Stupid stupid stupid author

Rating: 7.7 / 10.0
I just don't understand why he did this to himself when Act-Age was literally one of WSJ's most popular manga series during that time getting back-to-back color pages almost every chapter, it was even supposedly announced to receive an anime adaptation, if it actually happened Act-Age could have been WSJ's next big hit which could've possibly surpassed Demon Slayer in popularity, but no, the author decided he wanted to touch middle schoolers thus screwing over himself and Act-Age's potential success in the future, smh

Awesome manga about acting

The drawings are really beautiful and and story progresses at a steady pace giving you enough time to love the protagonist and the supporting characters. It really hooks you to know what each chapter will make the protagonist develop as an actress and person. One of the best manga's I am reading at the moment. Waiting for each chapter to be released and hoping an anime adaption would be green lighted!

Dramatized in a good way

I really liked this series. Each episode felt as thought out as the next, and the suspense hedged on character growth rather than prolonged dramas between characters. Bummed to hear the series was axed following storywriter's alleged and acknowledged inappropriate conduct.

Masterpiece

Rating: 10.0 / 10.0
Just recently found this manga, I honestly thought that show business themed manga would be boring, but I was mistaken the moment I read this manga. This is a real masterpiece. It gives you goosebumps everytime the MC successfully improve herself and wrapped up her acting beautifully.

Honestly this is the first time ever I feel so overwhelmed with a manga as this manga successfully deliver such the depth feel about the main topic (in this case is acting).

A disappointment

Compared to the somewhat similar runway de waratte, this is a plain disappontment.

I tried to read this manga more than twice but everytime I couldn't even finish the first chapter.

I mean what's up with the adult-sounding twins younger siblings who are being treated like your normal kids, those who do not even know how to properly wash themselves yet, dispite talking like Child Emperor (the S-rank hero from one punch-man)?
And what was the meaning of the director seating on an office table in front of the campany's CEO? Was that a contortionist audition or something?

Great Character Growth  
by merlockmagus
February 18th, 2019, 1:30am
Rating: 9.0 / 10.0
One thing I like about this manga is that as the main character Yonagi Kei grows, she's also helping everyone she comes in contact with to grow as well. It kind of reminds me of Skip Beat, or more strangely, Phoenix Wright in that way. Kei is inspiring in her transformation from the start of the series into who she is now (as of Chapter 53). She's always an underdog compared to her esteemed peers like Hoshi Akira, Momoshiro Chiyoko, Myoujin Araya, but whenever she's in a scene with another actor, she ends up taking the spotlight.

I think it will be exciting to see her interactions in the future with the star actress of the previous generation, Hoshi Arisa, and what feelings that will bring to light.

"The premise of acting as the main point of storytelling is a unique experience for me on recent manga, and the development of the lead MC is really moving, her background hooks you up and the unique way to portray and convey her feelings along with the amazing art make of this manga my personal recommendation of the week."

Yet another fantastic acting manga.

For some reason, a surprising number of scanlated acting manga are fantastic. Act-Age is another great example. The quirky protagonist, the varied cast, and the strong focus on the theme make for a fantastic combination.
