This was the first manga I ever read and finished, about 8 years ago now. I still think about it now and is still one of my top favourites! I sometimes wish I had never read it so I could read it all over again and get all excited, y'know? Its definitely a classic and totally unforgettable smile

That was amazing truly amazing!

The only thing that would have made it better is if I had gotten to see my dear first knight in a dress, with long hair and her true love dancing!

Short and simple, this is a great manga EXCEPT if they did not drag on starting around volume 17ish and making the end crap. The story is pretty nice, although somewhat cliche as you already know what's going to happen in the end. There was some emotional and omgwtfbbq moments but they all exist in the beginning. Then it starts to drag out and goes on and on and it was not all emotional relevant; it just simply lost it charms. Especially the ending :

it was boring as hell and I just could not connect with it on an emotional level and shoujo manga are suppose to be emotional as that's one of it's main selling points. The very ending was abrupt; the time skip at the end only lasted like 3 panels n... it was just...urg, i dont know what to say besides it was horrible as hell.

Good manga, but dont expect much as you read further into the story, I recommend you just read the first like 15-17ish volumes n drop it when it gets boring n read the rest from a summary on wikipedia or something cause it just aint worth it.

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.

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

There are romantic mangas that I used to like as a kid but not as an adult after I realize how cliche and shallow they are. But Hana Kimi is not the case. After so many years, I reread the whole series and fall in love with this manga again! The heroine is funny and cute without being too girlish. She may be naive, but in such a way that makes her so loveable. The drawing is simple, but it is a good style for this school life piece with light but heart touching and beautiful stories about relationships between students, friends, teachers, etc. The manga is quite long for readers who only want to read about the main love-line, but the side stories about side characters are very interesting and add more depth and aspects to the manga.
P/s: it is a BL under cover imo, but I have no complain about that. In fact, I like this series more due to that reason biggrin

This was the first manga i have ever read were a girl was in a all boys school, pretending to be a boy. I really liked it i was hooked from the first vol. It took me a while to get the other volumes read, cus i hadn't yet discovered the beauty of online manga sights. So it took me about 3 months to read it all, when it could of just taken me 2 days. And then it took a while for my library to get it in and i started to read some Yaoi and when i went back to it i kind of forgot that it wasn't a yaoi for a while lol but that's ok. WOW suddenly its my life story. lol anyway the book is good loved it I would recommend it any day. Oh yea P.S they don't have a Anime for it but they do have a Drama on it just to let you know.

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!

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

I quite liked this manga, especially the characters and I think the slow romance and the ending worked really well, but I do kinda wish she went and saw Sensei again. It was abit long and I found it dragged on abit but it's still worth reading!
