僕等がいた (We Were There)

is an on-going Japanese romance manga by Yuki Obata, centering around the high school life of freshman girl, Nanami Takahashi. It has been serialized in Betsucomi since 2002. The series went on hiatus in early 2008, but resumed publication in June 2009. The series is licensed for an English language release in North America by Viz Media. It was adapted into a 26-episode television anime series which aired from July 3 to December 25, 2006.
In 2005, the manga won the Shogakukan Manga Award for shōjo.

Synopsis : 

Nanami has just started high school. She wishes to make many friends, but makes a huge mistake already. She forgets a girl's name so she asks a random guy in the hall what the girl's name was. The guy tells her it is "Mizuhara". During the nomination for a class president, Nanami nominates Mizuhara. It turns out that the girl's name was Mizuguchi, not Mizuhara, and so Nanami ends up being the class president... 

Nanami gets angry at the guy, who is named Motoharu. She also finds out that Motoharu is very popular and is liked by at least 2/3 of the class. Well, it looks like Nanami is in the rare 1/3! 

However, after a failing moment (her math test), she goes to the roof top and spots Motoharu. Though Nanami feels that Motoharu is an irresponsible and crude guy, he has a charming smile and develops a liking for him.


  • Nanami "Nana" Takahashi (高橋 七美 Takahashi Nanami?), the series protagonist, is a high school girl who falls in love with the popular Motoharu Yano. They struggle with issues of trusting one another as the shadow of Yano's dead girlfriend, who was with another guy at the time she died, looms over them. In the manga, eventually Yano's inability to let go and her inability to focus on the future rather than the past lead to their breaking up. She eventually begins dating Take, but is unable to forget Yano completely. When Take proposes, she rejects him, then begins searching for Yano after meeting one of his coworkers and learning where he is. In the anime adaptation, she is voiced by Nozomi Sasaki.
  • Motoharu Yano (矢野 元晴 Yano Motoharu?) is a popular high school boy whose girlfriend was killed in a car crash while out with another guy. He has a hard time trusting Nanami, and displays jealousy and possessiveness, to the point of physically abusing her. As the series progresses, he wrestles with his feelings for his dead girlfriend versus those for the living Nanami, whom he even calls "Nana-chan" at times. Yano moves to Tokyo with his mom, but after half a year he stops contacting Nanami, effectively breaking up with her. Eventually it is revealed that his mother killed herself, after which he disappeared. He reappears four years later, living with Yamamoto but still remembering Nanami. In the anime adaptation, he is voiced by Hiroshi Yazaki.
  • Masafumi "Take" Takeuchi (竹内 匡史 Takeuchi Masafumi?) is Yano's close friend and becomes a friend and confidant for Nanami after she begins dating Yano. As the series progresses, he finds himself falling in love with her, leaving him unsure how to proceed. When Yano breaks up with Nanami, they begin dating. He eventually proposes, but she turns him down. In the anime adaptation, he is voiced by Takuji Kawakubo.
  • Yuri Yamamoto (山本 有里 Yamamoto Yuri?) is the younger sister of Nana, Yano's late girlfriend. She had a crush on Yano even while he was dating her sister. A week after Nana's death, Yano had sex with her. She originally believed he was simply using her, but later suspects he was pitying her. After Yano begins dating Nanami, she becomes an obstacle for their relationship as Yano continues displaying some closeness with her. In the anime adaptation, she is voiced by Erina Nakayama.


Johnny’s talent Toma Ikuta and actress Yuriko Yoshitaka will play the leads in an upcoming movie adaptation of a popular romance manga series, it was revealed on May 1, reports Oricon and Chunichi Sports.
“僕等がいた (Bokura ga ita, We Were There)” is an ongoing manga series by Yuki Obata and follows a couple over 10 years of their life from the time they meet at high school, move onto university, and then go into the working world.  The story moves around Hokkaido and Tokyo and follows the characters as they fall in love and experience the hardship that comes with it.
“This might be the last time I wear a school uniform (laughs).  I hope I can enjoy that young, sweet high school life to the full,” Ikuta said.
Ikuta’s character Motoharu Yano is the popular boy at school; he’s smart, good-looking, and athletic.  But the part to watch out for is how he is affected by his girlfriend’s death after she dies in a car accident.
“I feel thankful be able to given the chance to play such a cool, yet very human character like Yano, but I want to do my best to bring some life into him,” he said.
Ikuta’s co-star Yoshitaka said it was her first time playing a character adapted from a romance manga, and she was aware that the series has a lot of devoted fans.
“I want to do my best to make sure I don’t betray the manga’s fans or put them to shame,” she said.
Filming is scheduled to begin this month and is reported to be aiming for a two-part release in 2012.
