Paradise Kiss #1

So I had a lot of fun reading this book back when I first got it in 2001. Since then I have read it another half a dozen times and still really enjoy the art work and story! It was the first book of manga I ever bought because the cover drew me in more than anything else in the Barnes and Nobel teen section.

So anyhow on with the review: This manga really pulls you in right off the bat by making Yukari the main character. Alot of people know what it is like to be her a student who feels plain and is just trying to get by…

but then out of nowhere you are thrust into the world of paradise kiss. This world contains beauty and excitement and people who are so different from those of the “regular world”

In the midst of all these crazy people one seems more crazy …and wonderful than all the others: George

Before she even realizes it she is in love with george and things in Yukari’s life start to spiral out of her control…

You will like it if you like: Shoujo, Romance, Fashion, Beautiful artwork, Good Story

    Paradise Kiss!!! I’ve never read the manga, but every bit of the anime was beautiful. I watched the whole series in a day (and watched it all over again)! It’s way up there in my top favorites. I felt a bit depressed after finishing. I wanted more 🙂

    I’m considering reading the manga now…
