This girl is so mis- guided in life
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
she thinks it's normal to do sexual things with her manager..
Plus falling for a guy that wants to run her life.. Then getting wet over others so easily while this guy runs around trying to keep her safe.. Too stupid too naive..
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
The only thing that made this story cool was to have the guy from Kaiken phrase there.. I love that guy!

Once again i have to agree with many commentors.
This is a great example of Shinjo's basic shoujo smut sxe rape love and happy ending in one big jabba the hut.
The beginning was okayy though it had smut from the start and so i just felt like it didnt have heart. The manager is such a freaky douchebag! I ended up liking him in the end but my first impression of him was u modafuka letting a young girl who wanaa be in business get sxe appeal? i knoe its her choice but damn u for providing lessons if needed!

continuing, like Shinjo's other mangas, she ends up falling in love (surprisingly he doesnt rape her GASP GASP!!) but he wants to fuk her badd like duhh. The hotel scene and jewels was wat touched my heart first and then the thing where she retires but then is with the other guy and she has a comback performance and gets back with her politician boyy hahah <3 that was cute.

So i wudnt say it was too bad.. I think the middle and ending part was more exciting to me, the beginning chapters where pretty cliched, gave the background of her life and the drama da dee daah.
I loved how Kaikan Phrase was twisted in and it was a good read too smile

Lovely, cute and very touching. I love how this is a type of prelude to Kaikan Phrase, you get to see Sakuya and Aine years after and thriving with their love. XD
Gin is so very sweet and cute, just as Kaikan Phrase was worth all the time it took to read it, so is Love Celeb. Though the characters are sex-crazed it didn't seem too obsessive because there was always a reason behind it and the way Gin was lusting after Kirara since the first volume was hilarious. A wolf in sheep's clothing, and a delectable bunny. XD I don't consider this one of her downfalls, but rather one of her best works, because it's so cute and lovely.

Extremely Entertaining

If you take this piece more as a comedy than drama, you will really enjoy it. The plot goes from one place to the next, which won't make too much sense, but if you just go with the flow and if you don't dwell too much on the fact that nothing seems to be logically explained... it's actually pretty funny.

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 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.

One of the worst mangas I have ever read. The beginning was entertaining at first and even a bit cute, then it started to get repetitive: sex, sex, sex. Kirara really needs a backbone and needs to get real. I mean, a manager gives you sex lessons to better yourself. Really, you retarded idiot. Love Celeb portrays all guys as horny insects, living for sex; and Gin...for Pete's Sake, he'll become the country's leader? Really. And the entertainment scene, yeah, I doubt actresses become famous by giving up their bodies. Seriously. Mayu, please do a better job, for the sake of yourself and readers.

The stupidest smut manga there is

It's very plain and easy to understand, this manga is probably one of the worst smut shoujos I've read. (There as one more that was worst but this is still very high on the list.) The males are sex-drive jackasses and the women seem to like it. The female lead is weak, very, very, very weak. The male is an asshole and that's all there really is to it. No depth, no deeper meaning, no real plot line. Don't waste your time here. If you want a real acting-show biz manga that actually develops the characters, go to Skip Beat. Love Celeb...blah.

I'm sorry I loved it. Yes I hated the characters at some points, but you can't beat the overall story. I can't help but love it. Plus the spiced up parts where the other characters intervened.Ohhhh Damn I love Sakuya!

It was a little more easy flowing than the other stories she's written. I mean Gin was all "Forgive and forget" So there was nothing I found so annoying about his character. Kirara on the other hand was just so innocent at times. Of course that quickly faded (Kinda) She was okay near the end though.

I absolutely loved Hanamaki. And his ending line was priceless. He was just so funny at parts that O couldn't help but think he was awesome.

The only thing that got me is with her other stories she wraps everything up. Every little character comes back to do something drastic. Like in Hauo Airen. For those who've read, you know what I mean. The ending. But remember that one guy in chapter, I don't know, 13 or something. The one with the scar on his face. You know, that random guy who swore revenge on Gin. I was seriously freaking about when that would come back and bite this love story in the ass. And when it came to the last chapter, oh wow. I'm just glad it's over. (In a good way)

If you love Shinjo Mayu's work you might was well read this one. I hope I didn't give anything away. If so I am servilely sorry. I don't mean to.

I liked the end, and that's the most important part of the story.
