Skip Beat: Show Biz, Driven by Hate

Currently finished: Episode 4

I'm not interested in show biz, nor the story of someone trying to get into show biz. But, that does not mean I won't enjoy a very well made anime about it.

Skip Beat is a somewhat unique story. I say "somewhat" because there are some similar concepts that had already appeared in other animes, namely Full Moon and Kaleidostar. What does make Skip Beat unique is attitude of the main character. While most other show biz animes focus on "love", Skip Beat had laid its focus on "hate". Though after watching episode 4, I have a feeling that it is going to slowly progress towards "love" as the story goes, for the moment, "hate" is still what drives the story.

New Rating (out of 5): 4 (net gain: +0.25) ~ Unique
