This is the japanese drama adaptation of Hayakawa Tomoko's manga "Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge" also known as "Perfect Girl Evolution" as well as "The wallflower" There is also an Anime based on the manga series, which has been dubbed.
First of all, I read the manga by Hayakawa Tomoko, but to soon find out that it's status was ongoing and I was in love with it, so I decided to watch anime. Then to find out that the anime's ending, wasn't a wrap it was more of a...well, lets just say it definitely could of gone a lot better, with at least Sunako solving her problems, or getting with someone *hint**hint*, so now here I am watching the Japanese drama adaptation, which was very different but I feel it was much better then the anime as well as, it was HILARIOUS!!!
The basic plot line is about Sunako Nakahara a Horror loving, Unfashionable, way beyond Goth, girl who doesn't care about her looks one bit, she just loves all the blood, guts and gore and HATES bright things! However, she wasn't always like this. What brought this on? 2 years ago (manga, four years in drama) she confessed to her first love, but his response wasn't expected "I'm sorry I don't like ugly girls". That was the day that Sunako's world came crashing down. She felt alone, and slowly became evasive to the world, she talked to no one, soon enough all her friends disappeared and all she had left was to talk to was Hiroshi a doll that was used for a science class, and shows the muscles and veins. Soon enough she became who she was today, no longer the girl who gave a damn about her looks. Now, a request from her aunt who owns a mansion in which 4 GORGEOUS boys live in, ask the boys (high school students) to make her niece into a lovely lady, or else there already expensive rent, will be tripled, but if she turns into a lady (preferably a traditional japanese lady, which is called a yamato nadeshiko)! Sunako Nakahara, now has to live in a mansion with these BRIGHT creatures: Kyouhei Takano:Beautiful, Violent, loves food. Takenaga Oda: Shy, Voice of reason, heir of a wealthy family. Yukinojo Toyama: Gentle, Cute, innocent. Lastly, Ranmaru Morii: Playboy, wealthy, confident. these four boys set out to make Sunako a lady.

Okay, so the manga is still ongoing, but is very humorous and definitely worth reading, but don't expect the story to progress fast, since Kyouhei and Sunako's love is such a hard thing to notice!
This is the original work, and notice that on the manga cover your can see Sunako is the cartoon looking character, she often turns into that in the manga because well 1.its hilarious 2.it's to hide in a way.
Now, for the anime, you can see how truly pretty Sunako is, but she hates herself and thinks she's ugly, thanks to that useless boy!
Also in the anime, my favourite voice actor, who plays Tamaki in Ouran high School Host Club, Vic Mignona, plays Takenaga.
The anime is funny, but honestly, it doesn't progress at all, and also Sunako often goes in her cartoon form quite a lot =P theres no helping it, is there.
Anyways my next drama is Ouran high School Host Club, and when the extravagant challenge comes out, I am hoping to do a blog post on harry potter and the deathly hallows part 2, as well as the skip beat anime.
'til next time, Adieu, Syanora.
Arigato, gosamaisu (however you spell it, its thank you very much) for reading :)
