Kyoichi Suzuki is an average college student in his junior year. Although he's not in one of the top universities, he's satisfied with his college life studying architecture. Kyoichi left home and is finally on his own, living in a beat-up apartment in Tokyo. However, this apartment building is home to some out-of-the-ordinary residents, who are always bugging Kyoichi. His next-door neighbor hits Kyoichi up for a loan when he finds out that Kyoichi just got paid. His other next- door neighbor who works at a nightclub, always calls Kyoichi, demanding him to come pick her up, because she's so drunk. Other than that, Kyoichi is satisfied with his normal life, until he meets a girl one day...

Kyoichi comes home from his part-time job as a night-time security guard. He returns to his room to find a girl sleeping on his bed-a girl he has never seen before. She looks a bit older than Kyoichi, and is quite beautiful. Kyoichi can't believe his eyes.

Kyoichi closes the door, and goes outside to the entrance of the apartment, to make sure he's in the right apartment and room. There's no mistake. He returns inside...but the girl is gone.There's nobody in his room. Was it just his imagination? Was he hallucinating? Kyoichi can't understand what just happened.

Later, he discovers that something is missing from his grocery bag-the Chinese noodles he was looking forward to eating are gone...

This is how Kyoichi first meets Surumi Kataoka. After they meet, Surumi continues living in Kyoichi's room.

She points to an apartment visible from Kyoichi's room, and says that the guy living there dumped her for another girl. Surumi says that she's waiting to check out the girl she was dumped for. Kyoichi doesn't know if he ought to believe her or not.

All Kyoichi knows is that while Surumi is such a charming girl, the expression on her face is sad at times.

Kyoichi is not that disappointed about sharing his room with a cute girl. He starts to think that this lifestyle may go on forever, until one day, Surumi suddenly disappears-just like the day she suddenly appeared. All she leaves for Kyoichi are unanswered questions.

1. Light-hearted and extreme enjoyable [Rating: 9/10]
I have to admit I chose this dorama to watch primarily for Takizawa Hideaki, whom I am the hugest fan of because of the singing duo, Tackey & Tsubasa. I don't have high hopes for it, nor did I expect to love it as much as I do.

The dorama told the story of a chance meeting between Kyoichi, a 21-year-old architecture student and Surumi, a mysterious 26-year-old that somehow appeared in his life. Not surprisingly, Kyoichi fell in love with her although her heart (initially) was elsewhere, and the story revolved around them finding out more about their feelings for each other and the people around them, eventually leading up to Kyoichi having the courage to go after the one he loved.

The story is a very simple one, and cliche, admittedly. However, there was added elements that made this dorama an original one on its own. The plot (although simple) was well-developed and each character was well-explored. I was attached to every single one of the characters - there was not true evil villian, the only "villianous" bits were the very humanistically selfish actions of certain people (Surumi, Shimada, Keiko) that one can surprisingly relate to.

The supporting characters were a delightful bunch, from Kyoichi's nosy neighbours to his lazy security-guard partner, his timid teacher and his other love interest, Keiko.

Nothing Academy award superb about the acting, but everyone gave good performances that made the dorama a very very enjoyable watch. Hasegawa Kyoko is very pretty and pulled off the bratty Surumi well enough. Although she's older than Takki, they somewhat matched because at least she is shorter than him. >.<;; Their chemistry weren't electrifying or anything of that sort, but there was a bittersweetness to it that I really like, particularly when Kyoichi's feelings were obviously unrequited.

I certainly must commend Takki here (not because I love him and therefore biased) but I really could see why people are making the Kimura Takuya comparisms. I was honestly skeptical about his acting, but I can now safely say that Takki is honestly a good actor. He brought a life and a sparkle to Kyoichi that made Kyoichi a wonderful character. I think with the wrong acting and perception applied, Kyoichi would come off as whiny and pathetically stupid rather than the somewhat freshly innocent, lovable and adorably confused yet silly character that was portrayed by Takki. Being that he is only 23, there is definite room for improvement and I can't wait to see his future works. =)

2. SO borning! [Rating: 5/10]
Thank god I made it through this drama! I went through a brief moment of weakness where I considered not finishing it, thus making it the first drama I wouldn�ft complete.

The narration, especially in the beginning of the drama, really annoyed me and turned me off right away. I mean, Kyon would start with �gThis is my girlfriend�c�h and we would see the girl, see her dump him, and then he would say �gThis was my girlfriend, another hurdle I had to pass�h or whatever.

This drama is beyond my comprehension. How does Surumi crawl through Kyon�fs window when he�fs on the third floor? Why does Honda-san�fs girlfriend suddenly suspect him without warning? What is the purpose of episode 5-9 when everything could have been wrapped up within four epis or less?

Even the comic relief (the two men living in the same apartment as Kyon) was pathetic. Takki is a terrible actor, and he makes it worse by playing stupid, pathetic characters that are always dragged around by the overbearing women in the drama. Hasegawa Kyoko CAN act, but her character was so flakey I couldn�ft even appreciate the skill that went into producing such a character.

Mind you, I found the women in the drama good and solid. Hasegawa Kyoko, Konishi Manami, and Maya Miki are grand actresses and even Shimatani Hitomi pulled through. But neither could save this drama in my eyes. It was too whimsy and BORING. So boring, that it was almost painful to watch at times. Initially I planned to give this drama a 4/10, but I think I�fll give it a 5/10 because the ending provided decent closure and wasn�ft as bad as the rest of the drama.

Other than Hasegawa�fs wardrobe, which was awesome, this drama is completely forgettable.

3. KYON GA DAISUKI!!!!!!! [Rating: 9/10]
Just finished watching BokuMado yesterday... up to eps 11... and I must say, it's one of the MOST CUTEST doramas I've ever watched. It's so enjoyable to watch, and it's so light and humorous. The scenes were shot in such a way that really communicates and enhances the mood and character of the whole dorama so well.

The character development is absolutely fabulous too, I absolutely love Takki playing Suzuki Kyouichi (Kyon). And HaseKyo as Kataoka Surumi, they're a perfect-10 perfect match for each other!

Some say the story is very standard and common. I must agree that the plot isn't rocket science. But one thing that the plot isn't is FLAT. The plot is NOT flat at all. There's always little bits of unexpected surprises in every episode. Very spontaneous, just like Surumi herself.

To all who are just looking for a light romantic comedy that will make you laugh, smile, and cry tears of laughter and joy, I would really recommend this dorama. And yes, I also think Takki looks his best in this dorama, even better than Taiyou no Kisetsu. Kyon is by far, the best character he had ever played.

Thumbs up for this dorama. I cried tears of joy during the cute cute cute ending!!!! It's truly the cutest ending I've ever seen! xD xD xD Oh no.... stop me before i go on and on and on about this dorama!

4. Icihiban (other than Overtime) [Rating: 10/10]
AWESOME!! SIMPLY AWESOME!! This is a quirky and sweet story with two very lovable characters (Kyon & Surumi) which also add to viewers' visual feast. Just as most Jap drama are, there are a few unbelievable scenes in the show but they do not spoil the flavour of the whole show. You hear Kyon's inner voice in this drama throughout which brings you into his struggles in his world and makes the development of the plot even more touching to viewers. He slowly finds courage to fight for unconventional love. There are some very touching scenes too when one's love could never be requitted despite her patience. The funny neighbours also add to the whole enjoyment. The plot may not be something extraordinary but the couple's chemistry and how the story echoes love paradox makes you can't help but fall in love with it. I was sad that the drama ended because I wanted to see so much more :-( A vcd for keepsake for sure! It's a show capable to make you cry while laugh at the same time. RECOMMENDED FOR THOSE WHO LIKE ROMANCE COMEDY! BUT not for people who prefer traditional or tragic love stories or can't stand younger guy & older woman relationships.

5. Not a bad love story [Rating: 8/10]
If you are a helpless romantic, this drama is for you. It follows along similar patterns of other love stories, but it is still a bit refreshing and updated. It's about a guy who likes a girl but goes through all sorts of events before he realizes he needs to show some backbone and go after her. I like the characters in this drama and how they are all different from each other. Each character seem to serve a purpose and that purpose stays clear throughout.
I think Kyoko is great in here, and so is Takki. They wanted to portray a guy that's going through growing pains over love and they really did a good job showing it. The drama didn't make Takki seem immature and their love for each other without grounds. Plus, the show managed to stay away from excessive drama or overly dramatic scenes to bring the story more life without sacrificing plot and the interest of viewers, good job!

As much as I like Tackey, not even he helped me watch this series without fast-forwarding the majority of the episodes.
I really liked Kyon and some of the other characters but I couldn't stand Surumi.
*Possible Spoilers Ahead*
Her selfish and cowardly behavior got on my nerves, first she is infatuated with Honda-san, then she falls for Kyon but the moment someone told her that they didn't approve of her having a relationship with him, she runs away! If she really liked him, she would've faced their wrath and tried to make her relationship work. But no, she had to go and make herself the victim even though she freaking deserved to be scorned.
Ugh, by the time I finished watching it I really felt like hitting a puppy. But at least there were good things like Tackey, Tackey showering, Tackey wearing only a towel, Tackey wearing a suit and Tackey... and some other things. xD

7. Very Captivating [Rating: 10/10]
I was captivated from beginning to end. I greatly recommend this series. Awesome cast. The most hilarious part of the series is that I kept wondering, from the few shots of the window where she always climbed to enter the apartment, it was just impossible without a ladder. Overall, it was fun and engaging. Kyoko's character was very interesting.

As an aspiring writer, I can only wish I'll be able to write something that can captivate and grab the audience from start to finish without them letting go like what the series did.

Now, I can vote.

Very nice story, not the drama of the year indeed... but still, I had a good time watching it.

But Miki Maya and Leo Morimoto are the only real actors, who left me a good memory. Without them, despite its scenario somewhat original, this drama would be really mediocre.

Hideaki Takizawa plays "perfectly" the typical boring student with bleached hair that we can see in many dramas, his acting isn't worth having a leading role.

Like the title of my review says, this drama was just barely watchable. The supposeting cast is more interesting than the main characters and the story has nothing special about it. It started well, but grew soft and preditcable by episode #3. Were the producers of this show trying to make it seem like an updated version of Long Vacation? I guess one could argue that, but if that is the case, they fell way short of the mark.

This is a drama that Takizawa Hideaki fans will adore. He plays a college student named Kyon who moves away from his bustling home to live in an apartment. However one day after his night shift at work, he finds a woman sleeping on his bed. Thinking that he's hallucinating, he quickly leaves the room and comes back a few minutes later only to find that the woman is gone. He dubs her his Madonna.

Later on in the series, the viewers find out the reason why Hasegawa Kyoko's character frequents Kyon's place. The story proceeds at a pretty decent pace, but can be slow to some. The chemistry between the two main leads was only so-so, but it was nice since it seemed to be more about friendship than love. Takizawa Hideaki plays a really adorable character who often finds himself to be Hasegawa Kyoko's lap dog.

There are many similarities between this and 'Long Vacation' although the latter has a much stronger plot. I would highly recommend this drama to Takky fans and people who want to watch a light romantic series with some comedy. It's cute.
2. Comments by Kitsuchi [Rating: 9/10]
I started watching this dorama because of Takki. He's a really good actor, though I have to confess that I got mad at him sometimes. I've seen Hasegawa Kyoko (as Surumi) before acting on Dragon Zakura, but I didn't pay much attention to her then. But this time, as one of the main characters, she showed me that she's a good actor as well. She played really well.

I liked the plot of this dorama. It was sweet and sometimes confusing though.. Almost at the end, you get scared a bit for how it's going to end, but by watching the end, you get relieved and start smiling of the cutesy.
This dorama is funny, cute, sad.. I liked it very much. You should have wathed it ^_^.

A trifling relationship dorama about a young girl who mysteriously appears at the doorstep of young male college student. The now-to-be expected horrible acting of Tackey was enough to ruin the experience for me. His completely uncharismatic performance and typical whimpering male role is wholly unsatisfying and difficult to watch. Moreover, Kyoko Hasegawa's annoying character compounded this dorama's implausiblity. Takizawa is horribly skilled as an actor and his lack of talent is patently obvious. Fans of good acting need to steer clear of his performances! The second dorama I could not finish.

Kyon = kawaii, Surumi = bijin .... ^^ I like this series a lot. It's amusing how Kyon can't help but give in to Surumi everytime. I secretly admire Surumi's character and want to be like her. Heh. And I love her hair in this show. The other characters are pretty quirky and interesting too, as is the dialogue. I like the places where they shot this show, it doesn't look like a bustling city but it's still very modern and pretty. Also, it's amusing how every place seems to be easily reached by running or walking. Takki runs everywhere~

Finished it in 2 days... Surumi was really cute man guess any guy would have fell for her. Got to say Hasegawa brought out the best of Surumi in this show. My heart goes out to Takki who has to do her bidding everytime in the show though any normal guy would do the same cos' she's just too cute....Plot was predictable but which of us wouldn't wan to see a happy ending yah?
People complain that the endings r predictable but people complain too when they dun see a happy ending...

I really wanted to like this drama. The first episode really made me laugh, but then after that, I have no idea what happened. I stopped after the third episode because the leading lady's character was such a flake that I couldn't stand it. It wasn't her oblivious attitude that made me want to slap her. It was the fact that she used people like dishrags, and then got angry when said dishrags decided to break away from all of the crap that she had going on. Just annoying...

Very sweeet...Feel good dorama.I think the makers of this dorama intentionally implies some obvious similarities with Long Vacation. Origanally wanted to rate it 7 becoz were dissapointed with the lack of "ummph" for the supposedly climax scene (takki eyes+kiss lacks passion...starting to doubt his "LURUS"ness. Yoshitsune mana leh bengkok-bengkok :( nak nangis ler nih). Can't deny the very cuddly+baka Kyon and the bubbly+hot Surumi their extra marks though.

Very very sweet drama!! ^_^ I enjoyed it very much. Light hearted, fun and doesn't take itself to seriously... Hasegawa Kyoko is very very beautiful in this show, and she did a good acting job as the eccentric, fun loving but emotionally confused Kataoka Surumi. Takky was great as wee as Kyo. The soundtrack of this drama is also very good indeed, from the theme song to several instrumental pieces used in the drama. Overall, Highly recommended!!!~~

Simply a masterpiece! The chemistry between the main actors is fantastic, and each episode is different from the other. Boku Dake no Madonna goes through all different kinds of feelings, and the viewer will feel them all.

If you are into plot, don't watch this, if you are into quirky conversation & character development, it's a must-see. And if you are into Tackey, collect this! I thnk that's how jdrama has a special place in my heart, its colloquial dialogue always captivates me & very few other country's produce can match up. I enjoyed the journey with the two characters tremendously. Very kawaii cast too. One of the best romance comedy!!

A definite winner! It's WAY more original and not just a Long Vacation ripoff as some of the commentators here say. Sure it's got nearly the same situation, but the characters here have personalities entirely their own. Kyoko isn't that sexy, and Takky is more of an unsure young thing, but that's precisely the drawing point - their chemistry is more unlikely to draw sparks of fun, yet it does! You won't be disappointed!

Takizawa and Hasegawa looked perfect for eachother, but the script was a real letdown. Some parts progressed too slowly. Other than that, it's alright. A lighthearted romantic comedy. I don't think I can stand seeing Takki playing another character with a depressing background.

Last two episodes were the best. Only compliment I can give Surumi is about her clothing. It's very pretty. Kyon is such a cutie.

The story is loveable and I love Kyoko, she's got a great smile! Besides that...it felt really awkard at first. After digesting a couple of episodes you can sort of attempt to forget about her nonchalantly climbing through his window for the sake of the story. I fear that without that catalyst the rest of the story really doesn't have anything else worth watching...besides Kyoko's beautiful face.

Really light-hearted and funny. Lots of wacky characters with Tackey (Kyoichi/"Kyon") serving as the straight-man. His character is a little dumb and gets pushed around a lot by everyone, but he's likeable. Didn't really like Kyoko Hasegawa's character, she was selfish and bratty. It's not the deepest drama, and it's a bit cliched, but all in all, just a good amusing drama.

Wah~! Kyon was adorable. I actually didn't like Surumi that much, but I think Hasegawa Kyoko was great. Very charming and cute. I like the supporting characters a lot too.
I think the drama was kind of boring sometimes, but it has some very entertaining moments too.

An offbeat romance with a few twists that keep things interesting. Towards the end it got a little generic. I felt like it could have been a few episodes shorter. Still, worth watching for Hasegawa Kyoko alone. She's excellent and Surumi's a great character. She comes off as so adorable...you understand why Kyon's willing to do anything to make her smile.

Love Haseagwa Kyoko. One of the prettiest actresses around. She infuses this drama with spunk and makes it interesting to watch. Takizawa as her younger soulmate is adorable and his angst in the drama very heartfelt. The supporting cast is good too, and nobody that you really want to hate. All in all, a very pleasant and enjoyable drama to watch.

Average. The scenario was very interesting at the beginning as you try to figure out the story of the young woman, then after you figured it out there's not much left apart from an average romantic comedy.
Hasegawa Kyoko plays well and her character is fun to watch but the boy (Takizawa Hideaki) is obviously just here to show his pretty face.

I just totally love this show! It's totally addictive with Tackey looking absolutely GORGEOUS and i love all the 3 actress, they're all beautiful! This show somehow reminded me of 'Long Vacation' perhaps it's the chemistry btw Kyon & Surumi. Anyway, this show is Hilarious! Tackey's role is like every girl's dream boyfriend. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Great new drama!!! Reminds me a lot of Long Vacation (if you pay close attention, the music, the end of the intro, etc. are all similiar to Long Vacation, not to mention the whole concept of "sweet summer vacation" mentioned here). The actors are all excellent portraying their role.

Damn, Surumi, make your decision already, :).

Nice. I'm not a big fan of Takizawa Hideaki. The drama could've been better without him IMHO. Surprisingly, Shimatani Hitomi was quite good in it. I love her music, but didn't know she could act. Kyoko is good as always.

The side stories are, somewhat, lacking and needs more meat. Not a bad drama, but could've been a lot better.

Very fun, never got bored watching it!!! Good acting for an enjoyable love story. Often made me remember Strawberry On the Shortcake. But I can't give a 10 because the script isn't so original and very limited. The good acting hides the lack of originality but it has to be mentioned.
Good song! nannnaaa no umi de... tu tu tu

very, very entertaining. and takki's sexy ass is also good in portraying his character. it's so him. kyoko's character is somewhat eh, but she played it well. other characters like mr. writer, mute guy, bar lady and chief security's pretty good. i didn't like takki's emo girlfriend. overall, pretty laid back drama to watch.

This is my guilty pleasure dorama, i recognize all of the flaws everyone point to it, but i still love it, can�Lt really explain why.
The story has litle of forbiden love so i think it as one of the reasons that made me like it so much, not to mention that Takizawa Hideaki and Hasegawa Kyoko had great chemestry together.
28. Comments by IkematsuSosuke [Rating: 6/10]
It was an okay drama. I didn't like the lack of communication. I didn't like the lead actress, although beautiful, acting. I didn't like the security cop guy's wisdom--it was lame. I didn't like the regular sappy endings. I didn't like how they were in love when they didn't even know each other..they didn't communicate!

This was an unbelievable story and Surumi was so annoying! Hideaki acted in a weird way I just couldn't understand, so for me the story didn't make much sense. Anyway I finished watching the dorama, because it got better at the end, and I would recommend it only if you don't have any other dorama to watch.

This drama is really not worth watching unless you are a fan of Hideaki Takizawa. Most of the time it drags a bit, especially after the first episode.The only saving grace to this drama is the ending, which was sorta cute and the clincher kiss between Kyon and Surumi at the stadium is SUPER HOT!!

After watching Boku Dake No Madonna with english subs, it has become my current Takki favorite dorama. I have come to the conclusion that Kyon is the man that all girls would die for! He is the perfect epitome of what we should look for in a man. Reality-wise, it's hard to find one that looks like Takki. But Kyon's characteristics are the most important thing in his persona. The ability to love unconditionally and to give it his all even if he was hurting so much inside. Awwww, Kyon's the one for me!

The story's so simple with a little twist on how they met. But it made me believe in love again and that anything is possible if you just have faith.

I really enjoyed this drama, because it's light-hearted and very well-developed in terms of all characters. Even the supporting characters were well-developed and they all added comic relief and substance to the whole story. Most of all I really like the evolution of the relationship between Kyoichi and Surumi. It was obvious that he had a crush on her at first sight, and it was interesting to watch how that gradually turned into something deeper.

I really recommend this dorama if you're after something fairly short and light - this dorama will keep you laughing, and tearing at certain parts.

Unconvetional and funny love story for a die-hard dreamy romantic like me. I can watch 10 times and cry and laugh 10 times with it. Love the cute cast. Ignite my imagination & makes me want to write a story. I actually tried to refrain myself from watching too fast because I didn't want to part with the drama so quickly but alas still got panda eyes from chasing after it. I think life should be like that huh...

This drama is pretty cool . .. . out of alll the dramas I have ever watched of Takki's . . this is the only one I actually think he looks good with a girl . . . .as you all know, Takki is soooo "pretty" . . finally, they found someone that could look good with him!!!! Don't get me wrong, because Nanako is sooo beautiful, but she looks too old for him, therefore . . .they don't look as good as Takki with Kyoko ^.^

I didn't think I would enjoy this drama, but I really did! Hasegawa Kyoko is a sight for sore eyes: very pretty, great hair, expressive eyes, and she can ACT! Takizawa-kun too, adds alot of fun and laughter to this series, and even though he looks like everyone's very cute baby brother, makes a nice-looking pair with Kyoko-chan. I enjoyed this very much. Will love to get the OST as well.

my favourite jdorama! it's light hearted and fun to watch! there are many funny moments in this show, and kyoko & takki fit their roles perfectly. they have great chemistry :) kyon is really really cute in this show, takki's comic timing is perfect!!! and it helps that the supporting cast are also nice to watch! it's a show to sit back, relax and enjoy. finally, the music is awesome~

This is a very cute drama! The plot sounds funny doesn't it? haha I really luv the scenes where Kyoichi would suddenly yell at his friend in class and the professor would always think that Kyoichi was yelling at him. (The poor professor looked so helpless) I really luv the ending to this drama! It's so romantic!!
8. tzanth
Wow... what an amazing dorama! Its really rare to find something where you can root for every single character, yet maintains suspense and excitement throughout. Great chemistry between surumi and kyon... Really just a wonderfully happy dorama all around! I just wish it wasent over! ^^

A clever storyline, great actors, and character development worthy of appraisal makes this drama a winner! If you miss this, you will regret it!

Man, I feel so jealous of "Kyon", he has it good. It would have been hard for me to choose between his ex or Surumi. Beautiful Story.
