Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge (The Wallflower/Perfect Girl Evolution/Sunako of Many Forms/My Fair Lady) is possibly one of the most overlooked anime. For an anime series that had just recently ended in March this year at 25 episodes, the animation style, color and overall look feels even much “older” even when compared to History’s Strongest Disciple, Kenichi.
Honestly, I found the character design for the “pretty boys” to be terrible, and had spent the first 5 minutes of the first episodes trying to figure out whether they were boys or girls. Thankfully, the real girls are designed quite nicely, even the fearsome Sada… I mean Sunako.
While the 4 guys offer plenty of fun, the true star of the series is without a doubt Nakahara Sunako, the so called ugly duckling whom the guys are supposed to turn into a beautiful and graceful swan.
Hilarity ensues as the guys attempts to perform the impossible in hopes for free rent at the mansion of Sunako’s aunt. The story brings about issues such as confidence, self-acceptance and beauty, although any possible lessons you can learn would probably be thrown out the window by the time you stopped laughing and rolling on the floor.
Fans of comedic anime should definitely give this series a try, just hold back your initial judgment until you’ve at least finished the first 3 episodes or so, you will not regret it. Also, if you’re a rabid anime fan, you would probably recognize most of the seiyuus in this anime
