Though hesitant at first, Keito decides to enter El Liston and subsequently, she begins a new stage in her life. With the help of her only remaining childhood friend, Taiyou, and her new classmates Rei, Momiji, and Kouichi, Keito slowly finds the courage to open up to others and to accept their support. Will Keito return to acting? Will she find true friends? Love?
I have always read manga and have read too many of the shoujo kind but this one is one of my list of favorites which is not too many…. not too manga have a lasting effect that will leave something in your memory but this one is… I love her transition being in dark then going to the light and it’s really somewhat close to reality which not most shoujo type is not…. the growth of the characters, the art, the characters it self are lovable… specially Kouichi… ooohh how i love him!!! i like mysterious guys like him though i think that it’s a bit lacking on the romance side where even for the first chapters I’ve been rooting for them!!! well I recommend it to all!!! it’s a great read!!
I’m sorry guys… Hana Yori Dango was too dragged out and encumbered and absolutely unrealistic. Countless characters were introduced, very few of which played a lasting role to the story. It was too episodic at times with a thin overarching story. After a few of these episodes, you could already tell which way the ending was headed.
Cat Street was quite the opposite and on top of that, conveyed a great message. There are a lot of people who have lost their path in life; if only a school like El Liston could exist to bring them back on track.
On top of that, I did not expect that twist. Really, I figured it would be like any other sort of generic shoujo, where you could tell who the final couple would be, just drearily waiting till they finally get together. I’m very thankful it’s not like that, and that is one of the prime reasons I give this a 10.
kare kano(Kareshi Kanojo no Jijou) includes extras
Yukino Miyazawa is the perfect model student. Pretty, kind, good at sports, always at the top of her class. But she’s not all that she seems. It’s all an act of deception; she is really the self-confessed ‘queen of vanity,’ and her only goal in life is winning the praise and admiration of everyone around her.
When she enters high school, she finally meets her match: Soichiro Arima, a handsome, athletic, popular, and very intelligent young boy. Ever since he stole the top seat in the class from her, Yukino has hated him, and has been plotting on how to take back her former place as the object of all other students’ admiration.
What she wasn’t expecting, however, was that Soichiro, the very boy she hated, would confess his love for her. Or that he would find out about her deception – and use it to blackmail her!
Together, they discover that they have more in common than they knew, and they slowly begin to bring out each other’s inner selves.
