Ai Maekawa is a jimi—a homely, studious girl. After being horribly embarrassed by a popular student towards the end of middle school, Ai uses the break between middle and high school to carry out a complete makeover. Between dieting, makeup and new clothes, Ai makes herself into a beauty. Imbued with newfound confidence, she decides to pursue Sô Ichinose, the most handsome and popular boy in her class. Over the course of the series, Ai attempts to win and keep Sou's affections, as well as friends both female and male.

I really wish I could say I liked this series- the art was good, and the main SIDE characters are likable, but I didn't. The plot itself was VERY superficial, and sent a VERY negative message towards its target audience. The message the plot was trying to give out is to get friends, and to get a boyfriend, that a girl must change not only her appearance(become 'beautiful'), but also her entire personality as well. It also was giving the message that overweight people can never get a boyfriend because "no one will ever like them for their personality alone; it's just a fantasy", and read more

“Oh I’m getting an erection. Is it touching your back?”

I laughed I’m sorry but that up there is funny, which is the type of humor you find in Doubt!! You have to appreciate honest truths, even creepy ones.

Having been an ugly duckling for all of her life and tired of people not noticing her in a good way, Ai decides, ‘enough is enough.’ During one summer she turns herself from a nerd into a princess, with a lot of effort, she looks completely different and the new school she’s starting will bring forth her “new and improved” life. Everything is going according to plans read more

At first I really enjoyed this series. I thought the protagonist has a very strong personality and fights until the end, and most of the time doesn't take creap from anyone, but there are many sides that made me dislike her. This series talks about a girl who was a geek before and when she entered high school she gave herself a makeover and made herself beautiful. I thought this was very superficial. I thought this girl tried to hard to become beautiful, and I believed she was a fake (she's trying too hard). This series talks about a girl who just makes a disguise read more

Being that I identified with Ai Maekawa, I particularly enjoyed this series. (I too was a girl that blossomed in high school). It's short, which helps the storyline to move along without much filler. The story is definitely deeper than a high school girl trying to rise to popularity; it focuses more on the psychological struggles of a girl thrust into the high school spotlight (without getting too deep). If anything, this series somewhat spoofs the whole high school hierarchy issue. And it definitely has quite a few "OMG what?" *burst into laughter* moments. I own all the volumes read more
