Kyoko moves from manga to anime. Was the transition successful?
Genres: comedy, romance
Plot Summary: Kyoko has devoted her life to Shotaro. When Shotaro came to Tokyo to debut as a singer, she followed him and worked to provide for him. But one day, Kyoko overhears Shota telling his manager that Kyoko means nothing to him. She’s just convenient, a housekeeper. This makes Kyoko furious, and she vows revenge on Shotaro. But Shotaro just laughs at her, saying she won’t be able to touch him because he’s now a popular singer and she’s a nobody. So Kyoko decides to get into showbiz and become even more popular than Shotaro to humiliate him. Unfortunately, Shotaro has destroyed Kyoko’s ability to love, and she discovers that it is a prerequisite for her to debut from her chosen company, LME. The president of LME puts her into a new section made for those who caught his eye but have something missing. It’s name… Section Love Me. (ANN)
Kyoko’s Got The Look! (Roxette)
I have not read the manga, but found the first episode quite entertaining, especially due to Kyoko’s expressions 😛 I liked Kyoko’s voice actor, Marina INOUE, who also voiced Chiri-chan from Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei 🙂
While the anime looked like a comedy from the beginning, it seems like a drama at the core. Kyoko loves Shotaro, but he treats her horribly. I really hate the guy! Fortunately, Kyoko discovers true feeling of Shotaro by overhearing the conversation. I wish she didn’t miss with that package of food lol Guards take her away, and she can’t do anything to Shotaro.
However, moments of despair can serve as a source of personal growth. She changes herself completely: she cuts and dyes her hair and opens her eyes with new enthusiasm, ready to climb to the summit. I contemplate if I should blog about this anime…
