    Not Your Idol is a beautiful yet tragic manga that delves into the struggles of trauma while challenging gender norms. While it's not for the faint of heart, the series' compelling narrative will draw readers in as they witness Kamiyama's struggle. The story is delving into delicate subject matter, but it's an area that is tremendously valuable to explore. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Kate Snchez Apr 23, 2020

    Not Your Idol Vol 1 is a standout series debut. It tackles real-world issues with a flare that only shojo can bring to the conversation. While it isn't perfect, it is a strong example of powerful conversations that young readers should be having and can help many teens learn that if something happens to them, it isn't their fault, just because they're a girl.

    Overall,Not Your IdolVolume 1 is a mixed bag. There is too much going on to get a grasp of where the story is going and what it wants to say. Its clumsy and somewhat frustrating to read. There are certainly some interesting elements here but so far theyre not enough for me to recommend this to shojo readers. Perhaps its a title worth revisiting when Volume 2 rolls around.
