As a veteran of the genre of genderbenders, I wasn't really expecting anything at all. I was very surprised. The mangaka ventured into the whole monthly period ladies have and how Kai had to undergo feminine moments. Although there was a cliched gag part of Kai running to the MEN'S bathroom and noticing that he had no man organ, this was only one page and was not overly dramatized at all. Plus, the relationship between Kai and his childhood friend is very complex and sincere with a little bit of sweetness at times.
The art on the other hand was at first a bit... Primitive, but it grew onto me and I felt that the art really moved the story along. My heartstrings were played gracefully by the mangaka. I shall eagerly wait for more.
Funny and touching
About the art; it really will grow on you, and the story + characters will make up to it. Eventhough the whole atmosphere is a comical one, fact remains that Tatsuki was the source of Kai's death, the manga handles this guilt really well and some scenes are very touching. In the first chapters, it may seem Kai was the big victim, but Tatsuki had his deal of suffering as well. (continues to read vol5) EDIT Finished! Well, I can only say, this manga has an ending. Though it may be not one you'd wish for, it's a satisfying one and in some way, it makes sense (in it's fantasy genre XD)

So good...too bad no one is scanlating it. Yah the art is really rough, yah the idea is a bit cliche', yah this and yah that. But despite all of that, the story is still really interesting, and it's a shame that it's not as popular as some of the more notable titles in manga, because it really deserves more attention.
Very nicely done.
The setup feels fairly cliche but the execution is done with class on this story. The gender bender character actually has half a brain so I don't feel like wiping my face every other page like in other gender benders. Sadly no active group is translating this series at this moment in time. Here's hoping someone picks this one up.
