Why oh WHY did I read this??

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.

I seriously don't understand the ones who have given this manga 1's or 2's. THEY ARE CRAZY!!!!

This manga is wonderful! Great art, Gin is so cool and cute. Kirara is hopeless yet strong.

There are so many funny scenes and also smutty ones which makes you go KYAAAAKYAAKYAAA!!!

Read it! You won't regret it! wink

NOTE: probably some spoilers ahead, but I don't know what the bbcode for that is; sorry e-e.

"Shinjo Mayu" is basically synonymous with "pointless smut" and I think we all knew that coming into Love Celeb, but she has reached a new low with this one.

Glorified rape and weak, naive (read: just plain stupid) heroines are her trademarks but in the end, everything usually pans out somewhat acceptably and that's probably the only reason she has any fans (or so I would hope, as the idea of girls buying into and truly enjoying this crap is too terrifying to even consider).

But I draw the line at the turn this story has most recently taken. Shinjo's females have never been wholesome or bright, but Kirara is basically whoring herself out to anyone who poses even a minimal threat to Gin, who she is supposed to "love." She doesn't stop to think of other ways out of the messes they get into; she simply opens her legs to solve every problem they face, trying to justify it by claiming it to be the only way.

Usually whenever one of Shinjo's heroines is faced with a rival male trying to stake his claim on her body, she makes at least some effort to refuse and resist but such is not the case with Love Celeb.

Kirara simply rolls over and lets any and every sex-crazed man have his way with her, and even goes so far as give her actual love (completely forsaking Gin, to whom it is supposed to belong) to someone she barely knows and who has been terrorizing her for as long as he's been present in the manga.

For as much role as she plays, she might as well not even be an actual character; she is truly nothing but a sexual object and the worst part is that she consciously made herself that way. Shinjo could've replaced her with a blowup doll and then at least this manga wouldn't be so insulting to anyone without a Y chromosome.

There are limits, and I hope this is something Shinjo will finally come to realize.

This manga is pretty poor. I really dislike the heroine, she may be slightly stronger than others but I'd prefer a different heroine, who seems more in keeping with Shinjo's traditional "blushing virgin" stereotype.
You can't mix the two characters together - it doesn't work. She has to go one way or the other.

Some of Shinjo's works are okay - I don't mind a little bit of it now and again, in small doses. Kaikan Phrase was rather sweet. But man, I've completely lost interest in this story...

Shinjo completely oversimplifies show business - the idea that anyone good looking and wealthy can get into politics and become prime minister is utterly ridiculous. Either she is partially retarded, or she doesn't give a damn about her blatant made-up fairytale land.

Hermit-chan's comment completely sums it up.
This manga is awful.

I didn't really like this manga.
The plot is kind of....Well stupid. No...more than stupid.
This manga just make it seem like all bishes are sex-crazed.
The Character wasn't interesting at all...looks the same..
It seems like this manga was just an excuse to draw those scenes.
..I don't recommend this manga to anyone.
That's just what I think, Sorry Shinjo Mayu fans.

I liked it nonetheless. You must realize that this is classic for this mangaka. She likes to have her lead female characters go through alot of crap to be with the man that they ultimately love. I agree with the comment below that Kirara has a stronger personality than some of Shinjo's other female characters. Though Kirara is still stupid and naive, she's alright. As for all of the male characters looking the what?!?! They're all hot it shouldn't matter. I miss Hanamaki-san. I kinda felt bad for him. I hope he ends up with someone good. (Someone that can put up with him too...) Gin is too funny. I have to say I love him with black hair. I'm still waiting for him to surpass Sakuya in coolness...don't think that'll ever happen.

anyways, the main component of this manga is it's level of smut. I think this work has way more smut than any of her others thus far. It has it's stupid points but it also has a lot of cute quirky things about it too. (Like the whole Gin being a wolf and Kirara being the bunny. Lol it so fits them both.)

I don't think it deserves such negative comments, that's all.

It's very plain and easy to understand, this manga is probably one of the worst smut shoujos I've read. (There as one more that was worst but this is still very high on the list.) The males are sex-drive jackasses and the women seem to like it. The female lead is weak, very, very, very weak. The male is an asshole and that's all there really is to it. No depth, no deeper meaning, no real plot line. Don't waste your time here. If you want a real acting-show biz manga that actually develops the characters, go to Skip Beat. Love Celeb...blah.

This manga is EPIC-ly RETARDED.

Ten Reasons why this manga is 'RETARDED':
Spoiler (highlight to view)
1) Kirara almost had sex/being in a Sexual situation with 4 different men (including the director and that political dude who stripped her naked) in the manga. (eventually Shinju picked Gin as the 'chosen one'.)

2) But WOULD she either:
(a) stopped halfway in the sex while still wet and (NAKED).
(b) acts all 'Forgiving' after being sexually harrassed
(c) Aroused by the sexual harrassment(s) but acts all 'Virgin-like'

3) Politics are defined as "a world full of charismatic 'sexy' Rich-full bred Bishies who gets SUPPORT from sex-crazed women"

4) Showbiz is defined as "Women Whoring themselves to reach the Top. Men are Pimps in the Showbiz"

5) People can get into politics simply because they are 'RICH' and 'BEAUTIFUL".

6) RAPE is Glorified. And Rapists are seen as "GOD" in Mayu's EPIC EPIC WORLD.

7) The Bishies look BASICALLY the same if they all wear the same WIG..
They would either be Extremely, Cool or extremely Nice (and innocent) looking.

8) In Mayu's world, there is no such things as CONDOMS And PREGNANCY.

9) Anyone who actually likes this Manga is either a Retard/ill-informed/naive/sadist or this manga could be their first 'smutty manga' that they have READ.

10) If you Do not agree ANY of this 'reasons'. PLZ read the lovely-lovely REVIEWS made by the posters below me.

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.
