YMMV: Idol Pretender
  • Broken Aesop: The story's aesop that "Gender doesn't matter" is pretty fantastically broken by the simple fact that Chinami changes greatly over time as a result of being gender-bent.
  • Romantic Plot Tumor: The early chapters deal with Chinami trying to adjust to his new body and the work of attempting to become an idol. Halfway into the manga, the love triangle Chinami suffers in between Yuika and Oguri becomes more and more prominent.
  • Unfortunate Implications: As Chinami becomes more and more feminine and acclimated to his female body, he also undergoes Chickification, becomes increasingly prone to emotional outbursts and crying, and becomes unable to decide what he wants out of his romantic prospects. Oguri, on the other hand, is a constant Badass, knows exactly what he wants, and suffers no apparent angst over it. Yuika is a occasionally helpless, but is largely self-confident and unfaltering in what she wants in her romantic partner. Chinami describes Yuika as "more manly than [him]".
