Perfect Girl Evolution

I finally watched the first episode of the J-drama Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge, which is based on one of my all-time favorite manga series, Tomoko Hayakawa's The Wallflower. For those of you unfamiliar with the series, it's about a horror-obsessed Japanese schoolgirl named Sunako and her housemates, four incredibly handsome boys constantly trying (and constantly failing) to transform Sunako into a "Yamato Nadeshiko"--the ladylike ideal of Japanese womanhood--in exchange for free rent.

Judging by the first hour, my hopes are not high. The plot was all over the place and the lead actress played Sunako as a sobbing, squeaky mess (a far cry from her portrayal in the book). Still, I laughed out loud at least three times, the actors were all very pretty, and things seemed to be looking up towards the end, so I think I'll give it another shot.
