Description
Just before entering the university, Yanagiba Masahiko's father died in a car accident. His mother died when he was four, which makes him now really an orphan. But even before the death of his father, he didn't have a family life, as his father was always busy or abroad.

When his mother's younger brother and his wife decide to invite him to live with their family, his life takes a turn. But it is not going to be the normal family life he is imagining for himself. What is the "terrible" secret that led his parents to break the bonds with his aunt and uncle? What could be the true nature of his cousin, Shion? And last but not least, will this "terrible" secret eventually get Yanagiba, too?

Overall I think its got a solid story, although the emotion can be a bit overdone at times. Read it if you'd like a well-drawn and comedic example of the gender bender genre.

Love the story, love the main characters but hate the ending. Read only if you want a good gender bender slice of life manga with good comedic elements. Otherwise stay out cause this series resolves nothing, nothing at all. Be in for a disappointment if you are here for everything but comedy.

What makes a person a man? a woman?
What creates and sustains a family?
Not that this manga answers these questions but makes you think about what answers there possibly are.
Humor is good too.

Overall, this book has everything from being blackmailed to cross dress, to dealing with a Yakuza boss that is chasing the main character, to the main character trying to figure his cousin out. I personally have enjoyed this series so far. It is very funny at times and it can be very moving at times since it deals with a sensitive subject through out the story. In all honesty if you reservations on GBLT type backdrops for the story, you may not enjoy. If you read with a open mind living all biases behind, it is an amazing and fun story.

I caught myself rofling many times while reading the scanlated chapters !! It is quite enjoyable!

As far as the mangaka's "fashion sense" is concerned, well if you took your time to check the publication date, you'd see it's the late 90's.. For those who remember, that's how they were dressing themselves that time around..

A nice surprise overall. Plenty of comedy with solid dramatic backdrop. Although the theme of this manga is rather... controversial. Expect a love-or-hate relationship with this title.

This manga I started reading long ago, but just finished recently. As I read I liked and wanted to continue reading, but as I went on I felt the manga continue to be stretched and losing it's appeal. It all culminated on a rushed ending with an open end without resolving much. In the end It is hard to recommend to someone looking for a good manga, but if you are without any good options this is not an horrendous manga, just unfulfilling.

I'm quite disappointed with the whole series. I've read the 14 vols in French version and had to skip the last volume. The only good part is that the series deals with the issues of gender bender quite well. However, the romance part is quite dissapointing. Also the main character is quite immature and the romance between the two main characters doesn't develop at all in the whole series. If you're looking for romance, don't bother about it.

Wew, yet another great series from Hojo sensei (i dunno but his name keep reminding me of a bird pokemon, hoho or something, lol).
I started this series up after picking up 2 other marvelous works City Hunter and Angel Heart of Hojo sensei. To my surprise, this series was entirely different to the others, But it still got me hooked, and now i'm really in thirst for new chapters. \
Arr how come his series are all "uncompletedly" scanslated? *sob*
