  2. A couple of years back I read a Josei Manga based on the fashion industry and abusive Male Female relationships, Hot Gimmick, which ended disappointingly for me It was a very readable, challenging series, but I was troubled by the heroine s ultimate willingness to allow herself to be dominated by the man who had abused her and her acceptance that society perhaps, in some small sense, ought to be that way.After a couple of volumes of Paradise Kiss, I was concerned that this would be a repeat perf [...]


  3. This is most certainly not a new manga for me, in fact, I read this like 4 or 5 years ago and it inspired me like no other book or manga have done Since it s compose for five tomes I m just going to do a review about the hole series in general, but without spoilers,so don t worry.It all starts with the view of a young lady in the middle of a few persons waiting to cross the street, but somehow she seems really unhappy and well, bother with the whole world Her name is Yukari aka Caroline and she [...]


  4. PARADISE KISS n 1Finalmente ho tra le mani il seguito di cortili del cuore , che era finito facendoci intravedere un triangolo amoroso tra Miwako, sorella di Mikako, protagonista di cortili , Harashi figlio dell amica di Mikako, e Hiroyuki figlio del barista sempre amico di Mikako e Tsuotmu Paradise kiss si colloca 10 anni dopo , ma la protagonista Yukari, una ragazza di un altro liceo che stata reclutata da Miwako co per la sfilata scolastica dove loro aiutano il loro amico compagno stilista Jo [...]


  5. Cute start to a series I like that character dynamics Ai Yazawa has that skill down nicely The story focus on a girl named Yukari who is a hardworking student who tries hard to please her parents She meets some students of a nearby art school and they ask her to model their clothing the create She then starts to question her own views of reality as these 4 new friends show her concepts of life she never thought of before My only complaint is how the characters keep referencing to themselves as c [...]


  6. Ai Yazawa tiene algo con sus historias, no entiendo qu es, pero cuando las empiezo a leer no puedo parar ste no es un argumento que normalmente me interesar a, pero por alguna raz n estoy completamente enganchada y ya me encari con todos los personajes excepto con George, view spoiler esa relaci n es un desastre esperando para explotar hide spoiler Adem s me encanta el humor y el estilo de dibujo, igual que me pas con Nana.L stima que son pocos tomos, me va a durar poco.


  7. This is only my second manga, so I don t have much to compare it to but I liked it I thought it was funny Nevertheless, I m not positive I ll borrow the next one Still, it was entertaining



  8. I read this manga in a few hours and I regret nothing I heard about ParaKiss many years ago but even if the plot was kind of appealing to me, I never had the real intention to make some time and read it However, this last summer I got interested about Nana and that s how I decided to give it to this other Yazawa s work a try again.Even though is a bit of the typical My family force me to be like this but I find an unconventional interest that makes me happy even if they would hate me for that p [...]


  9. I read this one for the first time four years ago and fell completely and utterly in love with the series The characters are fantastic They are all so colourful and interesting, not to mention talented George is just AWESOME I actually don t know what words to use in order to describe him He is just so unpredictable, but at the same time you can t help but love that about him After reading this again, I am totally in love with him all over again Aside from George and his epicness, I don t think [...]


  10. A lot of people I know like Ai Yazawa s Nana series and it is her most popular series While I did like the movie I wasn t that big of a fan of the manga However, her Paradise Kiss manga is fantastic It doesn t have your typical ending and it involves some really interesting fashion Not to mention that George is one of the most fantastic characters in manga I ve read You don t know whether you want to kill him or kiss him.


  11. This book surprised me I thought it was going to be a cliche manga, but there s nothing cliche about it The story at the beginning was okay, but after a few pages, things intensified and then I was surprised, everything turned out not as I expected, the characters are charming, though the clothes aren t my cup of tea, I loved it Seriously, I want to get the rest of the series.


  12. I did read the whole series I thought the main character was pretty much a schmuck but it ended kinda interestingly Also, the artwork is really neat.


  13. Overall Rating A Summary A fashion drama romance Josei series created by Ai Yazawa who is also the creator of Nana , which follows Yukari Caroline Hayasaka Yukari is an attractive high schooler, but her life consists of traveling from high school to cram school to home, and back again The manga opens with Yukari running into Arashi a punk and Isabella a transvestite , who are part of a group of fashion students that call their label Paradise Kiss Yukari thinks they are perverts did I mention she [...]


  14. Okay The part of me that still likes to watch America s Next Top Model every season was for obvious reasons drawn to a series about a reluctant model Yukari and the crew of fashion forward design students that help Yukari discover her passion for the industry And there was a lot I liked about this series, including the artwork by Yazawa But the romance that develops between Yukari and George, the leader of the group of fashion students she starts hanging around with, made me uncomfortable At tim [...]


  15. This is an excellent series Too many shojo manga suggest that you re going to go to high school, find the man you ll be with forever, and that ll be it it was refreshing to find one that shows a relationship that is finite, but still also lasting.


  16. Actual rating 3.5 out of 5 starsI am conflicted I watched the anime adaptation of Paradise Kiss almost two years ago, and while I did love the art and the style of the story, the main couple frustrated me all to heck It s one of those condescending mind games of a relationship where the guy drags the girl around on a leash, and although she s sick of it, she can t get enough Along with that, there was some terminology in this book that felt outdated calling a picnic gay, for example freak was al [...]



  17. this is one of my favorite mangas yukari was such a relatable character for me and she was very refreshing among the typical sugary shojo schoolgirls i was used to read about yukari is really smart and she feels like a real person and not a stereotype in fact, all of the character feel that way despite fitting into some miwako is one of the cutest characters ever george is really weird and twisted and i can never figure him out, but i guess thats the way he supposed to be but he s very charismat [...]


  18. August 9, 2014I decided to reread this series again I m not sure why Okay, just kidding I totally know why I read this article Paradise Kiss and the Art of Self Deprecation and wanted to revisit Yukari s relationship with George Not much has changed in the three years since I first read this, but I d like to analyze their relationship with a clearer head and without being so emotionally attached to the characters.I m still entranced by Yazawa s cute and quirky art style I m still in love with th [...]


  19. Los chicos que se nieguen a leer ste manga con el prejuicio de que es Sh jo manga para chicas les aseguro que se pierden de algo bueno y diferente a lo que estamos acostumbrados a leer, porque es un manga hilarante y ameno recomendable para todo p blico, tanto femenino como masculino.Introducirse en el mundo de Paradise Kiss es un deleite para la visual y lo emocional, sin querer sonar cursi La historia te mantiene con la intriga hasta el final, con una trama simple pero muy entretenida e ir nic [...]


  20. When I researched this manga, I heard that it s about fashion and modelling and such It didn t sound like something I d be too interested in, but being new to manga anyways, I thought I d give it a try And whoa I am so glad I did.Paradise Kiss is about a girl named Yukari Hayasaka She s very studious and spends mostly all her time studying for college One day, she is spotted on the street by the members of Paradise Kiss, a group of designers from a local arts high school She is taken to their st [...]


  21. Je ne sais pas pourquoi j ai pris ce manga parmi tant d autres dans les rayonnages Au d but, je ne voulais pas le lire la couverture rose et le titre ne me disaient rien Rien que j aurais aim Bah, oui, faut dire que je ne suis pas du tout fan, mais alors l pas du tout du tout, ni du rose ni du paradis Mais j ai quand m me quand m me entam la lecture, sans vraiment savoir pourquoi Oui, je suis bizarre, c est rien de nouveau Bref, revenons au manga D Je pense, non je suis sure m me, que si je ne l [...]


  22. After reading so much shoujo mangas I actually find this one series appeal to me the most Not only because I really liked fashion, but the bittersweet love really got into me The male lead character George was a very complex and interesting character so was the female lead Yukari Don t expect the ordinarily popular handsome smart perfect pretty boy like in other mangas, George was different He had his ambition, dream career, even his negative and dark sides when it comes to love.The story itself [...]


  23. It is an interesting manga, although I was expecting of the world of fashion, which I guess it will be in the following chapters Yukari is funny and kinda clumsy character, but she forgets too soon her true love and falls rather quickly for George The guys at the studio the rocker, the loli, the drag and George were OK I think I liked the drag better as we do not get much about her.Miwako looks so much like a little girl of 14 years old it looks disturbing to read that she and the Arashi are lo [...]


  24. I have finished reading this manga back then Well truthfully it s really annoyed me when Yukari refuse to attend school at the beginning of the story You need to finish your education instead of skipping almost deciding to drop Depending on your beauty alone is a big no no There s a part in it she talked as if she had seen lots about life Well she deserves her mother s slap for that But, as the story goes by she begins to mature realise what she should do don t Which is a good thing A good part [...]


  25. Paradise Kiss Volume 1 ReviewManga Rating 5 stars out of 5Story Line 5 stars out of 5 I read the manga because I watched the anime I wanted to see how close the anime came to the manga This volume represented episodes 1 3 Characters 5 stars out of 5 I loved each and every character that was written for this manga Yukari, the narrator, she had a dull life The only thing she did was study for college entrance exams She finally opens her shell when she meets the people from Parakiss A lot of things [...]


  26. Admittedly, I watched the anime before reading the manga As someone who is not very much into anime romance OR fashion, I wasn t expecting to like this series as much as I did What first intrigued me was the art style, so I thought, eh, I ll give it a go I was enthralled from the start What I really loved was the atypical nature of this romance manga From my experience, most romance manga are very cute, flowery, and girly Not the case with Paradise Kiss This one gave off a gritty and erotic feel [...]


  27. the movie adaption of this one chose a happy ending i prefer the manga ending that s life, and we cannot always have what we want besides, with the manga ending, we know for sure how much George and Yukari s feelings and love for each other if not thinking about the other one s future, they would not choose to sacrafice their love they chose to live longer, they must lose sth precious in exchange and we, readers, should think carefully of our choice and chance in life nothing costs for free.


  28. I fell in love with the series asap Especially since I read it as a teen in puberty and rebellion XD so I totally felt Caroline s feelings My family is a bit peculiar, but quite like Caroline s My sis was like Caroline x the creative lot, slightly out of the household, while I was like her brother with Caroline s frustrations We too are as close as Caroline and her brother.It is also the first manga that I felt so near to reality yet too bizarre to be real I still love the series, only hate for [...]
