I found this manga rather disturbing..

After first chapter:

This manga certainly has very funny moments. But the main theme that mother sends her daughter to all boys school (where she has to hide her sex) to change her sexual orientation is rather disturbing for me.. It's not how mother should act and it's really not funny even though the manga makes fun of it. Homosexuality is neither an illness nor mistake. I bet the main girl will fall for some guy later but that's not how it works in real life..

Right now I've made it to Chapter 7, and *sigh* I just can't seem to read any more of it. The more higher up on the chapters, the more filler seems to come up. Like per character that is supposed to make up the end result, there is supposed to be a chapter on them?

And there is completly no romance in this. Maybe in latter chapters, but all I see right now is an abusive guy who likes to exploit peoples weaknesses and use it on them.
Also, did I mention the homophobia in this? I'm seriously starting to get a bad taste in my mouth. I mean seriously from Maria Holic (and the little I saw on it) to this, what is up with Japanese manga/anime and these lead males becoming meaner if the main girl character likes other girls?
More violence seems to be put forth on lesbian women, then on gay men, it seems to be? Anyway, the main male character is horrible. He is a tyrant which hits her most of the time (Even beating her up in this one place, in where they are playing dodge ball, and he kicks her, etc. etc.)
I know some aspects of this manga were meant to be funny, and people would say "oh but it's all for humor". But it failed on that regard. The only way someone could find this humourous is if they think abuse is funny, and ok, and that to degrade people that way is fine. I can take a joke, and I even think some funny giant hammer to the head (etc.) moments are funny, but when the other person is just a low down little creep like this guy, it stops being funny. (if this manga was to begin with)
Not Recommended.

Waiting on the Ending

Pretty entertaining smile I only have one worry. That is, the main character has to stay homosexual. I will get so pissed if the author makes her fall in love with a boy. That would be a total cheat. It would also be offensive because it would validate the mom's attitude. However, as long as that doesn't happen, it's all good smile So, the end is going to be important in my final eval of this.


Well, I put this on hold until I could find out what the ending was, and now that I've looked at the spoilers I can say that I won't be finishing this. Comic as it may be, it is propagating certain stereotypes which people will absorb and take seriously. In fact, it may be all the more devastating in its effect for using humour to deliver such messages.

I don't fault the people who enjoy this, but I am incredibly tired of manga where a queer character winds up realizing that hey, they can be in a heterosexual relationship too! Usually followed by the implicit adoption of expected, typical gender roles.

It might be cute and funny as a story, but the "time to make the tomboyish lesbian like boys!" aspect of it made it unreadable and hurtful to me. It may not be as overtly homophobic as a lot of other things, but for the purpose of this manga, it felt a lot like the usual cliched "it's a phase, she'll grow out of it when she finds the right man" trope. Do Not Want.

Not to mention the violence - it didn't feel very comedic to me, not at all. It just fed the anxiety I felt.

The main premise offends me though. Treating homosexuality as a disease to be treated - not cool. If you want to enjoy the manga, don't take it too seriously and it'll be an entertaining read.

i'm not much for the whole 'lets cure homosexuality' theme. originally i thought its gonna be one of those usual gender benders, and the main character just hates guys.
its ok for now, i just hope it wont go to the predictable way of her realizing her hatred for guys is a trauma from the past, and then 'so i actually... dont hate all guys' and off she goes marrying into a doctors family to be a princess.

Two chapters don't really strike me as "funny". Though I'll wait with judgement until I read full first volume. But you know, if it'll not change in the slightest, or more, will have main heroine hook up with a guy, it'd make some very disturbing implications. Like "use of "shock therapy", psychological torture and Stockholm syndrome can "cure" homosexuals". Not really nice message, if you ask me.

Not actually homophobic! A moving tale of a strong young woman.

The main character, Kei, is not "cured" of her homosexuality like other reviewers are claiming -- that is never even portrayed as a desirable or healthy thing. Kei is definitely still a lesbian at the end.

Kei is a strong heroine, who has to deal with a mother who does not understand her, and so is sent to an all-boys school with the goal of getting her to like boys. The audience empathizes with her situation as she is forced to pretend to be a boy, deal with boys who scare her to the point of puking (but with comedy), and navigate the tricky situation of boys falling for her once they find out she is female.

Yet throughout the manga Kei stays true to herself, maintaining that she really likes girls. Near the very end she is about to act on these inclinations to transfer out to a school which does have girls. But it's very clear that she decides to stay for the friendships she has built. In the last chapter, when she's deciding whether to stay, she explicitly rejects staying for the reason of furthering a romantic relationship ("Because he said he likes me? No."). And when her would-be boyfriend asks for a reply to his feelings, she can only awkwardly turn him down. At an earlier time he even acknowledges that a relationship with Kei could probably never work out because she "likes girls." She's a lesbian, people!

The mangaka does a good job with the ending, making the school become co-ed -- no doubt to Kei's delight -- and thus allowing the possibility for healthy same-sex relationships for Kei in the future.

What threw so many of the reviewers off was the very last scene where Kei lightly takes the hand of the would-be boyfriend. It's a sweet ending, and the small action was well within Kei's character given the situation.

But to interpret these last 3 pages as somehow reversing all the development and repeated confirmation that Kei likes girls throughout the entire manga is ludicrous! You have to be either stupid or looking for a reason to call this manga homophobic, or both, to believe in this magic, 180 degree character change. Give the mangaka a little credit, yeesh!

This manga is really the opposite of homophobic, since the reader gets to struggle alongside the lesbian MC and understand some of the challenges of growing up not-straight, including what an uncooperative parent can do to make your life difficult.

Houou Gakuen Misoragumi is fresh and funny, less focused on romance than most shoujo manga, and more mature. Definitely recommended.

This is so much better than stuff like Hana Kimi, Power, etc (not that they are bad or anything). I also like the lack of romance in this. It's a change from the regular shoujo gender bender.

Hard to judge on one chapter...

I'd keep on reading it. It is funny and not enough has happened to figure wheter or not is is worth a read. Plus a couple more charatcers seem to need an introduction... Art-wise it's good and the expressions and background are really well done. There is not one dull panel.

--Everything below can be referenced to what was said in the previous comments.

I'm not sure yet that the manga treats homosexuality as an illness. (As 27raven said.) The only character so far who does treat it like that is the mother. However, she is depicted as irresponsible, coercive, bitchy and self-centered and we aren't positioned to take her opinion very seriously. There is obviously something wrong and small minded in how she is forces her child to conform to her views. I'm not sure if the mother's flaws will be dealt with but her sheer disregard of anyone but herself makes her quite a dislikable and repulsive character. But who knows - the mother may have more depth than she seems to now. (ch01 pg9)

So don't judge the manga quite yet. Her views aren't the heart of the manga.

As x0mbiec0rp said, it is unhealthy for the protagonist to want to faint and vomit in the mere prescence of males. Though she prefer girls, her aversion to boys is a bit too excessive as she completely refuses to interact with them. (Just sitting in the classroom - [thought] "Argh, damn you boys! Don't get close to me!")

We aren't positioned to completely support the main charatcer either - though she has the right values (eg. what she told Yui when talking about Yajin Hospital) and clearly isn't stupid, she is a little weak willed and she tends to avoid her problems. She too has some problems to deal with.

So beyond her orientation, I think (or I hope, at least) that we'll see some growth in her character at the school (despite how wrong it was of her mother to force such a thing onto her daughter).
