Liked the plot

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.

Untapped Potential

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:<

seriously, read this. even if u dont usually like gender benders, this is so amazing!! i absolutely love this manga. its one of those that have me searching the web for hours looking for more, just in case someone has actually scanlated it. the characters fit their switched-gender roles really well, but the author has them switch bk to their original gender every other chapter, so u never rly forget that shes actually a girl and he's rly a guy. read!!!

Although they are true to some extent, give this manga a chance and I guarantee that most people will like it. Just by reading the first chapter you can tell that this will be a good manga. The art is nice, the characters are funny and the humor is great. What more do you want from a comedy?
