A woman of unequaled beauty, Konno Izumi's (Nanao) looks cannot be described by words. With a perfectly balanced body and a lovable face, she turns the heads of all men that she passes by, and not only do the men turn around, but they are struck by a cupid and his arrow, who will most definitely come chasing after Izumi to ask her out. No is not an answer for these men, and they will risk anything to obtain the chance to be Izumi's significant other. For this reason, Izumi is unable to live an ordinary life, having to hide away from society, spending her days in solitude.
Akamatsu Keisuke is a student at a university of the arts who ends up substituting a painting class under art professor Aoyama Jin in exchange for credits. He is rather shy and reserved, and like all other men who meet Izumi, falls victim to her beauty. He tries to keep his feelings to himself but is unsuccessful. Izumi, on the other hand, is having an affair with Jin the professor, but her feelings for him are unrequited.
Based on the comic book by Higashimura Akiko of the same title, the story of the invincible beauty takes place in the traditional towns of Tokyo. A chain of unrequited love are portrayed comically as the characters intermingle with one another. Will there be happiness for Izumi in the end? You'll just have to wait to find out. --Fuji TV

I would agree that it does have its moments. The first couple of episodes I think set up a rather strange arrangement between the leads not to mention Tsune comes off a tad strong for someone who's supposed to be in middle school or high school. Don't get me wrong I get the character and all but her scenes with Izumi & Keisuke put them in a rather unflattering light (like a pseudo-parent-child relationship) and no matter how you look at it that's just a bit odd.xnopex wrote:no discussion? this drama is funny so far.
The other side characters I don't really have a problem with (the restaurant ladies in particular) but Nobuchika rubs me the wrong way even as a sidekick or tertiary character. In reality I think it's just the way they introduced him (as "interference" for Keisuke --- that's a nice way of putting it) and/or the continued shtick the writers seem to have up their sleeves for him.
