Ai o Utau Yori Ore ni Oborero!  
Login to add items to your list, keep track of your progress, and rate series!
Akira Shiraishi, a young high-school boy with feminine features, joins Blaue Rosen, the all-girl band that Mizuki Sakurazaka, an androgynous girl of the same age, performs lead electric guitar in.

Their high-school life is anything but typical: Mizuki is the "prince" of her all-girl school while Akira is the "princess" of the neighboring all-boy school. A series of comical events brings them closer together, even as the prejudice of the people around them tries to hold them back.

Just finished ch8. My face is totally red I know it!
I enjoyed the story so far and even through I couldn`t see the boy as a boy and the girl as a girl, those pervy phrases from time to time really got me. But still theplot is a little shonen ai type too. Can`t say it`s just shoujo(even with the smut), so it`s getting more and more embarasing... ><

I finished it today and its nice to see a change from Shinjo Mayu's previous works, and I liked how it wasn't so much rape in it. I liked the art as well. When I first read it, I was confused because how the boy looked like a girl and the girl like a boy. My first toughts when I saw the girls, was "ohh bishonens!" but then when they was like "hey we're girls!" I was like "... HUH?" but if I put that aside the story was good and I liked the ending as well. It's good if you like a genderbending shoujo style manga with a lot of humor.

Spoiler (highlight to view)
And... I LOVED the dark Mizuki! I couldn't stop laughing when she got all badass and how girly Akira became. But when I think more of it, it felt like I watched a shonen-ai/yaoi manga because Mizuki looked like a seme and Akira like a uke, which was kind of weird because this is a shoujo, but I liked it otherwise haha.

With the fun-sounding synopsis, I was hoping that this would be a break from Shinjo Mayu's typical raperaperape manga. If it wasn't, I was at least hoping she would sort of parody herself by switching the genders of her formula. Well, this was none of that. There is so much rape in this manga. And yes, you girls are supposed to be turned on by the idea of it. It was just as rapeislove as all the rest of her suckish, suckish "stories", and that incredibly manly girl is indeed the victim. It looks so wrong and it's so not worth reading.

I absolutely love Mayu. XD Her works are great and the smut... Yum! ;D

I really love how the girl is drawn in her boy's style and vice versa. Hehe.

I was having a realy hard time seeing Mizuki as a girl, but it's a bit easier now... is it just me or is Mayu trying to draw her "girlier"?

Same with Akira. Man I love him. ^_^

It's not as smutty as Mayu's other works but damn, it's prettyyyy good. One of my fav Mayu works~

The characters and the story plot is interesting. But it is difficult for me to comprehend that the girly one is a guy and the manly one is a girl. I just can't see her as a female. Grr! So fustrating. I feel as if I am reading a shounen-ai story. But I'm not. No matter what, you can't find the feminine side of the protagonist....But it is still a good read, so try it out.

This manga is pretty confusing at first.. but you get the hang of it after the first two chapters. ^^ I wish I could have seen more of Shun though. Haha. The relationship between Akira and Mizuki is too cute. & somehow, I find it pretty hilarious. ^^ Most of the time I have to keep reminding myself which of them are girls and which are guys. However, it's definitely entertaining to read this manga. ^^ Shinjo Mayu!

i was actually avoiding this one because i felt like it wont work on me since the characters interchange looks base from opposite genders but when i peeked on one chapter, i find myself wanting more because its way too hilarious! its funny and so much interesting, i mean there are some comedy mangas whom you cant laugh out but this one, i really laughed out hard, its so playful and kinda sweet! hahaha now just thinking about the characters really makes me laugh hahaha

SHINJO Mayu usually extremely smutty her manga but this one is fun really fun you'll even read it even though it's quite smutty. I usually avoid smutty manga but this one is an exception. This manga has everything you need boy x boy girl x girl girlie guy x manly girl
