Kyo Aizawa's father is a basketball devotee but has been forced to quit playing his precious sport because of an injury. Instead of himself working his way up to the NBA, he feels that Kyo, his daughter should fulfill his dream. To give Kyo a good start in her career of basketball he enrolls her in Seishu High School which is known for two things: its extremely cute girls' uniforms and their boys' basketball team. Not only does unhappy Kyo have to pretend to be a boy during the day (the basketball team members all live at the school to boost the team spirit), she has to do it day and night. The super-star of the team, Chiharu Eniwa, may be a good-looking, basketball champion, but his attitude towards Kyo is hostile from their very first meeting. Poor Kyo ends up roommates with the evil Chiharu. As they get to know one another, both sense that the other has a secret.

i don't think it's fair to compare ggg and hk just because they have similarities in plot. i like both of them for different reasons, but this review is about ggg, not hk ;) i thought it was great, and one of my favorites.

While the parallels are obvious, I think it's worth stating that while Hana Kimi goes for drama/character development, Power!! is far more focused on comedy, which works brilliantly.

Except for that one weird story arc/subplot with the crazy guy, but I just pretend that never happened. The other characters seem to have.

For anybody looking for a comedy, this manga is an excellent choice. The humor is witty and intense. It's one of the few things that could really make me really laugh. The comedy isn't the only thing this manga has going for it though, the characters are all vibrant and full of personality - the characterization is top notch. The characters are always falling into different amusing situations and you could never get bored. The romance is also very sweet. It's heartwarming and realistic when it needs to be.

It's disappointing to see Hana Kimi fans looking in to this and thinking that because that it's different, it can't be good though. But seriously, Shizuru Seino is a genius. Even if you are having doubts, you should still give it a go and maybe you'd change your mind and be glad that you did.

No, really. There was all this serious stuff thrown in the middle which actually kills the story - because some how, I lost the point of the story there. But after all that serious stuff got over the mangaka threw in some really crazy stuff which made me laugh really hard. I give it an 8.5 for making me laugh so much.
But otherwise, it seems like a ripoff of Hana Kimi - which is a great manga - there's not much to be said about the plot and the ending was shoddy. It doesn't help much that Aizawa resembles Mizuki BIG TIME (to me atleast). Nothing special, realy. Read it only if you want to laugh.

Still prefer Hana-Kimi kthx

Even if I read this series ages ago, Hana-Kimi still pawns GGG's ass by a longshot. ;D Not saying it's bad... but HK is better. n.n

Perhaps it's because i have read similar and were better but i felt this one was really unrealistic for the gender bender times i could not believe my eyes, fantasy?supernatural? It was pretty funny though, so not a complete loss.

Artwork was shoddy. Story was bland. Humour was sub-par. Ending wasn't very good either. Sure, it gave a few laughs, but compared to the length of the entire thing, it wasn't enough for me. And all they played were practice games -_-'
I wouldn't recommend this unless you have quite a bit of spare time.

Honestly the story is very simple but i gave it and 8 cause it succeeded in being the light and laugh out loud gender blender manga. I also think that the main girl (Kyou) is super cool considering that she is a tomboy and can kick other guys ass.

Well if this is your thing GO GO GO!!!
