Description
From Tokyopop:

A rude girl and an effeminate boy switch bodies and find that it might be a better fit for both of them in this crazy comedy:

Nanako Momoi is the belle of high school... as long as she stays quiet. Once she shows her true self, guys' dreams are shattered for she is a true tomboy. Akira Uehara has the looks and brains, but, unfortunately, his personality is so dull it overcasts a shadow, and nobody notices him.

One day, Nanako's grandfather comes up with a crazy invention, and Nanako and Akira trade bodies! She's in his body, and he's in hers!

I know that this manga has varied reviews, and it feels like the majority of the reviews are people hating on it. But, do keep in mind that there are also reviews praising this manga like there is no tomorrow. Seriously.

I for one, love this manga, but I think that readers would only be able to form their opinion AFTER reading the manga without looking at the reviews. Otherwise, they might believe it to be amazing, if it really isn't, or hate it, even if it's pretty good.

I agree with Pretzel-Heart in that there is a moral to this manga, but it's something rather misunderstood.

So, don't read this with a logical thinking. Just read this with an open mind, accept the weirdest things, and who knows, maybe you'll fall in love with it. Don't let other peoples' opinions affect what you think.

Also, if you don't like boyxboy or girlxgirl, you might want to leave. It is technically shounen/shoujo ai, but since there is genderbending, they're actually in a heterosexual relationship.

Read This One For the Comedy, Not the Romance

If you want a humorous, romantic shoujo manga, go read "Kare Kano" again. This manga is not meant to be taken seriously. This manga is one of funniest I have ever read. It does not matter who ends up with whom. The idea that one person can be a socially unacceptable girl but a socially acceptable boy and vice versa is extremely clever, and it pokes fun at traditional gender roles.

It will be Senbongi x Akira (in Momoi's body) and Shiina x Momoi (in Akira's body).

Just to make it clear, I DON'T MIND at all if it's shoujo/shounen-ai turn-outs. What really irritates me is that there's no definition in this manga! Except that Senbongi is crazy about Akira in Momoi's body and Shiina is extremely faithful in Momoi (in Akira's body), and Momoi (in Akira's body) really has it for Shiina, Akira's feeling NOT clearly heads anywhere! It can be Senbongi, Shiina and Momoi (in Akira's body) at any time! It's just annoying. If there is any definition in Akira, I probably has given this manga a 10 for its bizarre and laugh-out-loud moments.Too bad, it's heading nowhere = =""""

Wait wait! I TAKE BACK WHAT I SAID ABOVE! This manga was to my heart's content as far as it concerns the ending. Morinaga wrapped it up perfectly even though it's an open-ending kind of thing, and the guy-guy, girl-girl relationships might be offish for some people. But it's perfect for me as long as all the main characters know who they truly like! Yup! I'm giving it a 10! XD

Reason why I didn't like too much was because of the female lead, the one who had switch bodies with the male lead. To be honest she is a real bitch. There is nothing else that I can really describe her. I guess you can describe her as that one person who is basically mean all the time, doesn't really think of others, and overall just plain selfish. This manga never ceased to make me angry. Just remembering what happens in the manga makes me want to punch a hole in the wall. The characters in this manga are just so bad. Unless you are the kind of person that really like one-sided characters to the max, you won't be able to find yourself enjoying this manga at all. What I expected was a love story between a girl and a guy where they switch bodies by accident and gradually develop feeling for each other, but what i got instead was a bitchy female lead that does whatever she wants and a male lead that is so submissive that you can pretty much do anything to him and he will be okay with it. This manga will just make you a ticking time-bomb of anger where in some point in the manga will just makes you explode.

It's horrible. Seriously, the main leads are both terrible, nothing really happens; the way they change bodies and fall in love with their old friends make no sense AT ALL. All this manga does is make me cringe and wonder how anyone can enjoy this.

I'm usually not into comedy (I guess because I have a weird sense of humor) but this one tickles me in the right spots. And I ADORE gender-bender.

It's comedy: Don't take it too seriously. Just laugh at the absurdity. And let your mind get twisted over who's a girl and who's a boy and who's what or whatever, and their crazy, tactless, tasteless antics.

And to the reviewers who want this to be a hardcore shoujo: there's enough out there already. Stuff like this is rare as gold, so let it be what it is.

i just read some of the reviews here and lol'd. obv people are not familiar with morinaga ai. her comedy style is similar to seino shizuru or other mangas where the main draw for audiences are the gags and satire/parody, NOT the plot, NOT the characters. plot and characters are basic at best, but the comedy is top notch if you love the slapstick, absurd and random. don't expect the plot to go anywhere amazing. or the characters to be likable or relatable. do expect crazy hijinks and the most absurd situations you can ever imagine in manga.

i really don't care how this manga ends--however i do think the romance angle in this is rather annoying and detracts from the gags and jokes at times. i ship akira x shiina anyways ;x i doubt it'll happen, though. whatever. it would be EPIC if akira fell for senbongi and then his body switched back. LMAO. i would gladly accept that ending.

I laughed my head off with this. Plus the artwork is divine. And although Momoi can be irritating i actually do like her (him), lol. Everyone is crazy in this manga, and i love the shoujo-ai, shounen-ai and gender bender presented XD

I randomly picked this series up in the bookstore due to the slightly odd twist on the typical gender-bender and the fact that I (admittedly) like feminine boys (and Momoi's character design looked pretty, too).

This was the first of Ai Morinaga's works that I have read, and after reading it, she has become my favorite mangaka for comedy and parody.

Yup, that's right.
PARODY.

While I know that everyone's mileage may vary, I would just like to point out some things about this series so that those of you looking it up on here and seeing all of the negative and somewhat misinformed ratings won't just throw away the chance to read a unique and funny manga.

Yes, it is a Shoujo. And yes, it is a gender-bender. But what I find so great about (whatever you want to call it seeing as there are three different legitimate names) My Barbaric Girlfriend is its satire.

There have been many interpretations, most of them revolving around how terrible and sadistic Momoi is (something I can't totally argue with), but after reading the entire series (I was lucky enough to find complete scans and translations), I'm pretty sure that Morinaga was trying to make some sort of statement.

In the manga the characters are so far-fetched (other than Shiina, perhaps) because they are meant to mock society. It even brings out what I found to be disagreeable things from the viewers. Even though Akira is separated from his family, his friends, and his old lifestyle and is completely abused by everyone around him (minus Shiina), people still say that he should just shut up and be happy with his life because "he's better as a girl." Well I would always ask myself what that even meant. Why does someone have to "act" either like a "girl" or a "boy?" It's kind of silly to put people in boxes like that...and I felt sad for the main characters (Momoi and Senbogi) for thinking like they couldn't be with the person they loved without having it be societally correct (as in a heterosexual relationship). People often complain about Akira's softness and Momoi's cruelty, but that's basically our faults for mandating them to be that way. Girls have to be cute and men uber-manly. I think the over-the-top-ness of the whole thing is pointing out that it DOESN'T have to be like that; there are an infinite number of ways to be happy.

But this is just my interpretation of the manga. Others can see it any way they like. But please read it with a grain of salt. Morinaga's works aren't meant to be typical in any way. They are parodies and meant to be whacky, crazy, and just what you DON'T expect. That's what's fun about this series. And for those who complain that it's too repetetive and that the characters don't develop at all...I just can't agree. Sure, it's episodic, but many successful manga and anime are (let's face it). And it's not boring repetition. The characters ARE well developed and there are even special chapters that delve into their inner psyches and pasts. Momoi and Akira DEFINITELY change over the course of the series (which is weird, given that they switched into roles that "suited them better" anyways), and there are a lot of scenes which show other characters' hidden insight and depth (despite the fact that people call Shiina stupid, she definitely has great moments of intelligence and knows those around her very well. Same with Senbogi).

And after (FINALLY) getting to see the end, I can honestly say that it's worth the read. Not if you're looking for some lovey-dovey romance, however (minus the ones that develop later on...but this is arguable). And for those that complain that there's to much homo-eroticism, I'd just like to point out that, while not exactly "girly," it IS a Shoujo. And there's not really any sexual action (other than for comedy), so it doesn't really distract from the story...or at least I don't think it should...for those that get uncomfortable from such things.

Ultimately I think Your and My Secret is about love (no duh). I guess the fact that sometimes we need to change our perspective before we can see the truth, and allow the ones destined for us a chance...

Please don't be discouraged and read it! wink

Postie: And...I'm sorry...but nowhere does it say that in a Shoujo the two main characters have to end up with each other. Shoujo simply means, a manga with girls as a target audience. ARE WE SERIOUSLY GOING TO ENCOURAGE PEOPLE TO BE LESS CREATIVE!? IN THIS DAY AND AGE!? We need all the creativity we can get! If everything was just in formulas, then THERE WOULD BE NO POINT TO WRITING ANYTHING! WE'D ALREADY KNOW WHAT WAS GOING TO HAPPEN!!! <--- Sorry, major pet peeve, and no, I couldn't let it slide. ><
