In Change 123, we meet Motoko, a girl with a very strange problem. In order to cope with her 3 adoptive fathers' incredibly intensive training methods, she developed multiple personalities, each with a different martial specialty. But what happens if none of them can beat her opponent on their own? And what further nugget of wisdom will be imparted by the great Kamen Raider?

Very nice art. Good characters and a decent story... It's entertaining. Hardly the best at that it does, but it makes you smile at times despite the clichés.
Either way, I recommend it.
The most painful
I belive everyone will agree with me that on chapter 40 what Hibiki did to the glasses bad-guy was a little too much, and that the last part was just downright cruel. I was torn between wincing and protecting my crotch and laughing my ass off.
Funny manga with great refernces like Kamen Raider and the girl's three personalities being based on the three original Getter Robo pilots (she even uses Getter 3's judo move at one point early on).
A Great, Exciting Manga
So this was kind of a surprise for me that I ended up liking this as much as I did, during the early chapters there was a few times where I was sure the story was going to start petering off soon and then suddenly I was over halfway through the series. One of the greatest strengthens of this series is the length, it feels long enough that they can have an actual plotlines and story arcs while not being so long that you lose interest. The characters are also one of the story's stronger points, though some of them are a bit shallow they do a good job of making most of the side characters useful and still contributing to the plot. Even the action is well done, the artist does a good job making us feel like some real violence is taking place. This series also succeeds by having a satisfying ending, something which many manga don't manage.
Of course there's some downsides. One of the biggest issues for me is that at times it feels like the romance is pretty shallow. It always bothers me when I don't know exactly why our main characters like each other, it's not like the main couple has NO reason to like each other but I felt like it was one of those "we like each other because we're both attractive people" situations. Also while I do think the ending was satisfying it also came rather abruptly. I think this is another of those mangas that would seriously benefit from an additional volume, or at least a proper epilogue chapter. We don't even get to see what happens with any of the side characters which is kind of a shame. Also while there IS a plotline that runs through the whole manga it often feels kinda disjointed, and they seem to just completely drop some plot threads entirely on occasion.
Overall this is a nice series with some great artwork, an actual plotline and a cast of characters you won't want to murder. There are some story issues but still I had a fun time reading this, I recommend this to anyone who likes boobs and girls fighting.
Something really worth reading
Great art/story/character development. Also lots of cute girls, but this manga also has a deep story, that makes it worth the time reading. Just started reading the 7th volume,but can't wait till the new raws are out, even though a volume is about 180pages long I read more than 1 volume a day when I have the time- I just can't put it down. At the end of volume 6 there was a really funny situation where I nearly LMAO!!! Thanks to the furigana it's easy to read, so if you can,give it a try, it's worth it!
hibiki makes me sprung
It tries a unique approach on a classic cliche of mixing martial arts and boobs, and succeeds simply by being ridiculous and simple. Of course, it won't attract normal people the likes of you and me.
Could have been better
This manga could have been better and I thought it would, but it was disappointing. The main character is a wimp that I would want to kill. He doesn't do anything and I was really hoping he changes but he doesn't. The plot was unique but it was not executed well. The ending was so rushed that argh.... Overall it was good at first but disappointing later on.
Stupid and Silly
If you're looking for a fun manga, with a decent story, then keep looking. If you're looking for a story with lots of gratuitous nudity, panty shots etc, plenty of violence, and you don't mind a moronic story, then this might be ok. Its essentially a fighting manga, without a story. Oh, they throw out some nonsense plot here and there, but its basically all just more excuses for the constant fighting. Nothing else really matters. It does have nice artwork which boosted my rating for it, but its really not worth reading, particularly not more then once.

too many useless male characters
the only thing i hate about this anime is the amount of male characters. im not effing homo i dont need those stupid male characters. what's worse is that they taking so many spaces on the pages. for example, the perverts on the school basically wants the female lead. instead of introducing female characters that helps the harem, you get those stupid male characters. then there's also the adult males, those are the bad points of this manga. its really a pain looking at those stupid characters.
*purely subjective* So, just to see what I was getting myself into, I read all of chapter 1, and chapter 40 from page 30 on. I don't think I'll be reading this series.
It seemed pretty cool after reading the first chapter, but what happens in Ch 40 was probably the worst thing the mangaka could have done, ignoring the circumstances (since I didn't pay attention to that). As a male, he should be ashamed; I got the distinct impression that he was a masochist >_> Well, girls and masochists everywhere will be laughing, lolpwnd!, while I will stay the hell away. If you're really intent on reading the whole series, skip the latter part of Chapter 40 if you're squeamish, or get irritated when you witness carelessly....I don't know how to put in the spoiler text, so I'll end it here. It will save you a lot of heartache. (mad propz to LeviathanZr6 for the heads-up)
If you're all about some gratuitous boobs, panty shots, and nudity, this may be your cup of tea. I find that kind of stuff to be boring in general. If its got something to do with the plot, however (only one I can think about is the lolable Yuria 100 Shiki), its not so bad. So, those are my two cents, or something like that.
In mangas, I like plot, 3d characters who aren't all pathetic, some lulz, and good artwork. This manga seems to fit these criteria, so I'd say go for it, keeping my warning in mind.
