great high school series
This show is extremely nostalgic, which is weird because i went to high school in America and this show takes place in Japan (and is in Japanese). The traditions are different, but the feelings seem to be universal. I was impressed at how well the show presents believable and realistic high school kids. The kids look like high school kids and have real high school kid problems. Watch this show, then watch an episode of 90210 to get an idea!
Like all Japanese drama, this show can be incredibly sappy (endless freeze frames as the two destined lovers pass on different trains and all the standard stock shots), but go with it and you won't be disappointed.
