personally of what I have read, the history is good enough for the motive that the unpopular girl transforms in the popular girl exchanging bodies. Now, these dramas of dissent with one itself I feel that he lacks a bit more of reinforcement. The prominent figures please me but I feel that they must emphasize if one of them will be the antagonist or not, these games of wanting and not wanting it does not please me. He lacks things but to read it for the history, it calls enough the attention. My favorite personage is Kaga.

so let me get this straight about this manga

- the fat chick is SO UGLY to the point that she's bullied by her classmates
- her only family is her mother, who doesn't treat her well either
- she has NO FRIENDS
- in the very first chapter she TRIES TO KILL HERSELF

and yet *somehow* she's THE VILLAIN of the story???????? and the beautiful, thin main character, who has a boyfriend and lots of friends, is the UNDERDOG????????????

did I get it all right or am I hallucinating??? I know I only read 3 chapters but that's pretty much the idea I got from it. I already disliked it ...
