One day in school Miku isn't feeling well and therefore has to sit down on the stairs, there seems to be no one who could help her, but suddenly someone gives her his hand and carries her to the nursery room. The moment their hands touch, she falls in love but because of her condition can't clearly see that person's face. Sometime later, Miku's parents decide to rent some of their empty rooms. One of her new flatmates is Souhei, who is at the same school as Miku is. Miku isn't very amazed about this new situation but slowly grows accustomed to it.
Miku met her destined person only once at school. He offered her help to get up when she felt bad and brought her to the schools nurse. Because she was so sick, she didn't see his face, but she remembers his warm hand... While looking for her destined person, her house gets turned upside down. Her father stops to work and to get money, they make their home into a boarding house. And this is where Souhei comes in. His parents divorced and since the house is close to school, he starts to live there with two students. At first Miku dislikes her life in a boarding house, but soon she gets to grab his hand and thinks she found her destined person...
The story is your lovely everyday shojo manga romance. Ordinary girl, school and lots of love-triangles...octons...or something like that...
Everybody likes everyone, but not at the right time. It's not exciting or anything, but I felt like that makes it so special. It also excluded your everyday drama. There are no evil witches who trick the guy into a kiss while the main girl is watching. Basically, this drama is only the story of a high school girl falling in love. And even though it sounds boring, I enjoyed watching it. No dramatic twists, just everyday life. It's good in-between some more dramatic movies and series.
What I liked most is that the main girl is 100% your everyday japanese girl. She is cute, afraid of being an outcast, falls in and out of love without shedding endless tears and she's not too beautiful or overdressed. I liked her, once I realized that she wasn't the beauty you normally get to see as an main actress.
So, after all this praising, why is it only 2 stars? The acting is bad, the script as well. Watching this sometimes made me feel seasick. The story itself is only good if you haven't watched a lot of other cheesy romance stories recently - it depends on your timing. The story is so simple, it could fit into one movie.
Even though I liked it, I have to admit it's not worth more than two stars. Similar to the chinese drama "My Prince", I really enjoyed it, but I guess that's only me.
Recommended to all the Johnnys fans out there (Two main boys from Johnnys, three side characters from Johnnys... What else do you wish for?) and to those who miss watching a simple high school love story that makes you feel warm and cozy without adding too much drama.
