There is a reason why I rated this manga somewhat low but I will get to that towards the end of this review. The story was somewhat interesting but been there, seen that. Nothing special. The art was good, again, nothing special. Definitely not the best artwork I've seen.
The characters, oh, this is why I rated this manga low. The protagonist, she has admirable traits I will say, like determination and kindness. But that damn kim do-jin asshole, I hope he goes to fucking hell! He is by far the worst manga character I've come across. He's mean, a bully, arrogant, rude, and has no read more

I like how this manhua not only involves romance, but also has a Cinderella-like twist to it. I haven't finished the series, but I'm a sucker for the serious, emotional, dark haired guy, so I have high hopes of who she'll end up with. HOWEVER. What bothers me about this story is the main character's naivety and obliviousness. SPOILERS. Her boyfriend cheats on her by kissing another girl, then is really rude to her, yet she stays with him and is in a happy daze about how much she 'loves' him. Then, when he catches her with the same girl, she still isn't sure whether read more

Okkkayyy well im half hearted on this one becuz I do really like it but.... I have to admit at times it does really piss me off.... Cuz... 1. IM So SICK of the whole idea of magic having all these loop holes and problem. -_- If there's some weird ass potion out there that... Actually made you beautiful you should just fucking stay that way and not have to change back. Of course under these circumstances she had to be able to change back cuz her family wouldn't recognize her but still. I do actually really like the main girl Go Mioh she's got read more

Manga: Romantic Beauty
Similar stories. Girl is ugly and bullied by everyone. So she wants to become pretty for the guy she likes- though it is done by magic in Ugly Duckling to Swan.

Manga: Naisho no Jikan
The main character is "ugly" but somehow turn"beautiful" but in naisho no jikan they don't use magic

Manga: Bijin Kakumei
The plot is almost the same. It's about a girl who at first isn't so pretty at first but later turns into a beautiful girl. She's bullied about how she looks by a guy and when she soon becomes beautiful she seek revenge against the guy that bullied her. Bijin kakumei is more of a cute kind of manga while ugly duckling to swan is more of comedy.

Manga: My Lovable Fatty
In both there's a fatty who transforms into a beauty using magic, it's both shoujo and has somewhat of a similar plot about the girls', they both love the school's idol (well that's what happens at first)
