Pretty Cute!

I was very intrigued of the plot synopsis and read the whole story in one sitting. It's sweet, NOT clingy (which I really really like!), and quite believable too!
Although, the twist in the end sounds a bit too good to be true (a little bit TOO arranged?), I enjoyed the series very much!
The ending wasn't quite how I thought it would end, but I'm satisfied with what I got!
This is worth a read especially if you have nothing else to do :-)

This manga was really good. It's quite refreshing to see a female lead who isn't immature or crying all the time (I don't think she even cried :s). The story also moved fast and captivated my attention. It was great to read about how a mangaka works, and about the stresses that come with that job. It makes you realize just how admirable mangakas really are. It was really nice to read about adults who had real lives and real careers. My only complaint is that there weren't that much "bonding moments" between the two characters (seeing as they're both busy), in that department I felt the romance was kinda lacking, but it does not deviate from the fact that this was an enjoyable read. smile

But i felt that it ended too FAST. It should and could have prolong a little bit longer, the beginning and middle portion were smooth sailing, but the ending was just a teensy bit disappointing. Nevertheless, I love her drawing, it's just how i like it ^-^, a fan of hers already.

I agree with Darknemo2000 .
After reading 2 volumes, I felt sort of 'empty'.. the story isn't really very interesting and I just read on to see if there's anything interesting but there's none.
It's lacking in the story plot and character's personality.

The art in the manga wasn't bad. In fact, it's nice. Pleasant to the eyes.
The only thing that's nice for this series .... - i guess.

Very plain couple - girl doesnt have much personality, nor does the guy - their relationship is dull and not even build up properly. Ending was even more horrible. The artwork is good, but that's basically it - one cliche after another, dull characters, boring relationship - this is a mediocre manga to it's core. It is not awful but it is not goo either. Just a mediocre manga, that you should read only if you have a time to waste.

Soft Josei

I don't read much josei. However i feel this josei is so close to be shoujo.The story is so soft (all others seinen,josei i read up till now are all serious plot).It's just about 2 female mangakas normal life & love. I like this manga but i feel it's just too short,only 2 volumes, and the ending is come too soon.Maybe because this is story of mangaka so story is go deep in daily life of mangaka more than build/show relationship between main protagonist.

This is one of my favorite manga titles where my love for both the leads did not waver from the beginning until the end. The artwork is wonderful and though the plot may have its own twists and turns, it's considerable realistic. The characters in the story are all easy to come in terms with.

However, I find the ending rather abrupt. The ending didn't even give a proper conclusion whether the leads' relationship is due for a long term or not. Nevertheless, I find "Spicy Pink" really amusing.

I just wonder why it's named "Spicy Pink", though.
