Yeah, I'm watching this.. I like it alright, but I think Nana is completely wrong for the part--it seems more like an Ueno Juri role. I hope they end up showing a lot more of Tanimura Mitsuki's char cus she's hilarious. But yeah, the cast on this show is really strong.

GJ, T!

I don't think Ueno Juri would've liked that excessively short skirt they're wearing, though. :lol: Besides, Nana cut her hair short just for this role. That's how awesome she is. Except from that, man am I glad to see Iwasa Mayuko again.

I personnally like drama with school and all à la Hanazakari No Kimitachi e and Nobuta Wo Produce and I especially love Eikura Nana  :wub: (i hope her hair will grow further in the drama lol, or put a wig?)
I started this drama because of the awesome cast  :w00t: and the theme (school).
What i like is the rank thingy
Shadow (ombra)
Moon (Luna)
Sun (Sole)
and the A, B, C rank
well maybe because i like to rank everything . . .

Looking forward ! Ima watch episode 2

EDIT :

Ugggghhh . . .

Been loving Tanimura Mitsuki's pro acting skillz since Pandora.
And since most of her previous characters were really serious, it makes it even more funny seeing her doing this.

check the relationship chart. that's like the number of 2 casts!:


Points of interest from it.
- don't the 'sole 4' have any butlers?
- REAL butler twins on top-right?! (main 2 brothers... twin brothers...spider-sense is tingling) :roll:

yeah, i saw that notice on d-addicts yesterday. without going into one of my tirades about sub-teams, i hope they get over themselves and keep going. if not its okay, two other teams are set to sub mei-chan as well, itll just be a little slower

Oh hellz yeah.

I'll probably warm up to Nana soon enough, I just haven't seen her in many roles. Needs more Tanimura Mitsuki though, so funny.

I watched the first two episodes and apart from Nana being cute, didn't really like it... There was nothing I really found that funny, and nothing about it really interested me. Plus it really just feels like a teenage girl's drama (which I usually enjoy...) and just can't relate that much I guess.

I have to say this drama is really entertaining a and unusual. It long since I have watch a manga adapted after Hana Kimi. This is truly something and promising.

But the one that slightly keep disturbing me fully enjoyment is the lead actress. Sincerely I love her in Proposal Daisakusen but in this live action, the lead actress should garner more powerful emotion and struggle. I can see she trying to portray the emotion but not we can't feel she try hard enough it just didn't delivered and we can't feel it. It just "whoa I really want to feel you, but why it just didn't feel that". or " The emotion just in the surface" Believe me, I try very hard to like her acting here, but just failed. I prefer as above post mentioned Ueno Juri (Nodame) but anyhow I still looking forward for further development.

Other than that, a really strong storyline strong cast and a very interesting and unique plot. My obsession for now.

yeah me too, more i watch, more i find it corny and simple minded. I kept on skipping scene.
The cast is only the good point even if we havnt see the others in action

And its done.

It was a fun watch. Started off kind of shaky, but it picked up halfway through. The cast was definitely the main draw, though.

I thouroughly enjoyed this show, and would recommend it. I did like Nana in Proposal Daisakusen, and I thought she earned a lead role in this comedy, and did a great job with the opportunity.
Also, thoroughly agree with Tenkei about Shiori Kutsuna- I would probably watch a speech about the history of the tax laws of 17th century Japan if Shiori was reading it.
