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.

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.

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?

Ahhh, this manga was amazingg(: I absolutely loved, even though it was pretty long, the plot and artwork were fantastic. It would be better if they work on the ending a little bit more, like how Sano is going to propose and so on. I feel bad for Nakatsu but I hope he'll find someone later in the future. His roommate is hilarious (the spirit dude), then again, everyone was funny and special in their own way. This will definitely stay on my top favorite shoujo manga list! <3

Okay, so I know that this is an overdone cliche, and I know that the ending drags out a little too long. But at present and ever since I laid hands on this particular manga, I have fallen in love with it. This is the THE manga that got me started into the whole shoujo, cross-dressing, reverse harem, all of the above romances and whatnot.

As many would comment, the artwork is beautiful. It was a little longer than it needed to be, but I couldn't help feeling a bit sad when the ending came around because I loved this series so much. It was funny in the right places and romantic and cute in other places. And it's full of bishie goodness.

The characters were awesome, most of them unique, and Umeda Hokuto-sensei oozed of delectable, sexy bishie-ness (despite, and in spite of, his orientation).
