Default [J-dorama] Nobuta wo Produce



Genre : School drama

Quote:
Synopsis
Kiritani Shuji is the popular guy who gets along with everyone, from the jerks to the nerds to the just plain weird. The one person Shuji cannot stand is Kusano Akira. To Shuji, Akira is just plain annoying. He laughs, talks and acts funny. Things heat up when a new student comes to school. Her name is Kotani Nobuko, a girl who has no self confidence at all and is content at being made fun of and bullied in school. Shuji and Akira come to an accord that in order to make use of their "youth" they will "produce" Nobuko as the next popular girl. One of the conditions, however, is that nobody should find out that they are working together as a team to make this concept possible. Unveiled here is the story of true friendship between three unlikely candidates who would not have been friends if not given the special circumstances.
(Nobuta wo Produce - DramaWiki)
Can be found @ : Nobuta wo Produce | Watch Nobuta wo Produce Japanese Drama Online

Spoiler!


The spoiler is from the sp.

The show is nice, but I hate the fact that it focuses more on Shuuji instead of Nobuta.

Kon~ :3

Cath's Take

The series started out slow for me, so I wasn't very expectant of this one at first. I had no prior feedback other than reading the back of the DVD package. But... I must say I was pleasantly surprised when the story started to pick up and I realized it was not the cookie-cutter high school love triangle at all!

I love the highly introspective narrative approach. Each other characters have depth expressed in nuances like an easily overlooked statement or a look, and all of that seem to somehow come together at the end of every arc or episode and suddenly everything seems so clear. The pace is unhurried but every now and then there's a surprising snatch of dialogue that makes me go "oh!"

Now I can see why it racked up so many awards a few years back. Needless to say, this is highly recommended from me. ^_^v

I'll definitely be checking this one out. It sounds interesting but I cannot say until I've watched it. >_<

I already made a thread on this dorama ... but no one replied
(http://www.mymmogames.net/forum/dram...o-produce.html)

Anyways, the dorama is nice, but it seems to revolve more around shuji rather than nobuta. o.o

I liked the drama separate from the original story. ^^; As itself, definitely loved the drama. I mean, it has Yamapi and Kame. <3 Kon~

I can spoil what I heard about the original story but... >____>

You can type in spoilers as long as you use the spoiler tags.
