    Title: Act-age
    Story: Tatsuya Matsuki
    Art: Shiro Usazaki
    Genres: Shounen, Slice of Life
    Serialized in: Weekly Shounen Jump

    Publisher: Shueisha

    Status: Ongoing


    You can read it
    here


    Synopsis:
    Kei Yonagi comes from a poor family. Her father ran out on her and her two younger siblings, leaving her to fend for the family herself. When the opportunity comes to chase her dream of becoming an actress, Yonagi jumps at the chance. Catching the eye of Director Sumiji Kuroyama, Yonagi’s opportunity to shine has come. However, Yonagi’s talent for acting comes from her extreme and innate ability for Method Acting, one that various individuals note as potentially self-destructive.

    There are high chances this will be a short lived manga. I made this thread just in case it doesn't get axed soon. I personally really enjoyed this.​

    I updated the look of the thread and I added a link to where you can read the manga, since the translations are alive again, yay. And it looks like the manga won't be so short lived after all.

    We're still like 15 chapters behind but finally there is being scanlated again. I hope Fallen Angels doesn't stop it.

    Is a mistery what will happen to Act-tage. Isn't doing bad in rankings, is getting color pages, and in theory, it should be surviving. Yet volumes 3 and 4 were selling at the same time, weren't they?

    I've always been interested in Act-Age after Viz released the first 3 chapters a while back. The art and paneling leaves a bit to be desired, but I was interested in the story and the main character seemed interesting and fresh(or maybe I like her ahoge, because I've played Danganronpa and all). Anyways, finally caught up today, and I'm really liking it. Kei is quite the MC, and these new rival actors could be a sign of good things to come in the future.

    Liked how Yonagi turned the three into the bad guys which justified killing them in self-defense. Too bad Akane lost it because of the insensitivity of the situation those four were in, a setting which told them to try to kill each other in 5 minutes and they just managed to get a flow going between them. And then Yonagi just goes and says "you're all wrong, what are you doing?". Given Akane's background story we were also told this chapter it is no wonder she snapped like that. On the other hand her anger made her more intense and her friend more quick-witted, in other words because of the sudden change Yonagi show-cased the real worth of her three acting colleagues. So I doubt the director will not hire her if she got such qualities.

    After all stuff that happened with FA, it seems /a/ has decided to scanlate this too. For the moment, chapter 10 has been scanlated some hours ago.

    Still Akane losing her cool like that at the end when the others two were finally getting a flow for the scene does show she has a long way to go.
