There are two manga series that I've been keeping up with that are very much like Skip Beat!

http://www.onemanga.com/Honey_Hunt/ Honey Hunt, is about a 17-year-old girl named Yura who doesn't stand out at all even though her mother is a famous actress and her father is a famous composer. Her mother pretends to be a good mother when in public but in private is rude and nasty to her daughter, and her father has been overseas for over a year.

When she comes home one day she finds out her parents are not only getting a divorce but her mother has been having an affair with the college boy Yura loved next door!

To get back at her mother she decides to enter Show Business and decides to become and actress.

http://www.onemanga.com/The_One/ The One is about a Taiwanese girl who steps into the modeling business. At first she has no interest in the business her mother was one a part of before she died, but a artist photo of the internationally famous model Angus, convinces her that there might be more to modeling then she originally thought.

Both of the above are like Skip Beat!

http://www.onemanga.com/Usagi_Drop/ Usagi Drop isn't like Skip Beat! at all but it's a sweet story, It's about a 30-year-old single man who takes in 5-year-old Rin and learns not only about how to be a father, but about family life.

Usagi Drop is slow, but extremely adorable.

So what Manga/ Anime are you currently watching?

Well recently I've started watching Shugo Chara, and I love it! :D

And I also really like the mangas Beauty Pop and Lovely Complex. They're both so cute and funny. xD

You can read them at mangavolume.com (that's where I read them. ^^)

For manga, my suggestions would be Tokyo Crazy Paradise, an earlier work by the same author as Skip Beat!, Tail of the Moon by Rinko Ueda, and W-Juliet by Emura. All three are completed, and only TCP has not been published in english (though it is available online). On the anime front, Overdrive, ToraDora, and Touch. Touch is old, but still enjoyable.

An anime that I am watching right now is Library Wars. Its not on crunchyroll, so I watch it on megavideo. Its a very good realistic fiction anime about a girl that entered an army-like organization to protect japanese free speech/books/libraries/etc.. The only way it is similar to skip beat is that it is a comedy/romance, but it is also pg-13 on the orange eel scale, so it is a very good drama that way too. Very sweet anime, you should watch it!

There are a ton of manga i like. however, i guess my top favorites would have to be:

Naruto by Masashi Kishimoto
Skip Beat (of course) by Yoshiki Nakamura (as well as one of her other works-Tokyo Crazy Paradise)
Beauty Pop by Kiyoko Arai
Koukou Debut by Kazune Kawahara
Lovely Complex by Aya Nakahara
Honey Hunt by Miki Aihara
Pig Bride by Kook Hwa Huh and Su Jin Kim

and the convenient thing is that they can all be read on mangafox (except for honey hunt, which can be found on onemanga)

Yeah, I get it that you like these animes, but I am still cautious about reading/watching them because i have no idea what their rating is! I am also looking for animes to watch, but I am very sensitive rating-wise, so I don't want to run into an anime that I can't watch. Please, in all the next posts, try to put a personal rating onto it. Ne? Arigato.

I read Honey Hunt too <3

Have you tried The One? It's similar. You may like it too. It's on One Manga too.

I'll be honest though... I really... really hate mangafox. It's an attack site. Every time I read manga there I get pop-ups from adult sites and fake computer support spams. I can't log into it anymore, I'm afraid of the trash it's going to dump on my computer.

And I have great virus protection!

Has anyone else noticed this with the site?

That's because Honey Hunt is a new release... Still being published in Japan I think.
