I really loved it. It was my first gender bender manga and I liked it so that after reading this I went to see some other mangas of this genre. Well about this manga I think it could have ended in 100 chapters I guess and the main roles were just perfect.

Pretty solid all the way through, and while I find the beginning kind of.. iffy in the "stalkers are bad" kind of way, once the plot starts it keeps on course. While I don't like how the story started and the reasons, I enjoy what follows in that it stays true to what it started. I can't say that for most manga I have read recently.

Pretty good story, art is good throughout, and while the sports drama is unncessary, the family stories make up for it pretty well. Good read, recommended.

i actually enjoyed everything about the manga except the ending. after everything that happened, i just thought it would have a better ending. it's still a happy one though. also, the story moves slow so be prepared for that. i was hooked for that very reason.

I had watched a bit of the drama, so I decided to get in the original source. Turns out this is a pretty fun manga to read, and my first time reading a shoujo/bishounen manga. Even though I'm not into that genre and some of the "shonen-ai" parts made me cringe a little, the delivery was generally set up so that it would not weigh too heavily on the reader and move on. The characters, especially the heroine, were likable if a bit cliched. In the end it's worth a read, maybe even for the more open-minded straight guys.

Okay, so I know that this is an overdone cliche, and I know that the ending drags out a little too long. But at present and ever since I laid hands on this particular manga, I have fallen in love with it. This is the THE manga that got me started into the whole shoujo, cross-dressing, reverse harem, all of the above romances and whatnot.

As many would comment, the artwork is beautiful. It was a little longer than it needed to be, but I couldn't help feeling a bit sad when the ending came around because I loved this series so much. It was funny in the right places and romantic and cute in other places. And it's full of bishie goodness.

The characters were awesome, most of them unique, and Umeda Hokuto-sensei oozed of delectable, sexy bishie-ness (despite, and in spite of, his orientation).

Beautiful Bishounen but Story Drags

Pro: Bishounen. There is a ton of eyecandy here. Pretty much the only reason to read any of this.
Con: Some of the side stories were more interesting than the main plot. Like many of the other reviewers, the story drags. I think this would worked better as a 10 volume series rather than 23. After a while, it's sort of ridiculous that Mizuki isn't discovered. She is pretty much an idiot.

it's main character is typical in some ways but Sano is worth it. and the lead is not *not* cute... i enjoyed the characterizations for the most part and that doctor was HOT. one of my first and a big reason why i still read shoujo. good stuff.

Hana Kimi is a great manga. I had fun reading it! Not to mention I love Sano.
Although like others have said it can be boring at times, it DOES drag on for some time, there are alot of pointless chapters. Its a very cliche shoujo manga. But then again its long I like mangas that are long and not all these short fast paced mangas that leave some cliff hangers like in the shorter mangas there's usually a time when you finish a manga and think to your self *what happened to that guy?" in this manga its not really like that (well it wasn't for me anyway lol) the ending is... satisfying... doesn't leave you wondering.

one of the best gender benders out there!
the characters are awesome. it's a bit long but each chapter contributes to the story. the comedy is also pretty good.
these are one of the few that i wouldn't mind rereading
