From MangaHelpers:
This is a story of a group of college-age people who struggle with gender and sexual identity.
Yuki (nicknamed Yoshiki) is a girl, but she is terrible at 'being feminine.' She mostly dresses like a boy and is often mistaken as one. However, she has to wear a skirt and imagine being dominated by a guy in order to masturbate. Nagao Mikako seems young and innocent, and she uses that apparent innocence to sell her body as a fake 15-year-old. She knows her youthfulness can't last forever, but she enjoys tricking the men. Her friends have no idea of her sexual habits and believe her to be sweet and sheltered. Aiba Kaito is a pretty good-looking guy, but he wants to be Nagao Mikako. He often dresses as a girl, picking out clothes that mimic Mikako's style. Though he's into cross-dressing, he is still attracted to women. Will these young adults and their friends be able to handle their 'guilty secrets' and muddle their way through this confusing period of their lives?

Better in the beginning

This was a lot better in the beginning but then it out stretched out a bit too much. Some of thr drama in the middle was kinda pointless. I still enjoyed this, but it should have been at least 2 volumes shorter.

I think part of the appeal were the short chapters initially.
The story ends abruptly, kind of, but it's so rewarding and each chapter ends in a cliffhanger, naturally. But these kids, man, after every single page you just want them to figure things out for themselves and have a happy life.

Also, one of the oddest love-triangles I have ever seen.

This was just wow.

Following the lives of dysfunctional teenagers/early-twentiers coming to grips with love and sexuality has always been a weak spot for me. I really like the cast, and every one of them feels fleshed out and their complexes/insecurities thoughtfully examined. Definitely recommended

full of twists and unique-ness, one of the more interesting manga series I have read in a while! Had it's downsides, but it gets you reading it until the end. The characters have a good back story and real side to them a lot of series don't explore. Very nice!

It was very nice going through the manga and then even the ending was exactly what i hoped for... I definitely recommend this. Though if you don't like cross dressing or prostitution theme you have been warned, there is a bit of that right from the start...

So far I've read up to the last vol and checked out the raws so I have good idea how the story ends.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Nothing is resolved. The entire manga series would have had a decent ending where Yoshiki finds out about Kaito and Mikako at the hotel and says CYA. Also, she returns to being friends with Sho (WHy) at the last chapter. How do you even justify even wanting to know such a person?

It's frustrating since ever step forward there's 10 steps backwards in their relationship and I'm so tired of love triangles in manga. The best ending would be a retcon where the MCs just never meet each other at college and get on with their broken lives. It's a shame since the manga-ka had a decent idea but just never managed to make it work with the pointless loldrama scenes.

Skip it unless you like endless drama and cute outfits. Also everyone except Yoshiki has a terrible personality from beginning to end.

I just want these kids to be alright

As I'm writing this the last volume is being translated. And. I. Am. So. Nervous !!! Ive grown so attached to these kids and I just want them to all be okay and to finally come to understand and know and love each other as I know they all can.

The characters are all very three-dimensional and they each have their own sets of unique, intense baggage. Throughout the story we get to see how they are slowly working to overcome their issues, with many steps backwards before they go forwards, etc. The characters are all fairly self-centered and become inter-dependent upon each other to reflect their own self-worth - and while this narrative can be stiffing at times, it is what makes the characters believable and compelling. Like most humans, they are inherently flawed. And while their actions are often misguided, it is with good intent. The story & writing overall feels very realistic and I know that this manga can be A LOT for some people, but I really do recommend it.

It has prevalent themes of identity exploration and each character goes through their own personal journey of trying to discover who they really are after having hidden behind a "mask" personality for so long. Gender and sexual exploration are central themes, and while I might otherwise be turned off by the amount of explicit content in this manga, it is used with purpose and is necessary for the story, honestly.

I wouldn't recommend going into this lightly, but if you're up for a terrible torrent of emotions, then get ready, cause its a wild ride.

I really hate this manga

It invokes a lot of negative emotions. It also forgets to mention the fourth character in the manga called Sho and he is basically the character everybody picks on in the manga. The manga is reverse equality and reverse feminism. It basically supports that you shouldn't respect women or other peoples rights by showing that they will only mistreat you and take advantage of you. If your a person that is against women rights and people dressing the way they want to dress this manga will support those beliefs.

Amazing art, but the story isn't for me.

I really like this manga's art, not even the "kinky" side ( it was still nice though ), but mostly the girls's face. What i really enjoy to see is pretty and girly faces, and this manga was full of it, so I was happy to find this manga, the story seemed to be interesting and going over modern questions about gender and identity, so why not. I started to read, characters were interesting, girls were pretty, but then it got pretty fucked up from my point of view and and became harder and harder to read. I managed to read around 40 chapters ( the art really kept me from dropping my reading ) but I couldn't anymore so I stopped and then I'm writing this half-assed review. Honestly this manga is good but just not for me, I won't say that it's too "mature", just too complicated, and I don't like that in romance mangas.

My favorite manga genre is romance but i can't stand when its too disturbing and dark like in this story, I like simple and cute ones, so if you're like me maybe this manga won't be for you. If you're looking for gorgeous art and a complicated romance story with a lot of twists, perversity, traumas and that you can stand when the romance isn't light-hearted, this might become one of your favorite mangas.

The characters and the plot is very interesting. I really like the premise, and it's pretty thought invoking too. It does seem painful to read because from an outsiders point of view I just feel like all this drama would be unnecessary if they just talked honestly, but obviously it's "complicated" and dramatic, plus it's not going in the main pairings favour right now and I just want to read the part where it goes uphill. Normally I hate stories that are just constantly depressing, but considering how I read it all and couldn't stop, either it wasn't actually constantly depressing or it was interesting enough that it didn't seem overbearing. Quite an entertaining and well-drawn read.
