Well, I'm actually pretty surprised I hadn't reviewed this yet. I've been reading this for over 3 years from when Dynasty was doing it, and I'm the first to review it at it's ending, which was Today. And I've got to say, that it was Ok. But don't get me wrong, that's still pretty damn good. Why? Because, How can you end a story when The main protagonist may be in love with a guy (Genderbender), but is seeing a girl that is supposed to be the one the guy (Genderbender) likes, but confused her for the main character. Don't worry that isn't a spoiler, it's way too incoherent to be.

Anyway, it's a nice manga, It doesn't have "Great" art, BUT, i does grow on you, and it's unique. Also, The artist REALLY improves with his new manga "Koibana Onsen".
The characters are fun, although many may hate the main character, but i didn't hate him all that much, If you've read Tonagura! or Ai Kora, Then this protagonist should be no problem. As far as the main Heroine (Guy) He is nice, the more likable characters. The characters are pretty 2 dimensional, but it's the pretty much the guy's first manga.

The story, although not greatly creative, is what you should stick to around for. Maybe i'm a hypocrite, but i thought it was fairly creative. When (Except in a crappy Shoujo manga) do you see a genderbender like this!

About the ending... You should be Satisfied, I read it 10 minutes ago, and it's fairly good.
I didn't expect for a nuclear holocaust at very last page, man i was scared!

But seriously the manga is pretty good, i give it a 10, not because it's the best, if i had to give it a score based on a universal opinion then It'd be an 8, but my enjoyment, coupled with the fact that when i first picked it up, i couldn't stop reading it, i MUST give it a 10.
Enjoy this "Nice" manga!

good read but...

this manga is a good read, it has a good story and good characters but i can't f*cking stand the main protagonist and his indecisiveness. Yes I understand your feelings our torn but it's a f*cking guy and your not even the Masato he's in love with. I might be a little more understanding if it was a girl but this is f*cked up to make the clearly obvious choice (Ozoora) suffer and even the guy who thinks you are who you aren't, but i still recommend it to anyone with some time to kill. P.S. this isn't the first gender bender i've read.

i'll give it a ten just cause i can't top reading.

Well, this was the first shounen-ai/gender bending manga i ever saw. The time i first saw it, i was somewhat shocked, cuz that was a whole new thing to me. Now, i love gender benders, and i'm more tolerable to yaoi/shounen-ai.(well, not that all, i can't bear sex scenes in yaoi, i pass these pages very fast, but i like the boys love thing.)
Now, about No Bra:
Great manga, at the start i was like WTF?, but later, i got so hooked up in the story, that i couldn't stop reading. And when i finished the last chapter(it was 21 at that time), i wanted more. Yuki is my favorite character of mangas. She(he/she, who cares?) shares the top 1 with Lelouch(Code Geass), Jo(Burst Angel) and Kusano(Sekirei). She is lovable, kind, cute(heh). Even if it's a guy, i don't care, i would fall for this trap happily. Well, next one: Masato. I don't really hate him. Well, he is a jerk, a moron, but, put yourselves in his situation: He has a beatiful and lovable chude(chick dude) in his house. He is the only one who knows this. The chude is in love with him. This was the first time he had any experience like that, anyone would be confused. But, yes, i hate the part of him that keeps liking Oozora Kaoru. Hmm, she has perfect grades, a perfect body, is perfect, and likes Masato. I don't like her that much, because she keep putting Masato far from Yuki. WHY THIS JERK DON'T CHOOSE OZOORA OR YUKI FASTERconfused THEY BOTH ARE SUFFERING FROM YOUR INDECISIVENESS!. Ok, i'm okay now. Mizutani-sensei: Grrr, i hate her. I don't like her character at all, just it isn't my type. But, she is doing well f**king up Masato's life. Mizuki, Yuki's cousin, even being a sometimes a pain, she is vey dependable, when they discover
Spoiler (highlight to view)
that Masato isn't Maa-kun
. This manga focus more in Masato's confusion about Yuki, a very cute chude(chick dude), and Oozora, a perfect girl(I hate perfect girls, aww, dunno why ;x)

Btw, i saw the raws of the next chapters, and... well, for what i saw, i didn't like the ending ;(
PLEASE, DON'T OPEN THIS SPOILER IF U DON'T KNOW THE END, IT WILL RUIN ALL YOUR FUN)
Spoiler (highlight to view)
Man, i wished Masato cleared his mind, and stayed with Yuki, and explained everything to Oozora, but... It appears Masato say that he isn't Maa-Kun to Yuki, and Yuki says to everyone he/she is a boy. Then, Oozora and Masato get together, and Yuki just keep as a friend. Man, i wanted to shoot myself when i saw that ;( Even a Oozora x Yuki thing would go better ;(

Well, anyway, read this great manga. And don't forget it:
ITTTTTTTTTT'SSSSSSSSS AAAAAA TRAPPPPPPPPPP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I like the idea, I like most of the characters, the art is decent, its not toooo ecchi. The problem is that I hate Masato. He's a jerk! Two-timing indecisive self-serving idiot. He doesn't deserve anyone! Arggh. The only reason I read is because I want to know what happens to the other characters, and I hope that Masato will get his butt kicked.

I mean it is funny and all. Except when they kiss. A guy is a guy. Not saying I am a homophobe or anything, it is just not in my taste. The story is pretty cliche except there is just one difference. The child hood beauty is a dude. Pretty much like any other romance manga out there.

i dont know about everyone else but this is a good series, even though it's a shounen-ai i am okay with it, its saisfying yet disturbing in a way, waaaay different from the average ecchi, it amuses me how maeda becomes sexually confused and tries to find a way to balance all his relationships, although there are only 22 chapters i hope there will be more in the future and it will continue to be interesting

I have to flippin say this, almost every comment I read involved some form of insult towards Masato, haha! So flippin true, though! I loved the manga until he became such a cheat! Pick one or lose both. The thing is ... I want them to find out so they can whup his ass ... but then I don't want Yuki to be sad that he was lied to (AND had to cut his hair for NO reason at ALL), and the real Maa-kun cheated on ... frankly, I think they should just get together and leave him behind XD (seriously, though ... that would be a very happy [and entertaining] ending for me) Ugh, that guy's ... stupid. A stupid perv that really doens't deserve the trust or love of either of his 'lovers'. Seriously. What a loser. I wanted to root for him to break up with Kaoru and go for Yuki in the beginning, then I found out he wasn't Maa-kun ... and I was hoping he'd tell Yuki and Yuki would still like him, blah, blah, blah ... but then he chose not to tell him (and lied to himself saying it was to selflessly let Yuki be a girl), AND he cheated on Kaoru! I lost all respect for that guy. All I know is that I wanna keep reading =D 21 chapters is not enough for me. I gotta know how it's gonna end, and I'm hooked. The main character may be a (funny) perverted prick, but you just get so attached to Yuki and Kaoru that you don't wanna stop reading, really. I love it. It's a bit like a Mexican Soap Opera, though ... I wouldn't be surprised if Masato had an evil twin brother named Enrique ...

Overrated

I think this manga is more than a little overrated. It's nothing more than a super cliche ecchi with bad art, unlikeable, unattractive, static characters, and a stale plot. The only difference is that it caters to guys with transgirl fetishes instead of guys that prefer cisgender girls. That's it. Even if you are a guy with a transgirl fetish, though, I bet there are better gender bender ecchis out there for you. There's no draw on this for shonen-ai fans because Yuki is so girl-shaped ze might as well be a futanari. Ze's a transgirl, not a bishonen that crossdresses to look cute. There's no draw for ecchi fans because not even the panties are cute - and no breasts. I personally liked it a little because it's a manga about homosexual love that actually deals with the issues of stereotypes and homophobia, unlike pretty much every shonen-ai ever made. Don't bother starting it, though.

The main character makes you want to rage so hard. He's pretty much a perverted useless cheat who would fall for the first hint of flirtation or seduction. He's also willing to keep the truth hidden to get what he wants.

Well, putting shounen-ai to this manga attracts more people. And I am one of them.
The only one I hate in this manga is the main male character, Masato, he's the most awful bastard in the world, even worse than perverted ones. He'll get to like any girls with good looks and yeah, with panties. I don't think he is in love with any one. Poor Yuki & Kaoru. Bet he'll get no one in the end.
Anyway, I like the female sensei, she's funny. ^__^
