    Don t be put off by the length of this series You will regret it And there is a VALID REASON WHY THIS SERIES IS SO POPULAR.Don t like shojo That s fine, because Skip Beat makes fun of it I was worried to pick this up because I tend to not love the popular series I want my romance done right, with tension, and a good female lead I want comedy, a swoon worthy male lead And I want a girl who isn t afraid to stick up for herself, and to go for what she wants a career.Kyoko Mogami was a naive and romantic girl who let a man named Sho break her heart She vows revenge, enters showbiz through hilarious means, and runs into the sexiest man in showbiz, Ren Tsuruga They instantly hate each other He doesn t like that she s only here for revenge and believes acting should be cherished She can t believe that he judges her for this, and constantly is criticized by him.What does Skip Beat do that causes so many people to praise it It gives us a story where the heroine doesn t fall into cliches that most others do She gets violent, she envisions strangling her enemies, she badmouths the love interests, and she barricades her heart so she doesn t fall in love The main love interest, Ren, makes fun of his cliche as the childhood friend that Kyoko doesn t realize he is We see him fall in love with her first We see his thoughts and we watch as he goes from hating her, to respecting her, to finally falling for her.I dislike showbiz but omg this is entertaining It s hilarious, it s gripping, and the romance isn t in your face The heroine guards herself but she s not an annoying dunce She s oblivious about Ren s feelings but it isn t annoying Because the way it s set up is so that Kyoko has to grow into a stronger woman before she loves again And Ren needs to earn her love and respect 100x over and that means revealing dark secrets The romance is tension filled and slow burning and there s great female friendships No pointless girl hate XDI can t recommend this enough and I m mad at myself for not picking this up sooner If you re tight on cash the omnibus is the best way to go Support manga, guys.

    The attention to detail in this Japanese comic book is quite remarkable, both in the exceptional artwork and in the text itself, especially the asides that are thrown in that give the idea of a play, and yet the story is relatively simple in concept.Briefly, Kyoko is interested in pop star Sho, who abandons her in Tokyo, and Kyoko wanting revenge and bearing a grudge this is the theme in the book , is determined to join a talent agency and the LME Talent Agency is her target.With sheer perseverance I always admire that in an individual when they know what they want, be it for whatever reason, apart from wanting to kill someone, of course , she doggedly pursues and manages to persuade L.M.E Talent Agency, Talento Section Supervisor, Takenori Sawara, age 41, born March 10, Blood type AB to consider her for an audition and would you believe that Sho s rival Ren Tsuruga belongs to this agency And what is the end result Well that s for you to find out.I m not too sure of the exact meaning of Manga does it mean comic books or cartoonish art Either way, the book states that it is for thirteen year olds and upwards, and so that includes me.I ve always had a great admiration for the Japanese Their history, their age old customs and traditions, their stoicism in times of disaster I still shudder when I think of that shameful episode in 1945 with such a tremendous loss of life , their inventiveness and advances in technology over the last few decades and now I see that Manga is now another string to their bow.What I particularly liked were the comments made by the author on the left of the page, and studded from time to time throughout the book, as to how the book came to fruition Her editor appears to be quite a demanding individual too, what with four different attempts at Kyoko s hairstyle, questioning the title of the book, etc Also there are end notes at the beginning I mean the end as you have to read the book Japanese style from the right to the left giving short meanings of some of the terms used.Here are a few of them The big sneeze In Japan sneezing is a sign that people are talking about you Sneeze once and you are being praised, twice and you are being criticized, three times and you are being laughed at or admired or scolded , and four times means you will catch a cold Also, Straw doll In Japan straw dolls can be used, much like voodoo dolls, to put a curse on someone , And, The hand coming from Kyoko s throat In Japanese, there s an expression to want so much that a hand comes out of the throat This is a visual representation of that expression I came across this book by chance as a recent Goodreads friend had this as his favourite book And when there s one favourite book not many involved, I always like to check it out as it gives me of a clue about the personality of the friend concerned.All in all this is a super little gem of a book and highly recommended to arty farty types like myself.

    Manga is something that I like reading again and again Skip Beat is my favorite series in the world Why, might you ask I would be glad to explain it The story is great, the artwork is great, it s never a chore to push through chapters the story is slow, as is the romance, and the two main characters love each other because they love each other, not because they re randomly attracted to one another If you read manga a lot, you know what I m talking about It happens in literature, too, but it s just so. I don t even know how to explain A lot of the time, there is no growth in the relationship It starts out as a the girl and the guy having some sort of weird obsession with the other that they call love In Skip Beat, there is serious progress, starting with both of the characters hating each other down to their cores Then it turns into respect, and even when Tsuruga realizes that the two have a very significant past together, he doesn t suddenly go, Aha I love this girl No He says to himself, I shouldn t like her just because of my memories with her It s only when he starts getting to know her as the person that she is now that he lets himself treasure her As for the main character spoiler , Kyoko, she doesn t even know she likes him yet yes, not even in the currently being released Japanese chapters It s because of how nastily she was treated by her childhood friend, Sho She loved Sho and he broke her heart Now she s vowed never to love again, et cetera Just because Tsuruga and Kyoko haven t sworn eternal love yet doesn t mean it doesn t have its intense moments, though It s not like a super prudish series that you shouldn t read because there s absolutely no romance Quite the contrary, there are a lot of moments that make your skip a beat or two pun completely intended Though, seriously, after twenty nine ish volumes, if Nakamura sensei doesn t progress their romance further sometime soon, I am flying to Japan to file a formal complaint not really, because I think she s doing it perfectly as is.Basically, this series has something special about it that I think makes it than worth reading.

    I have a proper review somewhere I absolutely love this series One of my favourite shoujo mangas ever Kyoko is awesome in her wacky intense yet likable way Ren is curiously interesting and dedicated to his work And Sho, he is the villain who very villain like, but yet, as the series goes on, proves that he is capable of feeling human Actually I find his character intensely interesting just like Kyoko s and Ren s I guess they are just one of the reasons why I m so drawn into this series The other reasons include, one, the plot and the insight I get into Kyoko s journey through showbiz I think it s amazing watching her transform and grow each time Two, the other characters Three, Kyoko Four, Ren Five, what else Everything else Anyway, I m writing this particular review since I ve done one already on another of the volumes is because recently I just started watching the live action Taiwanese adaption And normally I d hate it, but I needed to practice listening to Mandarin I have to say I m actually kinda really, super dooperly impressed with the adaption I think with the exception of the CGI it s done really well I like how it is and I can t seem to get enough of it I think as an avid fan of Skip Beat this does justice to the series or at least after the first episode and up to where I am now I ve also heard some not so good things about the last ep though of course, this probably can t match up to the anime, much less than the original manga.For a in depth review which I wrote at some point in August in 2012, please click HERE I also realised I don t have a proper review on Goodreads somewhere, but I felt if I copied and pasted my old review here, it probably won t make much sense since it has spoilers and scenes from other volumes

    Kyoko, our main character is a sweet, hard working young girl at the start of the story She and Sho, her childhood friend and crush have been living in the city for a few months while he works towards his goal of becoming a famous musician, while she works two jobs to support him Her happy existence comes to an end, however, when she overhears Sho talking about the real reasons he brought her to Tokyo with him Now Kyoko is out for revenge, and won t stop until she manages to make it in the entertainment world herself and surpass Sho I grabbed the second volume on my last run to the comic store, so I ve been picking this up and reading a few chapters a bit at a time over the last few days, working towards book 2 It s still quite entertaining upon a re read The plot is interesting, and it should be interesting to see if and how Kyoko manages to achieve her goals You can t just go up to a director and demand they put you into a movie, after all Cons to the manga I m not a huge fan of the art It s early in the series, so it might improve later right now the character designs seem a little odd, though Very pointed chins on the faces, giving the characters a rather alien appearance Some people might not like the characters, either the manga is humorous in nature, and Kyoko s behavior is quite exaggerated to accent create this It s over the top and a little ridiculous at times, but still entertaining.

    Ok, about Skip Beat I must say that I truly enjoy this particular manga The heroin, at the beginning, is every run of the mill shojo character However, after she realizes that the one she loves does not love her, and in fact has been purposely using her for his own gain, she shows her darker side that is both scary and comedic She vows her revenge on him in the only way that she can hurt him, to be a bigger star in show biz Through out her trails she shows unbelievable feats of physical strength in a comedic way and her devil helpers often come out in her anger Also she does not break into showbiz right away, which is a reality relief for shojo manga I know that I find it slightly laughable that when ever a girl wants to break into showbiz in a manga, suddenly in the second book she s on her way to be a star Also when she meets her other love interest in the story she hates him Not only that but she has sworn to never love again, so I can be happy to know that I won t be seeing any sappy love parts in the middle of her trying to get revenge Also because she has sworn to never love again any love that she does feel will have to take it s time and develop It won t be they see each other and fall in love.
