It's the start of high school, and Kako decides to "produce" her bookworm of a childhood friend, Kousei, so that he can become a good-looking and popular school idol. She models him after Lawrence, a character in a manga she likes, but as Kousei's transformation becomes a huge success and he extends his new character beyond what she asks for, what will Kako do? Will she find herself left behind in the wake of his newly found popularity?


Also included is a story called Megane Danshi Shinka Setsu (Theory of Evolution for guys with Glasses) in volume four.

i can't believe that i laughed my heart out from reading this manga.
it was just so funny how they poked fun of shoujo mangas.
read the first chapter and you'll know what i mean.

anyway, my comment really is:
in just two chapters, Mishounen Produce was able to capture my attention and got me terribly hooked.
yeah, it is typical shoujo, but it is still something different.
the series created a new twist to the same old shoujo storyline.

and wait, i haven't even mentioned about the bishounens here.
aw. just to hot to handle. XD

the girl is a bishoujo, too.
i guess people from far away rural areas are really hot then?

this is definitely recommended.
read and discover what this manga has to offer!

Stunning Art

Only two chapters have been released so far - but one thing I must say is that the art is absolutely stunning. Maybe even the best I've seen out of ALL the manga I've read. And that's a whole lot >.>

I can't really judge the plot so far, but it seems pretty typically shoujo (: The bishies are completely drool-worthy. I'd say one of the cutest moments is when the main character says "I'll never produce you".

Can't wait for the main heroine to go through her transformation - and have all the boys swooning for her <3 I didn't even recognize her with her hair down xD

This manga is so cute! XD I've never noticed how different manga characters look with different hair until I read this manga! XD I always though "Did the mangaka really draw the character's face the same way or different?" since they looks so different with their hair down. XD

Ah, it's so cute! I can tell from the first chapter that this series will be worth reading~

Spoiler (highlight to view)
I found it especially cute at the end of the chapter when Kousei said he wouldn't produce Kako :3 I can't wait until the boys will start swooning over her <3

i read it when it first came out in lala, so i'm really excited about the story. seems pretty typical, but there seems to be a good dose of humour and lovable characters. i also like how it's different in the sense that the main guy is a "production" instead of a typical cool guy.

cant wait to read more !

Even it's too early to commented on because only 1 chapter been released I can't help it because it too hot wink
Same goes with the cover that blown you away at the moment you see this manga.
We always always read manga with typical shoujo manga right? With the girl wearing thick spec, lame hair style. Yeah, you can see it here.
But, the main point is the boy. Producing totally new hot boy and it's soo cute, their relationship.
"I won't ever produce you huh?" well said, bishie~! xD

Surely, grab this manga quickly embarrassed
make it popular xD
