M to N no Shouzou  
Login to add items to your list, keep track of your progress, and rate series!
Mitsuru is beautiful, graceful and admired by many people, but she has a weird problem—a single, violent movement against her can get her begging sweetly for more! Her nickname M, also stands for masochistic.

Natsuhiko, is a guy who found out Mitsuru's secret on their first day of senior high school. Even so, he has an equally bad problem—the mere glimpse of his reflection can send him into a flying fit about how beautiful he is! He is nicknamed as N for narcissistic.

They both hope to minimize their chances of being exposed because of their weird behaviors.

I hope this series is taken once again because so far as I've read it's hilarious, cute and full of unique characters. Their personalities are interesting and you can see their development.
I got hooked in the first chapter and have been waiting for so long for this series to be finished...

I'm really hoping for more! This Manga is unique and stands out among other Shojo. The characters are developed enough that you don't get tired of them, but still have plenty of room to grow. The Plot is interesting, and the comedy is just enough to keep the reader hooked, without spoiling any romantic or especially serious moment.
I can't wait to read more.

Tachibana Higuchi always has some crazy ideas for her stories. M to N no Shouzou is a good read. It's not a masterpiece, but it's has no major flaws that I have to point out. The idea is pretty unique - I mean, when do you ever get to read a non-adult shoujo about a masochist and a narcissist? That itself puts it on the scale. The comedy is great, a lot of the weird, but funny situations. I thought the characters are all likable (Mitsuru is adorable; she is the sort of kind, innocent female lead I will tolerate because her kindness seems very sincere and she's too funny for you to hate) and the author focuses on the romance and the characters' conflicts well enough along with the comedy. The romance is well-developed, not to slow, not too quick, and the author does resolve most of the conflicts at the end. Althought is sort of leaves you hanging. Not a lot, just a bit. But it's a cute, funny, unique series overall.

I love this manga!
It's a very amusing read. I can't help but feel for Mitsuru.
I feel that there's quite a few unresolved conflicts in the end and it certainly makes me want more but... Oh well. It's a good re-read too.

Definitely different. A masochist and a narcissist. They make a really strange couple but its funny how weird they are and the situations they get into. Some of it caused by them trying to each protect the other's secret. A weird but funny romance.

I absolutely love this manga. The characters are so hilarious~
Then again, I have friends who are very similar to them, so I might be biased. ^^;; I actually like the artwork a lot more than Gakuen Alice, probably because Mitsuru is supposed to be beautiful and Mikan is supposed to be average-looking. Still. Bonus points for eye candy of both sexes. (Though Mitsuru looks exactly like Nobara. With Permy's eye mole.)
