After the first chapter I honestly forgot I was reading a yaoi and thought that it was just a normal shoujo manga. It gives off such a strong shoujo feel and not because of crossdressing aspect or the feminine uke with long hair or the art style (which is beautiful btw), but because of the story.
At the beginning we see really well-drawn characters, a compelling plot about genre roles and a little bit of humor just enough to keep you interested. But things went downhill from there. This was a basic shoujo cliches like yaoi manga and the focus was definitely NOT on character
There are also several sex-scenes that do nothing to move the plot along. I was hoping that seme would support uke to finally deny his mother's delusional wishes but I was wrong. Seme is still constantly treating uke as a girl even in bed and he always says to him ‘you’re a good girl’ or calling him ‘my bride’. It’s really annoying because the uke obviously wanted to be seen as a male and the person who he really is and not some “ideal girl” but that wish just disappeared and he suddenly accepts everyone's forced views on him and acts like a girl. I really dislike where the story went although it was so promising at the beginning.
Also the issue of forcing gender identity on child is constantly being masked as comedy. I know yaoi logic is sometimes messed up but seriously there is nothing funny about mother forcing her own son to be a perfect girl. There is also a groom’s older brother who acts like a crazy stalker and attempted rape scene which was totally unnecessary.
So if you want to read a “cute” yaoi with a shoujo side to it, this one is for you. But if you’re searching for something deeper and more serious you won’t find it here.
