From Serenus Dreamers:
Asuka is a guy who has likings for girly things like shoujo manga, baking, and sewing. However, his mother forbids him being so and wants him to grow up manly. He starts learning kendo and karate and grows up to be stoic guy. But can he fight the urge of falling in love and hiding his real identity?

**Title: The title, "Otomen" is a pun. "Otome", meaning "young lady" or "mistress", and the English word "men" put together. The characters refer to Asuka as an "otomen" and even he himself has done so.

hopefully, there's no other thread for this manga. didn't see any in the manga index thread. anyway, i think this manga is really sweet and cute. i found it while looking for another story to read. i never read anything like this before, so i really like it.

I saw two volumes of this series at B&N today. It looks interesting. I was staring at the cover for the longest time because I wasn't sure if I wanted to buy it. Haha.

I have up to 6 volumes for this manga.

Its actually really good<3 not only is it hilarious, nice to see the guy and the girl having the role reversed.

The girl's pretty but really strong and masculine (but still feminine) and the guy's feminine but hes not too feminine (he balances well with his masculinity).

I think I would marry AsukaXD He has everything that I require out of a guy...he can be the 'female' and I'll be the 'male' haha.

I've read a little bit of the first volume because my host sister had it when I was in Japan.

But, other than that... I haven't exactly read it. It seems like a good manga, though.
