From Condensation:
The story centers around Keito Aoyama, a former famous child actor. Due to a childhood incident, she retired from her career early and withdrew from normal society. Now 16, she passes her days in boredom and without purpose. But one day she runs into a stranger who takes her to El Liston--a free school for high school students like herself, who don't have a place where they belong. Though hesitant at first, Keito decides to enter El Liston and subsequently, she begins a new stage in her life. With the help of her only remaining childhood friend, Taiyou, and her new classmates Rei, Momiji, and Kouichi, Keito slowly finds the courage to open up to others and to accept their support. Will Keito return to acting? Will she find true friends? Love?

Shoujo always betrays me   
Rating: 6.8 / 10.0

Sometimes I wonder: why do I still bother with shoujo? It's true that every once in a while I find something relatively good in the sea of garbage but it's been long, long years since I came across a masterpiece like Paradise Kiss. I doubt there are many great shoujo mangas still hiding from me but I still get my hopes up and end feeling betrayed.

From the start Cat Street reminded me of Mars. That's how I predicted that sooner or later I'm going to regret downloading it. I realized that I was right... around volume 4 if I remember correctly. Or maybe even earlier. Three volumes later I was blaming my own naivety for letting myself get cheated like this. The positive feelings I still remembered from a few hours earlier (when I started reading) were the only reason why I survived till the last page.

You see, don't get me wrong. This is much better than most shoujo and definitely not shallow. I liked it at first because I could relate to Keito's problems. I went through something similar when I was around her age. So on that level I could enjoy the story despite it being directed at an audience much younger and less mature than me. What I mean is that there is no genre farther from realism than shoujo but in this case I could deal with all the ridiculousness... until the author went overboard and Cat Street was no longer any different from all the other stories full of drama and pure nonsense.

I'm rating it quite high because I actually liked the characters. Especially Kouichi. They all had their worse moments when they were terribly annoying but not that bad. The art was also quite nice.

Unlike many countless shoujo mangas out there, this one has more depth. I like how the author portrayed "weird" people as cool and passionate about what they do. At first, I thought Cat Street was just another manga about how an ordinary girl made it big in show-biz, but it's really more than that.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Cat Street explored the themes of the importance of finding happiness, friendship, open-mindedness, self-acceptance, etc.
@zozolols: there are people who are attracted to geeks over soccer players. Bill Gates and Steve Jobs are both married. What can I say, geeks are hot nowadays! =)

I can identify with the characters in the manga because I used to be very "down in the dumps" and it took me years to lift myself out of the darkness. I highly recommend this manga to people who are tired of commonplace shoujo and want to try something better.

This story probably isn't for everybody - it's much heavier than the average shoujo, but not so dark that it's utterly tragic. Basically about the growth of its protagonist, Keito Aoyama, who became a recluse after a failed theatrical performance, Cat Street, despite its rather extreme situation, really spoke to me, probably because it personally seemed an accurate depiction of the debilitating fear and shame we have all felt at some point of our lives - and I got seriously attached to Keito. I laughed with her, I cried with her; I think I possibly even grew up with her. I cheered with her triumphs, I commiserated with her failures. The romance was sweet, although the final pairing actually came and hit me between the eyes, but I had no complaints. I've read it over and over, and I only continue to fall more in love with this beautifully crafted story each time I reach the final page. Another thing I also really love about this story are the friendships she makes, how enduring and long-lasting and self-sacrificing and pure. They made me cry too! After reading Cat Street I honestly began to look at some things with new eyes, which is the mark of a truly great manga, a truly great story, if any. Something that gives you something, that leaves its mark. And this really has. smile Perfection.

Well i am kind of disappointed, it spouse to be the highest rate romance according to my search results on this website. Maybe i expected to much. I haven't seen much love at just a good slice of life. I don't regret reading it, it was worth the time, but there's just something missing.

I loved the characters and the character growth and how who she ends up with isn't entirely expected and totally cliched. Not to mention I loved who she ended up with, he was really sweet and always there for her. Not to mention the romance isn't the main plot. The main plot is dreams, and fulfilling them. Because we all know dreams are important.It's really satisfying and I wish that there was more of it. Because this is the kind of manga that's like a breathe of fresh air and really rare. It seems like the mangaka put alot of thought into this manga and I wish that more mangaka's did. This is a masterpiece. Not even exaggerating.

Wow, this was the epitome of teenage depression and romance. Although a lot of people complain about situations like some presented here, and some situations are unrealistic, the story really talks to you. It tells you that giving up something like acting and fame doesn't mean your life is over. That you can change, and that everyone can find someone. It also tells you that love isn't really that easy. Though the drama was sometimes overbearing, I totally recommend this for everyone!

When I saw some of the negative reviews I was skeptical to check this out... I'm also not really into the same shoujo stuff like I use to, and I'm not a fan of love triangles.. at all! But Cat Street was realistic, heartwarming, and anything BUT annoying! I loved how she didn't instantly fall in love with her future husband or didn't do that anything shoujo heriones do when they like a guy but go to his friend...because that doesn't even sound remotely logical!
It was realistic and sweet and the main girl wasn't annoying and she realized her lessons well! The pace was amazingly steady, not fast not slow!
I personally think the reason why this got low reviews is because this is a 'if you want a realistic, steady paced, and heartwarming manga' and not an 'insanely climactic, never ending drama filled annoyance' . Which most shoujo's are!
Cat street is a good read for when you want a not to long yet nicely thought out story. It gets deep but not to deep and its gets you emotional but not to emotional. Aster you're done it's effected you well enough that you get goosebumps at the bittersweet ending!

Not so good

I expected a masterpiece because everyone loves it so much but I found it incredibly irriating. It started off quite nice but I think it lost it half way through. The characters were all great and the concept of the whole story was good, but it didn't hang together in the end and I started to dislike the characters.
And somehow I lost my grasp on the story somewhere around volume 7. A scene emerged between Keito and Kouchi whereby she claims she hasn't seen him in two years...I had no idea two years had suddenly gone by between them without seeing each other. And suddenly I felt like I didn't wanna read it anymore, it was unromantic and I felt like everything had gone back to square one.
Just became really unappealing for me.
I actually don't recommend this manga, where most other people would...odd.

Cat Street is absolutely recommended! It has perfect art (I picked it up mostly because of the cover art) and I wasn't at all dissappointed! The story was good and not at all predictable (like the other tons of shoujos you can find out there) as well as beautiful! This manga is a must read!
