Skip Beat: The Perfect Balance

Currently finished: Episode 22

I said in my last post about Skip Beat that it is a blend of many things. Now I would like to add that it is almost the perfect blend of everything it has.

From very serious drama to falling on the floor laughing comedy, Skip Beat managed to keep the perfect balance between them. Another recent anime that I can think of having such a big contrast in mood is Clannad series. However, compare to Skip Beat, Clannad swings a bit too extreme to both end of the spectrum, where as Skip Beat only try to swing within the distance of what feels natural. This, in my opinion is the nearly perfect (if not the perfect) comedy-drama.
