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.

It's kinda sad how Nakamura-sensei reduced the pages of each latest chapter in addition to monthly update. It used to be almost 30 pages each chapter (without the scanlation credit pages, just the chapter story), reduced to around 25 then 20-23, and now it's not even 20, title page included (the latest chapter only has 17 pages without the title page)

There were a lot of fun and dramatic scenes and arcs throughout the series, so having them just talk things out in such a plain and boring way, in a random location and outside of major plot is anticlimactic. Rather weak, actually. It was supposed to be a big moment!😩

Maybe I can't appreciate this because of all of the wait. When you can't read a bulk of chapters at once, but return every month or so for a snippet of the story, it's kind of painful and a lot of things are lost on you or forgotten. I'm glad they are on the same page finally, but maaan it's taken too damn long. I just don't care much anymore, after all these years, considering I had other things to read. But even accounting to that, I had some expectations, and this just didn't cut it

Damn can't believe how long this manga has been running, and it's always been my favourite. Ren and kyoko are the best.

Ren was so sly and Kyoko reaction is the best!

And I wonder, was there a group of peoples goes around given 1* to all the manga or something? No matter how you look at it, Skip Beat was surely got 5* at least even you don’t like shoujo manga.

The more you read the more you realize how unbeatable Skip Beat is.
Sadly, Skip Beat publication suspended in my country because its low popularity (and I'm late for this hype!)
This manga doesn't offer your "kyaa kyaa" reaction with childish modern romances yet still the greatest shoujo manga ever written.
The drama is too good to not look at. Their hardship really pays off. You laugh and cry to see they are grow up.
The "Skip Beat" term means how every characters feel alive in every aspect of life. Just like how our main characters, Kyoko and Ren, encounter in early chapter, their problem what they have lost as a human being : feelings.
It's true this more than 10+ years serialization is insane, but I love every bits of their journey.

282 chapters and years over yearslater they FINALLY talk about it ///orz//// I thought I'd never see the day. Alright. By my calculation we're..... About 141 chapters away from them actually entering relationship tage officially 🤣

But hey, thinking about their circumstances, you could even call that "fast"

I love how dumb they are when it comes to love and relationships.

I feel like have just been lead on for so long! I love how adult it is, but at the same time,But, I really appreciate where it is going at the same time. Philosophically this has become soo satisfying and has oddly made me feel better about myself lol. . It felt tooo depressing a little too much for me and
I am sad now that I am caught up though and can no longer binge. This manga will forever be in my heart.

My heart is at peace.

I don't understand why so many people criticised the last couple of chapter... for me it is soo different from the average confession, going out together shoujo scenarios ! And it is perfectly in line with the history of these two characters who don't search for love in their live but search for a way to accomplish their dream.
I mean, if they had just date now I would have drop it even if I'm following this manga since more than 6 years now.
I REPEAT : Their goal is not to find love ! But to find themself again after their painfull past !

Banzai to Nakamura-sensei ! One of the only shoujo mangaka who can make an original yet adult romance story that stay interesting even after so much chapters !

this is so unrealistic that it hurts :)))))))
i'm not expecting banana in nutella but man, the cringe in " our relationship till now won't change" is so real. SO REAL. Maybe pretending these last 3 chapters didn't exist will ease the brain pain.
What is the point in prolonging this sort of no romance-maybe romance-no romance thing. for a series so long, the pace is so slow that it just hurts. I'll be back in ten years to see how they hold hands first time.

Ren + Kyouko is everything that’s right in the world. <3
