Rating (Out of 5): ~3-3.5
Publisher: Shojo Beat (VIZ Media)

Volume: 1. 9. 11.

Goodreads Synopsis:

The Kobayashi twins discover that cross-dressing as each other leads to trouble and true love!

The Kobayashi twins, Megumu and Mitsuru, were named after historical figures, but only Megumu has grown up with a taste for history. So when Mitsuru is in danger of losing his weekends to extra history classes, he convinces his sister to swap clothes with him and ace his tests! After all, how hard can it be for them to play each other?

Uesugi has been making plenty of enemies since coming to town, and a group of them have kidnapped Megumu as part of their revenge. Aoi and Uesugi put aside their differences in order to team up to rescue her, but in the ensuing battle Aoi loses his eye patch! Can Megumu convince him that his hidden wounds won’t scare her away, or will the trauma of his past be the end of their future?


There's a very emotional scene between Aoi and Meguro here, when she sees his scar and gets a real look at him. It should be heartwarming, I guess. Instead, it's too over the top most of the time—all those declarations are too much. Then the humor placed in to lower the seriousness just ruins it all around.
We also get a new revelation of Azusa's family, including a possibly two-faced mother and surprise sister who we've known all along. Honestly, I just don't really care for Azusa. Mitsuru isn't all that great, either.
Meh. Still just okay with this series, very up and down. Kind of more annoying at times than it should be.
