Tooboe Bookmark is a Furry Webcomic by Kemono artist cotton. Although all of the main characters are gay and many jokes and sexual references are made, the comic is kept safe for work.

The story follows Sousuke Natsume and Nitobe Tetsuru, who wake up one day to find their bodies being swapped for an unknown reason, and their friends Fukuzawa Yukihide and Noguchi Tadashi. Natsume and Nitobe try to resume their normal activities despite the swap, although their largely different personalities lead to some problems with this. In addition, Natsume and Nitobe are in love with each other, but neither want to admit it out of fear that they would be rejected. In addition, Noguchi is in love with Nitobe as well. Although the comic has a strong focus on the romantic relationships of the characters, it does begin to develop a deeper story as the characters look into Nitobe and Natsume's body swap.


This work provides examples of:

  • Be Careful What You Wish For: Natsume and Jii's power, Nagiyose, has the ability to grant wishes subconsciously. Jii reveals that this resulted in the death of one of his superiors when Jii wished to be saved by him.
  • Cannot Spit It Out: Neither Natsume or Nitobe will admit their feelings to each other. Noguchi was also like this, until he accidentally revealed it to Nitobe before he found out the two had swapped bodies.
  • Cast Full of Gay / Everyone Is Gay: Natsume, Nitobe, Fukuzawa, and Noguchi are all gay. In addition, the bookstore's manager, Keitaro, and area manager, Iwakura, are gay, and it's implied that Fujio, Noguchi's karate instructor, and Kariga are also gay.
  • Cast of Snowflakes: Expected, since the game makes use of Kemono characters.
  • Cerebus Syndrome: The comic starts out like a Slice of Life comic, but as it goes on, the comic becomes noticeably more serious as the characters learn more about Natsume and Nitobe's body swap, especially after Natsume leaves to live in the mountains with his grandfather due to the Nagiyose.

  • Childhood Friend Romance: Natsume and Nitobe met in high school and have been in love with each other since, though neither will admit it.
  • Coming-Out Story: Twice, first with Noguchi to Nitobe (in Natsume's body, before Noguchi learned of the swap) and later to Natsume as well, and also from Natsume to Nitobe, who was thought to be asleep at the time.
  • Complete Immortality: Jii reveals that Nagiyose prevents the person with the ability from being harmed; any damage attempted will swap either the weapon or the person with something else (including another person, who would be hurt or killed in their place). Jii also claimed his time was "stopped" when he was 21, although it's not clear if this means he became immortal or if his body simply won't age.
  • Eyes Always Shut: Fukuzawa. Also Jii's right eye, although it is justified as he stabbed that eye out with a knife.
  • Fanservice: Particularly with Nitobe.
  • "Freaky Friday" Flip: Nitobe and Natsume's bodies are swapped.
  • Furry
  • Homoerotic Subtext: Everywhere. Considering everyone is gay, it's no surprise.
  • Hopeless Suitor: Noguchi.
  • Interspecies Romance: Justified, since it's a furry comic.
  • Invisible Parents: Averted, as Fukuzawa's father has several appearances, and Nitobe's mother and both of Natsume's parents have brief appearances as well.
  • I Want My Beloved to Be Happy: Noguchi to Nitobe.
  • Keet: Natsume.
  • Kemono
  • Magical Eye: Jii reveals that the Nagiyose can be weakened by destroying one's eyes.
  • Manly Gay: Nitobe.
  • Megane: Ninomiya, Kiri, and Kariga.
  • Pixellation: The manager, when he offers to hold a copy of Shirogane's Night Journey for Nitobe in exchange for sex.
  • Reality Warper: Natsume and Jii.
  • Romantic Comedy
  • Scenery Censor: Fukizawa gets drunk at one point and strips, with only his tail to hide his privates. Lampshaded in that he calls it a "makeshift mosaic".
  • Sempai/Kohai: Natsume and Nitobe.
  • Straight Gay: Almost every character. There's little Camp Gay in the comic.
  • Slice of Life: At least until the story gets more serious.
  • Too Much Information: Natsume when asked about masturbation in Nitobe's body.
  • Unlucky Childhood Friend: Noguchi.
  • Unresolved Sexual Tension: Natsume and Nitobe have feelings for each other, but are too afraid to say it because they're afraid they'll be rejected for their sexual orientation. Subverted in chapter 9 when Natsume admits his love to Nitobe and kisses him, although he thought Nitobe was asleep at the time.
  • Weaksauce Weakness: Kariga's weakness is being poked in the back. He also makes sexual moans while this is happening.
  • Younger Than They Look: Natsume, as well as his grandfather. Subverted when it's revealed that Jii isn't actually a grandfather (or even related to Natsume), and that Jii is just a nickname given due to his unusual way of writing the letter G. Subverted again when he says he actually is turning 86.
