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. At the end of the story, he ditches the girl he was crushing on, and who just confessed to him, for a guy who he only became attracted because he became a girl.
  • 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.
