Summary: A romantic comedy with a distinctly Japanese flavor. Next-door neighbors Chiro and Ritsu have been best friends since childhood. Ritsu, the eldest son of a family of traditional nichibu dancers, is thrust into the public eye as his career takes off, and his growing fame begins to test the pair’s friendship. And now the twist: when a wish made at a shrine actually comes true, Chiro and Ritsu find themselves inhabiting each others’ bodies. A further complication arises because Ritsu is not just a dancer, he is a famous onnagata, or female impersonator, popularly known as the “Courtesan Prince.”
Graphics Rating: 3/5
Plot Rating: 4/5
Opinion: Okay… except for the fact that the heroine looks like she’s FIVE. Come ON! The guy is seemingly sweet though… >_> So I give the graphics a below average rating. Good, but not good enough.
So yeah the girl looking like a child is really irksome. She is also mildly retarted (seriously) some of the things she does… And the guy is just so cruel. If you are looking for an awesome romance go look through the rest of my site cause you aren’t going to find it here. The actual plot with the body switching is interesting and funny, but it has taken a strange turn with foxes and I’m kind of confused.
Maybe I would have liked this better if it was easier to read. I don’t know if that was the manga-ka or the translator but I was left scratching my head at some points.
Read if you are really into that body switching stuff cause it is fairly original in that sense.
Final Rating: 8/10
