Quick reminder that I LOVE Skip Beat by Yoshiki Nakamura

Why you ask?

*Badass female protagonist who is still very girly and believes in magic

*The entire plot if the story is revolved around her seeking revenge after the guy who broke her heart

*Her revenge is not her trying to bring this guy down ITS BRINGING HERSELF UP and proving than she’s not worthless like he thinks

*How does she do this? By becoming an ACTRESS!! HOLY SMOKES!!! AND SHES SO GOOD?? DAMN

*while it is a romance its a SLOW BURN HECK YEAH!! She learns to love herself first before putting her trust in another guy

*The other guy (while not liking her at first because of her reasons to join showbiz) warms up to her slowly and even becomes an acting mentor for her

*THE BACKSTORY TO THIS OTHER GUY WILL KILL YOU I SWEAR TO GOD

*All of the friendships she makes are well developed and thought out

*It’s super funny while still having very serious moments


tl;dr

SKIP BEAT IS AN AMAZING SERIES THAT YOU SHOULD DEFINITELY CHECK OUT IF YOU LIKE MANGA AND IF YOU EVER HAVE THE TIME
