Both of these mangas are about a girl who disguises herself as a guy for personal reasons. Both of the girls fall in love with a boy who does sports. They both have their funny moments and serious moments and they're both awesome.
if you enjoyed the gender-bending, dorm life genre of hana kimi (or vice-versa); you'll surely love the other! both have sports as a theme (although one is more prominent than the other) and it's definitely SHOUJO!
these two mangas have practically the same essence, it's so hard not to compare each to the other!
while there may be some differences in their plot line, when it comes right down to it, both have a way of satisfying your inner Shoujo-seeking self!
When I first read Girl got game i though 'Hana-kimi no. 2'.
The story is different, but the idea's resemble each other a lot. Both story's have a girl cross-dressing as a guy, being roommates with the guy she loves, and both girls like sports.
If you like one, you'll like the other, because it's the same idea but with another storyline and different characters.
This has the concept of gender bender. During their time of gender bender, they run into strange conflicts. Within those conflicts, love is developed. It makes the manga more absorbing.
Haruna has never been feminine; she was the star pitcher of the softball team in middle school and didn't focus on relationship, but now that she's in high school she has a new goal: to have a shoujo manga-style relationship. While Haruna tries to be attractive and get a boyfriend, she has no idea how to accomplish her goal; and thus, she recruits the reluctant Yoh as her coach. Yoh is very attractive and dislikes women and the problems they cause, but is impressed by Haruna's determination and agrees upon one condition: she promises not to fall in love with him. Thus begins the crazy relationships of Haruna, Yoh and their friends as they all struggle to find themselves and their true loves.
In both series, the girl dreams of getting a boyfriend in high school, but finds obstacles in her way. Both girls a tomboys who want the attention of a guy they can't get. If you liked one, you will like the other.
I think that these mangas are quite similar and the main female characters have quite a similar personality too. There's also a small sports theme running in both of them (though Girl Got Game is more of a sports manga than this is) and I think the art style is quite similar. The romantic progression is different but overall I think that these two mangas are definitely compatiable with one another.
When it comes to gender bender these titles take the win!
Very funny, romantic and awkward moments in between but with a special twist! they both have the same objective, trying to get the person they love closer to them by any means possible even if it means dressing and acting like the opposite sex.
Both Girl got game and Boku ni Natta Watashi are about a female who is forced by their parents to dress up as guy and attend an all guy school. In both of these mangas, the girls fall in love with their roommate, who helps them to keep thier gender a secret. Even the main characters in these two series are really similar.
