[Edit 4th April] Hiro Mizushima is no longer single. He is getting married!!
When I watched the first episode, I tried to ignore and not to be bothered by Eikura Nana‘s short hairstyle. Her hair was long and looking all sweet gentle elegant in Boku wa Imouto ni Koi wo Suru and Proposal Daisakusen!! 20 minutes into the show, I totally gotten used to her hairstyle and her character, watching this drama non-stop (eps1-4) in one night. Love Nana, love her character, love the story and especially in lurrve with Hiro Mizushima. Ermm, is it me or my imagination? I find his voice super deeply sexy than his previous roles in Hana Kimi and Zettai Kareshi. Plus, Sato Takeru looked like Kame and when his face turned expressionless, he looked like Jin!! 😛
Anyways, Mei-Chan no Shitsuji is ridiculously funny and I have to say I like it way better than Hana Kimi, more enjoyable as there is NO over-the top repeated silliness like Hana Kimi. I know these two dramas have different storyline but I just couldn’t resist comparing, perhaps because there are some familiar faces from Hana Kimi here.
The theme song – My Sunshine by Rock’A’Trench is not too shabby either…… 😉

The story revolves around a young woman named Mei. Hence, the title Mei-Chan’s Butler. Mei-chan was an ordinary girl, helping her parents making a living in selling udons. One day, her parent had an accidental death (accidental or murder, I truly wonder..) and thus her ordinary life is transformed. She discovered that she is an heiress and a butler was to wait upon her! She also forced to transfer to St’ Lucia Girls’ Academy (A high-society school specially for mistress/heiress and their butlers) and hence her crazy adventure begins…
