Mitsuki's a high school freshman worried about her looks--or, at least, her "baby face". Until, that is, she enlists a little help from classmate Atsuki and her makeup kit. When Atsuki's finished, the transformation is complete--and breathtaking. It's also when the romantic adventures begin--a roller coaster ride of the heart that young and old are sure to enjoy.

This manga will only be for the laughs if a seasoned manga reader goes through this. There are SO many loopholes and illogical things happening, not to mention unrealistic scenes, that it becomes laughable. (i laughed)

Also, as people have mentioned, this story is trite and overused, with an unbearably annoying main character as well as two boys with obvious personality issues. I wouldn't date EITHER of them based on the way the author presented them.

This, manga wasn't meant for the seasoned shoujo manga readers that have developed a sense of their own preferences, but to those who are new to reading manga, especially shoujo manga. I'll admit that the characters are so cliche that it makes u cringe (believe me I have) ,but, in all honesty, it gives inexperienced readers a taste of what borderline shoujo manga is all about.

The drawings were really cute and i also liked some of the clothes and wished i could wear them. Well through the whole thing Mitsuki goes back and forth from both the guys.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
You think she is going to end up with Kyo but at the very last chapter she decides to break up with Kyo and go for Atsuki.
Dont take it seriously just enjoy the cuteness of the story and pick a couple to root for, Go Atsuki+Mitsuki! ♥

This one actually surprised me at the end. Through most of the series, Mitsuki really wasn't sure who she truly liked. I had no idea which guy she was going to end up with until about the 17th chapter. The series isn't really a serious shoujo and I don't think readers should take it too seriously either. Just enjoy it for what it is. It has cute artwork and cute guys. What more could you ask for? lol

The heroine got on my nerve but she was better than the ones I really hate. I even got made because the couple I wanted only appear in the end as a couple ( buy still happy she choose him) if u have time on your life give this a try ;3

She seems to always love the one who she thinks doesn't love her or who she's not with, so judging by this pattern, I'd say Mitsuki and Atsuki would break up sooner or later. (if there were an extra after volume 3 it would be about her getting back with Kyo)

Thanks to BaeSooky for recommending this one to me, I loved it, the characters were all nice and I was pleasantly surprised that this manga wasn't filled with unlikeable jealous females and annoying misunderstandings and it was not too long that I had to skip chapters because nothing was happening. Definitely worth a read.
My only misgiving was that
Spoiler (highlight to view)
I felt that she was cruel to the guy who really liked her but she dumped because she didn't really say goodbye to him properly and tell him why it was she couldn't love him, it felt like she just dumped him and ran. Also I felt like there could be more moments between the two characters that did get together to justify their love more - if u get what I mean.
- but ah well the couple I wanted to get together did!

come on. There were a few chapters that jumped around and caused some confusion. There really was not much of a difference in the make up job except the hair. She is a typical teen girl so I will cut some slack for the female lead on being undecided. However the whinny part of her grated on my nerves.

I havent finished the manga at all. Only at the begining and frankly I like Kyo much more. But it was difficult to c who she was gonna end up with and now that I no its not Kyo im not gonna read the rest of the manga. Sorry but once i set my mind on who r gonna be the couple i dont like changing it besides, (Kyo is way hotter ;P)
