Description
From VIZ:

Seiji Sawamura is the toughest seventeen-year-old in town, feared by all for his fighting prowess and his deadly "devil's right hand." But at heart, Seiji is a softy, and all he wants is an end to his seventeen-year history of being a lonely single guy. Unfortunately his tough-guy reputation only serves to decrease his popularity with the ladies. But what happens when one day, his right hand becomes a girl?!

I finished this in one sitting [....yeah].
I loved this. The character development in the manga is amazing, and so was the development of Midori and Swamura's relationship. I really liked the different aspects of the characters and how super lovable they were (I kinda wanted to squish Kouta every time I saw him. Too bad that'll never happen _ _). Plus, they're all so funny =]
I did wish Midori would have remembered, but the fact she didn't took this manga to a whole to level for me. And for some reason, I loved the second to last page, with all the main-secondary characters (lol). Maybe it was because how simply and frankly what happened to them was shown (aha, hard to explain). And the one scene where Ayase cries under the street lamp - I just, I dunno, it really touched me. I don't get that moved very often either.
So I know Sawamura isn't a hardcore bishie or anything (since a smokin' bishie is the kind of character I usually remember =.=;;) but I LOVED him. I love his awkward yet sweet charm, and he had his swoon-inducing moments too, IMHO. He was such a cute guy. I liked Miyahara too, he cracked me up.

Ok, well, I was really easy with my ratings when I first joined, and now I realise a ten should be impossible, but this manga touched a lot of my emotions and it never dragged...it also made me lmao and feel bad and made me all happy, too. So....a 9.5 sounds good. Because in addition to everything I said, seriously, how the heck do you get a plot like that? It's so unique (and hilarious. and addicting.) I've never seen anything like it. I love the art and how each important character is developed. I agree that Inoue-sensei has seen the God of manga~ lol.

I don't often read this type of manga (I'm 27 and read mostly seinen type stuff), but I happened to catch the anime on a Animax (local cable anime channel), and thought it was funny.

I then stumbled upon the manga on one of the 'online viewing' sites. It's much better. The anime only features 20 odd chapters from mostly the earlier volumes, so there was much more laughing to be had. It's a light read for those times I don't wanna get mind-f**ked from the psychological/mature stuff I usually read.

Cheers!

A funny yet touching story about a boy who wants to be loved and a girl who runs away from her life. They comedy adds to the story and makes it a great read. Even the ending was good!

I read this in about 2 or 3 days and I would have to say it was a day well spent. Non-stop laughter from the beginning to the end. The plot is somewhat funky, but it really shows character improvement. The ending was truly truamatic and touching, so I would have to say that the author has done a superb job of himself. Pick up at stores, or better yet download it off the net.

Man I truly regret having skipped this title for so long, I remember reading the premise a loooong time ago when the scans first released and thinking to myself that it was going to be a generic shonen-romcom. But boy I was wrong, because this series is funny as hell.

First, there isn't one character I particularly dislike here. At worst, I'd be indifferent to a character, like the twin tail elementary girl or the american girl, but most of the time I found myself getting attached to all of the characters. They're just so likable, especially the MC and the girl on his hand, they're two characters that really have nice chemistry.

This is very close to what I'd consider a near-perfect romantic comedy, the progression of their romance flows very very well and although the ending is left a tiny bit too open to interpretation for my taste, the progression of the story leading up to the end was just that good to cover up the okay ending.

A very strong 8/10

Saw the anime first. Loved it. Then, read the manga. Loved it even more.

The synopsis was something different and caught my attention but it was the characters who really managed to retain my interest. They were genuinely funny especially Kouta. Main character Seiji is likable enough as a misunderstood delinquent who is suddenly thrown into funny, awkward and many a times emotional situations with Midori, Kouta, Ayase and various other character. Though this kind of character has been done to death by now. There was great character developments as well even for someone as minor as that weak henchman of Seiji who always manages to get himself kidnapped.

Ending was good too. Feels bad for certain someone but such is life.

Well drawn, and as I said above, it has all the qualities of a shoujo manga. Well, also had some light spiced scenes.
Spoiler (highlight to view)
I wish it was shown their development after Midori comes back to her body, but, oh well, I think it's due to you to imagine it...
The characters grow as the story goes by and
Spoiler (highlight to view)
it is funny to see Sawamura love develop little by little.

As someone noticed before Midori/Sawamura story is really short if you consider that lots of chapters is to tell us their friends' stories.
In summary, a good soft reading.
