[Feature] As Told by Saena: Skip Beat! and the infinite variety of women’s stories

Skip Beat! is a manga series following Kyoko as she navigates the entertainment industry in Japan and builds a name for herself as an actress. By primarily telling events from Kyoko’s point of view, Skip Beat! has often conformed to the pattern of telling a “single story.” However, in Volumes 37 and 38, the manga’s perspective shifts in a big way, giving readers an unexpected glimpse of Kyoko’s mom Saena through her own eyes.
