Summary: Beautiful boy rebels using their fists to fall in love!

Hinako thought she didn’t have any family, but on the day she starts high school, her twin brother Hikaru suddenly appears and tricks her into taking his place. But the new school Hinako attends in his stead is beyond unusual. Now she must fight her way to the top of Shishiku Academy, an all-boys school full of delinquents!

Review: AHHHH you guys! I love this. She switches places with her twin brother and he attends her all girls school while she attends his all boys school for delinquents. If you’ve followed my reviews at all you know I love me a good woman disguised as a man story, and this one is great! You’ve got your childhood friend/sweetheart who knows her true identity, your best friend who doesn’t know she’s actually a girl but is weirdly attracted to her anyway, your last minute swaps with her twin to prove she’s AHHHH you guys!

I love how strong Hinako is, and how loyal and determined to protect those weaker than her she is. I want to be her bestest best friend. 🙂 I also really love the art style in this manga. Now gimme then next one RIGHT NOW!!
