College student Shinya Okama is initially tricked into working at a gay bar by his friend Tanaka, but he starts to enjoy it when he sees how cute he looks in drag as "Catherine". However, his infatuation with himself is short lived when he falls in love at first sight with Miki, an innocent college girl and regular at the bar who happens to look a lot like Catherine. Although the two of them hit it off right away, Miki only knows him as Catherine, and to top it off, Miki already has a boyfriend. Not wanting to concede defeat just yet, Okama continues his struggle to get closer to Miki while trying to prevent her from making any progress with her boyfriend who just wants to get in bed with her.

This ending was a little weird.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
The main girl and main guy look a like (especially when he's crossdressing). Basically the main guy loves the main girl, but he falls for his girl persona as well. She still loves the main guy so it ends with them getting together, but he dresses as his girl persona where he looks like the main girl and she begins to crossdress as well and now looks like the main guy when he's in guy clothes.

Absolutely Great

Yup, just hilarious, unbelievably funny at almost every turn smile

And yes, it does indeed depict LGBT themes (and maybe a couple of others too) in a way which reflects the era in which it was written......yeah, still hilarious, I myself have a sense of humor and can put my over-sensitive/looking to get upset at the most innocuous of perceived slights/ on hold when I absolutely know it really is just meant to be funny and not vindictive smile

Couldn't recommend it highly enough for gender bender/comedy.

If you can get past the over stereotypical old fashion view people used to have of homosexuals as well as the use of male rape, sexual assault ect then you might enjoy this. Don't mind a good gender bender and the conflict between the mc's two lives but it is very over shadowed by the sexual gags.

Homophobic Depictions, Downplay of Rape   
Rating: N/A
by cedarpencil

Humorous--however, at the expense of the LGBTQ community. The majority of jokes made play off of stereotypical caricatures of gay men in drag. The romantic inclinations of minor (non-heterosexual) characters are trivialized and used as comic relief, often in conjunction with their inability to "pass"--or be perceived as female because of a lack of stereotypical feminine features. At one point one of the minor characters even rapes the main character in what's supposed to be a funny scene. To be honest, ALL the non-heterosexual characters are portrayed as thirsty, thinking about dick all the time. These depictions only perpetuate a common societal view of non-heteros as perverts who don't care about consent and are driven by base desires, doing little to further their inclusion and acceptance into general society. The article that was included in the scanlation I read addressed this, but the content remains in the manga nonetheless.

tl;dr--The entire story is centered around a heterosexual man going after a conventionally cute and naive girl. Gender and sexual minorities are played for laughs.

Don't judge by its cover

I had this on hold for a long time cause this cover didn't catch my interest. However, after finally reading it I was instantly hooked. The only down side was that it only is scanned up to ch. 22 just when it starts getting really interesting.

The romance part was fairly all right. However, it just didn't seem interesting enough to read past Volume 1. And some of the humor and crass depiction of gay people were a big turn-off.

Maybe we should add horror as genre, because this manga has the most horrifying scenes I've ever seen. Well, in a funny way at least... biggrin

So damn funny... I love the scenes in the gay club, with the drag queens talking about their failed romances and roping our hapless young hero(ine) deeper into sexual confusion.

Sure, the humor's crass and unsophisticated, but who needs sophistication? Note that readers should refrain from eating or drinking while reading this manga, because spontaneous sporfling is a definite risk. biggrin
