Description
Three boys in junior-high who cross-dress because of differing reasons meet each other through a cross-dressing community website, and decide to meet up in real life. "Parou" started cross-dressing because he wanted to attract a heterosexual boy he liked. "Marika" is transgender and identifies as female. Lastly, "Yui" is an antagonistic boy who adopted the persona of his older sister after her death. In contrast to Parou and Marika, Yui is sorely disappointed at the meeting.

Unique, but conflicting for me.

I've reread this manga about 4 times over the last few years and my opinion of it has been really conflicted, especially my latest read which I didn't finish.

On one hand, it has a really stunning and simple art style, a trans character, really interesting characters with narrative follow-through, and I have a place for it in my heart. On the other, I feel like I pick up transphobic ideas about gender and sex, I feel like the at least 2x sexual assault of a minor was glossed over, and I feel like you get this whole feel that just seems relatively ignorant about these issues.

Among manga readers, you get this vibe that since a manga is shounen-ai or w/e, it has no obligation to handle real-life social issues well but, I feel like it's appropriate to talk about these topics when one of the characters is transgender and another is gay. These characters feel very grounded in reality, which I think i why I feel so attached to this manga, it FEELS realistic despite some wild situations. But so early on, we get these young teens interacting with each other and the amount of sexual stuff just feels, mishandled? Like, obviously one of the characters is in an emotionally abusive relationship, but as far as all of the characters, it just doesn't sit well with me about how I feel like things are being framed.

But I really do love and respect how we have a story with younger characters considering their gender and sexuality. I think that the blond girl & black-haired guy (yeah, ik, not their names) are important characters, as their situations totally happen at their age, and while the ginger dude's situation is somewhat outlandish, I think it resonates because it's grounded in feelings that are very appropriate for age and life. I think the fact that we get so much manga is nice too, you get to see these characters really develop over time.

But every re-read, I seem to lose the thread and my engagement wanes as I feel the lack of direction. What pushes me onward is the need to see these characters grow, as they actually do mature a lot in the big picture.

Engrossing and mature

This is a nicely-done series. Unfortunately though, I feel like its target audience is quite restricted. So let me start by saying who will enjoy this manga: if you like LGBT+ themes and/or (light) BL, then this is for you. If you don't... it's not like you can't enjoy this, but you will probably find it less engaging than the targeted readers.

Something Bokura no Hentai is very good at is treating serious themes in a serious way. Illness, gender dysphoria and sexual hassault are only some of its themes, and they are handled quite well. The manga is not exactly realistic- at all. But it is belieavable, which I think is good, given how much melodrama and excessive angst are common today. This said, I still would have liked some more realism here and there.The story starts really down to earth, with the protagonists talking about what they will do when they get "unwanted hairs". However later on it loses some of this straightforwardness and gets more vague. For example, talking about Marika,

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
we are lead to believe that after going to the doctor she started transitioning. However we can never be sure, since everything is left to imagination. Hormones are never nominated, nor is surgery.


I wish Fumi-sensei was a little more explicit on the main themes of the manga. However the series is still enjoyable as is.

A cast of well-characterized and original protagonists is probably one of the strongest points. I liked some characters more than others, but their personality was always realistic and their actions/goals/thoughts convincing. I never once thought "what the heck is he/she doing?!". Everyone acted rationally and as a real human being. The character development was also surprisingly good! Adolescence is an age of change, and Fumi-sensei definitely showed it in this work.

As for the art, I think some might find it off-putting. Everyone looks extremely cute and young, even males and adults. Characters resemble chibis, in a way. Pages are often kind of empty, although sometimes Fumi-sensei makes it clear she can draw beautiful backgrounds. This makes the manga very easy and quick to read. The pace is so fast - I would probably be able to read the whole series in 3-4 hours.

My last point would be about the romance. This manga's ending was very cared-for. After reading the last page, I was satisfied with it. The manga ended, and it was clear from the last chapter. I liked it, I needed no more. Despite one big thing. Romance.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Sooo many UST! Unresolved sexual tension everywhere. There were so many possible couples, and I wasn't expecting to have clear endings for each one of them. But they should have at least made some people get into a relationship. I mean wasn't most of the chapters about people flirting anyway? What's the point of showing that if you won't make things progress? I find it a cheap way to keep the reader interested and it misleads them into thinking something will come out of it.


In the end, though, Bokura no Hentai was a fun read. It definitely kept me good company and, despite its flaws, I would suggest it.

This is nearly as good as Wandering Son in terms of its treatment of transgender issues, and better than it in terms of the way it delves into the darker side of human nature and issues like depression. I have trouble telling if it is too sweetness and light in spots, especially after certain events in the 6th and 7th volumes. But it usually brings you back to earth pretty quick.

A pleasant surprise

When I clicked something with 'hentai' in the title, I certainly didn't expect this.

One of the big charms with this series is it's fresh perspective on the crossdressing genre. Instead of being filled with fan-service, awkward portrayals and the general disapproval, Bokura no Hentai takes a serious look into the genre. Each of the three protagonists have their own reason for crossdressing, and as the series progresses they have to deal with their own identities, sexuality and love interests.

Is it a perfect representation? No, but it's a damn good one, and considering how "well" manga tends to portray crossdressers and transsexual people, it's a relief just to read something that separates the two terms to begin with. Similarly, it's also relaxing to read something that doesn't glorify the characters just because of their sexuality. They can be kind, they can be jerks, they can be outright mean - but this just adds to the characters and makes them seem more real.

The art is simple and charming, the cast interesting, and several characters beside the main trio also get a few moments in the spotlight. The story is a bit slow in the beginning, but it's a worthwhile read, and the characters will develop.

Such an intelligent manga

I know that manga's sole purpose is for entertainment, but Boku no Hentai provides so much gender theory analysis that I have never seen in any other manga. It starts off with an exploration of gender identity between the three male protagonists, as they seek support for their gender-bending activities and seek comfort in performing "abnormal" gender behaviors. Additionally, the BEAUTIFUL Art wonderfully illustrates their inner turmoil and supplements the psychological understanding of their journeys. I cannot recommend this manga enough -- it's a captivating story and really enlightens you on their story of exploration and acceptance.

A lot better than expected

I thought I wrote a review for this but I guess not. I recall being disinterested from reading the summary and title, but decided to give the series a try since it was tagged genderbender and shounen ai. So glad that I did.
Plus points:
-Gives Hourou Musuko vibes story/character/art wise (positively)
-Refreshing unpredictable story
-Character interaction/development (it's slow but it's there)
-No fanservice
-It's not hentai lol
-The scanlators are amazingly fast once they get the vol raws

Cons:
-Took awhile for the characters to grow on me
-Compared to many other series, not much happens in each chapter. The story moves slowly but you really don't notice it if you're reading them by volumes
-Craving for the next volume to be released once caught up

[Edit] I finished the last chapter. The ending wrapped up a lot better than Hourou Musuko did imo. The series also ended at a good time, didn't drag forever, lose direction, and ruin all the good feels I had for the series (unlike Hourou Musuko).

I was expecting something filled with fan service (seinen + gender bender), but a surprise here - it's quite a serious story. Still fun and cute, though. I love how the art reminds me of old shounen-ai manga like Kaze to Ki no Uta or Boku Patalliro!! (see the youngest boy's fantasies about being a princess).

The manga is pretty fresh in my opinion, free of cliches. Can't wait to read the 2nd volume.

edit; after reading the 2nd volume I updated my rating from 9 to 10. I love this manga.

I actually really liked this manga. It gave me a new perspective. I liked how instead of being three gigantic cliches, they had their own stories and legit reasons for being the way they are. I think it's refreshing and the art isn't bad either.
