I remember reading this when I was younger, and I couldn't afford to buy books on my own. That was such a long time ago. I would read it online and when they took that down, I felt so sad because I didn't have a way to read them anymore.

Now that I have the chance to read it again - I remember why I loved it so much. It's hilarious, it's hopeful and it is a story of a girl that picked herself up from the bottom.

So yeah, here's to Kyoko and to her success!

I first learned about this manga from its anime with the same name. I fell in love with it there and when the show ended needed more. I was just happy to find out the manga was leagues better than the show. It is still on going, but I can guarantee that it a manga you will want to read. Love Kyoko's character and the humor. If you love it there is also a Taiwanese Drama of it which include two korean actors as Ren and Sho, bringing a mic of cultures. All follow the story until there end even though the manga goes further.

Not that much of a cool book because the girl (Kyoko) doesn't look that good, but after every book, I got hooked on beacause the ending was always leaving me wanting to read the next.

Definitely agree with Aquarius_22_HN ! This is my fav!

this book is so hilarious. the main character that was sweet is now embroiled with a passion to overtake Sho Fuwa in his own game- show business.
She has these adorable but dangerous mini grudges that do her evil bidding and along the way she gains the help and admiration of the most influential people in the "biz"

Once you finish this first volume, you'll want to continue reading it non-stop. One of the best manga out there.
