There was absolutely nothing homophobic in what I said. I merely said I don't read gender benders (usually) because I prefer to read about straight couples, as I am a straight man. It's like people who don't play racing games because they just have no interest in them. Doesn't mean they hate racing.
I kinda of understand because the theme of a pretty looking girl which can be a girl/boy perhaps is entertaining and interesting to others. There is nothing particular wrong with that mind set although at the end of the day one must realize this is a gender bender with Aikawa being a boy and all romantic development would be boy x boy in this series. Unless somehow the author is trolling us like another manga xD

Even with that said I think this series is quite entertaining, one thing I always like about gender bender is romance that transcend gender which seems more pure and real than most heterosexual couples.

Spoiler for chapter 22:


It would be nice to get a some chapters of kaichuu! out ^^, I'm mostly just tempted to read it raw perhaps.

There's Kaichu! on it's way, and we've reorganized some tasks so that hopefully it comes out on a more regular basis, sorry it's been so slow.

Thanks for the reply... although I wasn't trying to peer pressure anything on release if anyone felt that way but Kaichu! is probably one of my favourite slice of life gender bender. Then again I'm more biased towards sports manga in some way seeing children growing up aspiring to compete and become nationals champions has more substance and depth than regular high school drama/comedy to me

Read through all of the chapters today. In the beginning I tried to hold the mindset of, "Aikawa's a guy! Aikawa's a guy!", but I'm surprised how quickly it turned into, "Aikawa's a Hideyoshi. Aikawa's a Hideyoshi." I don't even know how I feel about that anymore. I'm just enjoying the manga.

I believe the translator said the mangaka didn't finish in time, possibly due to 3/11 creating a shortage on supplies.

Yeah, there wasn't any note in the magazine, but I would assume that the massive earthquake and tsunami had something to do with it. Dozens of magazines canceled for the month, it's probably better to just be happy that something got released even if some of the pages weren't polished.

Just caught up again to chapter 24..

Did not really like this 3 chapter arc at all. Don't care too much about Shiori or that girl that just came along...

Chapter 26 is with 16 pages a bit short, but nice.

Cant wait for the next chapter!

Chapter 26 is certainly nice. It's good to see some of the old Maki-Aikawa interaction again.

The past chapters haven't been very interesting. I personally don't care about any other characters.

Agreed. I feel like this chapter was the mangaka's way of saying that things are returning to normal.

Ch 27 is out.

AIKAWA + PADS + MAID COSTUME

Maki too.

Best chapter we've had in a while, especially Kadoyama's epic joke.

"Traps and maids everywhere. I must be in heaven!"

Hands down one of the best chapters of the series. I laughed so hard my stomach was hurting!

Aikawa with extensions and the maid costume was great.

A short but nice chapter. Enjoyed the conversation between the two.

*cues romantic music playing in the background*

Aikawa is just being coy with the "if I'm a girl" excuse after an entire day of Maki being positively dashing to the end. They are already in love~
