Sexual assault, how romantic

This starts off with the love interest pushing the female protagonist down stairs and photographing her naked while she lies unconscious, then his henchman threatens her life with a sword to her throat and blackmails her with the nude photos. Later, he pins her down on a bed and tears her clothes off while threatening to rape her. This mean-spirited manga wallows in bullying and assault. This may work for some, sure there are many twisted love stories out there... but I think readers deserve to know what they are getting into, hence this comment.

Tenshi ja Nai!! was a nice read, and I loved the main female character - she had a mind of her own!!!! - but it wasn't amazing. I wouldn't buy it, at least. It's got a pretty cliched plot that I've seen before, and it's just not that fantastic. Worth reading, though, just not more than once.

This series was so sweet! ^_^

Yes, the plot has been done before, there may not be much background on the characters and there are some plot holes to be found. However, it just has this charm...and I found that I like it a lot!

I agree with the others that the characters' dreams were kind of sudden, there weren't much foreshadowing or indications about them, but when I read it I wasn't bothered at all, as I was too immersed in happiness and fluffy feelings xD

And about the teacher...I think that they both had moved on. Perhaps the author could have elaborated more on that but I was ok with it. The main pairing didn't become too boring once they're together (which IMHO often happens in other series), although for some reason I personally liked it more when they weren't together. heh.

I actually read some reviews that said the ending to the series is going to be disappointing, so I didn't have such a high expectation for the ending. That said there were things that could be improved...but mainly because I didn't want the series to end as I finished it in one day!

thought it would be a nice reversal from the girl in disguise mangas that have generally been good but starts off weird which left a bad taste in my mouth throughout, even during the little good this series has.

I love the story's premise, and I just adore the guy that dresses up as a girl. He's too cute---although he can be psychopathic and severe (like when he sexually harassed the poor main character). His character was never really developed--except in terms of attractiveness (but who needs that? Humph. bigrazz ) The girl fell in love way too quickly and way too deeply with the other dude at the beginning, and I just simply cannot comprehend how.

(Perhaps it's because I firmly believe in the slow type of love)... I did enjoy seeing how she stood back up and got over him though. That was pretty inspirational.

I couldn't stand the one dimensional storytelling at many points throughout the series, but I kept reading because I loved the premise of having a cross-dressing celebrity right under the same roof. Ho ho ho. Also, many characters had no purpose and would just randomly appear--such as the hot butler/bodyguard guy. What is he even doing?

The art was good, but it would be awkward at times. I, for one, eventually got so tired of seeing the girl's crying face I would close my eyes and sigh when I see it. The problem with this manga was its never-ending series of drama and the girl's inability to solve them.

And because the author whipped through every arc so fast, I never had a chance to get attached to any of the characters. Not even my favorite guy. Come on now.

p.s. I feel like this author usually writes more R-rated manga because some of the parts throughout this series felt very....crude. Like, stripping people down and stuff. sad

This manga was one of the best I have read. While the story line was fantastical, the characters were wonderful which made it all seem totally realistic. The plot had an ease to the momentum while not being too slow. The character development was wonderful. All in all excellent art, storyline, and characters (not to mention cute). Loved it!

It's a must read. The plot was refreshing, the characters were pleasently dawn, and the chemistry was great. The overall message was positive with a satisfying ending. The storyline was told at the perfect pace, there wasn't a scene in the entire serie that made me yawn.
I wish she continued this still have soo much potential. A+++

i just started this manga but it shows great promise. its the guy that has to conceal his gender in this one so it gives us an interesting dymnamic because she has to protect him, but at the same time be a 'girl' so that he'll fall in love with her. i haven't read a one like this before so i'm really interested in how the characters will interact with other characters and what kind of love triangles will arise (but i guess a love triangle is a love triangle and there really isn't much more to it, but still, there's the resolution) so really looking forward to it and REALLY wanting the rest to be scanlated soon!!

This manga was actually quite a fun read even though it was far from perfect. Whilst I loved the main characters I felt like there could have been a bit more depth to both of them. I also felt like the series could have gone on for at least another volume or two, it ended just when things seemed to have been very shaken up and could have been interesting to see the events span out. I would have also loved for more character development for the side characters, I feel, though a few got some good recognition, that a lot of them were very glossed over. Even the characters pasts are somewhat glossed over, as if the author didn't truly have a firm grasp on story telling yet. Some examples of this came from Izumi's helper (whose name I have already forgotten) who was a dear friend, we find out some of his past but it's resolved quite quickly and I would have liked to have seen more depth from his character. There was also a cousin introduced whose position and reason for being there seems all but useless now. There was also the male comedy duo characters that could have used with a bit more spotlight. Basically, in this manga, almost everything revolved around the main, which isn't the greatest of story telling, even when other people were going through their own problems, again, Hikaru would be involved in some form or another. Besides all this and a lackadaisy ending, it was somewhat entertaining to read.
I do also have to commend it for it's somewhat different portrayal of stereotypical gender roles in shoujo manga. Emphasis on somewhat though, as, despite their appearances, they still fall into the sterotypical gender portrayels mentally.
