Uwasa no Midori-kun! is a great Shoujo, Sports, Gender Bender, Romance that should not be overlooked, due to its hilarious comedy and heated romance. Though it would have been better if the sports gender bender aspect were more realistic (like the movie ‘She’s the Man’), rather than your typical shoujo romance.

I strongly encourage everyone to read till the end as the ending. At the end it really shows how much love is read more

The revenge of the heroines is the common denominator. Also, both heroines joined the same league as the guy they are wishing to cast their revenge on. They are both determined to overthrow their former love because of the misery they caused them. And along the way, they'll meet colorful characters that will brighten up their gloomy facade - who knows if these characters will help them exact their vengeances?
A girl in both manga disguises to be a guy and goes to a guys' school involving in sports. Not only that, her roommate knows about her identity.
