Anonymous asked::D YOU ARE A SKIP BEAT FAN!!! AHHHH!!! Doesn't seem to be that many of us :( Who do you want Kyoko to end up with?! :D
OF COURSE I’M A SKIP BEAT FAN! SKIP BEAT IS LOVE, SKIP BEAT IS LIFE, SKIP BEAT SHOULD BE AWARDED AS THE BEST MANGA TO HAVE EVER BEEN CREATED. （*/∇＼*）
Man, skip beat is so freaking underrated because the first thing people judge it by is the fact that the drawing style is not as good as other manga, and secondly they overlook it as some sort of cliché shoujo manga where boy looks at girl, he loves her, girl looks at him back, she loves him, they get married and have seven children; the end.
Like seriously if people just realise how incredible the plot line is, and how the characters are all realistic and how there is 12345% EXCELLENT character development, and how there’s no cliché plot themes and how Kyouko is the PERFECT role model for girls all over the world, they wouldn’t have skipped it to read another manga.
I’m seriously not trying to bash other manga, but people have been constantly looking at other shoujo mangas with less impressive heroines and say, “wow she’s the first heroine I’ve seen that is different from those cliché shoujo manga protagonists” and here I am banging my head on the table because skip beat has been going on for 12 years and Kyouko should be dubbed as queen protagonist.
What more do you want from a woman than to realise that her ‘true love’ turns out not to be her true love and that he’s treating her like shit and goes on to get full revenge from him by outdoing him in the area he’s proud of and going on to discover her self-worth, passions and good friends, and other loves, while still promising to make her ‘ex’ pay for what he did to her, but not making it a priority in life.
Literally Kyouko breaks all the cliché characterisations of manga girls by being an awesome person who can cook and clean, and is pretty girly, but can also go from ‘cute, fragile, fairy-princess’ to ‘badass, evil step-sister, touch-me-and-you’ll-regret-ever-being-born’ and from kind mother who cries a lot to badass and mean and super evil when she needs to be. Even though this is a shoujo manga, and even though there’s romance, her life is not centred around the guy she likes any more. She still makes mistakes, but she’s always learning. She never ever ever gives up, even when life pushes her to the ground and kicks her in the stomach. She’s literally what I aspire to be like, even though we’re the same age. XD
Let’s not even talk about the plot okay, excellent plot and excellent characterisations and excellent development, and I’m so so so very sad to see skip beat having such a small fandom.
