Impression: This is about a boy who crossdresses as a hobby and uses it to get close to girl who’s awkward around others. He falls in love with that girl but he’s also in love with his neighbor who is several years younger than he is. This is an excellent manga of the Seinen genre. I love how the author plays with the various problems that teenagers go through as they grow up although it does make me question the difference in Brunei’s and Japan’s maturity in their teenagers. I find the complicated characters absolutely fascinating as their reasons for doing the things they are not ones I have ever considered before so they really broadened my perspective on the issues people face. For example, the reason why the main character likes to crossdress is because he rejects his male self as he is disgusted at himself for having impure thoughts about his younger neighbor who he treasures dearly so he wants to create an ideal persona cope with those feelings. It is an incredible manga that those who love Seinen works simply must check out.
