Not Your Idol Vol.1 by Aoi Makino ARC review

52758012. sx318 sy475

RELEASE: MAY 05 2020

welcome to this book review,

Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book in exchange of an honest review !

This manga was a surprise, the art is what first caught my attention and the premise really intrigued me. From the first couple of pages I was captivated, the mystery of knowing why Nina (AKA: Karen) left the idol world and was hiding, dressing herself as a guy (even though everyone knew she was a girl) with a new name in a new town. I hated Miyu and her victim blaming/downplaying sexual harassment of herself and another girl. The author beautifully wove the links between the people and the surrounding events without giving away the punch.The cliffhanger left me wanting for more !I totally recommend.Though it should get some trigger warnings for sexual and physical harassment and PTSD.

4/5 stars
