Blessed with good looks, Takano Kyohei, a college student, is always suffering from the unreasonable behaviour of customers who want him and the sexual harassment of his store manager. Because of his hot temper, he loses his head on this occasion and is fired from his part-time job. Then one day, the glamorous owner, Ms Nakahara proposes, "I'll give you free board-and-lodging if you can turn my niece, Sunako, into a lady!" Kyohei and Toyama Yukinojo, Oda Takenaga and Morii Ranmaru, the other guys living together in the same boarding house, are enthusiastic, but the person who appears before the four of them is a spooky girl whose hair covers her face and who loves horror and vampires. And so, their tumultuous communal life begins.

clairesilverspar gives you a list of her favorite scenes where characters finally came clean about their feelings.
Kailin's look at Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge, from manga to anime to drama.
Despite its silly actions, "not-so-horror scenes" and childish problems, this drama has outstanding humor and exquisite point of view. Kyohei and Sunako are so much alike. Although Kyohei hated himself because girls fell in love with him for his looks only and Sunako hated herself because her first love told her she is ugly, both characters wanted people to look at their hearts. This silly drama has demonstrated a HUGE worldwide problem. Even though our wronged opinions are based on people’s appearances, we are striving to find someone to accept who we are and our true nature. The second point of view that this drama shed a light on is, if you want to be loved, try to become the person you love and try to
love yourself. I don’t mean you become cocky by the way, but try to see that you are special or else why would you be born?. By the way, this drama isn’t ment to be serious as it is adapted from a manga, thus don’t expect the actors or even the problems to be serious

Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge is a drama with not a lot of sticking power. That does not mean I didn’t like it. It has some really good episodes but overall it didn’t leave me with that joyful feeling of watching something great. It didn’t leave me feeling a little sad it was over.

The writing was uneven. There was a fun supernatural element along with the premise of 4 flower boys living in a mansion and charged with turning a goth girl into a lady. The friendships were portrayed nicely and the love story was cute. Some episodes were good. But some were just bad. The last one left me cold, with a twist I did not like.
The acting was uneven. Some gave pretty good
performances. Kamenashi Kazua was a standout. But he’s been pretty good in the three dramas I have seen. Oomasa Aya was good as the girl who loves blood and skulls and death. The others were a little choppy but I got passed it because I liked the friendship between the four boys.
I think I have seen too many really stellar dramas to fall in love with this one. But having mentioned the negative things let me mention a few things that I liked: I loved the relationship development between Kyohei and Sunako. They truly had some very funny moments together and some very touching and cute ones as well. I liked how fast he came to accept her even if he took a long time to sort out his feelings. Sunako truly had some fun/funny personality quirks. The dynamic of friendships in the house between everyone was enjoyable and kept me watching until the end. I loved that house! I want it!
The music was forgettable except for one little detail: The bar/café they frequent has a very fun detail, almost easter egg to watch for. I’m not going to spoil it here but watch closely. Once you figure it out…It’s very fun to keep your eye out for.
The rewatch value is low for me. I probably won’t watch this again.
This is a cute drama…it has it’s value and it’s place. If you like supernatural elements in dramas and a cute love story, this is one drama you may like.
