Not a 'feel-good' manga!   
Rating: 3.0 / 10.0

I'm not fan of the art but I can overlook that for a good plot.
The story is sweet and all but lacks depth as well as character depth, too.

I didn't really like the Japanese seme, who just goes with it and sleeps with the boy, and then says ridiculous things like "This body belongs to someone else, you can't just decide to keep it!"
How about you also tell the boy "and oh hey, I violated the body you should return to!"

I don't get the message in this manga... all that happens, Hinata falls for Al and all, just to have this ending? Terrible ending, it's depressing, frustrating and you can't help feel bad for Hinata, who is heartbroken and also returned to a molested body!

In short, this manga wasn't for me. It had nothing I look for, no deep plot, no likable characters, good art or exciting storytelling... it was okay to read however the ending leaves me feeling frustrated.
Don't read it if you wanna feel good or have a happy ending!
Also no need to read it if you want really handsome men and hot smut either...

Honestly, it started out pretty good. I had really wanted Sashir and Hinata to meet up sooner, and in fact I wanted the person in Hinata's body to have told Kagaya the truth from the beginning so that they could maybe switch back faster? I don't know... I guess I kind of wanted to see the Real Hinata with Kagaya...

It was a really weird reading...

I am soo mad.
The story was actually really good and I was enjoying it. The heated romance the two boys were having in each other's bodies was great.
And then the end...
They switched back and said their goodbyes. All those romantic scenes, gone.
It was like some kind of horrific joke. Like the mangaka had intended to completely waste my time and laugh it off at the end.

Don't read.

good premise, dull execution

that had potential, but ended up mere fluff. no character development, no relationship development, nothing done with the intriguing idea of switching bodies. hinata is the type of clumsy, dumb uke that some people find "cute", but i never find stupidity cute. the prince was sexy in that dark, forceful, dangerous way, but i didn't like him. only the ending saved this from being totally uninspiring -- i favour that particular resolution, even though it doesn't leave everyone happily ever after.

the art is competent and attractive-looking, it just is for some reason not my cup of tea. i need to think more about why that is so; can't put my finger on it.

Fun Story, Sparkly Art But Lacks Character Development   
Rating: 9.0 / 10.0

I love the sparking eyes of Hinata and his blonde lookalike! And the Prince! The art of the dark-eyed, tanned Al is beautiful, magnetic and powerful, whether he is in traditional garb or modern-day garb.

The story is fun and fantastical. The sex scenes between the Prince and his lover(?) were particularly well done if--like me--you like the dub-con and whips...hee. The angst could have been played up a bit more.

The actual motivation, emotions, choices and actions of all four main characters were under-developed and fairly flat. This story had a lot going for it, including the concept of one soul seperated into two by a crash. The motivation could be there; the choices and emotions all could definitely be completely understandable, but--although intrigued--I wasn't convinced with only volume 1. I liked the bitter sweet ending to volume 1 because it--strangely--played more into the believability. The sequel is something I would definitely read if it is ever scanlated or licensed in English. Perhaps it will make the first volume's mere hints of depth prove to lead somewhere important.

bad ending

Spoiler (highlight to view)
i liked Hinata although he wasnt so smart =) but i hated Seshir, who soi calmly slept with some other guy even though he already had a boyfriend that he loved. I felt bad for Al, he was so devoted to Seshir, but Seshir betrayed him so easily. i hated the ending because hinata sincerely loved Al, and yet seshir and Al ended up together, i didnt really see the ending as realistic, but i guess its foolish to look for realism when you're reading a book about the souls of two boys interchanging between them.
