Description
Kyouko Mogami lived solely for her childhood friend Shoutaro "Shou" Fuwa. She follows Shou to Tokyo so that he may realize his dream of becoming a famous singer. When his dream is realized, Kyouko overhears the truth behind his decision to bringing her with him: he was using her as a maid.

Shocked and enraged, Kyouko swears to take revenge by outdoing him in show business. With a new look and a new attitude, she joins LME, the agency where Ren Tsuruga (Shou's rival and the #1 actor of LME) works, in the hopes of achieving her goal of destroying Shou's pride.

Along the way, she discovers her true self, makes new friends (and enemies), and finds herself at the heart of some interesting situations that will change her life, and the lives of all others involved, forever.

the thickness of the plot and the depth of the characters are overall very excellent. I love stories that suck me in. and this has done just that

At first, I was kind of confused by the manga and the style of the mangaka (which is different from what im used to). But as i read on, i find myself laughing out loud. The female lead is actually really lovable. The different situations and actions the character do are hilarious, even though it's a bit unreal. This is one of my favourite series that i just can get tired of.

There is a risk with any 19 volume and ongoing manga that it's going to get stale after a while. The first few volumes of Skip Beat were pretty good, but for a while it didn't look like the story was really going anywhere. Then around volume 9 when the Dark Moon storyline starts things really pick up, and the pace is maintained all the way through what has currently been released.

I can sum up this manga in one word... wow!
It is so rare now for me to come across a a manga like this. Though I used to like shoujos I got so sick of the same plot over and over again that I almost gave up on the genre. But this is so worth reading! Everything about it, from the story to the characters is very unique and well worth the hours I spent reading.

The characters: Along with Tsukasa (done by the same author), Kyoko is one of my favorite Shoujo heroines. Sure she's into fairies, princesses and has a weird imagination but shes also smart, strong and determined to get what she wants. Whats best about her is that, rather than cry over the guy that dumped her, she's determined to get revenge. However, though she still wants to get even with the guy who dumped her, shes comes to realize that acting is what she truly loves and wants to do. She does it for herself, which is a nice change from other shoujo plots where a girl would go into a career to purely chase another guy.

Ren and Sho: gotta say they both qualify as my favorite heroes! It's ironic since even though they are famous, the mangaka made them so they both exibit personalities different from their true characters. Ren keeps up a 'nice guy' facade, but we occasionally see glimpses of his real character which seem to show his darker side, though I gotta say his fake smiles are hilarious!. Sho (the guy who dumped Kyoko), on the other hand, constantly maintains a 'cool guy' persona, which of course as readers we know is fake. He laughs at weird shows, hates certain foods and secretly listens to the comments of fans to reassure himself of his 'coolness'.

lol. I went longer than I intended, so all I'm gonna say is read it! it is so worth pulling an all nighter for...

This one is definitely on top of my favorite mangas. I just love the way the story goes and I really can't wait for more releases to see what'll happen next. The characters and the story are really great. I couldn't stop reading 'till I finished all the chapters there are at the moment. And I sooooo want to read more of it!!! And besides it's the only one I've read 3-4 times already in a very short period of time. Every shoujo-lover out there should try this, it really is good and not the way most of other mangas the same genre are, but different and really refreshing (although I still like the "normal" type of shoujo manga, too.). So try this out!

This manga has a great and unique story and so far well developed characters. The art is very good and the expressions are well brough out. Really, it's not your typical shoujo where it's predictable; it actually has depth and it takes things slow so that actual growth can happen!

I personally recommend this manga to any shoujo lover out there who is looking for something new and refreshing!

Icredible storyline, loveable characters, hilarious moments and bits of romance, the perfect recipe for an entertaining time, this has really got to be one of my favourite manga, and its not even finished yet xD
Btw, it's become my drug. I'm 110% addicted =]
I can't wait to see how the story will end (well... i hope it doesnt, even though i know that someday it will *crys*)
