From the author of 増殖少女プラナちゃん! comes this new series (that isn't all that new anymore).

Trivia: this is the 120th Manga of the Week...roughly. 

Title: イドル・プリテンダー, Idol Pretender
Author: 晴瀬ひろき (Haruse Hiroki)
Genre: Seinen, Comedy
Serialized in Akita Shoten CHAMPION RED Ichigo
Total Volume Count: 0 (ongoing)

Series Summary from MangaUpdates:
Eita Chinami who aims to be a man among men accidentaly drinks a very expensive magical medicine that change his gender. And the only way she (formerly he) can change back to normal is to buy again that very expensive medicine. And his friend tells him the fastest way to do that is to become an idol. 
Kenn's Comment: Could it get any better? Deliciously wonderful girls coupled with Haruse's deliciously moe art. The story isn't exactly anything special, but it does leave a lot of room for maneuvering. These gender-bender stories tend to flop (from experience, Akane Overdrive, Pretty Face) so I'm hoping this one breaks the mold. Not expecting any major plot twists, and hoping for simple, bubbly moe fun. Haruse does have a knack at making characters so ridiculously moe that your pancreas stops working, so I'm confident that I'll enjoy this. 

tl;dr A nice easy read that's very, very easy on the eyes.
