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 of delinquents!

Hinako takes her twin brother Hikaru’s place at Shishiku Academy for boys. Fights break out every day, but there are also lots of heart-palpitating events with the boys that she never expected! And as the battle to be the boss of the school rages on, will Hikaru make it to the top?

Rating: 4 stars

Review: Another excellent installment to a fantastic series! Fans of anime will appreciate the obligatory beach and school sports festival “episodes”. There’s also a long lost brother, and one of Hikaru/Hinako’s friends will leave the school – and the country! – forever.

I love the sort of reverse harem feel if this manga. Hikaru/Hinako’s relationships with her classmates are fun to see, and I love the relationship with her big brother she didnt know existed. Her growing relationship with her twins is also fun to watch blossom. The obligatory beach and sports day episodes are of course extra exciting as this is a gender-bending manga. Will her friends find out that shes secretly a girl?! Read the manga to find out. 😉
