From ClubManga:

Kayama Miharu enters her new middle school and immediately becomes friends with Mori Mizutama, a very cute guy she first takes to be a girl but is really a boy. However, though Miharu likes Mizutama, she cannot tell him, especially ever since the older Kawagoe (yes, a boy) seems to have taken Mizutama's interest instead. Miharu tries to be cute for Mizutama, but finds it practically impossible, as he is both more talented at home economics and more cute than herself. Then, Mizutama joins the Kawagoe's soccer club instead of the comedy-lovers' club the two of them had decided on earlier...

Japan should get over its conservative values...

"I want to be a man strong enough to protect Miharu." Ewwww that nearly put me off... Thank god that line was close to the ending. I have some complaints I'd like to add...
1. Miharu (The girl) is a better soccer player than Mizutama, so why not put her as a player and him as the manager?
2. It gives off the vibe, "No matter how feminine the boy is, it is still his duty to protect the girl."
3. If Miharu sensed that Mizutama liked the tall guy, why would she aim to be more feminine? Like, it's pretty obvious that the guy she has a crush on likes masculine why would Miharu aim to be more feminine?
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
The part when she acted the prince was refreshing though.

I gave this a 4 because at least it's better than most other shoujos...

It was adorable!!! It was nice to see the girl chasing after the cute guy for once, not the hottie jock. It may not be your cup of tea if you don't like stories where the guy is shorter or girlier than the girl, but it was definitely mine. I reccomend this story, totally. smile

Though I would have liked the relationship between the main pair to be more developed (it happened too fast), the idea itself is pretty original since it seems that whenever the main male lead is a cute and nice, but girly guy, he ends up having to chase the girl (who's more interested in a cooler guy). Birdy Kiss is one example I can think of at the top of my head, though I know it's not the only one like this. However, in this manga, the girl ends up going after cute girly guy instead of the cool guy.

The art is really nice and some parts made me smile; moreover, it was nice to read a shoujo manga with a male lead that isn't rich/cool/handsome/has mysterious past/etc. The story felt forced in some parts though and it could have been better developed. Overall, it was a nice and easy read.

I loved it! It's such a cute story! But a part of me is still screaming that it had the potential for an awsome threesome.
Spoiler (highlight to view)
How could they leave the cool guy alone in the end??

I really like Rinko Ueda's work. This one maybe isn't my favorite of hers, but it's still really cute! Although, if I was the heroine... Well, I would've gone for the other guy. XD
