Hinata Saotome thinks her wildest dreams came true when she is asked out by the gorgeous En Shinohara. She would soon wish that it remained a dream, as she realizes that En is the cross-dressing boy at their school. He harbors a hatred for men, so much that he'd punch out his own reflection if he ever saw it, and his cross-dressing is his way of combating that. Hinata goes out with him anyway, and Hilarity Ensues as they try to make their relationship work.Usotsuki Lily, also known as Liar Lily, is a romantic comedy manga by Ayumi Komura that debuted in 2009 and is ongoing.
Hinata makes for a charming boy, which is such that girls want to go out with her. And the fact that she looks like her brother when she crossdresses is what makes him popular when he enrolls in the same school.
Even better is that both their younger brothers look great crossdressing. Taiyou looks like a tall Hinata, and Ten looks rather lolita.
Bi the Way: The eldest Shinohara brother, An, says that he's okay with both men and women, so long as they're cute.
Breaking the Fourth Wall: The characters will speak like they're aware they're in a manga. Most notable is Hinata questioning her main character status when she's not the focus of a chapter.
The Casanova: En's father, Shinnosuke. It causes friction with his wife.
Cherry Blossoms: Kojiro always has cherry blossoms falling around him, but only in season. It changes to leaves in the fall.
Date Peepers: Hinata followed Taiyou and En's date, and jumped out and interrupted it when her brother was about to kiss her boyfriend.
Does Not Like Men: En is a male example of this. The only men he doesn't snap at are his family and only male friend Naota. He later makes another exception for Kojirou.
Dude Looks Like a Lady: The youngest Shinohara brother, Ten, is cute enough to pass for a girl. He probably didn't even need the wig when he crossdressed to get Taiyou's attention.
Even the Girls Want Her: Hinata's popular with the girls whenever she crossdresses. The fact that her brother looks like her when she does is actually what makes him so popular when he enrolls in the same school.
Huge Schoolgirl: Gotou, it's what made her incredibly insecure about herself to the point of pursuing En, simply because he says he considers all girls cute. She gets helped out of this when she notices the Class Rep taking an interest in her regardless of her height.
Hypocritical Humor: "This guy has strange tastes, doesn't he? I can't understand it at all." Says En the crossdresser about his brother, Ten's homosexuality. Funnily enough, he becomes supportive when Ten becomes interested in Taiyou.
Same chapter, same family. Ken says that Hinata must be strange to fall for a perverted crossdresser like En. The guy who dotes upon said crossdresser and asserts that En is better when crossdressing (which is a sentiment others share).
I Didn't Mean to Turn You On: Not the first time anyway. When Ten visits the cafe with a classmate, this happens to Taiyou. The former tries it again intentionally in the next chapter.
Later at the trip to Kyoto this happens with En and Hinata.
Identity Amnesia: En gets hit on the head with a bucket of water in Chapter 15, and begins believing he is actually a girl. He gets better, thankfully.
It happen's again in Chapter 36, only instead of a girly-girly girl, En's personality inverts itself into a He-Man Woman Hater.
Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Wataru. Along with his tsundere aspects, he treasures his friends and was actually regretful over fighting with Gotou and punching the Class Rep in the process.
Laser-Guided Amnesia: The mangaka has decided that every April En is going to have amnesia. It's pretty darn specific what he remembers and what he doesn't. Hilarity Ensues every single time.
Lethal Chef: The Hashimoto twins. Their cooking is so lethal that it can even poison cockroaches to death.
Love Triangle: Between Taiyou, Ten and the latter's classmate, Saeki. And they're all guys (although two of them were crossdressing when the triangle was established).
Masculine Girl, Feminine Boy: Arguably Hinata and En. Especially when they're both crossdressing. Hinata is even strong enough to lift him up, completing the picture. Not to mention that she's constantly punching boys as if she is a fellow guy. (But only when they're being crazy.)
Nosebleed: Happens to Hinata whenever she confronts a really cute guy. En is very prone to this when he thinks Hinata is being especially cute. Hinata and Gotou both got nosebleeds at the same time in one moment.
One Gender School: In the terrible dream that En had where he went to an all-boys high school, all the girls he knew were also guys.
Samurai: Kojirou dresses like one due to his being a samurai otaku.
School Festival: Chapter 6 focuses on this. Hinata's and En's classes do cross-dressing cafes, girls-as-boys and boys-as-girls, respectively.
Senpai Kohai: Reina's a third year, and as such is referred to as 'senpai' by everyone else in the cast, even when she gets together with Naota.
Second Year Protagonist: Enforced. The cast didn't move up a year since the main characters became second years, which pisses Taiyou off since he wanted to pursue a relationship as a second year. It was also pointed out that Reina shouldn't graduate just as she and Naota had their Relationship Upgrade.
Serious Business: Cross-dressing, for En, who dislikes Shirota for putting on a dress and a wig just so Hinata would notice him.
Rawr seems to be one as well, being very ambivalent towards Naota. One one hand, he does like him, especially after his helping Reina out when she got a fever, but he doesn't want to be seen being nice to him.
Unsettling Gender-Reveal: When Hinata realizes at the begining of the series that the hot guy that asked her out before was the crossdressing guy at her school.
Wholesome Crossdresser: En, of course. Hinata cross-dresses occasionally, usually during work, and Gotou eventually becomes one as well.
