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?

this manga gave me the same feeling as when I read Ai Yazawa's NANA. When I first read about this manga on the site I was turned away by the boring summary and the boring cover of the pic. But I saw the ratings and I read the comments and was intrigued by how many people were insisting that this manga was amazing and that the summary does not do it justice. Nana immediately came to mind because I had the same reaction to its summary and it ended up becoming my most FAVORITE manga I have ever read. Now this manga is right up there with Nana (but not past it haha). The summary really DID NOT do it justice and I couldn't stop pressing 'next'. I stayed up, like so many others, till 5am unable to stop. It was such a great manga and although a lot of people didn't like the ending, I LOVED IT. It wasn't over the top and it was incredibly fitting. If I were able to, I would save the place that saved me too. And I LOVEDDDDD who the main character ended up with. The guy that I immediately took a liking to was the guy she ends up with YAAAAY! It was really unpredictable and NOT cliche at all! Waaah I haven't read a good manga like that in a long while, it's the kind of manga that touches you deep and leaves an impression. Worth the read. smile

slice of life? really?

I absolutely loved it.. And I think it teaches a great lesson about succeeding in life, and standing up when all your dreams have crushed.. However I would deeply disagree about this being a slice of life type of manga.. I mean yes, it's great that everything works out for Keito, but it's not very realistic (which was probably what I liked most since reality sucks)..
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Nowadays, people would have gotten married to the soccer player instead of the computer geek, and nobody would spend their entire fortunes in the high school they attended.. even if it was being demolished.. Don't mistake me, however! I think the fact that Kouichi spent all his money for this cause makes me like the story even more
but let's face it, it's not something that would happen in real life and even less, nowadays.. And furthermore, yes Keito dropped out of the acting bussiness.. but nobody in their right mind would lock themselves up for 7 years.. It's more likely that they would reach towards drugs and disaster.. but not locking yourself up in elementary school without having your parents do anything about it and then miraculously recover..

it just doesn't happen..

but besides that tiny detail, I think this is one of my favorite mangas.. Highly recommend it!

I loved it, loved it, loved it. The characters, the story, just everything. This was a really good slice of life. The romance was a bit slow but I think that's what made it better. I loved the pairing, because that's what I wanted from the beginning, and UGH. I LOVED IT.

One word to describe this manga personally. Amazing. This manga tops in my lists of Favorite Mangas. My personal opinion is that this manga wasn't one of those clique shoujo mangas where you could predict the plot and practically determine who she would end up with, it had a real life kind of quality about it and even though the ending may seem a bit to up there it was still amazing.

At first I have to admit that the summary and cover bored me and that I had first only read this manga out of sheer boredom. Even if it may seem dull at a glance it's incredible once you get into it.

The simple fact that it's plot is not driven by romance as it's central point while pulling you into each character's stories makes me astounded. This is a manga that gives me new faith in manga, one that fully deserved to be read. I had to force myself to go to sleep at 5am! XD

Good manga, worth reading. Started off amazing, loved the characters. It went downhill at some point near the end and characters began acting out of character; that really pissed me off. Ending sucked. It went from being real and down-to-earth, to sappy, fakeness. Really sloppy work there.

I find this story to be perfect for anyone has retired from society in one way or another. I find it teaches valuable lessons. The concept of the free high school, the way that idea is worked, I find fantastic. I'd love more details, would love if it could be viable in the real world. I'll definately be rereading this. It's a very real, very relatable (to me anyway) human story. Some say the main character is overly melodramatic, but this fits the relate-ability bill for people that tend to have rollercoaster emotions that take them to the depths of hell

I've stumbled onto this manga quite a while ago but I've never really cared for it because let's admit, there's nothing too spectacular about the summary. The actual story, however, is quite the opposite. It's one of the mangas that pulls you through each time, and you can't seem to stop clicking 'next'. The thing that I like about this manga is that it's not really complex, quite simple actually, but it's not too predictable. All in all, I really enjoyed this series.

Although there were times when I was really unsatisfied with the couples.. but whatever, I sucked it up and realized that the ending was fitting and had to be done..

The summary definitely doesn't do this manga justice. When I read the summary, I didn't feel like reading it at all. Only boredom made me start. And I didn't stop until I finished it. At 4 am. The characters are engaging, and the character development was unbelievable. I loved how it ended, though there do seem to be questions that remain unanswered. However, I feel like it fits with the flow of the story. Overall, it was a fantastic read. Definitely one to keep and reread.

I skipped over this manga a number of times for more excitng sounding mangas, but I regret doing so now. After reading the description I wasn't sure what to think. Truthfully, I couldn't understand why people praised it so much; it sounded plain and downcast. After finishing the series, I count myself among those who were drawn in by Keito's emotional journey to rediscovering herself.
I will most certainly be drawn in to reading Cat Street a few more times in the future.
Spoiler (highlight to view)
I was shocked at who Keito ultimately ends up with in the end. But I was hoping for them to be a pair.

BTW, I'm surprised that it's by the same author as HYD.
