Manga Monday! # 36- Review of Backstage Prince by Kanoko Sakurakouji

Backstage Prince by Kanoko Sakurakouji


Review: An okay read, short, sweet and to the point two volume manga. It’s not at all like Black Bird but the story and art are by the same person. So don’t get your hopes to high up.

2 out of 5 stars.

1-2 Volumes.

Manga. Young Adult. Romance. Acting.

Published by VIZ.

Summary: Drawn into the exciting world of kabuki theatre, young Akari spends her time after school assisting the internationally famous actor, Shonosuke Ichimura. In the real world, however, this prince of kabuki is actually a high school cutie by the name of Ryusei.

Akari is totally clueless about kabuki–and boys–but she’s eager to learn about both. Her first encounter with Ryusei doesn’t go very well, but with the help of a cat named Mr. Ken, the two teenagers quickly become prince AND princesses of kabuki. Love was never so dramatic!
