Beauty Pop -
A Manga full of laughs, seriousness, and slight hints of romance. Its a wonderful and enjoyable manga and I'm surprised barely anyone reviewed on it. The Story mainly focuses on Kiri Koshiba; girl gifted with the talent of hairstyling and is the daughter of the famous hairstylist Seiji Koshiba. Her life has changed ever since she encounters the S,P (Scissors Project); three popular guys at Ryokufuu High School that gives the selected girls a beauty touch. I really liked this manga because of its style and the funniness.
I liked the Art, it was very neatly drawn and also funny. Their looks really suit their personality and you could make out right away if the character is bad or not.
Ha, My favourite thing about beauty pop. I like the characters a lot; especially Kiri. She has the i-don't-care-just-go-with-the-flow personality in her, and to me she mostly lives inside her mind. Thats what makes her so enjoyable and funny x3 Each of the characters has a different personality, but that doesn't change the laughter they can bring you.
Yeah, I enjoyed this manga a lot. It's one of those kind that keeps you reading from the very first chapter. I hope it never ends, but of course that isn't possible.
Overall, I liked it a lot. Although the Romance doesn't stick out a lot, the comedy really keeps you from wanting it. I want everyone to read it since its not very popular : (
thanks for listening. ^_^ read more
Beauty Pop is an exellent manga to laugh. The genre is comedy, and it is.
Kiri Koshiba, the daughter of legendary hair stylist Seji Koshiba, has golden hands if it comes to hairstyling (just like her dad). But she don't really care about that fact, and that's what makes it funny, I think. Kiri always has troubles with her rival, Narumi. Narumi is the son of the owner of the biggest hair salon in Japan and he's pretty good in hairstyling too.
The art is really good; it is fine to read and it looks so cute, even the 'bad' guys!
Beauty Pop has a sweet story, but even a sweet story can be exiting. Some characters are a little bit weird, but I like them all. If you like action, you don;t have to try this one. It is one of my favourite manga.
I hope you'll enjoy it! read more
A realistic, snarky girl is thrust into the world of an over-the-top club of boys in her school. These are lighthearted shoujo series that are similar in both premise and sense of humor and fun.
Even though one is about hosting and the other is about hairstyling, the characters are so similar in their personalities and even character designs.. (Ochiai is way too similar to Kyouya). Aside from that they're both lighthearted comedy romance stories that have fun twists. If you really liked Ouran you defenitely have to check out Beauty Pop... you won't be disappointed!
They are both funny and a little bit strange
Stoic females leads asked to join the male-only clubs at their high schools that specially cater to the female students. Both are really funny, and though the characters share similarities they are definitely not clones of each other which makes both of them worth the read.
Both stories are of a 'reverse harem' nature. But while Ouran has a 'Host Club' about making girls happy by ways of acting romantical, in Beauty Pop they have a 'Scissors Project' club to make girls happy by giving them a new outward appearance; haircut, manicure and makeup styles.
Both stories are captivating and intriguing, making you interested in what adventures will take place for these popular clubs. Both of the female leads are intelligent and somewhat blunt, but romance comes along for both of them along the way. It happens lot faster in Ouran than in Beauty Pop, but it is very enjoyable either way.
Very similar type of main girl and also similar type of guys. The situation's the same too. It's a reverse harem with one girl being the centre of the boys.
While reading both mangas some points can be distinctly pointed out for example,
-Similar characterization, both the protagonists have a coherent and ‘I don’t give a damn’ attitude and rest of the characters are also very similar be it humorous, hyper or just plain evil.
-Both the male protagonists are rich and start their own wacky yet popular club. They also ‘rise above’ their own superiors like parents or grandparents.
-The comical fathers with their never-ending teasing.
-Both female Protagonists are brave yet they are scared of trivial things like the 'thunder' or ‘cockroaches’.
-They both have Clubs that makes an impact on majority of the female population of the school
Overall, it seems that both of the manga have an almost similar plot line (albeit the fact that “Beauty Pop” concentrates on hairstyling more) however, both manga have their own unique way of showing the sentiments. This lighthearted romantic comedy in many ways resembles “Ouran High School Host Club" with times that make you want to laugh real hard, times that put you in the edge, times that makes you all teary and not to mention the overwhelming feeling of love and friendship that comes around in the later chapters.
A realistic, I-Don't-Care type of girl is pretty much forced to be around a bunch of cute guys who love beauty.
The SP team members are just the same as in Ouran. Both mangas shere the same feeling - you just smile all the way during reading it.
Well...I have to say, the two resemble each other in a lot of ways. They're both very enjoyable series. Both heroines are aloof, both heroines are poor. Both male leads are rich, both male leads think highly of themselves. There's also the intelligent black haired, glasses wearing friend of the male lead. I'm sure if you find one series enjoyable, you'll like the other.
- they both have main characters, who are very confident, both in their personality and there skills.
- both main characters are actually left handet. especially when they use there special skills.
- they both have a lazy father, who train the main characters to improve there skills.
- Both fathers were professional, but they gave up on their dreams, due to some unknown sercomstances ( sorry, don't know if I misspelled it )
- they both have a team, who compete against other teams.
- both main characters, have a cat, as they both love very much.
Although they might not seem like they're similar at first, since one is a shoujo about makeovers and the other is a shounen about tennis, they have a lot in common.
The main character is very aloof and does not show emotions very often, and they have a lot of admirers. Their father used to be a very famous beautician/tennis player, and the main character follows his footsteps and is often compared to him (though many are surprised when they learn the main character's identity).
There are competitions and lots of crazy made up techniques, as well as a lot of cheap tricks and cheating, though the good guys always win! Anyways... Both are highly recommended.
One's shojo, the other one is shonen. One is about beauty competitions the other is about tennis. But once you start reading you'll realize how similar the main characters are and how they handle situations in a cool and composed manner.
