Storyline

Shuji (Kamenashi Kazuya) is one of the most popular guy 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

The greatest drama I've ever seen.
18 April 2006 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This Japanese drama is nothing short of amazing! Having got addicted to it whilst I was in Japan, I managed to watch about 5 episodes there, and now have watched this drama countless times over the internet. Everything is amazing; from the acting, to the storyline, to the filming techniques. I never thought that such a simple plot of two Highschool boys producing the new student into the most popular girl at school could be made into something so interesting. My favourite character is Akira, and I can't praise YamaPi enough for how well he did this. Kamenashi also did a marvelous job on creating Shuji, and from the articles I've read, he really put a lot of thought into his character of Shuji. Not to mention Horikita's character of Nobuko (Nobuta); so realistic that when I see her out of character, smiling and being normal, I almost can't believe it. This drama made me feel so many emotions- happiness, sadness, loneliness, and inspiration. Overall, I think 'Nobuta wo Produce' is one of the greatest dramas I've ever seen- it had me falling out of my seat laughing, then staring wide-eyed at the screen crying. It's a story about friendship that stays with you for a long time. KON KON!
