I really don't get the point of this manga. Is it really that big of a deal for a boy to change into a girl, and have to live out their life as a girl? About half the world is female, whats the big deal? Is it really that horrible? So he's not as strong physically as he would have been, and 'she' is probably going to find herself attracted to guys now. Again, I don't see the point.

Having said this though, I'm still interested in reading the story. At least to see how it develops.

First, this is one of the few gender transformation stories that is not focused on sex and is also not focused on fanservice (although it does have some down the road). I'm picking up this series as my first cleaning, proofreading, and typesetting job. I'm not sure what the group I'm in will be called as of now (I'm leaving that up to the translator, Pixee). From what I've read of the third chapter and seen in the later untranslated chapters, the story picks up a bit.

Of course, if you're looking for another Gatcha Gatcha or Pretty Face where the main character isn't very girly and is merely swept up in various events, you'll probably want to look elsewhere. The main character does act girly (without meaning to) and does try to embrace the reality that he is now a she. That's probably one of the reasons this is a seinen with slice of life elements. I won't spoil any of the plot with my predictions. I'd just give the story a chance before throwing it away.

A 'generic' genderbender manga, boy changes into girl for some unknown (or unexplained) reason.
After reading the first two chapters, I'm still unsure what the point of this manga is. There is no comedy or anything even remotely funny, some minor hinting at romance but as I see it nothing original or special, and the 'supernatural' is only used as a premises, luckily no ecchi or fanservice... finally.
Yes, this could be considered a gender-bender... but the story only hints at the main character being previously male. (S)he is even introduced as a female character.... So it's a gender-bender story that begins (a while?) after being gender-bendered.

I will not continue reading this manga for one sole reason, not sure if it's a translation 'error' (reading the english scanlation)
- "Stop being a wuss!"
- "I can't help it, I'm a girl now" (being serious)
.... and this made me lose all interest. What is it with people stereotyping girls/woman as weak and inferior beings (especially when gender-bendered from male)... It's one thing to do this in a stupid shounen/ecchi manga (where these things sadly can be expected)... but in a Seinen?
Maybe a silly thing to be hung up about, but I'm getting sick and tired of seeing the same thing over and over again (girls are weak, men are perverts). Please think of something original for once.
