Product Description

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! But Mego can’t rely on just her book smarts in Mitsuru’s all-boys, delinquents’ paradise of a high school. And Mitsuru finds life as a high school girl to be much more complicated than he expected!

So Cute It Hurts is the story of twins Mitsuru and Megumo and their romantic comedy antics at school. It's silly and cute (as the title implies) but admittedly the plot is fairly pedestrian. Sweet but innocent girl, showy brother, mean girl and flashy guy at school and a lot of situational comedy. The art is sweet and this is definitely a feel-good title.

Story: Megumu and Mitsuru are twins. One day, they decide to trade places and through the magic of wigs, no one figures out in their high schools. When both meet the girl/boy of their dreams, they are not sure how they are going to reveal their crushes while cosplaying each other. Especially when the objects of their interest each like someone else.

The author has a lot of fun crossing romantic threads here: Mitsuru makes an enemy of popular girl Azusa, who then gets a crush on him. But Mitsuru likes Shino Takenaka. Shino likes Aoi Sanada; but Sanada is the guy that Megumu suddenly likes. Most of the first book is introducing the characters, getting to know the two love interests (Takenaka is deaf, Sanada wears an eye patch) and learning how to communicate with them. Mean girls and rowdy boys make each of the twins' lives difficult.

Although I didn't find much of interest here, I imagine that there are many who will really like this kind of cute story. Reviewed from an advance reader copy provided by the publisher.

When Mitsuru is in danger of failing his classes in the all boys school he attends he makes his twin sister swap places with him. Life isn't so much a breeze pretending to be a girl in a co-ed school as he thought as he comes to terms with the concept of Mean Girls and finding someone who might be his true soul mate. While the class work is no problem for Meg life isn't much easier as dressed like a guy she has to hide her feelings to the soul mate of her own she meets in her brothers school. At romantic comedy dealing with true love and the meaning of true friendship.

First of all, I was drawn by the blinding Day-Glo colors and the screaming title on the front cover while I was browsing in the teen section of my library.

But as usual, it's all about wide-eyed children in sailor uniforms and knee socks doing silly things - to amuse older Japanese men who never ended up with families of their own, of course (even though it's same old teen-oriented stuff over here, BTW.)

This time, it features two young moppets with blushing pink cheeks and tousled hair who decide to swap identities (actually, it's more like the womanizing brother pressuring his innocent twin sister into dressing like him so he will continue to chase chicks in spite of his failing grade in history that he must make up for) to secretly attend each other's high school (even though it would probably save the family money and time to send both siblings to SAME school IMHO. :P )

Two big, earth-shattering things happen to both brother and sister while they are going undercover at each other's schools: meeting the boy/girl of his/her dreams AND a bloodthirsty rival, too!

The cocky young hero (dressed as girl) foils an arrogant diva with his bamboo sword to protect a non-talking girl who could hold him spellbound with her strangely magical eyes while his sister (dressed as a boy) clumsily bumps into a patch-wearing alpha male dreamboat in futile attempts to escape a jealous bully whose girlfriend had been stolen by HER BROTHER! And both siblings fall hard for the dreamy love interest smelling slightly of pretty purple flowers. But that's not all. :)

The fuming rivals not only grow infatuated against their will with the disguised siblings; the objects of their affection MAY also be...(gasp, spoiler alert) dating EACH OTHER! This should add even more to the tissue-wringing teen soap opera drama. ^_~

While it's nicely drawn, it's still your usual generic manga stuff featuring the eternal parade of too-pretty kids whose tearful eyes and wispy bangs are usually displayed in very intimate little details in extreme close-up shots. Nothing special, though sign language for the deaf has been honorably mentioned here and some girls actually look kind of dumpy in their VERY loose-fitting school uniforms, too. :)

I’m not even sure what I was expecting with this series anymore, but I was a bit surprised.

This is about twins Megumu and Mitsuru. Mitsuru goes to an all-boys school, and when he starts failing in one of his subjects, he forces Megumu to switch places with him for a week. And on the first day, Mitsuru falls in love with a deaf girl, and gets Megumu in trouble with her popular supermodel classmate. While Megumu has to deal with the consequence of real Mitsuru hitting on a classmates girlfriend, and also falling in love with a boy with an eye-patch.

I’m intrigued, mostly. Mitsuru is a playboy with a big ego, and he’s in the kendo club. He’s learning how to tone that down, though, and use it for good, when he falls in love. And the girl he likes is a sweetheart. I like that he’s learning sign language to communicate with her.

Megumu is a lot of fun; she’s very girly and peppy, a bit of a crybaby, but I like her a lot. The guy she likes has a bit of a hard outside, but I think I’m going to like him as well.

There seems to be a bit of a mystery going on, there’s the cross-dresser element, twins, plus the love interests. The humor is very exaggerated, and it's a bit much at times; I'm hoping it calms down a little. I wasn’t expecting both twins to get so much attention and their own love interests, and that this is going to bring the twins closer together. I’m liking it so far, and look forward to the next one.

A review copy was provided by the publisher, VIZ Media, and Erik Jansen from MediaLab PR. Thank you so, so much!
