It's a simple manga, like everything that Go Ikeyamada writes. Very fun to read, full of tropes of manga and romance in general. I like the main characters and the romance is very simple, so if that's what you looking for, go for it. Full of nerd stuff like everything that the author usually does. Very fun to read, the characters are funny and you usually cheer for them.
Though, if you dont like cliched stuff, I suggest you to not read anything from Go Ikeyamada.
Her art its waaay too ....Idk how to explain, its too much sometimes, but its cute if you like it. read more

Kobayashi ga Kawai sugite Tsurai!! or SO CUTE IT HURTS or just SO CUTE!! is a very popular shoujo manga, we met eyes and I decided why shouldn't I read this. not too surprising but not that bad.

The story is quite original and cool, we have 2 twins of different genders and they decide they should swap schools for a week. Each crossdresses and tests this idea out, they both fall in love. Shoujo shit, not many generic stuff like rivals, etc, just nice. 8/10.

Art, the art style is nice and the quality alright. Nothing too wrong with it, 7/10

Characters, 7/10. Not the worst but read more

Kobayashi ga Kawai Sugite Tsurai, or So Cute it Hurts, may not sound interesting from the given desciption of twins switching places. Mitsuru, the boy twin, goes to his sister's co-ed school, while Megumu, the girl twin goes to Mitsuru's all boys school, where they both run into "the ones."

Personally, I didn't know what to think of this manga, until I read it. I found the story very enjoyable to the point where I was laughing and getting the great heart throbbing feeling I love getting from shoujo manga and anime. The art is great and the comedic panels and the romantic scenes are very read more

If i have to choose 2 things to describe this manga, it will be cute and chessy. Just like the title "so cite it hurts" this manga is just so so so cute. The character blushes all the time and it makes me love it even more because it just so cute. But it also cheesy at the same time. There are lot of cheesy things happening in this manga which i almost cant handle. But i think the word "cheesy" is appropriate in every shoujo manga, so just enjoy it and love it. Because manga without something cheesy will be kinda boring.
