This is a story of a group of college-age people who struggle with gender and sexual identity.
Yuki (nicknamed Yoshiki) is a girl, but she is terrible at 'being feminine.' She mostly dresses like a boy and is often mistaken as one. However, she has to wear a skirt and imagine being dominated by a guy in order to masturbate.
Nagao Mikako seems young and innocent, and she uses that apparent innocence to sell her body as a fake 15-year-old. She knows her youthfulness can't last forever, but she enjoys tricking the men. Her friends have no idea of her sexual habits and believe her to be sweet and sheltered.
Aiba Kaito is a pretty good-looking guy, but he wants to be Nagao Mikako. He often dresses as a girl, picking out clothes that mimic Mikako's style. Though he's into cross-dressing, he is still attracted to women.
Will these young adults and their friends be able to handle their 'guilty secrets' and muddle their way through this confusing period of their lives? [tethysdust]

Pretty but Twisted
I'm torn. Interesting (with lovely art), I will give it that. It's not something that's done too often and when it is, it usually is not as convoluted as this.
While I appreciate the idea and variety of characters with real issues, certain aspects of the story are unnecessarily off-kilter (in a scary way). To some, that might spice things up with elemental dramatics, but to me it's more disturbing than dynamic. Half of the characters in this manga are treading a fine line of insanity. And what I'm getting at is, perhaps realistically, each other is not enough to get them the help they need. They all have very troubling issues that seem to have arisen from ordinary experiences - only taking a turn for the very worst in their transition to adulthood.
I get it. This story is all about ego, identity, and acceptance of self. It's showing the most extreme cases and problems of people. But ask yourself if that's what you want. Because a part of me is here for the story and a shrinking part for what the larger concept entails (which is what I think would be nice to see more of).

The authors delivers perfectly the different issues people faces in terms of sexuality and gender roles. I kinda like how the author presents different people with different cases in coming to terms with their inner ego. Personally I know to my self that I'm a girl inside and out but sometimes I just want to be different and try to fulfill my inner urges and touch the same sex. The story is original and I can really relate to the situations each characters face.
Unique, definitely it is
Attractive and crazy, this manga is in the middle of those things. Unique characters, unexpected plot, ... and everything just makes a great manga so far. I myself would choose Mikako for the best character in this manga, even she is quite insane. I think she goes really well with Kaito, and if they become a couple, this manga will be one of the very few mangas I have read where the couple i like end up together.
Good? Neat? No! It's AMAZING!
No manga before had such awesome characters! Whore, crossdresser, and slutty virgin. I love them all (the whore is the best nevertheless). God... I just don't have words to describe how awesome is the story. And even though the pace slows down in later volumes, it by no means is boring. Because of the extraordinary characters, the story never gets old. I can read about their daily life forever.

So far, so good
It's about sex, but it's not meant to be titillating, which is pretty refreshing. It shows a few different characters' individual feelings and interests, giving a hint at a larger picture--that the subject isn't simple. Occasionally things get intense, or even a little disturbing, but it's handled well.
I've only read a little more than a volume of it, but it feels like the characters are going to be well-rounded and interesting, and feel like real people.
I figured this manga would be either ecchi or hentai so I was reluctant to read it but, it's actually quite good, no hentai nor ecchi stuff. I feel like it's gonna be a good manga the whole way through. ( Yuki x Kaito♥ ) -3-
This manga is interesting and worth a read. I enjoy seeing how these people's live play out when their secrets are discovered. I will admit that most of their secrets are actually pretty common. One thing I find odd in the description is why they are going through a "confusing" period of their lives in their 20's? Usually people find out their sexual preferences and such during their teenage years. When I was in college, there wasn't these "confused" people, since most of them already knew what they preferred. They may have kept certain things secret, but they weren't confused. The Japanese seem so sexually repressed when it comes to actual contact with another human. That's why I'm glad I don't live there. People are too reserved and shy. Pretty much any subject to talk about when it comes to their personal lives is taboo. Another thing that bothers me in the unnecessary single quotation marks around the words "being feminine." It's not something that people are unsure that it exists or some loose jargon for a woman who acts lady-like. I can't quite put it into words, but that is wrong. Not only should the quotations be double quotes like I put around the words in question, but those being there at all is incorrect. A girl is either feminine or not. That's just how it goes. Seriously, there are so many of these descriptions that just annoy the hell outta me. It's like a kid is writing most of them. Anyways, there are some parts that I've read so far that bug me, but overall this seems to be a good read so far (only 8 chapters released ATM). Not many seinen series focus on sexual preferences, so this will be a pretty unique read unless you read a lot of josei and/or shoujo. I can't say for sure that this will be a good series since I've seen many that start off good with the first 10 chapters and just go downhill fast. Hopefully, this one with be worth keeping an eye on and reading it in it's entirety.

What a great look at the human psyche. I'm enjoying it a lot. I think sometimes we get so concerned with being PC- how the world should be- and miss what's happening now. These people have issues. They're real issues that happen all the time. It's not often we get a look at something like that.
I like it so far. It has a lot of potential but it feels like the author wrote these as interweaving one shots rather than as a long term story with interweaving character subplots.
I can't say much for it now, since even after six chapters I can't form a solid opinion, but I'll be looking for updates in this series!
