Skip Beat

Plot: Kyoko Mogami has always supported her childhood infatuation, Sho, on his road to stardom. But as soon as he hits it big in show-biz, he ditches her. To get revenge, Kyoko goes into show-biz, herself, vowing to beat Sho and make him acknowledge her. (C+)

Characters: Enter, hilarity! (A)

Art & Animation: B+

Voice Acting: A-

Music: B

Objectionable Content: Profanity, suggestive themes

Other: That premise. That dumb synopsis. I left this book on a shelf after seeing it at a book sale. Years later, at someone's recommendation, I have seen the anime and am reading the manga -- and I LOVE it. There's no way you can walk away from reading/watching Skip Beat without laughing at least once. And there's more to the story than that stupid synopsis lets on.

Overall Score: B+

Recommendation: 3.5/5
