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...more

Most of this volume is taken up with Ren's acting test. Ren has to convince the president of his agency that his acting is up to romantic snuff or he's sacked. Of course Ren passes. He does it with style. After his rehearsal with Kyoko the night before, Ren is confident that he can perfectly act his scenes. He decides to improvise. Ren's costar Itsumi isn't going for it. She thinks he's being too brash at insisting on improvising. What's even worse is that Ren insists he can "make Itsumi act" li...more

Another good volume. This author is a really good writer, if you haven't noticed by now. Everything she writes makes sense and not in that loose, "I guess that makes sense if I don't poke at it too much" way that some mangaka have. And her characters are not stupid either.

This volume begins with Act 73: Dark Moon.

The cover makes me think Kyoko is shooting a commercial for some type of vacation getaway. Seems to garish compared to the mood in this particular volume.

The story...
This is one of my favorite volumes out of the series. Nakamura was at the top if her game with this one. Ren develops immensely as an actor and a character in the pages.
There are three really big issues that comes out of this, but you'll have to read for yourself to find out what they are.

This arc is starting to come to a close, which is nice. I found parts of it dragging a bit, but Kyoko is starting to realize she might not be as hated as she thinks.

Love this series. In this volume Ren is having his test to prove that he is the great actor that he is and to continue his career in acting. He has to show how well he can play Katsuki and have the girl that he acting against be able to improvise and get her to act the scene the way he wants.

Also Kyoko notice's how all of the female actress can fall under Ren's spell. Kyoko was making me laugh with the "Sway Sway" when she was waiting around for Ren to get done talking with the President.
while i enjoy kyoko and ren's interactions, i find this one slightly anti-climatic. it's okay because it's still well done and pretty interesting to see how kyoko's mind processes new developments. i wish her love switch would turn on, but honestly if i were in her shoes, i wouldn't connect the dots either.
Sometimes I wonder how much you can trust ratings this far into a series. Is Volume 13 ever going to get less than three stars? Probably not. But I really liked this one. It takes the focus off of Kyoko and really develops Ren and, in so doing, develops Kyoko through her observations of him.

COORRNNNNNN!! I love when Ren and Kyoko talks about the past. We totally know that they are connected. OMGOMG! Cuteeee!!

But to me this volume lacked something...I don't know what. But as you can tell from my fangirling that it as still good. 4.5/5

Full review to come.
Ren is still boring. And the fairies thing? I suppose Kyoko would believe in that given that she spontaneously generates demons, but it still seems a little naive for someone with her background.

I can't wait until she can ditch the Mio hairstyle.
