I Would say this drama is inspired on the popular manga Hana-Kimi by Hisaya Nakayo since it doesn’t really fallow the manga in everything but the main plot is there.

This is the story about a girl who lives in America,  Ashiya Mizuki who admires Sano Izumi’s high jump, but when Sano get an injury after saving a girl who was Mizuki, he can’t do the high jump again so feeling guilty Mizuki decides to ga back to japan to Sano’s all boys school to make him jump again. But the thing is Mizuki has to go as a boy.

After she enters the school a lot of crazy things happens, but she will never give up even if  Sano is not what she thought, he is mean and rude to her at first but then becomes friends and maybe something else? Mizuki makes a lot of friends and one of them, Nakatsu who falls for her almost immediately but he struggles thinking she’s a man.

This drama has some weird characters, craziness and funny events.

    this is the best Japanese move I’ve ever seen. Maki is totally cute. Shun is very cool. While Toma is funny…… I can’t stop watching this movie. I like the character of Nanba Minami and Sekime. I also love Kayashima.

    but the live action series is sort’a diff. from the manga (i guezzzz) well…. its more fun in the live action.
    the ridiculous attitude of the dorm heads and nakatsu makes the show more funny
