Description
A romantic comedy with a distinctly Japanese flavor. Next-door neighbors Chiro and Ritsu have been best friends since childhood. Ritsu, the son of a family of traditional nichibu dancers, is thrust into the public eye as his career takes off, and his growing fame begins to test the pair’s friendship. And now the twist: when a wish made at a shrine actually comes true, Chiro and Ritsu find themselves inhabiting each others’ bodies. A further complication arises because Ritsu is not just a dancer, he is a famous onnagata, or female impersonator, popularly known as the “Courtesan Prince.”

SO CUTE

It's become one of my favorites! Right next to Kamisama Hajimemashita! It's such a cute plot. Cute, innocent and light. Hardly any angst and evil people. The drawings are great, the character development is good but it can be just a tad bit slow. But other than that, it's hilarious!

Because her drawing is unmistakable!

The story progresses at great speed with great pace that it reminds me of how I loved Koucha Ouji. Yamada Nanpei's stories are those I can absolutely never hate anything or anyone inside. I didn't get really work up with the first few chapters but as far as I've read till the 23rd available online scanlation, I couldn't stop. It's just so slice-of-life, the type that I whole heartedly love. It's easy going yet still gets you fascinated while avoids any unnecessary irritation.

I enjoyed Koucha Ouji greatly so it was quite natural for me to look at possible identicalities in Orange Chocolate. Yet, I found none. Sure, if you are extremist, you'll find somewhat similarities between the personalities of the characters, or most that evolves around school-life. Nevertheless, every character stands out in the crowd, being true to their individualities. Their developments are not outstanding or prominent like some polar-stronghead or -weakwilled. For certain, they are superb and affirmed to whatever they believe. That adamant faithfulness and consistency are what I really treasure. Moreover, the "childhood friendship love" theme really captures my appreciation.

At the moment, I have nothing but excitement for the next chapters of the series. Oh, actually, I have TWO THINGS I'm a bit concerned:
1. Chiro's head is getting kind of funny. The shape. But she's still cute though XD
2. Both Koucha Ouji and Orange Chocolate are being, sadly, underrated sad Maybe it is my taste. But hey, I go for it the whole way! smile I hope more and more people will find the beauties in Yamada Nanpei's works in the future smile

I'll be updating XD

This is SUPER cute, first chapters are a bit text heavy but if you stick with it, it's awesome shoujo. If you want a light read and aren't opposed to the body swap mechanic, by all means read it! The emotions are awesomely portrayed and the fox deities get pretty cool.

I love this so much. it leaves me with giggles and warm feelings :3 the art is sooo nice and I absolutely love the characters.

I love the relationship between chiro and ricchan. it's not the kind where you want to bang yourself on the wall because both sides don't seem to realize their feelings for each other. in fact it's the opposite. their relationship makes you go awwwe and want to read more biggrin at least it does for me.

Very Cute!~

While the main girl is considered beautiful in an cute airheaded way (but NOT stupid), the guy is appears more short-tempered, down-to-earth and socially awkward (yet still good-looking, of course laugh ).
Unlike many childhood series, the two are still very close older, and are comfortable hugging and holding each other's arms in public (in a platonic way wink ). All this also makes for a unique and incredibly cute relationship not commonly seen.

On the body-switching aspect, I like how they only switch body when one of them begins to think they want to be the other, which cause often cause interesting and funny results. biggrin

Overall, this manga has a very pleasant atmosphere with a likable cast. There isn't really any serious drama either, as the only problems as of yet are mostly caused by the main characters genderbending themselves. laugh

Seems good, so far...

It's interesting so far. We have a slightly vain and bubbleheaded but hard working female lead, as well as a handsome, short tempered pretty boy who cross-dresses. I bet four virtual pieces of fudge that they'll end up together, and 1 virtual cookie for the same of their big sister and big brother, respectively. XD
I like the twist the manganka used to make them only switch when one of them wants to be the other one. That'll definitely make things interesting... <3 And loving Ritsu's gruff-but-protective nature over Chiro! biggrin

Anyway, I'm definitely interested, and want to see where this's going.
