Showed some guts at the very end
The comedy was sometimes hit or miss generic stuff. For example, main character getting gender swapped and then having to deal with using bath or bathroom of new gender (hilarity is then supposed to ensue), etc. That's just one example we've seen many times before. The main character also seemed to lose some points in intelligence when becoming a girl considering some of the stupid stuff that she does, which is kinda of insulting to women. That's not to say that it was all bad, there were some good funny moments and if you like fan service this also has some. This might have turned into an average comedy with a rating of 5 or 6, but the ending surprised me some. Usually authors opt for a more conservative or conventional approach. The end had a little more balls than normal and knocks it up.
Major end spoiler ahead:
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Often what you see is the character returning to their original gender and perhaps learning a lesson either about themselves or the other gender. Perhaps a love interest makes the character want to return to their original gender so that they can be with them (something you see more often when its a girl cross dressing like a guy). Sometimes the status quo is maintained like the gender bender character continues to cross dress or be the other gender in an ambiguous ending. Occasionally and in this case the character chooses to stay in their new gender and is happier in the new gender. Here it also wasn't done strictly because of a love interest, but because the character had always been trying to be something he wasn't that is a big and strong guy. The people around him recognize that he's better suited to being a girl and are supportive.
You don't usually find that thoughtfulness in an ecchi manga. They usually go for the simple route or the joke route at the end. This kicks the grade up a level for me. Its still not a 10, but hey way to raise the bar a little there. Also the art was sometimes freaking cute. Good job there.
Truly enjoyed this Manga and would love to see an anime adaption. Personally thought the character progression was good and the ending was a happy sad feeling. Hope to see a spin off with Loki up to her tricks again. After this highly suggest kanojo ni naru hi
Started ok but just ended up convinent
The plot just magically turns in favour of the main character towards the end with no real progression, characters get introduced just for the sake of it. A decent read if you like cuteness over plot, otherwise just move along.
Really enjoyed reading this. I adore all the characters, art is very nice too. So sad it has ended (with nothing else grabbing my interest lately). Looking forward to mangaka's next work
I really like this series
Only manga I've been keeping updated to recently, though I've also been watching Gintama.
Apart from that funny, with a good story... interesting characters if not a bit/very cliched. Still a nice read.
Loki is such an evil bitch.
Story is generic but with decent artwork, I know without Loki this manga wouldn't exist but damn is she cruel. Yes, yes I know it's her nature as the god(dess) of trickery but just something about the way her face is drawn makes me feel like punching her whenever she makes that sadistic/smug grin.
The manga does hit you with a few subversions - the developing romance between 'bros', the trollness of the gender swap... I like both of the side romantic partners- the surprisingly empathetic guy and the surprisingly funny occasionally tomboyish girl...
But the protagonist (mr genderbent) is a damn wimp, idiot and overall pathetic guy who cannot assert h**self, cannot protect h**self and is always stuck in some BLUSHING STUPOR. (S)He is frustrating dense:
* What person (irregardless of gender) is so ignorant and stupid as to have no idea how girls pee (too dumb to google?) and how to conduct yourself as a BASIC HUMAN BEING with a sense of privacy * If it is not cool to be a naked guy in front of another guy, why would it be cool to be a naked girl in front of a guy? * What is martial arts - you trained hard and cannot protect yourself from getting raped by a prepubescent girl?! DO YOU EVEN KNOW WHAT RAPE IS * It's obvious. Don't just willingly stride into an all male bathroom etc and get naked with them. All your problems will be solved. Seriously, the main character doesn't know the meaning of privacy.
Being female doesn't automatically make you a dumbass damsel in distress.
The comedy is mostly derived from the main character being a dumb fuckass. Cute? Maybe. If we changed the gender bent character to ANYONE ELSE
No seriously if the protagonist had half a damn brain, not only would the 'generic near rape scenarios' be thrown out of question, the whole manga would've been so much better.
Well done so far.
Most gender swaps are done as a punishment, an insane experiment or an accident. This one was done for the lolz. Just because a god is bored, the god is stalking and trolling a not too bright girly looking man. It would be a hilarious story without genderbending.
The artwork is distinctive and the writing is better than I have seen in some time for this genre. It does fall into some standard gags but it definitely hit me with some moments that left me a bit speechless in a good way.
I'm currently at vol 8 and I am loosing interest. I understand that this type of series will draaaaaaag out but it's getting annoying. I think I might put this on hold for a while.
PREVIOUS REVIEW: I think Mizuki is SO CUTE! MOE! I love this style of ecchi. It's actually interesting to read: it's funny. It's silly. It's sexy. Cute. Loveable. Fun! I like these style of gender-benders, appose to where it's just a guy wearing girl's clothes.
I hope she stays a girl and ends up with Takero ^A^

Gender has become such a diffused issue these days. There is no comedy except boy experience the female body himself yada yada. Besides this the story only follows a person with gender issues, way to much angst and drama here to make it comedy for me. Not enough experience reading gender bender to say if it generic or not but feels kinda meh to me. "Yamada-kun to 7-nin no Majo" is more my taste when it comes to genderbender/bodyswap. This manga fits more in the genre as psychological and drama disguised with fan service and comedy elements.
