Here's a short synopsis from onemanga:
The heroine is highschooler Yura, whose mother is one of Japan's most famous and beautiful actress; and father is a World famous Musician. Yura is quiet, and gets nervous in front of crowds. People around often compare her to her famous parents. Yura's world gets rocked with the sudden return of her actress mother, coldly announcing her divorce to Yura's father, who got caught having an affair and Yura's mom has no intention of taking care of their high school daughter. But this just isn't enough, Yura later on finds her mother having sex with her neighbor/best friend/ first love!! Yura then wants to destroy her mother's beautiful actress image and decides to become an actress herself and beat her mother. There starts the fun! Yura's troubles and success' in trying to become an actress, her meeting lots of beautiful actors and singers and idols. A love triangle is in the air..

ok not so short...but it's another manga by Miki Aihara that's currently ongoing, and I've picked it up and have been following it ever since it began. So far I like it, although I'm scared it'll turn out overly melodramatic just as Hot Gimmick. Also, both of the heroines are so..damn love crazy. Esp. now that Yura's starting to show signs that she cares more abt love than work...But so far so good. Just like Hot Gimmick, it's a love triangle..or quadruple again? I'm secretly wishing she'd end up w/ her Shachou, because I don't like Q-ta and I want Haruka to myself xD

Sry for the wordy rant, but what do you guys think abt the manga?

=O!

I love Honey Hunt! Thank goodness someone else knows it! I'm starting to like the story so far. :]

Oh, and I read it from Shojo Beat magazine. That's the only reason I buy it.

I like the manga so far... but I wish the mangaka would focus more on other aspects of the story other than romance. Sure romance is nice... love triangles are nice too, even a quadruple-angle? (trapezoid! lol) are ok too I guess. I'm just scared, by the way the story is going, it's going to turn into a big dramatic sob story.

P.S I kind of hope she will end up with haruka. He seems to genuinely like her =P
Her manager is a bit over protective, or rather controlling...
Q-ta has a cute personality, I don't mind her with him, but Haruka is the best choice! =P

I like it but I wish it would focus on her career and not just the romance

And I bet a million dollars she's end up with Haruka...

because I think if this will somehow be like Hot Gimmick then...
Q-ta = Azusa
Haruka = Ryoki
her manager ( i can't remember his name >< ) = Shougo

lol trapezoid. I agree w/ you, I wish it would focus more on her job as an actress (like Skip Beat) I also think Haruka's the best choice too. Q-ta's too cutesy, and the I think the only reason he's coming on to her in the recent chapters is because he feels threatened by Shachou and Haruka.

Its quite readable I guess, but I just don't like the Q guy .. lol..

I guess its the mangaka's style, you can look at her other works.. Romance & Harem .... and the girl always being the more innocent type

What I like about this one is that Yura is not as clingy and submissive as Hatsumi from "Hot Gimmick". She had the guts to tell her parents to go fuck themselves, and to do something different with her life.

I don't want to see her with any of the guys from the series. Maybe with Haruka, but not with Q-ta or Keiichi (the manager).


EDIT!!!

I have started to dislike this series because Yura-chan is not the girl I though she'd be. She's now all crazy about Q-ta, and has lost all her desire to prove her mother she's wrong.
