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?!?!?!?

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

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~

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.

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

Well it's not my cup of tea, I gave it a shot but it is out of my so called "comfort zone". I only managed to read two chapters, I couldn't continue on. The gender swap was kind of disturbing and irritating, in my opinion but the manga plot was a different approach. The guy's personality was a little too much to handle lol. It is worth the try because it's different from your average shoujo mangas.

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!

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...
