Beautiful,Very Beautiful
24 December 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When I first started hearing about this series on AnimeTV,I have to say that this series is magnificent,and it was. When I bought the entire collection of this show at Moviestop,it was the best. I gotta say this show has a good storyline,and great physic. My favorite characters I liked in this series are:Yukari,George,and Izabelle. And I really do like Yukari wearing the beautiful blue gown she wore to the fashion show. She really looks like Cinderella. But what this series really tells us that it's important to have a dream,and always focus on the first thing before moving on.And also,doing any dream comes with a greater responsibility. I do believe that Yukari has learned that first things always comes first before reaching the next best. But however,this show proves all. And another thing about this series is the great voice work. So in closing,if you want to see something good,then watch this series,and you will see what I mean.
