One day, on a whim, 20-year-old Minato dresses up in her friend's cute high-school uniform and goes out briefly into the city. To her horror, she ends up running into her stepbrother, Tooru, who is actually only months younger than her. Since he's cute, and a notorious player, Minato has had to deal with constant jealousy and suspicion from other girls all through their school days. Amazingly, she manages to convince Tooru that she's actually someone who just happens to look a lot like his sister. He is so convinced that he starts trying to date her and, for various reasons, she goes along with it. What started as a simple joke is now evolving into the biggest lie Minato has ever told.

Note: Nominated for the 39th Annual Kodansha Manga Awards in 2015.

I loved this and I found myself falling for the art.

I'm not so into step-sibling romances but this is just so well done with very likable characters! I find the female lead very lovable and the two guys are just so...I love them both so much.

Funny, this manga was able to, as another reviewer said, hook me in. I'm not into step-sibling romance, not into plots being driven by the problem of fessing up to a deception, not into love triangles, but this manga is just so refreshing to read. Very well done.

I just feel bad for Karasuma since I'm guessing he's gonna get his heart broken eventually. But I'm only predicting this so we never know if the mangaka will be pulling anything's just...Karamusuma-kun is so kindhearted and pleasant and refreshing and Tooru is also lovable, cool, and sexy.

They're both very sweet

Very funny, and not cliched. I like it a lot, DESPITE that I typically very much dislike the older female younger male category. It's definitely a fresh read from other typical step sibling romance mangas.

I'd say the drawings are pretty average, but it's not to the point that it's bad.

But the story has really good plot, it keeps you reading it and wondering if

at first i thought it was just going to be another manga full of cliches but after reading the first chapter, i realized that this one is very refreshing. the way the situation of "step-siblings and lovers" here is different from others. it definitely made my day when i discovered this. the artwork is cute and fits the story. definitely made me laugh even though the main character, Minato, is being stressed out because of her uncommon predicament. i give this manga a 10/10 (for now) because the balance of the story is perfect. it's not too comedic that it's stupid, neither is it too serious that it's annoying. smile i hope more people will start to read this. smile

Normally I don't squeal as much as I did when reading this manga. I couldn't help it though I just...thought the guy was the sweetest thing ever. Too bad guys like that don't exist in RL. lol smile Good manga!

I initially get to read this manga accidentally. fortunately, i chose to give it a go. The plot was the usual, but its got a good twist. Tooru is a wonderful character who seemed like a jerk but is really soft inside, you'll want to keep him forever. Read it. I've only read up to volume 2 so far, fortunately for me I can understand japanese. Volume 3 is not out yet... so sad...

I agree with the previous reviewer - don't get fooled by the cover. It may look like a typical, ugly art shoujo... but OH GOD IT ISN'T. The art inside is so stylish and CUUUTE. The expressions are hilarious, and the story is the sweetest thing ever so far. I want to know what happens next so bad.

This is not a typical shoujo manga about step-brother and step-sister. Most of the time you have the step-brother who is an absolute jerk and the main character girl, for all of one chapter, dislikes him. And then falls head over heels for him while he treats her bad. NOT IN THIS ONE. The main character girl is so cute and funny, and I love how it's opposite - the brother is crazy about her, and she finds him a bit annoying. It's hard to describe. All I can say is, READ IT. YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT.

The inside looks much nicer! The art is also clean, cute^^ and pretty to look at.

Soo, romance between two step-siblings is nothing new in the manga world but the way the author executes her plot, the quirky characters and the twist she included make this a sweet, worthwhile read nonetheless^^
