  • I wish it was longer!
    This manga has been on since 1976, so you would think that they would have made more episodes. I love anime about acting. Acting always fascinates me. The way they portray the entertainment business and what sort of things that happen with it astounds me. I love it! My only problems is

  • Entertaining for an acting anime
    This story is about Maya Kitajima who recently takes up acting and enjoys the endless possabilities. I give this a good review because it has a lot of replay value and the violence, depression, and joy that comes in one package of 51 episodes is worth it.

    Replay Value: 8/10
    Interest Value: 6/10
    Ending Value: 7/10

    Overall 7/10

  • enchanting draws you in
    I loved this series, it was beautifully done. I would have liked a little more relationship completion though. I felt the way they delved into the different mind set of each actor and how they developed and grew was wonderful. Fighting hard ships and feeling the excitement of success it was a roller coaster of emotions.

  • Stunning. What is means to be an Artist.
    This is a story that is moving, inspirational, pretty realistic. Relationships grow with time, misunderstandings are discovered and alleviated. This is a story about what it might mean to be an artist: fear and anxiety serve as detriments but also catalysts for an artist to push forth toward the never ending challenges and chances at the new project. As an artist myself, you do this because of ...

  • Drama, Drama, Drama!
    I am NOT a big fan of drama, yet this somehow pulled me in and I watched all fifty one episodes of it. The anime is similar to skip beat, and I still prefer skip beat, but this was really good.
    It revolves around a girl whose, even though she doesn't truly know it in the beginning, world revolves around acting. She lives a pretty hard knock life, trying to make it work with her old and frail ...

    Simply Innocent & Meaningful.
    This Anime has to be 1 of my favorites! >.< It's kinda rare nowadays when you find such an innocent & meaningful Anime. One of the things that I absolutely adore in this Anime is the way they tell you to "Never give up." And to "Chase Your Dreams." As cliche as it sounds they really do want you to know that through this beautifully composed Anime. ^O^ The way they show how passionate Maya is for ...

  • To describe it in one word..."Sugoi!!!"
    Ok, sure this may be more of a girl anime and I'm a guy, but I'm considered a bit of an Otomen. This was a great anime, and I loved the story a lot. It's the norm to choose a side between two rivals, but in this case, I wasn't able to choose... I loved them both!!! Maya was adorable, and so full of passion and talent. I was clearly taken with her because of how humble she was and I also found ...

  • Anime that will leave you in awe!
    Honestly I have to say this is a great anime but none of this would be possible without the voice acting. This is an anime about acting so it only makes sense. The characters have to change their tone of voice in a heartbeat because they are actors. They do this very well especially the 2 main characters. All in all, it is has a slow pick up but after I think episode 5 you will be hooked the whole ...

  • I never thought I would like this show this much!
    I feel like I shared these girls' lives and didn't just watch their story in a show. There is a lot of emphasis on the art of acting and the fact that details count and it brought me back to my days on stage and made me hungry again! The romantic side was so good and so painful in ways and I really wanted more. I feel like there needs to be another season... I have ended up checking out the manga ...

    Absolutely Enthralling! - Also Found Synopses of the Series Past Ep. 51
    For a while I skipped over this series because I thought it wouldn't interest me (crunchyroll you need to work on your descriptions); boy was I ever wrong! I ended up watching this series in the course of a few days onces I got my hands on it. Some have mentioned that Skip Beat! has similar elements, I would assume they were drawn from this masterpiece since it predates it, and yes if you love ...
