RightStuf Synopsis:

Be they homely, happy, chubby or busty, the Knockout Makers exist to help girls feel beautiful, inside and out. They'll tackle any tangle, blush any cheek, and even cross dress if they have to, all in the name of feminine beauty. But after five years and nearly a hundred makeovers, are makeup artist Toshihiro, hair stylist Nobuo and fundamentals expert Ryouhei ready to retire?Story and art by Kyouko Hashimoto.


Meh. I’m just disappointed and underwhelmed with this one.
Three guys work together, in a secret, special group, to make women feel beautiful and happy about themselves.
Most of this is quite shallow, which is annoying. But mostly there was so little development. The cases are all episodic, understandably, but we barely got to know the three guys. There were glimpses of pasts and personalities, and even possible romances, but none of it went anywhere. No real development, nothing serious, and then it just kind of ends.
I wanted more, and so I’m disappointed.
