Thanks for enabling me!

Alrighty for stuff that I read ahead but still happened in vol2:

(spoiler tags just in case, but it’s all pretty vague)

Some of this I relate to a lot, because I am also a sucker for fairytale like stuff. When I get professional makeup and am able to wear fancy clothes I have a similar reaction (though completely internal so I don’t embarrass myself lol). It’s one of the reasons I like Kyoko a lot, besides a bunch of other things of course. :stuck_out_tongue:

I always get a huge kick out of skills from Kyoko’s past with Sho helping her on the road to beating him.

Wait I lied here’s a spoiler that isn’t vague. This cracked me up.

It’s been a while since I’ve last re-read Skip Beat from the beginning but gosh I missed it. Nakamura’s “old” art style cracks me up sometimes (haven’t seen Yashiro with such a sharp chin in a while).

My shoujo heart skips a beat at this scene every time:

…and then I burst out in laughter just the next page because of how Kyoko and Ren treat and mock each other.

I could go on about all the scenes and small details that I love but I will leave it at that for now.

Btw, the Princess Coup d’Etat arc also has a special place in my heart because I started reading from there. (Skip Beat was first published in my country in a monthly magazine like Hana to Yume and the first issue I bought back then in 2003 had chapters of this arc in it.)

I also just finished volume 2 because I want to watch episode 6 of the anime now. :joy: I think I will continue to watch the respective episodes right after finishing chapters of the manga (one anime episode covers about 2 episodes btw, except for the first episode).
