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.

The girl annoys me. The guy is so perfect--almost too perfect for her. She's pretty dumb and kind of selfish most of the time. I hate it when one person always has to make sacrifices in the relationship in this case it is the guy over and over. She's helpless. Despite all that it's a somewhat satisfying smutty shallow shoujo.

It's like a less-developed Hanazakari no Kimitachi e with mature themes. I enjoyed the art quite a bit and found myself somehow emotionally invested despite the shortness of the story.

Was great! haha, that's all I read of this series, actually, since people recommended it. The oneshot had a pretty good plot line with interesting characters, anyways smile

It started strong then...

1. Poor development
2. Inconsistency
3. Bizarre *in an unfavorably stupid way* smut
4. Cliche
5. Man, it's just bad

There's no reason not to try this, if you like shoujo romances, this is a good one. The story might be a little predictable but then most shoujo manga are. Momoko's romance with Itou is complete and he makes the perfect boyfriend, so you won't be disappointed. Plus the art is nice too.

Like many before me, it's important to mention that this manga is indeed very clique. Still, it's a funny read that will keep you entertained.

There's nothing new about a girl cross-dressing as a guy and sneaking into a boy's dorm. And it's pretty obvious from the very start where the whole thing is headed.

But still, the art is gorgeous, Seriously, the guys are HOT. And the main character, despite being your typical main heroine has some funny quirks to her that sort of sets her apart from other heroines with the same personality. Plus, I think the romance was well developed for the most part.

If you're looking for an original shoujo that will keep you on your toes, then no, this isn't the manga you should be reading. But if you're looking for a fun romance with quirky characters, then it wouldn't hurt to give this a try.

Characters: 6.5/10
Art: 10/10
Plot: 6/10

... but enjoyable. There were moments that made me cringe and the plot's incredibility was seriously stretched even as a comedy. Momo was such an airhead with a constantly surprised, vacuous look on her face and always getting into trouble that I was suprised Itou didn't just abandon her out of sheer exasperation... but still he has been stuck in an all boys' school all this time... wink

Talk about a too perfect male lead; athletic, gorgeous, intelligent and in love with an ordinary girl ... catnip to adolescent readers haha (... sixteen year old boys don't usually ignore their admirers... there must be at least one of them that he would choose wink ).

Still, Itou is too gorgeous it should be made illegal... guess thats why I stuck with this to its dumb conclusion biggrin .

If you want to read a manga with depth then this manga isn't for you because everything in here is just a futile attempt for the mangaka to excite readers with random smutty moments, if you like that then yea go ahead and proceed reading it.

Anyway, what surprises me is the oneshot included at the end: "'The Changing of Feeling Line". It was simply incredible that it made me feel like finishing this manga wasn't completely worthless.

If you're looking for a very different shoujo story, then this is not for you, but if you just need a very nice, feel good shoujo romance, then this is it. There isn't much new in it, but it's well-made with pace, art and an okay plot. You will be entertained if you just read this without too high expectations.

I also liked the first extra story in volume five.

This is not deep in any way, but a sugary romance for a girl in a lovey mood.

I love this manga- I must have reread it about 30 times. The plot is good and steady, it never gets boring and never gets repetitive. The comedy is great, I always found myself laughing out loud and the romance was adorable- with just enough sexual tension to get me squealing. XDDDDD I loved the characters, even the supporting ones and thought each one was developed nicely. The only thing that would have made it better is if it were longer!!! X3 I <3 Shimaki Ako
