To be or not to be, that’s not so important.
landreaall10.jpgI sometimes forget that “Landreaall” is a fantasy story because dragon-related adventure finishes in book #3 and from book #4, the story setting is mainly laid in academy school (and it still continues in recently published book #10). I didn’t actually recall this story much as a fantasy until Pegasus appeared in book #9. If anything, “Landreaall” is more like a medieval fiction – chivalry and etiquette, knights and mercenaries, revolution and round-table, etc.

The story features a young man called DX, son of General Lookafort (now the Lord of Ecalipe). DX actually possesses the right to the throne, but his mother being ex-mercenary, he and his little sister Ion grows up with a unique and independent way of thinking. Their frank talk, carefree manner, skilled movement during the battle (mostly taught by their mother and the Ninja master who lives with them) do not give a hint that they are nobility, which often surprises people around them. But even though DX is even described as “sleep-eyed” from his friends and adults, his words often vibrates with surprising sincerity and rationality. This is probably because he does understand the complicated situation he’s in …that he has the right of succession though his father carried out a revolution in the past (but DX would rather renounce it like his father did if the situation allows).

No loans, no debts.
taro.jpgI say “Yamada Taro Monogatari (Story of Taro Yamada)” did a fairly good job in the TV broadcasting compared to “Hanazakari no Kimitachi e”, both being originally a popular manga. This story is about a high-school boy called Taro, literally, who goes to private high school for the wealthy family. Due to his handsome appearance, bright mind, all-round athletic ability, gentle & refined manner, Taro is one of the most popular boys in school. That is why no one – except for his friend Mimura – even suspects that he is in fact from an utterly poor family with many small brothers & sisters to take care of.

Taro is acted by Kazunari Ninomiya – quite unexpected for me because Ninomiya has a rather plain looking (no offence here) whereas the original Taro has quite a fancy appearance. But I think this casting succeeded because though the appearance may be different, the overall impression stayed the same –very sincere, honest and warmhearted.
