If you like either Skip Beat or Cat Street, you should definitely give the other a try.
Both mangas deal with acting (while CS focuses a lot more on the relationships of the female lead; SB focuses a bit more on professional acting than CS). Both mangas offer in depth relationships between the female lead and their surrounding people. While SB is more comedic and upbeat, CS offers a more emotional side of the story.
Both are diamonds in a dozen so give them a try, you won't be disappointed!
As acting plays an iatrical role in Cat Street and Skip Beat the two series blend in a multitude of ways as the heroines light up the stage trying to reveal their skills and power. The two mangas focus on relationships between the female leads and the other characters who help her along her way.
the main characters in both skip beat and cat street are upcomming popular actress. a group of people support them from behind. They both fall in love unexpectedly with the people close to them and their stories are both interesting. XD
They both deal with the personal and professional journey of young woman with emotional issues. The lead characters are similiar in that they are both naturally gifted actresses with poor social skills and strange personalities. The male leads are also similar in that they come off as uncaring but always seem to be there to help out.

Both are mangas featuring a female lead, who (at first) doesn't know what to do with her life. For one reason or another she starts hanging out with people from very unique high school (or in Cat street case even attend said school ). Thx to that she finally finds her goal in life (or in Cat street case get back to the goal she abandoned long ago) and starts working towards her dream.
Both mangas maintain a nice balance betweenn bittersweet romances and accomplishing-your-dream, inspirational story. Paradise kiss is a bit more dramatic, but overall - if you like one, you should also like the other.
The main heroines in both Cat Street and Paradise Kiss do not really seem to fit in with the world around them. As the story progresses through each of the mangas friends are able to help the two characters try and find the path that they needed to take in life. Through the hard ties of reliving their pasts to the hopefulness of what the future might bring. Startling contrasts are seen with the real world, hiting on everyday issues.
oh my god, when i read Cat street, I think, this is so similar to paradise kiss. The parents that dont know what is hapening, the girl who is so lost and found friends. I loved this manga, and I love Kouichi, i think its similar to tokomori in Paradise kiss, so if you like a manga that its not the tipical story you should read Cat Street or Paradise Kiss
