From Go! Comi:
In the play of life, all Hikaru Takabayashi wanted was to be part of the scenery. Tormented by jealous schoolmates ever since she appeared in a famous commercial in grade-school, Hikaru transfers to a prestigious all-girls' academy where she hopes to settle down to a quiet life of anonymity. But when her new roommate turns out to be the super-popular TV idol Izumi Kido, Hikaru finds herself thrown smack in the spotlight's glare once more!

And as if living with a celebrity wasn’t bad enough, Hikaru discovers that there’s more to Izumi than her “good girl” image—she’s a he! And this is only the first of Izumi's many dangerous secrets! Now Hikaru’s the unwilling star player in a madcap tale of deception, abduction, humiliation and blackmail…you know—the usual romantic stuff.

Didn't make me want to go out and buy it

The way I can tell rather or not a Shoujo merits a high score is rather or not it makes me want to go out and buy it. This was not one of those. Nothing new, here. The art is well done but so what? I was disappointed.

one thing that's driving me to post a comment is a gratitude for a good read...

it was a good read for passing time... i won't forget this..

after reading it, you'll just find your way grateful taking the time and ending it with a speechless smile--like saying, "I had a really GREAT time."

anyway, i think smiles don't need speeches--"sup wida 'speechless smile'?" haha
I RECOMMEND YOU READ THIS. you'll find your way smiling at the end.

yeah that's it!! after reading the comment down there...i found the right word.."HEARTWARMING"

It was mostly good. Some parts really irritated me and I personally didn't really like the heroine. I also hated the relationship between the sensei and Hikari, totally inappropiate and was soo happy when they broke up. Ending was ok for me. Art is really good.

This manga is really nice and I enjoyed reading it. I believe the author should have put a lot more effort into the topic of the main character's dream in life. It's not really believable that being 17 years old you suddenly remember the dream you had when you were 6 and after 11 years of not doing anything to accomplish you decide to give it your best effort and change your whole life accordingly.

I also think that the way in which the two characters reunite at the end is kinda forced and it could have been slower, more romantic and better explained, but it's nice all the same.

I read some critics saying that the topic with her sensei is not resolved. I think it is. He is a grown up man and he decides to do with his life whatever he wants, even if it means taking unjustified decisions that may hurt the main character. Teenage girls are able to move on after a break up so I think is only natural that she was able to get over it and decide to have a relationship with her roommate.

All in all is a really nice manga with just a couple of holes in the plot that don't stop you from loving the characters and enjoying the story.

Typical Shoujo Manga

The books said 16+ but it's surely shoujo, typical shoujo manga.
Main female character look so familiar suzuka + ouran host club?
I feel that main female character are lack of unique characteristic, just so plain, indecisive same as 80% of shoujo manga in market. It would be better if mangaka add something (ex. strong will, work hard, vision) and show it to reader from time to time.
Anyway it have touching moment (only main couple) and you can enjoy read it till it happyend.

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!

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!

will it was a nice though i prefer to see more coupling in mangas then only a few. i don't like how many that like the main characters dont a partner will this happens in many manga but the ending i think was a bit too fast i wanted 2-3 more chapters like what was Izumi doing the the time hew was missing. anyway it was a great manga until the ending.
