Kaibutsu-kun pleasantly surprised me. It's not an outstanding J-drama, but everything around it seems special in it's own way. Ohno makes such a great Kaibutsu-brat, that I sometimes even got annoyed by his character. He plays a little prince, that is arrogant and stupid and doesn't care about others. So his father sends him to the human world. There he meets another brat who lives alone with his sister (I love how they always let the parents disappear, to make it easier for the kids to do stupid stuff XD) and always lies (because, appareantly he has no parents! *loL*). They become friends and Kaibutsu-kun learns many new things because of that two kids. The little human-brat even starts to be a good boy. YAY for Kaibutsu-brat teaching Human-brat.

What I really liked about that drama was the Musik, the costumes and I adore the way, dracula talks. His -zaimasu at the end of every sentence makes it sound so...elegant and intelligent. I love that. And I LOVE Franken for the ending. Like, it really made this drama lovely.

I also enjoyed, that they didn't have a "black" and a "white" side, where good fights the evil. Demorina and Demokin might be the evil people in this one, but I never really felt like I hated them. Demorina was way too beautiful to hate her and Demokin was just...predictable.

What I didn't like was, that Kaibutsu always had to save the kids, because they ran into the evil. At their own will. It reminded me a little bit of Sailor Moon. The evil side has to collect energy - human desire in this case - to wake up the glorious leader. And at the end of every episode, the main character comes to destroy that plan. So much like Sailor Moon, just that they don't save mankind as a whole, instead they just save the two human kids.

I got stuck somewhere in the middle, because it repeated itself. So it's nothing you can sit through in one night. But I still missed the show after some time, so it definitely had it's impact. One episode every week might just be right for Kaibutsu-kun. So no masterpiece, but very good!

Both are about the heir to the throne of another world who lives on Earth with a group of guardians, friends, disguised as humans. When the forces of evil try to steal human energy by manipulating human emotions, the protagonist must release his or her powers to protect humanity. In both series the gender of the guardians reflects the gender of the heir. Both series are also named after its protagonist.

This drama probably was based on manga, style was close to anime and I liked it. Childish story with basic rules of morality and behaviour never gets old.

I was so angry when I heard Ohno was going to appear in this drama, but in the end I loved it! The effects are not great and the story is indeed for kids, but Ohno's acting and the other actors compensates for all that. I'm so gonna miss it!

The final episode of Ohno Satoshi’s (Arashi leader) drama “Kaibutsu-kun” ended on June 12th.

This drama was based on a manga series from more than 40 years ago. It’s a comedy about a prince and his monster companions, Dracula, Werewolf, and Frankenstein, and their journey into the human world.

Since the content of the manga was originally for little kids, this drama had low expectations from TV journalists. However, Ohno and the co-stars’ acting, fascinated not only kids but also adults. Hence, the overall average rating came in at 13.7%, which was much higher than initially anticipated.

As a result, Kaibutsu-kun is coming back as a movie, which is targeted for a release in the summer of 2011!

In the final episode, Matsumoto Jun (Arashi member) appeared in the drama as a guest star. In addition, it’s been revealed that other Arashi members will make appearances in the upcoming movie.
