Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Taniguchi (Call Me Princess) sets this gender-bending story in Gemstone, a medieval fairy tale land with fairy-type creatures called "angel birds," knights, goblins and royal families. Twin male princes, Matthew and Lawrence, lived a normal life until their mother's tragic death, which made their father, the King of Gemstone, believe an ancient prophecy was put into motion. The king thought the only way for his boys to be spared from this curse was to raise one of them as a princess. So Lawrence was raised and led a carefree life as Princess Lori. When puberty strikes, his real troubles begin. Will he continue to live the life of a princess or risk it all, including the terrible prophecy, for his chance at love and happiness? Princesses from neighboring castles come and throw themselves at handsome Prince Matthew, hoping to be his bride, as poor Lori watches. Meanwhile, Lori's one true love, his best friend Jenny, doesn't even know Lori's real identity. Jenny feels guilty because she has a strange attraction to Lori but isn't really sure why. And Lori is just plain miserable. But what good fairy tale doesn't have a little bit of angst, heartache and despair in it? It's fun to note Taniguchi's love of teen melodrama in this volume: one member of the supporting cast is named Brandon Walsh, a name shared by the male twin in Beverly Hills 90210. This is an all-ages, whimsical, mostly happily-ever-after-type manga. (June) Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
Library Journal
Fifteen years before the opening of this shojo (girls') manga fantasy, the King of Gemstone was given a prophecy by an angel bird that his kingdom would be aided during coming misfortune if one of his twin sons were raised as a girl. So Prince Lawrence became Princess Lori, setting up a comedy of gender-bending rivaling Rumiko Takahashi's Ranma 1/2. The thief, Brandon, suspects that something is not right in the king's family, but he decides that the twins must both be girls and falls in love with Lori's brother, the gorgeous Prince Matthew. Lori, who cannot reveal that he's a boy, fends off male suitors while pining for friend Jenny Nelson, while Jenny wishes there were a man just like Lori. Unfortunately, this situation is left partly unresolved, and no further volumes are forthcoming. Taniguchi's artwork is detailed, attractive, and expressionistic in the shojo style, and little angel bird Emma keeps the cuteness factor high. This volume includes two unrelated stories, as well as the title tale; both are worthwhile fantasies, one featuring minor nudity. Recommended for larger collections, for teens and adult manga fans.

    Really Cute

    This manga is a really cute one. it's not one of my ,'Oh my Gah you need to get this it's so great' mangas, but it is a nice one to have. Cute story, cute art and it's a manga that puts a smile on my face when I read it.
