It has been a long time for me since I have written a review but I really have to give one
for this Drama. Because it deserves it!
I have always been a great fan of high-school-dramas, especially when they have
a "hero-like" main-lead :)
(maybe my addiction to them comes from Gokusen)
But for once I didn´t even plan to watch this Drama. By accident I clicked on it on a streaming website and I must say that this is one of the Dramas which are unexpected gems!

The plot was very well-done and it served it´s purpose. I was glued to the screen each time I was watching the episodes. I even put on-hold currently airing dramas such as "Kill me, heal me" only in order to watch a new episode of this Drama. Besides being a light watch, it involves a few darker themes as well (such as disappointment, bullying, betrayal etc). In my opinion it was the perfect mix of them. My favorite part weren´t only the held speeches but the presidents encouraging of her classmates, teachers etc in the middle of each episode were really touching as well.
I didn´t feel the need to stop to watch the Drama, like I tend to do with many melodramas.
But still it was enough to evoke excitement in me. Especially in the middle of the Drama.
As for the ending it didn´t quite satisfy me (no I won´t spoil it don´t worry) but then again it made me happy as well. You will see what I mean when you have watched it :=)

The female leading role (the president) seemed sweet and sincerly in her role. Her acting portrayed her innocence and ever growing strong will well, though I wouldn´t say that it was outstanding.
It was enough for me that I felt along with her and I really enjoyed her role a lot :)

The male main lead was more like a mysterious side-character who played a major role in achieving her dreams. At first I thought he would only play a gloomy, minor role but it turned out to be different.
I wouldn´t say that I will miss his role as much as from the sweet president, but I really enjoyed the interactions between him and her.

As for the other roles I personally really liked the "platinum" group, the student rulers of the school. I would have wished for even more of their screen time. Instead they more likely became side-characters.
There was no actor/actress whose acting I found to be "bad" and therefor I gave 9 points for the cast.

This definetely isn´t a cheesy drama as you might expect from the synopsis and I am glad that I came to watch it. I can assure you that most likely won´t regret giving it a try as well. It will be worth the time!

I began watching Gou-Himetachi no Sengoku because I am a really big fan of the history from Japan.Until then I have already watched a few historical asian dramas.But I didn´t find so many good japanese dramas.The most outstanding dramas were koreans;)
But I must say that I was really impressed by this drama!
When I am bored by a drama I usually skip some parts but this drama here made me so addicted ,that I didn´t want to stop watching it.I watched the first 10 episodes and then I always contined to wait exited for the next episode :D You never know what will happen next and it really moves your feelings.In the first moment you must cry and the next moment you just laugh out loud! Even though it isn´t a comedy,the Cast in the drama is performing really exeptionally.You can perfectly understand their point of view and because the story is based on a true story, it feels even more real.
For the plot;
Basically the story is about a princess who is used from the birth for political matters but in the end she becomes the wife of the Shogun whom she really loves.This drama shows her strong personality and how she fought through her life until she finally found happiness ;)
I can only recommend it for everyone who wants to learn of the japanese history and who wants to see an exeptionally played drama with outstanding actors! Even when someone might don´t prefer watching historical dramas , it is worth the lenghts of 47 episodes

Yasha. From it´s name you could never guess the real value of this Drama here.

I must say that I found it a few days ago by coincidence.
I was randomly looking for good and interesting Dramas to watch when I found out about this one. The plot seemed really interesting. I don´t know the reason but somehow it drew me kind of to watch it.
I was shocked.Deeply shocked...But not because it was bad, it was because of the low rating it had.I saw it when I was updating my episodes.I watched all 11 episode in about two days.Please I want to say beforehand that some people tend to say it wouldn´t be"that good"when it´s already so old.Well I must admit I thought so at first.Because it´s the first time I watched a Drama from 2000.But that was predjudice and I corrected my mind about that now!
The time I watched it I never skipped one part and I thought many times about giving it a 10.But I didn.´t.And do you want to know the reason??
Because it isn´t one Drama which you can judge fast.I thought four days about the rating I would give it.In the end I gave it a almost perfect 9 because I didn´t like ......that about TWO mysterys weren´t solved in the end.So for ME it wasn´t the perfect ending.In short it is a almsost 10:DD

The music: The intro was important for the feeling you get in the whole Drama.When at first I didn´t pay attention to it,it made me watch the second and third and fourtz episode..etc.Only because of the intro in the beginning.It´s like a mental preparation for these partly horrible,exciting and lovely scenes.But in all I didn´t notice other outstanding music while watching the episodes.Mostly only in the beginning and ending of the episode.Still I don´t stink it was important for the whole thing so I didn´t mind.MAybe it would have even destroyed some special scenes.At leat it was great without it.

The cast: There was only one main.role and it was my absolute favorite.It´s stunning how he managed to play both-the twins-so convincing!!!They were totally the opposite and still I was deeply moved by both of them(lol at first I only felt hatred to one of them though).The main-roles were really good too.But not all of them. Still I gave it a 9 because of the exceptional main-role and the other supporting roles.The Drama was like that:The more important the better the actor/actress.Yes that´s fitting.

The Story: It was one part I thought about giving a 10 and yes you could say I was snapped but there were a few aspects in the story developement in the end I didn´t like.Still the whole plot was amazing. I was stunned about it.It was simple but amazing.Probably because of the great actors who played it!
Rewatch value:I am not sure if I ever want to experience these exciting and partly annoying acts of this Drama.You should have watched it at least ONE time and the rest everyone should decide for themselves. You learn by watching this Drama and depending on how much "you want to review" ,I would say you should watch this Drama again.

Well I for myself have enough of the Drama!!It may appear weird but I am somehow fed up and than in the end just relieved and happy that I finished to watch this Drama here.
Now I wrote much.I am sorry about it but I just thought everyone should have the chance to know the value of this Drama here.
That´s the reason why I wrote a review to it.Sure that I loved the Drama and wanted to show it to others....was a reason for it as well(:

Before I have decided to write an review for this Movie here I saw that the others who wrote one as well seemed to be pretty disappointed with the outcome :)
I absolutely disagree with that! It was just awesome and it fitted exactly in the image I would have imagined for the live-action after loving the Manga and Anime so far...Sure it is my favorite Anime and I may be an little more in favour of it already before but it didn´t disappoint me^-^The actors were perfect for the roles,Miura Haruma as Kazehaya and Tabe Mikako as Sawako.I was most impressed by the actress of Sawako,she played her role very good and I could understand all her actions .What surprised me was that I was seeing the image of the Sawako in the Anime whom I loved very much before in a new whole image as before.It was stunning how I discovered habits,special ways of moving etc...in her.I got to know the same Sawako whom I knew and at the same time I found more,interesting things in her personality.Kazehaya supported her great acting and made it perfect all in all....The ending may differ an little from the Anime/Manga and therefore a few persons are disappointed but I am actually happy about the fact that it was different because it didn´t get boring because of that reason ^^
As for the music I gave an 7 because I rarely did notice it but I enjoyed to hear it as an background in some scenes*~*

Just one minute ago I finished watching this Drama here.
You may wonder why I gave it such a high rating?
It´s the first time I am absolutely sure about the reason for myself.

To simplify it I am stunned.
Stunned by the loving actors and the ending too....

I have watched the Drama before and just discovered it today after finding out about the Movie. I did give it a 7 though~
I was too sad at the end. Weirdly I am not too but with a kind of relieved feeling.

As the synopsis says already the story is about an girl who is ill. In short she can´t endure any sunlight. She is playing music every night alone ont he streets till she meets HIM.
Oh and already in advance I apologize for my long review >< I don´t know who to shorten all this here....

Story: Sure everyone may think it´s a sad story. But it´s worth it time. It´s the first time I am thinking like that after a review.
Usually I am just getting upset if the ending may have been unsatisfying. Here I just cried for me alone till the end.
You always wonder and know what happens till the end too. A simple story made into a great love story!
Acting/Cast: From the beginning I loved the girl. Usually the main-girl is always the most important person for me in a Drama/Movie. If I don´t like her...then it get´s hard to like/love the Drama/Movie in itself already.
This time the actress got my heart in ONE instance. REally natural acting. I loved watching her. Especially singing *smiles*
She has a beautiful voice~
As to the main-male-lead he was great too...I am not sure what to say about him but in my opinion he was fitting her personality perfectly^^

As for the girl´s parent´s....They were like parents I could imagine in real life perfectly. You could see their love coming towards the girl~ Nothing more to say here.You will see it if you may want to :)
Music: As I stated before I loved that girl´s voice. It was just plain beautiful and always in the perfect moments. Like a pure voice. Yes you could sayy it like that. Especially ONE song is still stuck in my head right now. What I really liked too,is that the actress sang it for herself!!!!And when she has ended there are scenes you are just dreaming...It´s weird but everything is silent and you can see how that works on you even more.
Rewatch Value: Sure I am not sure weather to ever watch it agaín but I can say it´s my wish to do it. You can learn a lot by this movie here. If I ever feel the modd to watch it again I will. I am sure I will be as touched as right now. YES I will~
-AND YOU TOO!!!!

That´s all to say to it ....If you want to ask anything further just feel free to ask me (:
