Neosam said this about it in the new anime thread when it was just a rumor.

I didn't read the manga too, but I know that its a love comedy manga between two females, when one of them is not really a female (a boy disguising himself as a female).

Edit:
ooh Westlo quoted me before I posted LOL

Well now, that's VERY interesting...

Maybe I should buy the manga just to see... I'm pretty sure despite that one little fact, it's probably not the same as Otome wa boku ni koishiteru

A sadistic crossdresser? I'm so there. I'm quite curious about the art, 'cause it looks like has progressed quite a bit since Hatenko Yuugi. wouldn't mind seeing more of this, so it's time to see what i can find.

Edit: Ah, so it's going to be directed by Shinbo and of course a SHAFT Production. I'm looking even more forward to this, though i must check out the manga first.

The premise is interesting enough, so I'm in for this one.

Afaik it's more like a comedy than a romantic comedy, since there is not a romantic interest between the main girl and the crossdressing boy.
The most recurring gag is the main girl (who's lesbian) having nosebleeds caused by her female classmates (it's a girls' school) and sometimes also by the guy only because he looks like a beautiful girl.
On the other side, the boy is a sadic, so he likes to torment her.

Ooh.. I just discovered Chinese scanlations of the manga earlier today. Good timing.

Production by SHAFT makes this series exciting and who can say no to sadistic traps?

I wonder how many yuri tropes and references Shinbo is going to pack in this series.

Ah, another promising title to look forward to (i wonder when i'll stop saying that ). I remember my cousin mentioning that he bought vol.1 some time ago but never had the chance to ask about it until they left D: i'll prolly just check some scanlations while waiting for this and Kannagi and SHINA DARK.

looking forward to their respective seiyuus.


P.S. I dunno who the guy in disguise is but the one wearing the maid-fuku is win

I just read the first three chapters of the manga, and i really enjoyed it. As expected, it's pretty funny, though i do wonder if romance would play a part in the story at some point. At the beginning it just used in the humor, though i've seen in the past how that can change pretty quickly.

Kanako is adorable. That's all you really need to say about her at the beginning. I don't think i've ever come across such an adorable lesbian. If they choose the drama CD cast, then i can already imagine the voice Hirano will use for her. Nothing against Hirano, though i'd rather see someone else play her.

Now onto the main event, oh god Mariya. I didn't think she was going to be that evil, though in a way (because i like sadistic), it comes across as being rather cute. It's not the same kind of sadistic jokes over and over, so it's nothing that gets old.

Going to be very interesting to see how Shinbo will handle this show.

*goes to check out the manga*

EDIT: *eye twitches* ...can't find any translations for it. Guess I'll just have to wait for the anime to come out next year, then.

It can be. I remember once or twice Kanako reacts as if she really cares about that trap and she wonders why. But the biggest obstacle for that relation, as you know, is not sadism or lesbianism but

At this rate, i just think she'll appear on the last volume. Strange that she didn't at least appear on the second, so that's why i say that.

Still, it really all depends on what kind of story the creator is going for
