I was kind of confused at some parts, but it gets better and better as you proceed! :)

Love it!

Skip Beat is different than other shojo manga in that the main character is tough, smart, and empowering!! Kyoko has this energy that'll satisfy your expectations; she's not one of those typical 'stupid' and annoying shojo girls. And the story is hilarious and touching all together. There's friendship and romance elements, too. Watch the anime as well! ^^

Skip Beat! = Hilarious

This is a hilarious graphic novel by Yoshiki Nakamura. Kyoko follows her chilhood friend Shotaro Fuwa (AKA Sho Fuwa to his fans) to Tokyo to help him become a star. Kyoko devotes her life to Sho, doing everything for him and nothing for herself. She dropped out of high school and ran away and worked all day so she could rent an expensive apartment. I hope I didn't spoil it :)
It's really awesome, and you should read it!

Skip Beat!

Its a humorous graphic novel on a girl (Kyoko Mogami) who follows her childhood friend Sho Fuwa to Tokyo to help him become a star in showbiz. But as soon as Sho becomes famous he ignores Kyoko so she decides to get revenge by beating him in showbiz! Its really a funny (and long) series.
