Nobuta wo Produce Screen Caps

Kiritani Shuji played by Kamenashi Kazuya (Suppli, Gokusen 2) is the most popular boy in school because he acts cool, always says the right thing, plays life as if it’s a game. Kusano Akira played by Yamashita Tomohisa (Proposal Daisakusen, Kurosagi) is the one person in school he avoids because Akira can actually get him to be honest with himself. When a new transfer student, Kotani Nobuko played by Horikita Maki (Hana Kimi, Teppan Shoujo Akane!!) starts to get bullied Akira convinces Shuji that they should produce Nobuko transforming her from the most hated to the most popular. Toda Erika (HYD, Liar Game) is Uehara Mariko the most popular girl in school, and the one who everyone believes is Shuji’s girlfriend. Ukaji Takashi (Hana Kimi) plays Shuiji’s father. Okada Yoshinori (Hana Kimi, Sexy Voice and Robo) plays the homeroom teacher. Natsuki Mari (First Kiss) plays the vice principal, who gives Shuiji and Nobuta a chance to wish. Daito Shunsuke (Hana Kimi) plays a classmate as does Furuhara Yasuhisa (Hana Kimi).

The story opens on a rooftop and much of the series takes place up there with clear views of the sky and skyline. When Akira and Shuji are up on the school roof discussing whether to produce Nobuko, Shuji says it's the people in power up in those towers that decide what's good and then sell it. Shuji also ponders if somesome small can change the world. When Shuji first meets Nobuko by the river where the willow used to be he wonders if she's a willow fairy, I thought that they made her up to look like the ghost from the Ring movies.

The complete drama including the subtitled special batch torrent file can be downloaded here. It's very well seeded and should download pretty well. Almost 30,000 downloads of just the batch file so you can tell that it's a very popular show.

Doesn't she look like the ghost from the Ring?

I think you're better off not knowing Japanese when you're watching this show. The way Akira talks is so irritating that I have a hard time sitting through the scenes with him in it.
