Boku to Boku is a comedic Otokonoko Genre manga about a tomboy who wishes she could be girlier, her crossdressing best friend, and their adventures together. It ran for 2 volumes.


Boku to Boku contains examples of:

  • Ambiguous Gender Identity: Jun's mother. She's referred to with female pronouns but one joke heavily implied that is transgender.
  • Camp Straight: Asou's a girly guy who likes having his hair long and crossdressing, however that doesn't stop him from having a crush on Yuuki. Unfortunately for him, Yuuki prefers her guys less effeminate.
  • Even the Girls Want Her: Subverted when Yuuki gets asked out by a cute girl. She isn't interested in girls but goes along anyway. As it turns out, her date is actually a crossdressing boy named Asou.
  • Lady Looks Like a Dude: With her short hair and tomboyish clothing sense, Yuuki frequently gets mistaken for a guy. It gets to the point when she dresses in a swimsuit, a couple of guys think she's a crossdresser.

  • No Romantic Resolution: Due to cancellation.
  • Shading Colour Dissonance:
    • Jun's hair is a medium shade of brown, however his pale shading suggests a much lighter tone.
    • Izumi has bright red hair, but his dark shading implies brown or black hair.
  • Tomboy Angst: Yuuki hates being so tomboyish but her attempts to change always end in Femininity Failure.
  • Unsettling Gender Reveal:
    • Happens in the first chapter when Yuuki learns Jun is a boy.
    • Yuuki thought Asou was a girl until she accidentally saw him while he was peeing. Jun guessed that he was a crossdresser.
  • Wholesome Crossdresser: Both Asou and Junichirou mainly crossdress. Jun began crossdressing when his Fashion Designer mom started making him dress up in drag.
