I haven't been able to get ahold of any chapters past 11 but from what I've read so far, this manga is very enjoyable!

While this is definitely within the shoujo manga category, I think that its mystery elements make it much more interesting than a typical shoujo series. Although the nature of the manga is episodic, there are already hints in what I've read of the overarching plot regarding Shiho's past and how she is growing as a character. In addition, I like that the main romance changes both characters and therefore, creates an interesting relationship.

Overall, this is a great shoujo read and read more

Quite a nice lill manga. About a so called "Private Actress" that take on real-life acting roles, such in some cases fake girlfriendss or pretend daughter. There are some overlapping storytelling between chapters but for the most part each and every chapter deals with a separte case. The first for instance, deals with a man with a short time left to life, and also who had a daughter who was killed years earlier although he hasn't been able to accept this. Someone close to him hires our main character to play the "found alive" daughter in hopes of giving him some closing happiness.

As each chapter read more
