Wow, I can’t believe I forgot to post this.
Jeepers, how long ago did I make this?
Meh, it’s not like anyone was expecting this so I have no pressure ~
Anyone of you 4 readers get snow this week? Any of you drive? ISN’T IT SCARY TO DRIVE IN THE SNOW???
Sorry for the freak out – I just experienced driving in the snow/on ice for the first time in my life. Now I know how all those parents died in shojo manga.
Ice is scary!
#8 continues the Angel Arc that I’m so fond of. I’m happy with the way it concluded though Shou ruined the ending for me. Ugh, what an ass he is. “I still think she’s mine, and I’ve got the right to do whatever I want with her ?” Really, dude? How can you say that after you told her you only thought of her as nothing but a housemaid and pretty much used her? Then to top it all off, you just abandoned her in the flippin big city (this all happens in the first chapter of volume #1 ~) and you STILL think you have the right to say “She’s mine?” >:I
Also, what he does when Kyoko is on the phone just…GAH! The only good thing about you Shou is your face – and it’s not even THAT decent looking >:U
Ahem, #8 moves us to the next arc where we learn more about Momo. The arc continues into volume #9 and I have got to say, #9 is my favorite thus far. I’ve been waiting for this volume ever since I saw pictures of it awhile back (and I mean, AWHILE back *feels old*). Momo was just gold and Kyoko’s reaction to meeting Ren again was priceless. Love Ren’s pissed off smile xD
Also in volume #9, we’re given hints that MAYBE Ren likes Kyoko :O But he’s still in denial.
Ren: “She’s still in high school.”
Ren: SO!?!? :U
I CAN GO TO JAIL FOO!.
Manager: “The risk makes it all the more fun ~”
Ren: ” (ಠ_ಠ) something tells me you’ve been involved in some illegal stuff…maybe that’s how you obtained the power to destroy cell phones with your bear hands…”
Manager: “Tee hee ;D”
#9 continuing to #10 starts the Tsukigomori arc (
hey, I just noticed there’s a typo on the back of my #10 – they spelled the drama’s name wrong :O). It wasn’t as LOL as the previous arc but it did push the story forward. In #10, Kyoko and Ren get cast into a remake of a drama from a while back. The actress who previously played the character Kyoko is assigned makes life hell for the new star. Can she meet this old star’s expectations or will she be forced to quit?
What really ruined this volume for me was the last few pages where, you guessed it, Shou appeared. I can bet you a monkey’s hand ball (whatever that is xD) that he’s going to do something ass-like in the future.
Overall, even though I’m behind, I’m enjoying Skip Beat! I find if you read Skip Beat for the lols rather than the romance, then it’s more enjoyable (because seriously, the romance is S-L-O-W!).
