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.

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

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.

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

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.

Well, at least this is one of Shinjo-sensei's works that's actually SUPPOSED to be funny.

It's nothing particularly special, but I was actually able to tolerate it quite well. This is a step up from the usual attitude that I take towards her works (i.e. completely loathing them, usually).

a halfway decent shinjo mayu story! XD i liked it; it was very original, and the different side of the characters were amusing. even though everyone loved akira, though, his "cutesy-cutesy" side annoyed me sometimes. if you don't want to be mistaken for a girl, don't act like one!! (oh well, it made it interesting i guess). i much preferred the dark side of akira, though. (:

i wish mizuki had a different hairstyle.. on a random note.. that annoyed me too for some reason. ><

overall though, pretty good. kinda lacking a moving plot, but it was a good read anyways. may read sequel when more is available.

Spoiler (highlight to view)
speaking of annoying akira (lol, i know, i was speaking of it way back in the first paragraph..) i hated how he wanted mizuki to be forceful and stuff, but at the end when she got all dark, he was all like "noooo stop -shiver- why are you doing this?" ughhhhh akira, make up your mind little guy.

OMG, this was my first gender bender series and I official love it. All summer I was looking for some good romance stories to read and this and 3 others were just the best. The main characters are very cute and enjoyable to read (especially Akira). I totally reccomend this story to read if you are really into the gender bender themes ^_^. And read the sequel too. It is good bigrazz

I have to say that this was a fun read. I love the twists that are involved in this gender bender romance. Plus, it's a big A in my book to see the characters personalities in their fullest bloom.

Oh man. I first thought that this was yaoi. Then I realized that the boyish looking person was a girl, whilete girlish looking person was a guy. That was an eye opener. Props for having a kiss scene in the music room. I always find that a necesity in mangas in which music is a big theme. The fact that the girlish looking guy somehow looks so dashing and manly when he's alone with mizuki just makes the manga great. Mizuki herself is so... COOL LOOKING (theres just no word to describe how she looks like) Character designs are just fabulous. The clothes ate fabulous as well.

OVERALL. this manga gave me a tingly blushy feeling. Although the height difference is a bit shaky (akira looks taller than mizuki in some important scenes) but no biggie. I recommend this to anyone who wants a quick read.
