So this masculine-looking chick named Kiri fell in love with her beautiful neighbor, a boy named Tohya. He's as pretty as she is handsome...a perfect 'princess' to her 'prince'! Unfortunately, that's a situation that makes neither of them happy. Kiri is constantly trying to appear more feminine and pretty so that she'll be worthy of Tohya's love. When her mother, who runs a modeling agency, contracts Tohya to work for a famous designer, Kiri insists on accompanying him to protect him from all the gay men who will certainly be unable to resist cute Tohya. Her mother agrees, but only if Kiri does so disguised as a man. Thus the stage is set for the wacky hi-jinks that will surely pepper subsequent volumes.

Entertaining debut for a series. It's not perfect - the story's predictable, and the characters are a little flat (and what is going on with Tohya's hair??) - but I think it has potential. ( )
