Shino asks his best friend Akira to help set him up with Maruyama, the girl of his dreams. Unfortunately, Akira ends up taking her for himself.

Depressed, Shino heads down to a black tea shop run by a guy named Shuuji to drown his sorrow by pigging out on cakes. Sometime in the past, Shuuji had a spat with a friend or something (referred to only as “that guy”) who thinks the best way to make up is send mysterious unmarked packages of randomly selected tea. I guess he has a history of sending dangerous gifts, as Shuuji gives Shino the tea “on the house” to see if it’s poisoned. Well, the tea appears to have been laced with a genie, who promptly grants Shino his desire to be with Maruyama… But be careful of what you wish for…


From Taruby:
This tale begins with Shino who was in love with a girl called Maruyama. Shino asked his best friend, Akira, to set him up with Maruyama, but instead Akira betrayed Shino. Depressed, Shino goes to spend the rest of his day binging on cakes at the Seijou Black Tea House which is run by two mental cases by the names of Shuuji and Keisuke. Mix a magical tea leaf, homosexuals, and various other things for ensuing hilarity.

The shoujo-ai+shounen-ai+ecchi=exposed body parts and lots of fun!
Funny story, although the plot was a little scattered. Still, the mix of GL+BL was done well. Made me laugh a lot, and that's what I wanted.
The art was great, very pretty and with all the ecchi made it unique.

Yeah, I agree the ending was too open. But the manga as a whole was good. Cute guys, cute girls, lots of lust to who knows whom. XD.
Something to lift up the mood.
The art of this mangaka reminds me a little of safe again today's art, where the story wasn't complete as well, and yet, it still was good.

I enjoyed this one quite a lot, and even though the ending was open and uresolved I didn't mind so much.

Well, at first I'm really hooked up with this manga... The story is good, the art is cool. But, the ending is quite rushed and the conflict has been not solved.

I might have given this manga a 9, but because of the ending, I'll give it a 5.

It was good! Like most people complain about, the ending was unresolved, and the plot was slightly... plotless. Except for the main point, in which was trying to resolve the black tea issue, but that was left unsolved. However, the art was very beautiful, and the manga overall was very funny, light-hearted and interesting. It's fun to read when you get tired of the typical mangas, and is looking for something funny to pass time, yet something that wouldn't get you addicted to it.

Beginning was nice, but when I finished this manga the only thought that was left is: "Is that all?"
It has ended with several cliff hangers. It is just so lame. I was looking forward to some drama and it is ended just like that. Nothing is resolved in the end...
I give this manga some credit only because the initial idea was good...

This is a great manga is you love genderbenders and comedies. And there is just (almost) enough BL to make up for the GL in this series. But what I dislike most is how there is always a little ecchi in each chapter (just the top part though). Still a very fun series to read and the art is very lovely seeing how it's by the same person who did Blood+(shoujo)~

Is very similar to Ranma 1/2 in regards to genderbending style , but more focused on the love triangles. But personally, I was never really into Ranma 1/2...

Edit: just finished reading ending. Left wwaaay too OPEN, that I can hardly can it a real ending at all. Also, feels like there should be far more since there were far too many loose ends not resolved. However, I overall enjoyed this (but had points taken off for the damn GL, ecchi and ending...).

Uhh.. No offense, but I think if the description didn't at least give away that much for the plot. I doubt most people would even check this series out in the first place.

i love the brainless smut here, but the ending is meh. it look like the series is cut short, so there is no real resolve and at the end i barely made head or tail of the story. i mean, its fine if its just smut without plot, but if you want to make a story, make it comprehensible.

Or rather, the story doesn't come to any conclusion, it gives the impression of ending halfway. All in all, it could be interesting, but not amazing. Either way, it's too short for that.

really nothing too great. maybe it's just the fact that im not too keen on ecchi or gender-bender stuff (probably haha), or the abrupt and inconclusive ending, but i *really* did not like this one very well.

if youre looking for some sort of yuri-yaoi combo powerhouse, this isnt it. its a waste of time. read something better

Nothing mind blowing though the art looks more suited to slice of life manga than gag manga which is the typical characteristic of gender bender comedies. It goes heavy on the fanservice after a while. Don't read the description of the manga on this page before reading the first chapter. I did so and it likely deflated any sense of surprise while reading chapter one.

Overall the volume seems like a bunch of random stories mashed together. A light read if your into gender bender or if you have nothing better to read. Otherwise, skip this one.

I have to agree with drunkguy here.
I liked Ranma1/2, but I do not really favour this manga. But that's just me, maybe because of the protagonist.
