Miyamae Haruka, 22, is a soon-to-be graduate and at first glance a very unremarkable looking young woman. No one will even stop to help her up when she falls and each time she applies for a job, she's blithely passed over. Things are getting desperate and if Haruka cannot get a job soon, she may become known as a jobless university graduate -- a very unenviable title for any young graduate to bear. Haruka decides to lower her expectations. She goes to apply for a job she found on an ad and is shocked by how flippant the interview is. Little does she know, the job she really wanted is already taken and she is now interviewing for a spot as the newest idol... who is supposed to be 17 years old!
Bizarrely low ratings for my absolute favorite manga. Haruka's journey through the world of modelling is simply wonderful. The characters are all belieavable (Which means no one makes the dumbest decisions in history just for the sake of drama), there's no unnecessary drama caused by ridiculous misunderstandings like in any mediocre drama manga, and none of the predicaments drag on for longer than necessary. There's a good balance between success, failure, and whether Haruka fails or succeeds, you know that you still want to keep rooting for her. It made me smile, it made me cry, it made me sad, it made me happy, it hyped up more than any other manga and even when I knew what was happening, the scenes still got me. It's a very powerful read for sure.
