I suppose that I'll have a bit of a bias when I write this, especially because I QCed quite a bit of the beginning.

It's a manga that follows a girl's trials and tribulations. It's a light read. There are no life-ending plots, everything becomes a success in the end, it's much more of a comedy than a drama. However, as a musician, I can definitely relate to the struggles that make the success beautiful. And the nature of the struggles are captured very well and very accurately. The mangaka does a good job in keeping everyone entertained.

Yes, the art isn't that great. But the story is about the development of Yuu's career, not even that of her character. I would say because of that, the story is unique.

I've been reading this manga since almost near the beginning. I discovered it one day when going around mangafox and trying to find a good manga to read. I was bored, and I just decided to click and check it out. The summary was meh to me - I didn't really think I would find anything interesting about it. The drawing style too, was different from what I was used to, seeing as I tend to gravitate to check out what popular manga there are and the like.

Back then, there were only about a few chapters up or so, but when I finished about what I think was five chapters, I was already hooked. The characters didn't just jump in your faces and demand PAY ATTENTION TO ME - it was something else entirely. Subtle and wonderfully, they came into what I came to accept as realistic. I loved the flow of the story, and I was glad to see that romance wasn't really a set focus on it.

This story is about Yuu's ambition, what she goes through - everything is possible, how she sees things. Yuu made a little warm thing in my heart because she's just so likeable. I loved her characterization and her design, as well as how she reacted and her personality. She didn't react too demure, but she didn't act too reserved either - which is a good thing, I think.

The other characters too were awesome.

I strongly recommend it.

I like how the story is processing. It's true that the first volume was a bit on the boring side but it really advances and develops nicely. The drawings may need some warming up but I really like it. It kind of reminds me of Mars because the heroine looks alike biggrin . The more I read it, the more I like it. It's just so different from the other mangas that I read..

edit- WOAA where I left off... I thought there would be one more volume or so until the finale. But I had to wait for 4 more chapters until the finaleconfused Didn't see that coming.. it was SUCH great manga...^_^

.............because it does not need nasty characters to make the plot thrive, the drama isn't hyped with sound effects and the main girl, though has two hunks on her tow, doesnt have more than that..sure, there are the cliches but
Spoiler (highlight to view)
as her efforts to act were failing, I thought that if, just if the author was mature enough to make her not end up as an actress but as something else
- then this would be an amazing manga indeed! The mangaka knows her business, does not pretend that she knows everything and excessively blast the manga with dramatic imagery, she succeeds to impress even an experienced eye to enjoy the manga and be caught on...I rarely read manga nowadays getting tired of all the cliches and lack of new ideas- but this has brought me back to the manga world...

I love Glass Mask and thus would not think another acting manga would be as good, but this is amazing. I love the simplistic drawing style, and the innocence of the main character. What I love the most is the realism of the whole manga. It could be something that really happened. Nothing is forced and the progression is very natural. You know how sometimes it just seems ludicrous how the female lead is liked by more than one guy? Well here it seems completely normal. You can see how things change and you can tell what's going to happen, but it's so natural and so normal that you end up believing the whole bit. There's no extra emotions, no grand gestures. However, somewhere along the way it got addicting... very addicting... File this under the MUST READ category.

the art reminds me so much of Itazura na Kiss that I almost thought it was previously made by the same mangaka. But alas, its not. The story is captivating though it takes a bit of time. I hope they are able to finish scanlating the whole project.

o my god i love this manga so much! it's one of the best josei i've come across. the drawing style to me is appealing also, although it may not be everyone's cup of tea. it's very character driven and each character has their own strengths and weaknesses that it gives an overall realistic feel. the romance in here is surprisingly subtle and definitely not the main focus of the story. the heroine of the story is admirable despite coming off as cliche in the first few chapters and she turns into a strong character with a lot of passion for her work that it's very inspirational for me as a reader. it's a really addicting manga and i always look forward to each scanlation.

Ashita no Ousama is like this for me:

Volume 1 .... Boooooring
Volume 2 .... Okay, things are starting to get interesting
Volume 3 .... Moving along nicely...
Volume 4 .... Alright, alright, you got me. I'm officially hooked.

For some reason I like the art. I guess it's because I have some interest in the longer faces and the Josei art style. This storyline is also thought provoking and it brings all of the passion that goes into acting and storytelling to the surface. All of the characters are incredibly strong people, including the main heroine (which is unusual for a manga like this). And the best part about this series is that it doesn't rely on bishonen, romance, or cheap gimmicks to be amazing.

Ending is rushed

Starts as a common girl who blossoms into a great scriptwriter. Her ability to take pressure from the outside and turns it into her energy is awesome. It may be an equivalent of the famous Glassmask imo. Saying that they both are ordinary people who don't know about their special talent and sometimes feeling that they don't have what it takes to be great talents. Maya in glassmask always felt Ayumi is better than her. As for Yuu, she thinks Azuma Rin is a genius. If you like this you may also want to try Cat Street. It kinda give similar vibe to Ashita no Ausama somehow... maybe in the way of characterization of the characters? Meaning that they work hard to accomplish something... maybe, I don't know, not sure....
The downside, the ending is kinda rush... so I have a mix feeling of reading this. The payoff isn't great enough to make me feel that: "okay, this is definitely worth all the time I spent to read it."
