Its unfortunate that the series came 1 volume short of being completed. T_T I so wanted to find out how how Michiko progressed after all that she went through. Overall I simply enjoyed the story hope that Aurora makes a comeback though I wouldn't hold my breath on that. *sighs*

I've only read Vol. 1, and so far it's good. Not the most groundbreaking concept (manga about modeling industry), but I like how the story is about real people and their insecurites. Chihiro Tamaki has a very expressive, loose style which looks "unfinished". I find it very appealing and a nice change from the slick, sparkly styles. The back of the book has a very nice interview with the manga-ka on how she got started, her work process, advice for aspiring manga-ka, and photos of her studio.
