Protip: Drawing muscle-y pictures of yourself does not make you more masculine.
Alright, on to the topic. Strawberry Shake Sweet. It's about these two girls who are idols, kinda like models who pose in pictures and do some acting and stuff like that, and one of them's supposed to be mentoring the other. The more experienced one is named Tachibana Julia, and she's pretty assertive and strong willed, as well as unexpectedly perverted, unbeknownst to herself. The other one's Ran Asakawa, and she's basically kind of an airhead, until she starts getting more serious as the series goes on. The series is pretty short, so it's an easy glance-over, and it was one of my first introductions into the world of yuri a few years ago. :3
Plotwise, this manga is acceptable. It moves along, and you can see Julia and Ran end up with their own different modeling work, and the lighthearted drama that arises from that. The art is nice, and very expressive, while the characters themselves are likable and have their own hilarious quirks. It's really a mix of the characterization and the comedy that makes it good--this isn't the best yuri out there, if you're looking for deep relationship stuff intermingled with realistic emotion and sometimes dark or dramatic or depressing feelings...but it's damn good for what it aspires to do. The group ZLAY (guess what they are parodying?) in particular tends to epitomize the wtf humor.
ZLAY, being retardedly funny and reminiscent of tsukkomi and boke.
And hence why I grant this manga a place on the Top 5 list, even though it's not on the top 5. Yeah, I apologize for being unconventional and stupid. But I will do it anyway. Easier to ask forgiveness than to get permission, right?
Strawberry Shake Sweet gets an Honorable Mention from me. So it is written, so let it be done.
