Arashi members Ninomiya Kazunari and Sakurai Sho star in this comedy series based on "Yamada Taro Monogatari" by mangaka Ai Morinaga. Ninomiya plays the title character, Taro Yamada, whose family lives in extreme poverty. But because of his looks, intelligence, and athleticism, others mistakenly believe that Taro comes from a prosperous family. In contrast, Sakurai plays Taro's best friend Takuya, who really is from a successful family and who often helps out Taro in various ways. -- Tokyograph

Yes, I am at least.  Although it's been 6-7 years since I read it all.  Quite a funny series, I wonder if they'll include the scenes where Ninomiya would have to be in drag...  ^^;

I haven't read the manga before but I checked it out after I watched the first ep.  I think the drama is better, explains things more.  That girl is seriously delusional, look how many clues there are that he's not rich. :roll:  I think the casting is good.  Nino does look like he could be rich or poor.

Everything about this drama is so fun haha. I really liked it and I'm not sure it's even that good haha. Totally worth watching, at least.
