It's pretty funny. But that guy looks like a girl and that girl looks like a guy.....

There's more comedy than romance.

This series is very interesting!!! I really like it!! But man, Tokyopop has commitment issues. It hasn't released the next volumes in a year and a half, maybe even longer. It seems they have dropped this series just like they did to sooo many others. For example, Rure too, hasn't had it's newest volume in forever. I am very dissapointed in tokyopop. These mangas are just too good!!!

It's okay. Average. If I haven't read Blaue Rosen before this, I would have thought this manga was fantastic.
But since I've read that before this, I felt it was nothing special.

But, don't make my review turn you off from this interesting read. The girl really does look like a guy. In a scene where she comes out of the shower, I was pretty shocked to see her with boobs. It was like as if reality came shaking down on my head. My reaction was pretty bad if I do say it myself. "OMG SHE REALLY IS A GIRL!1!1!1!!"

The story is similiar to Blaue Rosen. Check it out.

I have to say that I picked this up thinking it would be something to read in between my main stories. I have to say I was surprised. It threw me off seeing Kiri as a guy because she actually looked hot. I think that the guys are also hot in this story. It is nice to see Kiri cry and act like a girl because she is one. Her mom is evil, but very funny. I would give this a chance and the story does become better as it goes on.

Yeah the main character cries a lot but to me, it seems very comical. Not the annoying, whining like a 11-year-old premature kid. This series is one of the very funniest I've read. Art is good. I love Kiri's mom, she makes me laugh the most. Kiri does look masculine and at first it was a bit of a turn-off for me but then I started seeing worst, in other gender-blender manga. I prefer a masculine, mature-looking, handsome girl than a cute, small, boyish looking girl. That's just my preference though. This series is too funny to pass out on. Give it a read.

Plotwise, this manga is typical. Character wise, it's nothing special. However, of all the gender bender manga I've read, Kiri's the only one I ever saw as really manly...

Traditional shoujo, and fairly predictable but heartwarming in a silly kind of way. Plus crossdressing is always fun. Always. Read it, smile, wish you had more drive to do things, and burn it somewhere safe for a rainy day when you need to smile again. Its worth the space.

I really thought this one would have a much better reader hook. After reading the first volume I gave up since the previews pretty much gave away most of the story line anyways. So I only read that short 1 paragraph preview of next volume then skimmed through the next volume. Nothing that really catched my eye. The art is mediocre as well. Even up to volume 5 where Mutou improves a little bit on art, Kiri still looked like a boy even though she was wearing a one-piece dress =/

Mazzax is right. One word for this manga: Unappealing. Their love story spans chapters without any substantial romance development. After a few chapters you cant help but hate HER for being a spineless pathetic fool in love and HIM for being excessively passive and unable to communicate.
