15 year-old schoolgirl Sara has a big secret. She is the "Sala" that is the new top singer! No one knows whether "Sala" is a boy or a girl. She is a huge fan of the no. 1 group "The Rise" who's lead singer, Hayase Shidou, attends Toua High, a Special entertainment school along with Sara.

Sara finds that her boyfriend is cheating on her, and to add insult to injury, she is dumped! He was only attracted to her by her likeness to "Sala." Hayase gets revenge for her in an unusual way which seems to bring them closer together...but will this be allowed by Sara's mother who is "Sala"'s producer and co-president of Star Studios? It's a fact that the true identity of "Sala" cannot be revealed, especially not to the lead singer of her main rival "The Rise."

This is my first review and, honestly, I feel this is a manga worth reviewing. What I really liked about this manga was that even though it is a very typical shoujo story-wise it is a little different. While most other shoujo become very dramatic and angst ridden in the end, this one wasn't. I'm not gonna give any spoilers, but it is very consistent in feeling all the way through.

this is the first time that i would be reviewing. Of course, this is the first manga that i will be reviewing.

the manga is A-W-E-S-O-M-E..
the art is O-U-T-S-T-A-N-D-I-N-G as well as EVERYTHING.

i was totally drawn by the manga, and couldn't help not to know the ending of it. Ah but it's too bad that it's just short.

anyways, it's a highly-recommended manga.

satisfaction guaranteed!
