"One should either be a work of art, or wear a work of art." - Oscar Wilde. The school fashion show is finally here, and it's a last-minute fight to the finish to get the awesome ensemble ready on time. The drama escalates when a stressed-out Yukari literally passes out from exhaustion in George's car. No one knows if she'll recover in time to model for the show. Meanwhile, a mysterious female friend from George's past shows up to support him on the big day. Are they just friends...or something more? Yukari's not sure who she can trust. All she's 100 per cent sure about is that she wants the Paradise Kiss posse to take first place at the fashion show, no matter what it takes. Will they reign victorious or be forced to taste the agony of defeat?

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 creat...
This is good stuff. I got a self-insert feeling from it, but the environment she is in is so wonderfully crafted, it don't matter, because you want to be her tooo. Maybe. Unless any kind of entitled whiny Mary Sue vibe pisses you off. Seriously though, if you like Ai Yazawa's other stuff, this is ju...
Paradise Kiss is one of my favorite manga series. It has a great romance and I love Ai Yazawa's artistic style.
