Aside from our seasonal recommendations Currently Watching! and the personal ones Underrated Dramas, we thought making a list of dramas that for one reason or the other are related to the drama we have chosen as pick of the month was a good idea to help new drama watchers – and seniors undergoing a “jaded period”- to pick their next obsession.
Hello guys! Im back with another list of drama to recommend, this time with dramas like Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henche. I hope you all love it, pick some, watch them, and come back for more. 🙂
Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henche is a drama based of a Japanese graphic-novel; there is also an anime. It was one of my first Japanese dramas, and the first time I saw Kamenashi acting. If there is any drama to watch with him is this one and Tatta Hitotsu no Koi. I think the two are his best performances so far. The re-watch value of this drama is around an 8 on a scale of 1-10. This drama has a very simple plot, and there is nothing much else holding it together aside from the daily events that the characters experience. The message behind is very strong though, and its what is most important in Yamato.
So here it is, the list of dramas like Yamato… and then some! 😀
Please note that we have linked the dramas based on the major elements of Yamato, any other dramas that we might mention are not related to Yamato directly but to the recommended dramas =)
Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henche– A romcom based of a manga, with reverse harem elements about four young men that have to transform a gothic, wild girl, into a lady. There is a strong message of learning how to love yourself, and it also deals with parent/child relationships. Its got lots of off the wall humor on the horror side.
