Summary:
The Wallflower is about Sunako Nakahara, a girl who was called "ugly" by a boy, the first and only person to whom she confessed her love. This incident sparks a life change, and as a result Sunako shuns all forms of beauty, both in herself as well as in life. Concerned by her change for the worst, Sunako's aunt, the owner of a beautiful mansion where four very handsome students live, offers the guys free rent in her mansion if they can turn Sunako into a "perfect lady" (referred to in Japan as the titular Yamato Nadeshiko).

While the four of them manage to make Sunako physically beautiful enough to become a lady, the problem lies with her attitude and interests (which Sunako has no intention of changing). Up until the most recent release in the story, they've managed to convince Sunako's aunt that her niece is indeed a lady befitting the mansion in which they live (and prevent the rent from skyrocketing to triple the required amount). However, in reality, Sunako has not changed considerably.



In my opinion, I would love it if this were turned into a live action series. And yes I'm fully aware that the story can be some what compared to the popular series Nobuta wo Produce but I still think it would be a pretty interesting and fun live action.

So my question is, who would you cast for the live action of the Wallflower? For the characters:

Sunako Nakahara

The female lead, Sunako is often referred to as Ghost girl or Scary girl due to her dark presence. A lover of solitude, gore movies, anatomical dolls and objects that reflect the ugly side of life as she puts it, Sunako has locked herself away in a world of solitude due to a traumatic experience with her first love. She has especially mixed feelings about Kyouhei and as the storyline progresses their relationship becomes more solid and intimate.

Kyouhei Takano

He is the most popular of the foursome. He is very loud and bossy when it comes to his needs. He is a lover of food and can devour anything in seconds. One of his favorite foods is Sunako's fried shrimp. He was forced to leave home because all of the mobbing and harassment by his fans were taking a toll on his family. He loves to fight and even becomes a gang leader in the manga. He can't hold a job either, because he seems to be prone to sexual harassment. He has unsorted feelings for Sunako which he demonstrates by constantly provoking her rage.

Takenaga Oda

He comes from a very wealthy family and is quite serious in nature. He is the brain and logic of the group often trying out logical strategies to make Sunako become a lady. He is a book worm, who loves to study. This is evidenced by him having the highest grade point average out of all of the boarders. He has a love interest in Naie "Noi" Kasahara. But his shyness gets in the way when he wants to express his feelings. As the manga progresses he becomes more social and open about himself. He prefers Japanese-style formal wear.

Yukishijo "Yuki" Toyama

A shy character, he is sweet and has a very loving nature. He comes from a humble family and has two younger twin sibling who make an appearance in the manga. Yuki is the most innocent of all the characters, often crying and becoming scared when he enters Sunako's room. Due to his extremely girlish face Yuki is often forced to dress up as a girl, creating self esteem issues for him. He has a girlfriend who is only spoken of. In the story Yuki tries to make himself strong and have more confidence so as to not be scared as easily. But he is easily defeated by Sunako's extreme taste in decorations.

Ranmaru Morii

The playboy of the story. Ranmaru comes from a wealthy family and is an only son. He is very extroverted and a lover of older women. He has a very sexy nature and extremely high self esteem. He is often going out on dates with married women, provoking trouble. But he has a very good heart and loves his friends. Later on in the storyline he is set up in an arranged marriage date by his parents. But unwilling to get married to anyone he asks the guys to help him. But as he encounters the girl, mixed feelings arise inside him making him unsure of his playboy ways.

I'm also curious as to who you'd cast for:

Naie "Noi" Kasahara

She has an unbreakable love for Takenaga and is often questioning their relationship. She is very beautiful and kind. She is the first female friend that Sunako makes even though it is unwillingly. She has a very quick temper around Kyohei and the two are often found fighting.

DON'T HESITATE TO NAME SOME OTHER ACTORS YOU WOULD THINK WOULD FIT THE ROLES!

When I mean a live action drama, it's not limited to Japanese actors, you can name any Taiwanese, Korean, etc. SKIES THE LIMIT!

Personally for the four handsome guys I was thinking of casting some of the members from NewS or Fahrenheit!
I WANNA KNOW WHAT YOU THINK!
ps. DON'T BE AFRAID TO ADD SOME PICTURES!!

Well, Perfect Girl Evolution is one of my favourite mangas and I'm afraid they will screw it up.. but oh well... it's not like I can do anything about it if they have already decided to make a live action out of The Wallflower... so let's have fun with it!

Kame-kun for Kyouhei Takano
definitely!!! or at least for ranmaru



I'm not sure who to nominate for Takenaga Oda, so for now, it will be Miura Haruma



First person that came through my mind was Koike Teppei for Yukishijo "Yuki" Toyama



and for playboy Ranmaru Morii it would be fun if Shirota Yuu or Ikuta Toma played it!!



As for my dear Sunako chan, I don't think anyone is suitable, well, not that I can think of now...
I'll edit when I change my mind...

Then Maki Horikita as Naie "Noi" Kasahara, I'd like to see her with really long hair!



That's all for now

They'd probably make a Wallflower live-action LOL That's just how the film industry works.

I would love to see Maki with long hair. I'd really like to see her pull off the Noi-chan char.

As for the others... I really could care less. I just want to see the humor.
