Spoiler (highlight to view)
I've read some of Shinjo Mayu's works before and I usually never liked them because of the raping/stupid leading heroine. In this one, although there is the whole "I'M GIN AND I'M A VIRGIN KILLER AND I WANT TO HAVE SEX WITH YOU" part, it seemed less like rape to me, which always annoyed me in her other mangas, and more like they actually liked each other. Something I thought was kinda weird was the fact that the side characters were in-and-out in a few chapters and then you never see them again. Well, except for the manager at the end. I mean does anyone even remember Kouki? (I think that was his name at least :p ) Overall, there were some parts that I had to push myself through to get to the end, but I liked this one better than her other works because:

1. It was more love than rape (I mean Shinjo-san even refrained from them having sex for the first couple volumes!!!! There were still some "o.O" scenes though if you know what I'm saying).
2. Gin was SUPER CUTE! He was obsessed with her and totally in love!
3. If for no other reason, just read this to look at Chibi Gin. I'M NOT JOKING IT IS THE CUTEST THING EVER!

--Just as a side note: "Would I read this again?" Probably not, but it was an interesting read if you ignore all of the ridiculous information (like having sex to get a job in the show biz, the stock market thing with uhh what's-his-name? Takano?, and one HIGH SCHOOL guy controlling all of Japan). Lol, I kinda have conflicting feelings now that I'm looking back on everything...

Look, after readin Haou Airen, i wasn't sure if i cud trust SHINJO again with another of her mangas (also read Sensual Phrase which was probably the one with a little less sex than Love Celeb since it had music in it too & Love Strip -- useless, no good for sex education manga that makes those swoon if your looking for geeky-sex girls and horny jocks).

When i read Haou Airen, i was like, "Oh what a surprise, sex on the first chapter although its not finished,"
Then "Oh, rape by random guys looking at her private parts, fabulous,"
With marfia gangs and sex addicts, it was terrible although yea yea, the romance was something unusual but pretty strong and i did cry when the damn guy got killd before his wedding, i mean i'd be a freakn heartless chick if i didn't.

LOVE Celeb is something that you shud expect has sex, sex for fame, sexual abuse from OWN manager, sex bought from diamonds and oh, did i mention sex?

What im saing is there are some people who like this manga nad i respect your taste in smut, i prefer some smut as a regular intake in my manga too, but there are some mangas which are so unrealistic, with so much sex, i sometimes even wonder how this thing gets through the first 20 percent of ratings.
Look, i accpet that they labelled this as SMUT and i knew from the beginning that there will be some sort of sexual intercourse but give me a break, some of SHINJO's works are becoming disgusting and so unbelievable that i can't stick to read the finals of Sensual Phrase (although im having a feeling its gonna end soon becoz im past where he is marrying her).


Anyway read this manga if you want because i guess things depend on what people like in their mangas, but im just saying, it wasn't terrific so i giv it a very generous 5.

This is one of the worst mangas I've ever read, and that's saying a lot. bigrazz The story was uninteresting and the characters stupid. Many of the posts below have already given lots of reasons why to stay away from this terrible manga, so I'm not gonna list them myself.

But really, don't read this, there'r so many better series.

Seriously, I only read this because the art was good.
The guys keep saying they love the girls but all they do is sex, and sex, and well pretty much sex... Its like the whole world is all about sex
I dont even get why the main character from Haou Airen was there.

It's bad. After reading some of her previous works, I have to say I don't know what I expected from this one. I think it was all hope that Shinjo Mayu-sensei would change her usual ways and... break out of her shell. Oh, boy, was I wrong.

I dropped this one faster than a hot potato for a few reasons:

1) The girl was just plain stupid. Think Haou Airen. Remember her? Yeah, they're competeing for the title of Most Stupid Protagonist Ever.

2) This manga scares any female wanting to go into show biz, period. (I have to use my body to make a song?! What?! Where did the talent searchers go~~)

3) Rape is so glorified in here it's sickening. Again, think Haou Airen in the beginning. If you catch my drift, you catch my drift.

4) I just wanted to slam my head into a brick wall. It irks me when the female protagonist wasn't ever noticed by any guy before, but when she dates main hot guy over here, man, the boys just start going insane! It's a palooza to see who can get her body first, no aftermath involved. And, of course, usually male saves her at the most crucial of moments, so no worries there.

Every thing else Hermit-chan, vampiremaddy, InLibrisLibertas and surabhi147 have gone over; in fact, I probably have gone the points they already listed, but if you haven't dropped / walked the other way at those few comments, I might as well break it down again.

You know something's wrong with it when more than 5 people are listing the same problems over and over again.

Gave it a 2 for the art, Shinjou Mayu-sensei does draw some hot characters and some okay-looking women; also, I fell in love with chibi Gin, he was insanely cute. =D

No seriously, I don't understand what was going through my mind when I picked this up and saw it through the last chapter!! What is wrong with me??

It was kinda amusing the whole Gin-Kirara thing (esp. Gin debating over why he was so obssessed with her) but then...it was pretty unrealistic how some characters just jumped out of nowhere and the manager was such an asshole...and the girl. Don't even get me started on Kirara...she's as dumb and dim-witted as they come, no redeeming value what so ever. And then the plot line which deteriorated with every passing chapter and the story became harder to believe. :rolls eyes:

But, yes, it did have few cute scenes and chibi Gin is SOOOO cute!!! biggrin That's the only reason I'm giving it a 3.

And, I agree with Hermit-chan, InLibrisLibertas and vampiremaddy whole heartedly. I'd have added their points in here but they've explained it well enough.

I seriously don't understand the ones who have given this manga 1's or 2's. THEY ARE CRAZY!!!!


This manga is wonderful! Great art, Gin is so cool and cute. Kirara is hopeless yet strong.

There are so many funny scenes and also smutty ones which makes you go KYAAAAKYAAKYAAA!!!

Read it! You won't regret it! wink

NOTE: probably some spoilers ahead, but I don't know what the bbcode for that is; sorry e-e.

"Shinjo Mayu" is basically synonymous with "pointless smut" and I think we all knew that coming into Love Celeb, but she has reached a new low with this one.

Glorified rape and weak, naive (read: just plain stupid) heroines are her trademarks but in the end, everything usually pans out somewhat acceptably and that's probably the only reason she has any fans (or so I would hope, as the idea of girls buying into and truly enjoying this crap is too terrifying to even consider).

But I draw the line at the turn this story has most recently taken. Shinjo's females have never been wholesome or bright, but Kirara is basically whoring herself out to anyone who poses even a minimal threat to Gin, who she is supposed to "love." She doesn't stop to think of other ways out of the messes they get into; she simply opens her legs to solve every problem they face, trying to justify it by claiming it to be the only way.

Usually whenever one of Shinjo's heroines is faced with a rival male trying to stake his claim on her body, she makes at least some effort to refuse and resist but such is not the case with Love Celeb.

Kirara simply rolls over and lets any and every sex-crazed man have his way with her, and even goes so far as give her actual love (completely forsaking Gin, to whom it is supposed to belong) to someone she barely knows and who has been terrorizing her for as long as he's been present in the manga.

For as much role as she plays, she might as well not even be an actual character; she is truly nothing but a sexual object and the worst part is that she consciously made herself that way. Shinjo could've replaced her with a blowup doll and then at least this manga wouldn't be so insulting to anyone without a Y chromosome.

There are limits, and I hope this is something Shinjo will finally come to realize.

This manga is pretty poor. I really dislike the heroine, she may be slightly stronger than others but I'd prefer a different heroine, who seems more in keeping with Shinjo's traditional "blushing virgin" stereotype.
You can't mix the two characters together - it doesn't work. She has to go one way or the other.

Some of Shinjo's works are okay - I don't mind a little bit of it now and again, in small doses. Kaikan Phrase was rather sweet. But man, I've completely lost interest in this story...

Shinjo completely oversimplifies show business - the idea that anyone good looking and wealthy can get into politics and become prime minister is utterly ridiculous. Either she is partially retarded, or she doesn't give a damn about her blatant made-up fairytale land.

Hermit-chan's comment completely sums it up.
This manga is awful.
