Overview
In the latest volume of the acclaimed series about transgendered kids exploring their unfolding identities, we ve reached a big event; the junior high school entrance ceremony. The boys wear black uniforms with stand-up collars based on mid-19th century European military uniforms and the girls wear navy blazers, tan skirts, and red ribbon neckties. Enter our heroes; Nitori-kun is forced to wear a boy s uniform while Takatsuki-san has to wear a girl s Yet one girl Sarashia Chizuru draws stares, whispers, and pointed fingers, because this long-haired beauty is wearing a boy s uniform. Both Nitori-kun and Takatsuki-san are awed by the girl s courage, but Takatsuki-san is particularly vexed by their own faintheartedness. They envy more than a few other students who experience such liberty in wearing either uniform and ponder what it ultimately means about themselves. Envy and jealousy are prominent themes in Volume 5 Chiba-san is jealous of Takatsuki-san, for whom Nitori-kun still carries a tortch. Maho envies Anna-chan s professionalism as a model. And Chii-chan s loyal sidekick, Shiri Momoko, is intensely jealous of anyone in whom Chii-chan shows the slightest interest. And so our protagonists set off on the journey to adolescence ."
