Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge (Drama)


Genre: Comedy, Romance

Takano Kyohei (Kamenashi Kazuya) is a broke student with a hot temper, Toyama Yukinojo (Tegoshi Yuya) is the cutesy childish one, Oda Takenaga (Ushi Hiroki) as the cool tempered one, and Mori Ranmaru (Miyao Shuntaro) is the hot blooded cougar magnet. These four men live under the mansion of Nakahara Mine and her son Takeru. They could get free board and room if they could fulfill Nakahara's wish: Make her gothic niece Nakahara Sunako (Oomasa Aya) into a Yamato Nadeshiko- the ideal lady. The men take on the challenge and discover what Sunako has in store for them.

I've watched and loved the anime, so I was anticipating this one. I was hoping for devastatingly handsome men to play the guys, but I could live with the actors they cast. Honestly, it carried it's own weight. I mean fitting a long running manga into 11 episodes is not an easy feat, so I think it was very decent work, good acting by the cast, and the story progress was fast but enough to tell a story. There were a lot of good and funny moments too! It's a fun and short drama if you're looking for something to pass the time before cramming for finals. Hehe.
