A great manga about high school girls and musical theater

by -

This manga is well-crafted all-around, with beautiful art, solid pacing, and believable characterization. The balance between drama and comedy is handled well, and I couldn't help but root for the main characters as they struggled along. Please be forewarned that there is a scene of a child being assaulted (not too graphic, but still potentially upsetting) and some others of a different character dealing with an eating disorder. Also, even though it's technically a complete series, there isn't a real "ending", but fortunately, Seven Seas has licensed its follow-up. I can't wait to read more!

Decent, but also not yuri as advertised

by -

This didn't sound like my thing but it had the "yuri" theme listed, so I gave it a go.

Turned out to be a solid "high-pressure, high-reward education" type story with a Takarazuka stand-in troupe as the prize. It's got a hard enough edge to have some bite and impact while striking a balance so it doesn't devolve into overkill melodrama or disguised child abuse.

But... it also doesn't have even a hint of yuri. None. So, indeed, just wasn't my thing, and I ended up annoyed at the mislabeling since I was reading expecting something that never materialized.

Maybe the sequel gets there, but don't come looking for any yuri here.

A hidden gem

by -

To begin, I have no experience or knowledge in theater, especially Japanese performing arts. Regardless, this book kept me engage from start to finish. I found myself laughing periodically at all the hidden anime puns made by the protagonist. I found myself sympathizing for the various characters and their individual mental health struggles. I found myself learning about Japanese performing arts in subtle way. If anything about this book caught your eye, I recommend you go for it!
