Otomen main image

Asuka Masamune is a manly man who's the complete opposite deep down - he loves sewing, cooking and all things girly! As his father left when he was a child to live as a woman, Asuka was raised to be the boy he is, but he can't forget his true nature. Now, as a teen, Asuka finds himself in the company of Ryou, a boyish girl he's fallen head over heels for; Juuta, a secret writer of shoujo manga who's modeled a character after Asuka; and a variety of others such as his self-proclaimed apprentice Yamato. Can Asuka learn how to balance his two sides and finally get the girl he loves?
