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.

I LOVE Naka and Umi! And our "nature wave" (Tsutsumi-kun)! This manga is so funny, that I have to laugh a lot by reading that manga! It´s too funny... the temperament of Naka and (male) Umi is unequalled. Haaah... I want more from Umi and Naka! The fashion is in every volume similar, but that´s only the own style of Fukuyama-sensei, I think. And I like her clothes! When I read the 3rd volume for the first time, my heart began to beat, when Umi said to Tsuda-san, that he loves Naka... I never thought, that he realise his love for Naka so quick. I thought, he needs a longer time... this baka (sorry Umi). Naka is a very... unique person... I think... But I LOVE her!!! At the beginning of the story I HATE Tsutsumi, but now, I think, he´s quite ok... And: Ican´t explain, but I like Chihiro Akiyama(volume 3)... I dislike Aza Nagafuji... sorry. I love that manga, simply. You MUST read it, if you didn´t do that! Please! I love Umi. *UMI FOR EVER*

I absolutely adore this series!! It never fails to make to lol =] My favorite character by far has to be Naka, she might be a little dim witted, but she is soo cute and funny. I just can't wait for Naka and Umi to mature into the characters I have a feeling they'll be >.<

Update
It's finally over and I couldn't be any happier. Naka and Umi are too cute. And they grew just the way I imagined. Of course some things never change haha but this was really lovely. This wasn't just about romance and self growth, but I loved the friendship depicted. It's awesome knowing that you have great group of people who'll always have your back =D

Well, I'm a fan of gender bender manga and I sure do like this series, in fact I follow this series since volume 1 till 16 when it's released in my country and that took me years xD no regret though! This manga is funny, especially Naka. I mean LOL her expression xD

I like to see how Umi grows up. How he was actually feels insecure ... smile I also like to see Naka grows into a prettier girl she already is <3

I give it a 8.5 out of 10 because... I don't remember all of the storyline. lol xD but there were some parts that I kind of confused (idk why D: maybe i wasn't focusing enough on reading ? hehe) but after I re-read I might change it to a higher one! ^^

It's recommended to read, especially if you like manga with the characters keeping secret and all (like me~!!)

at first this story was like aww so cute!
but then it started to just drag on......and on........and on....until i dropped it

the story gets kinda lost somewhere in the middle
it doesn't even focus on the main characters after a while
...
-_-

Where do I start....
Okay so this manga is about 16 volumes which seems really long but seriously, if you just be patient and keep reading, i guarantee you won't regret it. Personally, I loved this manga right when I started reading Volume 1. It's hilarious, the characters are so strong and pure and the plot really got to me. You really see the whole concept of "hard work always pays off in the end." There's definitely a lot of character growth in all the characters! I love the relationship between Umi and Naka and how it isn't so rushed nor is it too slow. I love the potential Umi and Naka had in the beginning and how they kept going and stayed strong no matter what anybody said or did all because they had each other. That's probably the biggest thing I loved about this manga.. how they were there for each other no matter what as friends, lovers, workers, classmates. You really see "forever" in their relationship and that's something you rarely find. And lastly, I love how they grew up together and you can really see it as you keep reading. They go from kids to puberty to grown ups.
Highly Recommended, it was absolutely amazing.
Keep reading, you won't regret it.

The Ending:
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Perfect! I LOVE how they show everyone 3 years later.. Umi and Naka at 18 years old and at the top for modelling! Everyone being so successful and happy and loved. It really wrapped up nicely and I couldn't have asked for a better ending, it was perfect.


All in all, 10/10! Perfect Story and Perfect Ending.

This manga has got to be the best friggin' manga I've ever read thus far. It's been months since I first saw it. I'm still waiting for scanlations and even when I read other good stuff, this manga will always remain number 1 for me.

I'm a fan of gender-blender manga. Like gender-blender? Give this a read. It's funny, the art is very nicely drawn - very pretty characters, the romance between the two main characters, Umi and Naka, is extra sweet because usually they are bickering or Umi is harassing (verbal and physical) Naka in some way and that makes it even more surprising and sweet when a little romantic scene comes into play. Basically it's one of those love-hate relationships. (except so far, the 'love' is just developing) I don't think this is like any other manga I've read.

So if you want a fun, sweet, humorous manga to read, I HIGHLY recommend this. Well.. I'll just recommend this for everyone. You'll really like it.
