Urayama Minoru is a care free boy who has no interest in the idol group AKB48. On the other hand, he does worry about Yoshinaga, his fellow classmate. She wants to become a member of the group and auditions for a spot, so Minoru goes undercover as a female in order to help Yoshinaga with her stage fright. Words of encouragement can only go so far however, and the web Minoru finds himself in is getting bigger.

Story -
This story revolves around a high-school student who pretends to be a female in order to support his love interest from within the audition, however what he did not expect was to be one of the candidates to pass, so he continues to support his love interest from within the group as Minori as well as from outside as Minoru.

Manga: Skip Beat!
These two manga deal with show biz in Japan. Both protagonists are not your usual everyday talent and actually enter the show biz for other people (skip beat for revenge and akb49 to help). Both give a similar feel even though the storylines differ greatly. hope you enjoy both.

Manga: Haruka 17
The main characters in each series unintentional become part of the entertainment industry only later to fall in love with each. They each go through the ups and downs involved with becoming a success. Haruka 17 features a hidden beauty and deals with modeling while AKB49 features a male who cross-dresses as a girl and deals with idols.

Manga: Coda
both about guyz who because of different situations turn to cross-dressing in front of others and perform in front of a live audience whilst deceiving the whole world keeping their real gender a secret.
one one had coda is a 16 chapter manga which is nice, sweet, short and detailed very good read and I personally wish it had a sequel to it.
Now on the other hand we have AKB49 longer obviously longer has alot of interesting arcs art is amazing too and is more upbeat plus it doest have yuri or yaoi elements
either way both are simply amazing and both  read more
