Ai o Utau Yori Ore ni Oborero!  
Login to add items to your list, keep track of your progress, and rate series!
Akira Shiraishi, a young high-school boy with feminine features, joins Blaue Rosen, the all-girl band that Mizuki Sakurazaka, an androgynous girl of the same age, performs lead electric guitar in.

Their high-school life is anything but typical: Mizuki is the "prince" of her all-girl school while Akira is the "princess" of the neighboring all-boy school. A series of comical events brings them closer together, even as the prejudice of the people around them tries to hold them back.

it's really weird, the Blaue Rosen members really look like males (and their body don't look like those of a female either XD)

I usually love works by this author and this one is no different but a manly heroine is a major turn off. I stopped reading it quickly.

I also got confused in the beginning, but I understand it better when I understand that Mizuki has a pure girls heart smile
It's very good.

To be honest, I usually hate Shinjo Mayu's stories, but I still can't help keeping up to date with her manga because my little sister and I discuss about them often. I started reading Ai Wo Utau Ore Ni Oborero! with skepticism, then confusion, started once again from the beginning after five pages and adored it.

For once the cute guys weren't all macho, since they were girls. The heroine in this story is more a pretty boy than the usual pretty/cute/timid girls we usualy see in her stories and it makes her so much less annoying. Mizuki gets more feminine as the story progresses, but only because Akira does everything in his power to make her fell like a girl. He acts like a cute girl when he can profit from it to get Mizuki, but he will act manly to completely conquer her. The first time Akira smiled his manly smile, I was completely won by this manga and I haven't been dissapointed by the following chapters yet.

It's a pretty good manga. The art is lovely though the story gets pretty weird because you have to keep telling yourself that a certain character is a girl or vice versa. I had to stop reading it for a while because the story felt a little awkward to me even though it's a het couple.

It is pretty good though, so I would recommend it. Though be prepared to feel confused a lot.

This manga is pretty confusing at first.. but you get the hang of it after the first two chapters. ^^ I wish I could have seen more of Shun though. Haha. The relationship between Akira and Mizuki is too cute. & somehow, I find it pretty hilarious. ^^ Most of the time I have to keep reminding myself which of them are girls and which are guys. However, it's definitely entertaining to read this manga. ^^ Shinjo Mayu!

I love this manga and I'll tell you why. Not every guy is going to be tall dark and handsome and not every girl is going to be your small,dainty, feminine beauty, and It's seldom that you see a manga that strays from convention but with this fact in mind, Ai wo Utau Yori Ore ni Oborero is brought to us. You have Mizuki who looks more like a Bishounen than your typical girl and Akira a rather enfemminate guy who's hell bent on claiming every inch of Mizuki for himself. I love it! You would think with such a masculine looking girl and uke looking boy that there would be no chemistry, but this manga is smoldering. With every kiss, and near miss if you know what I mean, the reader is drawn deeper and deeper into the erotic chase as Akira draws closer and closer to claiming the only thing he wants, Mitzuki. The art work is beautiful and the story line interesting enough to keep you glued to your seat for hours. I would recomend reading this to anyone who wants a little something different in their romantic read.

Because of the beautifully drawn ambiguously gendered pair, and refreshing take on romance, I gave Ai wo Utau Yori Ore ni Oborero a 10. trust me, it's just that good!
