Mei-chan no Shitsuji/ Mei-chan's Butler


Genre: Comedy, Drama

The story revolves around a young woman named Mei (Eikura Nana), who was rescued as a young girl by someone calling himself her "butler." With only a vague memory, though, the experience seems like just a dream. But one day, after her parents' accidental death, he appears: Shibata Rihito (Mizushima Hiro)comes from a line of outstanding butlers, and he has been appointed to serve her! Now her ordinary life has completely flipped, as she discovers that she's actually the heiress to a fortune, and is forced to transfer to St. Lucia Girls' Academy, an all girls school where ladies of prestigious families would learn to become a proper lady and succeed their family's business... and... where all the students have butlers!

I originally thought that this was going to be a pretty average (boring) drama. Boy oh boy was I wrong! I love it! Mizushima Hiro's acting is different here. It has a mysterious aura (well, duh, his character is pretty mysterious). So that shows how far he's gone in acting. The lead girl is the bestfriend in Proposal Daisakusen if you are wondering why she looks familiar. Also, she's the twin sister of Jun Matsumoto's character in Boku wa Imotou ni Koi Suru (ooooh!). Love it! Go and watch!
