Aine never wanted to be a writer; she just created some erotic song lyrics for the sake of entering a contest. When she bumps into a man she doesn't know and looses the lyrics, she thinks she'll never see them again, but she thought wrong! He turns out to be Sakuya, a famous rock vocalist known for his sexy persona and lyrics. When he invites Aine to be his new lyricist, she finds herself quickly sucked into the harsh world of showbiz... and the even harsher world of falling in love with a guy that millions of girls love just as much!


Kaikan Phrase was published in English as Sensual Phrase by VIZ Media from March 24, 2004 to February 13, 2007.

If your looking for hot bishonen rockers and an innocent high school girl
that gets twisted into their lives with steamy results then look no more!
While the Aine's constant kidnapping and inaine naive nature can get really
annoying, the story is still pretty decent. The romance factor is not so much a *gag me w/ a spoon* moment as is it is sweet Although i noticed as the story goes on the sex gets dirtier and naughtier. *thumbs up* Th eonly thing that bothered me about the art was the way Mayu Shinjo draws hands
and legs. Their fingers are freakishly long! and sometimes read more

If you're a sucka for lovefools then this is the manga for you.

The main char is a pretty easygoing and simple highschool girl, who gets involved with the vocalist of the hottest rock band in japan.
Though it's a bit annoying that you're always putting up with ppl trying to snatch either her or Sakuya(the vocalist) it's pretty much fun watching them overcome all that stuff and keep it together.
It gives a warm feel and it's a nice romance to slowly enjoy.
I approve!

So, I've had the pleasure of finding this manga series way back when I was in middle school, I was twelve at the time. While it was the front cover that grabbed my attention (The art work was appealing and Sakuya's blue eyes attracted me to him), I actually fell in love with the plot and its characters. At the time of me getting the first volume, I didn't even know that it was gonna have sex in it. I mean I guessed it would have some adult themes given the English title, Sensual Phrase, and a flash of Aine's breasts at the end of read more

Welll....Sensual Phrase...sorry Kaikan Phrase.

When I first read a review for this prior to getting it, somebody had written that it was like soft porn.

It is not like soft porn.

It is a little more explicit than most shojo...ie. they actually HAVE sex...but other than a breast or two (hopefully two!) nothing leaps out at you to scare you, unlike some yaoi manga, where everything leaps out.

I found this manga better the second time I read it, which means that obviously the first time I read it I wasn't so put off that there was no way I'd read it again. However, this is by FAR not read more

Manga: Love Celeb
First off, the both have the same author. Also both have a lot to do with celebrities.Plus, both have lots of smu. 
reportRecommended by Scrapped_hime
Manga: Youth Gone Wild
They both involve bands that are completely made up of guys. Also, in both stories...the female main character falls in love with the singer. The main difference is that Kaikan Phrase is based more on drama and Youth Gone Wild is based more on comedy.

Manga: Chohatsu BABY
Similar situation where a band member goes out with a normal high school student, although there is less focus on the guy's actual career in Chohatsu baby

Manga: Heart
Both mangas have the same concept of innocent girl meets "bad boy" although kaikan phrase is more mature.
