What Happens When A Hit Manga Gets Mugged By The Director Of EXCEL SAGA? Answer: THE WALLFLOWER! After years of sponging off a fabulously wealthy older woman, four ridiculously beautiful boys are forced to use their bishi skills to turn their benefactors socially challenged niece into a beautiful young lady! And this isnt just any ugly duckling theyre facing; shes a psycho, paranoid, neurotic horror movie obsessed goth chick with a fetish for anatomical dummies, bad skin and a total ignorance of all things feminine!
The romantic comedy Wallflower (2006) continues the anarchic humor of director Shinichi Watanabe's Excel Saga and Nerima Daikon Brothers. Kyohei, Ranmaru, Takenaga, and Yukinojoh, four bishonen (beautiful boys), have been freeloading off a wealthy woman for some time when she offers them a proposition: transform her niece Sunako into a perfect young lady--or their rent will be tripled. Two years earlier, Sunako was traumatized when a boy she liked told her she was ugly. She withdrew into a Gothic twilight, ignoring people and spending time with skulls, skeletons, and a human anatomical model. Sunako is quite pretty, but she refuses to accept that fact--or do anything to accentuate her looks. The boys need money desperately, so they go all out to effect the transformation. Wallflower probably plays better in weekly installments: Five episodes of nonstop slapstick, over-the-top vocal performances, and rapid-fire pacing leave the viewer exhausted. (Rated TV 14 D: cartoon violence, brief nudity, risqué humor) --Charles Solomon
