Saya is an ordinary lethargic female high school student. At karaoke while she was singing enthusiastically a song of her favorite artist, Takase Kazuki, the person himself was watching her…!?

I got bored one day and decided to read a random manga. This is how I came across 16 Life. The story was enjoyable and the plot was entertaining, but the girl was just too "typical shoujo drama queen" for me to be able to like or relate to. The main male character was amazing, like my favorite even when he became a douche-bag. He was hot, funny, and could sing. I loved the idea of "singing and rockstar centered" but I think it could've been done better and a little more drawn out and dramatic. Seriously, needed more drama!!!!
Overall, I give this manga a read more

There's something a little comforting about love stories that fall together quite perfectly, even if they're too perfect to be realistic. 16 Life is good for people who still believe in romance that springs up from nowhere, musical talent that brings people to their knees, men and women that are prettier than average, and drama that could only come up in TV shows.

I'll give you a glimpse. The protagonist, a girl who firmly believes that she should follow a straight path to a stable career, is scouted by a handsome music producer. Ooooh, what will happen next? What a surprise... EVERYONE knows what happens next. read more

I was rather impressed by the art and it looks ver cute and lovely ((even in the chibi form)) but the story is not that big of a romance all around type of story. It centers on Saya who as the protagosnist should go after her dreams and be a heroine.....well she doesn't do both at the beginning. Only after she meets Kazuki does she find her dream and begins to persue thantks to the help of him and his record company. The romance only brews many chapters later and it started as a convinience relationship. ((not so great for a person who wants romance read more

So I was updating my ps so I decided to read some shoujo mangas to kill time.

The art is pretty cute . It showed what the character is supposed to feel on that scenario.

Im a fan of shoujo mangas and storyline is pretty much common but still was enough to made me giggle and cry ( i really cried ) . I just loved that there is not that much of hateful rivals -- ahhh peace it is :)

Also I felt like some characters were really left out (well , it only has 2 vol sad ) . Well its Takase and Saya's story so read more
