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)
Strong female main character, show biz... pretty much the same surroundings. also I get the same "general feel" when reading both mangas.
Both manga are about aspiring actors who are better at it then they first appear. Both have a nice spice of romance and dash of comady. Despite their simiarities, they are unique enough that each felt like they had their own well develped story line. I really enjoyed both of these manga, and I think if you're a fan of one you will be a fan of the other.
- both are shoujo romances
- both involve girl getting into showbiz and become really god at it(seiyuu ka - voice acting, skip beat - acting)
- both are really funny
- both involve them initially hating the love interest but grow to respect and admire them then grow to love them
- both involve a temporary love triangle (and it's the type that's not annoying because you already know the other guys gonna lose because the female lead's not the indecisive type)
- Seiyuu ka is complete, skip beat is ongoing (monthly updates)
- Seiyuu ka has gender bender (Mc disguises as a boy)
- Skip beat has more drama while seiyuu ka seems to have a lighter theme

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.
