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! Everything! 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 is bound to give. In fact, it just did. Damn.

Boku ni Natta Watashi is funny and well drawn but that's about as far as it goes. Momoke is naive and very stupid, to the point of being embarrassing. She has no backbone but is very stubborn and of course is too nice for her own good. Itou is the perfect man(that's right, not one single flaw), which of course makes him actually boring and gives you a tooth ache after a while.
The whole series makes you roll your eyes and shake your head. Nothing about this series is really possible and it's mostly just ridiculous. I'd never read this manga again read more

The story line is original, and well thought out. While there has been other story's about Girls trapped in an all boys boarding school, I do not believe the cause of that has ever been done before. To be honest the couple is just a little too perfect, and the author could have added a bit more conflict on Kunio's part. All the conflict in the story seems to be Solly focused around Momoko.

The characters have great depth to them. Momoko is your average girlie-girl, who loves shopping, hanging out with her friends, and talking about boys, but by the end of the Manga read more

Frankly, when I get to reading a shoujo manga I don't really expect depth of story and/or character, and those low expectations are rarely wrong. It's the same with this particular manga. The plot of a girl entering an all-boys school pretending to be a boy is nothing new. The fact that she is a rather complacent, passive character opposed to a strong, protective male lead is also nothing new. Basically, Boku ni Natta Watashi offers nothing new. There are hints of examining the established gender roles, but the mangaka does not go into it deeper - she keeps it superficial - as if all read more

I'm not probably the right person to write a review as I read only three chapters, but at the same time I do not intend to read any further. Why only three chapters? I almost stopped reading after the second chapter after a comment "can I be your sex slave" but my curiosity got the better of me and continued on reading.

I love benging genders, shojo, harem etc. and my inner fan girl squels in pleasure when I can find all these themes in the same story. But this one? Don't bother. Yes, the art is nice and I like everything else except the plot. read more

Manga: Power!!
This one's generally the same. I mean the basic plot is. A girl is forced by her insane father to join her high school's men basketball team, which means not only living in the same dorm as all of her teammates but even having to give up her high school life as a girl and disguising herself as a boy...

Manga: Ouran Koukou Host Club
It's boths a gender bender anime, where the both girls have to hide their gender in school
for some purpose that is not theirs and kind off against their own will at the start.

Manga: Idol Shopping
In both stories the sister takes her brother's place at his school disguised as a boy and ends up falling in love with a classmate. If you liked Boku ni Natta Watashi you'll most likely enjoy this. (if you can stand the artwork that is)
