shoujo stories in disguise   
Rating: N/A

I read the one shot or chapter zero, and I think it's a shame. I've read a couple gender bender typically haven't liked many(one was good, one was average). Nor has there ever been one where I wanted the guy to really end up with another guy. In the average one, it wouldn't have bothered me, the other wasn't about cross dressing. Seems like the one shot was going in a different direction. It was more ambiguous and the possibility(of him being gay and never exploring it) seemed to be there. That's a bit of a shame.

The way the story starts certainly does turn something different into something more typical perhaps. Makes it more of a faux yuri type story. If you start with the main chapter, it probably won't matter since the guy becomes a pathetic joke. So I guess I recommend skipping chapter 0.

Despite this being about a cross dressing boy, it fits the mold of a typical shoujo story, especially with the emphasis on the girl. With her choices being the effeminate shoujo-style genki boy, and a pervy, downright creepy cousin. In the real world, both would have barriers, but in shoujo land, It'd be easy to predict who gets who.

I can see what Momashk was talking about with the art. Some scene shifts are jarring, the sky is often bare(and how bare does it have to be for someone to notice, very!), sometimes walls seem like they were just started.

If I were to rate this, I'd still give a decent score, but if you're into non-sexualized traps(the art isn't sexy) or boy's dressed as girls getting together with girls, then you'd probably like it. I didn't notice this listed as shoujo anywhere but if you're into the tropes/fetishes/proclivities/tendencies of those types of stories, this might be up your alley.

Very rewarding read

At first glance this may seem like a "been there, done that" kinda of gender bender/romantic comedy, but the further in you get the more the characters grow on you. There are a few dilemmas, but thankfully the mangaka doesn't let it devolve into melodrama.

Mizuho-chan is a fun and relatable (bear with me here) character. S/he starts off carefree living in the moment with her/his two friends and enjoying life as a girl. But when Alice shows up her/his perfectly carefree existence is brought into question. Mizuho-chan then has to work out her/his feelings that are budding for Alice.

Alice on the other hand, who has lived abroad for years, has come back to Japan and is intent on finding her "Prince of the Hill" whom she had a short encounter with when she became lost as a child. Lost and crying, Alice was met by a kind hearted boy who wiped away her tears and helped her get back home. She never learned his name and was left with just a "handkerchief" to remember him by. As Alice searches for her "Prince of the Hill", Mizuho-chan, now a girl, learns that the girl who ended up taking her first pair of panties or "handkerchief" years before was none other than Alice.

Mizuho-chan then begins to fight her/his conflicting feelings for Alice and her/his happy existence as a girl. Mizuho-chan's lies begin to take a toll on her/him, but (of course) external forces plot to keep them apart. Whether it be Alice's perverted, Mizuho-chan super-fan cousin Fujinomiya-san, a mischievous love rival or meddling best friends everything seems to be against Mizuho-chan.

Once the story gets about halfway through the characters begin showing some real personality and you grow to care for them. There are a lot of laughs and fun moments, but also some psychological insight into Mizuho-chan and Alice's confused, mildly angsty, youthful minds.

Mizuho Ambivalent is a very rewarding read, be it for the comedy, the characters and even the pleasantly drawn art. I walk away satisfied, but also a little sad that I won't get a chance to see these characters again except for re-reads of which there will be many. Mizuho Ambivalent; give it a try. If you like a fun, light-hearted read with (at least for this genre) well developed characters then you won't be disappointed with this. I sure wasn't.

sketch?

Magaka didn't put much thought into the pacing of the story, so some scenes seem erratic, and a few things are out of place... I got the feeling that this manga is like an experiment or a sketch of an inexperienced magaka. It'd be much better to think this one through...
