What the hell was that?

Shame....The premise was interesting enough, and the art is pretty. But it was all wasted with the questionable pacing, shallow character development and those last couple of chapters. I found myself getting confused at each page, wondering if I accidentally skipped over dozens of 'em. Nope, that's how it was paced apparently. Then, there's the infamous ending. Holy cow, what did I just readconfused It felt like an entire farm of pox-infested swine was shoved down my throat.

I'm usually generous when it comes to manga ratings but WTF JUST HAPPENED. I thought this had an interesting premise at first but it just kept on getting worse and worse. I thought to myself "okay, this is only the beginning, it probably needs time to build up...." NO. NO CHARACTER GROWTH. SH*TTY ENDING. I thought by the middle of the chapter, Ayato would chose a gender but wth was up with the ambiguous ending?! Horrible horrible plot development -____-

The end?

For one, I have always been a fan of Naked Apes' works. I have read many of their works, including Switch, Dolls, and some doujin. I was very excited to read this story, and the art is as beautiful as always. Especially in this series where Ayato is surrounded by flowers. The series was interesting and the romance seem promising. As far as the plot goes, the characters plays a big part and they are pretty interesting. However, I feel like the story was cut short. well, it was cut very short. The ending was horrible. Now I heard the story will continue in the next series. If that is true, I might change my mind and go ahead to buy the manga from the bookstore.

It was an interesting read. The art was beautiful. There was no story except for the romance. I think the authors wanted to please every shipper out there and until the last moment, it wasn't certain that Ayato would choose only one guy. There was something lacking at the end and that's why I can't rate it higher.

NO, it's not worthy
At first, I would want to rate this manga around 7-9/10, it' wonderful, beautiful and cute
However, after reading further and knowing the ending, it's 2/10
sorry it's a little bit harsh but I cant find anymore reasons to rate it higher
character development getting worse, some are not likable, some have shallow mind, it's just worse. the ending is rushed and it didn't explain anything, it's all about how beautiful/powerful magnolia is

Another gender bender gem

I highly recommend this manga. And I expect this one to get an anime soon ( hopefully, as it already got a drama cd with powerhouse voice actors ) . I as a gender bender fan have read a lot of this genre.. But this series is one of the unique gems; only a few cliche (which is unavoidable)... The art is breathtaking (job well done Naked Ape)... Both the Fluffy and Dark sides are handled well...I like the characters, though some cliches are unavoidable . Most of the char are very possessive (which is executed well) . In the story, my favorite part ( even if it's one of this genre's cliche) is the main character's shaky resolve : he identifies himself as male, and wants to be fully developed as one ,and feared/hated the thought to become a woman, yet her heart yearns for this certain man...... Oh well, I hope this gets longer, and more mangakas will make "GOOD" gender bender stories like magnolia coz I'm running out of good things to read bigrazz

By read this review, there will be spoiler also. So, if you don't prefer any spoiler, do kindly read this review only the first paragraph, because the second paragraph will be the spoiler smile

This manga drives me crazy >,< I love it, the art also the story. The author can make the people who read it be influenced by the manga. FYI, I am a neutral, I don't hate nor loving yaoi things. *I don't say that this manga is yaoi*, I prefer for romance shoujo manga. But after I read this manga, I just can't stop read it. Each chapter drives me nut.

Many male nor female love Ayato especially because of the Magnolia scent. But I love it when Ayato has been kissed by Hugo, even though in their mind, they still think of Ayato as boy. What I don't like about Hugo is, in chapter 35, I found out that from the first Ayato meets Hugo, it looks like the meeting of the two of them has been planned by Hugo, Vincent and Hugo's father. Hugo's family already plan to do something like revenge(maybe?). Even though I think Hugo also really do love Ayato, it just that I cannot forgive Hugo for deceive Ayato. But still I hope that Ayato will find true love with Hugo.

Thank you for all group scanlating that translate and doing this project include Crimson Flower and Omari's Sister.
I hope both of group scanlating can release the chapter faster. The end of my word, I'm sorry for my bad grammar or if I have any mistake. Thank you smile

I really was enjoying and I was waiting for its new updates every time the story was going well and the characters was lovely but in two last chapter they destroy it and made me sad I wonder when something is so great why they end it in this rush? really that was great injustice to this wonderful manga.

Guilty Pleasure

What you'll find in this manga: androgynous beauties, steamy angst and unrealistic characters. (Also some side (minor) BL/Yaoi, which isn't really my cup of tea). So if what you're looking for is more than that, this story will most likely do as other commenters have said: disappoint.

It's cliche and kind of non-sensical - but well, so what? I still (sort of embarrassingly) enjoy the passionate romancey feels, and pretty people~ I can't help myself. If there are any absurdities about it, they're just adding to the humor I find in reading it. It probably won't wow me (if ever) with more than surface-level appeal but it's not horrific nor is it intended as an award-winning, tear-inducing work of genius.
