Welcome to Momoko's waking nightmare. Things were settled. They were! She was SUPPOSED to have gone to a normal school, made normal friends, and led a blissfully normal life. But the universe is just cruelly, irredeemably, monstrously unfair, so instead she found herself thrown out of home, stuck in an all-boys boarding school with a roommate she hates, cursed with a hideous haircut and wearing clothes which, to be frank, she wouldn't be seen dead in.

And the only thing worse than her current situation is the one that she'll be in if anyone ever realizes that she is, in fact, a girl. Everything is wrong! Everything! Particularly the fact that, even though she's surrounded by amazingly gorgeous guys, her chances of romance are less than zero. But with life this complicated, something is bound to give. In fact, it just did. Damn.

The story line is original, and well thought out. While there has been other story's about Girls trapped in an all boys boarding school, I do not believe the cause of that has ever been done before. To be honest the couple is just a little too perfect, and the author could have added a bit more conflict on Kunio's part. All the conflict in the story seems to be Solly focused around Momoko.

The characters have great depth to them. Momoko is your average girlie-girl, who loves shopping, hanging out with her friends, and talking about boys, but by the end of the Manga ...

Mixed Feelings
Frankly, when I get to reading a shoujo manga I don't really expect depth of story and/or character, and those low expectations are rarely wrong. It's the same with this particular manga. The plot of a girl entering an all-boys school pretending to be a boy is nothing new. The fact that she is a rather complacent, passive character opposed to a strong, protective male lead is also nothing new. Basically, Boku ni Natta Watashi offers nothing new. There are hints of examining the established gender roles, but the mangaka does not go into it deeper - she keeps it superficial - as if all ...

Boku ni Natta Watashi is funny and well drawn but that's about as far as it goes. Momoke is naive and very stupid, to the point of being embarrassing. She has no backbone but is very stubborn and of course is too nice for her own good. Itou is the perfect man(that's right, not one single flaw), which of course makes him actually boring and gives you a tooth ache after a while.
The whole series makes you roll your eyes and shake your head. Nothing about this series is really possible and it's mostly just ridiculous. I'd never read this manga again ...
