Yeah Yeah, I am a sucker for manga with a cute guy on the cover ^^; At Least I thought this guy was cute, and I liked the little bear hood-thing he is wearing and wanted to know who he was ^^ There is a girl named Rika who works as a cleaning girl at a TV studio. One day she gets into the main star’s dressing room, and is trapped there hiding when the star (yes, it’s Mr. Cutie from the cover, his name is Hikaru) and his manager return unexpectedly. Rika waits quietly, but is of course discovered by Hikaru. Rika tries to leave, but Hikaru decides to go with her, and follows her home!

Rika has the funniest expressions on her face! She is very loud and reacts strongly to things. She just doesn’t go super-deformed, she goes insanely super-deformed ^^ It’s hard to explain 🙂 These two characters make up the first 2 out of 4 stories in this volume. Can Rika and Hikaru have a relationship? He’s famous, and hunted by fans and photographers all the time. In fact, one of them gets what could be an incriminating picture…

The next 2 stories in this volume contain new characters, in stand-alone stories. I am actually not *quite* sure what exactly is going on in these O_o. The first has a girl doing a lot of traveling around Europe, and in her group is this guy. Most of the story is their relationship as they travel. The 4th story in this volume has an interesting beginning- a girl wakes up naked in bed with a guy who tells her ‘thanks for yesterday.” She has no idea how she got there ^^ He asks her if she really can’t remember yesterday. She can’t, so he starts to tell about what happened 🙂 This volume has nice art, and the stories are cute enough to warrant a look ^_^
