Amagai Gakuen, a prestigious school for boys, was hit by an unusual spring storm during the entrance ceremony. Five boys - Hazuki, Toma, Yusuke, Madoka and Junta - were all caught in the storm's violence and were affected by a strange phenomenon. All of them were transformed into girls!!

Inevitably they will meet someone and fall in love. Bikke wholeheartedly introduces this new, beautifully drawn series about boys and girls coming of age.

Gender bender at it's best   
Rating: 10.0 / 10.0

Great manga so far. I'm personally hoping they up the shojo-ai and shounen-ai parts a bit, it's a fantastic read as a whole either way. It really is gender bender done right. The main characters (5 of them) are all well made and interesting. I'm having a lot of fun reading this. The comedy parts aren't over done. The whole thing feels realistic (or as realistic you can get with the main characters changing gender every time it rains), the drama isn't over done. The boys aren't perverts, yet still not 100% pure/innocent, they have their "boy" moments and they have their "girl" moments.

A very well made manga (so far). The emotions are all realistic and makes you root for them. I'm looking forward to other people finding out about their situation (and that sparking some sort of drama). And in general looking forward/wanting more to happen in the manga, be it drama, romance, heartbreak... doesn't matter, I want more action! Quite mild so far. I honestly recommend people reading this, it's a great manga.

Which reminds me, gender rolls are portrayed well in this. They touch on subjects that a gender bender should touch on. The emotional differences of a girl and a boy are made quite clear. It's nice to read the male point of view on girls, without overdoing the fact that we are different.

As far as genderbender manga go this so far has been one of the better executed ones. It explores the problems from changing sex in a realistic way and you come to like all the character's as they are and leaves you wanting to know what's going to happen next. I gave it a 10 for now and just hope it can maintain my impressions of it.

I've been a fan of BIKKE's work, any one who likes her creativity and drawings will also like shinkuu yuusetsu (though that's a little towards shounen-ai)

ame nochi hare is very interesting, the characters are very well profiled, though it mostly focuses on the main character. Also, each chapter has a well planned portion of the big picture, it keeps you wanting for more.

i give my 10!

I'm sad

This manga is really adorable!! And cute!!
Different from anything else! And having a friendship moment!! Five people who just met during the early days of school, get the events that make them together. Working together to overcome their problems.

But in the end I'm sad and disappointed with the ending... Or at least who the First Protagonist end up with...

Read Kanji

I wish I could read the original raw chapters. I've found up past chapters raw but not past 24 scanned and translated into English. This REALLY makes me want to be able to read kanji.

The series is great, the characters are great, the idea is fun and while it's been done before I don't believe it has to this magnificence. It took me a while to get into it, but the way they handle sexuality and relationships is really captivating. Gender isn't done great so far, but I can hardly expect something to hold up to my standards in that department.

Spoiler: the main character having 3 romance interests is insane! (in a good way). And I absolutely switched from supporting one to another at least twice. A couple of them actually have multiple romance interests, and the confusion between liking them as a girl or a boy has only been recently addressed and I can't wait for it to be explored!!!

hard to find manga that takes ITSELF seriously, and this one takes you into the persons head, and tries to show you how that person feels. and then the manga gives you those "feels". like when sensei plays the tempest. good props for a song that fits.
deff a 10 and hope to find more like it!

I didn't know that this was a shoujo manga before reading it so the ending was a bit of a surprise for me. I hope that others keep in mind that she was intending it to be a shoujo manga from the start when reviewing. That being said, compared to other shoujo manga I think this one is a really creative/fun read.

On a side note, because I've read nearly all of her other works as well as manga outside of this genre, it left me a bit disappointed.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
First of all, there was no need to have every character in love with someone. It got to the point where one of the characters had three love interests, and two of them had two love interests.. Also, I'm not sure why she decided to include both a gay and lesbian character when neither of them would work out in the end. It distracted from the development of the main couple to the point of ruining the ending. Lastly, I feel like she didn't think things through when planning this whole gender bender idea. Its silly that such a small group of kids out of the entire school end up changing and everything is set so perfectly for them to keep it a secret. To top it off, their transformation depends on the weather of all things.. Anyways, these are just some thoughts I had while reading it. It was still a very pleasant story.

This series goes beyond what I was expecting, by the way I'm Rio-kun and I'm responsible for bringing this wonderful manga to its translation into Spanish, I think not to have noticed a possible spin on the "Yaoi" (of which I am not a big fan), I guess that's what led me to continue reading this series, which sends a message of "love" to whoever is reading. Seriously this manga takes us a bit beyond what we read daily havitual. No? (In my case ecchi XD). Also I recommend "My girl" from Sahara Mizu. Josei manga These are very good.

Gender, sexuality and romance

Takes a good and elegant swing at all three of these things. It gets kind of tangly in terms of who likes who, but it's not outrageous in the way its done - it's more interesting than it is confusing. There is a lot of same-sex and straight oriented romance going on simultaneously and it always feels balanced - unbiased towards either preference. And of course I like that gender identity and being accepting of different experiences is sprinkled throughout the story. I cant wait to see how it ends!
