Not bad...

... but what a pathetic main character. Seriously he is so pathetic it's painful to read.
The story so far is interesting, with a twist in the usual body swap genre,
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
as the girl's mind seems to have disappeared, and the guy's mind was copy/pasted into the girl body, so there is 2 "versions" of the guy's mind: one in his original body, and one in the woman's body. Also it seems that the connection between the 2 characters is more complex that what you may think in the beginning.

Serious, realistic, yet annoying

Ever seen a genderbender/bodyswap manga where the guy experiences being caught unaware and unprepared by a menstruation period?

This manga takes the bodyswap premise very seriously, fills the characters with anxieties and problems with not a moment of romcom in sight. If realistic genderbent psychological drama is what you expect, that's what you get, with zero fluff for padding.

Warning though: both of the main characters are complete social rejects (bad personalities too, not just introverted) trying to fill in the life of a popular girl -- with a dark secret that makes it questionable which of them is more screwed up. Dark with an abundance of psychological problems may be normal for this mangaka, but doesn't make it any less frustrating if not infuriating to read. The lack of comic relief whatsoever makes this manga enthralling but not really enjoyable.

Great so far

One of the best gender bender I've seen so far, it has a very realistic side to it. It's quite unpredictable, though I hope it doesn't take a dark turn.

@ jeffreymgibson:
It's not unrealistic. He explained the reason for not doing so. Even if you don't understand it, it doesn't make it unrealistic. In fact, it's befitting of his character.

In the very beginning, I thought this was going to be pretty interesting. However, after the initial setup, not really happens for about 70 chapters. Its another case of an artist dragging his story out in order to pick up a paycheck. This series could of easily of been only 3 volumes without losing a thing. About 3 of 4 chapters before the end, the story picks back up and concludes.

Surreal with a pathetic protagonist, but why am I not dead inside yet?

Yes! Another Oshimi Shuuzou work with a paranormal plot device that ties into existential themes, like Yuutai Nova! is what I thought at first, but in contrast to his other works, I actually chuckled a little bit when I was reading this.

With only 4 chapters out, so far it has been extremely similar to a typical body swap manga. Except done in Oshimi's usual "surreal" style. There's a hint that the female lead Mari may have a dark side similar to female leads of his other works, but it's been entirely his perspective so no info yet.

I could see this getting really dark, though. For example, maybe he will slowly inadvertently ruin her life, while she achieves fame and fortune in his life and bullies or abuses him using his body on her body.

Unpredictable

Four chapters out so far and only one word can describe this manga. So far, the manga has been not that dark, but given the mangaka's previous works, it will become spiraled into being a dark manga and I truly do want to see that happen. This genderbender manga will not be as light-hearted and comedic as most other GB series, so I would love to see what the mangaka has in store for the reasons behind the body swap. I would also love to find out what the 'secret' that Mari has that is said in the description.

I hope this one won't be as weird as Aku no Hana. Gender-bended stuffs are usually quite interesting, so I have hope for this one.
Though I wonder why this mangaka is so obsessed with loser male. Not the whiny, indecisive type, but just straight-up depressing male protagonists.

The manga has a lot of potential. Just 2 chapters in and nothing happens yet. The author is really clever because he is making his reader anxious to find out the reason for the body switch.

I just hope that the author doesn't cancel this series just his last work "Yuutai Nova". This manga has lots of potential.
