Disappointing

This is probably problem on my side and not the manga... but I was expecting something completely different after the description. I thought the prince would be a much more cooler and capable person, instead of a wimp = =. Completely took me by supprise that he's actually the protagonist and not his brother.

With that said, I didn't manage to even finish chapter 1. Aside from my own biased expectations, I can't say much else. I have no say in whether this manga is good or bad.

I like this manga, it's kinda odd and a little strange at the beginning but as you continue to read it, it gets better and better. I like this kind of story line because you don't see it all the time, it's funny and makes you want to read more. I can't wait to read more so I hope they update soon ^.^ and I hope that I can by it soon to own. I reccommend this comic to those who don't mind the comic being a little odd. lol

I still can't understand how it's possible for writer of Dolls and diece to write THIS. There are just so many cliches, the plot is dumb, I feel really disappointed, I was hoping for something better. I was already kind of surprised that they were doing romance manga, but I never thought it will be so bad. TT^TT

I really like this! It has a great plot, and great art. However, I wish that they'd update the chapters quicker cause I really can't wait. From the comments I read people didn't seem to like it, but I really do. Can't wait to read more. However, I am pretty sure Ayato is going to be a girl because it does say shoujo, but I don't know. Anyways... LOVE THIS!

The premise to this story is interesting but it lacks in every other way. I would've assumed that the main character was female if I wasn't constantly reminded that Ayato was genderless. Ayato has secured the role of a woman from the start. I've read up until the most recent chapter and the mangaka has yet to introduce possible female love interests. All of the love interests are males so Ayato will officially become female in the end. That brings me to my next point, why even have the genderless curse when really nothing interesting is being done with it? The story can be told without it. The whole thing seems like a cheap attempt at fanservice to be honest, but either way this manga is still a boring, cliche, harem manga. The only redeeming quality about this manga is that the art is exceptional, but that can only take you so far.

A Genderless Crown Prince who can only be one gender depending on the member of the opposite sex that he/she has fallen in love with.

The art's an eye candy, it can potentially be a harem manga where the main lead has both male and female love interests. I had so many expectations from this.

But then, I shouldn't expected more from a shoujo oriented manga. It's swarming with lots of lots of cliches.

Spoiler (highlight to view)
Cliche #1- The 'Forced Kiss'
Every bishies want to kiss him [The crown prince]. Apparently, his body gives out flower scents that attracted both sex. Especially the males.

Cliche #2 'It's fine if a Bishie sexually molest you.'
The main bishie never fails to do this everytime he makes an appearence.

Cliche #3- 'Everyone will fall in love with the main lead'
The only twist is that the main lead is a genderless Crown Prince who acts like a whiny girl. Well technically, the mangaka has decided that 'straight' bishies will swarm over him with kisses. And ofcourse, you wouldn't be surprised to see one of them attempt to touch his flat chest and his 'small' penis to check if he's really a female. LOL.

Cliche #4- 'Master Servant Relationship'

Cliche #5- 'Beauty Transformation'.
Spectacles work wonder in making people less attractive and barely recognizable!

Cliche #6- 'Meganneko Stalker'
And yes, she's actually beautiful without her spectacles

Cliche #7- 'Unwanted Harem'
Sure. But it's a male orientated harem. For all I know, this 'Genderless' crown prince should have been made as a 'Princess' from the start. It doesn't make a difference, no wonder his penis literally shrunk.

Cliche #7- 'Cheesy romantic one-liners'
..to the point of hillarity and occasional *roll eye-ing* from the readers.

Cliche #8- 'Romantic subplot'
You'd be pleasantly surprised to see the little cousin meets a hot long hair bishie who happened to be her newly transferred sensei? *chuckles*

Cliche #9- 'Incest subtext'?
Meh..Just my own impression. or is it intentional for the mangaka to do this?

Cliche #10- 'Fangirls'
You gotta have fangirls if it's a shoujo highschool with bishies in it.

I'm impressed how the mangaka has incorporated so many cliches into this manga. It's just like a typical harem ecchi manga with random pantyshots and different types of 'love interests' trying to get into the main lead's pants [not literally].ONLY that, Magnolia is a true epiphany of a reverse harem manga,but, with a twist.. he's a genderless crown prince..surrounded by sexually confused bishies! What more can a reader want?

The art is really good sometimes, but its inconsistent. The storyline is interesting but the author wrote it poorly, and Ayato is way too girl for my tastes. If he's a boy he shouldnt be blushing like that, so kinda weird.

edit: actually, with all the silly cliches and whatever, it still makes me fangirl squeal. but thats because i have a thing for...close family relations...

This is basically a boring harem manga with pretty art. So i guess read it if you just like eye candy but the storyline is nothing special...

This is an amazing read, it encaptures the emotions of the characters amazingly and its not the average dramatic shoujo romance, it has a story behind it, making you want to read more, not making you wonder when you'll finish the page. The art isnt the best, but above average (the eyes could be worked on) but aside from that, its on the upper end.

Read at least the first two chapters before you judge it, because this is just a great manga to read ^_^! It'll have you craving for more though. No rating untill I've read more, but its probably on an 8.
