[Discussion] Yankee-kun to Megane-chan

Post by noriblue » Feb 26th, '10, 19:51

Quoted from:
http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/20 ... ion-series

This year's 13th issue of Kodansha's Weekly Shonen Magazine has announced on Wednesday that a live-action television adaptation of Miki Yoshikawa's Yankee-kun to Megane-chan manga has been green-lit. Actor Hiroki Narimiya (Gokusen, Akihabara @ DEEP, NANA) will play the title "Yankee-kun" (delinquent) Daichi Shinagawa, while Riisa Naka (The Girl Who Leapt Through Time, Kami no Shizuku) will play the eyeglasses-wearing, overachieving "Megane-chan" or Hana Adachi. The television series will premiere on April 23.

In Yankee-kun to Megane-chan's story, class representative Hana goes all out to drag Daichi into school activities and their high school's social circles. Daichi learns that Hana was secretly a former delinquent herself, and that is why she tries so hard to reform Daichi as well.

The manga launched in Weekly Shonen Magazine in October of 2006, and the 16th compiled book volume will ship next month. The manga has also been published in Singapore under the English title Flunk Punk Rumble.

Hiroki Narimiya as Daichi Shinagawa
Riisa Naka as Hana Adachi.

-----------------------------------------------------------

I LOVE the manga. Always so funny!

I hope they'll make the live drama funny as well. I know most live dramas are usually not as funny as the mangas.

Looking forward to watching this and I hope someone/group will pick up this drama and sub it.

:wub:

I LOVE this manga. I cried laughing reading this drama at some point. Hiroki Narimiya is hella funny. He sure fits the role.

They just updated their official website: http://www.tbs.co.jp/yanmega/

It looks pretty good and some of the pics are funny just like the manga. It sucks that only Japan viewers can watch the video they posted up. :[

I am really looking forward to this drama: YanMega is one of the best comedy mangas around at the moment. The cast and the TBS site look really good.

I want to see the trailer too! Can't find it on Nico or Youtube yet... :glare:

It's been a while since I've seen a j-drama teenage character played by someone of Hiroki's age.
Still, hope it turns out okay. Some manga adaptations aren't as fun to watch as live action sometimes.

The manga is really hilarious and awesome so I really hope the drama will live up to it! I've been waiting with anticipation for this drama since the moment they announced it...I hope I'm not hyping it up to much for myself lol.
My first thought when I saw the casting was "Narimiya's perfect for Shinagawa!"...followed by "wait...how old is Narimiya now?" xD;;
But I think the cast will fit the characters really well! Haha, Narimiya as Shinagawa and Kanata as Izumi is like, my dream casting. xD
Hope the raws come out soon so I can see for myself!

Edit:
Watched the first ep! Much more toned down (not the all-out comedy I kinda expected), but still has that manga feel (in some parts, very much so). It actually focused a lot on character background and development, which I can appreciate since I feel that's something the manga REALLY lags behind with.
Narimiya is totally perfect as Shinagawa IMO. Looking forward to the next ep, as it seems to be all about Chiba-kun.

I just finished watching!

The cast is perfect! I really enjoyed it. Eventhough the comedy was toned down a bit just like what memichu said its still highly entertaining~
The toilet scene was different from what I had expected. LOL!
but still funny has hell seeing Nari's face like that.

I also love his imagination of them kissing. XDDDDD
Sooo cute~
And I can totally say that Nari and Riisa has chemistry~ :wub:

@memichu - I can't wait for next ep as well~
Chiba's arc was awesome!! :w00t:

Oh wow the first ep had pretty good premiere TV ratings 13.6%, even higher than previous shows premiere's in the same time slot/channel. It beat Ohitorisama 10.1%, Orthros no Inu 11.4%, Smile 11.7 and Love Shuffle 10.0%.

yeah, i got lucky :mrgreen:
watched ep1 on sunday. it was good enough i thought. i love the chemistry between yanki and megane. they look so good next togther but i did find Nari a little but old for being a highschooler. but as usual he is just SOOOO great in any role. i liked Risa from Ninkyo helper but i still had to google her name to know that she was there to begin with. she has got quiet a presence.
it did remind me of gokusen though. specially those gang fighting scenes and hurricane entry was very similar to gokusen and yankumi.
looking forward for next eps.

@miznagase -
that was an adorable scene~ but I guess that has to be kept to til the end.
@ZoddGuts - It also surpassed YamaNade with 12.1%
a fellow manga adaptation. ^^

@Issy - I love their chemistry as well... But I think that when Nari is with Riisa he doesn't really look that old.. but when he is with Kanata the age gap is obvious. XDDDDD
I expected that some scenes are gonna be compared with Gokusen but in the manga it gets different as the story progresses.. Its more because of Hana's background thats very similar with Yankumi. ^^

@reikaa - Im not sure about the fansubs.. but TLS are going to be doing the hard subs.
I think dramacrazy will eventually pick it up~
As soon as their poll is over~

I also hope there will be softsubs for this drama. Hardsubs are evil ;)

Hope too that it won't turn too much into gokusen clone, as gokusen has no surprise at all... the very same scenario is repeated over and over from an episode to another, from a season to another... so we really don't need yet another similar one!

Hmm, I guess I shouldn't have written this, but I guess I'm the only one who decided to drop this drama after the first episode. Nari was never my favorite from the start, I guess he's too old for a high school kid anyway. But I wanted to give it a shot, after he disappointed me in BM.

Please, don't throw rocks at me, I'm out^^

yankee-kun is not so yankee after all, eh? :lol
he's a good boy trying to be bad :P
i'm glad the boy left those stupid "friends" to be with yankee-kun and megane-chan :D
i'm starting to really like this series.
kinda cheesy, but it's all worth it because i get to watch sexy nari-kun :wub:

maybe when the series is over you can re-watch it and see if you'd end up liking it~ ^^

@miznagase - it was ne~
LOL~ he really isn't a yankee. Daichi and Hana have like reversed personalities. XDDDDD
I am liking what they did to the manga.. the spirit of it was still there eventhough they had injected a lot of drama. It still made me happy~ :lol

TV ratings Ep did 12.8, not a bad drop from 13.6. Compared to :

Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge
Ep One: 12.1
Ep Two: 09.3

Ohitorisama
Ep One: 10.1
Ep Two: 08.6

Orthros no Inu
Ep One: 11.4
Ep Two: 09.4

Smile
Ep One: 11.7
Ep Two: 10.2

All of which had bigger drops. I'll be interesting to see if Ep 3 stays above 12.0

I suppose that's possible, but if that's the case TimeLes hasn't released them yet. They're still releasing last season's dramas. I have them on my twitter feed and their last updates were "Okane ga nai ep08" and "Bloody Monday ep06" I don't know about the former, but the latter has 9 episodes. So they still have 3 episodes to go on Bloody Monday and probably 2 or so on the other so I imagine it will at least be another month or so before they start releasing YanMega.

I love TimeLes, they're magnificent subbers but if you like watching stuff as it airs then they're not the best subbing group for you.

Autumn 2009 - Ohitorisama - 8.4%
Summer 2009 - Orthros no Inu - 8.3
Spring 2009 - Smile - 12.3

So yeah~ Its doing really well! :w00t:

TimeLesSub is subbing it lol
i think theyre subbing it as each episode comes out . . .
I suppose that's possible, but if that's the case TimeLes hasn't released them yet. They're still releasing last season's dramas. I have them on my twitter feed and their last updates were "Okane ga nai ep08" and "Bloody Monday ep06" I don't know about the former, but the latter has 9 episodes. So they still have 3 episodes to go on Bloody Monday and probably 2 or so on the other so I imagine it will at least be another month or so before they start releasing YanMega.
I love TimeLes, they're magnificent subbers but if you like watching stuff as it airs then they're not the best subbing group for you.
are we sure that timelesssubs are subbing this drama? it's not even on their site

don't want to sound ungrateful but yes. if you want to follow a drama at the same time it airs and in the same season you need to look for other subbing team or know nihongo yourself.
all that said, i am still very gratefull for them subbing all these dramas. :salut:

I'm following Sunao Ni Narenakute, Tsuki no Koibito, Shinzanmono and Mother this season, and so far Yankee-kun & Megane-chan is the one I look forward to the most each week. I'm usually not a huge fan of school dramas but this one is totally worth watching!

Naka Riisa is adorable and Narimiya is hilarious and they have awesome chemistry. I think it was a wise choice to cast older/experienced actors in the role of high schoolers.

I'm not familiar with the manga so I totally didn't see the twist at the end of the first episode coming. It nearly blew my mind! XD Can't wait for the next episode!

@saayan- Aww~ that's great~
I really believe that they made the best casting choice since I really can't see anyone younger than Nari who can pull this off now~ XDDDDD
And yes~ their chemistry is awesome~ :wub:


Its Izumi's episode tonight... okay scratch that.. It's Kanata's episode tonight~
LOL! I'm so excited because its been a while since I've seen this kid anywhere~ XDDD

and for those who have read the manga:
Kagawa appears tonight! XDDDD
Though I wonder who they got as Kagawa~
I really hope he is a good actor too~

i really liked episode 4 :thumright:
most "yankee" people are sensitive and pure people who are scared to reveal their weaknesses, and that's what makes them pretty cute in my opinion :P
the conversation between yankee-kun and izumi-kun at the end was touching. they were able to disclose the fact that they don't know why they're living or what they want to do in the future, so they were brave enough to reveal their true thoughts and emotions.
i think many people can relate to what they were saying because life is so unpredictable and unfair in many circumstances.
narimiya-kun was hot in this episode as always :wub:

@miznagase - I agree with everything you said~ :lol

I really enjoyed this episode a lot!
though I thought that
It was Kagawa who was sporting the white hair... It was Izumi instead. LOL!
I would have preferred the brush up do for Kanata though~ :P
Anyway... I really enjoyed this episode~
and I can't wait for the next one... Daichi's love~

although in the manga...
in the end he was looking at a mechanical pencil when it was supposed to be just a pencil and not a mechanical one...
but yeah~ I think its going to be really interesting! :D

Nari & Riisa's chemistry is awesome~ :wub:

The ending was LOL!

Hey guys, just wondering. Is it still TLS subbing this? They haven't released first ep yet... or has there been another group at it and already subbed few eps?

Hey, thanks for the reply. Yeah I'm kind of aware of TLS status at the moment, it's the reason why I asked if there was any others. And it looks like there's no one else subbing it from my sources. Thanks though... I'll wait for TLS. :)

Viikii are doing the soft subs...
dramacrazy also decided before that they will be doing the hard subs for this drama... but so far I think they have only done 2 episodes.

I wish we could do something about it........like all of us(Non-japanese fans) go to japan and watch the episode there =D.

Though it would have been a better idea to release an anime, and then the drama, since an anime will probably catch a lot of people's attention more than a drama right?
