such a refreshing manga to read the art is well drawn but the live action is much captivating. main guy heroine is good-looking and well, the girl is pretty cute she look a little bit of Toda Erika which i kind of like for some reason. though its a slow scanlate progress its a good thing there's live action.. though i prefer the jdrama i had a go reading the manga... xx

The story started out really nice but lately, the chapters have been a little random and no real story is going on. I am up to volume 4 by the way. I know it's slice of life but it's not something that I look forward to reading and finding out what will happen next. The art is a 10; absolutely perfect. I just wish the story would match. Oh well.

OMG. I can't believed it.
Is this manga for specially me? DX
It just soooooo cute. I just love this Asuka-chan. I can't help it imagining him to be my future lover because, i don't know cooking or girly stuff but know karate xD

Omg, very much worthy this shoujo manga for all shojo lover girl! ^_^
you eventually develop love to this manga character because : -
1. there's Asuka ~ chan! xD
2. very cute drawing and character >.<
3. Not any other shoujo manga, the main cast lead is a guy who is like a girl~
4. ... because it's tooo cute~

i simply loved this manga!! Asuka is so freakin' adorable!! I really want to pinch his cheeks biggrin I loved the fact that it was a girly shoujo manga and the lead was a male. Kanno Aya-sensei pulled it off pretty to me. Great manga!! i need to buy vol. 6 and 7 desprately!

How many times must he confess before she gets it? Well I guess I don't mind, love watching the mangaka friend with Ryou-kun and Asuka-chan hahaha. I'm definitely going out and buying the licensed version!

What I love: how the mangaka throws away the cliches by making the protagonist a guy, make that a girly guy who ends up loving a tomboy-ish girl. He looks manly and does many manly acts but he blushes, cooks, and sews stuff in an extremely cute way. And that's... cute, but weird. I keep expecting him to take off his wig and announce that he's a girl.

What I don't like: the slight shounen-ai touches in this. This Asuka person has so many potential lovers!!! And 90% of them are guys. That's right: he's a guy magnet just as much as he's a chick magnet. it's weird. But also hilarious.

It's so funny how the guy tries to be "manly" despite of his love for cute stuff. It's kinda similar to Boku to Kanojo no XXX but this is so much fun in my opinion. It's light, kinda romantic at times, cool, cute... it's just like rainbow. I read another manga about brothers living together by the same mangaka and it discouraged me from reading otomen at first but I got hook when I read the first chapter. So, give it a try

reading this reminds me of my dad....I love the main character how he acts manly infront of others while having such a girly heart, at some points I thought this was going to take a yaoi turn, but that only made it more fun to read!

I never really like shoujo but this one really grabbed me!!!!!!!!!!

It's soooooooo hilarious I can't stop laughing reading it. But it also has some meaning to say, people has the right to be whoever they wanted to be ^^

And the story is not cliche like other shoujos too, it's so unpredictable, even the first chapter surprise me!

A MUST READ!!!! ^^
