Stand Up!!Published on January 15th, 2008.
Stand Up!! is about 4 really perverted 17-year-old guys trying to loose their virginity. The four boys (also called DB4, or Doutei Boys 4, meaning the four virgin boys) are the last virgins left at school and they are desperate for sex. During the summer holidays, a childhood friend comes to visit them, reason unknown at first but ends up in a great story.
Lots of familiar faces in this drama, for me. There’s YamaPi, Oguri Shun, Nino, Kato Takako, Becky and more, all great actors/actresses!

It took some time to get used to Oguri Shun in this drama, since I just watched Hana Yori Dango, he’s totally different in this one. But he’s really good nonetheless, and I didn’t expect him doing such a character.
YamaPi’s role is pretty normal, kind of like what you see in Kurosagi. He’s a calm guy addicted to trains, but he’s kind of a closet perv, haha. YamaPi never disappoints me though, but I’d like to see him in a role like in Nobuta wo Produce.
“Ikemen, ikemen, ikemen, ramen!”
Nino (Ninomiya Kazunari) who I know from Yasashii Jikan surprised me just like Oguri Shun. I’ve only seen him acting in Yasashii Jikan so this was definitely something new to me, he’s a really good actor.
Narimiya Hiroki, the fourth member of DB4, or should I say first since he’s the one who founded the group, even though DB4 wasn’t the name he gave the group. I’ve never seen him before, but I will watch more of his dramas ’cause he’s totally awesome! And he’s super perverted! I hope he has similar roles in other dramas.
I recommend this to everyone, old, young, it doesn’t matter. It’s really funny and not just about perverted guys, it also features friendship problems, love triangles, hypocrisy of adults and much more!
