I found this manga by chance. I was in between Hana Kimi and Tenshi Ja Nai! I had to find a "filler" and I have been reading ever since. This title is one of my top 10 favs. I cannot wait for volume 7 to come out and hopefully the other volumes.
I love the story line between Umi and Naka! I know this is another "cross dressing" story, but story is cute and funny. The story gets stronger with each is well worth the read.

Not one of my top 20 faves, but if it keeps on getting better, it might as well be. It is a fun manga with a little drop of seriousness that adds some depth. It really gets into the world of modeling and, unlike other cross-dressing model-celeb manga, explores how short the celebrity lifespan of a model can be- especially if you're a guy dressing as a girl. The heroine is also strong and loyal. And the hero's inner demon-like nature causes a lot of laughs.

I'm glad that this manga is getting more and more popular. This is just one of those rare mangas that you pick up because the art looks good, but when you read it, the story gets better and better-up until you find yourself hooked in. This is exactly the type of manga you expect from Hana to Yume; Fruits Basket was also awesome in the same way.

But it's really a pity that this manga only became known AFTER it was licensed by Tokyopop and there aren't more scanlationso___+ That, and the fact that Tokyopop's dropping the seventh volume makes me wonder. What will become of Nousatsu Junkie in the states?

Anyway, this manga is worth buying, for sure. It's cute, has great art, and the characters are very interesting. But be warned, the romance blossoming is a BIT slow, and all these obstacles pop up that slows down the relationship even more, so if you like something fast and quick, this isn't the one for you(unless you are willing to risk that to see the pretty pictures).

This is one of the only manga i actually collect, I wish it was scanlated but i think its definitely worth buying lol. The art, character design and plot are all really cute in comparison to most shoujo manga. Plus the characters personalities are interesting and the plot flows better then other shoujo. I'm completely in love with the manga!

i really love this series.... the artwork is kind of lame, but if you get used to it, it ain't half bad... the story plot is really great especially the way the author balanced the way the events will happen... i really love it and it is currently my favorite now... i hope that the tokyopop publishing company will realize that this manga is not worth for postponing temporarily,,, i love and buy this manga so i hope that tokyopop will make it an ongoing project...

i like the premise but wont say its innovative, (remember Shoujo Shounen ?) its morale boosting to some maybe thats y ppl liked it but please dont compare this to kodocha, which is a work of art..this manga is cute, the drawing lines seem drawn in a way to emphasize the lightness of the atmosphere though of course she cries, he consoles, very typical actually
