Plot / Story / Characters
Gacha Gacha is an ecchi, romantic, comedy manga which is split up into two separate stories.

The first being Capsule and itís about two friends Kouhei (boy) and Clara (girl) who have a sort of love-hate relationship. During the summer, Clara goes to Hawaii with her mom but returns home with some split personalities. From the start to finish this is an incredibly whacky story and even though the split personality seems a bit off, it is portrayed in a great and funny way. There really is no structure to the story, as it is just a bunch of random events, link together in some way but the characters are what help keep the story together. Having a girl dealing with multiple personalities was great because you could never get bored with her and Kouhei was great in the way that he interacted with each one.

The second being Secret and itís about some cowardly guy that goes to try out the new Gachax2 virtual game, when all of a sudden an error occurred. Now every time he sneezes he transforms into a cute girl. Even though it is still pretty fun to read, the problem with this story is that it is far too unexplainably stupid and makes no sense whatsoever. The characters this time around are alright but thereís no depth to them. Though Akira can be very convincing as a girl, the fact that this became an idiotic gender bender full of cliches (nose bleeds), leaves little to be desired.

Drawing Style
The artwork is probably the best aspect of this manga, because even though it may look pretty standard it still has incredibly well designed female characters, whilst sneaking in a couple panty shot.

Overall / Enjoyment
Overall Gacha Gacha proved to be a somewhat enjoyable manga and the idea of linking 2 separate stories together was good. However the 2nd story just wasnít up to the same standard as the 1st, which forced me to lower my score. Fans of gender benders may like the transition but even those fans will notice something wrong with the story.
