I really like this manga. I know it is nothing special and doesn't have much time to develop into much that is special, but it is the sort of thing I would have loved as a kid who didn't know they were trans yet.

The protagonist very much reads like a trans girl. The protagonist uses a glitch to play as a female character in the game and the character is what the protagonist thinks is an idealized version of themself. The story of a person who gets to become a female superhero in the real world and get a girlfriend thanks to playing an MMO makes it a wish fulfillment story for me.

Gender transformation manga are normally chock full of very uncomfortable tropes and being only 8 chapters long and cut short usually wouldn't prevent a gender transformation manga from having them. Trans Trans manages to avoid most of them.
