Nakamura Mei is a very simple high school girl. While at a cafe with her friends, they bump in to -none other than- the model Shirou's table. Mei apologizes and that's when Shirou notices something. Grabbing her he takes her outside with him and reveals that Mei was once a kids model—and that he's her idol-otaku!?
Hmm...surprised that nobody has written a review for this manga yet. It's a cute read.
It's a sweet, light-hearted story about a plain girl, Nakamura Mei, who once was a popular child model, but due to certain reasons she quit the modelling world and went on to a normal school-life. One day, while at a cafe with her friends, she bumps into a famous model, Shirou. She apologises, and that's when Shirou immediately senses something about her. Grabbing her to a private place, he mentions her past as a child model and reveals something surprising about him...and due to this meeting, Mei is suddenly dragged
back to the modelling world.
Not the most original story, but still quite heart-warming. People have mixed views about the ending, but personally I think it's very realistic and completely satisfying.
I have always loved Takagi Shigeyoshi's art. It's so clean yet beautiful and compliments the story very well. Once again, she never fails to let me down with her art. I have always thought that her and Morie Satoshi's art was very very similar, and it turns out they're twin sisters O_O
Haha, I love all the characters. I found Mei to be really sweet and charming, and Shirou's true character was quite surprising, but I still love it. All the other characters were also amusing, and I didn't have the feeling of wanting to punch the computer screen because of an irritating character, because I didn't find that any of them were. Well, maybe a few were, but they were only side-characters. The character development was quite good too; Mei grew stronger throughout the series and so did Shirou.
I really enjoyed this series. It was so sweet, fluffy and touching, perfect for those who just want a light read to wash the hard feelings away. For those who want something more serious, maybe this isn't the manga to read, but even so, I found it quite memorable.
Overall, I give it an 8/10. I really wish that the series was longer, but that's my only criticism really. The ending, I found was nice, but some parts of me really do want a sequel. Ah well, good read though. Another great work, Takegi-sensei!
This is a comedic short manga that is perfect for a little manga break when you dont have the time to read something long. The story is pretty light hearted however the deeper meaning is beautifully portrayed. In a short span, you see the characters grow and develop, helping each other out of the dark along the way. Shirou and Mei balance each other out and inspire each other to try their hardest, being the best they can be. The story does not leave much room for dissatisfaction although the ending may not exactly be what readers may have hope for. The art is beautifully
drawn helping evoke a feeling of fondness and empathy for the characters.
