Editorial Reviews

Mizuho, a young man from a well-off family, is told that his grandfather's last wish is that he attend his mother's high school. Such a mundane request would ordinarily not bother Mizuho, but unfortunately, his mother's alma mater is an exclusive academy for young ladies. With the help of his childhood friend Mariya, he manages to convincingly disguise himself as the fairer sex, but will he be able to keep up the act until he manages to graduate? To make matters worse, Mizuho can't seem to keep a low profile within the school and ends up thrown into an election for the schools most prestigious position.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quiet, Restrained and Beautiful! March 28, 2010
Verified Purchase
I found Otoboku to be a great deal like a stereotypical Japanese woman, but that's not a bad thing. It was charming, and I found myself drawn in to a world very unlike anything I have dealt with. Mizuho is a boy who obediently agrees to go to a school that his Grandfather specified in his will-only to find that it is a conservative, all girl's school! A friend helps him to disguise himself as a beautiful girl who quickly becomes a very popular figure at the school. Mizuho learns many things about himself, and his family. I love a story that gets me emotionally involved, and this one does. My friends believe it is a bit manipulative-I don't know, I just enjoyed it. I would readily recommend it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Dub please! June 6, 2010
Verified Purchase
From the title of this review it should be obvious this is a subtitle only version. An annoying quirk is that it also defaults to Japanese w/out subtitles, so you have to go through set-up each disc. That being said, this is probably one of the best romantic comedy animes I've seen. I try not to give the plot-line in reviews, you can read that on the product listing. Instead, I give my impression, and this series impressed me. Good animation, well paced, and managed to combine romance, comedy, an apparently ridiculous story line, and even a little ghost into a well written story and make it seem normal as everyday life. The one point I'm not sure I liked was the final episode. It does wrap up the series, but in a round about way using a chibi style version of Cinderella (Tsunderella) that is, at least, an interesting take on the story. I won't say anymore so as not to ruin the ending. It was pretty good, but I prefer the ending to be in the setting the series is in, just my personal opinion, so don't let it sway your choice. As I said, this is one of the best anime of it's type I have seen, and i like the type. I just hope a dubbed version is in the future.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great fun! February 21, 2010
Verified Purchase
The lead character not only adapts to passing as a girl without a lot of stupidity, but winds up presenting himself as an outstanding manner. The humor which then surrounds him is is not only excellent, but it is for the most part not at his expense.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun Show. Unfortunately only Subs May 24, 2010
Verified Purchase
This show is alot of silly crossdressing fun. It is decently clean with no real nudity and no sex scenes, though there was a little gropping of the poor main Characters fake boobs as punishment by his female fellow conspirators at one point. The only downside I found is that it was not considered worthy enough of Dubbing. Too bad realy.
