Body Swap Manga
The manga scene is filled with inventive tropes that stray away from realism and introduce bizarre scenarios many fantasize about experiencing in real life. Body swapping is a beloved fantasy motif that adds an unorthodox spin to romance and comedy manga. From temporary switches to permanent exchanges, finding your mind trapped in an unfamiliar body always leads to unexpected hijinks.

While commonly seen in romantic comedies, body-swapping manga can be surprisingly dramatic and grounded, exploring themes of identity and communication. There's no more effective way to see the world through someone else's eyes than physically swap bodies with them, and these manga series execute this concept best.
Most body-swapping stories culminate with the heroes finding their way back to their original forms. Shinshunki Bitter Change explores what happens when that rightful conclusion never comes. Before switching bodies as kids, Yui Ootsuka and Yuuta Kimura were barely acquainted classmates.
No matter how close they grew trying to return to their places, nothing helped. Giving up on reversing the change, Yui and Yuuta accept their fates and continue living fake lives. Yet, the teens didn't expect just how hard growing up in someone else's body might be.
Unlike most lighthearted examples of the body-swapping trope, the shounen-ai manhwa At the End of the Road is mature and dramatic. After a car accident, the story's hero Taemin swaps bodies with Siwon, a timid victim of bullying.

Between the boys' enigmatic past and uncertain future, much needs to be resolved for their relationship to blossom in these bizarre circumstances.
Behind closed doors, however, Azusa obsesses over a pop idol Chikashi Chida. Everything crumbles after a fateful concert during which she swaps bodies with her beloved superstar. Unsure if she was cursed or blessed, Azusa must navigate the newfound lifestyle and relationship with Chikashi.
While many body-swapping stories focus on the funny aspects of living someone else's life, "X" Method In The Dead Of Night explores the potentially horrific consequences of such an exchange. Observing his sister Yui lazing around all day, Hiroki Kamiya dreams of switching bodies with a girl.
When a mysterious messenger tells Hiroki of a way to swap bodies with a stranger, he lends his form to a famous female idol. Unfortunately, he does not expect to return from his little expedition to his sister's corpse lying by his feet.
Switching bodies with someone successful and popular might sound like a distant dream for most. Yet, the dull, unattractive, and unlikable Zenko Umine from Sora wo Kakeru Yodaka made her ambition a reality, swapping bodies with the school's darling.
Unfortunately for the series heroine, Ayumi Kohinata, her perfect life was stolen by Umine, who doesn't think about switching back after feeling mistreated her entire life. However, no one can break Ayumi's determination to return to her body and win back her friends, family, and lover.
Choko's cool-headed yet overprotective brother Hayate wants to sabotage all of his twin's romantic endeavors. He succeeds, unexpectedly, as the two fall down the stairs and swap bodies. Things get even messier when Tsukiyono starts falling for Hayate trapped in Choko's body.
Uehara succeeds at keeping his feelings a secret until Momoi's grandfather accidentally swaps the teens' bodies. While Uehara can't wait to return to being a boy, Momoi starts liking her new body a bit too much.
The newfound NEET's singular outside activity includes observing Mari Yoshizaki, a local high school beauty, during his convenience store runs. Yet, Isao's aspirations for a new beginning reawaken when he suddenly swaps bodies with his secret crush. Now stuck inside Mari, Isao decides to continue living in the girl's place.
While most body-swapping series remain niche cult classics, Kokoro Connect found recognition all across the anime community. Despite not fitting in anywhere else, the manga's heroes, Taichi, Iori, Himeko, Yoshifumi, and Yui, found their place among each other in Yamaboshi Academy's Student Cultural Society.
They soon find out how many secrets their friends keep after randomly swapping bodies with each other. Bonds that seemed as close as they could get grew even tighter through the trials and tribulations of living in each other's shoes.
Body swaps, first popularized in Western anglophone culture by the personal identity chapter of John Locke's Essay Concerning Human Understanding, have been a common storytelling device in fiction media. Novels such as Vice Versa (1882) and Freaky Friday (1972) have inspired numerous film adaptations and retellings, as well as television series and episodes, many with titles derived from "Freaky Friday". In 2013, Disney Channel held a Freaky Freakend with seven shows that featured body-swapping episodes.[a] This list features exchanges between two beings, and thus excludes similar phenomena of body hopping, spirit possession, transmigration, and avatars, unless the target being's mind is conversely placed in the source's body. It also excludes age transformations that are sometimes reviewed or promoted as body swaps, as in the movies Big and 17 Again; identity/role swaps, typically between clones, look-alikes, or doppelgängers; and characters with multiple personalities.
Some graphic novels and manga series feature stories that center around a body swap, while others have a story arc or a character that body swaps. These include anime and live-action adaptations if the original storyline was in the manga or comic.
