カノジョは嘘を愛しすぎてる 1 (Cheeseフラワーコミックス) - 青木 琴美 {March 17th, 2014} UPDATE

Gonna give this series a reread since I keep losing my place. I love the music aspect this manga has. Inspired me for a story that may or may not happen somewhere in the future. The artwork is gorgeous as ever. <3

{March 19th, 2014} THE REVIEW

I remember first reading Kotomi Aoki's Boku no Hatsuko wo Kimi ni Sasagu and followed it to the end. I really liked the story for various reasons. One of them, besides the art style, was probably the characters. They're given to you broken in their own ways...like us, mankind isn't perfect. We're flawed and sometimes we're broken by events and matters that affect us deeply.

This is the kind of mindset I dove into Kanojo wa Uso wo Aishiugiteru when I first saw it released and translated. There's been many stories depicting the glamour of being famous...here, you see what people perhaps forget once they achieve fame--the harsher reality of being famous. The setting is the music industry. There's lots of various aspects linking to music--bands, singers, CDs, composers, singing, etc--you name it.

The story is centred around Ogasawara Aki, the famously mysterious composer for the popular band Crude Play, who meets 16yr old Riko, the daughter of a grocer. Now with this story deals with various matters such a drama (what's life without drama?), relationships, and everything else contemporary; however add the music scene and everything gets complicated as events happen and opportunities arise and life goes onwards.
not gonna rehash the entire blurb, since it is up there and in English

Even though I'm rereading these (since I lost my original place), I'm still looking forward to knowing what happens next.
