Ken will do anything to become an idol, and his sister Ichiko will do anything to help her brother...even pretend to be a boy to form the new male idol trio called TRIJET. The third member, Kanzaki, turns out to be the same boy who almost kissed Ichiko only days before. Itís a good thing he doesnít recognize her in her boy form, as she cannot tell anyone about her true identity. When she bumps into Kanzaki again in her girl form, she tells him her name is Ichigo. Having no idea that she's really the TRIJET member "Number One", whom he detests, or "Ichiko", the girl he almost kissed...Kanzaki begins to fall for "Ichigo". Things are getting complicated.

this series could have been so much more if the characters were more original and developed.

i read it for the gender bender cant say its really boring because you still want to find out the ending...but the ending wasn't particularly good. there was hardly anything 'romantic' about everything...heroine cries about every damn thing...

if there was no gender bender i wouldn't have been able to stand it.

3 words: dumb and cliche

i guess it was aimed at a much younger audience...

this manga was really good
Ichiko is so a lucky girl but really stupid and not at the same time
the manga is really graet until they find out ichiko a girl because after this it like a new story good to but it was really a bad move from Tajima Mimi
but if you do not consider this it is a great manga.

if i could reborn I would like to be ichiko
( no I'm not crazy)

Spoiler (highlight to view)
i hate the ending "spoiler"- she chose kanzaki the idiot guy, he always made her cry... he always ditch her and avoid her and breaking up with her cuz of his job... he sucks... how i wish the ending was he regretted that he left her and he just realized how much he loves ichiko, and ichiko fell in love with the other guy...and kanzaki was trying too hard to get her back again... he quits his job,just to be with her,he sacrifices everything for her , but ichiko can only see him as a very closed friend( who tries to do everything for her- just like kazuki in manga of tsumi ni nureta futari) and i also wish that kanzaki would say this to her "what can i do to make you love me again" and he kneels in front of her and ichiko replied "please forget about me, i can't go back now, i already moved on" and kanzaki asked her "why, why, why?)-saying this to her with a shivering loud voice.and ichiko said this to him "i already fell deeply in love with him,plss let me go" saying this ti him with her crying face and walks out to him...And i want to see this event too - he always see her happy face when she's with her new bf and thinking, he should be that person who makes her smile, and he's face looks so hurt. And after that he decided that he will just love ichiko forever and wouldn't expect to get his love returned... but then, one rainy night ichiko fell her ring (given by her new bf on her b-day) onto the street and she almost got hit by a car cuz kanzaki saved her. kanzaki was admitted to the hospital. And ichiko's bf decided to break up with her (he felt that kanzaki is way more better than him for protecting ichiko) and told her to go back to kanzaki... and ichiko agreed to it, with their sad look in their face... and then while ichiko and kanzaki were going out, kanzaki thinks that ichiko was just going out with him because of her guilt but even so, he wouldn't let her go no matter what and just to make her happy and would'nt let her cry again...and ichiko also realizes too, that she was in love with him for the whole time. And ichiko's ex-bf went out with his fiance (his fiance while he was going out with ichiko it was an aranged marriage)... and after 2 years ichiko and kanzaki got married happily ever after... hehehe this is just my opinion wether you like it or not :p

lol reading my old post makes me feel wierd i can't belive i wrote this...hehhe maybe it's becuz of frustration that i hated the ending so much and somehow i can't relate to what i said, lol it's been 2 yrs now since i posted it heheheh

It seemed really boring and choppy and I feel like I've read it Its not really anything special at all but if you havent read many shojo mangas before then i guess you might like it although me personally i only got to the first chapter of volume 2 then i pretty much knew what the rest of the manga was about so overall it pretty much sucked *my opinion*

She... picked Kanzaki... over FUCKING TENDOU.

Fuck this. This manga sucks ass.

1 for that. -_-

Kanzaki = total prick who should die and obvsly hasn't hit puberty yet
Tendou = the sexiest guy alive 8D And fuck, amazing at what he does, and he actually LOVES Ichiko, unlike fucking Kanzaki who's probably going to ditch her in Chapter 50 [if there was one]

And there was even SAISOKUE [I think that was his name?]. When Kanzaki finds out Ichigou is Ichigo, he yells at her that he never wants to see her again, reducing her tears. When Saisuoke finds out, he tells her he doesn't care, because "Ichigo is Ichigo".

But noo, she still picks the prick.

Shitty ending. I hated it. I hope Ichiko and Kanzaki die.

It's not that bad... I'd even say that it's more than OK. Usually it is standart. Thay get to know eachother, she falls for him, than they kiss and that's it. But in this short series it's not as simple as that. I mean to say there is excitement, break ups, quarrels, reunions... Author tried to make this shuojo manga more interesting, and that's deffinetly a plus. Drawing is not half assed either.

It's okay. I wouldn't suggest you read it, really, but if you want to, I wouldn't try to stop you. Ichiko crys about every little thing, the story is iffy, the way she has the first encounters with people doesn't make too much sense, everyone falls in love way too quickly and for no reason (ex. I saw you crying,therefore I love you...?), and her train of thought doesn't make sense at all. It's really really bad at pacing. It's such a pretty long series compared to others, but I've seen one shots with better pacing, so this was a big blow for me.
I like the art though. And there are tons of kissing scenes, and romantic stuff.

It is another so-so shojo manga. It was TOO CHOPPY. i felt like i was reading a story aimed at middleschoolers. The storyline could have been better.

This series is a very typical shoujo manga. I personaly only read it for the gender-bender parts of it, but there really isn't that much of a focus on that. I really couldn't connect with the main character, because she was then typical girly-girl-who-can't-decide-which-guy-she-likes. She's too dependant on the males around her for me to like her or sympathize with her at all.

cliche a bit.. but it's still really cute. the fraustration within the characters keep the story moving.. although more plot would have been appreciated. well, it maybe a typical shoujo, but good things are good things =]
