Stand Up


Stand Up!!: inappropriate, but funny ^^ (YAMAPI!)

Story: It's a comical story about four boys who find themselves the last virgins in school. Chie, a girl they knew 11 years ago who appears during the summer holiday. I can't put it in better words than this, "This story of summer - love, friendship, school, family, the hypocrisy of adults, complications of life, experience and failure is set in an everyday shopping district and shows the clumsiness of children who have developed a little later than their peers" --TBS. It's extreemly hilarious. But a warning there are very inappropriate references and scenes. There is also nudity. I still liked the drama and found it very interesting, but I have to warn everyone who is considering watching this drama.
Acting: Yamapi shows his talent even at this young age (but I expected his fantastic preformance). Nino also did great (he was such a shrimp though). Oguri Shun was fantastic as always also. Suzuki Anne, whom I hadn't seen before, did an amazing job also. I didn't like her character at first (I thought she was kind of annoying) but I grew to love her. Narimiya Hiroki's character was one of the best. He played it out perfectly. (but if you watch this look out for the episode he's whereing a purple shirt with a swastika on it in episode 3).
Music: I loved the music (especially the theme song). It really inhanced the drama.
Overall: I liked it alot. It was funny and kept me hooked to the screen. But like I said, it has inappropriate parts that I must warn you about because it may be the factor that has you not watching this drama.
