Loved It

I've read the manga multiple times and will buy it if I ever find a physical copy. It's a quick read and not meant to be taken seriously (though anything with aliens including a shirking/growing dude and a Santa competition wouldn't be anyway).

Kamiyama starts off annoying but is a pretty cool dude, and the senpai Tsukiko crushes on pissed me off more. It's very feminist even though it's set in a world so segregated by gender that they literally test boys and girls separately at this school based on what they think boys and girls should be able to do. It deals with sexuality pretty well too, hinting at supposed BL with no one complaining besides those involved, and the supposed GL with Kou and Kaya being hinted at but not explored.

Given a 10 because the art is ugly at times (meant to be for the most part) and beautiful when it means to be. It's not very original but done wonderfully. The hints towards romance are believable and not fully explored, making for great ideas for a fanfic writer like myself. The ending is ambiguous but deserved and pretty idealistic, but really I expected nothing else.

I liked this manga and the gender swapping twins were brilliant but this is one of those manga were the end kinda ruins it for me. So rushed/axed would've love to see more or at least a few loose ends tied( preferably a few red strings tied -_-), but no what could have been really great turned into something somewhat average time filler.

I really liked the plot of this manga.

Normally you see a gender bender of either a male/female, but this one is really nice as it features both a male crossdressing as a female and vice-versa. The second one not being common enough. (Why?! It's such a good idea, LOL)

Anyway even though it was axed, I really liked it to the end.
Somewhere along the way I wanted Tsukiko to end up with Kamiyama. (Ahahaha)

Anyway it's recommended if you like comedy and gender-benders.

I'm quite partial to genderbending manga since they attempt to deviate from the cliches and tropes associated with males and females respectively. However, the male in this shows very cliche feminine mannerisms and tropes associated with female characters (he enjoys activities like cooking, is timid, delicate and not physically strong, etc.) and likewise for the female character who exhibits all the strong, brash tropes associated with typical shounen male leads. This sort of defeated the point of having a genderbend in the first place IMO. However, despite this weakness, this manga is still a lighthearted and comedic read with an absurd yet entertaining plot at heart. I still found it quite enjoyable.

Even though it's been axed, the ending is still perfectly wrapped up by the mangaka, and there aren't any major loose ends hanging. Like other reviewers have mentioned, it doesn't feel like a conclusive sort of ending, but at least all the major conflicts and whatnot were solved, so don't let that stop you from starting this great manga.

Probably the first thing that comes to mind when you finish reading is, "wait, it's ended?!" To be honest, the ending was so rushed it could easily have simply been the start of the next arc rather than a real conclusion to the whole story.

Nevertheless, the series showed promise throughout and engaged us with vibrant humour, not least the whole gender-swapping twins and confusion of everyone else around them. It had potential to go much further, though.

Some of it is just rediculous but overall i like it. The main leads roommate is annoying though. I like Tomoa better when hes not acting like an imbecile. I love the twins and Mariri. Its a good manga but dont expect it to be amazing.

Pretty average as it is now...using the same plot over and over again...
Using the same gags, it really feel's like im reading the same chapter every single time.
Seriously, this manga has disapointed me...

This series is absolutely amazing!!! I am in love with it. The plot is a little cliche but the characters totally make up for it with the humor. I just wish there was some more depth to the characters but maybe it'll be better when more chapters are updated!!!! biggrin

So I just found out that there are only four more chapters left! ONLY 25?!?! NO!! I'm extremely pissed D:<
