Mizuho can't believe his ears when Grandpa's will is read out. Grandpa's final wish is for Mizuho to attend the same academy as Mizuho's mother. The catch is it's an all-girls school. With the help of friend Mariya however, he gets a makeover good enough to fool everyone at the academy.

Pleasantly surprised. That is how I felt after watching this series. Unlike many of the other anime series I've watched, I actually started this one with a negative preconception, a misconception that is. After reading the story synopsis, I automatically thought the show was going to be dull. However, to be ever so cliche, I will say that the saying is true: you can't judge a book by its cover. In any case, I watched the first few episodes anyways out of curiousity, and I am happy I did.

Let's begin with the story. If you've read the synopsis, it read more

Otome wa Boku ni Koishiteru,

Hmm, the story lacked quite a bit, being sent to a all girl's highschool due to his grandfather's will? What's in it for the main character? The storyline basis lacks in detail and does not give enough information, but through witty plot's and lots of cross-dressing this piece makes you quickly forget what the storyline even is.

The art of course was amazing.

Soundtrack fit the lalala atmosphere perfectly and the character voices were nothing but exquisite.

'Otome wa Boku ni Koishiteru' is a unique anime in that it combines several themes that you think wouldn't work in a million years. A guy masquerading around an all-girls school in a girl uniform (inflatable pair of breasts included), a subtle haremesque Yuri and not so Yuri romance theme and last but not least - a bit of slice of life drama supplemented by brief and witty comedy.

What's even more unique is that this combination works very well in this anime. I initially had low expectations and let's face it - the plot sounds corny. Once you start watching this series however, everything read more

I just finished watching Otome wa Boku Koishiteru and I find it very good from the start till the last episode. =)

It's categorized as a "Shoujo Ai" but since the main character is actually a boy, I consider it more like a super mass harem with an utmost gentle touch.

It has a very creative plot, it's really funny at times, specially when the main character and his friends avoid being busted with their secret, and each episode turns out quite well. I recommend it to those who are not into pure girl to girl, Shoujo Ai.

I like Shoujou Ai's because it's all girls, but for read more

Anime: Maria†Holic
The main characters cross-dress into this all-girl school for the apparently same reason (which I will not reveal since some might consider this a sppoiler -.-''). Even though the genre of these series don't really match, there were a lot of things that were particularly similar. For example, there's a ''Mariya'' in both series o.O
Not only that, I feel that the story lacked something... in both series

Otome might be a bit more... shoujo than maria+holic, but they are mainly the same: it follows the life of several girls and one boy.

Anime: Maria-sama ga Miteru
Otome wa Boku ni Koishiteru is a little less dramatic and a little more humorous than Maria-sama ga Miteru, but they both have the older-sister/younger-sister catholic school relationship theme.

Anime: Princess Princess
There is always hilarious events coming along with cross-dressing, especially when boys cross-dress! In both series there are these handsome boys, who are forced to cross-dress either because of the long traditions of the school, or because of their grandfather's will. In either way, there are deffinitely hilarious moment and unexpected situations - for one thing, how come Mizuho doesn't like being in an all-girls school when he's a boy? Despite all the similarities, while Kouno and Yuujiro from Princess Princess want to escape from being mistaken for girls, Mizuho from Otome wa Boku ni Koishiteru absolutely doesn't want to be discovered, afraid of the  read more

Anime: Kämpfer
They both involve a gender-bended main character winding up in yuri-ish complications. The difference is that Otome is more of the otome/nice lady type while Kampfer is more of an action type.

Anime: I My Me! Strawberry Eggs
both with boys that have been either forced or persuaded into cross dressing. The major differences in this one he is put in an all girls school because of his grandpas will and is a student. Besides that theyre pretty similar
