If you are aware of fashion in Japan you must have seen Liliko's face. For the last few years she has been at the top of the modeling world, with her face and body promoting the biggest brands. But as everyone who is in this world admits, staying on top is a constant and never ending battle. There are always new faces introduced to the public. Younger models and new looks are brought into the fold every season. And keeping that position means learning to adapt and learning to cope with change.

To maintain her position Liliko has decided to under the knife. This is not her first go with this service. It is yet another round of plastic surgery, all done to keep herself looking young and vibrant. However in this case just a little nip and tuck was not enough.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A Pretty Book With Some Flaws If I could I would give this a 3.8. The solid three for Vertical's excellent production values; a surprising amount of colour pages are presented at the beginning and the paper is good. Why I can't give this a higher rating is due to the story itself which left me very mixed to say the least. The detective guy busting down the surgery operations was a creep who is presented as the "hero" and it's not like the heroine is a saint herself since she does act deplorable but overall it's just a mess. It's hard to root for anybody at the end.
