Tomo Aizawa and Junichirou "Jun" Kubota are the tightest bros you would ever see. They roughhouse and spar, but through thick and thin, they have got each other's back. Yet, there is just one small problem: Tomo is in love with Jun!

Since she was young, tomboyish Tomo has been just another one of the guys; due to his extreme muscle-brained nature, Jun does not notice any of her advances—not even when she explicitly confesses. To add insult to injury, for the longest time, he did not even realize that she was a girl. Will Tomo ever be able to catch Jun's eye and escape the infamous bro zone?

[Written by MAL Rewrite]


Tomo-chan wa Onnanoko! was published in English as Tomo-chan Is a Girl! by Seven Seas Entertainment from September 11, 2018 to September 22, 2020, and as omnibus volumes since December 5, 2023.

With massive chapter count of 953, Tomo-chan might seem like an unconquerable mountain to those who don't know what the catch here is, but the truth is almost the polar opposite. Tomo-chan falls under the definition of 'short but sweet' as its chapter count is almost equivalent to its total page count due to it being originally released in one-page-a-day format. The overall length is the one of four regular manga volumes (tho for some reason they were released in eight), and time-wise, most people should be able to read the entire series in 2-5 hours. A mountain it is not.

Mixed Feelings
A high school romCOM where the friends outshine the main pair.

Story: Generic school life events that follows and drags out the plot of what you'd come to expect for a high school romance.
Art: Solid and improves throughout the story, especially considering Tomo-chan was a daily release.
Characters: Main cast consists of a generic main couple, Tomo and Jun, overshadowed by their friends Carol and Misuzu. Side characters are mostly forgettable or adult versions of the main cast.
Enjoyment: It's a light read and has its comedic moments, but blue balls the reader when it comes to the romance and compensates by overusing some jokes.

Honestly I can't tell you how much I began to grow bored of this 4-koma 1 page comic after reading 435 chapters. All it's about is dimwitted lad called Jun who isn't just bothered by his childhood friend Tomos confession just because she ain't "girly enough" to make him self aware that she is in fact, the opposite sex. Literally gender labelling involved in this manga is just a joke. It's like I feel the characters surrounding Tomo just can't accept for who she is. I have to give credit tho that she does stand up for herself whenever any character pisses her off.
