Description
Kyo Aizawa's father is a basketball devotee but has been forced to quit playing his precious sport because of an injury. Instead of himself working his way up to the NBA, he feels that Kyo, his daughter should fulfill his dream. To give Kyo a good start in her career of basketball he enrolls her in Seishu High School which is known for two things: its extremely cute girls' uniforms and their boys' basketball team. Not only does unhappy Kyo have to pretend to be a boy during the day (the basketball team members all live at the school to boost the team spirit), she has to do it day and night. The super-star of the team, Chiharu Eniwa, may be a good-looking, basketball champion, but his attitude towards Kyo is hostile from their very first meeting. Poor Kyo ends up roommates with the evil Chiharu. As they get to know one another, both sense that the other has a secret.

i read this four years ago and i still think it is the only manga that could really make me laugh. it is so freakin' FUNNY. At school during silent reading time..when i read a funny part i tried to hold it in, and then when i turned the next page, i tried to keep quiet.. yet, as i read on i really really wanted to laugh my lungs out, scream, slap the table etc. but no..instead i sit there looking constipated. So if you read this at school don't read it during silent reading! otherwise you'll just have to put the book down smile

Power!! is very very funny. Seriously guys, please don't compare this with HanaKimi. They are very different!! Power!! is a comedy. Period. It doesn't try to be a mushy and dragging love story that it's not. Kyo is not your usual shoujo manga heroine. Heck, she doesn't even act like a girl!! Her antics never fail to make me laugh. I actually feel sorry for Chiharu for having her as a girlfriend. ^_^ Except for the serious part when that yuuya guy came in, I completely enjoyed reading this.

I finished reading the manga but not satisfied with the ending and the plotting of the story. And the artwork was not that good, looks like they rushed doing it.

ermm isn't sad that ppl cant see a manga 4 a manga any more and they HAVE to COMPARE it to something ... im sure the mangaka wasn't like "hey we'll make it like hana kimi" that's like saying every gender bender that has to do with school is a hana kimi rip off grr just take it as it is POWER!!

so any way now that's over i really like this manga the art took some getting used to but over all it was FUN

i don't think it's fair to compare ggg and hk just because they have similarities in plot. i like both of them for different reasons, but this review is about ggg, not hk ;) i thought it was great, and one of my favorites.

While the parallels are obvious, I think it's worth stating that while Hana Kimi goes for drama/character development, Power!! is far more focused on comedy, which works brilliantly.

Except for that one weird story arc/subplot with the crazy guy, but I just pretend that never happened. The other characters seem to have.

For anybody looking for a comedy, this manga is an excellent choice. The humor is witty and intense. It's one of the few things that could really make me really laugh. The comedy isn't the only thing this manga has going for it though, the characters are all vibrant and full of personality - the characterization is top notch. The characters are always falling into different amusing situations and you could never get bored. The romance is also very sweet. It's heartwarming and realistic when it needs to be.

It's disappointing to see Hana Kimi fans looking in to this and thinking that because that it's different, it can't be good though. But seriously, Shizuru Seino is a genius. Even if you are having doubts, you should still give it a go and maybe you'd change your mind and be glad that you did.
