Akira Tsubakiya has spent her whole life being told she looks like a boy. She’s super tall, she has a flat chest, and she’s not girly at all… In middle school, she made a promise with a boy who went to her cram school, Haru— a promise that they both would aim to get into the same high school, a prestigious academy. Haru told Akira that he likes girls with long hair, and since she started to fall for him, she grew it out. Now she’s graduating from middle school, and has decided to confess her feelings to Haru. Unfortunately, she finds out that he has a girlfriend—a super-cute, girly, long-haired girlfriend! Akira runs home and chops off all her hair, deciding that there’s no point to trying to be girly.

Fast forward to Akira’s first year in high school. She still wears a skirt, but she wears the top half of the guys’ uniform to school. She’s called “Prince Akira”, and all the girls are infatuated with her. Akira hasn’t seen Haru in a while, but she does bump into Haru’s “girlfriend”… who she discovers to be in fact a boy!

Was ended early so the mangaka could continue another series she was working on.

I agree with other comments and think that that the first chapters are a bit rushed I also sometimes get the main character mixed up with the guy she likes.
But it gets cute quickly and as long as you like gender bender it will be fine. The main character is a bit wussy but I still like her. The love interest is adorable as a girl and cute as a guy (he much shorter than her.)
The art gets better, I'm usually a massive art snob but it gets much better.

Okay so I read the whole manga expecting something wonderful, but no it goes on with the girl in love with the same guy but then all of a sodden she falls for the guy that dresses like a boy because he confessed to her. Maybe to other people that was cute or what ever but to me it seemed a bit rushed and it left us hanging. I expected more, like ate least the ending would be ten years from now and how they are because it just made me mad and I feel like it was a waste of my time.

Guilty pleasure...   
Rating: 4.0 / 10.0

I read this manga as a guilty pleasure. Though the plot isn’t well developed, the characters not the greatest and the art average, I did enjoy the story because it was very cute and sweet and for those who like cross-dressing manga’s not too shabby (if a little short).

Plot: It’s so simple, nothing much happens and I was shocked when I saw that 16 was the last chapter, I didn’t know when it ended and I didn’t feel like it was coming to an end. But then again, the story had no real direction and could end at any time now, and I’m glad the mangaka didn’t drag on the story until I did become annoyed at it. The plot revolves around three people’s romantic interests, so there are bound to be a lot of cute moments, and there were. Though I don’t think the plot was great, but I did read it all the way through and happily read each chapter, so something about it was good!

Characters: I like Neiro, a little cheeky, and mean at times perhaps, but he’s what made the manga I think. Akira was only all right, I felt she was weak and didn’t have the greatest personality. I didn’t like how boyish she looks, but I realize that it’s part of a complex she has and so on. She’s probably the weakest character in the story and I only liked her half the time. She is very kind and stands up for people so I’ll give her that. Haru was an excellent character, he was nice and kind and all around a wonderful person, there was good reason for Akira to like Haru.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
What I liked most though was that Haru didn’t end up alone, he was genuinely interested in another girl but was still nice to Akira who was after him.

Art: As I said before, the art is average but not bad. Again I’ll say I don’t like how boyish Akira looks, but I could deal with that.

Other: Guilty pleasure. That’s my final words. If you like cross-dressing or cute romances, this story is a simple short one that covers those two elements pretty well. Do I recommend it? Depends, as I said it’s not that amazing of a story, but it’s not bad either.

4/10- Ok

... proclaim the main character looks like a guy, when she so obviously doesn't.

Especially when she runs into a *super cute* girl (these are the main character's thoughts) and she's drawn exactly like the main character. There was absolutely no difference in between them except for their height, and their clothes. That's it.

The art style really isn't good for a series where they're trying to emphasize the main character's tomboyness when it's all big eyes and sparkles anyway. Not off to a good start, not at all.

Poor begaining but setting up to be better

The first 3 chapters are totally confusing. They do a poor job introducing the characters and the eventual plot conflict. The mangaka tries to cram too much stuff in, rushing to get to the setup they were going for. I wasn't really sure who was who other then the 3 characters mentioned in the summary blurb.
However, by chapter 4 it does seem to be setting into a more recognizable setup. The main conflicts are sorted out and it starts developing at a good pace. If you can get through the confusing first few chapters you might find something to like.
The art is passable shoujo style. Not terrible, not great. Characters are distinctive enough, though the cross dressing boy takes a second to realize he's wearing a different wig.

Rating: 3 of 5 (as of ch5) Higher if you prefer gender-benders
With the rushed confusing start, there isn't enough to really rate it higher. Could improve to a 4, but I don't ever see it rating a 5.

I really enjoyed this, and I thought all the characters were likeable! It got a little crazy at times, but this is honestly the best manga by this mangaka. I don't really like her other works.

the main character is really annoying. she comes across to me as pathetic and weak. maybe she'll get better in the later chapters but in the four chapters i have read, i just found myself feeling annoyed.

Seriously confusing manga with a story that's hard to follow at times (might be due to bad translation). The art is (far) below average and the characters (or how they are treated) are all annoying or downright irritating.

Have not been able to find any motivation or reason to read on, dropped after chapter 3.
