Skip Beat and Penguin Revolution remind me of each other because both of them are about people trying to make it in the entertainment world, if you liked one then you would like the other for sure. The guy in Penguin Revolution reminds me of the main in Skip Beat and they also both work in companies surronded in mystery. The comedy in Skip Beat is more often but every once in a while Penguin Revolution will give you a good laugh.  Both of them are very good and draw you in and the atmosphere is the same.  For some reason it is hard to find all of the Penguin Revolution Chapters online but I know Citymanga has most of them and all other sites have the last Chapters.

Though the plot might be slightly different the stories take place in the same kind of world, the entertainment world. Both have their share of romance and a lot of different characters with different personalities come by. (The two male main character look a lot alike too, black haired and blonde though their personalities are nothing alike)

Both series are about a girl trying to make it in show biz to get back at someone. She finds her own identity through enjoying the art of acting. There are also plenty of cute boys who cause her many distractions, but she continues to try and get her revenge through an acting career.

Skip Beat and Ashita no Ousama both have to do with actors, acting, and the stage.  While Skip Beat focuses on an actresses journey to stardom, Ashita no Ousama focuses on a scriptwriter and director's path to greatness.  They both have romantic elements, Skip Beat with its triangle, and Ashita no Ousama with its octagon, or something resembling a star.  I seriously reccomend Ashita no Ousama to anyone who liked Skip Beat or vice versa.

Othello

Othello

Yaya is a shy girl who is regularly bullied; even her so-called friends find her torment a source of entertainment. Things change when a girl named Nana appears and hands out some ‘Heavenly Punishment' in retribution for the wrongdoings against Yaya, but there's a catch: Nana and Yaya are actually the same person, but Yaya has no knowledge of Nana's existence! With her alter ego on a quest for justice and a hefty memory loss problem due to Nana's episodes, Yaya's life is suddenly far more complicated. However, Yaya's life isn't all bad. She has a crush on a boy named Moriyama, a person who shares her passion with music and is the only person to treat her kindly. Can Yaya sort out her feelings for Moriyama and overcome her timidity? If so, she may have a shot at growing past her alter ego and obtaining both her love and her dream.

Both mangas feature a strong, optimistic female character, that's  really unexperienced in matters of love. Both heroines give it all they've got to achieve their goals (getting boyfriend in High school debut, and becoming Idol in Skip Beat). Their simple minded logic, and lack of experience often brings suprising results.
