A recurring theme of this manga is the feeling of validation that comes from having people accept you for who you are, regardless of how non-traditional your interests are. Gojou Wakana had always felt self-conscious about and hid feir interest in making dolls. But when Kitagawa Marin learns about feir secret, fe's more interested in asking Wakana to help fem make cosplay costumes than judging fem for liking dolls even though fe's a boy. Wakana genuinely respects fem and wants to help fem. So together, they go on a journey to make Marin's dream come true--to turn fem into that character from the ero-game that fe loves through the power of cosplay! Chapter 16 is a turning point in the manga and I'm not sure I like the direction the manga is heading. It starts becoming more harem-y as well as presenting itself more like a how-to guide on various cosplay techniques than a proper story. [Reviewed at chapter 29]
It's a pretty solid romance manga, of course it has a little of ecchi what with the topic, but still manages to be pretty wholesome and cute, leaving you with a very warm feeling in your chest. The relationship and interactions between our main man Wakana and super popular girl Marin are adorable, and very honest, which adds an extra point to the wholesomeness of the story. Don't expect it to be the greatest romance ever told, because it's not, but it's an incredibly fun and cute manga, which really deserves your read.
At the start i would like to jsut say its good romance manga focused on cosplay so if you fan of any of these then read it and dont read this review becouse it gets negative and may make this manga look bad wich it is not. So on youtube i got recomandtaion for upcoming anime that is based on this manga watched the trailer and gave it a shot. I had no clue what this will be about so i didnt expect much since there wasnt much talk about this manga i thought maybe its some avarage stuff or something like that. But at begining i was so wrong this story started great it had a lot of humor ecchi stuff and story was quite good and even so that i dont realy like cosplays i was hook up. If i had to rate this just from first couple chapters this one could be ez pz 9/10. So what happend why im not pumped anymore well it went downhill there is not mcuh of an story anymore its just same thing over and over again there is an evenet they go make a good looking costume and its done same thing over and over. Also if you ever read any school romanca manga or watched any anime like that then you already read this one becouse it has events with same outcome and this is realy sad becouse at the begining autor showed us that he/she can make realy good manga so there is no excuse for copying other mangas if it was copycat from start i wouldnt mind it but it lost all its charm for me no joke most of episodes are avarage at best and best part of all of this is reading coments after each chapter. Its just like you go to micheline restaurant and they serve you a cheeseburger from McDonalds thats this manga in nutshell. As for art its good its so obvious that autor loves Marin draws her greatly but thats the only character that is good looking others are on that avrage good looking level also Wakana cant be 15 no way he looks like he is 20 at least. Lastly characters and this is when it gets bad as well we have some characters entroduced to us early on but they never do anything. Or there are some characters that have some chapters based around them but then never show up again so its always same 2 people and yes its romance manga not harem or anything else but if you have basicly only 2 cahracters in entire story you cant make some unique story parts or events without changing how characters look or think so what you get is same stuff. So overall i think autor is capleble of making good manga and i hope it gets better. At time of writing this review there are 63 chapters out so i think its good amount to say what this manga is like but yes it can get better as i stated before but once autors start writing theire story this way it usualy wont get better if its gets i go and revrite the score but best i think it can get is 8/10 becose there is no way i will ignore lazy copycat 40 chapters and it would be unfair to others that actually have a good story.
