    Overall, Act-Age Volume 1is a wonderful shonen series, and one that is a must-buy. With chapters available on the VIZ Media's Shonen Jump, no need to just stop at chapter seven. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Jordan Richards Jul 7, 2020

    'Act-Age' Vol. 1 is a diamond in the rough, much like how Sumiji describes Kei. It has a strong hook and plenty of good ideas in it, and its main character and their evolution as an actress are fascinating. But it takes a while to get going, the supporting cast doesn't jump out initially, and the artwork struggles at times. While enjoyable, hopefully the next volume makes the series truly shine.

    The manga has already attracted praise, being nominated for a Kodansha Manga Award. It is also establishing other characters and rivalries. The end of the first volume sees Kei auditioning for a Battle Royale-style film in which the main talent from Stars, a woman named Chiyoko Momoshiro, is also starring. Thus we can expect growing tension, at least between Arisa and Sumiji and possibly between Kei and Chiyoko too. It will be interesting to see where it goes from here. Read Full Review
