Description:
Kyouko Mogami lived solely for her childhood friend Shoutaro "Shou" Fuwa. She follows Shou to Tokyo so that he may realize his dream of becoming a famous singer. When his dream is realized, Kyouko overhears the truth behind his decision to bringing her with him: he was using her as a maid.

Shocked and enraged, Kyouko swears to take revenge by outdoing him in show business. With a new look and a new attitude, she joins LME, the agency where Ren Tsuruga (Shou's rival and the #1 actor of LME) works, in the hopes of achieving her goal of destroying Shou's pride.

Along the way, she discovers her true self, makes new friends (and enemies), and finds herself at the heart of some interesting situations that will change her life, and the lives of all others involved, forever.

Super impressive slow burn! After all these years it is still so interesting and yet also stunning. For never ever would I have thought at the beginning even 200 chapters would be enough for those two to inch a single step together 😂

Watched the anime in middle school, and now that I'm already working it is a shock that it's still ongoing 😭 still waiting for the next chapter tho

Echoing what someone else said that I’ve forgotten who everyone is now!

@Chichiechi we don't know for sure yet! 😅

Oh this's still ongoing lol
I remember watching the anime in middle school and talking nonstop about it with my friends XD
I thought it's already finished and was excited about reading it but this is such a shame because I can't read 200+ chapters especially since I'm no longer that huge fan of shoujo.
Anyway if you like shoujo manga then I highly recommend this 👍🏾

I use to love this manga, but at this point it has gone on for far too long, with very little progress for the FL is both her career and love life (I hate that in every new arc she needs to prove herself and the whole cain/corn dilemma and the fact that they won't reveal it to her just because).
It's been 15+ years, I'm quite honestly surprised this hasn't been canceled for dragging on (like what happened with Bleach).

The people that started reading this have aged, and most likely have had changes in their preferences for stories or simply forgot about it (I did until I saw it uploaded to bato.to and was like "oh sh*t this is still ongoing?".)

I'm not really sure what the author was aiming for in regards to the story and character development, but it is all over the place, much worse than One Piece at this point (and that's saying something).

So glad I found this again

Lolololol valentine's felt like decades ago! Their date got me thinking about when she first met Kanae and that also feels decades ago😂😂😂
Am I the only one aging here?😂

I always forget what's happening and who everyone is now.

The authors note said some people dont like the art style now 🥺 I thought it improved so much it looks so clean now

It's been years but at least there is progress in their relationship.. I know that they won't be the lovey-dovey type but I hope that they will have that cute moments that will let your heart go doki-doki (like before when they are not yet 'official).

Going back, I started reading this in 2002 and was still studying.. now I am (working) in my third company (which is in another country) and I am still following Skip Beat.. 😅😅

I just hope that for all this waiting until Volume 46.. Nakamura-sensei will give a veeeeeeery, veeeeeery, veeeeery satisfying ending for Ren and Kyoko.

Still a loooong way to go... I think~

The wait can be so excruciating sometimes waiting for a chapter... I was sad it was a set-up chapter but I am excited to see how this direction gets us back to Ren and Kyouko!
