Description
It's the start of high school, and Kako decides to "produce" her bookworm of a childhood friend, Kousei, so that he can become a good-looking and popular school idol. She models him after Lawrence, a character in a manga she likes, but as Kousei's transformation becomes a huge success and he extends his new character beyond what she asks for, what will Kako do? Will she find herself left behind in the wake of his newly found popularity?

IT'S BISHIE TIME!!!!   
Rating: 7.6 / 10.0

This isn't your award-winning shoujo by any means...but if your looking for a cute, fun, romantic shoujo you've come to the right place. It's full of cliches, a few stupid hairstyles, and the huge-ass frogs kind of freak me out, but despite it's imperfections I like it. The main guy ins't that perfect, charming suave type, but the naturally handsome, immature type. I recommend it for those who need a shoujo fix like chocolate fixes. It's cute biggrin For the times that you think it will get worse, trst me, it is getting better! I can see a good ending coming soon smile
*Also...did I mention it's full of bishounen confused

Shoujo Manga Done Right

Story so far:
Kaako doesn't really care if people call her plain and a country bumpkin. What sets off her buttons is the fact that people mock & underestimate her childhood friend, Kousei, for being from the country. What people don't know however is that under all the 'country-bumpkiness' hides the face of a prince. Kaako knowing full well of Kousei's charisma decides to 'produce' him into a star whom everyone would look up to as well as to show the people who mocked him before. Kousei, on the other hand, does not really care what people think but in order to please Kaako with whom he is in love with, goes along with the her plans of world domination, no matter how kooky it may be as long as they are together.

Sugary sweet, pretty boys at every turn, strong multi-faceted hero & heroine, beautiful art and a little something to make it 'different' (awesome childhood-friendship-story), what more could you ask for from a shoujo manga? It's a good read in the likes of Ouran, Gakuen Alice, Skip Beat, et al.

4 volume

I'm reading this manga since the beginning and i LOVED the first volume but now it's getting kinda boring. The art is nice, this is a cute story but it's too much centred on appearance and all the clichés that come along. So apparently it's going to be only 4 volumes (comment below) and i'm glad about that, it needs to end now before that everyone lost interest. If not then the storyline needs to be changed so it can be more entertaining. If there were 10 more volume in production i think that i'll have left it for now and start to read it from volume 8 or something like that.

I'm a little disappointed that it only has four volumes sad
I pictured this manga as more long lasting and though 4 vols may seem a lot to some people, I find it short. But overall the art is wonderful as everyone below has started and the story is (so far) very cute ^^.

The Art is hot! Story is progessing well

The art is wonderful. Hot bishounen!! The pace of the story is pretty good. The female protagonist is somewhat a clueless girl but isn't a total push over and she's learning along the way. The male protagonist.-If you're into that overprotective totally in love with you type. Totally makes your heart flutter. This is so your manga. I am dying waiting for the latest chapters! This series is like the reverse of Skip Beat! Yagami Kousei (male protagonist) stays true to his roots and best friend Kahara Kako (female protagonist).

The plot could be interesting, but it gets boring. It's all been done before. It would be better if the dude didn't change his character every five seconds. Too much is too much.
The art's nice, though.

A BREATH OF FRESH AIR

i can't believe that i laughed my heart out from reading this manga.
it was just so funny how they poked fun of shoujo mangas.
read the first chapter and you'll know what i mean.

anyway, my comment really is:
in just two chapters, Mishounen Produce was able to capture my attention and got me terribly hooked.
yeah, it is typical shoujo, but it is still something different.
the series created a new twist to the same old shoujo storyline.

and wait, i haven't even mentioned about the bishounens here.
aw. just to hot to handle. XD

the girl is a bishoujo, too.
i guess people from far away rural areas are really hot then?

this is definitely recommended.
read and discover what this manga has to offer!

Stunning Art

Only two chapters have been released so far - but one thing I must say is that the art is absolutely stunning. Maybe even the best I've seen out of ALL the manga I've read. And that's a whole lot >.>

I can't really judge the plot so far, but it seems pretty typically shoujo (: The bishies are completely drool-worthy. I'd say one of the cutest moments is when the main character says "I'll never produce you".

Can't wait for the main heroine to go through her transformation - and have all the boys swooning for her <3 I didn't even recognize her with her hair down xD

This manga is so cute! XD I've never noticed how different manga characters look with different hair until I read this manga! XD I always though "Did the mangaka really draw the character's face the same way or different?" since they looks so different with their hair down. XD
