Boku ni Natta Watashi

Boku ni Natta Watashi

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.

What should I say If I want you to believe that you'd like one manga If you read another one? I guess, that the main reason is that they both are gender bender mangas about girls in schools for boys only. Funny characters and funny plots are two similarities that unite Hana-Kimi and Boku ni Natta Watashi.

Both series have the "gender bender" theme, albeit presented in different ways. Also, both are romantic comedies with school and slice of life themes.

Comedic aspects is why I would recommend it. Both are hilarious and bring a smile to your face. Both at times can be serious and they both make your really care about the characters. Both are really fun reads.

If you liked Hana-Kimi, you're also likely to enjoy Absolute Boyfriend. These two series are both romance-based shoujo, with elements of school life as a strong contextualising component in both - especially when anchoring the conflicts and intrigues of the romantic journeys. Tones of comedy and drama are also common to both.

Where Hana-Kimi has gender-bending between the two central characters as the main point of friction for the story, Absolute Boyfriend has the android as the main love interest. In this way, both are shoujo romances with hefty, fresh twists that challenge both sexuality and identity for teenage high school students in their disctinct ways.

This recommendation works both ways, because the thematic interplay is so keenly fresh and disctinct between both, that their individuality and their parallels would just as easily travel in either direction for these titles.
