I bought this manga on a whim, the back blurb sounded interesting and I was sad after hearing that TokyoPop was closing its USA Office. All I can say is WOW...was not expecting what came out of this manga at all; the back cover doesn't do it justice and doesn't actually tell what the story is about. Add to the fact that this manga is quite bigger than typical size and it was a fantastic buy.

First I must say that this does major gender bending as well as challenge the ideas of what a girl and bo
Just like in everything else, within the medium of manga, you will find exceptional storytelling and you will also find trash. Sadly for me, Ai Ore! falls into the trash category. I really should have known better because before I try most any series, I will meticulously review both the story (what reviews is it getting from sources I trust?) and the mangaka (what else has this author written?). If I had done either of these things, this would have been a no-brainer. But, as I mentioned in anoth ...more
I got curious about this after hearing about Shinjo Mayu's fight with Shougakukan (how they wanted her to just crank out Kaikan Phrase clones, until she got sick of it and left them for Asuka), and looked up some reviews on Amazon, where I read that you didn't need to read the original Shougakukan series (Ai wo Utau Yori Ore ni Oboreru), so I went ahead and ordered the first volume of AiOre. And, indeed, I didn't feel lost at all starting there (okay, it did take me a minute to realize that all ...more
Not that I have much knowledge or experience with manga, but I think I picked this one up based off of a short summary and recommendation I read online. I was curious about the gender play which is what initially intrigued me... but that's about all I could appreciate from this manga. Everything else is pretty stereotypical in terms of gender and heterosexual relationships, and then all the forcefulness and not to mention rape at the end was pretty awful. The idea of gender play that I thought w ...more

Το πρώτο τεύχος των 6 κεφαλαίων, μιλάει για την σχέση των Akira και Mizuki η οποία και προκαλεί ποικίλες αντιδράσεις. Εκείνη, όταν πρότυπο του σχολείου της κι εκείνος, όντας αγαπητός αλλά μαθητής σε ένα σχολείο που αποτελεί παράδειγμα προς αποφυγήν, δεν είναι δυνατόν να είναι μαζί, όχι χωρίς να προκαλέσουν σχόλια. Η Mizuki προσπαθεί να διατηρήσει αποστάσεις αλλά ο Akira είναι αποφασισμένος να την κάνει να καταλάβει πως τίποτα δεν μπορεί να τους κρατήσει χώρια. Βέβαια, κάπου εκεί εμφανίζεται η υπ ...more
So it turns out I can handle constant damselification or a completely improbable plot with no relation to reality but asking me to take both at once is too much. 1.5 stars
I absolutely love Shinjou Mayu's work, especially Sensual Phrase. When I realized this was by her, I hunkered down into a big comfy armchair expecting to have my mind blown.

It wasn't blown. Before I start having people object to my review, let me explain my stance.

The artwork in this was amazingly beautiful, just as you'd expect something by SM to be. She very lovingly illustrates her books, bringing the characters to life & helping to draw you into them. In this aspect the book was absolute
2.5 .. I love the female group Blaue Rosen; the 'gender bender' REALLY confused me at first, but I got used to it.. sort of ...

I hate Akira.. I hate him.. I don't like short boys going after tall girls, it's just not my thing. And the bipolarish switching from an adorable moe character to 'a man' wasn't very convincing. It seemed so out of character every single time. He doesn't even look like the kind of character that would be 'a man' around girls...

Recommends it for: Girls and boys who love romance and cuteness
Recommended to Princess by: I was actually looking for another manga from this author but it wasn't there,Ai Ore! came up
Oh man,this is sooooooooo cute and romantic.the characters are soooooooo cute,escepially akair and mizuki.First i thought akair was a girl, seriesley he looks really like a girl.I love the part when he gets so manley (its hot).Mayu Shinja, you rock.

Okay the story is like this,Akair is the male ''princess'' of his all- boys high school and Mizuki is the female ''prince'' of her all-girls high school.Akair looks like a cute little girl, but he is a male and Mizuki looks like a handsome boy,she act

I loved this Manga all the way to the end. It is engaging and definitely unique, so it gets at least 3 stars. But the final scene of volume 1 left me disgusted and unsettled. I understand the intent was to be shocking and intense, but I can't condone the acts that are committed even in a story. The implication is that it is justified because of the victim's own attempt to victimize another.

Since the violent act is a cliffhanger I'll probably read at least volume 2. But I don't know that I can go
I'm loving this series
too much comedy and the main character looks like a little girl ;( (like the Raven in Akuma na Eros, where as a side character he already annoyed me)

And the story about the schools dwindling reputation is even more annoying.
I loved this book. The idea of a prince, all-female rock band and a princess male lead is what really captured my attention. The plot line is humorous and fluffy, while still going deeper into the teenaged psychology. There's humor, drama, a building romance, and quite a bit of platonic protectiveness. And while the male lead is small and adorable, he's got a bit of a dark side, so to say.
The premise was interesting. The manliest girl from an all girls' school hooks up with the girliest boy from the all boys' school. But he's too pushy and she's too weak-willed. Then there's lots of attempted rape between other characters and just ugh.
This is a funny, cute gender bending romance. The story of a girl who looks like a boy and a boy who looks like a girl. The artwork is great and the couple had me rooting for them. Loved it!
