I just got reminded of this manga out of the blue today after a decade. In a fit of wishful thinking, I came here hoping to see the word 'complete' under status so that I can binge on the remaining chapters. Alas.. it's still going. I'll come back in another decade.

I started this when I was a teenager. I didnt Luke the character design, but luckyly I read it anyway. So enjoyable, funny.
I stopped reading when the last volumen was the number 25, and things got sloow. Before, it felt like a millon things and jokes happend in every chapter, but around v25 the arc got a bit boring.

I Will definetely re read it someday!

I started reading Skip Beat around 2008 after reading Tokyo Crazy Paradise, and then ended up put Skip Beat down for a couple years. I am still collecting the physical mangas and everything. But, last month I just haaaad to reread the whole thing and catch up on what I missed (there were over 100 chapters updated after all) I might be 15 years older than when I first started reading this series, but it has me squeezing and rolling on my bed like I was 15 again. <3x100

This has been running since 2003. It's already 2022. I believe that the author should end it soon.

personal growth is important, but at some point, once you hit your 20th anniversary there should be celebrations and not a story that seems to have no end in sight.

i loved this for the first ten years but i haven't had the interest to finish it. i hope that this doesn't drag on so much but i don't see this ending within my lifetime. can't help but wonder if the mangaka has nightmares about the characters at this point lol

Art? Not a huge fan of how Kyoko was designed, but Ren is definitely hot. The author loves details and really cares about this story. I like the story and the characters are all very realistic. The text you gotta read is very long most of the times and it can get confusing since updates are very rare, in the past the chapters were also way longer than they are now. This also had a potential to be an ongoing Anime such as Naruto and Fairy Tail considering how it is still holding on. What is kind of problematic is how slow the pacing altogether is. In the Manga barely a year passes wheras in real life it passed a decade. Even tho romance is the main focus, the main couple only started to confess their feelings for each other... this year :X it is really challenging our patience. I hope the author finds a way to make the progress a bit faster and make longer chapters like she did in the past. It is hard to stay up to date with a manga that is not updating regularly or at least posting long enough chapters to make the wait worth it.

I recommend this manga for anyone who has a good stamina tho, there are some juicy scenes between the main couple so it is not like the romance is completely neglected. It is just very slow.

This is a good series but it's like reading a really long movie. The artist really cares about the story and I respect that. It's in it's own little world and that's okay. I fee like I've seen so much , I hope it finishes soon.

How this is series getting above 9 avg is mind-boggling. I guess the answer lies in having an established fanbase and selling your product to a demographic that is gonna buy it no matter what. It is really easy to milk the cash cow under such conditions.
The series your typical romcom, very similar to kdrama series. It had some very funny moments mostly due to FMC personality, but that's it it is dragging. Is not the first or last that does this example Hajime no Ippo is going on for decades and uses the same formula. If it sells why bother ending it although there is no progression.
The artwork is very basic. It feels like there is no backround artist. What the artist does is use just a plain backround when the area changes and then have white backround with faces covering the whole panel. Talk about having it easy.

My last post for Skip Beat was from back in 2014.... Unbelievable!

What a classic. This series is the DEFINITION of a slowwww burn. No "falling in love overnight" to be found here. The art might not be the best nowadays, but this manga honestly helped me grow up. I didn't have the best childhood/teenage years, but Skip Beat! helped me mature as a human being despite my isolation from a warm family/group of friends. Kyoko is such a tough woman, and it comforted me to see her journey. I remember pondering various themes in the manga long after I read the chapter, just to imagine what I might have done, and how I could improve myself like she always is striving to.

There was a theme of how she empathized with personalities different from hers once she pretended to actually be them. This helped me outgrow my shy self and become a social butterfly in college. Fake it 'til you make it, so they say. It's crazy to think that so many people, myself included, have their lives molded by a monthly comic strip. Such a warm sense of nostalgia... I'm going to tear up ha ha.

Back in 2002 .. when i was 15 ... i came across this manga after falling across it during anime searches. I read it, enjoyed it and it got me sucked in.

Patiently i wait for an update and before i know it, 2020, i'm 32 and have spent over half my life reading this manga!

Update have gone monthly from fortnightly and weekly before that but yet i still have to keep going. 282 chapters in and the story is only JUST beginning. Lets see now where the relationship goes.

Next update, 2022 .. titled "the kiss" ... most likely as it seems to take years for any progress to happen!
