Description
From Go! Comi:
In the play of life, all Hikaru Takabayashi wanted was to be part of the scenery. Tormented by jealous schoolmates ever since she appeared in a famous commercial in grade-school, Hikaru transfers to a prestigious all-girls' academy where she hopes to settle down to a quiet life of anonymity. But when her new roommate turns out to be the super-popular TV idol Izumi Kido, Hikaru finds herself thrown smack in the spotlight's glare once more!

And as if living with a celebrity wasn’t bad enough, Hikaru discovers that there’s more to Izumi than her “good girl” image—she’s a he! And this is only the first of Izumi's many dangerous secrets! Now Hikaru’s the unwilling star player in a madcap tale of deception, abduction, humiliation and blackmail…you know—the usual romantic stuff.

thought it would be a nice reversal from the girl in disguise mangas that have generally been good but boy...it starts off weird which left a bad taste in my mouth throughout, even during the little good this series has.

Sexual assault, how romantic   
Rating: N/A

This starts off with the love interest pushing the female protagonist down stairs and photographing her naked while she lies unconscious, then his henchman threatens her life with a sword to her throat and blackmails her with the nude photos. Later, he pins her down on a bed and tears her clothes off while threatening to rape her. This mean-spirited manga wallows in bullying and assault. This may work for some, sure there are many twisted love stories out there... but I think readers deserve to know what they are getting into, hence this comment.

I love the story's premise, and I just adore the guy that dresses up as a girl. He's too cute---although he can be psychopathic and severe (like when he sexually harassed the poor main character). His character was never really developed--except in terms of attractiveness (but who needs that? Humph. bigrazz ) The girl fell in love way too quickly and way too deeply with the other dude at the beginning, and I just simply cannot comprehend how.

(Perhaps it's because I firmly believe in the slow type of love)... I did enjoy seeing how she stood back up and got over him though. That was pretty inspirational.

I couldn't stand the one dimensional storytelling at many points throughout the series, but I kept reading because I loved the premise of having a cross-dressing celebrity right under the same roof. Ho ho ho. Also, many characters had no purpose and would just randomly appear--such as the hot butler/bodyguard guy. What is he even doing?

The art was good, but it would be awkward at times. I, for one, eventually got so tired of seeing the girl's crying face I would close my eyes and sigh when I see it. The problem with this manga was its never-ending series of drama and the girl's inability to solve them.

And because the author whipped through every arc so fast, I never had a chance to get attached to any of the characters. Not even my favorite guy. Come on now.

p.s. I feel like this author usually writes more R-rated manga because some of the parts throughout this series felt very....crude. Like, stripping people down and stuff. sad

Really Good

This is one of the few series i remember how it did end. i have read a lot of mangas and most endings are rushed or just hanging in there without any conclusion which makes me think what if scenarios and results in a barely remembered novel. reading this again after a few years i still took the same pleasure i did back then even when i knew where it was going. its a good story told in a good many words, doesn't drag and i like the art to boot too. All in all i happily give one of my few full marks for this manga and happily recommend it to any manga lover even if you are not into the shoujo gentre much.
One last word: if i have to say one thing negative about this manga, there are many time slips. it could have been easily two times longer with a full told story with nothing extra added. However mangaka is nice and you are tipped about what happened in this spaces between two chapters so its not that big of a deal (hence i didn't give any minus to the rating i gave)

It's way too short. The plot runs so fast that I felt unable to get into the characters' feelings (like the relationship between Hikaru and the teacher).

But I really liked the series, even if love triangles are not my thing - the personalities of the characters were exactly to my taste.

Here's the thing. I seriously, seriously thought that this is a yaoi even if it's not tagged as one. The girl protagonist is not in anyway romantically involved with the 2 main guys--at first. In fact, she even made comments early on that she suspects there is something going on with them. Haha. Now, I didn't mind if this thing turned out to be a yaoi, but for shoujo fans, don't worry, it's not yaoi.

The romance takes sometimes to develop, which I think is a nice change from the typical love-at-first-sight.

For people who are looking for showbiz manga, this is it. Although it doesn't go too much in depth into the working the business, but it's there. The plot revolves around the romance and the gender bending than the showbiz.

The art is absolutely wonderful. Truly beautiful.

Just finished the whole series in one night! Its THAT engaging...
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
and for once the girl didn't chose the loser cheater and made the right decision to get over him and start a new life with someone else. Its realistic in this sense.Also i enjoy manga where at the beginning the obvious hero isnt romantically involved with the main character, but it comes as a surprise with plot twists...
very very engaging and feel good manga.. though the ending was slightly rushed.

The way I can tell rather or not a Shoujo merits a high score is rather or not it makes me want to go out and buy it. This was not one of those. Nothing new, here. The art is well done but so what? I was disappointed.

one thing that's driving me to post a comment is a gratitude for a good read...

it was a good read for passing time... i won't forget this..

after reading it, you'll just find your way grateful taking the time and ending it with a speechless smile--like saying, "I had a really GREAT time."

anyway, i think smiles don't need speeches--"sup wida 'speechless smile'?" haha
I RECOMMEND YOU READ THIS. you'll find your way smiling at the end.

yeah that's it!! after reading the comment down there...i found the right word.."HEARTWARMING"
