“Skip Beat” has now became my favorite anime at the moment and it’s a torture that I have to wait for a new episode each week. Sometimes I have the feeling of just reading the manga instead because I want to know what will happen afterward but on the other side I enjoy watching animes more than reading mangas. Anyways, I’m already downloading the manga so I’ll be reading it whenever I do feel like it.
So the plot of this anime is about a girl name Kyoko who was dumped and used by a super star, Shotaro. To seek revenge Kyoko has changed her look and entered the entertainment business as an actress. She soon discover that she enjoys acting more than getting revenge at Shotaro.
So far 20 episodes has been released, each episode is so good! I love Kyoko’s character so much, her devil aura just makes me laugh all the time. I like how Kyoko’s expression can change so quick, like for a second she’s all happy and nice and the next second she have this devil look on her.
Another character in this anime is Tsugura Ren, a famous actor. Ren and Kyoko are in the same company so they get to see each other often. At first Ren has a grudge on her because of the fact that she wants to get revenge by being an actress. But as the story goes on Ren discover that she likes acting and not because of revenge. I think by now Ren has develop a special feeling for Kyoko just that he hasn’t realise it and I think the only person who notice that was Ren’s manager. It also seem like Kyoko and Ren have meet when they were a child, “corn” who Kyoko refers to could be Ren.

“Skip Beat” has a good storyline and also a sense of humor, I can’t wait for more of the anime and I’m looking forward to see the development of Ren and Kyoko. Also it seem like Sho has a different feeling of Kyoko after their cooperation in Sho’s music video in episode 20. Sho probably wants to get Kyoko back as in episode 20 she seem jealous when Kyoko was talking to Ren on the phone where he just snatched the phone off her.
