I love this story I have never been able to connect so well with a character I totally know what the character's personality is because it is mine always being over looked only seen as a stepping stone and knowing that a writer could write about this makes me so happy. I really hope she continues the story because I will be so sad if she doesn't. this id the only series I think I can actually read over again.
First - Hopefully I can really continue and finish this comment one day, when the story isn't on hiatus anymore and has come to an end. Till then, there's the [tbc] ... Sighs~ .*.*.*.*.*.*.
Beginning with the drawing style of AIHARA Miki, it's simple and therefore matching the story so far quite well. You get your cute, puppy-eyed main character and quite attractive guys, while the backgrounds are kept without any unnecessary details.
Coming to the storyline, there are surely some flaws and weaknesses, that are well-known in the Shoujo genre. People loving a reverse harem scenario and crybaby protagonist will get their expectations fullfilled, but the character growth and development of the story itself is yet not really remarkable. Anyways, since it's still unfinished, this might change ... Who knows?
For me a few scenes made me smile and got me attached, so I will try to be patient and keep my hopes. If you are interested in those, then ...
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Chapter 8's park scene was just catchy. When Q-ta was counting backwards on the phone and showing up in the right moment with that typical attitude, I somehow ended up grinning. Honestly, is that guy not awesome? Haha. And - Although one can argue about the kissing scene on the staircase, the onsen math attack in order to calm down also is another example of that guys quirky yet charming touch.
As for Haruka - The plan to use his live and the projected image he has there for getting the girl, was expressing the mean guy outside and cute kid inside feel he had kinda well. Also, I liked it, when he went crazy about his battery dying before he could finish the dialogue he plannend out before. Kkk.
Very similar to Hot Gimmick but it Good.
The only thing thats different is her role. she is a model. She very naive and very clumsy girl, which we seem a lot from other stories espically clamp, but he it does't mean that they aren't cute. I find the story very intersting and I want to see more. MIKI PLEASE CONTINUE THIS SERIES! I MUST READ MORE!
Pretty Good. Keeps me reading
I don't know where, everyone is talking about the ending when the series is not even over yet. The series is on break so I don't think they are reading the same manga. But Anyway. To me, I very much adore this series. I find it very similar to Hot gimmick in some way but I like it. The heroine is trying to vecome a model, which is a trait kind of pass on to her parents but she grows up little to little to gain exprenice as she learns the things about being a model. The boy who she seem to be in love with is a mystery because she doesnt know if she love her because for her or just one to get one step closer to get to her father which he admires almost. the twin brother Haruka seems to have also have so feelings for her as he stole her first kiss. He didn't seem to have careness for her at first but when he sees he as a different person thorugh being a model, he wants to make her hism even though she loves the other twin brother. The manger, indeed cares for her as well, but he also in love with her. (Kind weird) but is seems to be a father figure, which he comes to realize it himself.
Through it all I have to see this series, is very intersting and full of series, which I just can't want to see how it turns it out, as I continue to wait for the author to be off from break and finish her series.

It rocky but it got there
It was good until chapter 8 then it got boring and I lost interest and stated scanning through bits and pieces but then it picked up again and I loved it give it a chance is all I can say hehe . P.s don't judge a book by its cover - the ending
Let's start with the art. It's not super amazing. But it's cute. Quite simple.
Then the whole Skip Beat comparison. I'm not really a Skip Beat fan, and I don't find Kyoko to be as amazing as most people say (though she's a decent heroine unlike most) but she's definitely way more impressive than Yura, who doesn't exactly have a personality/spine. The premise isn't trying to rip off SB. They're just both about the same industry, and SB is more successful by far, so comparison is unavoidable. That's all. Oh, and the whole evil mom thing in this manga is a little unrealistic, but then again I didn't expect much realism anyways so I wasn't that bothered by it.
The brothers in here are cute and all, but nothing totally memorable either. To be honest I only started this series because I heard Haruka was based off Akanishi Jin from KAT-TUN, whom I absolutely adore. I was curious. It's kinda of personal thing for me though, why I kept reading just for that little detail. But now that I've run out of chapters, I'm not really interested in more. It's really nothing special. Just okay for shoujo fans. I admit I'm more of a shoujo critic, so I gave it a lower rating because it's really mediocre from a critical standpoint, but you could very well enjoy it. Just depends.
i loved this ! i got really excited and hyper the whole time. i had a lot of reactions which only happens in good manga/anime. i like the characters, but not all. sometimes, some characters got really annoying. like how q'ta gets included with yura too much. it doesn't really make me all excited since she never worked too hard to get him, and plus, he went for her just for her father, right? well i know that changed overtime, but when he was with yura, he never showed a lot of expressions, it was as if he was still being a player. i'm completely aware that he really loves her, but sometimes it gets annoying. i prefer his brother, haruka. im not too sure why. i guess he's kinder and doesn't include himself with too many girls. it was hard to get him to like yura since he never really has an interest in girls as much as q'ta. i dislike how there's a 3rd guy in it. shachou. 2 guys liking her is kind of enough. i think 3's too much. and plus, he's her manager. and he doesn't look good with yura. he's kind of old and mature and too fatherly/brotherly like.
though, overall, i like it. i like mangas where the main character strives to get stronger for a goal. in this case, it was to reach higher than her mother in showbiz world. they're super cool >.<
i cant wait for more

what in the world
I was hoping that the girl would some how be a female lead in the manga not a poor,shy, push over who is practically kissed by every guy! the guys in the story are controlling and never consider her feelings. and then she thinks it's here fault that the guys treat her this way. the manga is really sexist
It's okay - in some ways.
For a romance that is, and I like angsty romances. In this one, it's not the show business aspect that takes the forefront though, it's the romance. The show business aspect seems to be used as a plot device to further the romance of main pairing, which at the moment seems to be Yura and one of the twins. So, if you are looking for acting development of the main character, you most likely won't find it here. Thus, it is certainly no skip beat, as many who have read this one will probably demonstrate. While some aspects are certainly the similar, the characters, the plot - and the initial motivation for entering show biz are the same (although to be fair, the art is better), it just dosen't hold a candle to it's more developed counterpart. If fact, there are so many similarities that it couldn't possibly be a coincidence. While this isn't necessarily a bad thing (after all, people in the entertainment industry copy each other all the time), the way it is used here annoys me slightly. The show biz aspect, to me, could have been handled far better in terms developing the romance if thats what the mangaka was going for. For example, does Yura and Q'ta shows any signs of growing as a couple and as individuals from being in the industry? Nope, not at all, and throughout the story it only gets worse, especially as Q'ta becomes more possessive and Yura's initial motivation to get revenge on her mother is instead replaced by door-mat like tendencies as she lets others (especially Q'ta), trample all over her.
Perhaps I am being a bit unfair with Yura's character, but image this scenario - Kyoko and Yura are in a room with a good-looking male character. On one side, if this male character tried to seduce Yura, the most likely conclusion would be a successful seduction, with a blushing, crying damsel in distress as a result. If, on the other hand, the male character went to seduce Kyoko instead - the end result would be far different. Kyokos solution to this would be 1) sic her demons on him and 2) high-tail it from the room. Effectively, it would be the male character left as the red-faced, crying mess - after Kyoko had finished with him, of course.
To conclude, if you want pure campy shoujo romance with good art - go for it. Honey Hunt is okay, not horrible,but enough that I will hold out in the hopes there is going to be some plot and character development when Aihara Miki picks this back up from hiatus. Still, if you were looking for a show biz manga with a combination of character and plot development, where romance was present but not central to the story - I'd recommend Glass Mask, Skip beat and The One.

Worst. Ending. Ever.
I reckon fans of this series will be very disappointed in the ending and the author. I mean i was really disappointed and frustrated that the ending was just like that and was hoping there could be more. But, omg! I was hoping to see her progressing or something. but whatever, at least it sort of didn't end like other shoujo mangas.
