Haven't even gone into the good romance parts yet...it's just about work work work, modeling stuff, supporting each other T^T, can't they have more lovers-ish scenes *boo-hoooooooo*
oh well it's the end, man wish there can be a scene where they hug each other tender lovingly

Not romantic

Oh common they are admiring each other, but if you go with that ending then they don't love each other. There are some hints of romance, but if you are into romance as much as me you probably will not like this manga too much. I give it credit for originality, but characters are messed up. I just don't like how everything is contradicting there especially the ending...

Love the story, hate the ending. That's no ending for me, that's nonsense! Tsk! Damn I'm pissed! At least make use of the epilogue to let Shiro comes back successful and they have a wedding or something. Disappointed max!

I was so excited for this story! And I'll admit, it's a worthwhile read UNTIL the very end. Like, literally, the last chapter ruined the whole story for me.

The characters are likable. The manga as a whole was humorous. The art is beautiful. The romance (I thought) was going at a pretty good pace.

And then BOOM
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
MAIN MALE LOVE INTEREST JUST LEAVES.

Hey. I'm not so petty. I mean, they do that in tons of shoujo manga. Must be one of the plot lines or something. So I was ready to deal with it because there was an epilogue.

But the epilogue where they're supposed to reunite after many years of finding their own way? IT WASN'T THERE. The epilogue was love interest guy Shirou leaving by himself at the airport. BY HIMSELF. Mei didn't even come to see him off! Seriously? I mean, the whole reason they were modeling was for each other and they don't even care that they're not going to see each other for possibly ever?

Are you fucking kidding me?


So yeah. If you read this manga, don't read for the romance. Read for the finding-yourself-through-modelling because that was the only vibe I got from this manga.

I liked everything except the ending. It was really sweet and at times funny. The characters are lovable.. and not too annoying. But the story was so short!! I do wish it was a little longer. I'm not a fan of the way it ended. It just left me thinking wtf?!

First of all, I loved the whole concept of wanting to "shine" and "be seen" and how both characters developed together and supported each other the whole time. It really brought out how important it is to have someone believe in you so that you're not going through your journey alone. Really good relationship between the two from start to finish and the romance wasn't so heavy and cliche, but was really simple and light. I enjoyed this manga but I do have some issues with it as well....
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
The ending was really bittersweet how both of them had to go their own seperate ways and follow their own path and that's cool, there was nothing wrong with that part but it's just that there's no closure between the two. He kind of just told her he's going to paris and then she's very understanding and she tells him she will stay behind and then THE END. They kiss, he leaves, she stays, future-scene of her flying somewhere to go a cover model for the first time and that's it. Doesn't show them seeing each other in the future or getting together, she kind of just said "he went his way. I my own. and as long as we believe in each other, we'll shine." yeah... wasn't a fan of that.


I only wish it was longer.. could've been one amazing manga.

This manga is amazing, not for its plot or its story, but rather for the pure feelings that are conveyed by the author. Shirou and Mei are both very adorable and lovable characters (in personality and artwork) They would make any fangirl or fanboy :X salivate like an idiot. The feelings of not being good enough or loving someone are very real and mixed with the unrealistic theme, it overall gives a very sweet and soft feeling. I suggest this to anyone with a heart for pure love.

I really enjoyed Shirou- as with all Shigeyoshi sensei's male main characters. The thing about them is that they are so lovable and so sweet. They dont have any hidden agendas and they wont betray the heroine (which I hate the most) I suggest if you are the same as me to look up Shiraishi Yuki Sensei. Her works are light but very good. Shigeyoshi and Shiraishi sensei I LOVE YOU.

Beautifully written, character-driven story about models

Ok, so let's face it - it's not remotely realistic, but really with shoujo, all real-life rules tend to go out the window. It's a fairly fluffy story about two models who happen to truly love and cherish each other. The art is beautiful, and the story is just the right length.

That being said, my favorite part of the story as the characters. Shiro is an absolute sweet-heart; he's incredibly cute and he truly loves Mei. His type is my favorite type for male leads. I've always hated the tsundere type of guy; the type that seems to populate the majority of shoujo. Mei, on the other hand, isn't your stereotypical crybaby shoujo lead. I love how even though she has flaws and weaknesses, she tries to do her best to overcome them through her own strengths. She and Shiro constantly help and support each other, and they're together as equals. A stunning couple in my opinion.

Overall, it was really refreshing and a nice read. Don't read it for the story or plot, because it's not particularly interesting in that sense, but the characters are so real that it makes it a fascinating read. I generally am not a big fan of shoujo as a genre, but Takagi Shigeyoshi made my time worthwhile. I'll definitely be looking out for more of her works.

Don't know if it's my weakness for (2x really) Cinderella-esque plot moments, for the beautiful art, or for the wistfulness that infuses all of this mangaka's work, but I love it to pieces!

I am already captured by the first chapter, and hopefully the story stays strong, because the art is good, but the plot should be a bit more captivating. despite what we find out about him and her though, i think its pretty adorable, and it should help her more, and maybe we'll find out the truth about her incident later on too.
