If you liked the Skip Beat! manga, the Anime-Planet community thinks you'd like:
When Fujimaru's father's business fails he runs away once more and leaves Fujimara on her own to sleep in the park. However, Fujimaru's luck changes when she saves the beautiful vice president of the student council from a guy, only to find out that the vice president is male and cross-dressing as a girl. Ryou works for Peacock, a showbiz company, and it's company policy for their actors to disguise themselves for everyday life. Ryou offers Fujimaru a job as his manager because he needs help getting work, and thus Fujimaru must disguise herself as a boy from henceforth. Can Fujimaru fulfill her obligations, defend Ryou, and keep their secrets safe at the same time?
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)
Yuu Sasaya is a naïve, unfashionable girl from a small town and is living in Tokyo for college. She becomes fascinated by the theater after watching a play for the first time and declares that she will become an actor. Yuu manages to join a small theater troupe, but due to her lack of skills and experience she is only allowed to handle odd jobs. Her first chance to perform comes when she is given a small guest part in a play with another troupe. However, when Yuu makes a critical mistake, she is forced to face the harsh reality that even with determination she cannot become an actor without talent. She considers abandoning her theatrical dreams, but with some encouragement, she decides to change her goals and become a writer and director. Yuu must now find her own unique voice and showcase it for everyone to see while overcoming the many difficulties that lay ahead.
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.
Skip Beat! and B.B. Explosion both follow the lives of regular girls who have crushes on idols and decide to enter show business themselves. In both series, the heroine is unaware of her innate talent, but begins to shine in her own right after a bit of practice.
Manabe is a former model who has withdrawn completely from the spotlight. She prefers to sit in the corner of the classroom, ignoring her classmates, while keeping her face hidden by her hair. However, Manabe's quiet life is disrupted when she accidentally meets her teacher while he's taking pictures. When he points his camera in her direction, her attitude changes and she automatically poses just like a model would pose. With Manabe's secret exposed, will she still be able to quietly remain in the shadows?
Again, these two manga share an author giving them a very similar 'feel'. If you enjoyed one, you will definately enjoy the other. Between the characters, the story and the art, liking one and not the other seems impossible to me.
I find these to be similar in strange ways.
See, we have strong (like, literally strong) female leads with dashing and chivalrous men around her, and yet, instead of falling all over them and becoming wrapped up in her own beating heart, she stays strong (sometimes to the point idiotic stubborness) and independent.
If you liked one you'll definitely like the other.
