This manga had potential to be a great manga, but it ended when the going got good. I would have liked to have seen at least 1 more volume. I want and ending!! Be it tragic, or happy, I don't care so long as a story ends!

Oh well all the same this is a pretty decent manga. I'll give it a 5

Way Too Short

Ok I read the Description of this and thought to myself this could be pretty interesting. Just when I start to get into the story it just stops and all I'm thinking is where's the rest.

The artwork is incredibly adorably cute.
The story is totally wacky but engaging.
The lead female character is both interesting and humorous.

Way too short.
No real explanation as to why and how they actually switched or their grandma post-mortem existence.
The male character really did take the switch too well.

Because it's really genuinely funny I'm willing to overlook a lot of other things, but the way it is now i really can't justify rating it any higher.

I have to agree with another commenter. It seems like this manga ended much too quickly without any explanation as to why or how. It seems like Grandma will end up with two girls rather than a boy and a girl.

Don't care about the morality or ethics of the situation (it's manga after all) so I'll still give it a 6 for the art & comedy.

The premise of this manga is pretty broken. This story is about a girl named Iroha and well the description tells you the rest, though her brother gets dragged along with the story too. But while he's not completely trivial, he's more of a sounding board.

Anyway Iroha already acts like a typical manga girl. She even looks feminine.

Soon after I started reading I thought this manga was going to suck. The characters were basically being forced through something against their wills because of someone else's opinion. It's kind of a dick move for a dead spirit of an ancestor to do*.

But I don't want to be overly negative. The main character is likeable enough and the comic is ok. I'm not really sure who this would appeal to, it's best to read it as the average comic(comedy, but not romantic) it is then to think it's premise will put it into any niche field.

It's generally good natured and harmless. If I did rate this it'd be an ok average read, it has it's funny moments and all.

*Actually let me explain the premise because the description only tells half the story. The ancestor spirits or whatever decide to resurrect their grandmother, and alter their gender to their opposite while they sleep because they feel that the boy doesn't act manly and the girl doesn't act feminine based on their ideas. Iroha is understandably annoyed/freaked out that someone did this to her and tries to switch back by being more girly though she does things she would have done anyway like wear a bra, panty, and her school uniform. That actually plays into the family's plan anyway, though I guess it's win-win because if they don't switch they end up with the girl or boy that they feel acts correctly anyway.

A cute short story. I would have loved to see this go farther. The art is cute, and the characters are funny. I think one of the sibilings takes the change too well (even if it makes one happy its still an abrupt change and that would cause some issues) but I think the fight the other sibling puts up is hilarious and sad at the same time.

Mikage's art is so damn deliciously cute! (and his comedic writing and story flow ain't too shabby either aka teh win!)
February 20th can't come soon enough (for the 5th newest chap of this series)
DA Pure keeps adding more excellent series as time goes on (the 4th crazy chap of concurrent running Doki Doki Shingen Channel finally shows that series to be a winner too, after the slightly more schizophrenic/less cohesive first three installments)
And yet another gender bender added to the mix in Vol.14 with Teda no Mikoto...
