Please take into consideration that this series was not my style and this review is simply to explain why. Many others seem to enjoy it; unfortunately, I did not.

So it's about a boy who winds up having a cute girl for a roommate...except the girl is really a boy. What I expected to find was a romance coupled with a bit of difficulty and lots complex emotions. What I got was a very basic plot with shallow and flat characters.

Contrary to what the synopsis says, Yuki is not a crossdressing boy who enjoys wearing womens' clothing. He is a biological male who self-identifies as read more

No Bra has a marevolus story that puts the characters into very interesting situations It has the ever lovable Childhood friend relationship that just sets this manga up for great stories. the Characters are very well developed and the art is good. However the story can be a bit weak at times and depend on awkward situations a bit too much. In the end I highly recommend this manga

Man... one of the 2 guys "in love" has 90% resemblance to a female?
Mainly "panties"... what else can I say?
Well, mostly it is about 2 girls who fall in love with a guy who has little attributes, flirtatious, horrible etc. mainly because of reasons the guy did not deserve (aka misunderstandings the guy did not clear but instead let them continue)

For a first, this is the first review I've doen that I will separate into 2 parts, 1-18 and 19-27. Reason being, these 2 portions seem to be totally different.

Amazing storyline, I was so surprised at the twists to read more

Story 7/10 - The story was good, but if you are looking for a "Tale of Two Cities" or "Brothers Karamazov" then you have picked the wrong genre. It's a about a guy, Masato, whose not at all very charismatic and kind of socially clumsy and a trans-gender(not transexual, huge difference) guy, Yuki, who falls in love with him when they were kids. The story can be flat at times and rely on not very 'intelligent' subject matter, but it was part of what made it so funny.

Art 7/10 - Not going to lie, don't know much about the art side of anime, it read more
