Title: 野ブタ。をプロデュース / Nobuta. Wo Produce
Genre: Drama/ Comedy/ School
Episodes: 10
Broadcast Period: 2005-10-15 to 2005-12-17
Theme Song: Shuji to Akira - Seishun Amigo
Cast: Official Site

Kiritani Shuji is the popular guy who gets along with everyone. Shuji has a daily ritual of touching a certain willow tree for good luck. One day, he is surprised to find out that his willow tree was uprooted and in it's place, he finds a freaky looking girl telling him that some people took the tree somewhere else to be spotted. She joked that she was planning to hang herself from that tree. Scared, Shuji runs away.

Things heat up when a new student comes to school, Shuji is shocked to find out that the new student was the freaky girl he saw the day his willow tree disappeared. Her name is Kotani Nobuko, a girl who has no self confidence at all and is content at being made fun of and bullied in school.

Shuji and Akira, an annoying guy Shuji used to find hard to get along with, come to an accord that in order to make use of their "youth", they will "produce" Nobuko as the next popular girl.

This drama is really fun and interesting to watch, but they didn't explain a lot of things which makes the ending rather incomplete. I don't really like Shuuji because he's just a little fake. On the other hand, Akira is really cool, "kon kon" has definitely become his signature gesture, and the "nobuta power enter" is the best pose ever, especially when done by Horikita Maki, she's so cute! Love "Akira shock" is also another classic lol. Laughing

The story is quite okay, nothing special, and as I mentioned earlier they didn't explain why some of the things happened in this drama is possible. I think they are probably explained in the novel, well maybe someone who read the book can explain what's the background of this drama because the plot is a little surreal to me.

I give this drama 7/10, if you like idols drama this is definitely what you're looking for. Shuuji and Akira is from KAT-TUN and NEWS, while Horikita Maki is an emerging young actress who is really cute and pretty. Nod

i agree, i really like this drama too. originally i watched it because of horikita maki. but then the story caught me and i ended up watching the entire series in the space of half a day Embarassed

one of the scenes i really liked was akira teaching nobuta about "nobuta power"...
also when he was following nobuta and in the aquarium on the escalators, he goes: akira shock!! and then falls down going akira down!!

it was a good series, id give it 8/10 Smile

I've watched many Japan dramas last year.
For me, Nobuta wo Produce is the second place of all.
(I think the best one is Tokyo Friends. Giggle )
Not only the three main actors but also the others perform well.
In addition, what I like more is the whole story, of course, besides the imcomplete ending. Confused
I really appreciate the adapter.

The plot of the story is actually quite simple: Two guys want to make one girl popular.

Well, even though the main plot is quite straightforward, you get to see how Nobuta change from a girl without self confidence to a girl everyone likes. Then there's side story that tells you more about the life of Shuji and Akira, and how each of them, including their classmates, grow to be a better person as they move along. Smile

Horikita Maki honestly look quite ugly in some of the scenes, I don't think she's cute when I first watch this drama, but later I watch Densha Otoko and I know she looks really good when she's not Nobuta. That's probably a good thing, it shows that she's very successful at portraying Nobuta as a character.

btw, I updated the first post with a sypnosis, kaorumorite totally abandoned this topic. No

P.S. Nobuta literally means wild pig, or boar, in this case it's a female boar. Laughing

Last night I was searching for some dramas or movies to watch and I remembered this thread and how I wanted to check out this series, so I searched for it~

I must say, I am glad I did Giggle It's really interesting to me. I have only seen a couple episodes but I already love it. Nobuta, haha I thought she was going to be real hardxcore ugly when they were spying on her in the teachers lounge~ But I was stupid and didn't even come to think of that it could be the girl at the willow tree~ haha.

I totally LOVE this drama!! at first I was watching it for the sake of yamapi (I love him to death!), but then, I got hook up on the story. Its relatively different from other school dramas, this one has a lot of "meanings" inside.

after watching the first episode, fell in love with kamenashi too, but I totally love yamapi in playing akira. such a adorable geek!! haha, a really interesting character. akira can be really stupid and really serious too, that's what I like about him.

throughout the drama, there were a lot of touching episodes. the ending was great too and how can we forget the theme song? Nod I love it so much that I bought both verisons of Seishun Amigo.

if you haven't seen this drama yet, I really encourage you to watch it!

i absolutely loved this dorama too! I am a complete fan of kamenashi so i was totally paying attention to him at first but nobuta and akira are just so lovable! Somehow now I can't get the image of the geeky akira out of my head whenever I see yamapi though... XD; ahahaha Giggle tamori was making fun of him about that too on MS Tongue

anyways, as fun as this dorama is, there is a lot of meaning behind it that you can take from it imo~ Strongest one that reached me was the values of friendship and faith Smile The strong bond between the three of them was just so touching~

i've watched each episode about 3-4x now haha Smile
