Product Overview

Yukari, a beautiful high school student, is studying for her college entrance exam. Her entire life is based on the education formula, which means the most important objectives are to get good test scores and get into a good college. As a result, she has been stressed out by trying so hard to please her parents.

One day, she runs into some Yazawa School of Design students who are part of a group called "Paradise Kiss," and her life begins to change. They want Yukari to model their creations in the annual school fashion show! At first, she is hesitant about doing anything other than studying, but as Yukari is influenced by the unique members of Paradise Kiss, she begins to notice that there is more to life than schoolwork.

ReviewSource DVD Verdict
Review I've seen a lot of anime in my time, from the established classics (Akira, Cowboy Bebop, Evangelion) to the lowest trash imaginable (see my dossier for examples). But if there's one anime sub-genre I've stayed away from, it's shoujo, the soppy romantic dreck (with occasional detours into "magical girl" nonsense, such as the ever-popular Sailor Moon) aimed at Japanese schoolgirls...Paradise Kiss is shoujo, and its premise is a recipe for pain...As unpromising as it sounds on paper, Paradise Kiss is, in execution, a pleasant surprise...I'm not a teenage Japanese girl, so Paradise Kiss clearly isn't aimed at me. But I don't need to be in the target demographic to recognize that it's a cut above the average shoujo. Despite making concessions to its genre's conventions, it is unusually complex, mature, and daring.
