I suggest you to change the order of the actors.
The leading ones are Kamenashi and Oomasa Aya (even though in the original story it's only Sunako, not Kyohei).
And Tegoshi should be under the spoiler since his is a secondary role.

I love the manga and I really recommend it to all of you. It's awesome!
I'm quite disappointed with the casting, but that's another story.
Still waiting to see if they can pull it off, though.

Didn't know they were making this into a live action. A little leery about the casting but will check it out all the same and hope it's good.

Actually, in the first announcement about it, under the lead actor section, only Kame's name was stated. Everyone else was classed as co-stars.

Even in the newspaper, his photo is the biggest, about 5-6x bigger than all the other casts.
Like this:

And in the news' clips that were recently broadcasted (like asazuba for example), he's not only the one who was shown the most but also the only one whose character is described with details by the announcers, the other casts were mentioned with very general information.

I think all of these are able to give us an idea about whom this drama is going to focus on.

I loved this anime except the chibi bits. I felt that the constant representation of her in chibi was just too much and the nosebleeds were overdone. Let us hope they do not do that in the drama.

Harle is not contradicting what you say, we all know they have turned Yamanade into a drama where Kame is ahead of all characters even when the original story is not about Kyouhei; she has just pointed, and quite right, that the two main actors are Kame and Oomasa not Kame And Tegoshi as the actors pictures disposition seem to suggest.

I am with her that those should be changed and leave out of the spoilers Kame and Oomasa or maybe all out but in thumbnails.



It is obvious by my icon that i am a big fan of this manga, i have been reading it for years (many) and i am still reading it whenever a new chapter lands in my hands and will keep on doing it. If you have not please do! It's great :)

Got to say i always pictured Kame in this drama, BUT as Ranmaru, a character he fits much better. I had expected a better cast but now it's done and we can just see what happens :S

Unfortunatelly i can't help to feel discouraged :(

I'm not thinking opposite of her. I'm okie with her wanting Tegoshi to put together with the other supporting cast.

The only difference in my opinion is that even though Aya should be considered as a main character just like Kame, from how the press & television announced the information of this drama, it's clearly that almost everything just focus mostly on Kame only.

Directly speaking, I was just trying to be subtle about how I think that everything I've read & seen on the news seems to lead to the idea that Kame is the only main character here. Maybe I should edit out that line about Tegoshi in the quote so people will get what I mean to say better.
My thoughts are correct or not, we'll have to wait to see the drama itself to know.

:scratchchin: I was just wondering the other day in Favorite Manga thread about somebody making this into live action. I should wonder more often because it comes true quite quickly :P.

I have to agree completely. I love the manga and the anime as well. But I'm a bit wary about the cast. Kamenashi Kazuya isn't my first choice as Kyohei. I would've thought Ikuta Toma was a no brainer for this role. Toma certainly has the look down. For fans of the manga and the anime, we know that Kyohei is the best looking boy ever (as the story went). Toma may not be the best looking but he is certainly closer to that than Kazuya (no offense).

I never really thought My Boss My Hero's Sakura-something could be mistaken for a girl. :scratchchin: So to put him in a role with that description doesn't seem to fit. The dude playing Ranmaru seems too old. The boys were supposed to be in high school.

I'm excited about Oomasa Aya though. I've always thought Sunako was a pretty girl and Aya would do just fine. :thumleft:

I really can't wait!!
The story seems fun, and I do like Kamenashi as well..

:salut: to JOR..
Ganbatte kudasai yo!

Anyway, i do believe in Kame's abiility to act. He did very well in Yuuki and also Nobuta. Compared to Toma, Toma might be better, but I think Kame is not that disappointing also.

Let's just see what he can give.. :thumright: Go, kame..

Several sites have people complaining on the casting. Why not wait and see what Kamenashi can do? I honestly believe that given a good script he can do a really good job. And there are plenty who find him handsome and pretty at the same time. Even if he isn't your type exactly he fits that description very well for a great number of people.

I find some of the complaints odd though. "He's not tall enough" - he is Japanese. He isn't going to be towering over people. Many anime/manga draw their chars with long legs and freakishly tall. To expect a human, and an asian human at that, to appear the same is bizarre. "It should have been Jin!" I love Jin too, but why emphasize the criticism he can't act by typecasting him? I actually like the idea of Kamenashi cast for a role he isn't typical for, although I would have preferred for him to be in something other than yet another manga adaptation. (Note that these criticisms are from elsewhere. I am just preemptively presenting them since I am sure it's a matter of time before they come here.)

Personally I think let the drama come and see what happens. Nothing can come of your disagreeing with the cast. More powerful people than you already decided it so either you will watch it or you won't. I can only pray the script is decent. I think the actors may surprise you. This is a great story with a lot of potential so I am hoping the drama turns out well.

HUGE cheers to JOR subs for picking this up fast. You guys are all about quality so I am really looking forward to that.

Not sure about the casting yet, but seems like it will be focused on Kame again (like in the Gokusen movie hehe) But he's alright :D, so just gotta wait til January to see what they make out of that great anime.

OMG it's true? a drama of Yamanade? <3333333
I really love the manga and didn't dislke the anime so I hope that this will also be good!

Gotta be honest I haven't seen Kame in much drama yet... only in Gokusen 2 and I can't really remember him in there *ponders*
But well we will see how this drama comes to a stand in January!

Yeah, what to expect... they have changed all the story to make Kyohei the main character, that is so wrong for people like me who are big fans of the manga, Sunako and Kyohei have almost the same importance in the manga but even there he is still the second main :(



slopoke

Maybe that would have never appeared here if you had not brought it, up to now there was nothing of that matter here.

Got to say though that from what i have read about criticism come from people who know the manga and the characters personalities by heart and love and defend them, and as has happened other times they want to see their fav piece of manga well portrayed, many also know the actors chosen and can give their opinion based on knowledge, i think it's all right to listen to their opinion. By what i have read around the criticism is less about the actors themselves than about who has been picked for each character. For example me, with the cast we have i can see Uchi being Kyouhei, Kame Ranmaru and the dancer guy Takenaga, Tego is ok as Yuki and i have no idea about the girl's acting but she has quite a hard character to portray, wish them all luck.

About the height nonsense i just can point to Matsujun magnificent Doumyoji as example, but also that there are many over 1.80 japanese actors; maybe they point at the height because the producer said they had casted Kame because of his physical hability and may have read physical appearance instead, i have notice that many people missundertand what they read.

But as you said what it's done it's done and we can only wait to judge based on what they will show us.




I have read the rest of comments and feel like i need to point two things:

1. They have set Yamande in College not High School (i think this is an improvement :) )

2. Yamanade is not like Nobuta, i know that when people read "guys changing girl" that pops up but it's not, you just have to read the manga to see it ;) or watch the anime



And here http://tsuyaka.livejournal.com/42392.html there is a list of scenes that will be filmed the 5 and 6 , TBS is asking for extras. It's a start to know what arte they using from the manga so far.

Yeah, I have no intention to hide the fact that it made me kinda disappointed.

You know Hana Yori Dango? There're some similarities in these two: one heroine & 4 important male characters - among them, there's 1 who is most involved with the heroine. When they made the drama, they let Inoue Mao (who played Tsukushi) to be the 1st lead, even Matsumoto Jun was considered as "supporting" (he won Best Supporting Actor in 10th Nikkan Sports Drama Grand Prix after all).

Shouldn't they learn from it that it's not always necessary to put the hot guy on top of the cast to make a successful drama? =.=

Every fans of the manga/anime knows what position Sunako holds in the whole story. But now, when they decided to make a live-action, they let Kyouhei overshadow her & be the number one character instead.
How can we, who know about the manga, not be sad about it? :(

I wonder... if it would be like HYD, then it would be good right? I like HYD, beause they kept the heroine! and they didn't make Jun the lead! So if they would follow HYD, then they would let Sunako be the heroine and that would only be good, because then they wouldn't change the whole concept of Yamanade

I was sooo shocked just now when I saw this thread. I couldn't believe there will be a drama for this series! I had a similar shock when I saw Otomen. I will be very sad if they take the lead spot away from Sunako. I will still watch it loyally.

Meteora

That's the good of the Drama Discussion threads, this one exists to talk about the drama, good or bad, what we see or what we expect (so far we just can talk from knowing the manga and the actors); the fangirling stays out in the actors threads, the important thing here is the drama.

In fact there are more than a few simmilarities, they have the same director...he did well in HYD 1 packing all he could from the manga and trying to give it sense and conclusion despite the changes in 9 episodes (i bet that if he had known they would have a second season he would have done better), he managed to keep the spirit of it, i just hope he does simmilar in this one....

Exactly, make the actors work for the drama not the drama for the actors, that was one of the main points HYD was so well recived by the manga fans, they didn't turn the story around, and Jun was fantastic.
I really would like to, at least! see the spirit of Yamanade, that's why i'll give it a chance after all there's little more than a month to see it :)

I have a lot of fears regarding Sunako, i really really hope they keep her true to herself, strong,wild, not cute/kawaii at all...and never taking a second seat to Kyouhei in anything, specially fighting.

Another fear i have is how and if they will show the world they move into, Visual K, Jrock, goth lolitas...; it would be a great chance to show that that world is as much acceptable as the "kawaii" one, that one sometimes gets on my nerves...

And Noi, Tamao and Machiko? (i am guessing Hoshino Aki to be Auntie)

I know all the difficult topics (sexual harrasement, bullying and such) nakedness, sexual tension, Sunako attempting to murder Kyouhei more than once(this can't be off!! :lol ) is going to be diluted, being a 10 pm drama i somehow understand even when i don't like it much XD



By the way i played "Spot Her" with Oomasa in HYD 2 XD I found her!!

I have been thinking about this her very depressive and dark character will definitely get diluted. very sad really. Plus Hiroshi what a treat it would be if they could bring him to life.

This looks like it is going to be interesting. I liked the Manga and i don't care so much about the casting just if there is a decent script.

Hopefully it will turn out okay.

Woahhhhh cool. I didn't know they were going to make this Live action. Hated the anime adaptation so hopefully they can do justice in this drama version. I like the cast so far. Don't know much about the girl though, but all the guys are cute.

Edit: Why so many complaints about the cast? I think Kame-san can actually pull this off. He is a good actor so lets give him benefit of the doubt. As for Tegoshi ... dude seriously when I first watched My Boss My Hero, I was like huh who is this girl (that was my ignorant self before knowing who NEWS, JE, and Tegomass were). Give him the right hair, makeup and I'm sure he can pull off the look of a "more beautiful than a girl" type of guy.

Sorry have to add: I'm so glad that there will be no TW version :whistling: Have you seen other TW adaptations of Japanese mangas? They make the mangas we all love become lame and cheesy.

@Marieluna: You hate HYD? I thought that was the best adaptation for the manga. I personally hated Meteor Garden (guys may look like their roles, but none of them could act ... at that time because now most of them improved)

And Sunako IS the lead female character. Without her, there wouldn't be a Wallflower or Perfect Girl Evolution to "evolve". Wonder how this Aya actress will portray her because her personality is supposed to be glum yet funny and not overacting. Haha love her skull friends.

Kame may not be the best looking idol to have appeared in recent years, but he's the best of the crop in acting. I haven't followed the dramas of any of the "idol actors" from Gokusen 1-3 since, except for Kame.

I like the manga. I know why people are furious about the cast choice and characters focus. To be fair, this, together with Ouran High school Host club are two of the manga that, I think, should never be made into drama.

However, I kinda understand why they put Kyouhei forward as the main character - with this line-up of cast! It's like ...if you want to put a JE in general in a drama, he must have one of the top spots. And if he's not gonna be the lead one, then the spot must be taken by someone who has lots mote experiences than him. Take Kimi wa Petto or HYD or Anego as examples! Shinohara Ryoko-san,Koyuki-san and Inoue Mao -chan are, as I described above, much more established than MatsuJun or Jin.

Back to this drama, Oomasa Aya - I havent seen this girl much, but as I remember, her first acting experience was as an extra in HYD back in 2007, and I saw her again in Mei-chan and Buzzer Beat (for only 2 eps in the later, because I can't stand Yamapi's emotionless face anymore). Her acting is... a bit plain and stiff. So I think it's natural why they let Sunako become supporting to Kyouhei.

So, in a way, she worries me as sunako...

Ehhhh...? That chick from Buzzer Beat as the Leading Lady? Nandeeehhh??? :crazy: :crazy: :crazy: (Lol, as if I've even read the manga.) But she hardly made an impression as YamaPi's li'l sis. Hope she delivers this time, though I'm not holding my breath. :whistling:

Great. They just HAD to go get that little moony-eyed wart from NEWS to play Kame's friend/whatever. Gaaahhh, the things I have to put up with just to slog through a Kamenashi dorama. Damn you Kame, damn you!!! *shakes fist*

Post by darkice7_12 » Dec 8th, '09, 22:07

I am really excited about this. I don't really care about the casting because everyone has their own vision of who would be perfect. I'll watch it because I'm curious about how the drama team will approach this subject matter. This is one of those wacky mangas that I wouldn't have expected anyone to make into a live-action. But now that they are making it, I am curious about how everything will look. Can't wait until January!! :D

anyway, Im so proud that people are okay with King TegoRock playing Yuki :w00t:

I am excited about this drama simply because I will probably see a satisfactory end to the story. The truth is in the manga nothing is ever really resolved even after 24 books. >_<

Don't count on that. It's a shoujo manga adaptation stuffed with JE boys. Which means that the focus will probably be mostly on the boys, Sunako's extreme character will be toned down,most of the scary and weird stuff from tha manga will be left out and we won't get a proper love story because nobody wants to enrage the fangirls.. In other words, even if the source material is good (and it is) they might change the story so much that you won't recognize it.

I will watch it anyway because I like the manga but I don't have high hopes for it.

Wow, I'm curious to see how they are going to show us the "down-gloomy-cracking-electricity-in-the-air" version of Sunako in live action.

oh man. actually I can't even imagine it could be made in live action. Lets just wait and see.

I hope they don't change the original storyline too much.

at least show us fans some chibi version ? too much to ask..? sigh...~

I don't think you should write off the main actress right away. Inoue Mao, Horikita Maki, and Haruka Ayase are just three relatively unknown actresses before they hit it big with HYD, Nobuta, and Sekachuu (respectively). In fact, I distinctly remember Maki playing an "annoying little sister" in "Densha Otoko" just before she played Nobuta.

Point conceded. :mrgreen:

(Hmmm. I actually liked Maki's character on Densha Otoko way more than her turns on Kurosagi or Hana Kimi. Or mebbe that's just me. :scratch: But yeah, Nobuta was the role of her career.)

watashiwachiaki

It's not difficult ;) once you find them you will find her in ep 1 already ;)



orichan

In fact many things have been solved since Volume 18, that's it, if you read the manga to the core of the story :)



nell123

I think you have resumed it quite well there, i am with you, i'll watch but don't expect much, who knows maybe they will suprise us for good............



7-go

As nell123 said i wouldn't count too much with many things we are familiar with in the manga.

Your first wish of not changing things too much is already down, to beguin with Sunako is not the main character and they have included that kid that is everywhere lately, Kato Seshiro in the cast and his character it is a big change on itself because there are no kids related to Sunako or her family in the drama.



TG4

You are right there, we know nothing or at least not too much of her then we can judge until we see, the same goes for the guy playing Ranmaru, he already has a possitive from me, he is keeping Ranmaru's dressing style from what was shown in Ousama no Brunch interview and that's good, turning himself into the character and not making the character be like himself is a good start.



I have already mentioned the casted kid up there but in case you have missed it the wiki page is updated. On one hand i am happy to have Noi around but finding that they have given aunty a name feels weird.

Also read that they have been filiming in Hokkaido (probably for the yuki onna chapter or something simmilar), training in fight...here http://tsuyaka.livejournal.com/45182.html . And seems they are using the Atadan and Yukan Club castle too.

I understand why lots of people worried about Aya taking up Sunako's role. She's pretty new in the whole acting business.

But I saw the Ousama no Brunch clip, and she's totally into character. It freaking funny :)

Here's the subbed vid on YT if you wanna watch -->

On another hand hurray for the tri-Johnny's. I dunno if Kame IS really the lead char. Maybe they're just using his popularity to draw crowds...
But double hurray for Kame as Kyohei :)))

@ londonsoul:

I hope I'm wrong too. Actually, I'm a bit hopeful now because I checked the wiki pages on the cast and the director. Except Kamenashi Kazuya, I don't really know much about the cast but the director has some really nice dramas in his resume. Based on that, this one could turn out good.

@ SP1CA:

Yup, she is. :-) I hope we get to see the full story between her and Takenaga. It was one of the funniest things in the anime.

i'm a little excited for the drama because of uchi and tegoshi yuya. but Kame is a huge turn-off for me so i don't know if i'm going be enjoying it as much as i would iwithout kame. i was hesitating about adding this drama to my to-watch list, but since i miss yuya quite a bit i guess i'll watch it.

Hmmm... I'm mostly trying to reserve judgement about the casting until I watch it but I do have to comment that while I have no problem with Kame as an actor, he no longer looks like a high school boy to me. But, well, it wouldn't be the first time someone obviously older played a teenager so what do I know...

I also agree with a number of other posters in that I really hope they don't tone down Sunako's morbid, misanthropic, and downright weird tendencies & obsessions too much in order to make her somehow more "acceptable" as a drama heroine. That would be pretty lame.

Having said all that, I'm actually looking forward to this quite a lot.
