    This reminded me a lot of Gokusen. Not necessarily because of the story but how its told. Its not really one storyline till the end but each episode has its own little story concentrating on one side character (...which is being helped by the female lead).

    I really liked the idea of one girl being in a school full of boys.

    (I mean what girl doesn't? ^.^) Sometimes it was cute and sometimes it was a little dramatic (ok, maybe sometimes a little too dramatic). The music was catchy, the acting was great and the boys were cute. This drama has a special atmosphere. You know, when you watch those (american) movies where the lead character dramatically gives a Speech/Explanation in front of

    At first I thought this drama would be boring because of the theme but it turned out be interesting enough. This is one of those dramas that is more about teaching life lessons. I was more interested in the relationship with the main girl and the actor boy. I did like most of the cast. Overall it is a very good watch but I wanted more from the ending.

Make a Recommendation More recs.Recommendations

  • They both have the punk/yanki type boys with pipes. The main characters are both females. Same idea of one female among a full class of males. The female tries to aid the males. The males constantly try to show their manliness and often refuse help.

  • both have a single girl in an all guy school though hana kimi has her disguised.

      he was just one of the classmates, kind of a delinquent (he always wore bandana & his hair was dyed) but i found a picture where he cross-dressed in the drama xD i remember that scene but i didn't realise that was him!!

    I went into this drama thinking it wouldn't be anything too special, but would at least be entertaining. Boy did I under estimate it! I'm on the last episode now and I absolutely love it. ^^ It's also introduced me to a lot of talented actors that I now wish to watch in other dramas. lol

    Much more serious than I thought it would be before watching, but I liked it.

    I'll rewatch it again at some point to see more of Kaku Kento. He was great.

    This represents majority of my reasons for watching asian dramas! "wisdom in jokes" kinda stuff and plenty of eye-candy in such unreal world. But still, I thought Nao should've ended up with Tamaki. I found Aruto's behaviour annoying...too many times he was just using his good looks in order to win Nao's heart so that didn't convince me about a serious love. Even though it was kinda obvious it would end this way..I was a little bit disappointed. But apart from that, one of my favourite dramas!! Btw, Nao's grandpa is AWESOME!

      Me too. Yoshino should have been with Tamaki in the end. They had much better chemistry together, imo.

    • Mcrew05 Apr 6, 2013
      Completely agree with you two. I was soo gutted when they didn't end up together :( I was really hoping it would have a plot twist and she would end up with the Tamaki.

    this was totally cute to watch. i really like how it shed light on the topic for those with working families, and a girl's acceptance of this different lifestyle.
