Despite what the person below me says, this series is absolutely wonderful. It's hilarious, silly and incredibly sweet. The love between Naka and Umi is so cute. Even though he's a bit temperamental, what he feels for Naka makes me sigh with longing... ahhhh..... *sighs* lol at times their love is very tender, because
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
as Umi grows as a man, his feelings start to grow. I love the chapter where it begins with Naka describing how Umi seems almost frail and slender and yet when she really looks at his body, she sees how he's growing into a man, and Umi also feels that way about her.
It's just so freaking cute!!! ARGH so... so cute!

if a good thing happens is because of umi if a bad thing happens its because of naka
the story line is horrible so childish the author tries to make umi seem impressive but is making no sense in doing that and the charactor is too clich and seems too forceful i cant believe people actually likes this manga and find it funny i dont even get how it got published

Wow, how should I say this...
This manga is just really good you know!! Definitely a MUST TRY!!
Although I have to say that the plotting and the drawing at the beginning wasn't really neat. I mean, there were some characters that were left out after a few first chapters, but if you just continue to read, it gets better, like really really better!
I spent my whole school night a year ago when I came across this series, and I didn't sleep a wink that night! I suddenly realized when it was already 5h30 in the morning and forcefully had to turn off the computer to get to school, haha XD
It's been a year already, and I'm still keeping in track all the new chapters released, though I hope they would be released more often XD
I intended to rate a 9/10, but the lastest chapters just made up for the faults and I'm gonna go for a whole 10!
PS: Love Ryoko Fukuyama sensei!! biggrin

I love this series! It's really fun to read, and the art is well drawn too >< I think this the the best "gender bender" that's been drawn. This author knows how to draw the same person as both a guy and a girl, which is better than any other mangaka has done. The hair length and the figure never changes, and you can always see the Umi girl as the Umi guy or vice versa.
Plus, I think the plot is very unique, with very original characters. Naka is so pretty, yet her facial expressions can always make you laugh out loud. I love her habits of whenever she's stressed she's up against the wall, and her family too XD

Anyways, highly recommend this manga because it's so sweet yet funny and orginal!

P.S I just looove how much they love each other! It's sooo cute ><

One of the cutest manga that I actually like. It is just adorable and the dynamic between all the characters is just sweet.
Really the comedy is different from Skip Beat, but this one just makes you think 'awww such a stupid couple' the whole way through.

Nothing groundbreaking, really, but nothing I can complain about, either. A pretty solid shoujo genderbender.

I do love Naka's faces, though. XD

I found this manga by chance. I was in between Hana Kimi and Tenshi Ja Nai! I had to find a "filler" and I have been reading ever since. This title is one of my top 10 favs. I cannot wait for volume 7 to come out and hopefully the other volumes.
I love the story line between Umi and Naka! I know this is another "cross dressing" story, but story is cute and funny. The story gets stronger with each is well worth the read.
