I was asked to critically analyze this piece and this comment is exactly that. It has a unique setting where we can see both sides of the story simultaneously and the hardships that the two main characters (of the same name) go through. There were some points which I would like to elaborate on. These are all my perspective and I think if improved, this could be a very good novel (it already is, but you know what I mean.) First, stability of updates. Seeing that the chapters are long I can give you a little leeway for the lack of continued updates. But the story has potential and the only way for it to flourish is if you update regularly. You need to flesh out the characters a little more. I have read too little to be absolutely sure, but I think there can be more put into the characters to make them come alive. Some of the humor was to my taste, but it fell flat at times. I take full responsibility for that. It's not the author's fault. The writing quality is good and even though there is scope for improvement (as there is with everyone), I believe that the author can do so with a little practice. All in all, good job. Keep writing.

Well, this is a fun read! Totally recommended for fans of fantasy and isekai genre. The writing is excellent, and each chapter was long (I wish the author broke down the long chapter and create more chapters though...). I definitely enjoyed the author's writing style. In the novel, the two characters with almost the same name from two different worlds switched place. I thought the author did a great job describing the two worlds and differentiating the characters with almost the same name. It was too early to tell about the plot as there was not much chapter, but as long as the author did not give up on this novel, I believe it's going to turn out great! Good luck, author.

Woo! It's like an Arata Katagiri situation but better! Just like two Aratas switching places, the protagonists Yuri Tachibana and Tachibana Yuri switch. Furthermore, we get a sci-fi world instead of a normal fantasy world, which is quite unique. The two Yuris have polar opposite personalities, which lead to wild situations on both worlds. While the story has eleven chapters when I wrote this, we can see a lot of potential with the uniqueness of the worlds. In addition, the grammar and writing style is pretty good. While there are some errors, it doesn't deviate from the reading. Definitely recommended for Japanese LN lovers with a different spin from the standard isekai. >3</

I'm simply overjoyed to find a Japanese or anime/manga-ish setting as I don't see them a lot in this portal. I don't usually read fantasy novels but if mixed with the said setting and isekai genre, I got to like this. The description and elaboration of the world is great and the characters are well-written and described. I've seen and read the kind of story elsewhere but it never gets old and new concepts are being established. But there are some things that did not sit well, like the concept where Sekai terms are generally Japanese terms even though MC ought to be able to understand it since he himself is Japanese. With all that said, Cross Worlds is a great story and I'll be sure to continue reading the novel. Keep up the good work! :)

Really great writing! I like how they swapped but the two worlds are affected by one another. I’d like a ring that can store things too! The characters personality shine quite well, and the descriptions are good. The settings are pretty easy to follow, and there’s some nice comedy in here too. This is a nice spin on the other world theme. The only suggestion I have is to make the chapters shorter. They’re easier to digest while on a mobile device, and it allows us to remember parts we like so we can comment. Also, it’ll allow you to “update more often,” so that might reduce the upload frequently stress of writers.

The writing is great and creative. A chapter is long and describe things rather descriptively. But, me here as a person with lack of focus, I think that 40 page chapter could easily tire the readers and became boring if you couldn't engage the readers into reading your novel. Nonetheless, keep improving, you write well.

Readability and sentence variety is high. The author does not overuse passive voice. The only gripe I have would be that he has a slight tendency to overuse words- such as was. Still the plot is progressing as the synopsis promised and definitely worth a read for anyone interested in body swapping etc.

The characters are unique, the world background is explained clearly. The story is a mix of comedy with a tinge of seriousness. I'm looking forward to the plot and how the two Yuri's deal with their switch. Overall, it's an interesting novel for people looking for interesting situations. :)

Amazing story. A full pack of Action, Magic and Humour. The parallel world concept has been explained perfectly. First I was like the MC has to die and then swap worlds-like reincarnation but what I read was even better. Please upload the next chapter... Can't wait to read

This review is part of a review swap and valid as of chapter seven. Written in third person multiple point of view in past tense. We have Japan, as in the Japan today, and then there is the nineteenth century British empire, with spaceships and magic. Well, maybe no spaceship, and they're kind of Japanese rather than British, and they dress in jeans. Did you see how I didn't remove magic from the list? There's a reason, and the lack of spaceship is made up for by future tech inc delivering everything you need, so a solid science fantasy setting. Oh, and they're clones, which really doesn't make any sense at all since they aren't, not really. Now, grab one male lead from today's Japan and drop him into the British empire that's Japanese after all. Ensure balance by swapping him for his imperial counterpart. These are the two stories of two strangers in two strange lands. Seven chapters barely bring us well into the introduction, and characters are stil being introduced, but it's a really sweet read this far. Without problems? No, there are several problems. Given the major differences in history and biology between the two worlds there's simply no acceptable reasons a lot of characters have body doubles in the other world. The story also fails the duck test rather badly. Japanese is spoken in both worlds. That's even made explicit at one point. Yet the imperial version uses Japanese versions of several words whereas English is used in modern Japan. Sounds confusing? It is. For example, a Japanese person, speaking Japanese, wouldn't be able to discern between 'ningen' and 'human'. Hence a lot of jokes simply go down the drain. But it's not a dealbreaker. Turn off that part of your brain and enjoy what looks like the start of a light hearted crazy science fantasy story. Stars: Writing quality: Four stars. Headhopping galore, non-standard English and jumping betwen present and past tense detracts a bit. Still an overall pleasant read. Updates: Seven chapters. Nothing to complain about yet. Five stars. Development: Yep. This is done right. Just shake off your disbelief and enjoy the ride. Five stars. Characters: Not even the body doubles have the same personalities. Five stars. World: If you are truly able to shrug off the in-story impossibilities (as defined by what makes sense within the scope of the story) this is a five star. I can't, so four stars from me. I'll enjoy the ride myself. It goes into my library.

This is an amazing story! The switched between a Prince and a normal guy into a different world is brilliantly woven. Every chapter is packed with entertainment, magical activity and exciting adventure awaits the reader. The author has a wild and wide imagination, he can make you believe magic and parallel universe. So real, feels like you enter it yourself. I like Tachibana best, the fake Prince! When he's back to earth his life will never be the same again. Am looking forward to Prince Yuri's adventures on earth. Anyways...writing quality is good. Story development is fantastic! Character design is superb, they are relatable and adorable. I can recommend this novel to anyone who loves adventure! Good job Author! Keep it up.

The story so far is exciting and I'm looking forward for the next update. It's a little confusing with the two character having the same name and everything but after awhile, I got use to it. Great job & keep up the good work!

Vice-Versa is an alternate world story, the character Tachibana gets transported to an alternate world where the use of magic is the norm. He has a Doppelganger also bearing the same name as him. Tachibana is now faced with the dilemma of taking up the royal position in the alternate world and act in place of same name Doppleganger after his identity is exposed to the parents of the "real" Tachibana in the alternate world.
