Finished wathcing Yamada Taro Monogatari.Yamada Taro, a freshman on a scholarship at Ichinomiya Private Senior High School, is high-achieving, strikingly handsome, and truly athletic and seems perfect. But he is actually extremely poor. The story humorously portrays Taro, who tackles problems that occur because of his poverty, and his six younger brothers and sisters.
This story is one that I really enjoyed. In fact, I marathoned it for 2 days and decided that this is a keeper. I love the flow of the story. The drama and the comedy were very tastefully and creatively done. Plus, the kids were adorable.
The main stars were from ARASHI. Sakurai Sho ( Mimura) and Ninomiya Kazunari ( Yamada Tarou) they were adorable. I really was never interested in ARASHI except for Jun but lately watching Nino, I fell in love with his acting ability and sweet face. Sho was sophisticated and cool,and he was just right for the role. I think the girl they had this time was adorable and did so well.
What surprised me about the series was the father, Kazuo who was played by Matsuoka Mitsuru who was also a singer. He looks too young to be a father of a college age kid. ( and he’s hot) hehe. ^_^
I liked the series. That’s about what I can say about it. Its a great feel good series. If you like ARASHI and this kind of drama. Watch it
