Title: Tokyo crazy paradise
Mangaka: NAKAMURA Yoshiki



Genre: Action, Comedy, Drama, Gender Bender, Romance, Sci-fi, Shoujo
Description
It's the year 2020 AD, and Tokyo II is a city infested with crime. Women can no longer go out in the streets alone without being victimized. Not wanting their daughter to suffer the same fate, Tsukasa Kozuki's cop parents raise her instead as a boy. When they are suddenly killed by one of the yakuza's in-fights, Tsukasa is left orphaned on the streets along with her three brothers. With no other options, she goes to the only person she can think of for help: pokerface Ryuji Shirogami, her classmate of 8 years and also the head leader of the powerful yakuza group, Kuryugumi. Ryuji, whose father was also a victim of the same yakuza fight, agrees to take her on as his personal bodyguard. As they set out to find their enemy, Ryuji slaps an increasing amount of debt onto Tsukasa, using all manner of ploys to keep the reluctant Tsukasa by his side.
(from mangaupdates)

^^, I read this manga 5 years ago, but although how many times I read it, I still like it very much ^^. Tsukasa is so cool when she's a guy, strong and brave :x, but when she's a girl, she's really beautiful :D. The same mangaka with Skip beat, but I like it more than Skip beat. Not only girls, but also guys like this manga too ^^, I borrowed this manga from a guy in my class. Action, but it's still romance, that's point I like this manga :P magic

The same mangaka with Skip beat, but I like it more than Skip beat.

I agree. I tried 'Skip Beat', but it just wasn't for me, despite all the popular reviews. However, I loved 'Tokyo Crazy Paradise'. I also agree about Tsukasa.

Tsukasa is so cool when she's a guy, strong and brave :x, but when she's a girl, she's really beautiful

One complaint I do have is that at times I felt the story dragged on a little, but all in all I really loved how the mangaka pieced this manga together. The action that was portrayed in this manga was skillfully done and really kept your interest, unlike some action manga out there.

I like this manga because of the strong female characters, also it has such a good storyline too, i recommend this to anyone. the fights scenes and romances are very cool.

I really enjoyed this story and you can see the beginnings of Nakamura-sensei's "chibi mania" that truly manifests itself in Skip Beat. The only thing about Tokyo Crazy Paradise that I was disappointed in was the ending. It had a flat feel to it.

I tried first read it, but I didn't take interest in it. The reason for that may have been that I wanted to read really lovey-dovey mangas that time. I think I someday start again reading it.

I love love love this manga. It's on my list of favorite manga. I really like the heroine because she doesn't need a guy to protect her all the time. She can fend for herself, and is really skilled. She's a tomboy, but can be feminine when she wants to. The guy is indifferent, stoic, and whatnot, but he develops during the manga.

For some reason I totally love Gender-bender mangas.. so when I learned of this series, I started reading it right away. Well the other factor was also b/c it was the same author as Skip Beat, but I only found out about afterwards. If I had to compare the 2 though, like some of you are doing, I'd think I'd have to go for Tokyo Crazy Paradise as well. Both plots have great amounts of romance included, but it's just that TCP also has a fair amount of action mixed in. happy

I love this manga!! One of my favorites, actually, and it got me more engrossed in manga than anything before it. I love Tsukasa with Ryuji and I love how she amazes him (and everyone else) when she is dressed as a girl.

The fighting is also great. I would definitely buy the whole series if it all came out in English!
