This drama has been adapted from the shoujo manga of the same name, so it does have a very shoujoish atmosphere around it. It's like watching a manga instead of reading it. The circumstances are all same. The drama is like the main ambassador representing most of the shoujo manga ever written. Its highly cliched, hilarious and although we all know what is going to happen, we still read it up. Admit read more it or not, everyone sometime or the other likes a little dose of cliche,ain't we?
The story is same. THE INNOCENT DULL UNPOPULAR GIRL + THE HIGHLY DESIRABLE, INTELLIGENT AND 'most important, should be there traits' POPULAR AND CONCEITED GUY( type of guy which makes a girl squeal and fall head over heals for him) reminds you of something, eh?
The drama is full of cliches but it is still enjoyable and hilarious, the type of drama you don't need to think hard, you just watch it. actually if you think and question the stuff, you will never gonna enjoy the drama. Just sit, watch, enjoy its hilarity, cliches and bubbly and light atmosphere and relieve your stress.
Its boring sometimes though and one thing is missing here. a little bit of skinship and real kisses( c'mon who doesn't love real kisses,the barely-touching-lips IS NOT KISSING)!
ACTING; I loved the girl. She is sweet, bubbly cute with her manga like reactions and over the top imaginations. i had a problem with the main lead. HE LOOKED SO INDIFFERENT, i know you are supposed to be cold but atleast show some emotions, a little bit of jealousy(we understand you are jealous but we can't feel it). the second lead actors were better. Issei was cool and i felt so bad for daichi. He is too hot to be made the second lead. In my opinion this actor should be given the role of the main lead.
Music; nothing i can remember. Though it gave a happy vibe
Rewatch: I don't rewatch dramas unless i super like it, so no no for me.
So, you can watch it as a filler show. Or as a break after super intense stuff or drama. Cause this is perfect for easy watch. DON'T WATCH IT ID YOU ARE A FAN OR INTENSE INTERESTING INNOVATIVE DRAMA, cause this is definitely not one.

The story of this drama and the manga its adapted from, as everyone has pointed out, is not original. Girl and boy start living together and have to hide it from the people at school.

I enjoyed almost every episode, some felt like "filler" episodes but were still enjoyable. I didn't care much for Yuri's storyline. Girl needs to get it togther and stop unloading her problems on teenagers! It was also read more very annoying how cold Uehara was, but I still loved him because I am a sucker like Nao.

I enjoyed this drama so much, staying up till midnight on Thursdays, waiting for the new episode! The acting was very good, I really liked everyone's portrayal of their characters. Nagasawa Koya as Abe and Arai Moe as Marina were my favourites, such good comedic timing! Fukuhara Haruka was very, very good and I look forward to seeing her in more dramas.

I would definitely re watch this, and I really hope they do another season. I would recommend this drama for anyone who likes romantic high school dramas.

Both of these dramas are about high school students have have a cutesy feel as well as supportive friends. Both have shared actors - Sakurada Dori and Shiraishi Shunya!

    Was it just me or did it seem like the second part of this drama was just unecessary? I hate it when there are so many love rivals and problems that could have been discussed or avoided, I really enjoyed watching the first part, reminded me of some older jdramas I watched, although don't think I want to watch season 2... can't think what they could possibly do to expand the story even more.

    I was enjoying this for a bunch of episodes, but Nao is tuning into the same old naive, dumb, hyper-obsessive J-drama lead girl. Dropping it. Do they break up at the end? If they do, good. She needs to go off and mature a few years. Then maybe later they can start a new relationship.

    I expected a little too much from this I guess because it was so much hyped, what I got was an annoying female lead ugh her voice is so annoying and the cutesy act is as annoying, can't stand a female like this, she's not even cute to begin with, and there''s no chemistry between her and the male lead, dropped

    I don't know why I continued to watch this, Nao is dumb and obsessed and all those guys that like her she chooses the worst one for her? It was hard to watch in some episodes because of that.

      Thanks for the heads up, now I know I will not watch itakiss. Can't deal with another Nao.

      this is seriously much better than itakiss, nao's friends make sense, the guys who like her make sense, the lead guy shows way more emotions and he's way more reasonable, the comedy was natural and not forced.

      itakiss is one drama that is worse than boys over flowers korean version, both korean and japanese version of itakiss was so painful to watch that i'd rather watch bof -_- and for me that says a lot
      i just wanted to strangle the female lead in itakiss but for some weird reason i don't feel the same way about nao, she is actually likable somehow, imo whole aspect of good morning call is miles better than itakiss

    drama is better than manga...even if main girl is stupid and with no self respect and guy treating her pretty much horrible, which honestly usually i just can´t stand, somehow i kind of like this drama...i don´t know i just loving these kind of fluffy dramas when i don´t have to thinking at´s similar to Itakiss...i don´t know why exactly i like that story´s mystery to me really :D well anyway beside that i wish i could go and give it full score, because it´s just wonderfully fluffy but main actor´s acting is pretty much lame
