4 Stars.

Finally, the acting test! The piano flirting scene is so cute and adorable!

Yeah, the acting test really is a great story arc! This reread has been such a great idea!

Not as gripping as the last two volumes, but I enjoyed it. I'm a little sad the Dark Moon arc is over... it was the most interesting one so far. Hopefully whatever comes next will be just as good!

Ren se descojona XDDDD Pobre Kyoko, pero es que es tan inocente... ¡es imposible no reírse!

Finaly! Ren’s acting test!!! That was really good. I really enjoyed those chapters. I’m sad to see the Dark Moon arc come to an end, so far it has been so incredibly interesting. But then again I’m glad it’s over, I want to see Kyoko get more and more experienced and famous, I want to see her advance in show biz, so I’m really looking forward to the next arcs in the series!!!
Also I really loved how after the acting test Kyoko offered Corn to Ren. Those scenes were so magical, with Ren getting am

Kyoko is as dense as can possibly be bit I am glad that Ren is not.

Also, this is just the 13th volume and there are like 40 plus in this series.

I’m continuing with my Skip Beat reviews. As I’m looking right now I‘ll be making quite a lot of reviews, as I do not want to omit a lot. But let me begin, as today I will have 2 other characters that I will be discussing. But like previous time let me make a small list, so you know what this review will cover:

· Kanae having a crisis at work?
· A major work for Kyoko?
· Ren Tsuruga is having difficulties?

First of all, meet Kanae Kotonami or Moko-san as Kyoko calls h

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

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

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.

Ren shows the cast and the director his magnificent Katsuki while improvising his scenes. He wows everyone with his incredible acting skills and the ladies swoon over him. Even stone-hearted Kyoko is moved by his "heavenly smile". I think that tidbit is really cute where Kyoko is panicking over whether she likes Ren or not but then dismisses it as nothing. The best, though, is when Ren translates his feelings for Kyoko into Katsuki's feelings for Mizuki. This volume really showed a different sid ...more

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.

So basically the whole volume was about Ren's acting test. The president was pleased because he was actually acting as if he was in love. I loved the presidents reaction when he found out Ren loves Kyoko. I'm glad Kyoko handed Ren corn. It was her personal treasure but she wanted him to have it. Ren declined because he doesn't need it anymore. I wish Ren would tell Kyoko that he's Corn soon. It's killing me that Ren won't tell her anything!

Dun dun dun. So intense is what happens here. Ren must prove his ability to act his weakest emotion. And he blows everyone away! Yay!! I loved the president's reaction as he realizes how and what changed for Ren. I burst out in laughter at that panel. Kyoko begins to confront and question Ren's acting and her own feelings. It is still such a struggle. WE also get to learn a lot more about their joint past.

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.

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.

Ren shows just how amazing he is when he pulls it off...tapping into a part of himself that Lory is all over (apparently he has a PAST....oooh the complexity of plot!). Still loving this series...on to the next book!

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.

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.
