Storyline (Wikipedia)
Based on the manga by Hayakawa Tomoko, it is about a girl who confessed her first and only love to a boy but she was called “ugly” by him. This incident sparks a life change, and as a result Sunako shuns all forms of beauty, both in herself as well as in life. Concerned by her change for the worst, Sunako’s aunt – the owner of a beautiful mansion where four very handsome students live, offers the guys free rent in her mansion if they can turn Sunako into a “perfect lady”

While the four of them manage to make Sunako physically beautiful enough to become a lady, the problem lies with her attitude and interests (which Sunako has no intention of changing). Up until the most recent release in the story, they’ve managed to convince Sunako’s aunt that her niece is indeed a lady befitting the mansion in which they live (and prevent the rent from skyrocketing to triple the required amount). However, in reality, Sunako has not changed considerably.

Characters (credits Crunchyroll & Wikipedia)

Kamenashi Kazuya as Kyouhei Takano
The most popular and physically attractive of the foursome. Kyouhei is initially seen as selfish, blunt, demanding, very loud, bossy and having no inclination to be gentle towards Sunako unless it will reduce rent. Kyouhei’s unnaturally good looks resulted in many unfortunate experiences: he left his hometown because his family was unable to take the strain of his fans constantly harassing and mobbing them.  He is also unable to hold a job because he seems to be prone to being sexually harassed. Because of these experiences, he is able to empathesize with Sunako best; he develops a solid relationship with her and protects her when she needs him to. However, his own unresolved feelings for her mean that he is unafraid to take advantage of her weaknesses or provoke her rage. Kyouhei enjoys fighting and loves to eat, especially Sunako’s cooking. Strawberries are his favorite fruit.
Oomasa Aya as Sunako Nakahara
The female lead, Sunako locked herself away and chose to live without any desire for light or beauty after a traumatic experience where she was rejected by her first love. Sunako is a lover of solitude, gory movies, anatomical dolls and objects that reflect the “ugly” side of life as she puts it; her interests resulted in her distorted view of reality and isolation contributed to her low self-esteem.She is intelligent, talented in numerous areas, particularly cooking, and is an exceptionally strong fighter. However, by living with Kyouhei and the other boys, she gradually interacts with other people and slowly sheds her anti-social tendencies. She has especially mixed feelings about Kyouhei and as the storyline progresses, their relationship becomes more solid and intimate.
Uchi Hiroki as Takenaga Oda
A serious and intelligent young man from a wealthy family of ikebana masters. Takenaga is usually the voice of reason amongst the foursome and the least fazed by Sunako’s morbid habits. However, he is emotionally reserved as a result of extreme pressure as his family’s heir; as a result, Takenaga is too shy to express his feelings towards his girlfriend, Noi. As the manga progresses, he becomes more social and open about himself.

Tegoshi Yuya as Yukinojo “Yuki” Toyama

A gentle and kind boy who is devoted to his friends, Yuki comes from an ordinary family to board with the Landlady, who is a friend of his mother’s. He is the most innocent and easily frightened of the four, especially in regards to entering Sunako’s room. Because of his effeminate features, he is often reluctantly forced to dress up like a girl, which has led to self-esteem issues.
Miyao Shuntaro as Ranmaru Morii
Ranmaru is a notorious playboy who is the only son of a wealthy family of hotel chain owners. He is extroverted, confident, and a self-professed expert of love and women, having dated many older married women. However, he has a good heart and cares for his friends and is the most active in the goal towards making Sunako into an ideal lady. He is later engaged to a reserved and sheltered girl, whose unusual attitude towards him creates mixed feelings and makes him unsure of his playboy ways.
Kanbe Ranko as Naie “Noi” Kasahara
Most likely the most beautiful girl at school, Noi becomes friends with Sunako in order to become closer to Takenaga, though genuinely values her friendship with Sunako and greatly admires her abilities. She is Sunako’s first female friend and stands up for her when their classmates make fun of her. Because of her quick temper and romantic notions, she and Kyouhei often argue, particularly in regards to Sunako. Noi loves Takenaga unfailingly, but often questions the nature of their relationship as Takenaga is too shy to make his feelings toward her more explicit. Like the boys, Noi is not that good when it comes to housework.
