You really do forget about it

The one thing I really enjoyed about this is it makes you forget she is a he which is actually a little refreshing for a crossdressing mc. It's all about the idols and their struggles but unfortunately that's all really which is the depressing part for doing those two things so well we get left with some very unsatisfying parts for me mostly that empty ending...

It has its moments. But overall, as the others said, it's not that good... Read the raws (as far as my limiter Japanese knowledge would let me; got some help from a Character dictionary for the stuff I can't get...), and the ending isn't that satisfying...

This is a generic story of blood, sweat, and tears. With less blood and more sweat.

You're into cross-dressers? Go home.
You're into upskirt pantyshots of idols? Go home.
You're into harem? Go home.
You're not into entertainment industry thingies? Go home.

This could go to either shoujo or shounen. Shounen plotline with shoujo presentation, maybe? They get a harder challenge each time they finish one, then they level up to overcame it, rinse and repeat. Girls in this series are so manly I often got sweat around my eyes looking at them dancing and singing whole-heartedly.

I like both genre so I might be biased.

I read the first 100 or so chapters and........I just couldn't take it anymore. I thought that this might be an enteresting cross dressing story...was I ever wrong. It quickly became a story about the Japanese entertainment industry, and almost nothing about the cross dressing aspect...boring

I'll write a proper review later I'm sure, but now I just want to tell would-be readers to stay away from this series unless you are a fan of the AK-whatever bands, or really desperate for a new manga to read.

The manga is generic, characters feel one dimensional (60 chapters in), pacing of the story is really messy and has a poorly executed story. It really does not offer anything new or refreshing to the gender-bender shounen genre.

Wait, this is shounen?

How in the world.... =.= Ok, first off. I would class this as shoujo. Regardless of the fact that the main character is a girl- I mean, guy. Although... The reason why it's classed as shounen could be because he's one guy amongst a group of girls/women. *shrugs*

Secondly, this manga will allow you to forget that the MC is a guy in the first place. (I did.) That's how long he actually crossdresses. I have no idea how he actually managed to maintain the facade that he's a girl in a group of 60++ females? Out of which some of them often end up groping his ass/chest. At certain points of the manga I actually had doubts that he was actually a guy and hadn't gone through a sex-change operation sometime inbetween the chapters.

BUT! For such an unrealistic manga... I find the MC and the plot surprisingly refreshing. The motive are pure (well, as pure as a motive to help another person can be) and pretty straightforward. There really isn't much frills or drama tagged onto it, which makes me cry out in happiness at times when the shoujo genre and it's cliches frustrates me.

You know his goal right from the start. If you can just look past the unrealistic crossdressing/performance aspect, then just sit back and allow the mangaka to bring you through his journey to reach his target. biggrin

And be sure to remember to poke fun at the moments where something just makes you go "Wts, is he still a guy or not?!"

Some will enjoy it and some won't. The gender-bender part of this story is **** though which ruins just about everything else, or at least for me it did. Ever see someone doing jumping jacks; if so then you'll know things move around (which is true for both boys and girls). Luckily the main character dances on a high stage with a cheap wig that never shifts or a skirt that ever lifts.

Everyone has different tastes

I was browsing through the comments and found some interesting comments on this manga.
I was never interested in AKB, but I decided to read this manga since it was tagged comedy and school life which are the genres I often read. After reading this manga, I found out that Maeda Atsuko is cuter in manga than that in real life (I just have to put this first, sorry Acchan fans IRL) It never occured to me that I would prefer 2D over 3D (lol). Someone mentioned that it's super shoujo, but I think otherwise, a shoujo manga would never put on fan service for males but would put some for females. Other people might find the manga boring, but everyone just have their own tastes, try it and see.

The attraction, for me, is that when I read AKB49 and root for Minori, I forget that Minori is Minoru, a boy.

What's there, is passion. Underdog sports shounen offerrings and underdog idol's climb to the top have this in common, the passion. And underneath the rampant abuse of tropes and behind the flashes of panties, I could sense no malice, only a breathtaking sincerity. The attraction is not "everything a girl can do a guy can do it better," or merely bouts of inane bravado followed by watching pretty girls dance to their amusement, and even if it is, I choose to see its better sides. The attraction, for me, is that when I read AKB49 and root for Minori, I forget that Minori is Minoru, a boy.

The message is that gender ultimately does not matter, that any person following their dream is beautiful and worth watching. Granted, I do not think AKB49 is being subversive by conscious choice, the stereotypes such as the grating-on-my-last-nerve tsundere and the blandly attractive love interest would suggest differently. I would posit, though, that AKB49 has made well-worn tropes into the vehicle for more progressive thinking, despite its own host of frankly crippling issues. What's that you say, substance? Have you not been paying attention at all?
