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...

the story is kind of interesting but.. I'd rather read a BL story. No matter how I look at it, if he was involved with a guy, he'd leave her just like his father did to his mother. He's a girl after all, and I don't believe Ryou-chan can always be strong like a man. Their relationship looks very weak to me, even if it works for a few years, it won't work longer. It can't convince me that he's totally a straight man. *sigh* even if he'd change later, I don't believe his change will last long, because he's always been a girl since he was born.
