And now Kei must perform her most difficult role yet: a functional member of society. ?

@Lilysansiren Fallen Angels Scans dropped the series because they are now officially available in English. The link is in the description.

Little update on the sales: volume 5 sold 52,000 copies in its first week, which is nothing to scoff at. For comparison, Dr. Stone volume 9 sold around 60,000 in the same week.

@ShinGetsu That's when I'm glad I learned Japanese. X) It'll take a few months for Viz to catch up to chapter 42… sucks…

Seems like Fallen Angel scan stopped translating it due to official english serialization and... I can't fuckin read it because they block it in non-english country.

Guess I gotta learn how to setup a proxy. :Reeeeee:

My guess is that once the play is over and Iwao dies, she's gonna be hit hard by depression for a while…

Yup, but going over the top is standard in japanese manga. There's always a new wall to overcome. I think she has still a lot of room to grow.
In any case it's up to the author.

And gosh do I dig this artstyle.

@Kiriha What do you mean, Misunderstandingscans? =O

@ShinGetsu Pretty much. Though I'm honestly a bit worried that Kei is becoming too good too quickly with the Galactic Railroad arc. There's the question of "how do you go up from there?"

All right, so I marathoned the 41 chapters of this that are out, it's 3 AM AND I REGRET NOTHING.
What is this. What is this masterpiece. I'm so frustrated by the end of chapter 41. Give me the next chapter nao !

- The characters. They are all unbelievably good. I totally expected the first rival to become a total bitch, but instead she's quite lovable and realistic as far as manga go. There's not a single character I don't like in this.

- The MC herself is great. Cute but impressive, smart but sometimes lovably dumb... a true weird savant character. It works.

- The art. It's really gorgeous. Nothing much to say.

- Usually in these kind of actress story, you usually get some clichés about "how good that actress is". But here it actually is believable. The "random mob that actually steals the spotlight" is something that did happens in reality for instance.

PS : It's Jump ? If it fares well for some more time, there's gonna be an anime of this, no doubt.

You can read chapters 4-39 here: https://manga.fascans.com/manga/actage
And Chapters 1-3 are free here: https://www.viz.com/shonenjump/chapters/act-age

It's worth the trouble, it really is a wonderful story.

@glafx Yeah, Fall Angel's site has up to chapter 24, but maybe they don't want to upload them on other sites…
