1. "Everyone has a 1st star!!" [Rating: 10/10]
We have all felt like ugly ducklings at sometime or another. This is a truly heart warming and meaningful drama that shows you that growing up isn't always easy, but with a teacher like Gasuke anything is possible! All you have to do is look to the sky and believe!! A drama I will never forget!! A outstanding and wonderful cast!! (P.S.- A definite Kleenex drama =)

I wish I could remember more about this show! What a wonderful cast. This show is 100 times more creative, compelling and interesting than anything on television in the states.

I loved this show. In fact, I made my entire Japanese Class watch it my sophomore year in high school because I loved it so much. American shows need to take a note or two from this one.
