This story is a spinoff from Narita Minako-sensei's own series "Cipher" where Siva's friend Alex Levine is now the main character. Ever since Alex was young, he has harbored a complex about his extremely pretty face. People are always comparing him to a girl, so to combat this image, he has thrown himself into practicing martial arts. One day, though, he is scouted by someone to become a fashion model and thus begins Alex's tale of growth and romance!

As a sidenote, for the "Cipher" fans out there, Siva, Cipher, and Anise also make cameos in the series, so you can find out a little bit about what happened to them as well!

Such a heart-warming manga.
I finished it yesterday after a few hours of reading. I thought that I would just try a chapter or two, but at the end I read all 35 chapters. That says it all. :)

The story takes place in the United States, 1991. All the character are American, except of one Japanese guy, who is a minor character. In addition, the manga is a spin-off of the manga "Cipher', but it is not necessary to read "Cipher" first. I haven't read "Cipher", and I enjoyed and understood the plot of "Alexandrite" very much. I would give 8 to the story.
