Summary: ( Yukari is a high school student who goes to an elite high school. All her life is going to school or preparatory school as her parents told her. When she began to have doubts the way she lived, she met future designers group named “Para Kiss”. They asked her to become a model of the fashion show held at the school festival of Yazawa Art School. At first, she was embarrassed, but meeting Jogi who was pursuing his dream, she made up her mind to find her own dream. Having trouble with Joji's strange acts, Yukari was being attracted by Joji.

Review: Lots of mixed feelings about this premiere episode. On the one hand, it has the same staff hachikuro had, and you can definitely see it in the style of how the characters move, the colours used, etc. The soundtrack is fabulous and the story stays very close to the original manga. I kind of am rankled about how the character designs look on screen - but that's just because I was such a huge fan of the manga in the first place and let's face it. Yazawa Ai's art can't be translated onscreen perfectly. However, I'm totally satisfied taking everything into consideration. Let's hope things stay that way.
