Mei Chan no Shitsujiメイちゃんの執事– Release Jan 09

Kumo Japan Drama sneak!!

Japan Drama Story:
Shinonome Mei (Eikura Nana) 榮倉奈々once lives as daughter of a poor family that sells ramen. After the sudden death of both her parents, a butler name Shibata Rihito (Mizushima Hiro) 水嶋ヒロ came to her. She was informed that she is the granddaughter of a rich and famous family. Suddenly her life changes as she needs to transfer to St. Lucia Girls' Academy where all the daughters of the rich and famous learn to become lady. With the help of her talented butler and her childhood friend Shibata Kento (Sato Takeru) 佐藤健, she starts her first school day wearing a pair of glasses with long jersey pants under the skirt.

Feelings and comments:
Lately the butler trend seems to be all around anime, manga and drama. The topic about talented butler that can handle almost anything seems to be attracting a lot of fans. I suppose it’s every girls dream to have a talented handsome butler that able to serve you any way you want. Normally only the rich and famous are able to hire such expensive butler service. It might seem to be really cool to have a butler but that might not be a good thing. A butler is needed because parents don’t have much time around or unable to take care of their kids. Perhaps butler is the closes person compare to families. This we can see it from the drama.
Being the lady of rich and famous is not easy. One thing for sure, expectation is high thus things that you’ll need to learn will be very much different from ordinary person. That’s the same as being the prince or princess of a country. You’re not just learning to survive in this world but also to face the world as everybody will be watching.

Things that caught my eyes:
The formal dress code of butler and the school uniform is very fashionable and attractive, especially the skirts. As for the butlers, they all dress up differently but still look formal and nice.

Japan Drama Rating:
Fun to watch. It’s like the girl version of Hanazakari no Kimitachi e. The difference is that this drama has both good looking young girls and boys too.
