Melodramatic characters, a ballet that has to do with the theme of the chapter and a lot of humor. We are Gorgeous is about a ballet company called ABC. What's so special about this company?

We are fabulous!
This is pretty sweet and funny. Please don't take it serious but take it as what it is... a yaoi comedy. The whole is basically is just men who can't dance and get cured by sex. The only weird thing about this is the scanlation. It's from the chinese and so people are making sounds that don't make any sense to non-asians. You can tell because sometimes, they didn't know how the named were pronounced in japanese so now there's "Sima Tse" and such.
Sexy, overly gay-acting dudes in ballet dresses, dramatic over the top actions... hell yes. These guys are so pretty in a dress any woman would get jealous!
Oh an, ballet sex positions... need I say more?
Look at the title of this review; that's the entire summary. I laughed at the arrows pointing at the ballerinas that they are MALE. Somehow, Araya-sensei makes this humor work through the entire series. You want yaoi and crack? This manga is for you.
Hilarious & Dramatic
First off, I want to say this: Men back then were the only ones on stage and actually wore makeup, wore dresses, etc., before women were allowed to go upon the stage.
To sum up this manga up, it depends on your sense of humor and tastes Sure, it does seem way too dramatic with all the poses and the end of chapter 5 was pretty funny. My favorite chapter is 2 because of the two lovers being pitted as enemies (which is a running gag throughout).
If you're looking for serious and a real yaoi manga, don't pick this up. But, if you wish to have some laughs with some whacky twists and dramatic men, then you may enjoy this.
This is a good gag manga--i kept laughing 20 minutes afterwards. especially chapter 2, i think. it maybe not the best manga around, but definitely one of the silliest and funniest around. the mangaka didnt afraid to make her characters look stupid; in fact that happened alot in hers. but this is the one i like the most from her. so why people kept saying this is bad? this is amusing!
Theatrical, Cabaret-esque, Comedic and Captivating
Usually, I like to approach manga as a holistic study of humanity, but in this one, Aryaya-sensei leaves behind the serious academia and provides much needed pure, over-the-top comedy with brilliant, dramatic reactions captured perfectly with her stunningly affected and posed character movement in her panels.
I really enjoy the technique of taking one 'universe' and then showing a bunch of stories, sometimes overlapping chronologically from different people's perspectives within that same universe.
The scanlation itself has a few issues of quality, but definitely Araya-sensei's humour shines through any of the mistakes and awkward wordings. I'm thankful and appreciative for the chance to read this hilarious piece by her in English.

Be careful when you accept a lead job at this company! You might say the atmosphere takes over .... just joking! The stories were really funny and cute as well. Ballet is so elegant. It is very hard work and takes years of training. Also, your career is usually really short by comparison. It is hard to imagine an all one sex troupe, but who knows, maybe somewhere in the world there really is one. Any artist, regardless of gender, is talented, so, I imagine they would be great!
Sooo... so... wierd... =S
I think these stories are pretty.. interesting. I laughed a lot at the story about male balarenaS.. it just looks so ridiculous; him wering a tutu and a tiara ;P & What kind of a title is "We are Gorgeous'??... nevertheless... it's still interesting i guess. I totally agree with the comment under me saying that they look JUST like women... they're so feminine too XD...they are also WAAAAY too dramatic, worse than girls! the 2nd chapter was just so... stupid.. in the funny akward sense... omg, I don't even know how to rate this, it's just so horrible... yet entertaining I give it a 6.99/10

I have read a lot of sensei's work and it seems to be a theme with the stupid couples, which yes cliche but nice. There is also that humor part where set character will go into total panic mode and do some strange dance of some sort that is just hillarious.
full of cliché, really funny. Act five is my favourite.
That is the most corniest manga ever produced.....full of shallow cliches and over used pun.....
