To be fair I don't really like the genre but I've read much better stuff before. It's all been done before and adds nothing new. The story is incredible slow paced with an unimpressive ending. I found myself genuinely bored as all I was reading was a bunch of people enjoying school life with little to no conflict or anything. The comedy was cliche, the characters were dull. I kept on thinking it'll get better since its rated so high but I can't recommend this to anyone except twelve year old school girls.

this may not be might top choice but hanakimi does belong to my golden list. funny gender-bender genres really appeal to me. no need to think, just let your body react to those awkward and tense situations.

art is nice, sano's side profile is cool. personality-wise, i like nakatsu the best, he's just too pure and naive. if only i could be a mangaka, i would have created a nakatsu X mizuki spin-off because they're just so adorable but...oh well.

Hm... what to say about this series....
First of all, the artwork for this was great right from the beginning, very pretty and nice to look at in general. (Got a bit funny looking close to the end of the series though when the author changed her style a bit... should have to stuck with the way it was before IMO). The story, with the whole gender bender thing wasn't too original but I think where the main strength of these types of series lies is in interesting characters and comedy and Hana Kimi has these in abundance. All the characters are likeable (personally my favourite was Nakatsu -- he made me laugh the most biggrin) and the romance was sweet.

However, I think the ending could have been done better and a more interesting plot would have gone a long way. However, if you're in the mood to read a shojo school life series with not too many complications, this is just the thing.

This was so frustrating to read! Not that it was bad, it was soo awesome -- it's just one of those painful reads. Almost like scary movies where you just want to yell out "HE'S RIGHT BEHIND YOU!!" lol -- that's the best way I can put it.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but this is not supposed to be a deep, thought-provoking manga. Quite frankly, I love that about it. It's light, humorous, interesting, and -- I have to admit it -- I love the main guy character. XD It's one of my all-time favorite shoujo mangas. The artwork is really pretty, too. And, EXTREME PLUS: it doesn't glorify rape, which is something I've found too many mangas do. The main guy character keeps his hands to himself, even when he's stuck in some precarious, cliche situations. :3 So.. 10/10 for me. I love it. <3 (Even though the ending was so quick... Bah.)

Nice, sweet, re-readable, shoujo, funny...
Funny how I read this, like, a million years ago.
I love the characters in this one. It managed to keep me interested until the end (even though I sorta lost interest at the end...).
Give it a shot if you haven't.
9/10, but I'm usually always too nice on my ratings.
And if you liked it, I would reccomend Boku ni Natta Watashi... Trust me, it's better.

Well, I like it and everything. Funny from time to time, easy to read, characters are likeable enough.
But, like, it's a bit too... convenient. Everything resolves itself, usually in the same way, and after a time it was too predictable. "Sano saves the day again".
Also, maybe it isn't true in the actual volumes, but whenever the head of the third dorm speaks German -I know German- the translations are completely incorrect. It just annoyed me. Although I know that's a problem with the group, not the manga.

Anyway, I would reccommend this for a fun read, but if you're looking for an amazing manga, look somewhere else. 7 out of 10.

What a disappointment. Nothing is new about this manga. You'll find a lot of unrealistic events and choices the main characters will make, which is enough for you to stop reading altogether. If you love gender bender and don't mind cliches and annoying characters, this is for you.

Maybe I'm begin unfair and not giving this manga a chance. Actually, I've given this manga two chances, reading the first and second chapters two times (3 month gap) and still didn't like it. To be fair, I'll give this a 5.
