Skip Beat!

I think I haven't done any post for Anime for a long time. Maybe I enjoy watching too much lately forget to include in my blog. Anyway, there are a lot of good and bad anime this year. Mostly, I myself prefer mecha and science fiction like stories a lot. I do like anime drama too, but it's not many and is too much children’s like. Not to mention, it's not meant for kids to watch nowadays which a bit more erogo and sexual content have included in the scene. I personally don't find it great to watch anymore. Good stories and comedy is what I want in Drama.


I remember two of the best dramas I favor two years ago are Welcome to the NHK! and Ghost Hunt. Both of them are really good and the stories are well written. And now this year, I finally found another one, the Skip Beat! The anime is off based from the popular manga book and started airing on October this year. There will be 25 Episode according to the information.



About Skip Beat! (From Wikipedia)

Skip-Beat! Is about Kyoko Mogami who loves her childhood friend, Shotaro, but is cruelly betrayed and thus seeks revenge against him. She used to spend a lot of time at Shotaro's parents' inn and learned a lot about housekeeping, hostelry, and other feminine jobs (sewing, cooking, serving tea traditionally, etc.).

Shotaro, not wishing to take over his parents' inn, becomes bored of living in Kyoto and decides to move to Tokyo to pursue a career in music. Kyoko lives an unreasonably frugal life, spending nothing on herself and doing whatever she can for Sho, who is ranked seventh in the top twenty most popular entertainers of Japan. It appears that Shotaro never helps with the cost of food, apartment, or necessary products.

However, one day as she brings him his lunch at a company building, she overhears Sho complaining about her to his manager, saying that she is a boring and plain girl that he'd like to be rid of, proceeding to sweet-talk and flirt with his manager, whereas he hadn't even put his arm around Kyoko in her life. Unlike other heroines in the same situation, Kyoko doesn't shed many tears when she learns that Sho thinks she's only good for housekeeping. Instead, her "Pandora's box" opens and she vows vengeance on Shotaro. Enraged, Kyoko attempts to attack Sho, but is instantly carried off by security. And so Kyoko, vowing revenge, changed her appearance and started to enter the entertainment business. Little did she know that her journey will not go as smooth as she thought. Skip Beat follows Kyoko's journey to climb the showbiz ladder as she meets interesting people along the way, all in the hopes of revenge and finding herself in the end.
