One day, on a whim, 20-year-old Minato dresses up in her friend's cute high-school uniform and goes out briefly into the city. To her horror, she ends up running into her stepbrother, Tooru, who is actually only months younger than her. Since he's cute, and a notorious player, Minato has had to deal with constant jealousy and suspicion from other girls all through their school days. Amazingly, she manages to convince Tooru that she's actually someone who just happens to look a lot like his sister. He is so convinced that he starts trying to date her and, for various reasons, she goes along with it. What started as a simple joke is now evolving into the biggest lie Minato has ever told.

Note: Nominated for the 39th Annual Kodansha Manga Awards in 2015.

Silly Minato

Her plan seems to make a little sense until you realise that when they break up he'll probably completely relapse
It's quite a funny series though with a decent premise that it hasn't failed to live up to so far.

From a selfish viewpoint, I want scores of people to pick this up. That way it's more likely to get scanlated faster as there are bound to be people among them that can help.
From an empathic perspective, I'd tell people not to pick it up until it's finished. It's so interesting it's torture to have to wait for the next release...
I love the art, and yes, it's better than on the cover.
Temporarily giving this a 10 to promote it (according to my first paragraph). Will be reducing that to what I feel appropriate when it's finished, though I assume it's going to stay above 8.5, unless the Mangaka screws up badly.
:S This is also one of those mangas that makes me really feel like wanting to hurry up and get a girlfriend asap... >_> kinda feel like I'm an RL version of Abecchi from Good Morning Call now...
Reading ahead with the help of a dictionary and ~15min per page to read (expect major spoilers): omg
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Tooru looks so cute/sad when crying because she wants to break up
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
o.O he proposed (after she says no kinky stuff outside of marriage) (she refuses based on them still being students etc)
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
if I understood correctly, Minato has become jealous of Mina. in any case she (unsuccessfully) tries to seduce Tooru
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
at the end of volume 3, Kurasa-kun or whatever he's called sees her as Mina in the city but instead of speaking to her to confirm, he calls her phone. volume ends with him revealing he's standing behind/next to her.

Hm, seeing as how all of that has been scanlated since I wrote the above, I could probably get rid of the spoiler tags. Just read up to c31 in English, starting from the beginning. Everything I said so far still holds. The Kurasa-kun thing worked out way better than I expected, too,
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
part of it being that I hadn't realized she'd broken up with Kurasa-kun
. I even kinda wish we'd get to know if/when Tooru figures it out soon, even if Mina(to) doesn't get to know yet, just to get some assurance that they'll end up together.

PS: If anyone knows how I can buy this in a way that benefits the mangaka, tell me please.

I loved this and I found myself falling for the art.

I'm not so into step-sibling romances but this is just so well done with very likable characters! I find the female lead very lovable and the two guys are just so...I love them both so much.

Funny, this manga was able to, as another reviewer said, hook me in. I'm not into step-sibling romance, not into plots being driven by the problem of fessing up to a deception, not into love triangles, but this manga is just so refreshing to read. Very well done.

I just feel bad for Karasuma since I'm guessing he's gonna get his heart broken eventually. But I'm only predicting this so we never know if the mangaka will be pulling anything's just...Karamusuma-kun is so kindhearted and pleasant and refreshing and Tooru is also lovable, cool, and sexy.

They're both very sweet

Very funny, and not cliched. I like it a lot, DESPITE that I typically very much dislike the older female younger male category. It's definitely a fresh read from other typical step sibling romance mangas.

I'd say the drawings are pretty average, but it's not to the point that it's bad.

But the story has really good plot, it keeps you reading it and wondering if

at first i thought it was just going to be another manga full of cliches but after reading the first chapter, i realized that this one is very refreshing. the way the situation of "step-siblings and lovers" here is different from others. it definitely made my day when i discovered this. the artwork is cute and fits the story. definitely made me laugh even though the main character, Minato, is being stressed out because of her uncommon predicament. i give this manga a 10/10 (for now) because the balance of the story is perfect. it's not too comedic that it's stupid, neither is it too serious that it's annoying. smile i hope more people will start to read this. smile

Normally I don't squeal as much as I did when reading this manga. I couldn't help it though I just...thought the guy was the sweetest thing ever. Too bad guys like that don't exist in RL. lol smile Good manga!

I initially get to read this manga accidentally. fortunately, i chose to give it a go. The plot was the usual, but its got a good twist. Tooru is a wonderful character who seemed like a jerk but is really soft inside, you'll want to keep him forever. Read it. I've only read up to volume 2 so far, fortunately for me I can understand japanese. Volume 3 is not out yet... so sad...

I agree with the previous reviewer - don't get fooled by the cover. It may look like a typical, ugly art shoujo... but OH GOD IT ISN'T. The art inside is so stylish and CUUUTE. The expressions are hilarious, and the story is the sweetest thing ever so far. I want to know what happens next so bad.

This is not a typical shoujo manga about step-brother and step-sister. Most of the time you have the step-brother who is an absolute jerk and the main character girl, for all of one chapter, dislikes him. And then falls head over heels for him while he treats her bad. NOT IN THIS ONE. The main character girl is so cute and funny, and I love how it's opposite - the brother is crazy about her, and she finds him a bit annoying. It's hard to describe. All I can say is, READ IT. YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT.
