Overall plot:
Madoka as her normal self This is a story about a girl called Madoka who is in reality a rather "dorky" kind of girl. However, once she takes her glasses off, she is very pretty. For that reason, her elder sister made her into a model. Her photos are plastered everywhere, but Madoka has not been found out yet. Her friends know, of course, but no one else know that this shy, dorky girl is the same as the cheerful looking, pretty model! Madoka is a very clumsy girl and also clueless about boys.

Madoka as a model One time at a store, she bumps into a display and knocks it all over. The attendant guy happens to go to an all boys school who she meets later with her friends because they drag her to a sort of "date group". The guy's name is Yuu and he finds Madoka extremely hilarious the way she apologises so earnestly and the way she's so clumsy. Her friends decide to go on another "date group" to a theme park and Madoka agrees.

Yuu At work in the studio, her sister is reading her the schedule but she is so busy thinking about if she likes Yuu or not, that she didn't hear a thing. That week, she has to work all week and even skips school to go to the studio and so on. She sleeps in on the day of the "date group" because she is so tired and she is late getting there. She is extremely tired and is about to faint and Yuu notices, so he tells the rest of the group that from now on it's separate and he drags Madoka away. Yuu likes Madoka for who she is, but when she falls over and her glasses fall off, he sees her without her glasses and obviously she looks like her model self. Her sister calls her, asking where she is because she has to do a shoot. It's at the theme park where they're having a group date!

Madoka runs off and goes to the shoot. She is all dressed up and the guys from the date group come to see "Madoka the model". She has a graze on her knee from when she fell over previously and Yuu notices. He runs through the rope barricades onto the shoot and asks if she was just playing around with him and it was all an act before. He is about to walk away when Madoka calls him back and she is crying, acting NOTHING like the real "Madoka the model" would act like. She says she was sorry for lying but she never had confidence in herself and etc. etc. Yuu apologises also, he was just being mean because he suddenly felt like the girl he liked was so far away from him since she had only ever shown him her real self from the beginning.

My opinion of the story:
This a cute, sweet typical Ribon type of story with a happy ending. Cute girls, handsome boys, you name it! I love the art too and the main characters are both unique, but ones you can relate to.
