I love you Kyoko. I love you so much.

Oh my god I freaking love this manga!! If I've never stated that before, I admit it here. This volume kept me smiling and laughing throughout the whole thing. I can't help gushing over it. While reading the manga I was in a bubble of happiness that my family's arrival nor my coach's phone call could even pierce it. So the more I discover of Kuu's (the actor that Kyoko has to take care of that I previously called bratty and other things) character, the more intrigued I am. Clearly there's some co ...more

This series is weird because it's about people in showbiz, like actors and singers, and I really enjoy it but at the same time I wonder how much is accurate. I mean, there are obvious things that are completely made up, like the president's eccentricity, but different methods they use to act and things they do to practice acting. As a could-be-potential-aspiring-actress I find it very interesting but at the same time I'm not sure what to make of it. Oh well, I guess I'll just keep reading and en ...more

Hello, everyone and welcome back to Katie’s Corner! Today I’m continuing with Skip Beat! reviews, and trust me you don’t want to miss any of events I’ll covering in today’s reviews. We get to meet new characters, and some old ones will be acting a bit crazy. And this time, again the story focuses on Kyoko, Ren and some of the times on Shou. As always before I start let me make a list of what I’ll be covering:

This was another re-read, to catch up on this series before heading on to the newest volumes. Kyoko is one of my favorite manga characters because she is so endearing, but still so messed up. One of the main foci of this volume is the relationship between parent and child. Kyoko never had a loving relationship with her parents, and so when called upon to act one out, she doesn't really have a frame of reference to draw from, and is at a loss. I love the interaction between Kyoko and Koo because ...more

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

At the end of the last volume, we were introduced to Koo Hizuri, a famous actor who has returned to Japan from Hollywood. Kyoko is his assistant and slave. He rants and raves and treats Kyoko like dirt. Now we find out why. It's an assignment from the president of Kyoko's talent agency. Hizuri tells the president that he feels sorry for Kyoko, but he has to keep acting horribly towards her. The whole point is to get Kyoko to complain about Hizuri to Ren. We discover why later.

But as is always th

This was such an adorable volume. Getting Kyoko to play Kuon was side a nice touch. I hope we get to see some flashback of the real Kuon eventually. I'm also loving the relationship that's blossoming between Kyoko and Kuu. It makes me all the more curious about Kyoko's real mother.

This was such a hilarious series! Kyoko was such a quirky character and was always doing stuff to get into trouble. I liked the transformation of her character throughout the series and how she found out that instead of having to rely on a boy she could make it on her own. There was a love triangle that I also enjoyed very much.

I always feel special when I get books "early." lol. Anyway...
Kyoko has gotten herself into a mess again, trying to reject all of her acting offers, being forced to act as a teenage boy, etc. 19 was set up beautifully for Ren to be the focus for at least a chapter or two. Ah, which is lovely. I'll probably re-read the series again instead of doing my homework. It's just that good. This particular book wasn't one of my favorites though. But like I said earlier, it seemed like a set-up for 19 to b

This is still one of my All time favorite Series!! LOVE IT!! In this volume Kyoko is now a personal assistant for Koo Hizuri. While being this personal assitant she has to try and create a boy and stay in this role while she is with him. Kyoko has to figure out what kind of character this boy should be.

In this volume there is a major surprise that relates to Ren. I will not give any spoilers but if you love Skip Beat this is a must read volume!!

Kyoko kadang nggak paham sehebat apa dia dalam berakting.
tapi itulah dia yang saya suka, hebat tapi tetap rendah hati (atau malah namanya pesimis duluan?).

saya sangat mengagumi ayah Ren, Ku, karena beliau memang sosok ayah yang menyenangkan.
saya juga kagum melihat akting Kyoko sebagai Kuon. lucu sekali.

Oooo So we're finally meeting that person, eh? And that person has actually taken a liking to Kyouko and is mentoring her. I don't know how much practice in character creation she needs, though... This lesson seemed more than a little redundant. Anyway, I want to see more of the backstory between that person and Ren.

Interesting developments. Expected a little more revealing but a lot can be assumed by the way the characters are reacting. Not as compelled to keep reading after this one but I might read on.
Aug 18, 2009 Jeffrey rated it it was amazing
This book is wonderfully set-up by the presence of Koo, a figure from Ren's past who assigns Kyoko a homework assignment that goes amusingly, although somewhat disturbingly, awry in Kyoko's own implacable way. One of my favorite volumes of the series so far.

This is such a drama filled story. I love it. :) The introduction of Koo is great. I think I know who he is related to Ren's past. This story always gets me excited when I read it. Hopefully the next volume comes out soon.

Viz seems to have slowed down their releases for Skip Beat, which makes me sad (i've never worked out their system, just that it was related to shojo beat somehow). i need regular doses.

Ren's dad didn't turn out to be as bad as I feared. It's nice to see Kyoko developing as an actress.
