R to L (Japanese Style)

Life's not easy when you're living in the shadow of your famous parents. Can shy Yura, the daughter of an award-winning composer and a world-renowned actress, find the courage to step out on her own now that her super-celebrity parents are getting divorced?

The media is abuzz when word gets out that Yura's mega-famous parents are splitting up. Already accustomed to the daily pressure of being the child of celebrities, Yura's frustration explodes in a rant against her parents--and her heated words end up being broadcasted live on national TV! When a powerful talent scout hears her impassioned declaration, he offers to represent her. The door to showbiz is now flung open for this timid wallflower--will she try to become an actress in her own right?

Review:

"In Honey Hunt, Volume I, Aihara offers the first installment of a fizzy teenage soap opera about the life of Yura Onozuka. The mousey daughter of a famed composer and a glamorous actress, Yura's life is turned upside down when her parents' divorce becomes a tabloid sensation. Feeling betrayed, Yura decides to become an actress herself, believing achieving fame will be the ultimate revenge on her parents. A mysterious, and possibly nefarious, agent helps her chase the dream, and she soon wins the lead role on a TV show. Along the way, Aihara (Hot Gimmick) offers hints at a future romantic triangle (an Aihara staple) involving Yura, Q-Ta Minamitani, a heartthrob composer, and his more menacing twin brother, Haruka Minamitani, an actor and musician. There are ceaseless twists and turns on Yura's journey, including a public meltdown and a betrayal by her mother. Throughout, Aihara's delicate artwork vibrantly illustrates Yura's constantly fluctuating emotional life, especially her moments of panic, confusion and self-doubt. The difference between the depiction of the goofy and sometimes dowdy Yura and her glamorous mother and the sleek Minamitani brothers makes her self-image clear."
