I have read this story twice now. The author-celebrity uses the familiar celebrity-school girl trope all too commonly used in shojou, but gives it a fresh twist by setting her narrative in the rarefied world of Kabuki theater. It's a wonderful way to introduce a new audience to an traditional, elaborate art form that few  young people know about-- even in Japan.

Some might take issue with the ML. Basically,he is rude. He is highly introverted,imperious, demanding, and has no social skills. Basically, he is a tsundere. He's also very sensitive and adores his girlfriend. Actually, he needs her. Why? She's just an ordinary girl. She isn't rich, famous, or talented like the ML. She doesn't look like a model either.You'll have to read the Manga to find out why.

In addition to this, both have to deal with a disapproving parent and paparazzi.

There's also a really cute cat! 

P.S. If you wish to learn more about Kabuki, I recommend the anime series Kabukibu.
