my title says it all, this manga is a hidden gem in a bunch of gender bender mangas. The artwork is very old school, there's no fan service, no explicit sex, artwork is average at best... but the story is the first one I have read that is soo deep and sensual.

Talks deeply about the conflict between the soul vs body, if you were borned into a male/female body, are you neccessarily assigned the gender's stereotypical "mindset"? Does a soul have a gender? Should we express our soul, or our gender?

The main theme of the story is the bonding of souls. The two main characters' deep and unusual bonding (for two "males"). Is it love? Is it friendship? or neither? how do you distinguish them?

Very good ending, don't want to spoil anything, but the ending is among the best manga endings.

I was able to feel how the characters felt at times, I felt sad and happy for them. Some funny parts, but they did not disturb the overall story at all.

It was a very good story of bitter sweetness, well aren't all love stories like that?
