Story: It starts out pretty well for a romantic comedy--serious plot, light-hearted tone, and realistic emotions. When it got to the point where Hibari was married and Ageha could tolerate Hibari's marriage, I believe the story lost it's plot. When I was reading in the middle of volume two, I was curious to find out why this story was occurring (for a different reason rather than just Yukari and Ageha's love story). In volume 5, when Hibari gives birth to her baby that started the whole book in the first place, it lost what little story plot it had left. When it came to read more

I really love this manga, right from the very first page. It's an adorable and relaxing read.

For a romance manga it's a pretty orginal plot, it starts off a teenage girl called Ageha, who has a serious sister complex and a love of designing and making bags. When her sister, Hibari, gets unexpectedly gets pregnant and decides to marry it really shocks Ageha. Eventually Ageha goes along with Hibari to a dress fitting at VBR, where she meets two gorgeous guys. Yukari and Mitsu help Ageha to accept her sister's marriage. From what I've read so far it's really heartwarming. I find the plot easy read more

Surprisingly this story is really amazing.
Ageha, the main character, I like her because she is kinda like a regular teenager, with regular teenage problems. To be exact I'm kinda like her; I'm nice, but not all that calm, and I have a high temper.
Yukari is my main favorite(well actually both Ageha and Yukari). He may look like a handsome guy but he's actually a very violent person, that's what makes him so funny. No wonder, he haves a very high temper like Ageha!
Mistuya is a pervert. -_- Not really much huh? But he does help Yukari and Ageha with "love" issues. I'll give read more

Girl Works in store crazy HOT guys to brighten up her day! Oh and romance! May I say more??
They're both about a talented girl, though Kiri (BP - hairstyling) is more aloof and Ageha (VBR - designing bags, etc.) is more energetic. I like the art in both.
I also find the male (Narumi in BP, Arisaka in VBR) lead in both quite hilarious. I think if you like one, you'll like the other. =3
They're both created by the same author and artist, V.B. Rose is very heartwarming and is about a wedding store that is run and managed by 2 good lucking guys. The main character is strong, cheerful, and can be dependant on but is sometimes oblivious to the things around her.The art is very cute and they are touching and sad moments in the story just like Tears of a lamb. V.B. Rose is incredibly cute~ A must read. As for Tears of a lamb, tears of a lamb is lighthearted sometimes but it stays on the plot. There are many jokes and funny moments but you never forget to sypthazies the main character after discovering her past. Tears of a lamb is about a girl who wants to go into her classmates house who is a boy and he lives all alone, the boy constantly rejects her because of a secret that he is embarrassed about. As for the main character she wants to enter his house to retrieve something that is linked with her past.
The guy is always teasing the girl. Both have bishies!
The both series have a lead female character who has a sister complex :)
I think you would like to read V.B rose/skip beat beacuse they both have a special talent in the manga. They are both shojo mangas so they contain romance, slice of life and you just can´t help but to read them both over and over again.
