TITLE: Yamada Tarou Monogatari (The Story of Tarou Yamada)
STARRING: Ninomiya Kazunari (Stand Up!!), Sakurai Sho (Heaven Cannot Wait 2; Kisarazu Cat's Eye)
OST: Happiness - Arashi
SUMMARY: 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. --TBS
SUBS: Stormy Team Subs

Just finished Yamada Tarou Monogatari the other day, and I wanted to share a review on it. I wrote this in the span of 3 days, and it's roughly 8 pages long in MS Word. :) Sorry for the length, but I can guarantee honesty in my opinions. :) X-Posted to yamada_tarou.

Spoilery Review follows! Go away if you haven't watched Yamada Tarou Monogatari! SPOILERS ABOUND.

OVERALL NON-SPOILERY REVIEW: Overall, Yamada Tarou Monogatari was a great experience. Not just because it had Sho, Nino and Ohno's maximum kawaii cameo at the end (although I'll admit that helped), but because of the overall good feeling you get at the end, and because you realize that maybe not everyone in the world is made of shit and there may be hope yet for the human race. I think I wouldn't be lying if I said it's one of the most entertaining and touching dramas I've ever watched. Although there is really no continuous plot from the first episode to the last one, the drama manages to make its 10-episode run cohesive and coherent. It's funny, all most of the characters are lovable, and the acting on Nino's part is really, really brilliant. It may not be the best drama there ever was, but it never failed to entertain and it never failed to show good morals. It was funny, and it was full of morals, but never preachy. Overall, I give Yamada Tarou Monogatari an 8.2/10. :)

Opinions are welcome if stated in a respectful manner. It's okay if you disagree with my points, but please don't flame me for it. xD Thanks for reading!

I suscribe to a monthly Japanese ladies magazine. The theme of this month's was Men We Like. Two of the guys picked were Nino and Sho. They "interviewed" them about their newest TV show, Yamada Taro Monogatari. And since I was in the mood to practice my Japanese, I translated the interview and scanned the pictures that went with it ^_^ It wasn't much of an interview, just Nino and Sho babbling on for two pages. Which is why we love them ^_^ I posted this in my private journal and a friend suggested I post it here as well. Enjoy!

Does anyone have El Presidente's "Without You" song that they could to share? It was used in Episode 4 when Taro was training to be Kuma-chan with Isogai & Takuya as well as when Takako was making cookies.

Here's a clip of it I found on YouTube if you need a refresher: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G6_C4WlCNoA

Thanks in advance!
