Description
Yukari wants nothing more than to make her parents happy by studying hard and getting into a good college. One afternoon, however, she is kidnapped by a group of self-styled fashion-obsessed artists who call themselves "Paradise Kiss." Yukari suddenly finds herself flung into the roller-coaster life of the fashion world, guided by George, art-snob extraordinaire. In a glamorous makeover of body, mind and soul, she is turned from a hapless bookworm into her friends' own exclusive clothing model.

In this manga we meet characters from Gokinjo Monogatari like Mikako (and her little sister, Miwako - she's in the "ParaKiss" group) and Arashi's father (only a poster, but still), as well as new characters like Isabella.

...when manga brings me back to the reality of things, they're supposed to help me escape. But still, I recommend it, and Gokinjo Monogatari too, of course.

I was quite disappointed after I read the 5th volume knowing that it will be over. This is one of my favorites, it's up there on my top 5 and it's a must read!! Argghh Ai Yazawa, must you corrupt me?!

Ai Yazawa stopped working on ParaKiss because of Nana, so the last volume was written with a lot of haste, because she wanted to improve and to concentrate just on Nana.
I really like the story and the character, anyway.
Miwako is sooo soft <3
8/10, a good job wasted.

I honestly don't see why this is such a popular series. The characters are flighty and materialistic, and I didn't care at all for the protagonist or the love interest. The art and fashion was pretty cool, but the story was mediocre at best.
