Yoshikawa sensei's 2012 is shining bright ! She has never failed me! Quite a good first chapter! And I know it's gonna be good throughout the series. Why? If you have read Yankee kun to megane chan, then you will get the answer... Hiro mashima sensei (fairytail) , your former assistant is doing good! biggrin

Body switching is nothing new in manga, but I feel like the dynamics going on in this manga is awesome. Only 1 chapter is scanlated so far, but it was hilarious. The funniest part was when he didn't know he was being bullied. I wish they would have built on that concept more. The funniest moments happen in misunderstandings and unexpected reactions.

Great manga so far, looking forward to more.

Great laughs

I'm impressed. I tried reading quite a bit of the mangaka's previous work and was pretty damn bored but this one has some great laughs. The supernatural aspect isn't actually that important right now, it's not that far in, though.

EDIT: moving this up to a 10 because I'm constantly happy to see a release.
EDIT 2: The supernatural part is a lot more prominent when the second witch is introduced, in case the lack of was something that put you off.

imo, the series would've left me happy if it ended after
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Yamada and Shiraishi got together
b/c honestly, all the chapters afterwards feel dull, episodic. Kind of as if the mangaka doesn't know where the story should go next but wants to drag out the series as long as possible. Sure, there are still unanswered questions left, but I feel that even the mangaka doesn't know the answers yet, seeing how the current chapters seem disorganized and doesn't flow as well as the earlier chapters.

I used to rate this series an 8 and thought this was a pretty good shounen with the ecchi/harem done in good tastes. Now, I can't say the same.

Great rom com   
Rating: 9.0 / 10.0

This manga delivers everything I look for in a rom com: loads of comedy, slow romance. The art is nice, especially character's expression, which make the comedy funnier, and the romance more convincing. I can literally see how and when Shiraishi and Yamada
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
fall deeper and deeper in love with each other (one of the earliest example was when they kissed for the 2nd/3rd time, Yamada looked completely swept off his feet, in both his male AND female form xD )
. Yamada's way of thinking are so unpredictable, and unique that his words and actions keep throwing me into surprises after surprises. Shiraishi immediately captured me with a healthy mix of tsun- kuu- and dere- moment, plus she can actually think and reason, really well! The support cast is also very interesting and has their moment of brilliance/hilarity. It must be just me, but female shounen mangaka (If you haven't known it, yes, this manga's author is a chick!) have a knack for great characterization.

The powers are all very well thought out, as the characters exploit the magical and personal powers in their arsenal very extensively. And they're not afraid to try weird application of their powers, either. The characters also realise the power of information pretty early, and actively work for it, through experiment, theorizing, and investigation, thus giving a lot of relevance to the "power-less" characters. While they're not at the level of a thriller/detective manga, they're refreshing to read, especially if you're tired of all the "power level" races in shounen manga that would write off "low level" character as irrelevant.

If you're into shoujo, don't be put off by the shounen tag, this manga would fit nicely into both the shounen and shoujo demography

Greatly recommend for all fans of romance, comedy, light fantasy, or all of them!

A different kind of shounen manga and shounen male protagonist

Good thing they remove the gender bender tag lol XD. seriously though, i was hesitating to read this manga cause at first it has a gender bender tag lol. but as i read on, damn that was a first. a body swapping ability with good laughs and execution for comedy and since the romance part hasn't developed yet at this early stage. although this is not your usual shounen male protagonist. Yamada is unlikely different from other shounen male protagonist. he's not your usual cliche protagonist if not more than the usual protagonist. the plot's good, concept's of executing the romance and comedy are out of this world lol, unexpected reaction, and so forth. this manga is different from your usual shounen manga and i certainly recommend it for good laughs although the romance part is still on the early stage, i'm dying to know how the hell he has that kind of ability lol XD

I thot it was pretty good and funny, but the part i was stuck on was that the teachers looked exactly like shinagawa and chiba from her previous work yankee-kun to megane-chan. It really might be them since in the end of yanmega i heard shinagawa became a teacher at his old highschool, but isnt this a different school. Whatever the case i hope its them and that they can explain wat happend to shinagawa and adachi in the end since the mangaka left a HUGE open ending to yanmega.

On volume 11
It gives you the same vibe as Yanki-kun to Megane-chan. Like Yanki-Kun the main protagonist is a male, and everything revolves around him. The female (Shiraishi) potential love, at first, plays a big part and then just sits in the peripheries. This is pretty much, like Yanki-Kun. Is it romance? If it is, it does not do a good job of it. Romance is just a sidenote and it really does not develop it unless you call random kissing of people and blushing a romance development. You can tell he fancies her in the first few chapters and, you think she does but she is so impassive and dispassionate its hard to tell; after you a few chapters Yamada-Kun goes on about his antics with other more pronounced characters with Shiraishi in the background. This pretty much also sums up Yanki-Kun. Even the damn characters between the two mangas are very similar, both in looks and behaviours. The author is just repeating the same formula and like Yanki-Kun, it seems it is heading nowhere. Should have ended at volume 11.

The art is good but you cannot tell the characters apart. All the male faces look too similar, and you can only tell them apart due to hair colour or accessory like a toothpick. Females, at least have huge varying styles of hair. A few females (including Shiraishi) do resemble Lucy Heartfilla which is a plus. Like the show, "I love Lucy".

There are two translations out there. "Mangaholic-MahouX" up to volume 7 and the official CrunchyRoll which is doing the whole series. Personally I found "Mangaholic-MahouX" has a much more fluid and funnier translation. It also has more profanity which just works better and certain instances makes the comedy funnier. The switch from MM to CR is not much of a leap.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
The powers are curses that fall randomly onto dejected students. So these powers takes their dejection and amplify them. It is not hard to imagine that these powers have caused several suicides in the past and I do believe that was the ultimate goal of the powers; to cull the student population.

Shiraishi has been a monotone character until the point she just starts crying out of nowhere. That just didn't sit well with her character at all. She was a doll that allowed others to (ab)use her body without a single care.

One of the BEST Romantic Comedy I have EVER read!

Great story, great characters, awesome character development, even more awesome inter-character development smile
And funny to boot.
If you think the summary sounds cliche, then you'd be wrong; the content is totally fresh. No tiring tropes. Every chapter gets you hooked and you just. can't. stop. reading!
I feel ashamed to have ignored this one out the first time I knew about it.

It is unlike the typical romcoms around.
Fanservice is kept to a minimum and they're not senseless or 'cheap' (If that's what worries you).
One other thing I appreciate is the unbiased number of males in this manga; usually romcoms have a guy-to-girl ratio of like 1:10 or so, but this manga has more or less equal guys and girls, which is kinda refreshing.

Yoshikawa Miki-sensei is one of my top favourite mangakas right now.

This and The World God Only Knows are two of my top favourite romcoms.
Also, this needs an anime.
(There's already a great promo PV of it on youtube though).

As Jason Thompson from ANN said, "it's a fun, funny, and surprisingly clever magical rom-com".
I agree COMPLETELY.
(As a consequence of reading his ANN article, I just realized Crunchyroll has a new manga service, with Yamada-kun to 7-nin no Majo as one of its titles. The killer here is that their titles are SIMULTANEOUSLY RELEASED SAME TIME AS JAPAN.
They are 5-6 chapters ahead of what Mahou-x & Mangaholic are offering as of this writing...So I'm extremely tempted to subscribe there now.)

Addicting, Suspensful, Hilarious, & Satisfying   
Rating: N/A

I love absolutely everything about this manga. The art style is spectacular (emphasis on each character's facial expressions), the plot is fast-paced, nice fanservice (yes, I am female...), and the romance is overall satisfying yet keeps you at the edge. Each character is so unique and likable; no cutboard cutout characters - with some exceptions but Yoshikawa plays it off so well, you don't really give a damn. You can't help but be attached. When I first read this series, I spent a good 16 hours reading all the chapters (about 64 back then) and there was no place I could stop and take a break; this is a page turner. As of now, I'm impatiently waiting for Chapter 73 (but I very, VERY much appreciate the translators) to the point where I'm having dreams about reading the new updates...call me crazy, but this series is so addicting and suspenseful that it gave me a new appreciation to Romantic Comedy (with a touch of fanservice) manga.

Overall, I'm proud to say that I'm stuck on this series.
