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!!!! ^^

I really like the drawing and the the otomen/girly guy looks good same with his friend, the one who writes and draw shoujo mangas. I'm just impatiently waiting for the romance to start between the main girl and guy! The story is different, it doesn't seem to be typical. At first, i thought it would be shounen ai or something but it's not, it's just about a girly guy who's trying to hide his true identity and he has a secret crush on a girl, who is also his friend and it goes on from there but it's really interesting! I can't wait for more!

I love Kanno Aya's artwork. It's beautiful, of course, and the pictures are very consistent and er.. "read nicely".

However, I was expecting more from the story, because "Forever Honey" was so nice and deep. Maybe I'm being biased, because I prefer stories with female leads and would've given this manga a higher rating if the gender roles were switched.. bigrazz But minus that, the story is just really bland. It's lacking something that I can't quite put my finger on.

EH... how should I put it? Hmmm... Well I kinda want to know how will this manga end, But I didn't get attached to it. Things go unsually smooth(even for a shoujo manga), maybe that is why it's not so interesting. Cute, yeah, but nothing more...

Unique in Role Reversal rather than Body Swap

An interesting study into gender roles, which is enhanced due to the social conditions in Japan. Or, you know, a fun role-reversal manga.

It is refreshing to see a mangaka that does not condemn their characters for harbouring hobbies that do not coincide with their gender, but rather promotes the positive message of being yourself, despite gender preconceptions. All too often, males are portrayed as tough fighters, while females are proficient at cooking and sewing in shoujo manga, making this series stand out.

On the manga itself - the art is extremely attractive and the format is easy to read (one does not have to re-read pages to understand). Unique concept. I was pleasantly surprised by the character of Miyakozuka Ryou, who portrays a more realistic version of the modern teenage girl.

like everyone else has said... It's so cute! x3 So far, not much to say about this with only three chapters out, but my rating might change after I read more.

after the first chapter, I was so shocked I could not talk for about 6 minutes. It was just so freaking amazing.

WHY IS IT SO AMAZING?!?!?!?

This is officially the best role-reversal manga EVER! And it does it WITHOUT gender-bending, so more the kudos to the mangaka. Seriously.
