Well, I just couldn't hold back after reading so many of these! And instead of being COMPLETELY biased based on the ‘s’ word, I’ll give it to you (the reader) as best as I can. I have heard a lot about Kaikan Phrase, which is a much better read plot wise, and I must say I truly do like Sakuya’s style, wit, and charm. But it takes a little more than a read or two to realize this story’s greatness.

If this book is in the category of drama, it should be! The amount of problems these two come across is ridiculous! But it’s to be expected… After all, a rich guy marrying a commoner? How many fairytales have we read that in before? So it is more than easy to see where one would get on the stand and preach its atrocity. And it’s never easy doing so. So, now. We have the common shoujo female bully, we have the oh so common harem appeal. (I mean, I’ve read a lot of shoujo and I’ve never seen so many bishies put toether in one shoujo in my life~! Well, maybe not NEVER, but you get my point)

But I must agree on a few things here and their… Yes, this book’s theme song, like a lot of other of Shinjou’s work is: “Let’s Talk About Sex” but this book was clearly written on the note of unrealistic, and first and foremost comedy. When you see all of those things you can’t help but think: ‘Well, damn!’ and, ‘Ooh, FAIL!’, and not to mention, ‘Oh my freaking gawd!!! I want to kill him!’, also ‘Awww..’, or ‘I want one!’ It’s just human, erm, girlie nature! Now, I tell this story a lot better than she does~ BUT! The element of surprise, yet predictability is still there. It’s a classic, unoriginal, comedic love story about two idiots who rushed into love. And the extra with Sakuya’s Production was priceless. I still laugh. (I laughed when I wrote this by the way…)

No girl in their right mind would want a love like this one; however, I don’t recommend men to read this story at all, even if they are homosexual. The practicality of love just isn’t there. It is in all of its greatness a funny, funny, funny story. But it’s not for everyone. You have to look for the little things to get the big things and you have to restore your mind to a teenager’s point of view. And if you are an adult, what the hell are you doing reading this anyway?! Go watch the news or something… Anyway… I absolutely adore Fujiwara, Ginzou’s oblivious nature and his horrible taste when it comes to love. I also love his innocence. And I read that Kirara was the innocent one which is definitely not in comparison with Gin’s because his innocence is totally pure and totally there. He’s a boy who was led astray by the sexual perversity that became his older brother figure… I suppose. But Kirara’s no saint. Saints do not own dirty manga… In any case, her overly dramatic weakness is probably Shinjou’s way of expressing the need for a weak, weak, weak female lead. We see it in all her works. From the Sexy Guardian, to Haou Airen, all the way to Sex=Love². (The last one is also a great read humor wise… Much like this one!)

Elvis and A TEENS told us fools rush in… This book, like a fool, one should definitely rush in. Because only then will you understand how this book is truly great. Not because of the fan service, or the constant rose petals in the back ground. Mayu Shinjou openly knows how to make you laugh. Whether it is in a ‘Well, damn!’ kind of way, or a ‘S***, that was funny!’. So, are you prepared for the comedy of the century? I don’t know. Whether you want to criticize it and laugh at how corny it is, or how unwell written the plot is, be my guest… But not a person!! Not one! Who has truly read it for what it is can argue the fact that this comic, err, manga is funny as hell!

Much to do about nothing~

This girl is so mis- guided in life
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
she thinks it's normal to do sexual things with her manager..
Plus falling for a guy that wants to run her life.. Then getting wet over others so easily while this guy runs around trying to keep her safe.. Too stupid too naive..
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
The only thing that made this story cool was to have the guy from Kaiken phrase there.. I love that guy!

Once again i have to agree with many commentors.
This is a great example of Shinjo's basic shoujo smut sxe rape love and happy ending in one big jabba the hut.
The beginning was okayy though it had smut from the start and so i just felt like it didnt have heart. The manager is such a freaky douchebag! I ended up liking him in the end but my first impression of him was u modafuka letting a young girl who wanaa be in business get sxe appeal? i knoe its her choice but damn u for providing lessons if needed!

continuing, like Shinjo's other mangas, she ends up falling in love (surprisingly he doesnt rape her GASP GASP!!) but he wants to fuk her badd like duhh. The hotel scene and jewels was wat touched my heart first and then the thing where she retires but then is with the other guy and she has a comback performance and gets back with her politician boyy hahah <3 that was cute.

So i wudnt say it was too bad.. I think the middle and ending part was more exciting to me, the beginning chapters where pretty cliched, gave the background of her life and the drama da dee daah.
I loved how Kaikan Phrase was twisted in and it was a good read too smile

Lovely, cute and very touching. I love how this is a type of prelude to Kaikan Phrase, you get to see Sakuya and Aine years after and thriving with their love. XD
Gin is so very sweet and cute, just as Kaikan Phrase was worth all the time it took to read it, so is Love Celeb. Though the characters are sex-crazed it didn't seem too obsessive because there was always a reason behind it and the way Gin was lusting after Kirara since the first volume was hilarious. A wolf in sheep's clothing, and a delectable bunny. XD I don't consider this one of her downfalls, but rather one of her best works, because it's so cute and lovely.

If you take this piece more as a comedy than drama, you will really enjoy it. The plot goes from one place to the next, which won't make too much sense, but if you just go with the flow and if you don't dwell too much on the fact that nothing seems to be logically explained... it's actually pretty funny.

No seriously, I don't understand what was going through my mind when I picked this up and saw it through the last chapter!! What is wrong with me??

It was kinda amusing the whole Gin-Kirara thing (esp. Gin debating over why he was so obssessed with her) but was pretty unrealistic how some characters just jumped out of nowhere and the manager was such an asshole...and the girl. Don't even get me started on Kirara...she's as dumb and dim-witted as they come, no redeeming value what so ever. And then the plot line which deteriorated with every passing chapter and the story became harder to believe. :rolls eyes:

But, yes, it did have few cute scenes and chibi Gin is SOOOO cute!!! biggrin That's the only reason I'm giving it a 3.

And, I agree with Hermit-chan, InLibrisLibertas and vampiremaddy whole heartedly. I'd have added their points in here but they've explained it well enough.

One of the worst mangas I have ever read. The beginning was entertaining at first and even a bit cute, then it started to get repetitive: sex, sex, sex. Kirara really needs a backbone and needs to get real. I mean, a manager gives you sex lessons to better yourself. Really, you retarded idiot. Love Celeb portrays all guys as horny insects, living for sex; and Gin...for Pete's Sake, he'll become the country's leader? Really. And the entertainment scene, yeah, I doubt actresses become famous by giving up their bodies. Seriously. Mayu, please do a better job, for the sake of yourself and readers.
