I really struggled through the first 2-3 episodes, but it eventually grew on me. I mean, there are meek female leads, pathetic female leads, weirdo female leads... and then there's Nobuta. They wrote her character in such a way that sometimes even I wanted to kick her so that she would start behaving like a semi normal person, and I have zero violent tendencies in me. She was hard for me to cheer for or connect to. On the other hand, Akira's character was way over the top. I liked him, but I wasn't too attached to him. Then, somewhere around episode 5, I really started liking the characters. To sum up, the first couple of episodes, the show was a mess for me. It does get better with time and it eventually becomes really sweet, but it's only a 10 episode show, so I basically struggled through third of it.

I did like the message of this drama. It's a touching story about friendship. I recently lost my closest childhood friend to cancer and this show really triggered an avalanche of emotions for me. I didn't expect this because of how the beginning was written. I am glad I watched it, though.

Straight 10s for me. Wondrous, I kept thinking this must get less good, like most of the drama series, however it brought out the characters perfectly while bringing in a few different ideas, so it was never boring. I was putting off watching the last episode for some time as I did not want it to end. I suppose there's always exploitation that's why Nobuta could not choose between the boys as her most important person - she knew the real relationship was between Shuiji and Akira. Great performances, great drama. Will re-watch some time soon.

I didn't really get this program I liked the idea of it but I couldn't understand why they went along with some of the schemes as you knew nothing good would come from it. The friendship aspect was the strongest point for this story in my opinion and they had a few good plots but it could have been better and the characters could have been more likable.

Умная и трогательная дорама про школу, молодежь, да вообще -за жизнь. Местами, правда, навязчиво назидательная, но в целом текст очень сильный. История стара как мир - приходит в школу чуднАя забитая девочка (волосы висят перед лицом как у гг в приснопамятном фильме Звонок) и двое парней - популярный Сюдзи и "дурачок класса" Акира решают сделать из нее популярную девушку. Но это оказывается лишь первый слой фильма, потому что под ним еще и еще и еще...
Первый раз увидела Каменаши - ничего не скажу, играет он отлично. Уже третий раз попадается Ямашита, немного достал тут своей раздолбанностью, но мальчик хороший Ну и Маки то я знаю, она мне всегда нравилась. Так что трио получилось сплоченным.
