Oh wow, the first thing that popped into my mind after seeing that picture was that it looked like Hanazakari no Kimitachi he.

I've never read the manga that this drama's based off of but the story seems a bit weird and I'm not too fond of Nana Eikuta's acting (Dandori anyone?) but I wonder how it will turn out???

I'm really excited to see that Hiro's in it though!!

I actually liked Nana's acting in Dance Drill. The promo picture itself looks similar to Hana-Kimi's, with the fact that they placed all of these people together in rows, but what I love is that while Horikita Maki's "girl-dressed-up-as-a-boy" looked like a girl, I mistook Nana's "girl-who's-just-a-girl" for a guy at first, even though her character isn't meaning to be!

The premise of the manga is more similar to Ouran High School Host Club, though, with guys that cater to girls needs. I've been excited for this for a while, because I think the story itself seems cute.

Ahh, I see~ I couldn't find much information about it but it seems like it'll be a fun drama if it's similar to Ouran High School Host Club. :lol

There's a long summary for it here. ^^

Short, non-spoilery version: Mei (Eikura Nana) is an ordinary high school student who learns that she is a member of the Hongo Group, a major corporation, following the death of her parents and transfers to a very exclusive girls school where each person comes with a highly capable butler. With her handsome butler, Shibata Rihito (Mizushima Hiro), Mei overcomes the bullying of her classmates to become a fine young lady.

I was surprised there wasn't a thread for this drama until now.

Just watched the episode 1. The drama is soooo different from manga. But in a good way, I think. It's more realistic. Somehow it does have a little "Hana Kimi" feeling, maybe 'cause there are at least five actors from that lol

Still, it reminds me alot of Hana Kimi, esp the cast... but I won't judge the drama yet for that ^^
For now, one thing is sure Hiro is sooo gorgeous, omg everytime they close up his face.. I squeeze! XD Ayaka is so lucky ^_^
ok, I'll continue this drama, even if it turns out crap, Hiro solely is enough lol


Ps: btw, I uploaded the 1st eps stream here

I do hope this will be adapted more closely to the manga than how Hana Kimi turned out to be. Hana Kimi was an okay jdrama by itself but when compared to the manga, it gets your blood boiled.

At least episode 1 is nothing like manga. I think manga is faaaar from being realistic. Drama will likely make more sense in that way.

I agree, but it still sticks to the story presented in the manga...
but, I was wondering:
in some of the scenes, the setting looks exactly like Hana Yori Dango...[as in the school looks exactly like the interior of Domyouji's house]
maybe they used the same sets?

Just watched ep 1 online- thanks to nomanymore for the link...^_^
Have to say- I was slightly disappointed...hope it will pick up in later episodes...

And a question:
The manga hasn't finished yet!
So, does anyone know which volume will the live action go up to?

I watched the first episode, and while the idea seems cute and has potential, and I'm a huge Mizushima Hiro fan... but the show was totally missing the charm of HYD or the fast-paced editing/cinematography or clever script of Hanazakari, IMO. so... does anyone think this show has a chance of picking up?

Could you possibly consider screencapping the 1280x720 version? I've done it for the 704x396 one and it's not the best quality for icon making or anything. XD;;

Do you want screen caps from just the whole episode in general or of certain actors?

There are actually a few specific scenes that I want caps from, but the whole episode would be AWESOME! XD And hey, if there are any scenes that you want icons from, then I could make them with the caps~ :3 Thank you very much, in advance. ^^

Just finished watching episode 1( thank you, unleashthegeek for the subs). This drama has a potential to be good, but Eikura Nana pretty much ruins it with her horrible acting.

I'm a bit sick of these "bullying" stories, but I have to admit that I like the character of Kento (and also love Mizushima Hiro!) and the ending makes me look forward to next week.

as much as i thought this will be some rip-off from HanaKimi type of comedy flick filled with cute guys and all, i find myself pretty much amused for the most part.

:lol
It's not as funny as HanaKimi, but i like the fact that it's a totally different story this time around and having the guys serve the girlz. Although i have to admit, the story itself sounds stupid and crazy, what's with having butlers serving the girls like Goddesses, and the actions they do make me cringe sometimes :crazy: But still, i find myself laughing. It's nice to see cute guys do baka things, and that amuses me :P (i just need some comedy to balance more serious dramas i'm currently watching like VOICE, Triangle...) I guess, for the sake of releasing some stress, I'm gonna continue with this. Oh, btw...i like that small girl (the youngest one) with her butler, they're cute)
Thanks for the subs too, unleashthegeek!!! :thumright:

I quite disagree. I think Eikura Nana is doing an awesome job~ She might not be portraying the character the same way as the manga character is, but she doesn't suck, nor is she horrible.

I was wary about watching this because I had only seen her in one other drama before, but I love it! It's cute and light hearted and even has it's bits of drama~ in my opinion, the perfect drama. (For now, since it has only been one episode.)

It's surely for comedic value, but i'm liking this one. There seems to be a few different plot twists in the works in the first episode alone, so i think it will get interesting.

i checked out the manga... and volume one was very different from the very first episode. it was kinda weird, her guy friend from school is supposed to be really kakkoi and should almost look like his older brother.. i like i like the drama setting more than the manga. but i'm still going to check out both for comparison purposes.

I really liked the manga. However the manga is very childish so i guess they are maturing the characters a bit. The drama so far seems totally different than the manga in my opinion.

Mizu Hiro in a tux :wub: . Whoever posted the screen caps, Thankyou very much!! :D I haven't read the manga but I think both Hiro & Nana look adorable together. I just finished watching the 2nd ep. [spoiler]So at the end of the 2nd ep it is revealed that Yama Yu(Luchia/Shiori) is Nana(Mei)'s 1/2 sister? as I don't think that Mei's mother is also Shiori's? but I wonder why Mei's last name is Shinonome and not Hongo? I thought her dad's last name was Hongo? It's too bad that there can't be any romantic involvement between the Shitsuji and the girls. I hope that in the end Hiro & Nana will become a couple :wub: . In the previews for the 3rd ep, Hiro said to Nana that there is a reason why he wants to be of use to her. I wonder what his reason is, I hope that they are not some how related :pale: as I don't think they are. Also what Aoyama told Mei near the end of the 2nd ep. as thanks for her help he told her how Hiro(Rihito) waited to choose the girl to whom he wants to be of use to/or be a butler to, as he rejected the many girls he could have chose from. Anyone have any ideas as to what it could be? This drama reminds me of Hana Kimi and Hana Dan but it is different and interesting. :mrgreen: I can't wait for next weeks episode.[/spoiler]

I'm really enjoying this one so far. It's light-hearted and funny. Even if it does follow a similar formula to shows like HanaKimi (hoardes of ikemen). But I think the actors all have good chemistry together, and Hiro is...amazing as always.

^
that is the reason why i read the manga and i posted this on my lj i thought you guys wanna know what happened in the manga

MAJOR SPOILERS
The Manga is different from the drama especially how it started. So things can appear in the drama some things dont appear. Shinonome Mei is actually 13 years old, so is Shibata Kento, but Shibata Rihito is really older, So here's what in the manga:

Lucia/Hongo Shiori (Yamada Yu) - also younger in the manga around same age as Mei. After Shuutaro (Mei's dad) left the Hongo Family, Kintaro adpoted a kid and thats Shiori, she used to be the heir of the Hongo Family, but their grandfather didnt know Shuutaro had a daughter they know it after his death so Kintaro changed the heir to Mei since shes from his real blood. Now shes mad at Mei because, She thinks Mei is in the academy to kill her so she can be the heir and then Rihito used to be her Butler but they changed her butler to shinobu-san now, since Mei appeared.

Shinonome Mei/Hongo Mei - like i said earlier shes suppose to be 13, unlike the drama shes not boyish, shes very bright and polite little girl and she adores Rihito very much. When she was a kid she dreamed of this Bulter saving her and carrying her. she said she hoped to meet her dream butler one day and thats Rihito ^^ She asked Rihito before whats the reason why he became a butler and she said "To serve The Best Mistress" Mei said she will do her best to become the best mistress he ever had, so this is the reason why she attended the school.

Shibata Rihito - Same like in the drama he's polite and everything, his family are all serving the Hongo Family, his mom is the head of the maids of the Hongo family his granfather is the head of the butlers. also understanding his rank "S" they only award the S butlers once every 10 years, so this is the highest rank ever for a butler and its really hard to look for a S Butler. MAJOR SPOILER is before Mei left for Saint Lucia, Kintaro told him he wants Rihito to be Mei's future husband but he has to wait for 5 more years until she becomes a lady, and he wants him to sleep with mei ;__; Rihito doesnt want to do this of course, but he really likes mei <3

Shibata Kento - Kento is also 13. Kento is suppose to be kakkoi and not Loud like in the drama, Kento have this Li Syoran aura in CSS: smart, kakkoii, Ignorant and he really likes mei, he left school just to become a butler and he really studies in the butler school beside Saint Lucia. He doesnt trust his own brother because he overheard him and kintaro talking about him being the future husband and sleeping with mei, but mostly he jealous because he likes mei ^^

also theres a rule in the school: BUTLERS AND MASTERS CANT FALL IN LOVE WITH EACH OTHER, but practically in the manga the masters and butlers are in love ^^ but acting like theyre just butlers and masters but they really do care for each other, like their jealous if their butlers look at other girls and stuff ^^

that is the reason why i read the manga and i posted this on my lj i thought you guys wanna know what happened in the manga

MAJOR SPOILERS
The Manga is different from the drama especially how it started. So things can appear in the drama some things dont appear. Shinonome Mei is actually 13 years old, so is Shibata Kento, but Shibata Rihito is really older, So here's what in the manga:

Lucia/Hongo Shiori (Yamada Yu) - also younger in the manga around same age as Mei. After Shuutaro (Mei's dad) left the Hongo Family, Kintaro adpoted a kid and thats Shiori, she used to be the heir of the Hongo Family, but their grandfather didnt know Shuutaro had a daughter they know it after his death so Kintaro changed the heir to Mei since shes from his real blood. Now shes mad at Mei because, She thinks Mei is in the academy to kill her so she can be the heir and then Rihito used to be her Butler but they changed her butler to shinobu-san now, since Mei appeared.

Shinonome Mei/Hongo Mei - like i said earlier shes suppose to be 13, unlike the drama shes not boyish, shes very bright and polite little girl and she adores Rihito very much. When she was a kid she dreamed of this Bulter saving her and carrying her. she said she hoped to meet her dream butler one day and thats Rihito ^^ She asked Rihito before whats the reason why he became a butler and she said "To serve The Best Mistress" Mei said she will do her best to become the best mistress he ever had, so this is the reason why she attended the school.

Shibata Rihito - Same like in the drama he's polite and everything, his family are all serving the Hongo Family, his mom is the head of the maids of the Hongo family his granfather is the head of the butlers. also understanding his rank "S" they only award the S butlers once every 10 years, so this is the highest rank ever for a butler and its really hard to look for a S Butler.

Thankyou very much for the Manga Spoilers Shiget^ :D, those spoilers of the manga made everything a bit more clearer.. Although it looks like they did change things around from the manga to the drama. But in the drama [spoiler]I don't think Rihito served anyone else other then Mei? as Aoyama told Mei about Rihito and how he chose Mei, but in the manga he really was Lucia's butler before Mei's? But in the drama it did seem as if Lucia might like Rihito or the two of them had some kind of a connection from the past or what not. And the reason he wants to be Mei's butler is that so he can be her future husband according to the Manga? :wub: I hope they use that in the drama as well, although I feel bad for Rihito's brother as I think in the drama he likes Mei as well :cry: Thankyou for all the manga clarifications again Shiget^, much appreciated. Shiget^, do you like the manga or the drama better so far from the 2 episodes?[/spoiler]

I think he decided to become a butler because theyre family is in it and he wants to serve mainly the hongo family, i think he always says he only wants to serve mei ^^ but of course as the story develops thats its not only to serve her ^^

for me even tho i cried in some chapters in the manga id say the drama is better, coz its funnier moreover the manga is weird coz you'll see mei as a 13 year old and grown man falling in love ;__;

so drama is still the best :thumright:
hey soft subs for ep 2 is out XDD I CANT WAIT FOR EP 3 XDD

usually when i check out the manga version of a drama, i end up liking the manga more than the drama. but i think it won't happen with this one.

i also couldn't help but read both Shiget^ and Machihxh's spoilers. :lol
since i already read it might as well give my outtake.

in episode 1, Rihito's younger brother asked him why he was there for Mei instead of serving the Hongo family since he is in fact an S Butler... (the highest position a butler can reach) then he answered his brother, "You already know the reason." or something like that... and that was said with a very meaningful look registered in his face.

when i read the spoilers, the real reason is because he was really in love with Mei in the first place and knew all along that she was from the Hongo family as to what i have understood from the posts. But because this is the Drama version and they have ALTERED a lot of things... i would still like to be at least kept in the dark until everything is revealed and things develop eventually. :D
btw... do you guys have any idea if someone has uploaded the OST and insert song as an MP3 in a downloadable site? (imeem not included)

I like drama more since it's at least little bit more realistic (like I probably have said before). Also if the drama was like manga, the whole Mei-Rihito thingy would be sooo perverted and odd.

I like the manga better too, but of course they have to change alot of material BECAUSE it's a drama. They can't just follow the manga, I just wish there were more chapters subbed for the manga. I only got up to Volume 3 Chapter 17. Does anyone know any other place that has more chapters subbed?

The first episode was alright, yeah it had Hana Kimi vibes but didn't like how fast the episode felt like they were rushing through everything which may it hard to get into with the characters nor did I felt bad for the main character for losing her parents, wish they had given more time between her and her parents. We didn't even see her say goodbye to her friends like I said it felt rushed.

This series has potential to be really fun just hope it gets better for it to reach that level like Hana Kimi was fun to watch.

Me too! That he can pull off that white suit so well was fascinating from the start. :blink

And I agree with sungie, I also like the drama more. It doesn't feel rushed to me at all... :unsure:

I love the first episode. Crack! Having some of the actors from HanaKimi there does not deter. It doesn't have that HanaKimi feel for me. If at all I'd say it's another school drama. I had fun watching if for it's own sake.

I agree that the twins looks a bit like Oguri Shun. But I didn't notice they were twins. (>____<)

Btw I asked the person who had shared My SunShine by ROCK'A'TRENCH on IMEEM and she sent me the song as well as gave me permission to share it with others. So I've uploaded it in MF and MU at the place below. :)

They are real twins. :wub:

Takagi Manpei as Akabane Ukon
Takagi Shinpei as Akabane Sakon ... according to DramaWiki, but this seems to be pretty much their first appearance in a drama.

Thankyou very much for their names, Maryvel! :D At first, I too thought that one of them might be Oguri Shun, hehe. But then realized that his name wasn't on the cast list so I knew it couldn't be him. :blink

after hearing what the manga is about.
i have decided i will read the manga after the series is finish.
because mostly likely i will still love the manga after the live action.

nana is enjoyable. i dunno how mei-chan is suppose to be like in the manga, but mei in live action is pretty cute. not TOO cute and not annoying. nana is doing a great job in pull off the short hair. i totally want that haircut if i had the guts. lol

hiro seriously makes a great rihito/butler.
(on the side note, i have always been undecided about if ouran host club had a live action, who would become tamaki, now i have the answer. hiro would make the best tamaki :wub: )
