We are trying to get this series on a monthly schedule, but the redraws are crazy hard, so each chapter is taking a while to complete. Hopefully we’ll get some help soon so we can do multi-chapter releases after we finish “Fushigi no Maria-kun” and “Furou Kyoudai.” Anyhow, we’re doing our best with this series. If you have some Photoshop redrawing skills and a little bit of free time, please lend us a hand so we can stay on schedule (even one or two pages of help per chapter will make a difference).
This chapter has all of the typical troupes you expect to find in a shoujo body/gender swap series. I think it’s done well, so I don’t mind the lack of originality. I like Chouko’s attitude the most in this chapter. I think it’s best when you find yourself in a weird situation, to have fun. There no sense in pouting or being angry because it brings a person no closer to a solution and results in sadness and frustration. I think the best character development is going to happen to Hayate and I’m looking forward to it. I worried for Tsukiyono, though. He really is smitten. In that way, it feels original to have real consequences for the center of the main character’s affection.
Anyhow, onto the release:
Next up will be “Pochamani” Chapter 4, followed by a sequential release of the rest of “Fushigi no Maria-kun.”
