Hey guys!

After intensive searcing, I finally managed to find the lyrics to the Seishun amigo song! :D I've got them off a website in someones blog (i thought I bookmarked the link so I could give credits to the person, but I did the wrong site.. :doh: ) SO, these were not done by me..credits to whomever did them..

Seishun Amigo .. Youthful friends

(K)
My mobile phone has started to ring
A wave of anxiety surges up my chest
Stay calm, mi amigo!

(Y)
The situation doesn't look good! Help me~~!!
Those guys are nearly onto me!
I don't think I'm going to pull through this, mi amigo!

(Both)
The call breaks off like two people being torn apart

Si we have always been the two of us
We've never lost on our own territory...or something like that
Si the city we've yearned for since a long time ago
Believing as we lived

For some reason, in my mind is the scene of the day we set out
The beautiful sky, embracing everything

(K)
Finally found my way to that darkened road
The guy's lying on the ground
I didn't make it in time. Sorry.

(Y)
I've taken care of him
I couldn't keep the promise we made that day of fighting together
But the fact you came makes me very happy

(Both)
Trembling hands clasped stronger together

Si the moment we arrived in this town
We would be able to handle everything, or so we believed
Si we parted with our home to pursue a greater dream
Laughing as we lived

Nothing has changed that future that
The two of us were chasing after
We still dream of it


Arent they nice? :) I Really love this song.. the only thing is :

After reading the lyrics and seeing the ending where one little piggy dies..I can't help but think those rumours you were talking about are gonna be true. I thought it would be Akira who dies though, coz in the ending its the ditzy pig who's hurt. But argh argh..I'm getting depressed just thinking about it. PLEASE let this only be a nasty rumour..

About the Shuji dying rumor
It'll be kinda weird if it's true, ne? I mean... the drama itself doesn't really give me that kind of feel ^^;; Maybe it'll develop later, but as of now, it doesn't seem that tragic and foreboding.
It'll be interesting... but um... I dunno, I love the drama so far so I'll watch anything LOL XDD I'm so eager to see how everything turns out!! :D

Just finished watching episode 5 and found that it asked a lot of tough questions.
Should a person pretend to be something they are not so other people can like him/her? Or a person should be loved for who he/she really is?

Before the double date, Shuji kept coaching Nobuta how to act and what to say. He did the same thing for Makoto. But, in the aquarium, Nobuta and Makoto finally revealed who they truly are. And, it wasn't a pretty sight. The disappointment in the eyes.

On the other hand, it's amazing to see Shuji's dad accepted his mom as how she is. Even though, she was never around to be "the wife," he cared for her all the same. It was touching to see him on the bridge waiting for his wife's plane to fly by. Shuji should learn a thing or two from his dad.

The hunt for the mysterious/stalker/life messer continues...so after watchin ep5, here are my thoughts..The mask is about to come off, I hope..hehe
(donn read if u haven't seen ep5)
ok, from ep4, Bando can be eliminated which leaves Mariko.But with ep5, the new girl who appears at the end, I am also putting her on the list cus that birthmark right next to her chin looked kinda familiar. When someone was taking pictures of Shinji and Nobuta on the rooftop, that girl had a birthmark...so now Mariko almost off the list and new girl 99% probability of her being the culprit..if it turns out to be true, then we are in for the betrayal of new friendship senario..hehe(get close pretending to be friends, then finally betray)

I agree. That new girl is suspicious. If I only see her face a bit closer, maybe I can see that little mole on her chin... or not. Somehow, I never believe that Mariko is the evil one, I might not like her that much, even feel sorry for her a bit of how Shuji really thinks of her and how he pretends to be all in love with her but in reality, he has no time for love.
Shuji is changing every episode, though slowly, but he is. These type of drama, there's always a lesson to be learn in the end.

Now to Akira, haha, the poor guy.
He realizes his love for Nobuta, now he stalks her. It was cute when he tried to put his arms around her, but they couldn't move. Then he got all jealous because she was going on a date with someone else. Well, at least in the end he got to hold her hand.

hm... I don't know how to put hidden text...
I'll try to not write any spoilers... =/

I really like this drama. At first I saw it just because of Kamenashi, and I thought it was a comedy, like many other manga-based dramas (don't know if it is manga-based though). But I think it is a rather serious and maybe sad drama, sometimes it seems dark to me. The mood in the end of each episode... I mean, death, Shuji's words when first episode ends, black birds and other things. :crazy:

That mysterious stalkers may not just be one person. Maybe there's two or three...?

I actually think that Kamenashi is a good actor, he's not all the same in his dramas, e.g. he's a total different person in Gokusen 2. In Nobuta wo Produce, Shuji isn't a very sympathic person (though he has the main cast), you'll like Akira more, cause Akira's more honest with his feelings and actings, but as somebody else mentioned before, Shuji's changing a little in every episode. He's realizing what kind of person he is, and doesn't like it.

Sigh... have to wait till next week for ep 6. :cry:

Just watched episode 5! Some thoughts as plot thickens.... (Spoilers for episode 5)
I don't know if Mariko is the mysterious troublemaker, but I think she is definitely not what she seems. I wonder if she is actually like Shuji, where popularity is just a game and she is going out with Shuji for the same reason he is? I just thought it was weird when they were eating lunch, and when she made Shuji buy her a drink, as if she was trying to get rid of him for a second. Her experssion changes and it was strange how she snatched the something from their bento too.

She also said at the end of the date "Kyou wa tanoshihkatta desu." Exactly what Shuji told Nobuta to say at the end of the date, even Shuji kinda looked at her funny when she said it.. (I wonder if she heard them talking?) Nobuta said it at the wrong time of the date, but it's funny that Mariko remembered it.

For me, I can't tell if the new girl could be the one, but it's a possiblity! Keep your friends close, but your enemies closer!
I really want to read the book! I think this drama seems light-hearted, but I have a feeling the storyline might take a turn towards the end.

Where have you been? :lol Seriously, Yamapi (Akira) is from the jboy band group NewS, and Kame (Shuji) is from Kat-Tun, another boyband. They are like mega famous.

shuji's the one narrating, how could he die? except if he left a diary/journal or somethin'

I agree that episode 5 is a must see, if only to see
Shuji and Akira playing a girl and a guy on a date. It was so hilarious!
Akira tried to "take advantage" of Shuji. Shuji tried to deflect Akira advances, but ended up accepting it. Then, their air kissed. I was rolling on floor laughing :D

I just watched the PV for the theme song, it's the first PV I've seen of Johnnys Entertainment and I have to say they really should fire the choreographer because the dancing was just weird. But anyway I have a question, is the boy in the PV (the main dancing kid) the same boy who plays.. Shuji's little brother?

edit: just looked on the wiki and he is in johnnys jrs so it's probably him.

I've heard about the groups, but never listened to them. I'm not really a fan of jpop. i've been listening to korean for the past year.

Just finished watching epi 5. My favorite epi so far. Now, I just have to wait for the subs to come out so I can clear some of my misunderstandings.

About the mysterious stalker/girl...
I've always thought Mariko was the crazy, stalker one since that's how dramas like to be. The always seemingly nice, pretty one, the one you'd least likely to expect almost always turn out to be the culprit. At first I didn't really believe it'd be her, but I definitely get a weird vibe from her after watching the drama more. For example, remember in epi 4 when she found out that Nobuta had written Shuji's b-day on her planner? Her face expression and how they zoomed into her eyes are is definitely very questionable. But then again, in epi 5 it wouldn't make sense if she was the one that took the pictures. It's possible but it'd be weird if you were on a date with someone and somehow was able to take a picture of the other couple without them knowing.

The new girl is suspicious as well. New twist to the story then if it was really her. I guess we'll just have to wait and see.
That rumour about Shuji
OMG! Could it really be true that he could die? Is that why in the ending theme song you see one of the piggie die? Is that a foreshadow? Gosh, I hope not otherwise I'll.... :cry:

Ah..... found out how to write hidden text =)
I wonder if they always have the same clothes. Mariko is wearing black socks and black shoes, and that girl who vandalised the birthday cake had black shoes and socks. But the one that took pic of Shuji and Nobuta had white socks and gym shoes.

Don't know why I try so hard to find out who the stalker girl is. They will probably show who it is later on. Or maybe they won't, so we'll never find out..... No need to put energy on it :glare:

about that
from what i see, it's just an act Mariko did to match with Shuji request (she said she'll act like a bad date couple to make nobuta looks good in a scene before the date scene)
and oh, the girl in the end of this episode definitely the bad one. pretty sure she behind all the things happen in every episode. the appearance is matched! plus, the way Shuji said that nobuta finally make friend sounds so dark .. like something bad gonna happen coz of this. also the symbolic they put in the last shot .. i mean the crow .. it must means something, don't you think?

now that would be pretty messed up if the man nobuta helped really is her grandfather. besides, i tried my best to find a mole on her chin and couldn't. sooooo...
we're just gonna have to keep puzzling. :P
btw, love our jealous akira! :wub: :lol and the date demonstration by shuuji and akira was off the hook funny. :lol great episode!

I'm rooting for Akira (Yamashita)! He was really funny and extremely nice in this ep! Shuji, though at times a bit cool... He's such a hypocrite. Akira is waaay better~

Especially when shuji and akira were learning Nobuta how to do if he touched her on the date. :lol
Akira dies? That will be to sad :cry: Hope it's not true..

ayaya , about the bad girl's identity
After seeing this eps , I've remarked somethings and it changes all of my thinking about the bad girl . I used to think Mariko is the "Evilness" in all this , but when I saw the scene when Nobuta and Shuuji were taken photo by an inconnu , and they did a close zoom of the girl's mouth , I saw that !!! there was a grain of beauty on her chin !!!!! yaaa , And coincidenly (?!) the mysterious girl at the end has IT to if you observe her carefully !!!!!!!!!!!! O_O omomomo , can't believe it , then Mariko is not the one , so ?? Nobuta is in danger cuz she's making friend with the "Elvil" girl ....
and YamaPi is so cute in this eps , ayayayay :D luve when he
don't want Shuuji experience on Nobuta ... , but he can't even do it in place , ayaya
in his bedroom and thinking about what he's done to Nobuta and getting out of himself , akak so funny
Call "Nobuta", "Nobuta" in sleeping xD kawaiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii

In episode 5, does anybody notice how frequently the guys bump into things? I couldn't help noticing how often they are "ouching."

At the end of the FIRST EPISODE, you could already tell that something bad was going to happen and the video where the GREEN PIGGIE dies, I was confused. But when I read the FORUM and the LYRICS, it kinda clinched it (In my own opinion only) that one of them (I think SHUJI coz' the way the VIOLET PIGGIE moves like AKIRA in the hallway scene) is going to die or going to be hurt. :-( :-(

I hope nothing bad happens. :cry: But what SHUJI said at the end of the first episode "That in the future something truly dark and deep, there was real evilness that we had to fight" and the MYSTERIOUS GIRL wrote "DIE" in NOBUTA'S desk kinda freaks me out. :pale: :pale:

Yeah, that part kinda freaked me out too. We know it's getting closer because of that crow at the end of episode 5 too...

But...
I think some is going to happen to Shujii because on the Japanese BBS board on the official site, someone in Japan wrote that they read the book and felt sorry for Shuji's character in the end.

I actually got a hold of the book myself, but haven't attempted to read it yet! Need to find my kanji dictionary first! :P

I hope nothing bad happens. :cry: But what SHUJI said at the end of the first episode "That in the future something truly dark and deep, there was real evilness that we had to fight" and the MYSTERIOUS GIRL wrote "DIE" in NOBUTA'S desk kinda freaks me out. :pale: :pale:
yeah, kinda confuse by the way Violet piggie moves. but i think it's been said before that in special episode there's explanation about these 2 piggie and green one is akira, violet one is shuji (i read somewhere around here, not sure which thread it is)

Noooooo :cry: :cry: What is this I am reading about Shuji!!!???? :cry: :cry: I feel so upset reading these generalizations about the ending. But I dont think the Japanese would carelessly tossed such a twist unlike some of the kdramas I know. I'll be sad, but if it is done right, then I think, I can accept it.

Anyway Ive got a question about episode 5.
I dont really get what's the content of the flyers...is it really that big of an impact for nobuta to get some dirty looks from the other students? They were just pictures and details about her date with shittaka, what's the big deal?

i was confused too!! i think the deal was that she was
playing with men, and this time her target was shittaka. even though shittaka was an idiot, i felt kinda sorry for him. haha especially near the end when he was playing with the soft toy he bought on their date.
episode five was fantastic~ nobuta wo produce just keeps getting better and better!! and yes, the shuujixakira scene was a MAJOR classic. keep it coming, boys!!

i love akira the stalker in open-neck skanky purple shirt =D that scene in the ambulance was soooo sweet~~ i kind of get the feelign that
nobuta likes shuuji. the bit when the two couples part on the double date, she was watching mariko and shuuji walk off arm in arm, and something about her expression...i think they might throw in a akiraxnobutaxshuuji love triangle.

I love the nobuta powaaaa thingy... :lol

I get the feeling that shuuji is the one who's changing, not nobuta... :-)

If I'm not mistaken, nobuta said that she didn't really want to be popular...

Episode 5 was the best so far!!! Yamapi screaming Nobuta and rolling around was hillarious. :D
I definetly think the new girl is the "mystery evil girl". She has the beauty mark, the skirt, andddd the crow flew across the screen at the end of the episode, while they were walking away.

But i was confused on what shuuji meant by saying he didn't want to loose. To whom?

I can't wait to see episode 6!

Yeah, i noticed that too.. I got a feeling that
he's talking about that new "evil girl".. Coz he mentioned that he doesn't want to lose over those who can't stand seeing other people being happy.. So my guess is, that evil girl is the one who want to destroy Nobuta's happiness...
We'll see how it goes on the next episode. I can't wait till Saturday!!!

episode 5 really did rocked!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Nobuta's date was sooo adorable.........I just wanted to pinch his cheeks and go, "aigoo, baby".

but darn it......the date ended somewhat abruptly and he was eh~

and as for the evil girl...........I'm hoping it's not Mariko because I actually like her character. :roll

Yea, the new girl is definitely the crazy stalker.
I changed my mind about Mariko completely after epi 5. She went out of her way to make herself look bad so Nobuta would look good. Plus she took the rumours very graciously. There's a good friend.
So now...question is, why did the new girl do it?
I don't think it's because she likes Shuji since she should pick on Mariko instead. It's probably some deep rooted hate or jealousy from a long time ago.
I couldn't help wonder about the scene when..
Akira was under his cover screaming "Nobuta!" like a crazed lunatic. Then his "dad" or whoever he is that lives with Akira was all like he knew Akira was doing something bad....by himself. :whistling: *coughslikemasturbatingcoughs* :lol
And oh yea...I'll kill the producers if they kill Shuji in the drama. :x

New girl is Nobuta's new "friend". The one that thanked her for helping her grandpa. Something's DEFINITELY not right about her.

It doesn't make sense if Shuji just dies. What would he die of? He looks like he's in perfectly good health. Hmm. Accident? I wish this drama would stay the light-hearted and funny kind that it is so far. It seems like many of these light-hearted dramas always have some sort of tragedy happening within them nowadays (like H2)

ah, I see what you mean.
since most of know that the evil girl has been stalking shuji & co., (especially now with her taking pictures :glare: :cussing: ), she could have seen the ojisan and Nobuta scene....thus using "you saved my grandfather" as an excuse to get close to Kotani.
ah, suka suka...wagata~ :salut:

Damm u guys think a lot about this! :P I never would have guessed about :
The new girl being the 'evil' one. I thought it was so sweet that Nobuta FINALLY made a girl friend that I was weepy!! Its going to be too heart breaking if she turns out to be against her.

Also, I have to rant a bit, sorry! I LOVED the scenes where :
Akira stops Shuji from touching Nobuta, then finds that he can't move his hand to touch her himself..hehehehe..that was sooo good! Plus at home where he gets all embarassed about having held her hand and brought it to his face. :D
About Shuji :
What exactly did he get so mad about? He was bugged at her for not wanting to be popular right? Is that all? And at the end..not wanting to lose to someone who cant be happy for others..could that mean himself? Like he wasnt happy for Nobuta if she wasnt going to want to be popular..i.e. change herself?
And lastly, Nobuta :
She wants to pass the ball back to them? I.e. be on an even footing with everyone? Give and take? Oh oh, and I THINK she might like Shuji..like someone said earlier..the way she was looking at him walking away with Mariko and even later when she looked at him they'd do a close-up of his face.. Aah, I sense the drama getting darker in the future. :-(

i think it was because
he couldn't stop himself from getting 'persuaded' by the rumours on the paper. i thought it was something like that, like he actually believed them, which is why later on the vice-principle was like "it's just a piece of paper", and then in the end he crumples it up and throws it at her.

the drama seems pretty dark already. haha i think it was like
she wanted to be able to do things for herself as well, instead of always having them force her to do it. that's kind of what she means by always the two of them throwing balls at her. and then when she says she wants to return them, i think she means that she wants to do things for them as well. haha it's kinda hard to figure out...i don't even know if i'm right - this drama is so deep!!

this drama is great...but it gets darker every ep....and i think something REALLY bad is going to happen...so it won't always be light hearted...

about akira...
i think there's some dark story behind him...like the piggy ending,akira was beatten up by some other pigs...so i think that theres a sotry about him later(plus his a son of a rich man..mmm..so i think there's a reason why he's staying in the tofu shop,i don't buy the story he said to shuji in the 1st ep

i really like the scene where shuji and akira was acting like nobuta and her date(forgot his name)...so kawaii

my REAL fave was when akira took nobuta's hand and touch his face..ahhhhhhh.....

there will be love tringle late...i'm sure...

yeah... the drama is kind of deep.. you get so confused sometimes :glare:
I think if Shuji really dies in the end, maybe he does that to save someone..? I mean, he's changing a lot. In the beginning he has no real friends. He's on good foot with everybody, but he doesn't really care for them (and they don't care for him either). Then he makes two friends. He changes his values in life. Maybe they will be that important for him that he'll stand up for them, even risk his life...? Just a little thought I have.

I know that I will cry if he really dies in the end... :cry:

Hey Unkei! I see u again in another thread! :D I think that makes sense ^ ..although why Shuji would think like that is beyond me..especially when he's the one who's with Nobuku all the time so he should KNOW what shes like!! I got a bit angry with him in that scene.. :roll

What special episode????

If you watched carefully the ending song, the VIOLET PIGGIE had his arms stretched out and walking across the hallway like a drunk would do. Then the GREEN PIGGIE met him and they went inside the classroom. The VIOLET PIGGIE went and stood up on the desk of AKIRA in the series near the window. So from that scene, you could tell that the VIOLET PIGGIE is AKIRA not the other way around. :scratch: :scratch: :scratch: (That's my opinion only.)

I've been thinking too hard about this series. I expected this series to be fun and light. But I can't help watching it. It just shows that it has the mark of a good series where it let's you believe in one thing and then suddenly turn 180 degrees (I'm getting way too philosophical for a TV series). Let's just hope that whatever happens (good or bad) in the end, it would be worthwhile. :-) :-) :-)

There's a Nobuta wo produce eps00 (search the torrent), with like interviews, games and little about the drama-making, with Kame and Yamapi.

There you can see that the green piggie is Akira and the violet one is Shuji. Don't understand why the ending theme ends like that. But maybe the piggie isn't dead, just seriously hurt.... :roll

Somebody uploaded the theme song "Seishun Amigo" (really nice by the way), and the file is called [PV] Shuuji to Akira - ......

I just wonder, what does PV mean? Music video or something?

It's a term used for Japanese music videos and stands for Promotional Video.

this drams is really great even though i didn't expect it to be.

i don't know how many people did this but i was soooo curious about the ending that i went online to search for the synopsis of the book (yes it comes after a book). i discovered about the story of the book, but since so many things have been changed from the book, i could not find any answers in the end.

how the book ends
shuji successfully turns the "nobuta" into a very popular guy. however, just when "nobuta" started to become popular, his own mask began to fail him. after some particular incident, shuuji changes from the most loved guy to the most hated guy in this school. finally the book ends by shuuji transfering to a different school in order to reestablish his "mask" in a different env't. so his innate character has not chaged at all.
modification in setting from the book
first, "nobuta" in the book is a fat and ugly GUY with a very good heart, only is being jeapodized because of his looks.

second, there is not akira in the book (pleaes correct me if i am wrong about this.) so i don't have any idea how akira is going to fit into the drama
i'm sure there are some loves developing here and there since we alredy saw one doing so in the newest episode. But i am still hoping for a love between shuuji and nobuta.

finally
i don't think anyone would die in this serie. if someone did, that will shock the hell out of me, but i seriously doubt it.

At first I only watched this because of Kame and Yamapi, since I kinda needed another series to watch to fill in the gaps between The Death of Love and Hana Yori Dango, lol. At first when I watched the first two or three eps I found this series incredibly boring, that and I was fast-forwarding parts since I hate watching people getting bullied. But as I watched the second and third time (yes, this is my way of killing time :P ), I found it to be more and more good, and for some odd reason, it made me feel freakishly depressed.

This is a sorta bittersweet series, IMO. You'll find some parts heartwarming, and yet some parts just make kinda tears you apart. Although some parts just totally doesn't make any sense. --; Like the part in the haunted house in where they turn around to take photos for the three people, only to find them disappeared, or vanished. :blink

As for this series basing off of a book in where Shuji dies, yes it's true, but Shuji may not necessarily die since the whole script had some changes in it. For example, Nobuta was supposed to be a guy, and Akira didn't even exist in the book. So yeah...

Ehehehe, I can't wait for ep 6 because Akira runs away from home and moves in with Shuji... :mrgreen:

(donn read if u haven't seen ep5)
ok, from ep4, Bando can be eliminated which leaves Mariko.But with ep5, the new girl who appears at the end, I am also putting her on the list cus that birthmark right next to her chin looked kinda familiar. When someone was taking pictures of Shinji and Nobuta on the rooftop, that girl had a birthmark...so now Mariko almost off the list and new girl 99% probability of her being the culprit..if it turns out to be true, then we are in for the betrayal of new friendship senario..hehe(get close pretending to be friends, then finally betray)
Just watched episode 5! Some thoughts as plot thickens.... (Spoilers for episode 5)
I don't know if Mariko is the mysterious troublemaker, but I think she is definitely not what she seems. I wonder if she is actually like Shuji, where popularity is just a game and she is going out with Shuji for the same reason he is? I just thought it was weird when they were eating lunch, and when she made Shuji buy her a drink, as if she was trying to get rid of him for a second. Her experssion changes and it was strange how she snatched the something from their bento too.

She also said at the end of the date "Kyou wa tanoshihkatta desu." Exactly what Shuji told Nobuta to say at the end of the date, even Shuji kinda looked at her funny when she said it.. (I wonder if she heard them talking?) Nobuta said it at the wrong time of the date, but it's funny that Mariko remembered it.

For me, I can't tell if the new girl could be the one, but it's a possiblity! Keep your friends close, but your enemies closer!
I really want to read the book! I think this drama seems light-hearted, but I have a feeling the storyline might take a turn towards the end.

nope. i don't think mariko is the evil mastermind. at least that's what it is in the book. but i heard the drama doesn't follow the book very much.

and when mariko said "Kyou wa tanoshihkatta desu.", it was mariko who actually taught shuji this line. at the start of episode 5, shuiji proposed to her a double date. And he later on he told mariko that her appearance might make nobuta seem of lower standards. so mariko is a very nice girl. she is willing to make herself turn into a 'bad girl' to make nobuta look better than her in front of the guy who likes nobuta. and shuiji asked her what is the most impt thing to make a date successful? and mariko taught him the "Kyou wa tanoshihkatta desu." she did not eavesdrop them!

i'm not a fan of mariko, but just clearing up some misunderstandings here... :lol

At first when I watched the first two or three eps I found this series incredibly boring, that and I was fast-forwarding parts since I hate watching people getting bullied. But as I watched the second and third time (yes, this is my way of killing time :P ), I found it to be more and more good, and for some odd reason, it made me feel freakishly depressed.

This is a sorta bittersweet series, IMO. You'll find some parts heartwarming, and yet some parts just make kinda tears you apart. Although some parts just totally doesn't make any sense. --; Like the part in the haunted house in where they turn around to take photos for the three people, only to find them disappeared, or vanished. :blink

As for this series basing off of a book in where Shuji dies, yes it's true, but Shuji may not necessarily die since the whole script had some changes in it. For example, Nobuta was supposed to be a guy, and Akira didn't even exist in the book. So yeah...

Ehehehe, I can't wait for ep 6 because Akira runs away from home and moves in with Shuji... :mrgreen:

i can't wait for epi 6 too !! gosh the major spoiler really ruined my day. when i first clicked the box.. i was :goggle: :crazy: :pale:

i hope that the script ending will be entirely different from the book. *prays*


i uploaded a Seishun Amigo HD perf for a friend, decided not to waste the link...
here it is.

okay.. darnit darnit.. enough of the killings..

i doubt the producers of the show will go as far as offing the characters..

somebody getting beat up is as far as it would go.. i'm betting my obsession to yamapi on that. :P

guys!! go to youtube.com and type in these guys names and you're sure to find a lot of nice vids.. :-) you can also find the making of the PV there.

Seira : thanks for the bits of info on the book. Its interesting to see the differences, and after reading that, I think its really clear that the drama has been changed A LOT. So I think all rumours should just be forgotten about.. :-)

Crazylazy_cheif : you're right, its a very bittersweet kind of drama. It makes you laugh, it makes u cry, but cry in a good sense... you dont cry coz the situations impossible, you cry coz u feel for the characters so much. Also, every episode (so far, atleast) has ended off positively..which means you can have a good day after it. :P

Esthyun : Thanks for the clip!! I'm going to download it now! :)

Littlemissfab : And thank you for the site! ;) Will check it out!

(donn read if u haven't seen ep5)
ok, from ep4, Bando can be eliminated which leaves Mariko.But with ep5, the new girl who appears at the end, I am also putting her on the list cus that birthmark right next to her chin looked kinda familiar. When someone was taking pictures of Shinji and Nobuta on the rooftop, that girl had a birthmark...so now Mariko almost off the list and new girl 99% probability of her being the culprit..if it turns out to be true, then we are in for the betrayal of new friendship senario..hehe(get close pretending to be friends, then finally betray)
Just watched episode 5! Some thoughts as plot thickens.... (Spoilers for episode 5)
I don't know if Mariko is the mysterious troublemaker, but I think she is definitely not what she seems. I wonder if she is actually like Shuji, where popularity is just a game and she is going out with Shuji for the same reason he is? I just thought it was weird when they were eating lunch, and when she made Shuji buy her a drink, as if she was trying to get rid of him for a second. Her experssion changes and it was strange how she snatched the something from their bento too.

She also said at the end of the date "Kyou wa tanoshihkatta desu." Exactly what Shuji told Nobuta to say at the end of the date, even Shuji kinda looked at her funny when she said it.. (I wonder if she heard them talking?) Nobuta said it at the wrong time of the date, but it's funny that Mariko remembered it.

For me, I can't tell if the new girl could be the one, but it's a possiblity! Keep your friends close, but your enemies closer!
I think you handled Mariko's attitude wrong. She was acting like that at a date because she wanted to make Nobuta look good in front of the other guy. That's why she gave the little piece sign towards Shuji when he left the table.

After that, rumors got started saying she didn't know how to cook, that could've hurt her popularity. However, she said that as long as Shuji knows the truth, it's fine. I don't think she's going out with him just for popularity.

I'm not saying she can't be the 'evil' girl, but as of right now, I don't think that.
