Kyoko's spaz-outs are totally the best part of this series.

This volume we had tons of development and struggles. We got to see the background behind Moko and it was very touching and inspiring! Seriously, (most) girls in this manga are BAMFs!

I really love seeing the struggle between Ren and Kyoko. Some people might get bored but I don't (main due to the humor). But the cracking and healing relationship between Ren and Kyoko can be very touching. Their relationship is like someone's retracting hand from a burning hot-warm stove. The intial shock of the c
I fell in love with this manga immediately.
It drew me in and kept me there. Sadly to say i have been reading it from the internet and hate to wait in between chapters.
I've also been watching it's anime and I've seen the first episode of the TV show extravagant challenge based on this manga.
But nothing beats the manga because it has all the extra details that are not shown elsewhere.

I'm writing this review for all of the volumes of Skip Beat because i tend to read them all together. I enjoy Ky

The cover and the synopsis of this volume features Ren, but much of the plot is about Kyoko and Moko. Moko begins this volume clearly troubled. She thinks her acting career has been ruined. By a little boy. A superstar little boy from a prominent family who has decided that he hates her. Kyoko to the rescue! She's able to tease out the heart of the misunderstanding between Moko and the little boy and save her friend's career.

In so doing, we learn a lot more about Moko's past. She comes from a v

This volume begins with chapter 49: Forbidden Confession.

The cover was quite beautiful. I really like Ren as a character, and all of the interesting poses done during the course of the manga makes me wonder if this person that Nakamura finds as the ideal? The drama version couldn't be anywhere near this version of Tsugura.

The story:
Child actor? It's the first time for Kyoko meeting one, so she's baffled by this child's rotten behavior. We met him at the end of volume eight. After meeting backsta

Mr. Yashiro is fast becoming my favorite character. It's just a coincidence that all my favorite characters in manga wear glasses right? Right.
Makes me feel like picking up acting again.

This book was about a girl named kyoko mogami trying to earn her way into the spot light to get revenge on her true love sho . She is offered a job to star in one of shos video clips , and takes the offer . She and sho arrgure alot during the shot. When kyoko is done with the shot she is offered ANOTHER spot to reanact a old tv show. Kyoko is very nervous when she finds out she has to work with her ren tsuruga. I would recomend this boook to people who are into drama, mangas and acting.

I finally got to see something I hadn't already seen in the anime or Taiwanese Live Action. :D I mean I knew about it, but I didn't get as in depth an introduction to the Kanae's family as I did in the manga. :D It was really fun watching Kanae be harassed by so many little ones and her older sibs as well! lol
moko's career is saved, and kyoko's is about to really take off! i love how yashiro makes all of ren's problems stemming from kyoko. it's just classic! but ren's problems are just beginning as the new arc is right around the bend.
More of a transition between arcs than a standalone book, Volume 9 explores' Moko's background but doesn't really bring out what I enjoy most with Nakamura's series. Still, it's a good read.

For my full series review on volumes 1-31 please visit http://perksofbeinganotakuwallflower....
Still pretty good. Not amazing, but the problems that each characer has are getting a little more realistic. Well, sometimes.
I love that Kyoko is not the typical shojo heroine. And I'm looking forward to the day she finally gets her revenge.

Where Moko reveals her upbringing and Kyoko is offered a role in Tsukimori.
My favorite manga series! Cute, witty, innocent, and downright hysterical. :)
