SYNOPSIS (PART 1)

     Eitoku academy is a prep school for rich and mighty. The school is controlled by a bratty and bully group F4. The  4 members of this group are all lone heirs to immense fortunes and unthinkable power.The leader of the group is Domyouji , a short tempered and violent person. During one of the bully sessions thier authority is challenged by a poor but kind girl-student Makino. They are annoyed and give her a red notice(an order for withdrawing from school). However she does not back down and fights back. Domyouji's annoyance with her soon turns into fascination and later a deep love when he inadvertantly ends up kissing her at a party. however she has a crush on Hanazawa rui, another member of the F4 and hates Domyouji with a passion . On the other hand Domyouji's manipulative mother is not happy about her son's choice and obsession for Makino.what follows is a very interesting lovestory.

SYNOPSIS (PART 2)

  The story starts after an year from part one . Domyouji is still in new york but he seems to be drifting away from Makino who keeps pinning for him. Worried Makino decides to travel to new york to see him only to find he has changed completely and has no interest in her any longer. Heartbroken she returns back and soon Domyouyji is back too but with a new pretty and unconventional girlfriend. He intends to marry her.To make matters worse Shigeru(the new girlfriend)who is crazy about domyouji decides to make best friends with Makino and discuss domyouyji with her all the time. Hanazawa rui can no longer control his feelings for Makino and decides to pursue and win Makino at all costs since it is obvious that Domyouji has no interest in her. What seems to become an odd love square becomes even stranger when uninterested Domyouji is not ready to let  Makino move on and treats her as his personal possesion. Even if he does not want her, he will not let anyone else have her and cares for her in an odd way. Everyone is now confused about his intentions and how makino will deal with it. What follows is an engrossing tale of deception , love and growing into a responsible adult.

AWESOME JOB Pooja! Really good synopsis and character analysis Clap

I have finally seen this Jdorama. Its an good-to-okay show with very good characterizations.

*************Spoilers ahead**********

Its got that "bad boy syndrome" in it too Ermm I wonder why I am so pissed by this sometimes that I can't control it Confused Okay they show a positive change in people after being in love but that is hard for me to take, since I have noticed that ppl don't change from the core. Their personality comes back after a while.. probably its not a permenant change [Okay, its a drama discussion so I better shut up on human dept. LOL LOL Tongue ] Then we have Rich guy-Poor girl romance. I mean.. quite cliches but the characterization is really good which sort of makes up for me. Domyouji/Makino has good chemistry although I prefer Rui/Makino Embarrassed Embarrassed I loved how they showed the loyalty and cool friendship B/w F4 and how they all understand each other so much despite having different personalities, [Esp the beating scene.. All F4 beating each other in front of apple posters LOL LOL LOL LMAOO That is one scene to watch.] And.. BTW was it just me or all of the F4 got better looking in the second season Confused LOL Tongue Even Yuki was looking great.

Now my take on characters:

Makino: Hats off to the writer for making Makino Tsukushi one of the STRONGEST characters in the whole series. Seriously, I am really really surprised that they made a female character so courageous and full of inner strength which can surpass that of males. Her strong endurance power during the EXTREME bullying by the whole school [throwing trash, snakes in locker, attempted rape, emptying water bucket at her, pouring wine at her in the party, etc etc] it was WAY beyond. Too much. But she didn't get her family into that details... I mean, when children are upset they do talk to their family.. but she didn't. She declared war against Domyouji single handedly [although Hanazawa Rui was helping her too, still punching a guy like Domyouji in front of everyone takes a LOT of guts]. Her pride in doing things herself e.g. taking jobs to support her family, dealing with horrible students herself despite having F3's support in second season is GREAT.

I don't know... I sort of fail to understand why she fell for Domyouji Confused Confused Confused I know he got all beaten up for her and waited for her to fall in love. She had Rui responding to her feelings so... I really can't understand WHY she chose Domyouji Confused Confused Maybe love really is blind Confused Tongue [One scene I was laughing madly: She was on date with Rui, she went to toilet. She was sitting in the toilet without locking the door and then DAAAAAAAAAAAAAAANNNNGGGGGGGG!! Rui came in!! LMAOOOOOO See her face! How HOW HOW embarrasing. LOL Rui: "At least lock your door in toilet" LMAOOOOOROFLROFLROFL Poor poor Makino wept afterwards in front of Rui and he was laughing hard. LMAOO that is one scene to watch.. I am still LOL LOL LOL on remembering that scene.]

She was strong in the 2nd season too but the dragged plot made the drama boring for me. I had to push myself to finish it. It was mature and good but really draggy which turns me off from the drama Ermm


(Will add the rest of the characters later Embarrassed ]
