In the latest volume of the acclaimed series about transgendered kidsexploring their unfolding identities, we've reached a big event; the junior highschool entrance ceremony. The boys wear black uniforms with stand-up collarsbased on mid-19th century European military uniforms and the girls wear navyblazers, tan skirts, and red ribbon neckties. Enter our heroes; Nitori-kun isforced to wear a boy's uniform while Takatsuki-san has to wear a girl's! Yet onegirl "Sarashia Chizuru" draws stares, whispers, and pointed fingers,because this long-haired beauty is wearing a boy's uniform. Both Nitori-kun andTakatsuki-san are awed by the girl's courage, but Takatsuki-san is particularlyvexed by their own faintheartedness. They envy more than a few other studentswho experience such liberty in wearing either uniform and ponder what itultimately means about themselves. Envy and jealousy are prominent themes inVolume 5: Chiba-san is jealous of Takatsuki-san, for whom Nitori-kun stillcarries a tortch. Maho envies Anna-chan's professionalism as a model. AndChii-chan's loyal sidekick, Shiri Momoko, is intensely jealous of anyone in whomChii-chan shows the slightest interest. And so our protagonists set off on thejourney to adolescence.
