In the play of life, all Hikaru Takabayashi wanted was to be part of the scenery. Tormented by jealous schoolmates ever since she appeared in a famous commercial in grade-school, Hikaru transfers to a prestigious all-girls' academy where she hopes to settle down to a quiet life of anonymity. But when her new roommate turns out to be the super-popular TV idol Izumi Kido, Hikaru finds herself thrown smack in the spotlight's glare once more!

And as if living with a celebrity wasn't bad enough, Hikaru discovers that there's more to Izumi than her "good girl" image—she's a he! And this is only the first of Izumi's many dangerous secrets! Now Hikaru's the unwilling star player in a madcap tale of deception, abduction, humiliation and blackmail... you know—the usual romantic stuff.

Let me start off by saying that this is a very light hearted manga! I enjoyed it because it was a very chill read. This would be good to read after reading some intense manga for recuperation haha.

The plot overall is a typical shojo plot. Theres a girl and she falls in love etc etc but it doesn't drag like a regular shojo manga normally does, which was extremely refreshing; hence why I said it's a very chill read. The story line progresses pretty smoothly and it was cute overall. The manga doesn't really have a lot of depth and therefore goes by quickly. ...

I just finished reading so I am still geeked about this one. Here goes!
This is now my new favorite manga. I read the first chapter online and was so hooked that i bought the rest of the volumes.

The author allows the love between the two main characters to grow, develop, become jealous, and flicker throughout the series. I loved how thoughful the author was to not make the romance of high school kids too adult. Each volume leads to the next so ...

Love, Love, Love!

This was an awesome manga to read! I honestly read it when I had time in a few days.

A romantic love triangle between a male teacher, a female student, and a female idol, who is actually a guy.

There are some interesting plot twists that I honestly didn't expect. (With the teacher and student.)

I don't reallly wanna reveal all even though I want to, so your mission is to go on ahead and start reading this manga right now. You'll be hook since chapter one, I promise you won't regret it!!!!
