Film girl

It’s a story about Nakamura Mei, a girl that was a model as a child. She had a trauma where she heard that she doesn’t have any talent so she quit and from then on she tried to be as plain and invisible as she can (I don’t know why she would go to that extreme but ok).

One day Shirou sees her. He’s been her fan ever since he was 12 years old and saw her in a magazine. From that time on, he tried his best to become a model and meet her someday. He shows a lot of funny faces in this manga, I found him pretty entertaining 🙂

 

There are a lot of cliches in this manga, one of them being that Mei wants to do her best and shines for Shirou, and not for herself. I do understand that lack of confidence and a trauma are a big problem, and that his help was something that she really needed, but then doing everything to make someone else happy and proud, is a bit too much.

Still, I like how the relationship between them will grow and be more mutual than in the beginning. I like how they look like on photo shoot together.

Also, I didn’t think it will end how it ended, but for me it was a good ending, where it showed that they grew and they know better what the want to do with their life and career. There are some really funny situations to, so it’s a fast and quiet enjoyable read. It was written by Takagi Shigeyoshi.
