Shimura Takako’s sensitive and charming series about two middle- schoolers wrestling with their gender identities continues.
Nitori Shuichi, the boy who wants to be a girl, and Takatsuki Yoshino, the girl who wants to be a boy, continue navigating the infatuations, jealousies, and embarrassments of preteen relationships during their first year of junior high.
Chiba-san won’t make up with Takatsuki-san, and no one can get over his or her crush. Takatsuki-san envies Chizuru-san’s boldness for showing up to school in a boy’s uniform, and begrudgingly shops for a bra. Nitori-kun and Mako (who also identifies as a girl) decide to record their voices to preserve them before they change. And: what’s up with the newbie teacher? There’s another gender-bending play in the works?!
