Synopsis

Yukari is a typical high-school student who listens to her parents and attends school everyday. As she starts to question her way of life, she encounters a group of fashion design students who have a clothing label known as "Paradise Kiss". The group needs to find a model to showcase their designs in an up-coming fashion show and decides to pick Yukari. Initially, Yukari is reluctant to be associated with this seemingly eccentric group, but eventually she realises they are really nice people. Furthermore, their passion and enthusiasm to follow their ideals and dreams make Yukari realise that she has not been enjoying her life and thus motivates her to pursue her own dreams. The story follows Yukari as she gets involved in the group and eventually falls in love with the leader, George.

Some encounters in life can be so unpredictable, short yet oftentimes worthwhile that they shake the very fundamentals of our ideals and principles. That is when we start to change, either for better or for worse. Paradise Kiss (henceforth abbreviated as ParaKiss) starts with one such encounter of Yukari Hayasaka and George Koizumi.
Note: Paradise Kiss is also the name of the clothing line formed by George and three other members.

The story follows your everyday school girl Yukari who happens to pass by one of the members of ParaKiss and subsequently meets the other two members of ParaKiss. Out of nowhere, she is asked to read more

So there are very few anime in this world that can satisfy you completely. They give you everything you want and then some delivered in a neatly wrapped box with a bow. This anime does nothing but deliver from the very first episode up until the last few seconds of the series. But let me be frank; If you're looking for a cutesy series that sugar coats all of its drama in anime cliches then get out and don't let the door hit you on your way out. This anime is not for you! With that said let's move on.

Recommendations

Nana and Paradise Kiss are similar in that they're both done by the same producers. This leads both shows to have a similar "drama" appeal. You're not quite sure what will happen to all the characters, even all the way up to the last couple minutes of the last episode. Both are directed toward more of the "girl" market, but they're entertaining enough for any type of drama/romance fan.

those shows are both romance (to some degree) about girls that changing their appearance end up changing their whole life. fashion is also of importance in both series, we deal with models and designers, though in ParaKiss the main heroine is a model and in Kuragehime she's a designer (of sorts).
