However, Tsutomu has been gaining popularity, especially with the girls, because he seems to resemble a popular vocalist from a band and somehow, Mikako begins to see him in a different light.

I might as well write a review of this anime since I was the one who provided (most of) the raws, translated it and reviewed each episode at least three times before it was released, which in my opinion counts for at least something.

Well, as much as I am loathed to put labels on what are clearly three-dimensional characters, here we have a show where Ai Yazawa pretty much presented us with what could be a psychological profile of a tsundere before such a term even came to existence. She's brassy, full of herself and can sometimes be unfairly cruel, but that is read more

Both of them are written by Ai Yazawa so the ambiance feels the same : a group of people making clothes themselves while trying to figure out their dreams. Romance is involved in both, and we follow more the relationship of the male and femal main characters. same kind of humor. If you liked Paradise Kiss, their is not doubt you will also like gokinjo monogatari.
both has a cute couple that obviuosley needs to be together, but for some reason isn't.
both are funny and romantic, and really remind me of each other.
