Matsuri is a girl like all the other high school girls. She likes boys, especially one called Wataru, but he hardly notices her even though she watches him like a crazy gal. "Tough girls aren't my type," he once said, and now even three street guys call her a tough chick?! Nothing too good to say to the wrestling Princess. Being this kind of princess is nothing to be proud of for Matsuri so it's a secret that she keeps from her school mates, because it's her father who wants to make her a wrestler...but what will happen when she's discovered fighting those three guys by Arata, the bad boy who can even "fight cows"? Discover it and keep track of Matsuri Special!

It's not a long manga. It's okay. It convinces me of the plot and the character development. There aren't too much drama. Somehow it's not that memorable but I guess it is the way it is.

I'm very contented reading it.

The plot is like any other manga. There was some good comedy and that was it. I hated that the girl protagonist was a idiot. She didn't know that the male protagonist likes her and was quite dense. Though there isn't anything special with this manga it was good in a way.

Is it just me or does Matsuri, the pretty-boy, and the spiky hair guy look UNCANNILY like Makino, Rui, and Domyoji? Not just resemblance, but EXACTLY? Besides Domyoji's hair of course. But other than that... I can't see any difference.

Not that this is a bad thing. It's actually a plus for me, since I love Hana Yori Dango ^^

I only started reading, but it looks very promising! I love all of Kamio Youko's works!

I liked the main two characters; but the extra characters (other romance interests) did make me roll my eyes. They are humorous, and there's drama. I did like the overall story and the father.

I even had to go back and check if that was the end. I was suspecting more.

its sort of a no-brainer in who gets the Yoshihara Yuki- all dark haired dudes get the girl- except for one or two preliminary mangas of these mangakas...what I like is that the nice dude gets the girl- domyouji was no saint-maybe a rough kinda good guy but with lots of trouble- he did good. this arata was actually nice through and through and making a really good guy getting the girl is a nice change for a kamio youko manga

I find the characters very interesting! I like the heart wrenching feeling this story gives (especially through Wataru's actions) 0,o It may be because I haven't read much shoujo sports manga but this was unique. Amazing story, can't wait to read more!

This looks like it should be a shounen sports manga, but it's really just a shoujo manga with wrestling.

This series is so-so. In the first 2-3 chapters we have the love triangle set up with the handsome womanizing jerk, the simple-minded honest guy, and the plain and clueless girl. The girl has a secret identity: she's the wrestling ring's "Honey Princess." The guy she likes (yes, the womanizing jerk) doesn't like muscled girls, so she hides her identity from him. And then the simple-minded honest guy finds out her secret identity, and it turns out he loves pro-wrestling and he's her fan!

Very very minor spoiler:

It's refreshing that the love rival isn't really a love rival, she doesn't do anything underhanded... well, not for the reasons you expect.

As the title says, I don't really like this manga. Its about a girl, forced to be a wrestler to help her father. She doesn't like it, doesn't want to do it, and yet the father basically forces her to do it anyway. 2 love interests, 1 is a complete jerk, thats the one she falls for of course, the others a nice guy, who likes her, so of course she can't return his feelings.

I don't know, I just find the story and the characters irritating. Doubt I'm going to bother with this one again.
