Title: Yamada Taro Monogatari (山田太郎ものがたり) (Yamada Taro Story)
Genre: Comedy
Broadcast station: TBS
Broadcast period: July 6, 2007 - September 2007 (currently airing)
Theme song: "Happiness" by Arashi

Ninomiya Kazunari as Yamada Taro
Sakurai Sho as Mimura Takuya
Kikuchi Momoko as Yamada Ayako
Matsuoka Mitsuru as Yamada Kazuo
Oshinari Shugo as Sugiura Keichi
Fukiishi Kazue as Torii Kyoko
Otsuka Chihiro as Nakai Masami
Shibata Rie as Ikegami Maria
...etc etc

Arashi members Ninomiya Kazunari and Sakurai Sho star in this comedy series based on "Yamada Taro Monogatari" by mangaka Ai Morinaga. Ninomiya plays the title character, Taro Yamada, whose family lives in extreme poverty. But because of his looks, intelligence, and athleticism, others mistakenly believe that Taro comes from a prosperous family. In contrast, Sakurai plays Taro's best friend Takuya, who really is from a successful family and who often helps out Taro in various ways.

This is based on a hilarious manga of the same name - and from what's been aired so far, it lives up to it! The manga was completely crazy and ridiclous, and the drama doesn't skimp on it - it makes the whole plot even crazier. It's a bit different from the manga, but there's face expressions, over-reactions, crazy CG-ing - really, do you need me to say more? (Also there's Nino and Sho starring in this so for me, as a JE fangirl there was no choice but to watch this. Laughing )

The ratings don't lie! Nod

Haha I was much more excited for Hana Kimi before the season started, but somehow after watching both I'm liking Yamada Taro a lot more. It's just so satisfying to watch. Giggle

Oh, I heard Nino talking about this in an interview! It must've been old though, because he was saying that they were shooting it right then, but he wasn't going to give away a lot. He did mention the basics though. Nod (Like that both him and Sho are in it! Love )
It's too bad I won't get to watch this...
Oh well. Sneeze

This is the best high school drama out for the summer season for sure. Its cute, simple and fun. Acting is good and the characters are likeable for the most part(Takako I like sometimes. Her daydreams are HILARIOUS though). I like it. I like seeing Ninomiya in a non-serious role again. I thought he was going to get type-cast as a serious character after Letters From Iwo-Jima

It's over now~ ahh, I really did enjoy it beginning to end. Giggle I got attached to the characters, even the ones I thought were kinda dumb and annoying at first. Love

So who watched and finished it, and what do you think?
