As I'm ending this...I really didn't know how to rank this drama. I REALLY enjoyed it. It has all the typical story, but isn't typical at all. It is unusual with a message to love yourself. Everyone has a complex and the trick is to work through it and move forward instead of letting things hold you back. I don't usually like over the top acting, but this was too cute. I read more totally love "goth/horror" girl. I guess her story was about how you should be careful what you say to people because words hurt. There will be at least one character's story that a person can relate to.

I don't even know what to say about the acting. It is over the top, but it is obvious that it is suppose to be. Oomasa Aya is gorgeous...it is kind of funny that her character, Sunako was put down because of looks. I wonder what her voice really sounds like, because it seemed exaggerated. Kamenashi Kazuya's character, Kyohei had just the opposite problem. He is really cute and his acting was the best out of all of them. I liked the other actors too. The little boy is adorable. The guy in the cafe always wears great t-shirts...if you watch this, then you should totally make sure to pay attention to that. :-)

The music is good.

I would probably rewatch this at some point.

I recommend that everyone watch this for the romance, bromance, and deep meaning wrapped in a silly, fun package.

I watched this drama after having seen the anime. I really admired the anime for being humorous and a bit different to others in the vibe it gave off.

The drama cannot say the same. It's not that I expected a lot from the drama, and it also isn't that it was awful. It was pretty, systematic and easy to follow. The production was of a good quality and some of the read more scenes featured some seriously nice use of eye-candy.

My problem with this comes primarily from the fact that it was not at all memorable. It didn't make me think, but more than that, it didn't make me feel. I never felt the relationship between the leads (although occasionally the other boys had bonding type moments).

This was the first anime with Kazuya Kamenashi in it, and I have to say, every other drama of his I have ever seen has been better than this, at least for his part. I felt his portrayal of the lead character was more wooden than a tree, which led me to believe he could not act. I have since watched other things that lead me to believe this is not the case, which makes me wonder if a poor script/storyboard was to blame.

Anyway, as mentioned, I don't dislike this drama, it's just that I got nothing from it aside from an awesomely hilarious opening song and prettiness. And honestly, what's not to love about a bit of prettiness?

Four Beautiful guys! One arrogant and stubborn man. Although the storyline is way different you would love Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge. The Comedy and love story is brilliant. Both stories tell you about what it means to be rich or poor,having a personality over beauty. It's a most see!

while the story lines are entirely different, both the female leads are extremely antisocial and try to avoid leaving their homes as much as possible.
both a great watch!

    It's a good adaptation of the manga/anime imo. I love the cast esp Kame, it was a good fun drama to watch. Bit ott and weird at times but that's what I love about Jdramas =)

    I'm watching this again. Everything is great but the little kid Takeru is annoying as hell (and I usually like kid actors :D).

    Kamenashi Kazuya and me are not very good friends usually, but I don't know, I came to like him in this drama. Well, the plot is a little far-fetched : a women who will come to live with 4 ikemen ... I would like to be real but it isn't right ? But Sunako is hilarious and just for her it's worth it!

    Anyway, it is far-fetched but it is not a big deal because it's why we want to watch it : because it will never happen *laugh*

    This was such a good drama. Light and fun to watch, some great little lessons to learn and you can't deny the eye candy - easily one of the best looking casts in my drama experience (yes, to me, they even beat the Korean F4).
    And even me, the grand lover of all things in a love triangle, found this drama refreshing with all the romances for each of the boys. The ending made me smile :)
    Highly recommended!
    [PS. Busunako, Busunako, BUSUNAKO! Can't get that out of my head!]

    First Drama :')
    To think if I hadn't watched the Anime so many years ago I might not have found out about the live-action leading to Dramas.
    Even now after watching loads of dramas I still love this so much :) Only drama I can ever re-watch :D

    Finished rewatching for the 4th time! I rarely rewatch any dramas, but this was so cute and funny that I just HAD to see it over and over again! Definitely love the chemistry between Kame and Oomasa Aya <3 They are so cute together! I love Aya as Sunako-chan! :)
