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.

I never thought she could top Sai, but Hana is probably the most dislikable character I have yet to see in a shoujo.

Especially having only one older sister myself, I can't begin to explain how disgusting and reprehensible I find her to be. A sister should never get pleasure from making her sister feel pain like that.

Still, as usual, the manga is fantastic and Ageha is showing up to be a truly dynamic character. Great stuff as usual. You just can't go wrong with Ueda Miwa. Even when it's cliche, it still feels original and brilliant.

This manga is a lot like Peach Girl.
It's very captivating and addicting.
Sadly, the English scans almost never update.
Unless you can read the raws (which there are tons of), I suggest you wait for a dedicated scanlating group to show up before reading this.
This manga is very well drawn and written, the romance is cute, lots of jealousy, and you will probably feel bittersweet reading this.

devoured the first two volumes. I find this manga to be refreshing depict the cliche storyline. And the heroine, Ageha, is pretty likable. Ageha can come off as weak and needy at times, but she really does try to change and she DOES change. And the relationships between all the characters are pretty well-depicted here too. I'm giving it an 8 because though it is a fun story so far, it's doesn't have the intriguing factor.

Right now, I am so loving reading this manga. It's so good, there are tearful & comedy scenes. Usually I don't laugh or cry anymore for manga because I read a lot and I'm starting to get sick of reading shojo. smile

I've only read the first volumn, and needless to say it's super sweet! Yeah, the concept of the pretty girl stealing the heroine's man has been done to death, but the twins aspect really freshens up the genre! Can't wait for more!

Even tought it is very alike with peach girl , this serie is still different .
I liked very much , it's a nice story but i hope this serie won't be to long to not ruin this cute manga storyline.
Bu the weak point of Papillon is that is kinda predictable abt who Ageha ( Chou ) will end up with , in my opinion .
