    I remember I read this because I loved Shimaki's art style, but the story itself is pretty generic.

    An einer Jungenschule mal die Fliege an der Wand sein? Wäre manchmal schon cool!Die Mutter wird leider nur als Drache dargestellt, die ihre Tochter als Junge an die Eliteschule schickt, weil der Sohn sich verdrückt hat.Und dann natürlich mit dem Schwarm das Zimmer teilen, das schreit nach Romantik!Leider ist der Stil nicht so schön...und der Typ ist mir manchmal zu bestimmend. Auch wenn er das vielleicht anders meint, es macht ihn in dem Moment unsympatisch

    see full review @ Katie's CornerToday I have a very nice story, which I found by pure chance and enjoyed it to my heart’s content. It is a bit similar to Mi-Ri Hwang’s Idol Shopping. No, no, no fighting here, or as much fighting. It’s similar only in one thing the twin sister is sent to her twin brother’s all boy’s school, because he somehow can’t attend it. Here the similarity ends and I won’t be back to comparing it to anything else. The story is fast paced and well, it’s fabulous. I couldn’t help myself laugh out loud on all the things that happen between Momoko and Itou. They’re a great couple and I guess I enjoyed the story partly because they make such a great couple. Akira, that’s Momoko’s brother is also a fan character. The guy cracked me up; on how he came back to school because tat way he would be more respected. Another character is the “gay guy”. Sorry, forgot his name. He’s not really gay, but he did start off by first liking Itou, and in the need he fell in love with Momoko. Though in the last chapter there’s something shady going between him and Akira, though it’s only one sided.Overall, this story is great and leaves you with great feelings after finishing it. You may not remember minor details, but you’ll definitely have this feeling of happiness after you finish it, and even some time after it. I believe everyone will enjoy this story and will laugh a lot throughout it. Shortly saying it’s fun, fast paced, has great character development and also relationship development. If I’m not mistaken Momoko & Itou go all the way, and that’s another thing why I love this story too. It has everything in it. There are only 16 chapters but they tell us a lot, and even if you think that it’s not enough.I hope you will enjoy this manga to its fullest. Don’t forget to share your thoughts below! Stay tuned for more reviews as well as promos. Don’t miss your next favourite book o manga! Happy reading!XOXOKatie

    Well I expected something better than this one. Yes, it was good, well OK it had some lovely moments, but the pacing just sucked.Not only that but the characters weren't always the best. Our MC is quite an idiot, acts weird, and really who the hell can't see that this is a girl 100%. Then we have the male character (the roommate and love interest, yes, love interest), who at first hates the girl, but then suddenly loves her and suddenly wants to protect her? Wait what? He met her when she was still with long hair, hated her (or at least it seemed so), then when she turns up at his school as boy he is still annoyed, then finds out about her being a girl (the girl) he suddenly likes her or something? The mother was also a point of annoyance. Really, you act like this towards your daughter? You just corner her in your house and then cut off her hair and drag her off to an all-male school because your perfect little son didn't get home and has run away? What the hell is wrong with you. It is clear who your favourite kid is. Definitely not the girl at least.The pacing was already horrible, the secret is out in the first chapter, and by chapter 3 our MC is asking to be the sex slave of the male character + is instantly infatuated with him...... By chapter 4 it felt like they were practically married. By chapter 4 it felt like they were practically married. Seriously, I believe all this just takes place in like a few weeks time, maybe even less. :|I also hate the love rival/rival. I am not sure if I will continue with this one. On the one hand I want to know how the relationship will go, but on the other hand.... no thank you. Maybe when I have an off day I will be reading this one again.Review first posted at

    So I complained to myself in some old PowerPoint about how, although at times kinda sweet and kinda cute, the leading couple of this manga spend about 75% of it (the remaining 25% being getting together) trying to have decent alone time for sex. For this reason I've put this on my 'Read Too Young' shelf, because at the time I thought it was boring. I didn't really get that this is the point of this kind of manga.Outside of sexy times, the plot is the same cycle as any old gender bender smutty shojo. There are all the usual cliches. He accidentally gropes her. He discovers she's a girl. She nearly gets raped. Boyfriend rescues her. She makes friends with the guy that nearly raped her. Boyfriend somehow does not complain. She gets bullied. Boyfriend rescues her. She gets blackmailed. Boyfriend rescues her. She starts failing tests. Boyfriend tutors/rescues her. She gets kicked out of the school. Boyfriend rescues her.This manga portrays everybody but Itou in a bad light. Momoko is stupid, slow, defenceless, gullible, simple-minded and spineless. Akira is a coward. Kawashima is first a rapist, then a raging totally-out-there caricature of a bisexual. Saeki is a 'prince' stereotype that pouts a lot and acts noble, and then takes his first shot at getting in Momoko's pants.The only good thing about this manga is the laugh-out-loud moment when Itou and Saeki have a good old snog. And accordingly, that's all I remember to distinguish it from all the other old gender bender smutty shojos.

    I really enjoyed this gender-bender, it really reminded me of the plot of "She's the Man"..!When Momoko's twin brother Akira disappears, ran off to pursue his dream of becoming a photographer, right before he entered his high-class all-boys school changes her life. Their mother goes berserk, cuts off Momoko's hair and she her in Akira's place threatening her not to expose herself as a girl.Momoko has to fool her roommate and the other boys in the school into thinking she's a guy. Itou her roommate finds out she's a girl and basically blackmails her falling in love with her at the same time, while she does the same....This manga is great and enjoyable to read!!!

    This here is a review for the overall series.I guess it was okay. The relationship between the two main characters were average I guess. The beginning, middle and end were nothing really new or special and the art was amazing either.The plot was original in a way that worked but not as successful as I think that author would want it to be...SO, yeah... Three stars.For being average, not awesome but not bad either.

    This was a meh type of manga to me. I wasn't really impressed with the plot, and felt that it was to much like Hana Kimi for my test.The gender bender factor was a comical flavor to the series. There were a lot of I want to shake you, errors in common sense. The artstyle was nice though it could have presented much better. For example the scenery could have been more detail.

    Seit langem habe ich mal wieder meine alten Mangas rausgekramt und obwohl ich die Geschichte nett fand und gut gezeichnet, sind einfach die dargestellten Beziehungen in vielen Mangas nicht mehr mein Fall. Die Frauen sind zu schwach und die Männer zu große Arschlöcher. ;)

    (This is why I can't read my YA books at full speed) I read too many mangas, to be honest.

    It was actually nice. Itou turned out to be an excellent guy.

    Well this had potential, however it's a lil slow and predictable.

    The art wasn't the best and the heroine was really annoying at times. The series did have some parts that made me laugh or sigh with happiness so it kept my interest enough to finish it. 3 Stars :)
