It's a fun shoujo, but to be true... I'm getting crazy about the fact there are always problems with Aine XD

This series is awesome. I have to own them all. I'm just missing volume 2 and I can't wait to get it. Yes it's smutty but that's ok. I don't mind smut. Shinjo Mayu is one of the best mangaka's in my opinion. I love her bishies and Kaikan Phrase is full of them. There are great characters in this manga. I love how almost all the characters' storylines are well developed. I could wish for more on Santa but oh well. I gave it a 10. It keeps me entertained and I can read it all over again and again.

I only read the first four volumes and had to stop it was just to "Over the top typical for me to enjoy." I will admit I'm sometimes a sucker for typical shoujo plots but this shoujo theme was lackluster in my opinion.

My god this manga is the worst one i have ever read. the story lines okay but the "girl" and "guy" are so annoying. the only reason i finished it through was cause of the side characters. The story is so repetitive and it starts to read out as a typical shoujo manga. not recomended to people who expect a plot

Its the best manga ive ever read. no fuss no drills here... and sure not a cliche. the manga storyline is soooo GOOOOODDDD!!! Its not ur typical girl meets celebrity, she herself is a celebrity in her own right way, she a lyricist, with a very good imagination and she's a high school with a pure heart...
SAKUYA, is the best anime/ manga MAN ive ever encounter, well, there's mAyu's Gin and Hakuron but, SAKUYA defntly ROCKS and scores 200%!!!
I love his way of moves, talks and total arrogance, and yes, MAYU SHINJO sure knows how to CREATE MUSIC VIDEOS, i love all her MV here... she sure is good...
the band Lucifer and emu really is cool and i hope that i can buy the Drama CDs... argh!!! its hard here to find em...

A typical "normal girl meets celebrity" storyline. I got through two volumes before I started losing interest in the plot. The conflicts just flow from one contrived situation to another. In short: perfect for Shinjo Mayu fans - not for fans of a developed and original plot.

This really is awesome. It's one of the smutiest mangas around, but it's still good. I loved the anime, especially since it focused more on music than the manga. I love the manga though too ^_^. /\ucifer is one of my favorite bands now, even though they broke up back in 2003.......

Mayu never dissappoints. I bought all the volumns, yes, it is THAT GOOD. The ending was amazing, a happy ending, and it leaves you wtih a safisfying feeling. The characters were nicely protraited, even the side characters got plot development. Aine and Sakuya is just the perfect pair, tho what they went through is alittle farfetched. Nevertheless, Mayu caputred the essence of people's life. If you look at the bigger picture, the storyline is really touching. Each of the events had its reasons to take place. I love how in the ending tied up perfectly with the beginning.

It's a fast read, entertainning all the way through, no boring parts at all. This seems strictly written for shojo fans. But still even if your not, there shouldn't be any reasons for you to not like it. Of couse there was a lot of smut, but that's just her style. However, as we all know it is usually the smut that brings out a person's true emotions in drawingform, sometime words just won't cut it.

This is something you can come back to read over and over again. It's just amazing written and drawn.

10/10 for Mayu!!! .

Bishounen + stupid girl = smut. Emphasis on the "equals."

Shinjo Mayu's smut is the ultimate smut. It's so smutty that you can't just casually juxtapose her smut with manga series of other genres.
