Horiuchi Yutaka-san is a popular idol, who isn't as glamorous and happy as her fans may think. Naturally, her next steps include a radio show, but one she isn't all too keen on doing. Although she tries her best to keep up her image, things quickly turn for a worse. As she soon finds out, her voice is not hers alone.
The main protagonist starts to lose hope of being a top class idol in Japan, but with the help of a part time worker in a radio station, she starts to regain motivation. The story is very funny and very enjoyable to read. One a idol while the other is a entertainer. Imagine a idol that you adore on a radio station that broadcasts live with the help of a comedian but you never knew that the comedian was there. Why? Because the comedian and the idol have identical voices. Because of this coincidence the radio show becomes much more enjoyable.
Every chapter a new problem arises and its hilarious to see how they try to find the solution to a problem.
The characters are very cute in the manga. I can't get enough of the drawings and the characters in this manga. The main character and her friend are so adorable whenever they face a problem.
The idol is quite popular in the beginning of her debut but problems start within her agency which causes her to lose face, not just that on a radio show another person that sounds exactly like her makes dirty and funny jokes while deceiving everyone thinking it is the idol.
The comedian that stirs up this trouble is very funny but has some complex.
The characters of both the idol and comedian balance each other out very well in this story.
After reading a chapter I just want to read more. Its suspenseful but not the kind where its serious but on the other hand funny. The manga is a comedy manga and the genre is not something that is subtle in this manga. It makes you laugh and appeals you even more into this manga.
Quite a well made comedy manga that revolves around a idol that hosts a radio show.
I can't get enough of the cute characters and the funny punch lines they say. And the way they act is also very funny along with their reactions to certain events.
Highly recommend reading this. Assure you that you will not be disappointed when you read this.read more
First of all, I'm not sure if it's just taking a while to get the last 2 volumes of O/A translated, so I might not have seen the whole story yet!
O/A seemed fairly interesting at first, since I don't really get into the whole 'pop idol' genre of manga/anime. To be honest, this was a little tough to get into at first. I didn't really understand where it was going plot-wise, and the art wasn't really anything worth more than a "Oh, that looks decent."
But, it does get better! As you keep reading, you get to see more about Yutaka and her past, which is rather interesting. She also has some very interesting relationships, and the later chapters are a little heartwarming, even. The humor wasn't totally my style, since I'm not really into potty humor at all. So, unfortunately, I didn't really get any of the comedy aspect of this manga, which I think is a major part of it (I don't blame the manga for this, though).
I think the characters and their interactions are what saves this manga for me. It seems like every volume a new character is introduced, and their usually likeable and give us a new view on the previous characters, and provide some development, which is nice.
All in all, this was a fairly average manga for me, with the exception of Harumi, who almost makes it to my favorite characters list. If you like potty humor and the pop idol genre, I think it's worth a read.read more
