Manga Review: So Cute It Hurts!!, Volume 11, by Go Ikeyamada

Rating (Out of 5): ~3
Publisher: Shojo Beat (VIZ Media)
Release Date: February 2017
Volumes: 15.

Volume: 1. 10. 12.

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?

Azusa Tokugawa was a horrible bully until Mitsuru Kobayashi helped her tame her rage. Now her tender feelings for him have left her vulnerable to the turmoil in her parents’ crumbling relationship. Will the Kobayashis’ offer of safe harbor be enough to give her the strength to stand against her father’s plans for her?


Firstly, we get to see what happens between Azusa and her parents, and thus between Azusa and Mitsuru. We get to see here how great a bride she could be for Mitsuru. Near the end of the plot, Azusa moves away for a while, and there's a period when Mitsuru doesn't hear from her for months. Then she shows up, and there's going to be Drama, because her parents are loveless and strict and care about the Family Name.
I honestly don't care for either of these characters. Not at all, really.
For pretty much a chapter, we focus on Megumu and Aoi. Aoi is going away for college, and so they're going to be long distance. There's a very sweet, intense goodbye between them, and apparently things might get sexual in the next volume. We also get to see that Megumu is possibly getting further along in her manga-making goals.
Bleh. I'm not a huge fan of this series; it has some ups and downs. But apparently I'm in this till the end.

A review copy was provided by the publisher, VIZ Media, for an honest review. Thank you so, so much!
