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.

I must say that even though I do not like smut mangas (except for Red River) much, this is one of the better smut mangas. It's better than Haou Airen if that means anything to you.
Typical school girl.
Typical famous guy.
Shinjo however tells this tale in a way that isn't bitter sweet, nor is it disgusting,
but just right. But still smutty. I hope that provides enough information so you can decide whether or not to read it.

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...

I got through the first three volumes before I wanted to off Aine. Stupid, Stupid girl. Great for smut lovers though. Not one of the best the mangaka's works though.

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.

Hello people? Do you not get that this is one of the best work of Mayu Shinjo EVER? Kaikan Phrase is awesome! And come on! With out smut, this is nothing, well, without it, it still would be awesome, but adding the smut to it makes it even better, smut is always good. Mayu Shinjo's work without smut would be not as appealing. Anyways, Kaikan Phrase is awesome, the songs are perfect and alluring, the anime is awesome except for the end, they need to extend it and not end it. The Manga is amazing! It's romantic, it's sexy, it's out right amazing! Sakuya and Aine romance, number one. It does not matter if the theme is kind of like other mangas, it's still unique and that is what counts. Different characters, storyline and all of that. This is a worthy manga to read, it will blow your mind! Really, do you not see or notice a good manga when you read one? Or maybe people are too picky of a critique, open your eyes and see the true depth of meaning to these works of Mayu Shinjo! Sigh...people these days don't appreciate good work!
