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 decided to read this despite what most comments said. And I have to say I was throughly impressed. There's some humor here and there and plenty of cute romance. She doesn't change her personality to fit in with the boys, and that's one thing I like about her. But what's annoying about her is that she's ditzy, naive, and pushy at times. Also some notice that she's actually a girl pretty fast which I also like because truly how long can a girl last in an all boys academy without being noticed?

I recommend it. But at points the story is great, then goes downhill, then brings itself up again with a twist.

Good, but storyline unimaginative

I read Hana Kimi, same deal. Except it is more realistic and the delusional "you-saw-me-naked,-but-I-still-think-that-you-think-that-I'm-a-boy" attitude is fortunately left out... unlike *cough* (Hana Kimi) which reeks with it, where the high school apparently has an IQ-average of 80.
* BTW I actually LIKE Hana Kimi... but I'm being a critic here :3

On my charts the 7 equivocates between B- and C+.

Too Fast

Not my stuff. The story's too fast, there's no focus on the relationships, and it's like I'm just skimming over it rather than reading it. Everything just goes into place and there's no impact at all.

Not good enough for me.

I love most of Shimaki Ako stuff and this was no exception. It is not her best work but still rather entertaining. The main female character can be overly naive in some parts of the story. I look forward to reading the remaining manga.

Typical shoujo romance…

but I kinda like the female character in it, although overall naïve (as usual) she is a bit pushy, doesn’t exactly wait for the guy to make first move and is aware of her insecure moments. Shimaki’s art is very nice and fleshy.

not my cup of tea.. this is more of an overly melodramatic shoujo manga that focuses on their stereotype love story than the gender bender aspect..
