So people have gone crazy about how 'great' this manga is and I couldn't help but feel curious how it differs from Okane ga nai like others have said. Quite a lot I must admit, so much so that it seems the majority of yaoi readers had been fooled to think this is a good manga. Yes it's considerably BETTER than the original series, but certainly no where near great, maybe average at best. The clichéd story is already boring enough, while the mediocre characters that fall in love for no reason doesn't help at all with their exaggerated reactions and dull development. Even the humour is of bad taste. Maybe only the improved artwork has a bit of merit. Problem is there's no shota non-con here like Okane ga nai so all of a sudden people think consensual sex = great love story. No, wake up please.

As someone who is terrified of trying Okane ga Nai, I tried this fully prepared to drop it if things got weird/ too intense to enjoy. To my surprise this is really really good!! It was just a really interesting read and by the final chapter I was actually curious enough to try it's mother manga. I like the comedy and the characters and wouldn't have minded if it continued for longer.

I cannot express how much I love this manga. I hate hate hate hate Okane ga Nai with every fiber of my being. But this story is just wonderful and I love that it deals with identity issues and how we see ourselfs. Plus it's very funny.

I really like this manga a lot...
I like how Honda accepts Someya for who he is, without pretense and doubt...

I really wish that this series continues because this is soooooooooo good!!!!
even though its a spin off from okane ga nai, this story has depth and meaning..
It's a totally different story and can be considered seperate and independent...
I can really empathize with the characters...
It gives the lovey-dovey feeling, like when you're first love comes...

I really liked the story; really funny with a splash of a sad past. I could have skipped the latter and have only focus on the humor part, but it was surprisingly good manga. The characters are both two strong and stubborn males so that was refreshing.

I thought I'd give this a shot even though I absolutely loathe okane ga nai. It was definitely better by far, but still thoroughly average. Although we get to learn a bit about Someya's past, there isn't much to it and we don't get to know much else about him, nor are we told much of anything about Honda. The characters themselves are flat and although I don't find them horribly off-putting(like with okane ga nai), I don't find them particularly interesting or appealing either. The story is forced and unrealistic, without much else to offer in terms of entertainment. I did not connect with the characters nor do I understand how or why they fell in love. Just not my cup of tea, but it wasn't the worst thing I've ever read and it was nice to see that there was no rape or shota-esque boys being abused.

I absolutely detested Okane ga Nai, but surprisingly this spin off was not so bad.
There was no rape or wimpy/cry-baby characters here.
But the reader has to keep in mind that Someya is not transgendered; he cross-dresses as way of expressing himself.

Although the ending was just like that. Haha! But it's a nice read! Although I haven't read Okane ga Nai, I did watched it but watching and reading is a bit different so I'll try reading it next time! xD
Anyway, this manga was okay, the characters are lovable and I fully understand what was going on, unlike some yaoi manga. But it's good!

PS: Very pretty "okama" I say! x3 Liked the dresses!

This manga is like a punch to the heart at times. It doesn't hold back on emotional intensity and is breathtakingly bold and direct in delivering its message. It's a shame that it's a spin-off of Okane ga Nai, a series that's associated with rape and the wimpy character of Ayase because Someya and Honda are wonderfully strong, individual characters stuffed to the brim with pride and honour. I never liked Someya much in Okane but he's truly beautiful in this story, a multifaceted conflicted figure who is at times pathetic in his frailty but in some moments is radiant with strength of character and will.

Even for the reader who hasn't read Okane ga Nai, I think this can be read as a standalone manga. Initially there might be some difficulty keeping track of the side characters since the manga assumes that the reader is familiar with them already but they don't appear too often and this story is definitely worth the initial effort.

i like it given on how it gives us a someya that anyone who had already read Okane Ga Nai already like and made an okama that we could like even more with his/her backstory and depth. the art is lovely and i am honestly shocked on how someya as a guy was such a bishie. there are only 2 things i have against this are 1 there wasn't any detail and lack of hot Smex and 2 the series felt like it relied too much on Okane Ga Nai for the set-up of the story which made it not able to be a stand alone reading material. all in all it's still a good read though.
