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.

I think the drawings are definitely worth the fast-paced story in the beginning. I really love her style and I also prefer the manga over Hana Kimi. I think Hana Kimi is way childish in comparison. I also can't understand how teh story is similar to Hana Kimi because it really isn't except for teh Girl-inBoy-dormitory part. But, seriously, there are many, many more mangas with that story.
Anyways, I love it!

to me, it's like a cheap imitation of Hana Kimi. kind of like.. whoever wrote this was annoyed that it took Mizuki and Sano so long to get together in Hana Kimi, so they made it happen quickly in Boku ni Natta Watashi. It's definitely too quick though. The characters don't even know each other and they're confessing! jeez. plus there's a *little* smut. it's just mindless shoujo; I see no real value in it. The art is good, but nothing special, the plot is boring & overused, and the characters have no dimensions. I'll probably keep reading it because I don't mind stupid shoujo so much. it's a matter of opinion, I suppose.

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.

Well, I suffered through the entire first chapter, and I really dislike it.
It moves WAY too fast, not to mention the main character is so ANNOYING. Its not even realistic. I suggest you go read Hana-Kimi instead. Its much better.
Also Sum, I can't ever remember anyone seeing the Main character straight out naked and not finding out she is a girl. She just thinks they didn't. XDDDD

The premise seems interesting. The characters seem interesting. It all seems like it would be, well, interesting.

Well, turns out that it isn't.

As has been said, this manga moves WAY too fast. The female lead seems rather stupid and simple-minded as well. For example, two people already know about her "secret" within the first few chapters, AND she actually yells said secret at the top of her lungs within the first few days of being "male." Which, to me, doesn't seem like a very smart move. So I wasn't too impressed with her foresight... Or lack of it.

As for any relationship, it definitely moves waaaay too fast for the situation, and Momoko's pushiness does NOT factor in well. Who declares, without any previous thought, her love to someone she has only known for a week or two? Apparently Momoko does. Who, after only a day or two of "dating" someone, orders that he should kiss her? Momoko again.

In short, everything just goes too quickly. The gender bending aspect of this manga is completely wasted by the early unveiling of the deception, taking away much of the story's potential. Also, Momoko's general personality just rubbed me the wrong way- she's naive, pushy, simple-minded, and physically weak.

I know that I'm cutting off most of my potential understanding of the series by stopping after the first volume, but I really don't think I'd be able to suffer through it. Thus, the five out of ten.

At first, it made an impression on me that it would be one of those wierd forbidden relationships, because it just makes me shiver (other than Ouran High School Host Club)... But, I stayed with it, and through the next few chapters, I became mezmerized. yea. pathetic, but its true... I love this story, and the cuteness of everyone xD
