Emotional realism with a very, very light touch, crowning the mangaka's previous works.

Shiomi Chika-sensei, chica, I love you. I put off reading this because, forced prostitution, yuck, but you wove the practicalities of the woman's experience into her male reincarnation's life with such...validity yet with such a light touch, that I was glad I checked out the first two volumes from the library in spite of the weighty week behind me.

Enjoying this! Though at times, I would feel that I have to shift some principles in me to continue liking it, but so far, I've come to appreciate and understand some disturbing things smile You'd understand me once you've read this biggrin

I was very pleasantly surprised by Yukarism. In my experience, time travel is just asking for a polygonal love shape of some sort, but so far Yukarism has focused steadily on its main 6 (3) characters. Their interactions are interesting and the romance is absolutely charming. I'm so happy to have found this manga!

I prefer guys to be more possessive and pro-active in relationship. But, in this story, he was a female in this previous life and unfortunately he keeps displaying female coquettish characters ~ kinda turns me off.
Others found it good, but this isn't for me.

It's not your average shoujo romance fantasy, I tell you!!!
I thought the plot would be like the weakly girl had a connection with the other world and was frequently targeted by outside forces and the protagonist guy would show up and protect her and risk his life.
But I was dumbfolded, It's not like the typical plot you see in fantasy shoujo.
Every chapter leaves you with a deep impression.
I like how I keep craving for more chapters after I read one after another.
The story is sooo good unlike any other.
The guy maybe eccentric but he is super amusing and interesting.
I also like the girl very much for being eccentric as the guy...hehehehe

This is really a gem...
Please translate the ongoing chapters..
Its really good, I'm serious here.
I rarely give a superb review and this manga is worth it!!!!!!!!!

This is my new fav manga for sure. The story is good and very much engaging. The art is to die for. Very cute.

Lots of fan service. For girls. Hehe. Yukari is one good looking man. And he has this sexy vibe going for him that's not at all intentional. Yukari's personality is simply amazing. He has an interesting mind, making his thoughts and actions quite funny. Completely lovable.

The plot is so interesting and creative. The whole past overlapping present is very intriguing. I especially like the whole reincarnation thing. the story is written well that i dont get confused about the two timelines. I just wanna read more so I can find out what happened.

I think there could be comments about the possible boy-love in this manga. It is very very subtle, but there is something there definitely. Maybe more of a platonic/possessive/protective kind of love from one guy to another. Like an exaggerated brotherly love. Idk. It doesn't bother me. I like it actually. Doesn't take away from the plot at all.

The reason why there might be questions about yukari's sexuality is because there is body swap. Yukari, despite the name, is a guy. He is a reincarnation of an Edo period oiran (like a geisha), a woman. It's quite funny and interesting.

Anyways. I'm loving this manga. I want more!!

Yukarism is definitely a very interesting and lovely manga. The characters are for now well constructed and do not let you down as the series progresses (though I can't confirm this, it will depend as the series goes on). Also, the plot only gets better as it progresses, it does not stray from its original idea but instead builds upon the main idea. I would definitely praise the plot and give the mangaka an applause for the plot and drawing. The drawing in particular is clear, clean and beautiful. The artwork is very good with conveying emotions, it gives the readers a reaction/respond. Also, the characters are also good looking (which is a bonus bigrazz ). Overall, I would say that this is a manga for anyone who enjoys a hint of romance but focuses more on the storyline with comedy here and there (that actually gets me smiling or giggling). I can't wait see how the story goes, and I hope you will spend your free time reading this manga smile

Yukarism's very interesting. The characters are adorable, and the artwork is lovely. The plot is consistent and believable (within the realm of the story) and has a nice pace to it. However, the plot lacks direction, and the only conflicts are 1.) it is unclear how Yukari's past self died, and 2.) two of the characters seem to hate one another for some reason that neither can explain. While this lack of direction would usually doom a manga to failure, Yukarism is just so gosh-darned interesting and charming that it makes you (or at least it makes me) want to delve further into the world just for the sake of discovering more about the characters and their circumstances.
Overall, Yukarism is a head above the rest, and I recommend it.

Now this is one manga that is a tad different from the regular ones about body-swapping, reincarnation, time-travel and such. At least I was pleasantly surprised at the twist. Wonder how the plot will develop should it resume after hiatus.

I am hoping desperately that this manga returns from hiatus soon.

The manga handles the easily convoluted concept of reincarnation with deftness and humor that many other series fail to do.

Unlike NG Life, a rather similar manga (which I actually did not like much), where the emphasis seemed to be that reincarnations are in the end now different people and should be viewed that way, Yukarism's view is that even if they have no memory of the past, their soul is the same and therefore they remain the same even if they have changed appearances.

To quote one of the characters: "It's amazing how much a person's tastes, thoughts, and life path are similar as their previous life."

This is proven to be very true, and most certainly with Yukari. Some people might be annoyed with Yukari's detachment and "cool guy" personality but this is a direct reflection of Yuumurasaki, who, despite her smiling exterior, was empty inside due to the harsh world of the red light district.

Mahoro is the same as well. She displays the most differences due to having lived as an ordinary girl - being a girl, particularly that of the usual, regular family, means she would have absorbed society norms of what a girl acts like - but her core personality remains very similar to her past self.

Considering Mahoro's past life,
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
I think it would be very interesting if in the end, Mahoro will be the only one to remember the past. Takamura said he is an outlier, so likely Mahoro is the same as well. Souls don't change, after all. Most likely, all of them would forget the past, but I do hope the mangaka would forgo such an obvious ending. (Hopefully this is one of those series where they -don't- forget once remembered. Takamura/Mahoro's ability to cast spells is very cool and it'd be a damn shame to get rid of it. Haha)
