This series was on display at the library, so I decided to read it.

Well, everything in this manga is 0 to 100 with no in-between. Chikage feeling unfulfilled and disappointed at 31 is realistic, but her suicide attempt is handled so cartoonishly. Right now, all the characters feel really flat, and the way she becomes an idol is a bit too ridiculous. I was expecting Chikage to try to become a popstar/idol herself not basically be coerced into it..

Chikage seems to have about 3 love interests, but we all KNOW who she's going to end up with. I kind of like Tokita, but him trying to kiss her in the mouth while she was asleep is wrong. Still, he's the only character I vaguely like right now. I like that he has always noticed her and cares for her even now. I really hope Chikage doesn't try to date the 15-year musical prodigy. I don't know how that's going to work out for her.

Normally, I wouldn't be interested in reading the next volume, but I already have the next 4 with me. So ... until next time ( )

Cheesy good fun despite the unsettlingly casual pedophilic themes common to a lot of these Japanese romance manga.
