One of the most annoying mangas I've read to date. Packed with psychologically disturbed teens and their melodrama, this one's just not worth the 18 volumes of effort. (Mind you I read it in its entirety, and boy do I regret doing so) Lots of back and forth without cause and a severe lack of direction made me want to shoot myself, repeatedly. What did/would it make you want to do?

Amazingly real.... Not just a typical drama.

I personally feel this manga is actually pretty real. It shows how life back in high school is like for some people. It's not how all girls are. But I have to say, Momo albeit being a tad bit indecisive and sometimes frustrating character to comprehend, depicts how some girls are, how some girls act, how some girls think. Especially since she's ONLY a high school girl.

This manga explores how some high school kids go through their high school life.
The relationships with others (be it friendship, true love or unrequited love), the sacrifices and decisions that have to be made and how normal confusions and misunderstandings affect these relationships.

All in all, it's a very real shoujo. Yes, there is drama... But heck, that's life. What do you expect? It's about high school kids. I'm sure almost everyone's been dumb and indecisive before.

i actually like this manga... although there are so many things wrong with it...if you look past all the unresolved issues at the end and the dumbness and indecisiveness of everyone in the story it's a decent story with very sweet moments. If you love romantic stories with a lot (and i mean A LOT) of drama..you should probably read this... but if you hate annoying people then you might want to try something else.

this manga is surprisingly REALLY similar to the anime! (cuz usually manga's r a lil diff ryt). but this manga is crazy GOOD! if your into drama, PURE ROMANCE den i HIGHLY RECOMMEND this. i dont know why people r giving such low rates for this.. i guess der not really into slice of life, romance stuff but the tipical shoujo shizz. -.- ppl these days.. seriously. i understand why its called "Change of Heart" and you will too if you read it! ^-^. it's really good. i SERIOUSLY.. HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS. (and im usually very picky with manga. i've only highly recommended about 10 manga's in all my reads (and i've read like TONS). read it!! watch it!! art is pretty good too! (i know the cover dunt look that good, but the art is actually pretty good)

Drama on a Stick

I swear, this manga is pure drama on a stick. It's good, but pure drama.

I'd recommend it for a quick, light read. Nothing too mind boggling, except why they keep being nice to Sae instead of kicking her to the curb.

If you read shoujo, you should give this one a try. Yes, it's cliche. Yes, sometimes you want to smack them. But Peach Girl is well written and is a well known. The reason it's well known is that it's one of the better balanced ones out there.

When I first started reading it, I actually really liked it.
I've only read up to, I think volume 5, but I couldn't force myself past that. The main character seemed really cool in the first book, but already where I'm at now, I hate her for not being decisive enough.
It seemed like a good idea, "love yourself" behind the story, but it doesn't seem to matter later on in the plot. >.O I'll probably come back and try to finish this sooner or later, but I don't have my hopes up for it after reading the other comments.

The manga was just okay to me. As far as the story goes it was a very typical story line of jelousy, hate and lies which is nothing new. Most of the characters were annoying and I didn't feel like I could grasp the situations in which they were put in.

The art was good enough for me to keep reading throughout the 18 volumes.

Peach Girl is a very typical shoujo love triangle plot with no originality. The main character is extremely flaky- instead of rooting for her, I wanted to beat her over the head several times.
The manga creates all of these personality traits for her characters- such as Momo's love of swimming and dislike of her tan skin- yet they all seem to fall to the wayside during the melodrama of everyone's love life. Plus, there are plenty of plot holes to make you want to pull your hair out in frustration.

The only reason I am giving this a 3 instead of a 1 is because I read the whole 18 volumes without giving up. Despite being one of the worst shoujo mangas I've ever read, the story was compelling enough to continue.

Overall, I say read it for the fluffyness but DON'T BUY IT!!!
