Mizuki Ashiya is a teen Japanese girl growing up in the USA. After seeing Japanese track star Izumi Sano on TV one day, she became instantly enamored with his grace and style, and became determined to find him and confess her love. She's able to transfer to his all-boys school by hiding her feminine identity, and finds herself as his roommate in the process. However, while the rest of her classmates simply suspect she's a very girly boy, Sano sees through her façade in time, and together they must try to keep Ashiya's true gender a secret. Now, Ashiya must not only try to confess to the man she loves, but also help him work through his personal issues and keep her secret safe from the school in the process!
Tsukushi Makino is an average girl who attends a not-so-average school. Populated by an elite and high-classed society of students, the school is also home to the F4 - the richest boys in school who dictate the lives of both the students and the teachers. One day, Tsukushi's friend accidentally falls and knocks over the F4's mighty leader, Domyouji Tsukasa - a boy famous not only for his money, but also for striking fear into any student who looks at him the wrong way. Domyouji doesn't take being knocked over lightly, and when Tsukushi sticks up for her friend the F4 declares war. With the whole school now against her, Tsukushi works hard to show everyone that she is a ‘weed' that will no longer be trodden upon!
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.
Hasukawa Kazuya has absolutely no luck. The woman he loves has just married his older brother, and in order to avoid the lovey dovey couple, Hasukawa decides to enter the dorm of a prestigious high school. However this dorm, named Greenwood , seems to be home to the school's strangest students and thanks to Hasukawa's bad luck he ends up as the roommate and neighbor of the three strangest students of all! It seems Hasukawa's dreams of a quiet life are all but doomed as he gets swept up in the antics of Greenwood 's residents!
Hana-Kimi and Here is Greenwood both have set-ups and eccentric casts of characters. Greenwood's storytelling has a more contemplative touch: The humor is often more subtle and the "romantic" bits are less squealy than those in Hana-Kimi. Both series have well-developed characters and (to my eye at least) solid artwork.
Hana Kimi and Idol Shopping are very similar because the two main girls go in to an all boy school pretending to be a boy and is later found out by someone and the plot also have two boys liking her. I love both mangas very much and I really recommend people to read it
Since nobody else has made any reccomendations, i thought i should... the girls in both of these manga must hide there true identity, even though Hana Kimi has a much lighter feel to it, Love in the Mask is also a really good manga, definetly more mature though.... i highly recommend them both, i cant wait to find out what happens next in Love in the Mask!
