Amazingly Stupid

All of these characters are extremely animated and probably way too overbearing in real life, but because they're all at an 11, they balance each other out.

Izumi is very cringe garbo mangaka who has the Otokonoko vibes to him. He's very young and dumb (and probably full of...). Him and every character in this book have very easy to read emotions which probably makes them flat and simple, but it makes it that much easier to just turn thinker cap off and watch the Stupids.

The entire Sena family has some screws loose (probably comes with being the 1%). Takajo is very immature and starts acting like Izumi which is unfortunate, yet so painfully funny to me.

I will say that I'm waiting for the blossoming romance of Kuroii and Saotome to be developed. Shogo and Rei are probably the best couple here (I mostly admire Rei being the mostly logical one in most situations), but that can wait for the Back Stage review.

I'm grateful it hit an end, the way it was tackled was extremely poor and perhaps a bit too much of a jump considering what we've learned and experienced about Izumi. That being said, it's a little bit fitting how messy it is.

I enjoyed this way too much, but I also sped read it in like 1 night, 1 day.

This is one of those guilty pleasure manga. The art is gorgeous and the characters are adorable. The plot is extremely silly to the point of being ridiculous.

Its worth experiencing if you really enjoy yaoi drawn to be very pretty. I've finished the anime as well and I remember enjoying the manga much more. I didnt like the English voice casting for Izumi.

This manga started out cute enough. A silly premise that makes next to no sense, but because of the art and how cute it started I kept going through it. However, you can only overlook so many inconsistencies and bad, bad story arcs before it ruins any promise it might have had. They put the characters though some dark, nonconsensual stuff and play it off like it was not a big deal.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
At the end Izumi basically gets abducted and nearly raped and they just laugh it off like it's just another little prank they have to deal with.

No honestly I would have been turned off for real xD
Drawings were good but the story was soooo lame...
I liked none of the characters. It was so cheesy, so cliché.. wtf ? *facepalm*
I wondered if I wasn't actually reading a shitty shoujo ^^'
Please people you should read more yaoi and you'll understand why this one is bad.

Nothing special in it. Especially the cross-dressing thing made me almost throw up. This "popular" manga/anime has all the cliches I hate. That usual "Cutie-pie" uke and the normal seme (I don't really know how to describe it... The seme just can't restrain himself from wanting the uke). The only cliche that I didn't find in this manga (even after being so cliche-ful itself) was that it doesn't have any "rape"! The first time of mine finding a manga with no rape!
I'm not hating. The art is very cute and fluffy. Would totally recommend to anyone who is finding something cute to read.
I also agree with lifeincircuit and hervor . As said, nothing unique in this manga. Just your average seme-running-after-cute-girly-uke thingy. I've read enough mangas to know those usual contents. Totally not for me.

It's basically a mixing pot of shoujo cliches with a generous dollop of Yaoi added in. I think its quite cute, and very funny. However, cliches are prevalent throughout, and not all of the characters are like able.

The seme, though he is rude toward the uke at first, soon adopts a refreshingly respectful attitude that is maintained throughout. The uke is weird and his motives are sometimes hard to understand, but he's a funny character.

It's not a super great manga, basically a fluffy, soft, yaoi version of skip beat.

I like this mangaka but I dont like this manga because its feels like there is no real emotions in there. I think that it s based on how the characters are not "character" but just uke and seme, they are not unique at all this kind of mainstream characters are just soo predictable that kills all the story and pleasure of reading. You do know how they are going to kiss, how going to respond the situations etc. Yeah it can be good yaoi but not for me.

Cute shoujo

I just read one volume, so my review is just based on that.
This manga is VERY shoujo-y, it's basically the exact format of a fluffy shoujo romance, the uke even looks like a girl too/cross dresses. That said, it's pretty cheesy/forced, yet it still had me smiling and laughing throughout the entire volume. This is a nice light read for a comedy, but I wouldn't expect anything serious in the romance/yaoi department, other than what you normally get from generic shoujo mangas. I don't mind reading this to kill time, but personally i prefer for angsty/serious yaois.
