From Shoujo Manga Maniac:

Chigusa Tsukikage holds the rights to the play "The Crimson Goddess," a lost masterpiece that many would love to see brought back to the stage. Tsukikage, however, won't allow the cherished work to be diminished by an actress who isn't worthy of playing the title role. Fortunately, she has found two young actresses that just might be worthy: Maya Kitajima and Ayumi Himekawa. Though both actresses are exceptionally talented, only one can win the coveted role.

Note: Volume 50 seems to be indefinitely postponed.

One of the greatest shoujo mangas ever written. A masterpiece in the same category as Red River. One of those stories that you never want to end, but at the same time, you can't wait for the ending!

This is one of those timeless manga like Jojo's Bizarre Adventure. The writing really does credit to the classic plays that are featured in it. This isn't one of countless shoujo manga where the story is merely a vehicle for the romantic relationship the author wants to push.

This manga is my favorite manga of all time but the author discontinued this I think. I've been reading this since I was in elementary school and now, when I'm in college, I still waiting for the new one but... there' none so far. *sigh

The story focuses more on acting than romance but there are some parts which are totally cute which make you say: "aw..."

The characters are also lovable. Very interesting and unique compared to other shoujo mangas.

I started reading this series yesterday and have barely managed to stop to sleep and go to class. Something about the story just won't let me stop reading. I usually hate super-long series and almost didn't read it becuase it's so long, but Glass Mask is definitally an exception.

I read this manga and enjoyed the story. However, the artwork is so dated that it became distracting for me. I wish the artwork was better in it.
