Skip Beat by Nakamura Yoshiki

Summary:

Kyoko Mogami is the childhood friend of superstar Sho Fuwa. Kyoko was so mindlessly in love with Sho that she followed him to the city on his quest to become a famous singer. But she soon realizes Sho was only using her as his personal maid to take care of household chores and pay the rent. Heartbroken, Kyoko won’t suffer in silence—she’s going to get her sweet revenge by beating Sho in show biz! 

A funny and entertaining romance story of a “diamond in the rough” trying to find her place in showbiz, and the people around her.


Review:

Skip Beat is my number two most loved manga of all time. It is funny; it is sensible; it is worth reading. Although it is still an ongoing manga, I still believe that it will forever be my favorite. The storyline is unique. I’ve never encountered a manga with the same storyline as this one. Also, Nakamura-sensei knows how to do all the progress without slicing and cutting the story just to reach the climax. In short, Nakamura-sensei doesn’t fail to address the details. 

Character-wise, Skip Beat is unlike those other shoujo manga with weak stupid female leads. Kyoko is a very strong character. She is intelligent, strong and independent. She can solve her own problems on her own without crying like soaked puppy. Her talent as an actress is inborn, but the manga shows that practice and experience are needed to hasten those talents. 

I know this manga has still a long way to go. Kyoko doesn’t know yet that Ren, in fact, is her childhood friend “Corn.” I wonder why Tsurugan Ren won’t admit it yet? 

Anyway, this manga is a must read. If you like female leads with strong independent personalities and hate those clingy weak female leads, this manga is for you.
