Hourou Musuko
 
Category: Drama, gender bender, school life, seinen
Author/Artist: Shimura Takako

http://media.onemanga.com/mangas/00000250/logo.jpg

Excerpt from OM:
Shuichi Nitori is a 5th grade student who likes to bake and has always been something of a feminine boy. When he transfers to a new school, Shuichi is mistaken for his 6th grade sister on his first day. Then he ends up sitting next to Yoshino Takatsuki, a tall, boyish girl who everyone calls "Takatsuki-kun." They both have secrets they can't let anyone know....

DAMN this is a great manga XD. I think this has some very good characterization. How both Shuu and Yoshino deal with dressing opposite their sex seemed very realsitic to me for children their age and gave the manga itself a far more mature feeling than I expected. The only thing I don't like is that it sometimes seems to jump from one scene to another out of nowhere, which confuses me sometimes, but it doesn't bother me at all, I just wanted to point that out.

Just finished reading chapter 31 and 32. Twas EXCELLENT!

We don't normally like duplicate threads but in this case it was a good call since the original thread didn't really say anything (neither did the follow up posts).

The thread you linked above has now been deleted so you may want to remove the link from your opening post.

BTW, good job on this opening post, now this is the way it should be done :)

They put this one on onemanga? Hmm, I hope it gains some fans here then, since it seems a lot of us in this forum seems to use that site a lot. I was following it directly from the scanlators (Kotonoha -- great group, good quality and excellent choices in manga) but didn't keep up after a while.

A brilliant slice-of-life manga. I should go and read the latest chapters soon I think.

Ah yeah she was kinda like that when it came to Shuu :D. It'd been great if her and Anna could have met, esp after

frubam 2008-09-01 13:37

YAY a new chapter http://i201.photobucket.com/albums/a...shemoticon.gif!!! I didn't think I'd ever see another chap.
Spoiler for chap 33:

Aoie_Emesai 2008-11-30 23:14

I just caught this manga. I love it ^^

Too bad it's been 2 months and no release yet >.<

Waiting for the next chapter is sooooo... ooo i'm impatient.

frubam 2009-03-07 17:03

Wow, 6 months O.O. Anyway, more chapter releases to the end of vol 5. I think I might prefer it in vol batches. The story moves better this way.

Spoiler for chp 34 ~ 42:

frubam 2009-03-07 23:44

Okay, apparently Anon did the scans all the way up to the chap 57, which means it's more or less up-to-date.

Spoiler for up to chap 57:

I'm glad you've kept us in the loop about this manga. Takako Shimura is fast becoming one of my favourite mangaka. A friend introduced me to this one after I read Aoi Hana. I'm definitely amazed at the subject matter she chose to take on. Thanks again!

No problem :). I've been meaning to take a look at Aoi Hana. How is that?

It's got that very dreamy quality that Hourou Musuko does except it's more yuri. You find yourself rooting for the most interesting characters. Some people find the pace in Aoi Hana to be slow but, after reading this manga, you'll see that it's fairly similar but change of subject matter (one girl falls in love with another, gets her heart broken, realises that she's still crushing on her best friend, deals with her feelings for women in general, etc). It's sweet, funny and sad. Kotonoha was doing that one too for a while. They finished up Vol 3. Vol 4 is due out sometime this summer, if I recall correctly.

I'll check that out, thanks :). I'm just afraid of a cliffhanger like HM, where just before junior high, everyone was broken up, then no chap releases afterword. What a way to leave the series off. Pure torture I tell ya T_T.

I can totally understand that. I was going through that same problem with HM until you filled me in on the rest. :D BTW, there are now 8 volumes of HM released in Japan. You might want to update your primary post to reflect that. I'm buying the rest of them today through Kinokuniya *dances excitedly*

Thanks, I'll do that.

I read all the trans chaps of Aoi Hana today, and it's just as you said, it's just like this, but a diff subject matter. I'm not usually fond of yuri, but this story is done in such a way that you can't help but to root for the characters.

Same here. She's like every cocky jerk I've ever met. Fumi is that mild kind of heroine. You both sympathise with her and admire her strength. And damned if you don't wish that she gets her happy ending. Aoi Hana is that rare yuri manga worth reading (I will admit to being a yuri fan, I am gay after all, but I don't read ALL yuri. Just the ones that catch my attention.) Morishima Akiko has a couple of volumes out there that are pretty good too. In the meantime, I'm going to enjoy HM for as long as it lasts.

Yeah, since Fumi gives off an air of a type of girl that can never say 'No' to someone who's aggressive, I was surprised she blew 'her' off when 'she' asked Fumi to come back. The mangaka never disappoints :D.

Anyway, to get back on topic:
