From Storm in Heaven:

Welcome to Momoko's waking nightmare. Things were settled, they were! She was SUPPOSED to have gone to a normal school, made normal friends, and led a blissfully normal life. But the universe is just cruelly, irredeemably, monstrously unfair, so instead she found herself thrown out of home, stuck in an all-boys boarding school with a roommate she hates, cursed with a hideous haircut and wearing clothes which, to be frank, she wouldn't be seen dead in. And the only thing worse than her current situation is the one that she'll be in if anyone ever realizes that she is, in fact, a girl. Everything is wrong! Particularly the fact that, even though she's surrounded by amazingly gorgeous guys, her chances of romance are less than zero. But with life this complicated, something's bound to give - and so it does.

I found it super enjoyable, a good blend of romance and comedy with some drama sprinkled in there. I liked how Momoko took charge of their relationship every now and then and wasn't totally passive/helpless like some heroines.... even still, sometimes it felt like she had to be rescued by Itou one too many times (and that was a little bit annoying). Overall, though, the story was very cute and the guys very hot!

Coming at this from the later chapters, I've got to say it's nice to see a shoujo heroine really enjoying the fact she's shacked up with an attractive guy in more ways than the simple angst-romance-kiss angle. A teenage girl having fun with sexuality? Shock, horror! There's a reason for the 'smut' tag.

The gender-bending aspect is, yes, a bit neglected (although at least the whole 'binding' aspect is dealt with), and the side characters are shallow at best, but it's a good, cheesy, sexy manga with attractive artwork. Great fun!

Such a cuuute manga... but seriously... no one falls in love that quickly!!
He finds out about her in the 1st chapter & declares his love for her in front of everyone in the 3rd chapter. Nevertheless, still a great read!
It's highly predictable & really chichèd and all, but MAN, can the artist draw!
It seriously is THE most CHEEZIEST maga I've ever read, but you'll still keep reading it cuz it's soo cute XD

It's a complete piece of junk. The gender bending aspect is ruined. The heroine is stupid (even stupider than the typical heroine) and pretty ugly actually. The mangaka has problems with pacing the couple's romance.. I just hate it.

Please read Hana Kimi before you read this. You'll realize which one's superior very very quickly.

I must agree with xObscurexOmenx... we'll mate, you said everything!
Make yourself a favor and go read Hana Kimi before it damages your brain!

Quote from xObscurexOmenx
The premise seems interesting. The characters seem interesting. It all seems like it would be, well, interesting.

Well, turns out that it isn't.

As has been said, this manga moves WAY too fast. The female lead seems rather stupid and simple-minded as well. For example, two people already know about her "secret" within the first few chapters, AND she actually yells said secret at the top of her lungs within the first few days of being "male." Which, to me, doesn't seem like a very smart move. So I wasn't too impressed with her foresight... Or lack of it.

As for any relationship, it definitely moves waaaay too fast for the situation, and Momoko's pushiness does NOT factor in well. Who declares, without any previous thought, her love to someone she has only known for a week or two? Apparently Momoko does. Who, after only a day or two of "dating" someone, orders that he should kiss her? Momoko again.

In short, everything just goes too quickly. The gender bending aspect of this manga is completely wasted by the early unveiling of the deception, taking away much of the story's potential. Also, Momoko's general personality just rubbed me the wrong way- she's naive, pushy, simple-minded, and physically weak.

This manga strongly reminded me of Hana Kimi but I can't help to compare the two and Hana Kimi, in my opinion, is much better. Though I think that the guy's demonic aura is quite funny, especially when he's in protect-the-girl mode =]
