Natsuki Takaya's shojo romance manga Fruits Baskte will get its first stage play — by a theatrical troupe that happens to be all-male. Gekidan Studio Life is aiming to open the production in The Galaxy Theater in Tokyo on February 25 for a two-week run. In an attempt to cast unknown actors looking for their professional stage debuts, the theatrical company has been holding auditions from October 1 to November 28. "Healthy males 23 years old or younger" can audition, although a guardian's permission is required for minors.

One is a literature graduate student who dreams of becoming a writer (Yoo Ji Tae), another is a famous photographer (Choi Phillip), the third is the heir to a major chaebol family (Ki Tae Young), and the last man chasing after Ma Ri is a young executive who works at a media corporation (Lee Ki Woo). from dramawiki

"Shugo Chara" ("Character Eggs") 51 episodes- complete
I don't usually enjoy watching kiddie animes well except for 'Cardcaptor Sakura' and 'Alice Academy'. And now I can add "Shugo Chara". It's very relaxing to watch and it really does take away all of my negative energy. I also liked the cute yet cool animation and characters. It's not trying too hard to be icky girly cute. It's a long series but it never felt like it's a chore to watch. I looked forward to watching the the new charas, transformations and the combinations. Admit it you also make the 'My Heart Unlock' and 'Open Heart' hand signals. Lol! I'm going to file this under related animes since the guys who like Amu or vice versa are only secondary to the story. There is a missing person in the above pic, but I saw him in the teaser for the second season. I'm rooting for him or Ikuto. As for the charas, I really love Su for her personality and voice. Desu!

Japanese Cover Version
"Twillight" by Stephenie Meyer
There is also another reason why I'm recommending this. The first book...yep just "Twilight" is kinda like a reverse harem since there's about 5 guys interested in her. I'm not sure if all of them will make the cut in the movie.
UPDATE :10/18- Yes! they all made it in the movie. (L-R) Edward, Jacob, Eric, Mike (stock photo), and elusive picture of Tyler. That might not be Tyler. Don't they look like they're from "United Colors of Benetton" ad?
UPDATE : 11/4 That's Tyler indeed based from Paramore's official video of "Decode".

"Hye Sun plsud Yeon Woo (Makino) who is a swimmer in a school that does not even have a swimming team. Her family operates a dry-cleaning shop which is situated just besides the legendary “Shin Hwa College”, opened only for nobles. During a trip to the college to deliver some laundry, Yeon Woo meets the four male lead and their story begins from there.
Director Jeon Ki Sang explained Goo Hye Sun was chosen eventually because she fits Tsukushi’s image well, and acknowledges that the public had tossed her name around a lot as a prospective Makino when the drama was first announced. She was in fact one of the front-runners in the numerous polls."
