    more from this reviewer

    Mizuki has always wanted to see her favorite high jumper jump in

    Mizuki has always wanted to see her favorite high jumper jump in person and that is exactly what she is going to do. She devised a plan to convince her parents to allow her to go to school in Japan. However, she leaves out the part about it being an all boys school. She chops off all of her long hair and pretends to be a boy so that she can get close to Sano. Turns out that they will get even closer than she expected when she finds out that they not only have classes together but they are roommates as well!

    I thought that this was a very cute manga. There is no crazy bad guys or any plot twists. Just a funny story about a girl pretending to be a guy to get close to her idol. Sano of course finds out that his roommate is a girl but plays along for her sake, pretending that he is clueless. Meanwhile, Mizuki thinks that she has everyone fooled and in some cases she does. There is a boy named Nakatsu in her school who is fighting his attraction to Mizuki and he is freaking out over it. He's not gay and tries to justify some of his actions with Mizuki. Poor guy has no idea that he really isn't gay, Mizuki is actually a girl.

    I thought the whole book was funny.

    Good start

    Mizuki enrolls in an all boys school to meet Izumi Sano. There's a problem though: Mizuki's a girl. First watched the show which is pretty good with interesting characters and has its share of serious and hilarious moments. With the first volume, it seemed to go by quick. I still liked the book. Good start.

    It's a must read!

    Hana-Kimi is a hilarious manga that I recommend shojo fans to read. It has a good plot, but... it's not probable. Oh well... That's what I like about it!^-^**

    Recomendation--->BUY the book...

    The first thing anyone would notice in Hana-Kimi, is...ITS ALL BEEN DONE BEFORE. But wait! Dont let that scare you away from this book. It may strongly remind you of other mangas such as 'Girl Got Game or Kill Me Kiss Me,' but it's not at all completely alike. In fact, the fresh backround and characters tend to make this Manag quite enjoyable. Cliche's are normal in this book, but thats what makes it humorous. Once you get past the normal repeats of crossdressing-in-a-boy-school manga, you deffinately warm up to it. I recomend this book for a good laugh and space on the shelves.

    Excellently written

    This book was my second manga. i'm new to it. i really enjoyed a new twist in the story. some of it was fore-shadowed without the explanation of how Izumi found out that she was a girl. it would have been better written had it not included the two extra stories at the back. when it comes out read the second book. hope you enjoy!

    Great for the non elitist

    This is such a great story, a must read for any shojo freak! Don't let the elitist opinions scare you away from this series (we all know how accurate scanlations and Chinese versions can be, right?). Pick it up and make your own opinon on what a fantastic story this is!

    Cursed Viz...

    To be perfectly honest, I read the Chinese Version and a Few Scanlations of the Japanese Versions and it's better then what Viz has done. Hanazakari no Kimitachi e (Hana-kimi) has been ripped here and there by VIZ! They need to do a better job at translation... Hana-kimi is a great story and I hope you enjoy this debased version. If you really want to get a better version I suggest you learn Chinese or Japanese. But Anyway... I love Sano~
