Papillon - Hana to Chou  
Login to add items to your list, keep track of your progress, and rate series!
Ageha, an ordinary (and rather unpopular) girl, is constantly overshadowed by her popular and beautiful twin sister, Hana. Because Ageha grew up in the countryside with their grandmother while Hana was raised by their parents, the two girls ended up with drastically different personalities.

For the most part, Ageha remains a silent and hidden student in the school, with only one friend (who isn't all that nice either). In fact, nobody even really knows that she is Hana's twin sister, because despite looking alike, there is still a large gap between their levels of beauty and popularity. When Hana finds out that Ageha has a crush on a cute boy named Ryuusei (who is actually Ageha's childhood friend from the countryside), Hana becomes curious about their relationship.

However, after hearing that Ryuusei hates people like Hana, Hana becomes irritated and using her charming personality, actually manages to snag Ryuusei as her boyfriend! Ageha is left with no one, but thanks to the strange new school counselor, and some unexpected allies, Ageha decides to do her best to get Ryuusei back.

A very good read

Well for me, the whole thing started off good and went downhill...BUT after I picked it up and this time read from vol 1-4 to vol 5-6 after my school library finally got it in their hands smile it started to pick up again. MORE DRAMA! YEAH! Ex-bfs and ex gf's little sister!
Hana and Ageha start to come to terms with each other...even though they both want the same guy.
Ageha's character goes up and down, but you do see character growth in the later volumes. I kind of understand why she's so insecure...because of Hana...but then again they both have a complex for each other.
Ageha's protectiveness/insecurity is really funny sometimes xD but everything will clear up and come clean as light as day.
A good shoujo read, I recommend it to people who like shoujo with DRAMA. lol biggrin

at first I found it nice to read : the beginning is nice and you want to know more (I have never read Peach girl before so... ) BUT the more I read, the more I could not stand Ageha becomes irritating ! just like her sister ! lol I mean at first she was a crybaby but she has something strong in her but after she was always crying and whining I could not stand it... I just quit reading it...

I seems like its getting lengthy and cliche...and too much like Peach Girl. I thought it was humorous how she "brought her characters back to life" with slightly different features...but come on. If I knew this would be a Peach Girl remake, I would read the original again. The only thing different is there are twins, and the main girl doesn't tan easily. -___- The only character I like is Kyuu (probably because he reminds me of Wiley Kiley, but I found Kiley to be more funny), Hana doesn't really reach Sae standards xD I prefer Sae, since I have a love-hate relationship with Sae (Sae's story was pretty good and heartwarming ;D). and just hate for Hana.

Better than Peach Girl, but if you're not a big drama lover, then you might not like it. The beginning was really nice, but it sort of became a cliche later on. It's readable. And at times, the cliches are sort of cute. Overall, it's a nice read for when you have time, but don't expect something spectacularly amazing.

I'm putting it on hold because it's such a drag. Similar to Peach Girl to a certain extent. I feel like the author plagiarizing her own works... Too much drama for me and the release is kinda slow which is not working for this kind of manga so I just decided to put it on-hold for now and you may as well hold not to read it until it's translated/scanlated completely.

I'm actually finding myself liking like series. Unlike Peach Girl, there isn't much frustration and the main character is trying to change herself. That's what I like about this series. Also, the psychological stuff that the author discuss are pretty interesting.

The only thing that is the current strong backbone of this series is Kyuu, her counselor. Let's hope Hana emerge as a butterfly in the end.

How original can Miwa Ueda get? This series basically has the same plot as Peach Girl - the backstabbing character that can't let the poor heroine be happy. I enjoyed reading Peach Girl when I was in middle school...but maybe I've changed since then. Both Ageha and Hana have annoying personalities. I stuck with the series during the first two volumes because I liked some of the psychological insight that the counselor gave, but I give up. The twins get on my nerves too much.

okay,i dont know why i still read this,honestly.maybe because the releases are pretty far apart,but if i had to read the entire thing in one go,i would give up after 3 or 4 chapters...soooo cliché,and annoying characters,really...i cant imagine how could it have been dragged for 8 volumes...i remember i liked the beginning,but after a while its your typical stuff (misunderstandigs,uneasyness and such)...but im gonna read it through even so,just to put it behind.

Not that great... lots of cliché, typical shojo stuff. The evil sister is hard to take seriously. One good factor is Kyuu, who is pretty much hilarious, though his relationship with Ageha becomes less cute once they actually start dating. So, yeah, overall nothing really special...

I tried really hard to give it a shot but I can't read it anymore. I feel like the plot is too messy and Ageha is doesn't trust her bf enough.. Their relationship is weak and Hana is such a bitch! LOL I read up to vol four but I didn't take it seriously. I liked the first volume but in my eyes, I liked it less and less. Although, I do like her other work, Peach girl. I'll put it on hold for now and I hope it improves when I read it next time biggrin
