Ai Ore! ~Love me~
Story and art by: Mayu Shingo there is 8 volumes and a live action film that came out in 2012.
“The Boy (who looks like a girl) Meets Girl (who looks like a boy)”
Mizuki is the prince of her all girls school and the guitarist for a band. After the lead singer has to move away the band has to find a new singer. Enter Akira who is adorable and persistent and…a guy?! Even though it’s an all girls band Akira manages to take the place of lead singer and pushes Mizuki’s boundaries to get close to her.
Even though Mizuki acts cool and boyish she is actually very shy and girly, which is the opposite of Akira who looks adorable but is strong and ruthless when people cross him or touch his things. It’s a humorous and at times awkward love story about odd stereotypical roll reversals. It shows that you shouldn’t judge how people look and instead get to know who they are, it may surprise you.
I loved this manga and found myself laughing and face palming at embarrassing moments throughout the series. Even though Akira is small and girly looking he is very much a protector and a prince. I definitely relate to Mizuki because of her height and attitude and how sometimes its hard to let others take the lead or to trust them. I recommend this series for sure :).
