Haruka is about to graduate from a first-rate college and is looking for work but no one wants to hire her. Faced with the prospect of becoming a "shuushoku rounin" she finally lowers her expectations and decides to apply at a tiny talent agency for a job as an agent. When she shows up for the interview however, it's like no interview she's ever had before. She's asked all sorts of embarrasing questions and asked to say lines in front of a camera. Later she finds out that they thought she was interviewing to become a talent, and the agent position she wanted has already been given away. However, they think she has that special quality that can make someone a star. She refuses at first, but finally gives in. Thus starts Haruka's career in the entertainment industry.

Haruka is a 22-year-old college senior looking for a job, she's the nerdy A-star student that has no life with professor parents (Oh! I get it, that's why...). So you'd think that Miss Logical-thinking would have been begged for by job agencies, right? Wrong. Suprisingly (I mean not really suprisingly in Manga world), no agency wants her which sucks... For her since her average-grades-friend got a job. Life's not great for our dear Haruka because her Mom says that if she doesn't get a job... She's coming back home from Tokyo and get [LE GASP!] married! [ Seriously guys, why this hate for marriage? read more

Normally I don't review anything that i haven't completed, but I will make this as an exception because I really like it. I think it has a lower score than it deserves and I don't want anyone missing out on this manga because it's really good.

Haruka 17 is about a college student who can't get a job so she lowers her standards and applies for a manager job at s shady looking talent agency. As it turns out, she accidentally auditions as a talent and is forced to work as a talent pretending to be 17 years old.

From the premise, it doesn't sound all that read more
