Nakazono Kirara is dumb, Hanamaki is a bastard - and if a girl allows men to treat her like that, then what's the chance of a good story or should I say who would care about what happens to her?! Sorry, this manga is rubbish. Aine from Kaikan Phrase is just a bit better (still stupid, but)!

Well, I just couldn't hold back after reading so many of these! And instead of being COMPLETELY biased based on the ‘s’ word, I’ll give it to you (the reader) as best as I can. I have heard a lot about Kaikan Phrase, which is a much better read plot wise, and I must say I truly do like Sakuya’s style, wit, and charm. But it takes a little more than a read or two to realize this story’s greatness.

If this book is in the category of drama, it should be! The amount of problems these two come across is ridiculous! But it’s to be expected… After all, a rich guy marrying a commoner? How many fairytales have we read that in before? So it is more than easy to see where one would get on the stand and preach its atrocity. And it’s never easy doing so. So, now. We have the common shoujo female bully, we have the oh so common harem appeal. (I mean, I’ve read a lot of shoujo and I’ve never seen so many bishies put toether in one shoujo in my life~! Well, maybe not NEVER, but you get my point)

But I must agree on a few things here and their… Yes, this book’s theme song, like a lot of other of Shinjou’s work is: “Let’s Talk About Sex” but this book was clearly written on the note of unrealistic, and first and foremost comedy. When you see all of those things you can’t help but think: ‘Well, damn!’ and, ‘Ooh, FAIL!’, and not to mention, ‘Oh my freaking gawd!!! I want to kill him!’, also ‘Awww..’, or ‘I want one!’ It’s just human, erm, girlie nature! Now, I tell this story a lot better than she does~ BUT! The element of surprise, yet predictability is still there. It’s a classic, unoriginal, comedic love story about two idiots who rushed into love. And the extra with Sakuya’s Production was priceless. I still laugh. (I laughed when I wrote this by the way…)

No girl in their right mind would want a love like this one; however, I don’t recommend men to read this story at all, even if they are homosexual. The practicality of love just isn’t there. It is in all of its greatness a funny, funny, funny story. But it’s not for everyone. You have to look for the little things to get the big things and you have to restore your mind to a teenager’s point of view. And if you are an adult, what the hell are you doing reading this anyway?! Go watch the news or something… Anyway… I absolutely adore Fujiwara, Ginzou’s oblivious nature and his horrible taste when it comes to love. I also love his innocence. And I read that Kirara was the innocent one which is definitely not in comparison with Gin’s because his innocence is totally pure and totally there. He’s a boy who was led astray by the sexual perversity that became his older brother figure… I suppose. But Kirara’s no saint. Saints do not own dirty manga… In any case, her overly dramatic weakness is probably Shinjou’s way of expressing the need for a weak, weak, weak female lead. We see it in all her works. From the Sexy Guardian, to Haou Airen, all the way to Sex=Love². (The last one is also a great read humor wise… Much like this one!)

Elvis and A TEENS told us fools rush in… This book, like a fool, one should definitely rush in. Because only then will you understand how this book is truly great. Not because of the fan service, or the constant rose petals in the back ground. Mayu Shinjou openly knows how to make you laugh. Whether it is in a ‘Well, damn!’ kind of way, or a ‘S***, that was funny!’. So, are you prepared for the comedy of the century? I don’t know. Whether you want to criticize it and laugh at how corny it is, or how unwell written the plot is, be my guest… But not a person!! Not one! Who has truly read it for what it is can argue the fact that this comic, err, manga is funny as hell!

Much to do about nothing~

The thing about this manga is that it's terrible. It really is. All of the characters are shallowly defined by one word apiece. Gin is sex. Kirara is weak. Hanamaki is... I don't know what he is. He flip-flops between jealous and bastardly.

But at the same time, I found myself laughing a lot while reading this. Partially at how bad it is... mostly at how bad it is. But until it gets ridiculously repetetive, if you can deal with the SEX (in caps for sheer amount), you may get a few laughs, too.

The only thing i actually liked was the ending, and how characters from her other work was included.

One character annoyed me at first which was the manager. but i ended up liking him. hmph! i also like how Gin is different with sakuya, from kaikan phrase. He respects him, not the way he is with others.
but sad to say i dont have mch great things to say about the whole storyline.

and the kaikan phrase featuring. thats probably one of my favourite part of the manga. i like the part that theyre still inlove. and with a son and another bby coming on the way. cliched i know, but hey it was one of the first mangas i read and loved at the same time.

Once again i have to agree with many commentors.
This is a great example of Shinjo's basic shoujo smut sxe rape love and happy ending in one big jabba the hut.
The beginning was okayy though it had smut from the start and so i just felt like it didnt have heart. The manager is such a freaky douchebag! I ended up liking him in the end but my first impression of him was u modafuka letting a young girl who wanaa be in business get sxe appeal? i knoe its her choice but damn u for providing lessons if needed!

continuing, like Shinjo's other mangas, she ends up falling in love (surprisingly he doesnt rape her GASP GASP!!) but he wants to fuk her badd like duhh. The hotel scene and jewels was wat touched my heart first and then the thing where she retires but then is with the other guy and she has a comback performance and gets back with her politician boyy hahah <3 that was cute.

So i wudnt say it was too bad.. I think the middle and ending part was more exciting to me, the beginning chapters where pretty cliched, gave the background of her life and the drama da dee daah.
I loved how Kaikan Phrase was twisted in and it was a good read too smile

If you take this piece more as a comedy than drama, you will really enjoy it. The plot goes from one place to the next, which won't make too much sense, but if you just go with the flow and if you don't dwell too much on the fact that nothing seems to be logically explained... it's actually pretty funny.

I'm sorry I loved it. Yes I hated the characters at some points, but you can't beat the overall story. I can't help but love it. Plus the spiced up parts where the other characters intervened.Ohhhh Damn I love Sakuya!

It was a little more easy flowing than the other stories she's written. I mean Gin was all "Forgive and forget" So there was nothing I found so annoying about his character. Kirara on the other hand was just so innocent at times. Of course that quickly faded (Kinda) She was okay near the end though.

I absolutely loved Hanamaki. And his ending line was priceless. He was just so funny at parts that O couldn't help but think he was awesome.

The only thing that got me is with her other stories she wraps everything up. Every little character comes back to do something drastic. Like in Hauo Airen. For those who've read, you know what I mean. The ending. But remember that one guy in chapter, I don't know, 13 or something. The one with the scar on his face. You know, that random guy who swore revenge on Gin. I was seriously freaking about when that would come back and bite this love story in the ass. And when it came to the last chapter, oh wow. I'm just glad it's over. (In a good way)

If you love Shinjo Mayu's work you might was well read this one. I hope I didn't give anything away. If so I am servilely sorry. I don't mean to.

I liked the end, and that's the most important part of the story.

Lovely, cute and very touching. I love how this is a type of prelude to Kaikan Phrase, you get to see Sakuya and Aine years after and thriving with their love. XD
Gin is so very sweet and cute, just as Kaikan Phrase was worth all the time it took to read it, so is Love Celeb. Though the characters are sex-crazed it didn't seem too obsessive because there was always a reason behind it and the way Gin was lusting after Kirara since the first volume was hilarious. A wolf in sheep's clothing, and a delectable bunny. XD I don't consider this one of her downfalls, but rather one of her best works, because it's so cute and lovely.

the plot was pretty interesting and the character were individual in their own ways however im not happy with the amount of sex in it and yes i no it's by shinjo mayu but there is a limit when it comes to smut. when the plot is almost totally taken over by sexual advances it isn't good. still, its the same with this mangaka...

It was funny and intresting in the first few volumes, but its been down hill since she started getting sexually pushed towards other guys.

This manga is no different than 100% perfect girl.

Sensual Phrase is a far cry from this crap. It has better cliche drama.
