From Condensation:
The story centers around Keito Aoyama, a former famous child actor. Due to a childhood incident, she retired from her career early and withdrew from normal society. Now 16, she passes her days in boredom and without purpose. But one day she runs into a stranger who takes her to El Liston--a free school for high school students like herself, who don't have a place where they belong. Though hesitant at first, Keito decides to enter El Liston and subsequently, she begins a new stage in her life. With the help of her only remaining childhood friend, Taiyou, and her new classmates Rei, Momiji, and Kouichi, Keito slowly finds the courage to open up to others and to accept their support. Will Keito return to acting? Will she find true friends? Love?

I skipped over this manga a number of times for more excitng sounding mangas, but I regret doing so now. After reading the description I wasn't sure what to think. Truthfully, I couldn't understand why people praised it so much; it sounded plain and downcast. After finishing the series, I count myself among those who were drawn in by Keito's emotional journey to rediscovering herself.
I will most certainly be drawn in to reading Cat Street a few more times in the future.

I was shocked at who Keito ultimately ends up with in the end. But I was hoping for them to be a pair.

BTW, I'm surprised that it's by the same author as HYD.

I liked many things about this manga, except that it was a bit slow at the beginning.
This manga can actually teach you things that you may encounter in real life, like how to fight for yourself, stop blaming others for your own failures.. so on and so on! it reminded me of my own experiences in life and wished i had done the same. its not too melodramatic either but it does know how to deliver you drama without your heart being torn out.

i highly recommend this story, its very lighthearted wink

This was a fantastic story. I've been putting off reading it because I didn't care much for the summary, and I personally haven't been very impressed by the author's other works, but it was really great, and I felt very close to all of the characters.

I think part of the reason was that the cast of characters were all introduced very early on in the story, and it remained the same until the end. Supporting characters came and went, but the main characters were always there. It was a well paced, sweet read, and I'm glad I read it.

A great read with plenty of character development. You get drawn into their plight and their own deals with society. That everybody has their own talents and their own problems, wanting to be shut away from everybody else. But loneliness sinks in and just having friends with somebody to talk to makes a big difference in someone's life.

Love the romance parts too and the naivety it brings. The relationships keep you guessing until the end.

something must be wrong with me. i've read this manga because a lot - i mean A LOT of people have been recommending this but when i actually read it, i feel that there's something missing. it didn't move me. even though there is character development, i don't think that she's all that great. i mean, she's too melancholic for my taste even after the end and even after she started smiling and laughing in the story. i like her lolita friend - she's my fave character. how i wish she was the heroine. hahaha. this manga didn't leave me feeling overwhelmed. it didn't make me want for more. anyways, i'll just read it once more. maybe then i'll change my opinion.

I was going to write a really long review on all the different aspects of this manga and how amazingly well each person was characterized within and how it moved me so deeply that I did honestly scream, cry, and cheer for characters along their journeys...

... but after trying so hard to properly describe this manga and how it so perfectly wove a story I am willing to bet money cannot and never will be matched, all I can say is: why the hell are you still reading this review? Read this manga. Now. You don't need to care about the shoujo genre one way or another. As I personally hate shoujo, I can vouch that that doesn't matter. Out of the genres, I'd say this manga most fits shoujo, but that is only because it doesn't quite fit any of the other genres either. Finally, I can read a manga in which the main female lead is never almost-raped by a gang of thugs--or anyone for that matter--and there are no unrealistic hero rescues to accompany that plot device which has to be the most overused and unrealistic in manga history. The rescues that happen in this manga are much more subtle and ultimately rely on the decisions and strength of the characters facing the trouble themselves. The only thing stray cats can do for one another after all is try to save while being saved.

As a result, I think the strongest point of this manga is that even in its psychologically darkest moments (which are pretty damn dark if I may say so), it gives the reader hope to do something positive themselves. The world may be a harsh place to live in, but the brightest lights shine in the darkest places.

I was introduced to this manga by site. Since it was already completed, I decided to give it a try. I end up reading the entire series in one day. I absolutely love this manga and would recommended to all. The main character girl in this story isn't a crybaby, which was a plus to me. Basically, a girl with this huge problem of being society-withdrawn due to something happened to her childhood and how she was able to get back to her feet. For some people, they might get frustrated with her, but I can feel I can relate to her. Who here haven't felt the time that they want to be shut in from the society after something happened to them? Like for an example, "I embarrassed myself in front of the whole school. I don't wanna go back to school ever again!" In this case, this deals with something more extreme version of this.

She stumbles many problems and learn how to overcome the obstacles. What I love about this story was that it wasn't so dramatized that I was going to throw the manga out my window. Which mean no back-and-forth decision with which guy she'll end up with and no non-realistic situations.

I also love how she can go back to being positive after being so negative for so many years. Lastly, what made this manga attracted me was the idea that kids can go to the school on their free will. Lol, I wish we can have school like that. XD

I don't know how I stumbled upon this manga. I try to stick to really fluffy stuff, things that satisfy my less-than-secretive need for wish-fulfillment. But Cat Street is hands down the best I've read so far. It was surprisingly complex and entirely unpredictable. The main character seems to be a typical shoujo character, constantly relying on others, tearin' up all the time, falling in love at every pin-drop, but in the end, each of the characters has something very unique and special to provide to the story. And some things are left untied at the end, too, but not in a way that's unsatisfying. The narrative ends as a good tale should - with the manga's world living on, beyond the last page.

It was a nice series. Nothing too fanciful or melodramatic. The drama is lighthearted, the romances don't end up being too corny like other shoujo series, and in the end it evokes a melancholic feeling, urging people to stop blaming things and take control of their life. You'll have to fight for your own happiness, and keep your friends close.

Nothing specific to complain about. It was a pleasant read.

I loved reading this manga. It had a good pace and kept me extremely interested. Also, I loved every one of the four main characters! The manga had great character development. You're able to witness how each of the four main characters grow into a stronger person and role.
It's been a while since I had a good shoujo read and this definitely was satisfying.
