The story centers around Keito Aoyama, a former famous child actor. Due to a childhood incident, she retired from her career early and withdrew from normal society. Now 16, she passes her days in boredom and without purpose. But one day she runs into a stranger who takes her to El Liston—a free school for high school students like herself, who don't have a place where they belong. Though hesitant at first, Keito decides to enter El Liston and subsequently, she begins a new stage in her life. With the help of her only remaining childhood friend, Taiyou, and her new classmates Rei, Momiji, and Kouichi, Keito slowly finds the courage to open up to others and to accept their support. Will Keito return to acting? Will she find true friends? Love?

I was super surprised to find that the author who wrote Cat Street was the same one who wrote Boys over Flower, and oh my god, Boys over Flower was so bad (I remember watching the anime adaptation of BoF and there was a sexual assault scene that plays off as romance. It was horrible)

Mixed Feelings
When I read this manga for the first time, I did'nt know that it was the same author of Hana yori dango. But after a while when I read more chapters, I started to notice the similarites of the characters. I recognised the feelings of fustration I got from Hana Yori Dango, when those feelings were coming back after reading Cat Street. It got fustrating with the annoying love triangels and slow romance. It was very fustrating to read. Cat Street did the exact same thing that Hana Yori Dango did. Create a promising romantic relationship between the main characters and kill it slowly till ...
