Is this what is called gap moe?

The very definition of it.

Expecting the twist from page one somehow only made it better, really.

Mi-kun is too cool!
PS: I expected their apparent images to be reversed, but I did not think they would still play it straight as if the cute girl still thought Mi-kun was the cool one.

The art is a bit all over- cool girl lost a few stone between panel 1 and 2 for example- but it was a fun idea for a manga..
I don't think I've seen that kinda gap and switch of expectations done much before..

Can anyone think of another manga with a couple and the really girly looking one is actually the tough girl and the tough or princely like girl is actually really gentle and girly girl?

I can almost hear the switch from uber-cutesy third-person speech to stereotypical-yakuza-wannabe tough talk and back again.

Is "Looks tough but is gentle x Looks gentle but is tough" close enough? Because there's undoubtedly some in the Delinquent tag. But if it's specifically the "princely" archetype and not a more general "tough-looking" I'd have to look a little harder. There's plenty of manga with a "prince but not really" kind of character, but combining that with "girly girl but actually super tough" is a bit harder to find.

If you're willing to look outside of those particular archetypes, into a more general sense of "not behaving the same way they look" sort of thing there's absolutely stuff out there. Gal and Otaku can't understand each other for example. Basically just search through the Gyaru and Delinquent tags and you're bound to find something.

Not quite the same is Don't Become an Otaku Shinozaki!, but it is a personal favorite of mine. It's a bit like Useless Lesbians Princesses, but a comedy instead of a drama.

@SushiKnight Thanks for the info- I've read Shinozaki- its great - tho it seems to have stopped? and I wish it developed and got a proper ending!

But i'd never read the Gal and Otaku series before- it was fun :) I'll go check the delinquent tag- tho i've probably read most of them.

But seriously, this author needs to STOP making so many one- or two-shots that make me want to become serialized! It's so frustrating! DX
