High school junior Hazumu, the central character of Kashimashi Girl Meets Girl (2006), is a fragile, sensitive boy who's more comfortable around plants than people. His friend Tomari has protected him since he was a child, but she joins his other friends, urging him to declare his love for Yasuna. When Yasuna rejects him, Hazumu wanders on a nearby mountain--and is hit by an alien spaceship when it crashes. The aliens regenerate his injured body, but they change his gender in the process. Hazumu takes the change calmly, although he has to learn to dress and behave like a proper Japanese girl. Although she regrets having rejected Hazuma when he was male, Yasuna likes him as a girl. Their affection makes Tomari jealous. Kashimashi sometimes feels like the female equivalent of a yaoi romance; it makes Gakuen Heaven and Revolutionary Girl Utena feel as normal as "The Bobsey Twins." In Japanese only. (Rated 13 and older: cartoon violence, nudity, risqué humor, suggested lesbianism) --Charles Solomon

Product Description

On a warm, cloudy afternoon, Tomari bursts in on two girls from her class, Hazumu and Yasuna, sharing a tender first kiss. Her heart breaks... from jealousy. Hazumu was born a boy, but he certainly doesn't act it. He's sensitive, delicate, and loves gardening. Lucky for him, he grew up with the tomboy Tomari, who is always there to protect him. Despite her own feelings, she pushes Hazumu to confess his love to the elegant Yasuna. After Yasuna rejects him, he retreats into the mountains in despair. This begins the strange series of events that changes him into a her, and earns her the love of both Yasuna and Tomari.

4.0 out of 5 stars For People Who Like Shoojo Anime June 15, 2007
Verified Purchase
The basic plot for this shoojo anime is a love triangle involving three girls in high school. One of the girls was originally a boy, but got changed into a girl during an unfortunate encounter with space aliens.

The principal focus of this anime (like most shoojo anime) is on feelings and relationships. People who like mecha and demons should look elsewhere for entertainment.

Since I have two daughters and a granddaughter, I am rather fond of girls in general, and I particularly like the three main characters in this anime. I wish them well in their struggles with their feelings, although I do wonder why they need to form a triangle; why can't they just be three together, instead of splitting into a bonded pair and somebody who gets left out?

This anime is very well done, so far as the main characters are concerned. I took off one star for the bizarre treatment of adults.

4.0 out of 5 stars Role reversal or Gender Reversal August 8, 2007
An interesting take on the old love triangle. A boy in love with one girl while another is in love with him that is until the boy is accidentally turned into a girl after a close encounter with an alien space ship. Now that he is a she his/her romantic problems get even more confusing with both the girls in her life and the boy who was his now her best friend.
Note: this is subtitled only, there is no English dialogue and the subtitles themselves are a bit large and distracting but otherwise its an interesting story and nicely animated.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Story, Bad Voice acting. January 1, 2013
By KevinB
Hazumu confesses his love to Yasuna, but he is rejected. One day he is nearly killed by an alien space ship that crashes. The aliens are able to save his life, but somehow he is turned into a girl during the process. Now Hazumu has to adjust to being a girl. He was never a boyish dude, so it's not all that hard. Now Hazumu is caught in a love triangle with her old tomboyish friend, Tomari, and Yasuna. Yasuna discovers that she has feelings for Hazumu, now that he's a she. That's pretty mean if you ask me. The whole get lost attitude changes now that Hazumu is a hot chick. But that's the way this series goes.

This anime has a very different type of atmosphere to it. It's a bit like Destiny of the Shrine Maiden, and it also reminds me of Kanokon. My only complaint is that the voice actors are bad. That's probably why it reminds me of Kanokon lol. The animation, soundtrack, and chracters are all very well done. It's fun, dramatic, funny, and emotional. The language isn't too overboard, and the fanservice is kinda conservative most of the time. So far, there isn't any nudity. It's rated 13 and up, so it's probably acceptable for most audiences...provided that they don't mind the whole Yuri theme, even though it's lighter than most of the stuff in that genre. I am enjoying this anime so far, and I hope it keeps getting better.

5.0 out of 5 stars What an Anime! March 23, 2008
Verified Purchase
This is one of the best anime I have seen in a long time. I have always loved Japanese romantic comedies but this one is really among the top. I love how it is heartwarming when it wants to be yet is absolutely hilarious at other times, the perfect blend of romance and comedy. This anime contains some content that makes it kinda yuri but since it's not part of Seven Seas' Strawberry line I guess it isn't considered so. I would recommend it to anyone over the age of 15 because there is a good amount of non sexual nudity and some dirty jokes, but anyone hoping for some hardcore yuri might want to look elsewhere. The only thing that could have possibly made it better is if it was longer. By the way this anime has no English track so if you don't want to read subtitles and don't understand Japanese don't get it, otherwise for the love of God get it.

The Final OVA
This is an old thread, but I feel compelled to comment. I thought the final OVA was very enjoyable. It didn't have the emotional impact as where the original ending seemed to be heading, but it was nonetheless a charming, satisfying fairytale ending of sorts.

I cannot understand some people... Read More
