Hey everyone, I'm looking for a good shoujo romance that revolves around music or art in some fashion. I've read

Nodame Cantabile (technically josei, I know bigrazz)
I'm no Angel (okay a gender bender but he's an actor balancing school life and that which make it interesting)
Skip Beat
Mars (doesn't revolve around the arts but Kira in an artist so even something like that would be fine)
NANA (technically I watched the anime and read some of the manga bigrazz)

um... I can't think of what else I've read at the moment. I'm watching La Corda d'Oro right now, thus the request bigrazz Thanks for you help

(PS It's easter holidays and I really have nothing else to do so even if you can't think of anything arts related ANYTHING shoujo/romance would be great!! ^__^))

From top of my head:
Charisma Doll
I won't let you become a star
Full moon o sagashite
Complex (shoujo) <--- although it's about a model?
23:00 <-- break dancing
Model <--- is kind of 'centred' on the portrait the girl paints
Nousatsu Rock Star
The Poet Who Buys Words
Wanna Be Cool <--- not really a romance, but a funny one biggrin
Suki ni Natte mo Ii no? <--- one of the characters is a writer, but there isn't a big focus on the industry.

As much as it pains me:
Love Celeb
Kaikan Phrase <--- both by Shinjo Mayu, awfully 'smutty' and well, clichéd.

Hope it helps.

Thanks guys bigrazz Some of those I've read/began to read (I actually own the first volume of Model but can't really get into it, which is strange cause it totally seems like something I'd like.. thus the buying of, I suppose...) I've read most of Love Celeb and Kaiken Phrase when I was going through my 'read as much smut as possible' phase... I'm not sure why I had that phase or why I'm admitting to having it... anyway... I've also read most of W-Juilet but it just sort of seemed dragged out after a while to me.

Anyway, thank again ^_^!!!
