I recently finished reading this manga and it got me really hooked up.

- The story is funny and romantic with the right amount of drama and seriousness. Although it's not like one of those type that you can say as "superb"romance manga, it is still very enjoyable to read. I like how the mangaka does not focus on the main characters only but instead gives everyone their own moment and a chance for character development as the story progressed.

- The art is great. I like how everyone is drawn especially Naka, her "criminal face" is super funny; (there was even a time when read more

For a first serialization, this is impressive. I first read this a couple of years back, when the complete scanlation was not yet available.

That being said, the story handles them well, and the cliches are minimal. The story is basically Naka and Umi's journey and growth as models and eventual romance, with many more characters to help or harm them along the way. It's slightly like a coming of age manga in read more

I just finished this manga and thoroughly loved the characters and the story plot line it was a really cute story for those who want a nice,sweet enjoyable story. Even though the manga is pretty long you should complete the whole thing and see for yourself if you really liked it or not. The art was very good depending on which source you get it from mine was a little blurry because mine wasnt on a good site but i still liked it.For characters the profiles are really cute and very well described and you can tell how their personalities come across. I enjoyed read more

i love how this story go. it's so simple yet exciting. i wondered how can this manga isnt populer. indeed, this is kind of cliche manga, but this manga is so lovely! once you start read it, no wonder if you dont want to stop. me too. when i read it i really really really dont want to stop. but, unfortunately, i need to go to school, so i stop read it for a few hours.

this manga is about a girl who cant smile, want to have a shining smile like the cute model umi, who is actually a boy! but the way author conveyed read more
