In a country where women rule supreme lives a poor but happy boy named Albert. An excursion to the city turns dangerous when he and his friend are abducted by slave traders, and later purchased by a noblewoman's servant. If this wasn't crazy enough, it turns out Albert looks exactly like the noblewoman who purchased him. But she's no ordinary aristocrat. She's a princess! And he's to act as her double from today on!?

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 read more

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 read more

A really good manga. It doesn't have one leading outstanding aspect, but it's really solid on most aspects and I can't think of anything major I'd change about it.

I picked this up because I liked the setting and there were interesting elements in the synopsis (cross dressing plus pretend royalty), but I didn't expect that much. What I got though, really exceeded my expectations.

This is a story about identity, responsibility, resolve, discrimination, politics, and more.

Identity - usually for gender benders it's just about hiding their gender yet mostly being themselves, but shounen oujo is interesting because it also involves being someone else. It's not about read more

The manga series 'Shounen Oujo' left me a thirsty impression. At first, I thought this manga is just like other gender bender stories which two individuals are look alike, and later they will switch places, experience each other lives and realize how hard to live the life of other. But my prediction betrays me when the main character Albert reach the point of no return. It made me wonder how he will carry out the duties of Princess Alexia and how long he will be able to pretend as her. I also want to know how will Albert change the views of his country.
