From Wataame Shoujo:

The story is about Kobato going to Japan to find her brother but accidentally, she becomes an idol when she meets Takeru. The catch is, Takeru and probably everyone else thought she was actually a he because of how she acts and dresses.

Its a cute, light hearted and super fluffly manga but I was slightly annoyed by the fact that it was rushed/axed. I feel like another couple chapters would have been nice, at least to confirm her brother (though by the end we know who it is). I also don't like the fact that the brother and the boyfriend have such a strained relationship. I mean weren't they best friends? I guess I just wanted to see how everything came to be.

The mom at the beginning, although hillarious, also angered me... How did the MC and her the brother get seperated? Plot holes galore!

It's a fairly typical story - girl is mistaken as a guy and gets into entertainment in order to find her long lost brother - but because it's short at 2 volumes, a lot of the unnecessary angst and conflicts that usually come with that type of story is cut out, so the result is a lot more fun and enjoyable. The characters aren't particularly deep, but they're likeable. Kobato is a pretty simple girl and her natural lack of awareness about her own femininity makes her ease at her role more believable, while Takeru is all bark and no bite. It's nice, for once, that they gloss over the issue of how she's going to survive in the industry as a guy; it's been done often enough already. I do wish they spent a bit more time on the "brother" issue, though. It's obvious from the get-go who her older brother is, but even though it's implied that the people involved all knew about it, they never come right out and acknowledge it. A minor irritation, but the rest of it is sweet and breezy. Perfect bit of light fluff if you're in the mood.

So much of this reminds me of Hana Kimi it's ridiculous, but Hana Kimi was definitely better. The heroine is an idiot, I mean, since when are two tiny given about a person's identity enough to base a serious search when that person could be anyone in Japan?? There were so many clichés that I got a serious case of deja vu. Cute enough art, and at least the length was short enough not to drag. I didn't hate it, I liked because it was that kind of shoujo fix to hold me off, but it was really one of those run-of-the-mill types without that extra something to make it stand up on it's own.

*P.S.: I know it's not really important or anything, but seriously, how could a girl be so flatconfused couldn't they have given her AA's and been done with it? When she was dressed up in that costume, I just saw a little girl. Why not SOMETHING to make her look like a girl? When she dresses up, it's like she's actually in drag -_-

I thought this manga was really simple and cute! It is pretty predictable but if you want something light that will make you feel all giddy then i suggest reading this! Definitely wish it was longer though. The mangaka could've played with it and it coulda reached to 8 volumes. haha still, it was good

I didn't really like how the whole "brother" thing wasn't verified. It was more like the readers had to make an assumption about who her brother is because the mangaka tried to make it "obvious" without actually confirming it.

I thought this Manga was really entertaining and cute. I didn't think the ending was too rushed. I mean what more could there have been explained?
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
The couple that was supposed to get together got together, and it was clear who her brother was.

What I also liked about it was that the girl was not stupid, not whiny (even though she did cry like twice) and not annoying like most of the other shoujo manga girls. I also liked the fact that she was flat-chested. Yet, when dressed as a girl she was simply stunning. Nice one! I reccomend it!

The characters were pretty good and the art was nice. The plot seemed kinda over done but it was still a good read. It was a pretty good manga over all but it seemed way too rushed.
I was thinking "WHAT?!?!? That's it? That's how they end it?" It didn't really seem like it's over. It was more like it's on a REALLY long hiatus.

this was a pretty good manga. it was cute and funny. i liked it. it didn't get me bored but the only problem i had was that (maybe spoiler) she never found out who her brother was. like it's ovbious to the readers who it is and takeru seems to figure it out as well but SHE never fights out. wat i also didn't like was that she totally forgot about looking for her brother. like wasn't that the reason for her trip to japan. other than that it was a good manga. <3

I really enjoyed it until I got to the end of volume 2 and it abruptly ends!? It ends on a high note and left me with the impression that the series is ongoing. Nonetheless, I found the story enjoyable and will probably reread it.

I know Iori has the highest possiblity that he's the brother that Kobato is looking for. But I'm surprised that the manga didn't end with Kobato reuniting with her brother ... =.=

Dang, both bishies have the scar on their bodies which means one of them is the sibling of the girl.. My money is on Iori too, simply because I don't want this manga to turn into one of those "forbidden love incest" type of series. The guys in this manga are very good looking with sparkles in the background to support the fact that they are bishies. The girl seems to be attracted to both guys so of course this will be the same clichéd love triangle; which surprisingly I am wanting to know who she will end up with.
The question that I want to be answered most is definitely knowing who her brother is. Therefore I shall be eagerly waiting for new chapters to get this question answered. I recommend this to anyone who enjoys gender benders and show business themes.
