One day, on a whim, 20-year-old Minato dresses up in her friend's cute high school uniform and goes out briefly into the city. To her horror, she ends up running into her stepbrother, Tooru, who is actually only months younger than her. Since he's cute, and a notorious player, Minato has had to deal with constant jealousy and suspicion from other girls all through their school days.
Amazingly, she manages to convince Tooru that she's actually someone who just happens to look a lot like his sister. He is so convinced that he starts trying to date her and, for various reasons, she goes along with it. What started as a simple joke is now evolving into the biggest lie Minato has ever told!
This manga was great until it metamorphosed into your average shoujo midway... So, the first two volumes are a 9, for me... but then it started melting into nothing.
So, this is one of those stories I would recommend start to read, but the moment you get annoy with it, stop and pretend that it finished right there as an open ending, where you can choose what happens next.
The last chapter is one of the most cringe situations I have ever read... it wasted the whole story away. Read it at your own risk.
This manga I read it along it was being published, so
it took a lot of time. The first few chapters I read them many times, because the story was very believable... the characters were very human and that is so difficult to find in manga/anime that whenever I find those gems, I cling to them. But I don't know if it was the editorial or the author lost it along the way... because it became a plane boring cliché shoujo little by little.
This Manga kinda Annoyed me. It's about a girl who has a step brother and she fools him into thinking she is a look alike of his sister and starts dating him. If you're thinking "how stupid would you have to be to believe that?" Well in this manga there is a lot of lack in common sense. The main character's are too hard to relate to. They are in their 20's but yet don't seem to have the experience and common knowledge of a 20 something.The main girl doesn't get into funny predicaments or thinks up crazy schemes. She just continues to lead on
her brother despite how much feelings he has for her "other" self. She never fesses up to him about who she is. By the 15th Chapter I couldn't read anymore. I felt like "why is she even doing this in the first place?" It just seemed cruel and selfish to me with no resolution or turn of events in site.
Some may like this, it's not terrible, it did perk my interest but in the end I just felt lead on like the brother in the story...
I personally started this manga because I was tired of drama, this manga made me literally fall on the floor.
Plot: A 20 years-old girl goes in town dressed with her best friend's high school uniform and accidentally bumps into her step-brother. He doesn't recognize her and the two of them started talking, the girl pretending to be someone else.
Characters: The main character is the best. She is hilarious, seriously, you'll love her.
The plot may not be too original, but the main character makes it very good. The manga may look stupid for some of you but I personally enjoyed it. You should totally
give it a try.
If you like deep psychology stories that take their time to show the characters' deeper layers, read this one. Kind of like Cheese in the Trap, at least one character is an intriguing mystery to you and you struggle to guess what that person will do next---All that on top of the standard step sibling forbidden love plus love triangles. Romance with deep characters and plot!!! yeah!
The downside is that the art is unique----not the standard pretty boy art that seem to be standard for shoujo's. The Mangaka is mostly a shounen artist, so the same characters who normally would be
shirt-tearingly hot in the regular shoujo mangaka's work, umm, need some getting used to. But don't let the art stop you from reading this awesome story.
