This series was really good, with the characters and the plot, but i think that the ending wasn't really... all that good. It was crammed all into 1 volume. along with the cramming, the ending was kind of cheap and main-stream. i was disappointed because i thought that with Mizuki's personality, she would fight it out or something, but her kind of giving up and going away was really disappointing.

I liked it. I haven't read many gender benders before but it is handled very well in this manga, I really enjoyed it. There was a part that got boring (the track meet "arc"), but it only lasted 2-3 volumes, so it was fine. The art was a little bothersome at first but I got used to it and it was very good in the end. I'm not going to say that it dragged on (it didn't! it was very enjoyable) but there isn't that much of a plot or conflict or drama. It's worth reading, but if you're looking for something with a lot of drama, then this probably isn't it. I'm not really adding much but her job in the end

was a bit lame. .___. Also, I feel like we never learn enough about Sano's high jump and how he does in the future and the story just didn't have enough of it, even though I said it was boring. Yeeeah. It was cute though, and I would recommend it. The ending was decent. It wasn't bad and it leaves you feeling complete, but it lacked a bit of pizzaz.

Classic~

I'm sincerely baffled by some of the reviews. My opinion is that perhaps they began reading Hana Kimi after having already read shoujo with similar plots? Maybe because this was one of my firsts shoujo manga AND my first crossdressing one that it has stuck with me for almost five years?

Obviously, it's popular. With a Japanese drama adaptation and a Korean drama adaptation in the making. But what some people lack while reading the manga, if they're just beginning to read it now, it's that it is a classic.

It's one extremely worthy of adding onto your library and having said you've read it because it's just THAT much of a classic.

Ignore the bad reviews, they might be very misleading. Give it a try and YOU be the judge.

Characters: 10/10
Plot: 10/10 (clique, but it's one of the ones that BEGAN the clique of a girl crossdressing as boy)
Art: 8/10

Correct me if I'm wrong, but this is not supposed to be a deep, thought-provoking manga. Quite frankly, I love that about it. It's light, humorous, interesting, and -- I have to admit it -- I love the main guy character. XD It's one of my all-time favorite shoujo mangas. The artwork is really pretty, too. And, EXTREME PLUS: it doesn't glorify rape, which is something I've found too many mangas do. The main guy character keeps his hands to himself, even when he's stuck in some precarious, cliche situations. :3 So.. 10/10 for me. I love it. <3 (Even though the ending was so quick... Bah.)

I had watched a bit of the drama, so I decided to get in the original source. Turns out this is a pretty fun manga to read, and my first time reading a shoujo/bishounen manga. Even though I'm not into that genre and some of the "shonen-ai" parts made me cringe a little, the delivery was generally set up so that it would not weigh too heavily on the reader and move on. The characters, especially the heroine, were likable if a bit cliched. In the end it's worth a read, maybe even for the more open-minded straight guys.

The best series I've ever read

The best I've ever read. The romance has depth in it, and even though it drags out a bit, at least Sano & Mizuki get to know more about each other before actually dating.

This is a manga I recommend to gender-bender lovers. Or shoujo lovers alone. ^_^ Thanks to Hana-Kimi, my love for gender-benders boosted. <3 I've officially read more than 90% of all the gender benders in the book.

If you're the type to like romances with depth, and a hint of comedy and drama, this is just for you! It'll keep you on the edge of your seat till you finish, just waiting for someone to kiss already. You'll want to continue till the last page!

[btw, Sano is fucking sexy XD]

EDIT :: You know it was basically Hana-Kimi that started the whole gender-bending shoujo? >_> I mean, all the other gender-benders Hana-Kimi-like came AFTER Hana-Kimi. Power!!, Boku ni Natta Watashi, etc etc. I even found one image in Power!! that was EXTREMELY similar to an image in Hana-Kimi

AMIRITE?!?!

Thus, I prefer the series that started it all n.n

And the artwork... omg, the improvement killed me a bit inside x___x; Sano kept getting sexy and sexier....

This was the first gender bender manga I read, and one of the first ones I fell in love with.
I love all of the characters. Mizuki, Sano, Nakatsu, Nanba-senpai, Nakao, and that health teacher that Mizuki always asks advice from. And also, Mizuki is such an awesome lead character. She wasn't particularly tomboyish or physically strong, but she was cute and interesting and amazing. I love the love story between her and Sano. The romance had lots of time to develop (since the series is very long) but I never felt that it was draggy or boring or anything. There were lots of sidestories that focused on the other characters, but it just made the series more amazing. It's like every character had a specific role to fulfill, not just some random character thrown in to give the romance in the series a hurdle to overcome. Come to think of it, the only real hurdle Mizuki and Sano had were themselves. There are lots of homosexuals in the series (well it IS set in an all boys' school) but I loved them all. They were amazing characters and added to the funny moments in the manga.

It's a must read smile

Wonderful Read

I was hesitant about reading such a long series as I'm always worried about it 'dragging on and on' but this one balanced out the slow romance and character development really well! I really recommend this work of NAKAJO's! The art work is just as enjoyable as the characters. The only reason this got a 9.5 instead of a 10 is that the ending felt slightly rushed after all the build-up, but it was still a brilliant ending. I hope others can enjoy it as much as I did!

Honestly, one of my favorites. Some parts might have dragged on too long and some loose ends STILL haven't been tied up yet, but whatever. It's still adorable. And it's gender-bender. C'mon, what more do you want?
