    [Shoujo] Skip Beat! by Nakamura Yoshiki



    Title: Skip Beat!
    Author: Nakamura Yoshiki
    Genre: Shoujo, Drama, Comedy, Romance
    Status: Ongoing
    Year: 2002
    Publisher: Hakusensha (J), Viz Media (E)
    Current Scanlation Groups: Maximum7 and MangaStream, Mechgouki

    Summary by MangaUpdates:
    Kyoko Mogami is the childhood friend of superstar Sho Fuwa. Kyoko was so mindlessly in love with Sho that she followed him to the city on his quest to become a famous singer. But she soon realizes Sho was only using her as his personal maid to take care of household chores and pay for rent. Heart-broken, Kyoko won't suffer in silence--she's going to get her sweet revenge by beating Sho in show biz!

    A funny and entertaining romance story of a "diamond in the rough" trying to find her place in showbiz, and the mysterious pasts of the people around her.

    Babble:
    This is one of my most fav shojo ever; Kyouko is just hilarious is some scenes esp when her "demons" come out. I love the fact that she didn't feel sorry for herself after she was dumped and opted to seek revenge

    Nakamura Yoshiki - Her heroines rock! They're not pathetic whiny little girls

    So...Who's your fav character? Fav couple? Fav scene? Future predictions? Talk about it here.

    Well, so far i've only read upto vol. 5 (if i'm not mistaken). I was really surprised when i learned that in reality it takes teh same effort like Kyouko, or perhaps more, to be an idol/actress.

    Wow, that's a good one, Twile! You can actually talk about more on the series that you've read

    And Ichi read this too!!! Yeah!!!

    Alright, back to topic, the demons for Kyoko, sometimes i get it, sometimes i don't. I thought they are funny, and they can be subdued too. Amazing that in some situations, a few people around Kyoko can actually feel her demonic or 'hostile' presence.

    For me, my favourite character is Ren! I find him the most charming and pretentious fellow he can be! The meaning behind his megawatt smile is the best (as shown further on). And yes, his secretiveness, his past, up till Vol 16, there is no hint of what was really his past actually, and that is a big question question mark!

    What about the rest of you? Anyone else read this yet too?

    Re: Skip Beat! - Discussion

    I just started reading it this sunday, and I gotta hand it to N.Y., She makes bad ass heroines.

    I'm a bit sad though that the Skip Beat Group stopped scanlating it, as I just got some raws for 110 waiting in one of my Word Documents.

    Say, anyone interested in translating it?

    Re: Skip Beat! - Discussion

    This is a great series. I like where it is heading at the moment but I need some love scenes happening!! lol. I'm such a huge Kyoko x Ren shipper. My most favourite scene was around chapter 81 (? I think) My memory is sketchy... when Ren has to come up with his character's personality (he's a teacher in love with a student) and then such and such happens and he ends up in quite a compromising position with Kyoko. I squealed for days.

    I think I like this series alot because Kyoko isn't your traditional heroine (though the mangaka has a habit of doing unconventional heroines lol) and she fights for what she believes in. I do believe though she's getting slightly angsty at times and she's quite... aloof when it comes to Ren.

    I love the psychic guy... can't remember his name o.O anyone help me?

    0.0 I read this in one night (all 16 volumes) and am reading 110 right now.

    I just can't help but think about Kaikan Phrase (Shinjo Mayu) when I read this manga. They're VERY similar, and I haven't done any investigations though on which came first. What do you guys think?

    Hehe. Nakamura-sensei's works have that effect on me too. I can't put them down! To answer your question, Kaikan Phrase ran from 1997 to 2000. Skip Beat started in 2002. Can't comment on the similarities since I never read Kaikan Phrase (only saw the anime, which is quite different from the manga, I heard).

    I think there was a break after Chapter 110, but it started again last issue.

    Chapter 111 - Hana to Yume #20 (on sale 9/20)
    Chapter 112 - Hana to Yume #21 (on sale 10/5) <-- current issue
    Chapter 113 - Hana to Yume #22 (on sale 10/20)

    I found scans for 111 (Jpn only) from this site. Uploaded a mirror here in you don't like online viewers (Mediafire). 112 should be out too, but haven't seen any scans yet.

    Lastly, volume 17 releases on 10/19!

    Re: Skip Beat! - Discussion

    I can't quite agree with the similarity between Kaikan Phase and Skip Beat. Kyoko has so much more strength and, in my opinion, personality! She fights on her own, and doesn't expect others to come to her rescue, which makes her very thankful (not in a corny way) to whoever comes through for her.

    I really want Ren to be more open about his feelings, since she's still oblivious to ever having a chance with him. At the same time, I'm glad they have such a solid friendship right now.

    I would love to be Kyoko's friend... there are times when her evil side is very very much like mine. I just can't eject demons to attack.
