My Thoughts


Review covers 14 chapters 

This story is from the time I reread The One for the third time and started reading everything I could find on Modelling. Unfortunately, this story was neglected by mangafox with only 7 chapters uploaded, and there are only 14 chapters, so now you're thinking how the hell do I even write this review? Well, I surfed the net and found the ending on one of the blogs, where the ending was discussed. It kind of left me shattered because I truly wanted for Yui to find her happiness.

Okay, let's talk briefly about our main character: Shinsato Yui. She's number 1 model, and if you ask me, she was really neglected by everyone, and by everyone I mean her mom, who was one cold-hearted bitch and her so-called boyfriend. She gave it her all to succeed, but her mom just never looked at her, which really infuriated me, because she was only looking at the newcomer Aki. It was absolutely unfair to her daughter. I understand that Aki might have had that something, but to put her on the same stand as Yui was too obnoxious.

The story shows a lot of "reality" if we can say that. Especially, in regards to Yui. even the erson who she thought would always be on her side, confessed his love to Aki. What Aki replied is another story, but his attitude was too rotten. Overall, you'll love the story, if you want a dose of reality and some kickass drawing style! Enjoy it to your fullest and don't forget to share your thoughts below! Stay tuned for more reviews as well as promos. Don't miss your next favourite book or manga! Happy Reading!
