In the former kingdom of Morrigan, countless lives were lost due to war and rebellion alike. When women usurped all positions of power, new laws dictated that only they could earn income and receive inheritances, while men lost the majority of their rights and were reduced to mere objects of scorn. Morrigan became a queendom wrapped in an illusory peace. Outside of the royal court, especially, the people continued to suffer; however, now the men were subjected to the worst of the pain and humiliation.

Albert is a young orphan living near Morrigan's harbor. One day, despite warnings from his guardian Martha, he and his friend Theodore head toward the town's center to observe preparations for the Queen's birthday festival. Unsurprisingly, as they are boys unaccompanied by an adult, they are captured by slave traders and immediately readied to be sold. An elegantly dressed man offers an exorbitant price in order to purchase them both—though he clearly displays a preference for Albert.

Introducing himself as Guy Schwarzwald, the man transports Albert and Theodore to a palace where they are to meet their new master. Albert is unsure what surprises him more—that he is now the property of Princess Alexia Lumiere, heir apparent to the throne, or that somehow she looks exactly like him!

Shounen Oujo began serialization in Sylph in March, 2011, after which it transferred to the Comic it magazine and continued to be serialized from 2015 to 2017. Comic it was discontinued in February, 2018, and since then, this series has been on indefinite hiatus. In December, 2018, the author Utako Yukihiro posted on Twitter that it has been difficult to get the serialization restarted, but she is hopeful that this title will return one day.

Shounen Oujo has been published in German as Mimic Royal Princess by Carlsen Manga since February 25, 2014.

Expecting the cliched "happily ever after"? Well this is far from it.

Things start off airy fairy but get to chapter 7 and BAM! it hits you on the real and darker side of the monarchical system.

In a women dominated society, meet your commoner boy who "coincidentally" is the splitting image of the princess. He is captured by slave traders but bought by the princess as her substitute. From then on, he learns about the princess' world (at first unwillingly) while the princess wants to learn about the outside world. THAT'S the airy fairy bit. After that, things hit you quickly and unexpectedly just when ...

At the first two chapters, I thought of Daughter of Evil- a vocaloid song. It is very good and I was suprise that it has a low ranking here in myanimelist. It probably isn't very popular but I urge you to read it.

The story wasn't that original but I still like it.

The art was very good, not the best but it was likable and I'm sure you won't hate it.

There were only a few characters at the first part( not sure about volume2). Sometimes I get confuse at albert and the princess because they look alike.

I enjoyed this series very much. Although it wasn't one ...

Spoiler free review!!
Hm... I find it a bit challenging to start writing a review of this work..
Even if I find it really good, impactful and lovely in many ways.. Is it ok to reccomend an unfinished work, that will probably never have a conclussion? 0~0

The magazine this manga was published on was descontinued in early 2018, and Shounen Oujo hasn't been updated since 2017. It hasn't been axed perse.. But I do imagine that re-starting it's serialization would be a challeging, and apparently in late 2018 the author did express interesting in restarting it!! But, well, it has been some time since then, hasn't it. ...
