Synopsis

A country girl in the big city, Yu doesn't quite understand just how hard it is to make it big. So when she's enraptured by a play, she immediately declares it her life's mission to become a great actress. Unfortunately, she has no knowledge of the craft, no experience, and no skills aside from making good curry—not that that kind of thing would ever stop her.

So, Ashita no Ousama is a shoujo from the 90's. It has good story and romantic lines. I found it at a time that I wanted another original and different shoujo. What you want to know: it's about a very country girl who suddenly figures out she wants to be in theater for the rest of her life. She puts her all into attending school and pursuing this hobby and meets a lot of good people. She fails in some areas, succeeds in others.

Ashita no Ousama revolved around Yuu, a country girl who becomes exposed to the world of acting and is entranced. She wants to become an actress, but has no aptitude for acting but is a great storywriter. From there she meets and influences many others that are in the entertainment world.

Story 9/10: The story line was great. There was a lot of growth in the feeling of the story. Emiko Yachi does a great job of showing the complexities of the acting profession as well as human relations.

Art 9/10: At first I didn't really care for the animation, I thought it was drawn read more

Ashita no Ousama is a story about an average girl who falls in love with theater and discovers a hidden talent. If you're into shoujo manga, this sounds very familiar so when i first started reading this i was afraid it was gonna be another Glass Mask or Skip Beat but i was pleasantly surprised. This manga was not perfect, but a nice read nevertheless.

To touch on the art for a bit, it's from the 90s, so you get what you expect. You get used to it after a bit, but nothing looks particularly pretty. At one point, the main character mentions someone is beautiful read more
