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

Japanese highschool comedy drama
28 November 2005 | by (Singapore) – See all my reviews

An excellent 11 part TV series featured in the fall TV season in Japan on NTV.

The show utilizes the typical teen school angst genre, but with surprising twists, and characterizations. Focusing on the storyline of a misfit young girl bullied by her classmates in a cruel way that has been the topic of many news stories in Japan. The young girl is saved by two male students who along with their new charge transform her, and themselves. The camera angles, music, and energy is quick paced with in-joke references to other Japanese pop trends. What could be clichés turn out to be fresh moments.
