I found an entry here
for some new ideas of manga(with loli) and even dramas. Right now my goal this month is to see a drama, but then I was hearing people talk about this manga/drama called Cat Street, so I decided to try it.
I think I finished reading the 35 chapters in 3 days!
I absolutely loved the manga, my type of shoujo!
Cat Street is a manga about a girl named Keito, who was a child actress. When she was 9 she was a main role for a musical, but froze on stage, ruining her career and making her a recluse for 7 years.
When she is out one day, she meets a man who shows her El Liston, a free school for people who couldn't attend regular schools because of their schedules or social problems, as you could go whenever you wanted to. She goes on to meet 3 friends and it progresses of their lives and relationships.
First off, the art was pretty nice, I just loved Kouichi because he was so handsome in many panels.
Kouichi is one of Keito's best friends. Not only is he hot, he has an IQ of 200, but has had social problems, letting anyone getting close to him.
The art is pretty simplistic when I compare eyes to other shoujo, but it's still very good. In fact, I had noticed something familiar of the style.
The author, Yoko Kamio, did Hana Yori Dango
As far as story, I think it was a good story. Keito is having to get used to people after staying in her room isolated for all the years, and getting over what happened to her on the stage.
Last is the romance that makes it a shoujo. It has good cases of romances. Right in the beginning there's an old childhood crush- later on another couple, jealously, and two finally confess after a period of almost 3 years being separated, including one or two unrequited cases. And I must say, I really love the person Keito ends up with, and how they got there.
Now, I'm interested in seeing what the drama is like. It's only 6 episodes, and the actors don't look as cute, but it's a goal I want to meet!
