From Storm in Heaven:

Welcome to Momoko's waking nightmare. Things were settled, they were! She was SUPPOSED to have gone to a normal school, made normal friends, and led a blissfully normal life. But the universe is just cruelly, irredeemably, monstrously unfair, so instead she found herself thrown out of home, stuck in an all-boys boarding school with a roommate she hates, cursed with a hideous haircut and wearing clothes which, to be frank, she wouldn't be seen dead in. And the only thing worse than her current situation is the one that she'll be in if anyone ever realizes that she is, in fact, a girl. Everything is wrong! Particularly the fact that, even though she's surrounded by amazingly gorgeous guys, her chances of romance are less than zero. But with life this complicated, something's bound to give - and so it does.

Such a cuuute manga... but seriously... no one falls in love that quickly!!
He finds out about her in the 1st chapter & declares his love for her in front of everyone in the 3rd chapter. Nevertheless, still a great read!
It's highly predictable & really chichèd and all, but MAN, can the artist draw!
It seriously is THE most CHEEZIEST maga I've ever read, but you'll still keep reading it cuz it's soo cute XD

This manga strongly reminded me of Hana Kimi but I can't help to compare the two and Hana Kimi, in my opinion, is much better. Though I think that the guy's demonic aura is quite funny, especially when he's in protect-the-girl mode =]

This series is really fast moving. Way to fast moving for my taste. It's like "Oh baby, I love you even though I've only known you for two days!". Eh, I like fast pace; but not THAT fast. Not my kind of romance. Not to mention it gets kind of corny at times. The characters aren't really lovable either. ]: I just had to stop reading at chapter 4.

There's no reason not to try this, if you like shoujo romances, this is a good one. The story might be a little predictable but then most shoujo manga are. Momoko's romance with Itou is complete and he makes the perfect boyfriend, so you won't be disappointed. Plus the art is nice too.

I love this manga- I must have reread it about 30 times. The plot is good and steady, it never gets boring and never gets repetitive. The comedy is great, I always found myself laughing out loud and the romance was adorable- with just enough sexual tension to get me squealing. XDDDDD I loved the characters, even the supporting ones and thought each one was developed nicely. The only thing that would have made it better is if it were longer!!! X3 I <3 Shimaki Ako

Stereotypically Shoujo

If you can accept this one for what it is, it is an enjoyable read. Yes, it is overloaded with just about every shoujo cliche that you can think of and maybe even a few that you forgot. Yes, it is also true that Shimaki's art can be very inconsistent. Sometimes everything looks proportioned well, and sometimes everyone looks like they suffer from Giraffe Neck Syndrome. However despite all this, I didn't find it enjoyable. When you get down to it, Boku ni Natta Watashi is the sort of complete fluff where you know that everything is going to work out.

well. this manga just kind of pissed me off. It's like someone was making a "shoujo cliche stew" or something...

"Hmm, let's see, let combine a really stupid girl who can't live without a boy... with a "hot" guy who's pretty much god-like, then we'll throw in a gay guy just to attempt to be slightly unique instead of the bitchy fan club... oh wait, let's just have both... " etc etc.

If you just like Gender bender, I recommend Ouran, not this. Even Hana Kimi was better.
