Series: Skip Beat!
Animation Studio: Hal Film MakerOriginal Run: 25 Episodes
English Licensor: N/A
Adaptation of: Yoshiki Nakamura's manga "Skip Beat!"
As the series goes on Ren begins to develop feelings for Kyoko, but Kyoko remains oblivious due to her lack of "love". But every now and then, Kyoko shows signs that she also has some feelings for the Casanova, but always somehow reverts back to her twisted mind-set. But she isn't the only one with a painful past, as Ren also holds some dark and unpleasant memories. Despite Kyoko being incapable of love, she still holds a loving and cherished memory of her childhood; "Corn". No, not corn as in "corn on the cob", but her treasure, a stone she named after the fairy prince that gave it to her when she was crying one day. Yes, she still has some fluff left, as she loves fairy tales and yes, she believes in fairies. Of course, Corn wasn't really a fairy but a boy, and his name wasn't really Corn (Kyoko just couldn't pronounce his name properly when she was little so the habit carried on). The stone is like a good luck charm to her that helps her calm down and takes her worries away. Yet unknowing to her, Corn is actually Ren who also treasures that memory. But he refrains from telling her as he thinks she is better off not knowing and leaves her to her fantasies of what became of this "fairy prince".
A.I.'s Rating: 8/10
Overall, the series is okay. It's not as funny as Ouran but it is just as creative and original. I think the most memorable thing with this series is Kyoko's unpredictable acting. Really, she does some pretty ingenious things, that even impresses Ren and those around her. The romance aspect is iffy as, again, not much is developed as the series ends mid-story. But there are moments, so it isn't like this series was sucked completely dry of romance. So, if you're interested in a series that talks about entertainment, check "Skip Beat!" !
