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 avoided this for a long time because I thought the idea of having a girl as your right hand is just stupid. However I decided to read this and it turned out pretty good. The main character is too funny. The female lead is adorable and the story is amusing. At the end it turns dramatic. The end was predictable but still good.

What I like about this story was it's uniqueness. Guy has a girl for his right hand one morning. When does that ever happen? The character development for the story is very very smooth. The characters change at such a realistic pace and reason that you don't realize they changed. What's more, is a twist in the end. I've read this over a dozen times, and it's still good

One of the best ecchi Iíve read

The ecchi tag is exaggerated anyway. I'm giving it a lower score than it deserves (more in spoiler tag at the end).

The story
Sawamura Seiji is known as Mad dog and is the strongest delinquent in the city. Except for his sister. But he only wants one thing: a girlfriend. After another rejection, he wakes up and to his surprise, a girl is attached to his right hand (getting cr*p past the radar). The girl, Midori, confesses that she always liked him, but was too shy to say it out loud. Midori quite likes the fact, that she is now Seijis hand. He is against it, but will get used to it. The story continues with their everyday lives together.

I wouldnít say itís a gag manga, but some chapters were totally random. Not a bad thing at all.

Art
Very good. Above average shounen art. There was not that much of panty shots, which was for the better. But it was forgettable and not very original (the art). Generic shounen.

Characters
For me, characters are the most important thing in every fiction. And here, the characters were great. Sawamura Seiji kind of reminded me of Harima Kenji. He wasnít that cool though and I also donít like him that much. He was too kind, seriously. Misunderstood delinquent, who only wants love. I'm not surprised there were so many girls (and boys) in love with him.

I hated Midori though. She was helpless, selfish andÖ well yeah, she was selfish. She didnít worry about anyone but herself and Seiji. She didnít care that there are people worried about her. Also, I donít like these happy characters.

I have to write about two more characters, because they are my favorites.

Shingyouji Kouta-kun!!! aka how to add shounen-ai to a shounen manga. I donít even know what I like about Kouta, but the chapters about him were seriously funny. He is a guy that attracts troubles. Or troubles attract him. Anyway, his falling in love with Seiji was hilarious.

But the place for the best character definitely goes to Ayase. Ayase was holding the whole story together. Best chapters were with her (or Kouta). She is such a sweet girl. In school she is the annoying know-it-all, but you can see that the character was very well done. She plays with stuffed animals. Just look at her room, so cute. Her love to Sawamura was so pure and romantic. Really, the most romantic scenes in the manga were with Seiji and Ayase, not Midori. She is strong, kind of irrational (especially the ďI saw him firstĒ reasonings), pure hearted and righteous.

Enjoyment
Good and funny manga. I recommend it to everyone. Seriously, go read it. I as a girl liked it, so if you just stay away because its ecchi or shounen, donít.

So about the low score:
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
I really hated, that he didnít choose Ayase. I cried the whole chapter, when she confessed to him. (The second time). Seiji and Midori arenít such a good couple. It would be a lot better if he chose Ayase, Midori realized that the first love never last and so onÖ Even Kouta would be better. I know, the story was about Midori, but she just doesnít deserve him! Poor, poor Ayase. Let me hug you. *hug*

I remember watching the anime back then and cried on it. I also remember repeatedly singing the opening and ending song and even buying the OST of Midori Days. Man, how I love the anime version.

It's funny, characters have good development, and actually romantic and heartfelt. It's warm, you could really feel the love of Midori for Seiji-kun.
A really nice blend of humor and romance.

And yes to the person who said, it hasn't lost its charm. Because it's worth a second try.
