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.

This manga is my favorite, it's completely different from all the mangas I have ever read! Kyouko's character is something really amusing. It's a very, highly addictive manga and I am definetly going to collect the whole thing!

I only picked up this series because it was adverised in almost all the other mangas I was reading, and I am so glad I did. Although the drawing style is awkward at times (although the outfit designs rock), I love this series! I love the fact that Kyouko does actually stumble on her quest for revenge/fame. The characters are so realistic and wordly, not to mention funny. I found myself in the bookstore the other day, staring at the books going "hm, I love that chapter in that volume, but that story continues on into that volume, so I guess I'll get both. But I also love that chapter, and that one, and that one!" Sadly, I did not have enough cash to buy the series, and this is coming from a chronic miser. Read Skip Beat!!

I love this manga. At first I wasn't really interested, because the art didn't look that great.(the image above, hmm xD) But when I read it, the art wasn't that bad, and the story totally blew me away xD hah
No matter, how many times I re-read the manga, it never fails to make me laugh! ^^ probably because of the heroine!

I think all the praise for Skip Beat! that I want to say has been said already, but I have to say, it's one of the funniest mangas I've read. I lost count of how many times I cracked up (especially at the scenes between Ren and Kyouko! -pffffft- C-chicken...! Prince...!) by the 3rd volume, and I just kept wanting more! I'm not too fond of the plot, but the comedy and the great characters keep me going. Ah, Ren. I laugh every time he does his 'gentlemanly smile' with Kyouko in the vicinity. xD

I gave Skip Beat a try after hearing and reading great reviews about it.Here is what I found after reading three plus volumes of it, 1) the plot drags, 2) the comedy is weak and the way the characters are drawn is at times awakard. I was expecting more out of this series after reading the rave reviews. Now, keep in mind I only read three volumes so far. Perhaps, the plot gets much better lets say around volume 10 and on up. But so far from what I read Skip Beat seems boring,

I think I've reread Skip Beat for at least 10x's already. And I still laugh at all those little funny parts, go "yay Kyouko!" for all her great acting scenes ( xD ) , and struggle not to shriek when i see shou. (yes, i know. shou? but, what can i say? i never like main male interests.. although kyouko's more scared of ren...)

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.
