I personally love this series. It is a lot of fun and totally worth the money (even with 20 volumes and counting). The characters are really well developed that the plot (while not necessarily realistic) is great and leads to some hilarious moments (as do the character's personalities in general). Basically it's about a girl finding herself in the world of showbiz as she tries to get back at a guy that hurt her (I promise that it's not as pathetic as it sounds). Her abilities blossom as she forms friendships and gets experience in the field. Furthermore, the guys in this series are absolutely awesome. Ren is always hot and leaves you wanting more, Sho is arrogant and a jerk that still has some kind of charm (though you still want to punch him in the face), and Lori never fails to make you fall out of your seat laughing just by appearing in one panel.

If you're looking for something that will make you laugh, get you excited, and take you out of the 'real world' for a little while, please give it a try. Honestly, I think it's the best manga I've read yet and I haven't come across someone yet who didn't like it (and I've given it to friends that don't like manga and friends that don't like shoujo alike). You wont be disappointed.

This Manga is my absolute favorite, and I have been following it for the last four years. With 204 chapters and the main characters still haven't confessed it's not a quick read. However it has not been boring and there is at least one awesome point in every volume. Even if you're hesitant, give this one a try, I did and I love every chapter.

Kyoko was a kind, sweet girl bending over backwards to do anything she could to help her best friend, Sho. Until he dumps her in Tokyo after revealing she's only his maid to her. Does she cry? No! She kicks it up to mythlogical grudge mode and vows to get her revenge on him if its the last thing she does. This series is funny, heart-stopping, emotional, and (later books) becomes very romantic as this young girl throws away her former self to embrace a bit of darkness while also healing the darkness in others. THe cast of characters are great, even if you hate the jerks, you still want to know what's going on. Anyone will love this series!

i know its kind of late but..skip beat is my very favorite manga ever..the idea of revenge and the emotion she lacks fits perfectly. and the character kyoko shes what i call original..not like your typical shojo manga girls. once i finished the 1st volume i was so hooked..and i happily say "I LOVE SKIP BEAT"

I love Skip Beat! Its so cool! Kyoko is really funny and i like her evil demons that come out. She is really determined. I hate Sho, how could he do that! This is a really great book and everybody should read it!

This is a strange but funny and surprisingly touching manga. This girl lived for her boyfriend and now that the creep has dumped her she seem to have forgotten how to live for anything save revenge. I liked this manga. It has alot of heart and a very likable heroine. I can't wait to see if she manages to cream her king of all jerks ex boyfriend. Who doesn't love sweet revenge?

A new frien di met in the manga section at barnes and noble suggested these to me almost immediately. I read the first couple. They were okay, but i always enjoy the really actiony adventure ones.
