Synopsis:
Her father passed away very early and her mother lives and works in a crowded Chinese restaurant. Kitajima Maya, a 13-year old girl, has to carry the burden of making ends meet as she fights against her ill fate. However, she is able to overcome the trials and tribulations in her life with her passion and enthusiasm. She happens to encounter the reclusive actress Tsukikage who decides to train and mould her into the foremost actress of her generation.

It's one of my favourite animes! :D
My sister recommended me to watch it and I was hooked after watching the 1st episode! :D
I love Maya's dedication to her roles and her acting skills!!! Each of the Maya's plays is wonderful in its own way, but I prefer her part of the doll and "Hellen Keller". It's really interesting to watch her preparations to the roles too!
As for me, I prefer Maya to end up with Masumi in the end, they look so great together!!!
Too bad they upload the episodes so slowly! I've been watching it for almost a year now!

I always loved the part where she would 'transform' into the character she was playing. She has such awesome dedication to her acting too, like when she was going to be Beth in Little Women so instead of just practicing with the others she 'became' Beth full time in order to better understand her. Maya is such an awesome girl.

Woohoo, and a Glass Mask thread
I love this series; it's inspiring and heartening, and - as prettyrangers says - I love Maya's dedication to her roles and acting skills! But I think Maya should end up with Sakurakoji instead of Masumi (eh, I still think he's too old for her).

All of Maya's plays are very captivating because she really delves into her role. My favorite plays by Maya are Little Women and Helen Keller. She did really well in Little Women, and it amazed me that she could still perform even though she had a terrible fever. As for Helen Keller, I think she did a wonderful job playing Helen - and an even better version than Ayumi.
Uh, but there is this part which always makes me laugh. I think it's in the first few episodes...Masumi will appear before her and suddenly this cheesy, romantic background music starts playing.

Glass Mask! I'm so hooked to this series. Seriously, between the crazy Tsukikage, two-faced but adorable Hayami, Sakurakouji's name (It's fun to say), The perfectly serious Ayumi who's so hardcore she considers mum a rival, and just Maya, Maya, Maya I love watching it - especially when people try to screw Maya over and they just get it thrown back into their face.

I also like poking fun at the series - I mean with when everyone and their mum seems to enjoy hitting Maya, Tsukikage random evil laugh moments, and Maya's detication to Purple Rose Fan that she doesn't seem to think some of his actions are, ahem, CREEPY (Come alone to my lodge, little girl... let me pay for your schooling kekeke...) how can you not? xD

Speaking of that last bit - I'm only on episode 22, and I hope Maya doesn't stay dim about PRF the entire series.I mean, she has to sometime think, "Hm, why is it he's doing ALL this for me? How does he KNOW when I have a problem or wanna see a play?"(Then again, I don't think HE knows why he's doing it, but that's not the point!)

SO far, I love the scenario when Maya has to do the play by herself and Helen Keller :3 She's really dedicated~

I hope the first sub group will get back on schedule one day and continue subbing -- I could read their subtitles the best, and it seems like they did it on a timely fashion before this hiatus. I don't wanna skip to episodes 31 'cause I don't wanna miss out, so I'll probably finish the old version first - I had started watching old and new together, but for every 1 episode of the old it takes like 3 episodes of the new one to play out the scenario! Oh well... ^^;

Make it Naked!
