Description
On her death bed, Kousaku Sakamoto's mother tells him that after she dies, he should go to Tokyo where he'll be taken care of by her friend Ibari Oozora and his family. Since his father died three years before and with no where else to go, Kousaku decides to go along with his mother's last request. However, he soon discovers that Ibari is the boss of the Oozora Group mob ring. Uneasy about his predicament, he considers leaving, but he has second thoughts when he meets Ibari's four daughters–Tsugumi, Tsubame, Suzume and Hibari–only to find out that Hibari is actually Ibari's only son. Now Kousaku must not only cope with living among mobsters but also with refusing Hibari's advances toward him.

Conflicting feelings, but still progressive

Stop!! Hibari-kun! is an odd gem, being both incredibly progressive for trans characters in manga and also more than a little bit insulting towards them. See, Hibari's considered a point of hilarity in that she behaves as she does and looks like she does while being a boy, and is treated with disdain by her family for being sick in the head or what have you. This is the perception of outside characters towards her. But in herself Hibari is presented as not only incredibly beautiful, but confident in her identity and unwilling to compromise. I think on this level Hisashi knew what he was doing, trying to have the best of both worlds, creating jokes around how Hibari's identity affects others, but making sure to never make it that what Hibari is should actually be considered as wrong. And for a series from the 1980s that's INSANELY good. It's not perfect, but it's pretty damn close.

I watched the anime first, being introduced to it by the fact that its theme song is a sort of small meme. It's really cute and funny, but I thought it was disappointing that, despite falling in love with hir at first sight, Kohsuka completely drops his feelings the moment he finds out Hibari's a boy. I also really didn't like how Hibari's family considered him sick in the head and were always trying to get him to change, but this is 1980s Japan for you. A cute read if you're not going to look too hard into it.
