Description
It's the start of high school, and Kako decides to "produce" her bookworm of a childhood friend, Kousei, so that he can become a good-looking and popular school idol. She models him after Lawrence, a character in a manga she likes, but as Kousei's transformation becomes a huge success and he extends his new character beyond what she asks for, what will Kako do? Will she find herself left behind in the wake of his newly found popularity?

I loved this, if only for the extremely refreshing concept of the girl wanting her friend to become a bishounen so others wouldn't laugh at him- NOT because she didn't think he was already cool, but she wanted to show others how cool he was, and she got infuriated and insulted when they insulted him. It deserves an 8 if only for that, because I am so sick, sick, sick of girls not thinking their totally awesome male leads are lame. I loved this refreshing change.
The male lead was also just my type of male lead- possessive, childish and kind- but not kind in the pick-up-a-kitten-in-the-rain kind of way, but more of a normal, realistic kind.
The plot was a little meh, but it was bearable due to the characters lovely relationships.
So overall, much better than I expected it to be, and a recommended read.

well everything there is to this manga was said already. Alwerien told exact my thoughts chemistry and feelings-wise:
dumb heroine who does horrible things to the guy who loves her and does everything she wishes for, "not noticing" her own feelings and continuing to be horrible.

Shinjite Florana tells you what to expect from the plot:
forced drama situations that are so highly unlike to happen you want to bang your had on the table.
"Typical" but incredible stupid superman transformation of the heroine, where no one recognizes her without glasses and she charms everyone but the second she puts on her glasses everyone is like: where did the beautiful girl go?

And as everyone mentioned: the art is the best part about this manga. It makes the scenes extreamly sweet and fluffy.

I am really a fan of well .done cliche shojo and lovestorrys in all colors but the above mentioned execution ruined this one for me.

But maybe i am just one of few...

Honestly, I wonder if this is even worth reviewing. I am not one to criticize people's taste, but this manga was so dull! I can't understand how anyone could like this!

It was pretty much the same theme throughout the series, there was no drama, not really any progression, I did not feel attached to the characters, the romance was dull, the plot would have been somewhat interesting if it had been executed better and I honestly didn't like it.

I won't rant because Ichinose probably worked hard on this manga and I don't like to speak ill of her because I'm a fan of her other works, but this one was just ridiculously mundane. Can't even call it cliche because it would speak poorly of well executed cliche mangas. Bloody failure!

OK. So I know this has a lot of "bad ratings", but I absolutely LOVED it!! The story was just so gosh darn cute (squeals) :-)

First off I loved the characters and the fact that there wasn't any unnecessary drama. And I loved the growth of the characters the most. That's one thing I always love seeing in mangas, It was so cute how Kousei loved Kako but she was too slow to see it and how she felt herself.

The art was amazing. It's one thing I always look forward to in mangas as well... Besides the story that is. Because the story is what draws me in the first place. The art is just an incredible bonus :-D

Though the ending was a little disappointing to me... I still think the whole thing was a job well done!

There was nothing that outstanding so I'll cut to the chase.

Characters ★★
Seeing how I don't even remember their names show how forgettable they are. Welcome your typical hero and heroine. The heroine is the typical 'I-wear-glasses-but-I'm-actually-pretty' girl and of course, once she takes those glasses off, every guy is mesmerised. The male lead is so dull. He's only good-looking, occasionally teases the girl and in the end, he freaking pressurises her. Nothing special.

Story ★★★
Average. Average. Average. Nothing unexpected happens. The same old plot devices. Nothing that hasn't been done yet. I'm not saying that a story has to be really original to be good. Old or popular ideas can be used but it's the way the mangaka brings it out to make it or break it.

Art ★★★★
Really depends on preference but I found the art to be cute and fluffy. I'm not gonna lie. It was the art that made be read the manga.

Read it if you have nothing else to read. Or else read a manga that's award-winning even though the art puts you off.

I really tried hard to get through this manga, but after the first few chapters, I felt like I was falling asleep... I really wanted to like this, but after the story was initially set, I just couldn't keep going. The first few chapters were funny enough because it was setting the foundation of the rest of the plot line. After that, I just wanted to skip to the end to see them together at the end. Maybe other people might find it more entertaining, but it really wasn't for me.

the first few chapters is actually extremely good in my opinion, very funny and have great character interactions. but then halfway down the road, where they go to the other school, it become so typical and bland i am severely disappointed. it is not a bad manga at all, it just, it become so melodramatic, so sparkly, so shoujo, that it become quite tiring to read. however, this only have 4 vol, so it is still a passable short read.

I initially wanted to rate this series lower but as many others I have to admit the art is gorgeous.
Sadly, that's it. It also is what lured me in...I guess I need to stop being so shallow to read things just by cover.

I have to say... I have only fully read first 5 chapters. Every page I kept hoping the heroine would finally wake up and stopped being so awfully dumb and shallow. And stopped doing all those horrible things to him. Every page I suffered from that not happening. I thought I saw a ray of hope in fourth chapter since it seemed like she finally realized she doesn't want to lose him.....only to see her shortly after act awfully once again. And again. And again.
After the first 5 chapters I have skimmed through the rest and read the ending. I...can't really cover just how glad I was I didn't waste time on reading any more of it. There really is no depth to the story whatsover.

The story started out strong and original, but in recent plot development, the ludicrously easy-to-take-advantage-of main characters have been exploited in to horridly predictable and unbelievable circumstances
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Rival actor/model tricks female lead into signing a "producer" contract with company but literally crosses out producer and writes in talent. Yeah. Seems legit. -_-
that the series is losing my favor, and if the forums are any indication, or the rest of the fan base as well.

Let's hope the author can turn it around quick before it continues down this poor path.

It's a light manga where it's full of cute although pretty cliche scenes. Sometimes it's like when you're eating a really sweet candy and because it too sweet, you can't really appreciate the taste.

Light and fluffy. Some people like it, some people don't. Depends on your taste
