HASH(0x9e80390c) out of 5 stars A Little Different Type of Story From Tanemura March 1 2016
By Talvi - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
With this second volume, we get a much better view of the characters, especially Tokita (the scientist). What at first looked like a simple story of a 31 year old reverting to 15, becoming an idol, and eventually finding the courage to go after the guy she liked in high school now has the added dimension of Tokita's connection to her. We get his backstory at the beginning and it is both sad and heartwarming.

Story: the humiliations continue at the office but Deguchi is fortified by her nightlife as a 15 year old idol. But that life is also problematic as she is introduced to a rival who will happily take her out. What it amounts to is a showdown - each girl singing the same song and the one who sells the most CDs will get Hibiki as their music producer. Yuko wants Hibiki for herself and is afraid Deguchi will steal him from under her. Curious about Hibiki herself, Deguchi follows him home and finds out he is caring for a large family of siblings. When she runs into Haru and finds he's broken up with his girlfriend, her thoughts become transparent to Tokita. As he helps her choose a dress for the competition, he has to remind himself that his girlfriend Hina is his current priority.

There are several romances going on - in the past and the present. Tokita/Haru for adult Deguchi and Hibiki/Ryu in the past. It'll be interesting to see where Tanemura takes this - though I have my own suspicions about who Deguchi will end up with at the end. The 'wardrobe malfunction' was cute and the solution was expected of a Tanemura story. Since 31 year old Deguchi is constantly told to stand up for herself, it will be interesting to see her modern life transform as she becomes more confident in her idol work.

This volume also features an interesting interview with Tanemura where she talks about this and other series. Reviewed from an advance reader copy provided by the publisher.
HASH(0x9e803960) out of 5 stars As enjoyable in book two as it was in the first volume April 4 2016

This book starts with Chikage’s friend Tokita remembering how horrible his school days were. (Tokita is the one who provides the age-change drug that allows Chikage to try being a teen idol.) Chikage was one of the few people nice to him, which establishes the foundation for their friendship now. It’s a surprising start for what’s normally a lighter-toned series, and it works well as almost a stand-alone tale of what helps a kid survive bullying. As a flashback, though, it gives the sillier events to follow more depth.

Chikage already has a rival in present-day, adult life. That’s part of what spurred her choice to try youth over again. But now, she gains one as a teen idol, too. Due to contrived circumstances, she’s in a competition with another girl to perform the same song and see whose CD sells better. Her producer encourages her with dance lessons and coaching, but he’s got a secret of his own (just to toss in some family drama).

In addition to some cute kids, a fashion contest is added, as young Chikage will also be judged on her outfit, which requires her to get shopping help from Tokita. This can be a kitchen sink manga, with anything and everything somehow fitting within its pages, but that “anything can happen” approach is part of its charm for me. It’s certainly unpredictable.
