Read full description of the books Backstage Prince, Vol. 1:So I finished this book this morning . . . and this is what my face looked like.
BOTH of their faces!!! One face was all dead-like because yup. Another typical and cliche SHOUJO MANGA. (Don't tell me there's cliches in beautiful things like manga, too!)
This romance ZOOMED PAST at light speed. Something like that can't be realistic, right?
The other face is tearing up because...okay, those of you who read my reviews know very well that I
I do, with this huge, huge passion! What do we learn from them?! AND WHAT'S ORIGINAL ABOUT THEM?! CLICHES ARE LIKE COPYING OTHER PEOPLE'S IDEAS AND CLAIMING THEM AS YOUR OWN! That's CHEATING!!!!!!!!
(Whoa, calm down Theresa...)
Anyway, I know. I shouldn't be freaking out over just a review. But seriously, come on. Romance doesn't happen that fast.
My darlings, let me show you exactly why this very book is a cliche cliche.
1. SUPER HOT GUY.
Why does the guy have to be super hot? Huh?
Well, I guess the story does express that some hot guys are jerks because they think they're the fo-shizzle.
And a lot of girls don't trust hot guys because they think that hot guys are jerks because they usually are.
But you shouldn't judge someone's looks because they might be hot and seem jerky on the outside, but on the inside, they're cuddly teddy bears.
OOOOOHHHHKAY, so the hot guy is okay in this case. BUT NOT IN OTHER CASES.
Like for example, a very hot guy falling for a very hot girl. (Or vise versa.)
THAT WILL JUST MAKE PEOPLE THINK THAT HOT PEOPLE WILL ONLY FALL FOR OTHER HOT PEOPLE, or that only hot people can fall or be fallen for.
And this, my darlings, is
Romancey love can happen to anybody, okay? Somehow, in someway. THERE ARE A TRILLION POSSIBILITIES.
2. This romance went by VERY. VERY. VERY FAST.
I don't know. The two meet.
And then there's that minor drama you get.
And then all of a sudden
Boyfriend and girlfriend.
I don't know, there was something curious about this story. I mean, some of it, I really do like.
Akari sees.....I forgot his name. Ichi.....something. Let's call him Ichi.
She sees him, and he glares at her because he doesn't like people, but of course he keeps it to himself because...mysterious, secretive anime guys are cool.
And she's like.....oh. Awkward.
And her friends are like, TSK! GIRLFRIEND! That guys a jerk! (When they were JUST swooning over him.)
THEN she goes into a kabuki club and sees him. And she learns more about him, who he REALLY IS.
And Ichi notices that Akari isn't like other girls. She's different from other girls. She doesn't go, "Oh-em-GEEZAY! WHAT A JERK!" when he glares.
And she takes his fits and his irritation with a smile. She doesn't take things totally seriously like a lot of girls do.
And that's how he feels that she's...something he needs.
THIS PART OF THE STORY IS WHAT I LIKE.
I gotta tell you guys a story really quick....that I sorta told in some of my other reviewy reviews, but here it goes.
Once upon a time, one of my friends told me about her ex-boyfriend because I asked her about them. I didn't know they broke up.
"It's okay," she said. "I'm the one who broke up with him. He always found something to be upset about. He could never be happy. URRRRGH, it was just so irritating."
And yeah, I kind of understand that. I mean, if you're a happy person, and you want to be around somebody who's also happy, but that person is always down about something, it brings you down too! Sadness is contagious, you know!
But...then I started thinking...What a poor guy.
He just needs someone that will make him happy when he's upset, or who will comfort him instead of backing away!
I thought I could help, maybe. NOOO, I wasn't trying to snag the guy for myself! Trust me, he kind of looked scary at times. His mutual face was a glare, and he was this sorta huge guy. He did look like a really scary dude that people wouldn't want to mess with.
He was just...that one quiet guy that just sat in the corner and looked at everyone who glanced at him like this:
But, I got the blallals to march right up to him from behind and say, "HEY! DUDE! Are you okay?"
I say that to a lot of my friends that have broken up with someone. They either seem okay with it, or they seem down. But I try to perk them up! Let them know if there's anything I can do!
He looked at me like..."Who is this crazy, little, Asian chick?" but he didn't say that out loud. (He didn't have to.)
But he said, "I'm fine."
"Do you promise?"
I kept doing that to him a couple of times. I thought it was probably starting to annoy him.
But then...about a week later, the day came when he asked me for my phone number.
And THEN we started talking. And I got to know the guy better.
And then I started thinking about what my friend said about this guy and I realized....
SHE WAS ABSOLUTELY RIGHT!!!!!!
He did sort of find things to be upset about. He was always doubting me and saying, "Theresa....you're going to be just like everyone else. You're going to forget about me, or get upset with me somehow, or get annoyed at my depressingness.....Theresa.............you should just leave now before you hurt my SOUL...."
I'd always get super annoyed, and say, "YOU KNOW WHAT, YOU PUNK?!?!!? I'm NOT going to abandon you! I'm going to stick with you RIGHT TO THE END! Don't worry, I'm here for you!"
And then he'd respond with, "Okay." With the dot-dot curve smiley face. :) As if nothing even happened.
GAAAAAAAAAAAAAH. That guy.
But I realized why he kept talking to me. He never really talked to anyone else. He was always that depressed guy sitting in the corner with nothing to say.
He said no one ever really tried to talk to him, or care about him. Especially a stranger. And I was just that one really weird girl that appeared one day and asked him if he was okay, when I didn't really even know him.
And besides, his smile looks a lot better than his glare. And it feels absolutely AWESOME when I'm the one making him smile.
And we're still smiling together, right now. ^_^
So yeah. I understand what this story is, and I understand Ichi's situation, and Akari's situation.
And then the adorable thing about this story is...Akari didn't want to give up on Ichi when he made her upset. Because love will survive through anything that the world will throw at it! That was absolutely MOVING! FIST POUNDING! HEART CLENCHING!
Hunh. Now that I think about it...This book is not as bad as I thought it was.
I guess the only bad thing about it was
3. WHY DID THE ROMANCE GO BY SO FAST?!?!?!?!?!
She suddenly realized she loved him.
He suddenly realized he loved her.
WHAT HAPPENED?! What the heck?! Love doesn't happen that fast!
Maybe the author is like me, and wanted to hurry and get to the romantic parts. (I'm writing a story and I really can't wait until I get these two characters to kiss....URGH. It's torture. I want to write a kissing scene SOOOOOO BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAD, so it's tough making a romance that takes a long long long time for the two characters to realize their true feelings for each other!)
But yeah. I've always thought that love stories had to be REALISTIC in order to teach someone something. Or at least, part of it has to.
I mean, Twilight was NOWHERE NEAR being realistic. And it taught me only one thing:
Vampires are only vicious when they're not able to sparkle.
SPARKLING VAMPIRES?! Those aren't scary! Come on! (Why...do I always rant...about Twilight in reviews for books that don't have anything to do with it?!)
Anyway, if you don't mind such a fast and quick romance, where (view spoiler)[THE FIRST KISS IS IN THE FIRST VOLUME (hide spoiler)], please...come and welcome yourself into this book.
As for me, it just feels like the whole story for me was in one book, so continuing this series? I'll have to think about it.
THREE SPARKLY SPARKLY STARS.
