Move through Fantasy and Reality while watching Asian Drama!
Description: Kiritani Shuji is the popular guy who gets along with everyone, from the jerks to the nerds to the just plain weird. The one person Shuji cannot stand is Kusano Akira. To Shuji, Akira is just plain annoying. He laughs, talks and acts funny. Things heat up when a new student comes to school. Her name is Kotani Nobuko, a girl who has no self confidence at all and is content at being made fun of and bullied in school. Shuji and Akira come to an accord that in order to make use of their "youth" they will "produce" Nobuko as the next popular girl. One of the conditions, however, is that nobody should find out that they are working together as a team to make this concept possible. Unveiled here is the story of true friendship between three unlikely candidates who would not have been friends if not given the special circumstances.
Nobuta wo Produce
A very funny drama with a feel good unique story as well. A lot of people think this is one of the best dramas strictly from it’s cast and it does have an all star cast with Kamenashi Kazuya (Gokusen 2, Mr. Brain), Yamashita Tomohisa "Yamapi" (Proposal Daisakusen, Dragon Zakura, Kurosagi) and Horikita Maki (Kurosagi, Atsuhime, Densha Otoko) to make an all star triad of stars in one drama. There is also a very good cast of lesser roles with the likes of Toda Erika (HYD 2, Liar Game, Code Blue), Okada Yoshinori (Atsuhime, Hana Kimi, Atashinchi no Danshi), Ukaji Takashi (Hana Kimi, Hanayome wa Yakudoshi, Ninkyo Helper) and more. The ending song "Daite Senoritta" by both Yamapi and Kamenashi doesn’t really suit the serious but it’s a damn good song so who cares lol.
This is a drama very good in all aspects, not the best but high on the list and sure to be a favorite no matter what you like…
