Preliminary
There are so many things I love about this manga. I am currently reading chapter 60 and all I can say is that it has been a beautiful ride.
As you can see in the synopsis this manga tell the story of the fateful encounter between a model with a scary face and a boy pretending to be a female model. But the truth is that there is so much more to this manga than what a short synopsis can tell you.
Honestly, I was starting to get tired of shoujo mangas. They were all the same: Love, love, love and more love. I wanted something deeper and I found it in Nousatsu Junkie.
It is incredible how well developed every character is, and how realistic the story gets.What I love the most about this manga is that every character has a goal to fight for and even when facing failure, because they fail many times, they are strong enough to keep moving forward. That is a real life lesson.
I also like the romance in this manga because of a very simple reason. Being in love is not an obstacle in the characters' life, but a force that pushes them to grow and to accomplish their goals in life.
If you are looking for a good shoujo manga with some depth to it, I would definitely recommend Nousatsu Junkie.
