    "Now this goes off with a bang from the beginning to the end. I thought this was excellent and kept me on edge most of the time. The main character along with many others were very well written and can't wait for the next one."

    "Maid Sama is one of my favorite shoujo manga series because the main character is so strong and realistic. The premise is great, Misaki is a tough overachiever but also works as a maid after school, and the love story is interesting. I think these books have a pretty wide appeal."

    "Out of all the classic shoujo manga out there, I found Skip Beat! (Vol. 1) to be the best classic shoujo manga. This manga is very endearing as it follows the journey of Kyoko into Tokyo. As she journeys into the show business, she learns so much and inspired me in many ways. I believe this is the best classic shoujo manga."

    " I know very little about manga, but it is something I have been curious about for long time. I picked up this book and was pleasantly surprised with how much I enjoyed it. It has all of the classic elements to make up a good story…teenage angst, romance, and vampires of course. If this is what all magna books are like I think I may have found a new hobby for myself. These books read like you are watching them on a screen, but come in good old-fashioned paper you can hold in your hand"
