Overview

Find the courage to become a star! R to L (Japanese Style). Still frazzled from an earlier script reading session where she just couldn't seem to get things right, Yura drops one her contact lenses before the next session begins—but could this be a blessing in disguise? If everyone around her is blurry and hard to see, will Yura now be able to focus on her lines and keep her nervousness in check? She'd better try something because one of her co-stars, a veteran actress with high expectations, has been far from impressed with Yura's performance. Life's not easy when you're living in the shadow of your famous parents. Can shy Yura, the daughter of an award-winning composer and a world-renowned actress, find the courage to step out on her own now that her super-celebrity parents are getting divorced?

Publishers Weekly

In Honey Hunt, Volume I, Aihara offers the first installment of a fizzy teenage soap opera about the life of Yura Onozuka. The mousey daughter of a famed composer and a glamorous actress, Yura's life is turned upside down when her parents' divorce becomes a tabloid sensation. Feeling betrayed, Yura decides to become an actress herself, believing achieving fame will be the ultimate revenge on her parents. A mysterious, and possibly nefarious, agent helps her chase the dream, and she soon wins the lead role on a TV show. Along the way, Aihara (Hot Gimmick) offers hints at a future romantic triangle (an Aihara staple) involving Yura, Q-Ta Minamitani, a heartthrob composer, and his more menacing twin brother, Haruka Minamitani, an actor and musician. There are ceaseless twists and turns on Yura's journey, including a public meltdown and a betrayal by her mother. Throughout, Aihara's delicate artwork vibrantly illustrates Yura's constantly fluctuating emotional life, especially her moments of panic, confusion and self-doubt. The difference between the depiction of the goofy and sometimes dowdy Yura and her glamorous mother and the sleek Minamitani brothers makes her self-image clear. (Apr.)
