Synopsis:

Kyoko Mogami followed her true love Sho to Tokyo to support him while he made it big as an idol. But he's casting her out now that he's famous! Kyoko won't suffer in silence--she's going to get her sweet revenge by beating Sho in show biz!

Volume 1:
Kyoko knows she's not plain and uninteresting, no matter what Sho says. With the help of a little makeover, Kyoko's ready to exact her revenge. But first she needs to land an audition, and she sets her sights on the agency where Sho's lead rival works. Her persistence pays off, but her broken heart turns out to be a disadvantage. Kyoko has lost the will to love anybody, let alone fans she's never met. Can the agency see past this problem to Kyoko's true star potential?

I love this manga! It is funny and the storyline is interesting. It's not the typical girl likes boy. image

Nope, I read actual copies. I have volume 1-15 (hooray for Chinese publishers). I don't really like the main guy though, he's not in there much anyway. I wish there are more romance in this....and not so much side stories....But it's still a very good manga and for once the main girl is a strong individual (she's so funny)

I hope V.G. stick around. I think they add a little twist to the story.

I've read what's out [up to V5, I think]

keke, I like it :) Not enough for me to buy it though...but it's pretty funny, I kept laughing when I read it at Borders today...:lol: I want to see the pink jumpsuit!

I thought it was refreshing, especially her REASON for going into showbiz...it's different from the usual boy-meets-girl and boy = celebrity story lines...

:lol: In Volume 4, when she's in the chicken costume xD

^TOKYO CRAZY PARADISE IS THE BOMB! OMFG RYUUJI AND TSUKASA ARE THE LOVE.

*coughcoughcough* Anyways, I'd say that if anyone loves Skip Beat, they should look at Tokyo Crazy Paradise. I love Kyoko in SB, and her little demons are the absolute love and hilarious. Although Shou just makes me want to smack him at times...*sighs*

Be a member of the Skip Beat yahoo groups, you'll get all the chapters there, well maybe not all, some are yet to be translated, but yeah.

I went to join, but it said they DON'T have scantalations, and not to ask for them...anyone know somewhere I could get volume eight chapter 45 and up from?

I love Skip Beat!

I just read chapter 106 and its getting SO interesting. I love how the manga never seems to get boring or dragged out. I can't wait to find out what happens.

btw.....I think TCP is one of the best mangas i've read. I even like it better than Skip Beat.

haha I thought it was hilarious. I liked the overall story though some parts I could do without (like all mangas). And it was the first Nakamura Yoshiki manga i've read and I really liked her style.

I know a page where they have some newer/hard to find chapters. The rest you can get on mIRC lol. Which are you looking for? You can PM me for the page if you want.

just finished chapter 47 (yup totally new to this manga). I. LOVE. THIS. PERIOD. hahaha oh my god it's been soooo freakin' long since I ever read anything GOOD related to acting after, of course, Glass mask. And it's hilarious as well. I was like...laughing out loud whenever Kyoko is lost in her crazy thoughts lolz (i was searching "skip beat scanlations" on google and stumbled on this thread :D --> will PM the person above ^_^) I love how Shou is totally a jerk but slowly he realizes his feelings for Kyoko, in a very realistic way (not in a, say, "oh my god she transformed into this beautiful girl so I must love her" kind of way). And of course Ren is awesome too ^_^

So, that's my ranting, because I just have to do it, somehow, somewhere :D
