Definitely, most definitely worth reading! I was really looking forward to getting this series, mostly because it was written by Moyoco Anno who wrote Happy Mania, a series by Tokyopop that I am a huge fan of. Moyoco Anno probably has one of the greatest senses of humor since Rumiko Takahashi, though her style of humor is very different from most manga writers. For one thing, what makes her writing so funny is that she doesn't JUST rely on goofy jokes, dumb situations, and puns to make her work humorous. Instead, she uses a lot of real life references and satires, that pretty much make fun of all the ridiculous things people do and that we have to put up with in our lives!
Flowers and Bees in particular is about a guy who has become obsessed with being one of those Japanese pretty boys that all the girls are, in theory, gaga over. Of course, at first he thinks the idea is totally crazy, but with girls telling him his eyebrows are too bushy and that his hair looks like a helmet, he's starting to reconsider. Plus, he becomes infatuated with a girl that he's CERTAIN will fall head over heels with him if he can just show off how trendy and sexy cool he can be.
Anyway, like all good people, at the cost of his wallet and pride, the guy ends up becoming obsessed with the idea. (like a girl that says, "if a little make up looks good on me, then if I cake on five layers of it, I'll look beautiful!) His desire to be the sexiest guy alive, becomes an addiction and the sad thing is, he's just making himself look goofier and goofier the harder he tries.
So, take a poor guy, obsessed with trying to look good. A few girls that love making fun of him trying to look good, and another girl that he practically idolizes every time he sees her walking down the street, and blend in a trio of psychotic male beautitians (god, I need to learn how to spell) and we got ourselves one hell of a funny manga.
Also note that though it was written for older male audiences, it's pretty much got something for everyone. I'm a older teenaged girl and I thought it was great ^_^ So enjoy!
