Yes, it was the cover of this manga that caught my attention. As you may have noticed from looking at all the other manga that I summarize on this site, I have a knack for choosing manga about crossdressing. Sometimes it is a surprise when I open up a random manga and there is crossdressing, but in this case, I think the cover makes it very clear what will be happening in this manga. I mean, it’s a guy in a bra and panties! Either there is some sort of crossdressing fetish going on, or that is one REALLY flat girl.

Oh boy, much strangeness going on here! Yes, there is crossdressing, but it isn’t just that, there is also gender-bending! It is the story of Jr. High school boy Konta-kun. His mother owned and ran a lingerie shop called (amazingly enough) ‘Magic Lingerie”. At least I THINK it’s his mother who runs it. It may be his best friend’s mom. It is hard for me to tell O_O At any rate, the lingerie shop burns down, and Konta-kun and his friend Mika-chan can only watch as the flames destroy the building. This is a horrible thing for Konta and mika, they had often had great times there visiting. Mika-chan brings Konta-kun to her house to stay for a while (maybe he lived by the shop?). Later, they visit the wreckage of the building and are saddened by the destruction the fire caused. But Konta-kun opens a cabinet and is amazed to find some sets of lingerie that are undamaged! As a momento, he brings the bras and panties home with him and keeps them in his room. Things get back to normal for a while, but this being manga, that can’t last for long!

One morning, Konta has to shoo Mika’s toddler brother away from the box of lingerie. The baby wanted to play with the lacy garments. Later that day, Konta comes home from school and finds a strange girl in his room! She is wearing some of the lingerie from Konta’s box! When Konta asks who she is, all she replies is ‘babu?’ in babytalk! then the garment she is wearing slips from her shoulder and Konta is shocked as the girl transforms into Mika’s baby brother!! What is happening! Konta tries putting the lingerie back on the baby, and POOF! the baby changes into the girl again! WOW, it really IS magical lingerie! (this is really sounding like some hentai shounen manga ^_^;;;) So of course you might guess what happens next.. Konta decides to try the underwear on himself! and yep, it changes him into a girl!! Hmm the possibilities! What would a jr. high school boy do with magical underwear that turns him into a girl? And what is this about idol singers? Oh my! Some of the reasons he uses the magic are really unusual!
