Incredibly disturbing, this has to be one of the more interesting mangas I've read so far this year. The premise screams "cutesy cutesy", but this is far from cutesy. It's probably going to turn into one of the most disturbing series I'll read this year, but I definitely recommend it.

This is a review for the entire series - I'm most certainly not going back to figure out which chapters belong to which book! That's the downside to reading it all in one fell swoop online. I found myself absorbed by this once I started reading it, though, so I'm very glad that I was able to read it this way!

Please be warned, this review will contain spoilers for the end of the series. I've gone ahead and put the entire thing behind a cut.

What if you swapped bodies? What if you found yourself in the body of the person you most admired, the “angel-like” school idol who you pass every night (and possibly stalk)? Well that’s what life has install for Komori Isao, a hikikomori who lives for no one else but himself, playing games and masturbating endlessly on repeat. Until he becomes Mari of course.

Oshimi explores gender expectations, and the complex fabric of social hierarchy and friendships, which Komori must now maintain as Mari. M

NOTE: I read the simulpub version of this manga on the CrunchyRoll subscription service, not the French or original Japanese trade publication. Actually, given the information I was able to find on this book, I effectively read as much manga as would have filled 7 volumes of collected issues last night. This certainly covers some very interesting ground, and I'm really looking forward to where the series ultimately goes.
Volume One covers the introduction to the premise of the series and the cast

Ce premier tome m'a beaucoup plu. J'ai aimé le principe de l'histoire, la façon dont les choses se déroulaient. Même si j'ai eu du mal au début avec le personnage principal, avec la façon dont il se comporte une fois qu'il est dans le corps de Marie, ça reste compréhensible. Au final le contenu nous fait nous poser pleins de questions, qui amènent des réponses qu'on a très envie d'avoir. Le mangaka réussi donc haut la main à ce qu'on souhaite lire la suite sans tarder.

Read this recently. The first volume feels like it never really gets off the ground. It's a very slow build up. Basically, it's a body swap story, which we have seen before, but with a more mysterious coat of paint: Our hero doesn't know where the real Mari went.

There was a part where the guy (Yoshizaka) inhabiting Mari's body says to one of her friends that when he was a dude he "followed Mari from the convenience store" but that he wasn't a stalker. Umm, no, you are. And the first thing he doe

I read this via crunchyroll's (really shitty) manga reader app, which is my absolute least favorite way to read things and I'm very bitter about it. I wasn't planning on reading this at all because I have an innate distrust of body-swap narratives, but then I found this article: "Me, Myself, and I: Sexual Politics Inside Mari's Body Swap Narrative" through my favorite blog Anime Feminist. I'm glad I gave it a second shot, but I also feel like everything I would have been impressed by, had I give ...more

there are some things you expect when reading a “body-switching” manga: one person feeling the other up, wacky misunderstandings and then ultimately some kind of realisation that “huh, maybe people are different and that’s good”. i thought that was what i was getting into here, but it’s decidedly not. the reality of “body-switching” is that it’s a nightmarish idea, which is well-explored here. the fun, racy idea of a man inhabiting the body of the woman he desires

The story has been done countless times: body swap, gender swap, a walk in someone else's shoes. Maintaining lies, awkward encounters, secrets being figured out - tried and true sources of tension.
The spark that sets this story apart from similar manga is hard to explain without spoilers. The reader is awarded for their attention to detail, and the whole story ties together nicely.

Negative elements: The story is a bit long at 82 chapters, and floats between "fun teen manga read" and "artistic s

Oshimi really brings out the suspense in this manga. Just like "Flowers of Evil" I really found this one to really look into characters and their mind. Komori and Mari are very different and yet their loneliness and lack of identity are just as similar. Now the bizarreness of the story itself is based on the suspense of the "body change/transfer identity" and I really find it interesting how Oshimi delivers that identity is so human-made and truly artificial and therefore identities are neither ...more

Okay this was one of the most interesting mangas i've read so far, theres actually no clear plot line involved but theres a concept, and the concept is stretched and pulled in different directions and dimensions. Watching the plot mold and twist in such extraordinary proportions is mind boggling, and the deep rooted message of this manga had really touched me. This is one of the few gems hidden in a vast multitude of gender bending and eechi mangas which speaks about the most important lesson of ...more

(Review of the whole series) Starts out as a pretty cliche genderbending comedy, and has some repetitive plotting along the way (seriously the protagonist goes into a coma twice in one nine volume series), but a good series about twisted, damaged characters and whether one person can really understand another, with yeah some shopworn gender gags that will probably always be funny.

Was a melancholy psychological rooted read with an interesting plot considering the popular idea of switching bodies, would love to see more from the author. I think with a little openness and acceptance, most people can find the story rather moving and almost tragical in nature. For me, I thought it was well written and well illustrated.

Shuzo Oshimi excels at drawing out the feeling one has with being uncomfortable with oneself -- or at least he does that well here and in Flowers of Evil. This doesn't have quite the same slow opening burn as FoE, but I have a feeling it'll take a sharp turn further down the line. Only wish it weren't 2 months before I could get my hands on the next one. Thanks, Denpa.

Avec un sujet pareil, avec un projet à la base aussi bon et intéressant, pour avoir à l'arrivée une histoire aussi inintéressante et insignifiante on se demande ce qui s'est passé. Si on veut aborder les sujets psychologiques et sociétales liés aux rapports fille-garçon et au corps, il aurait fallu réellement traiter ce thème; et si il ne s'agit que d'une enquête sur un esprit, ce n'est pas la bonne forme pour le faire : http://bookymary.blogspot.fr/2016/12/...

This was a quick ride... The pacing felt a little off, and the characters were very mysterious. I enjoyed it, but felt it was a little rushed.
