Summary: Kyoko moves to Tokyo from a rural town with her childhood friend/love, Sho, so he can become an idol. Unfortunately when he makes it he leaves Kyoko behind, saying he only brought her as a maid. Furious and determined to get back at him Kyoko decides to do whatever she can to make it in the entertainment business. Revenge has never been so funny.
Graphics Rating: 3/5
Plot Rating: 4/5
Opinion: An absolute must read. The graphics are a tad on the older side and not as nice, but the plot is AMAZING. No other manga has ever made me laugh so much. A perfect balance of love and determination, as well as secrets. Even after reading volume 17 there are still many unanswered secrets, which is hard to find these days. Highly addictive. If you only read one manga in life make sure its this one.
Update: I have been reading this series and collecting this series for half my life. I’m almost 30. It’s in the 40’s now and still no real progress in the romance. Do not read for romance, still a great read though.
Final Rating: 3/5
Extra: There’s an anime out there.
