A discussion of Skip Beat Manga Chapters 190-197
Skip Beat took things to a whole new level in volumes 190-197. Kyouko is forced to accept a ride to the studio or be late for work after her abduction. Who sees her riding in a car with Sho? Ren of course.
This leads to a lot angst for Kyouko – because she’s been on the receiving end of angry Ren – and Ren himself, because let’s face it, he’s the angst king. In the midst of all the upset, Sho uses Kyouko’s uncertainty to convince her to make a really dumb promise, since we all know where things are going with Ren. She pretty much told him that if she couldn’t become a famous actress without falling for Ren and ‘shaming’ herself, she would become Sho’s waitress for life. Kyouko’s cute and everything, but she’s pretty easy to fool – especially by master manipulator Sho. Which is too bad, since she promised herself she’d never let a man fool her again. Oops.
