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.

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 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
