Storyline

Shuji (Kamenashi Kazuya) is one of the most popular guys in school. He tries to avoid Akira (Tomohisa Yamashita), because of his constant annoyance. But Kame isn't just like that. At home, he's a total different person. He goes to a willow tree every morning, because he made a pact to go to it every morning. One day, when going to the tree, he is extremely shocked to see it gone. And suddenly, he sees a girl emerge from behind the stone where the tree once stood upon. She jokes about how it wasn't the best place to kill herself, but he is terrified and runs away. The next day, at school, he seems to be his popular self again, and the girl turns out to be a new student...in his class!! She is bullied by the mean girls, especially Bando. Shuji and Akira then decide to produce the girl, who is given the name "Nobuta", to one of the most popular girls in school! Written by Jin Akanishi's wife/ KadajJenova

It's amazingly original and has become my favorite Japanese drama
12 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This drama is pretty amazingly original. If you're taking a break from those predictable love dramas this one is good to sit down and watch. Although it looks like somethings gonna happen to the three's friendship, things turns out different. This drama is unpredictable and fun to watch. The storyline is also very interesting and if it isn't, it is always fun to watch what happens to them as they spend more time together. If you're fans of Kame and/or Yamashita, you'll enjoy their acting and characters; especially Yamashita's. His acting in this drama is my most favorite out of all the others I have seen, and Kame's acting was also better than in Gokusen. The girl in the story's acting is also really amazing. These two guys are a great combination. The ending song is sang by Kame and Yamashita. It is really the greatest song and goes well with this these two guys.
