* YuriGenre: Subverted, since Claudine searches for female love interests yet identifies as male despite his female body. Therefore, it'd be technically incorrect to classify this particular manga as yuri. Remember, kids: homosexuality and transsexuality are both LGBQT issues, but are ''very'' different.
