Taiga Hirasawa has always longed to be a hero like in the movies, but he has never known who would play the heroine's role. On his first day of high school, he sets eyes on "Maria," the star of the drama club. Graceful, with an air of ambivalence, Maria is the apple of everyone's eyes. Taiga is quick to confess, only to find out that Maria's real name is Yuu Arima, a very much male classmate.

However, Taiga is drawn to Arima's volatile personality, belying a past that haunts them to this very day. Regardless of gender, Taiga nevertheless wants to learn who the true "Arima" is.

[Written by MAL Rewrite]


Boy Meets Maria was published in Spanish by Milky Way Ediciones on September 29, 2020; and in English by Seven Seas Entertainment on October 26, 2021.

When I found this manga first time, I didn't know what expectations I had but, I have to say that it made me feel very strong emotions, to the point of almost reaching tears.

One of my favorite parts of this manga is that, even at the end, we don't truly know Arima's gender identity and neither does he (I am using he/him pronouns because that is what is used in the manga), and that is totally fine! Although he is ...

Woweeee. “Boy Meets Maria” is a tactile and active experience. The art has this kinetically powered crunch to it – it’s radiant and coveys so much motion. While the story deals in dark themes, it somehow manages to keep itself feeling light and pure. A problem I have found with other manga with drama as a central premise is that they tend to go “black hole”: all characters are birthed from tragedy. I was somewhat worried at the beginning of the story when the black haired MC’s superficiality was explained via his less than stellar parental relationship. It felt unnecessary at the time, primarily because ...
