Description: Mishima, a student at a school in the countryside, is bullied by his classmates. The reason is because he's seemingly gay. In reality, Mishima does like guys so he doesn't resist their bullying, and instead, finds solace in secretly cross-dressing. One day on the rooftop, Mishima finds the lipstick he'd lost before in the hands of Kirino, one of the bullies... and Kirino was about to put on the lipstick that Mishima used on his own lips. This is the story of young boys looking for a place they can really be themselves...

I only came to comment on the dangerously close copyright of the title.

This manga...was pretty homophobic? I'm used to that in BL manga written by women but....it really ruined this one for me in particular, because the author was actually choosing to write about more serious issues, but missing the mark with them. Like, the author was in support of gay rights but.....eh. You can think you support LGBT rights while still harboring harmful misconceptions about LGBT people. 

 

[spoilers] It was creepy and unpleasant how she implies that the pedophile teacher was just a gay man who'd gone too far....and all that shit about comparing the young boys to an adult pedophile rapist, was just bad. Plus the shit about "their eyes being different" like?? being gay doesn't make you a different kind of human. The author seemed to be implying that being gay is something inherently dark and twisted, a really harmful negative stereotype.

 

Not to mention, conflating homosexuality with gender identity, as if they're the same thing....like oh they're gay so of course they want to be women! Or, being trans and being gay is the same thing! Very common and negative stereotypes. The author treated Kirino as gay, but then discussed how he wanted to transition to female? She tried to write a gay boy but accidnetally wrote a closeted trans girl lmao. Also, MAN were the character relationships weird. Mishima got over that bullying way too fast to be realistic, and Kirino and Yumeno's attitudes toward Mishima flipped weirdly quickly

 

Anyway....that's my very serious review. I will actually read the last few chapters if they're translated, because I am a little invested, but definitely think critically about how this portrays gay men. Tbh in retrospect, I actually wish I'd skipped this one. 

Mishima's mother is the only reasonable person in this manga, the real mvp.

ugh, creeper teacher is creepy. i hope he gets hit by a truck or something D:


Yeah, great idea. Then he'll get reincarnated as an overpowered bishounen MC in some fantasy world. That'll show him.

the rape was really unnecessary for this story, only thing I think it really did was make me not want to continue reading this.

Ugh, thanks for the warning. I think I might just skip this chapter entirely.

Is this a manga about making eco-friendly alcohol?

...yes.

So when does the manga equivalent of Kurt Cobain die?

This has been an interesting read so far.

I love this manga is different and so unique!, the characters are adorable and deep. And is quite strange... I love it, I really want a happy story but is quite dark too, so it's exiting read it! Thank you!!

Really like this series. it's pretty different from other BL.

Not really a BL fan (yet?) but the cover and the synopsis has this kind of draw to them. And they don't even hint on how "funny" this manga can be. Pretty good stuff here.

This manga is pretty solid, waiting for more development now that it's going though, slow but the kinda thing that'd be more enjoyable to read once it's finished than waiting update to update.

Hm? Chapter 3 is just chapter 2 repeated. Uploading mistake?

Fixed! xD 

Muhahahaha. Can't wait for the fear the squinty blond will feel when he notices his friends are all coming out of the closet. >: D

Oh, this feels more like gender bender + a bit of shonen ai (or maybe yaoi)

I see why Kirino wants to act all manly now

Hm? Chapter 3 is just chapter 2 repeated. Uploading mistake?

Click bait too much?

Dat fucking title. Still not gonna fuckin read this tho

... what an unnecessary comment.

thumbs down

 

 

Also, thanks for the new chapter!
Such a good read! <3

Shouldn't this be marked as ongoing? Chapter 2 doesn't even reach the end of the synopsis. Still, though. That title, holy shit. I can't even look at it, it's too much. The story itself seems interesting, and I think a gender bender tag is definitely warranted. I'm not sure where this is going to go; even aside from how bad the situation already is, there are already lots of trouble flags, and the atmosphere is really strange. Everything from Mishima's fantasies to the classmates' bullying to the deeply blithe attitude of the adults has this surreal quality to it, and the tone flips from cold severity to an almost frantic madness from frame to frame. It feels kind of unpredictable.
Sodomite Adventures of Kurt Cobain and Dave Grohl?

thus far really interesting.

feels more gender bending than yaoi, but maybe...

who knows what the characters will end up as when the author's done with them.
