What if you discovered your friend had an adorable alter ego?

Some Japanese high school boys have the uncanny ability to turn into charming girls with a bat of an eyelid.

Japanese Twitter user @Elmon_0715 is one such crossdresser gifted with androgynous looks, and his hobby has made some of his women followers green with envy.

▼ This 17-year old high school student just loves taking selfies.

▼ His parents might not know about his
crossdressing antics, but the Internet does!

Dressing up as the opposite sex is no doubt a growing trend, but it’s one thing to read about it and yet another to find out by accident that your buddy’s into the hobby.

Vast as the Internet may be, it still didn’t take long before a friend stumbled across @Elmon_0715’s Twitter page. Bewildered, he confronted him over LINE, a popular messaging app in Japan.

▼ The conversation unfolded quickly, with @Elmon_0715 on the right
and his friend on the left. (Translation below)

“Hey.”

“That’s you right?”

“Huh? What’s this all of a sudden?”

“I mean if you look at the room, that’s your home.”
“Are you serious?”

“I’m sorry.”
“You find it revolting?”

“I’ll be honest.”

“Okay, what is it?”

“If you go out with me, I’ll keep my mouth shut.”

“What?”

The Internet’s gaze swung toward @Elmon_0715 with just that one tweet, propelling his followers from 4,000 to over 47,000 in the space of a few days. A follower even went as far as drawing a comic depicting the LINE exchange.

▼ So when is this going to serialize?

@Elmon_0715 has not revealed the actual outcome of the exchange thus far, and netizens were thoroughly amused:

“This story has suddenly taken an interesting turn.”
“I think he’s testing the waters.”
“What’s this? It’s like a story straight out of porn. I wish you two happiness.”
“My stomach’s hurting from all the laughing. Stop it!”
“Woah woah slow down! Do not go down the forbidden path.”

Will love blossom, or will the friend’s not-so-subtle advances fail to bear fruit? We may never know. But what we do know is that this incident is by no means the first of its kind, as a student apparently also accidentally caught his male teacher cosplaying as characters of the opposite sex.
