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

This volume was awesome!! Mostly because Kyoko went back to being bad ass Kyoko (even though she's not really because she's acting the part of Natsu but I loved it either way!)

This spread was amazing (sorry for the crappy picture quality. I am currently out of town for the weekend without my actual camera so had to take it with my phone)

Kyoko's transformation into Natsu is complete and everyone on set is wowed. Even the director approves of Natsu's character. However, one of the co-stars (I forgot her name even though I mentioned it in my last review -_-) doesn't like Kyoko's success with Natsu. She had plotted to take the role of Natsu when the director fired Kyoko for going against his vision. But that doesn't happen. Instead Kyoko manages to befriend two of her co-workers and they go out for ramen. I thought those scenes wer ...more

I will say misleading things now, but: Ren says Kyoko is very good with her hands after she spends the whole night at his place and I found that ambiguous as hell, but not so RenxKyoko No.1 shipper Yashiro?! Oh well. xDD
I loved Kyoko's development in this one. She finally finds her Natsu, changes the whole game for her bullying crew, who now have to adjust their roles (or seriously start to confront their roles) and then creepy shit goes down.
Also, anybody else want to eat that Okonomi bean pas

Kyoko is bound and determined to great a better Natsu. She goes to Ren to beg for his advice in how to walk more like a model. I didn't get at first how this helped her become Natsu, but understand better now. Ren didn't help her with the mental part of the role. However, part of Natsu's character is a regal stance. And carrying herself as a noble model makes it easier for Kyoko to pull off the role emotionally as well.

Chiori's goal to get Kyoko to create a version of Natsu that disagrees with t

This volume is such an improvement over the last one. Man, Chiori is one scary girl. I do understand her anger and resentment, though - she doesn't understand how Kyoko can overcome being typecast as Mio when she was never able to overcome her own typecasting. I hope people start to figure out how angry and vindictive she is, and not just because I don't want her to seriously hurt Kyoko.

As for Kyoko, I'm glad she gave in and went to Ren for help, and I'm so glad she finally figured out who Natsu

I like that Kyoko is finally finding her footing in her new TV role. I don't I felt that the story line could have moved a little faster. I love this series and can't wait to find out what happens next.

4 stars.

I thought this volume was a little slow, but that's probably because Ren wasn't in it much.

Don't know what to day. Things are getting more interesting, but I want to see more progress with the main male and female love interest. :/ Where is Sho and the other stalker? Seriously.

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.

Things are getting good! Natsu has been realized, two bully costars have been won over, and the troubled past of the two-faced Chiori is coming to light. Not to mention the climax, because I don't want to spoil anything, but it's good and it's got Kyouko's putting her boxing gloves on by the end of the volume.
Jeffrey
While last volume was a bit of a mess, this volume comes back with a strong story that careens right into soap opera. Despite what should be a huge negative, I absolutely adored this volume with its fun characterization and increased depth for the new adversary. I can't wait for the next issue!

AMAZING!!! As always this series is fabulous!!! AND I might get a hair cut like Kyoko's Natsu hair. I just LOVE this series, I could keep reading it for soooo long. The stinky this is that there aren't many series like this with the same kind of art that I would like.

Natsu is chilling...writing this after I know where this is going, I am impressed...and a bit in awe. Kyoko will truly be one of the greats if she can just keep herself together...
