When a young girl loses her confidence to dance, she fears she'll never set foot on the stage again. But then she falls in love with an all-guy avant-garde dance troupe and their leader...and everything changes. Soon, her primary goal in life is to join the troupe and snag the guy. So what if she's missing a Y-chromosome? She's got spunk, skill, and passion--and, in the end, she hopes that love will conquer all. (Source: Tokyopop)

quite surprised nobody has written a review for this manga. i'd easily rate it as the best Ashihara Hinako's work, definitely much better than sand chronicles (did i mention that i hate that series?). art is clean and effective, story is short but just right, and fortunately there's none of the everyday-life that is most of the time overdone in shojo. The best is that there's no horrible 'love triangle' or love polygon whereby every single male member of COOL falls in love with aya. and she herself is unwavered in love. That's good and refreshing.
