TR:
[I'm still getting taller.]

TC:
[I've already grown past 170cm.]

BC:
[Broad shoulders…]

BL:
[Skinny, so my bones show and my muscles stand out.]

Page 151-

TR:
[I don't even have any girlish curves. No fat to soften my body shape.]

TC:
[Girly dresses are depressingly unbecoming on me.]
(I'm off…)

TL:
[I was born with this naturally clunky body.]

MR:
[When I go in the girl's bathroom…]

MC:
EEEEEK!! A pervert!!

ML:
Hey, mister! The men's room is over there!
There!
[In the same way]

Page 152-

TR:
[I get girls confessing to me quite often, too.]
Come on, hurry up!
But, but…
SFX: wriggle wriggle wriggle

TC:
Um um um…

MC:
Please read this!!

BR:
[This is the third person this month.]

BC:
Eek! Eek! Eek!
(You did it!)

BL:
[You have such a cool expression and large pecs. Plus your smile is very kind, and you look like you'd be so nice and caring. Due to all of that, I must confess: I love you.]

Page 153-

TR:
Wait!
I'm sorry to tell you this,
but I'm a woman.

TC:
(WHAT?!)
You're kidding!!

TL:
See?
(grope)

MR:
Th-
that's fine too!
SFX: badump badump badump badump

MC:
I still love you!
SFX: squeeze

ML:
SFX: Guh!
Please, may I call you 'big sister'??

BR:
[First I'm gay, then I'm a cross dresser.]
(He believes it already.)

BC:
[Even the transexual believes it.]
(Huh?)

BL:
[I'm a woman that can only be seen as a man.]
(That's me.)
And I'm surrounded by a bunch of degenerate perverts.
[Now it's lesbians…]

Page 154-

TR:
Hey you!
SFX: tap

TC:
Hm?
Hey,
even been interested in show business?

TL:
Sh-
Show business?!
SFX: startle

MR:
If you want some dance lessons,
please stop by!
I'm sure you'd end up the 'top star' at my shop~

BC:
At J's Boys All Men strip joint?!

ML:
N-no thank you!!

Page 155-

TR:
Aw, really? What a waste...
Leaving all your potential untapped!

TC:
If strip clubs aren't your thing, at least come visit us in 2-chome!
(Note: 2-chome is a famous gay club district in Tokyo's Shinjuku area.)

TL:
(Waaahh!)
[This is all I get all the time!]

MR:
I'll wear one! I will!
I'll but on a skirt and show everyone who's a girl!

ML:
SFX: huff huff huff

BC:
(Where is my skirt?!)

BL:
Ack!

Page 156-

TR:
SFX: GRAAAHHHH!!!
This looks terrible on me!!
Too terrible!!

TL:
H-
Hiro…

Hiro…-kun
That doesn't look good on you at all…

BR:
[And as my cousin Tohru-chan looked upon me…]

BC:
A friend of mine has a stylist.
We can get their help to fix this.

BL:
[He said he'd help me change back.]

Page 157-

TR:
Oh, how cute!
But you're adorable as is!

TC:
But,
I guess if you want to look more like a girl…

TL:
Leave it to US!

BR:
Y-
Yes, please!
[A pro's magic touch!]

BC:
[With the strange sorcery of a hair and make up specialist and stylist…]
[Hiro can change.]

Page 158-

TL:
Is this…
Me??
(See!)
Beautiful!
Just beautiful!

BR:
Ah, how sad! We're no match at all!
We women can't even compete!
(Right?)
(I know!)

ML:
Come on, I'm a girl,
too you know.

BL:
Oo, he's getting into it!
(Yay!)
(You go, girl!)
Right!
That's the spirit!

Page 159-

TR:
Tohru-chan!!
(You little!!)

TC:
What did you say to those girls?!
Huh?
What...?

TL:
They totally thought I was a transexual!!

MR:
No they didn't!
I mean, I did ask for them to help "make you into a woman," but…

ML:
They helped you change clothes, right?
They'd be able to tell by your body...

BR:
They asked if the
surgery hurt!!

Page 160-

TR:
[Tohru-chan fell over laughing saying that it's 'understandable considering my height and deep voice.']
I'm dying!
SFX: kick

TC:
What's happened to me?
This sucks…

TL:
[It's not like I can help my height or my voice, you know…]

MR:
[What do I do?!]

BL:
I'm gay!

Page 161-

TR:
[I overheard the confession from his own mouth.]

TL:
[I knew it. I knew…
He was… that kind of a guy.]

BR:
[I-I'm]
[I'm different, though!]

BL:
[I'm not gay!]

Page 162-

TR:
Ayumu!
Lookie! It's a special about trannies!

TL:
Oh, how pretty!
That's really a man?
You'd never believe it! Wow!

MR:
There are a lot of these types of shows now.

MC:
[That's true…]
[Compared to things like creepy kogyaru*…]
(Note: Crazily dressed young women of fashion in Japan.)

ML:
[or shows where secretaries decide a man's monetary worth…]

BR:
[Trannies seem harmless, cute, innocent even…]

Page 163-

TR:
They're saying that trans people are the 'third gender.' Not that I care.

TC:
It's too bad, though.
They can't seem to get real work, you know.

TL:
They can only get hired by gay bars and stuff, right?
Oh! Speaking of which!

BR:
How's your little gay boy doing?

BC:
SFX: pssh

BL:
Good of him not to be fired yet.
It's fine as long as he's not in drag, yeah?
Gay or no.
SFX: gulp gulp gulp

Page 164-

TC:
Hey, hey. By the way!
About that film review column…
Still haven't fixed me up?

MC:
Come on, Ayumu…

ML:
[Could this woman be more shameless?]

BC:
[With writing skills like that, she still things she'll be able to go pro?]

BL:
Gotta have connections to get ahead in this world.
Getting you to do this for me makes things go much faster. I'm so lucky!

Page 165-

TR:
[I don't care if you're my lover, my friend, or my freaking relative…]

TL:
[If you've got no talent, not even connections will save you.]

MR:
And if it ends up getting serialized, you can leave the title of the column to me! I've already thought of one!
The illustrations should be eye-catching and…

MC:
[If you have the free time to think about things like that…]

ML:
[Do something about your writing level!]
Hey! What's the pay like for these pieces?

BC:
SFX: twitch

BL:
Hey!
What's wrong?

Page 166-

TR:
Got quite a lot of confidence,
don't you think?

TC:
O-
Of course I do!
I spent all those years in Paris for my career.

TL:
I've got much more going for me than your average lukewarm secretary!

MR:
After three years living in Paris, how are you this terrible?

ML:
Huh?!

BR:
What are you trying to say?

Page 167-

MR:
Oh, oh my!
Hiro-kun, you're gorgeous!

MC:
Wow!
I guess you can spruce up, huh?
I'm shocked.
(You make a great cross dresser.)

ML:
(Could you please not say it like that?)

BC:
And so, I'm here to say
that I'm going back to being a woman,
Sensei.

Page 168-

TR:
You're really sure.

TC:
Yes.

MR:
Aww, and this farce was so intriguing!
What a disappointment…

ML:
And if I get fired…

BR:
If you get fired…

BL:
I'll hire you on as my personal secretary.

Page 169-

TR:
S-
Sensei…!

TC:
You're perfect for taking care of my needs.
I'd been looking for a cute boy to take the job.

MR:
Work scheduling, gathering reference material, even modeling…
I've got a lot I need done, after all.

MC:
[Secretary…]

ML:
Sensei.
[Assistant, manager]
[I don't care what she calls the attendant position.]

BR:
[I could have looked into that avenue… Now I think of it!]

BL:
[A secretary?]
[I'm too happy for words!]

Page 170-

TR:
[I'd thought that the biggest help I could be for Izumi Ruika-sensei is by being her editor…]

TC:
[But if I'm on her staff…]
[I can finally assist with my beloved Izumi masterpieces!]
[I'll be present for every literary creation!]

TL:
This is amazing!!

BR:
Thank you so much, Sensei!
If I can be of help to you…
I will do anything! I'll try my hardest!

SFX:kiss

Page 171-

TC:
If only you weren't a woman!
Sensei!

TL:
Just kidding.

MR:
Come!
Go find Fukami-san in that getup!
You've had a professional make over, after all.
Get him, while you're still so lovely!

ML:
Okay!

BC:
Don't kill yourself if he turns you down, now!
Okay!

BL:
There are plenty of nice young men still out there, don't forget!
Okay!

Page 172-

TR:
(Take care!)

TL:
But, I can't just let you go 'straight' off for your happy ending, now can I?
SFX: huff

BC:
Izumi-sensei?

BL:
Fukami-chan! Big news! Oh, just the biggest!

Page 173-

TR:
Apparently, 3 years ago Hiro-kunwent off and
got a SEX CHANGE OPERATION!
SFX: SHOCK!

MR:
I'm stunned! You can barely believe it, right?

ML:
But he really needed to find work, so he's been trying so hard to go back to being a boy…
But he just can't hide his true feminine heart.

BR:
You know,
When people are born with female brains despite the rest of their bodies…
It's got medical proofs and all that.

BL:
After all, I'm the same way, you see...

Page 174-

TC:
SFX: beep

MC:
I'm so sorry, Hiro-kun!
I just can't give you to Fukami-chan without a fight.
(I wish I felt more guilty…)
SFX: tear tear

ML:
[I mean, he was once a love of mine!]
SFX: sniff
[Please forgive my passing jealousy.]

Page 175-

TR:
[Fukami-san! Fukami-san!]
[Look at me now all dressed up!]

MC:
[Look at me now that I've gone back to womanhood!]

BC:
SFX: huff huff huff huff

Page 176-

TR:
[Fukami-san
isn't upfront with his feelings.]

TC:
[He contrary and likes to trick people…]

TL:
[If I just run up to him like last time, he'll reject me straight away.]

BR:
[I gotta avoid any accidents.]
SFX: latch

BC:
[Make it seem like fate. A totally coincidental, nonchalant meeting!]

Page 177-

TR:
Notice me!

BR:
What? What are you trying to say...?

BC:
Your writing is not at a level we'd pay money for.

BL:
You don't even know your own skill level,
I'm saying that you should stop saying and doing such aggravating things.

Page 178-

TR:
What's this?!

TC:
How high and mighty!
I don't want you decided whether my writing is worth anything or not!

MR:
Take a good look!
I'll make you regret not using my work!

BR:
Rima!

BL:
Why don't you go get buddy-buddy
with that gay boy!?
You'd make a lovely couple!

Page 179-

TR:
SFX: SLAM

MR:
[My girlfriend won't come back anymore.]

MC:
[Rima probably didn't even love me.]

ML:
[She just wanted to use my position as an editor for a famous literary magazine.]

BR:
[Why don't you go get buddy-buddy
with that gay boy!?]

BL:
Uchida…

Page 180-

TR:
[More than Rima leaving…]
[I'm depressed by this situation with you.]
How much, old man?

BR:
[Nonchalant.]
[I'm going for nonchalant.]

BC:
[Gotta make this look like a chance encounter.]

Page 181-

TR:
[Make the moment we meet seem like fate!]

TC:
[Come at me,
just at the right moment!]

Page 182-

TL:
[Fukami-san stared at me for a while.]

BC:
[Then he said…]

Page 183-

TR:
YOU IDIOT!!

BR:
What on earth do you think you're wearing?!
Come here!!
SFX: snag

BC:
Fukami-san, I-I…

Page 184-

TR:
Hiro-kun is a transexual who had a
sex change operation!

TL:
SFX: spin

Page 185-

TC:
So, did…
the surgery hurt?

MR:
Wha-
What are you saying!?

MC:
If fine.
You don't have to hide it anymore.

BC:
I've heard all about it.

ML:
[Whether you're a guy or a girl...]

Page 186-

TR:
[You're the one I love!]
Fukami-san…

TC:
[I've finally realized it.]

MC:
[And so…]
[Fukami-san made love to me.]

BC:
[And I became a full-fledged woman.]

Page 187-

TR:
W-
Wow!

TC:
[Sex change operations really are perfect!]

TL:
[He's no different from a real woman.]

MR:
[The main differences are]
[the muscle definition and skeletal structure…]
[Plus that husky voice.]
(? What?)

MC:
Don't you think…

ML:
You should have added
a bit more silicon to your chest to make them more believable?

BL:
(WHAT?!)

Page 188-

TR:
[This might not quite count as a 'Happily Ever After,' but]

TL:
[Hiro quit her job shortly after that]
[and fulfilled her dream by becoming Izumi Ruika-sensei's capable manager.]

BC:
[And Fukami-san…
to this day seems to believe that Hiro is a transexual woman…]
SFX: Hoh hoh hoho

BL:
What fun it is to play with such an intense, easily duped sort of man!
[…though that's unconfirmed.]

PART 4. END

Page 189-

TC:
HUSKY VOICE
<Extra>

MC:
Oh my, I've ended up writing another silly manga story…

ML:
(Sorry, sorry)
I'm sick of these things, what can I say.

BC:
[My formative years were spent watching things like 'Princess Knight.']
[My first love was Oscar-sama (from Rose of Versailles)!]
(It happens.)

Page 190-

TR:
That may be, but I'm not a lesbian myself!

SFX: twirl
(I'm actually married.)

TC:
[But I just love...]
SFX: rapt!
[A switched up, sexually confused world!]

(If they're pretty, I don't care if they're boys or girls!)

MR:
[First year of high school, I was really into kabuki theatre. I spent 5 years of my life avidly following it.]

ML:
[I got hooked on Japanese Women's wrestling and there was a time I was totally crazy for Crash Girls' Chigusa Nagayo*!]

(Note: A Japanese female wrestling idol group… yeah…)
(Oh youth…)

BR:
[Somehow, I never got into Takarazuka*, though.]
(Note: A Japanese all-women acting troupe]
I don't dislike it.
I even went to see it…

BC:
[But one time I mentioned that I thought that Takarazuka make up was kinda funny looking and got this really POed letter from a fan.]

(Jeez, what a pain.
You know what, fine!
I'm not going again…)
[Well, we don't even want a vulgar person like you to watch Takarazuka!

Take care]
Take care,
huh?
(sigh)

Page 191-

TR:
[In the 90s, there was a serialized story the the magazine Asuka called "Kya!"
That was my first time drawing girls in guy's clothes.]
Manga: ASUKA COMICS Murata Junko "Kya!"

TL:
[It's a story about a girl that likes getting chased by other girls]
[so she decides to debut with a guy's idol group.]

MR:
[Then in 94' there was a hit Hong Kong movie called "He's a Woman, She's a Man." I was a little surprised when I saw it.]

BR:
Anita Yuen

MC:
Carina Lau

ML:
Leslie Cheung

[Because it was a romantic comedy with a similar setting to my story "Kya!"…]

Page 192

TR:
"He's a Woman, She's a Man" lit a fire under me so I tried again!
SFX: fired up!

TL: And so, Hiro-kun of Husky Voice was created!
(Born in September 94)
SFX: TADA!

MR:
[The Hong Kong movie is set to come to theatres in Japan early next year. I wanna see!]
[I mean, Anita Yuen won the Hong Kong Best Actress Academy Award for her performance, after all!]

MC:
[Anita playing the role of a woman wanting to be a male actor. Plus, a big fan of the character of Rose.]
[Leslie the composer, worrying about his sudden "gay" attraction.]

ML:
[You'll laugh, you'll cry. It's a great example of quality human interest drama!]
[The superstar, Rose, being supported by Leslie and played by Carina Lau.]

BR:
[I saw a preview showing of "He's a Woman, She's a Man" the other day and man was I blown away!]
[The lead male actor, Leslie Cheung, totally said the same lines as my manga character Fukami!]

BC:
Whether you're a guy or a girl... who cares.
SFX: EEK!!

BL:
[I swear I watched the movie without subtitles, so I didn't steal the lines!]
It made my heart pound.
SFX: huff huff huff
