Boku ni Natta Watashi (I Became a Boy) is all about Momoko Takanashi's adventures inside the all-boy's school and dormitory as she struggles to live a life as a boy without getting caught and trying to find love in the form of her roommate, Itou Kunio.
This happened all because Momoko's twin brother ran away to pursue his dream of becoming a photographer and leaving them nothing but a note. Momoko is your average girl, with marks not above average and is rather pretty clumsy, or to put it densely, stupid. Rooming with the popular and gorgeous Itou Kaunio, Momoko lives up to be the boy who passed the exams and stop herself from falling inlove.
The story is pretty simple and the art is very well done. The setting is paced just right, with the proper humour and the proper get-to-know the characters which is quite important in any story. It's not your usual falling in love out of the blue kind of shoujo manga, but it will not make you wonder how they managed to fall in love, have conflicts, solve them, and fall more in love.
Overall, I give this a 9/10 having caught my attention with the art and how the main characters are pretty much how they should really be. read more
