Imagine being a guy that is involved in a horrific traffic accident. You wake up from a year long coma and everyone thinks your dead but whatís worse is that you have a girl's face. Thatís the basic setting for this hilarious Gender Bender, Romantic, Comedy. The stupid story for this manga started incredibly well, as most of the guys reading this will be able to understand how Randou (male protagonist) feels to be forced into this situation. After the initial beginning, the story just becomes a bunch of random events about Randou trying to keep his true identity hidden. This can be pretty difficult when thereís a worrisome thing between his legs and it leads to some absurd comedy.

The characters involved in the story are your typical batch that are found in certain shounen, romance manga but the one the stands out the most has to be Randou (Yuna). As a guy reading this, I could definitely understand hoe Randou must feel, being in these kinds of situations.

Drawing Style
With a great story, great comedy and great characters this manga was somewhat let down by its mediocre artwork. When not much was happening it was okay however when thereís a lot of action, on a page, it can be a challenge to visualize the scene.

Overall Pretty Face proved to be a very enjoyable manga and is probably one of the best in the Gender Bender genre. No matter how unbelievable the story can get, it always does a good job making these seem convincing, like how only Randouís face is a girl but the rest of the body is his. Well solely as a comedy this manga is a must read but like many other Rom/Coms the romance barely plays a part in the story.
