Ratings & Reviews
Add a star if you like angsty drama
There are five members of the cultural club. Their personalities all seem pretty open and straightforward. Then, for no good reason, an alien or supernatural intelligence possesses their teacher, and amuses itself by making the kids swap bodies, and when it gets bored with this, tries out other alterations to mess with them.
This eventually brings them all in contact which each other's deeply guarded secrets, true personalities and insecurities, so they can help sort out their friends' problems and become closer.
Some mild humor, but mostly psychological/emotional stuff that is not as deep or profound or believable as the series seems to think. Teenagers who are trying to 'find themselves' would probably enjoy this and find it more thought-provoking than older, more jaded audiences.
All the same, if you like romantic/navel-gazing/teen-angst drama, it's probably worth a watch. I personally prefer comedy and adventure, so found this watchable but not all that interesting.
The characters are well developed and I loved their growth in the series. It is one of the few anime where I can say that I really cared about the characters.
