I found Beauty Pop to be enjoyable. My favorite genre is rom-com and although I can say that Beauty Pop had both of these things in it was a bit skimpy on romance. If you like to laugh and don't enjoy up front romance this manga is for you. I am not saying that the romance is non-existent it just not the main influence. Overall though the story is interesting with likable characters that don't really get on your nerves. Its art work is pretty good and the story is descent. It really lacks in the pacing. It goes from kind of slow to really
energetic in the blink of an eye. Some story arcs you want more details about and it just moves on leaving behind some answers. It also stays on some story arcs a little longer than necessary. I highly recommend checking it out though despite the pacing because the comedy more than makes up for it.
Beauty Pop is a lovely story with fantastic characters!
The story wasn't to complicated and it was easy to follow but only enjoyable to read, and the characters are all well drawn and got their own (incredably cute) personality. Yes, the story in the beginning wasn't all my cup of tea, but the more I read the more I fell in love with the humor and the characters.
The art overall maybe isn't all that outstanding, but allthough it was sometimes a little plain the drawing style is cute and wery sutable towards the story.
I'm surprised that this comic isn't among the most popular ones. It's a beautiful storyline and makes me laugh, cry, scream, and worry.
It's about a girl named Kiri who is a very amazing hairstylist but she doesn't want to be in the beginning. She's far from being a Mary Sue because she has her flaws, which are a very limited emotional range, and if you ask Narumi, the main guy, she's not even a girl.
Narumi on the other hand is a gifted hairstylist, nowhere near Kiri's talent, and he plans to be the number one hairstylist in Japan. This boy has a very
wide emotional range, as I have yet to find a part where he is not freaking out about something. He's allergic to girls (Which is very funny to me) and he's a little bit of a jerk.
I laugh at all the relationships Kiri has, one being a little girl who thinks Kiri's her prince, another is a boy obsessed with Kiri because he's obsessed with her mother, a make up artist who was best friends with Narumi, another great hairstylist who's been through a rough time, and last but not least, Narumi.
I loved the way that Kiri helped people, Narumi and other hairstylists all chose people that were beautiful to make beautiful, she always went with the people that needed it the most.
I'm hooked on Beauty Pop for it's comedy, storyline, art, characters, romance, everything in it pretty much. It's an awesome comic that I hope you love.
Beauty Pop was a great read overall, and it had a great plot through out the whole thing, not leaving much to be asking about. It was full of laughs, but you could also see the romance in it as well.
Art & Character = 10
The whole making people beautiful thing wasn't really on my lists of what I liked, but this manga really made me sort of like it. The characters were well thought out, and their expressions fit them. The art kept the same the whole way through the manga, which I've noticed doesn't happen in all of the manga now. The
bodies were drawn perfectly, and the hairstyles were amazing. It didn't give me any empty feeling in the looks department.
Enjoyment = 10
This manga was great, and it made me laugh multiple times as well. It kept me looking for the next chapter each time. Before I knew it, I was done the series. XD
