– There is a live action of Skip Beat.
– I don’t believe there is a 2nd season of Skip Beat the anime.
– I have only watched the first episode of the anime. I’ve read the episode list descriptions before…but that is how far I’ve come with the anime. I prefer the manga so much more.
– The story can be seen as slow, but it doesn’t feel like that at all. It’s an amazing manga, and I would recommend it.
– About once every month, a new chapter of Skip Beat will come out. Chapter 219 is the fastest chapter to come out (took a day).
– Personally, I do not like rereading or rewatching animes and manga. However, Skip Beat is that rare manga, for me, that I can reread as many times as a I want and still get nervous over parts I already knew about.
