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.

i was looking so hard for this manga and i finally found it, so when i started
reading it i was so hooked that i finished it in one day, i think that the reason
why i liked a lot this manga is because it's not too dramatic, the main character is also simple mind,funny and makes you like her because she's not annoying it's not one of that shoujo mangas where the main female it's stupid and foolish and have the dream of being at the top of the world,the main male it's full of pride but at the same time he is kind and caring. read more

Story: 8

The story ha snothing special about it. A typical manga about a student's life mixed up with attention from the media, jealous female students with raging hormones, a cousin who wants to be seen as an adult, and a guy who saves the day.Its another shoujo manga. But somehow, when i finished this manga, I wasn't really satisfied because, I wanted the story to continue, I fell in love with the overused plot and I just couldn't put the book down. Throughout the manga, the author has side notes,talking about her current addictions. Though there isn't any 'breaking the third wall' among the characters read more

This is a cute gender-bending manga set in the idol/entertainment world. Both of the main characters are very likable and supporting characters are abundant but easy to follow and keep track of.

I found that each volume moved well but always concluded on a good note so that you're not left with too much of a suspenseful cliff-hanger. The overall story follows Hikaru and Izumi's relationship as antagonists. They do eventually tolerate each other as well as become friends and ultimately realize their love for each other.

Izumi's boy/girl looks were very distinguishable. Reminded me of Yellow Belmont in Genesis Mospeada. Very convincing and very well read more

So, I won't bother writing a synopsis because 1) Duh it's already provided near the top of this page and 2) The tips and guidelines say not to XD

Okay, so starting off with the story, I rate it overall as a 9. I mean sure there have been countless of manga that have done the whole "boy cross-dressing as a girl to become famous then falls in love with the girl who discovers his secret" (e.g. Nousatsu Junkie) but from my perspective, Tenshi Ja Nai was able to turn a "cliche" into something (somewhat) original. The story was very cute. It was long enough read more
