Manga Review: Hourou Musuko


Title: Hourou Musuko
Author: Shimura Takako
Release: Monthly
Status: Ongoing
Genre: Gender Bender, Seinen
Art: B
Originality: S
Story: S
Characters: S
Humor: B
Action: B

Impression: This is about a boy and a girl who feel that they should have been born as a member of the opposite sex and how they deal with those feelings as they grow up. Obviously the story is going to be deep with that kind of synopsis but it doesn’t just have the idea working against it for regular readers but the way the author storytelling style for the first few chapters really confused me, so much that I put it off for reading till later. Once you get used to it though, it’s really easy to appreciate the story for how much thought was put into it. It’s a bit educational since it gives a glimpse into how people with gender issues deal with them and society’s view on them. I’d recommend it to anyone really since it’s rare for there to be a manga that helps people understand each other better.
