    -fangirl screammm-

    Must get my hands on this soon DX!!
    I’m sure it’s much much better than Meteor Garden 2 (which, btw, I dislike to no end x3)!

    Fangirl scream eh. lol. seems like only you and me will do such stuff. lolol.

    Yeah, get your hands on it soon. :3 its too good to be missed. And yeah, MG2 really sucked till no ends cos they had no plot and it wasn’t alike to that of the manga. 8D Anyhows, HYD2 on the otherhand’s way way way wayyyy better. Its like heaven and hell. It was a pain watching MG2 but a delight watching HYD2. lol. :]

    Plus the acting skills of the cast in HYD2 >>>> MG2.
    But yeah. no bashing of MG2. :3

    Oh yeah Meteor Garden was based on HYD. I dunno why but I always think that HYD is the basketball manga. Maybe I’m mixing it up with Dear Boys or something.

    I’m really enjoying season two. The first couple episodes seemed a bit… off? Now the actors all seem in their element, and are doing splendidly. I just watched episode 5 tonight, and good god was the substory with susumu cute.

    I love HYD, but what on earth have they done to the opening credits? I was really impressed with how they did them in season one, but the new credits just looks like a big, ugly mess!

    I totally want Makino and Hanazawa Rui to get together!

    @ alkanphel: Hahaha. I understand. There are quite a few basketball theme dramas as well. Not only boys be, slam dunk as well? 8D Ah, thats the classic anime/manga. Hahah. I wouldn’t mind if they did a drama on slam dunk though. Would prove to be really interested to see Hanamichi in real. 8D

    @ Alex: Yeah, i thought the initial episodes were a waste of airtime! 8D They shld just move onto the central story since there are only 5 more episodes before the entire season ends. That, or they’re planning to come up with a season 3 which i will totally welcome. :] I haven’t watched epi 5 yet. Will do so later. :3 ehehe.

    @ Esme: Yeahhh. The opening credits with the slow portrayal of each of the guys was abit warped impov. lol. But apart from the opening credits, i’m fine with everything else and i lurve the opening theme. 8D Ehehe. omg. you’re a makino-rui too? :] awesome! me too! Hahaha. 8D

    What, so there are only 11 episodes, like last season? I thought I heard some rumours it was gonna be 14 eps long? *crushed* Oh, well, here’s hoping with you that they’ll have season 3 – IF they didn’t finish everything up with this season of course… I wouldn’t want them to stray from the manga either ^^

    I keep swaying between Tsukasa & Rui. What can I say, I love me my shoujo love triangles/rectangles/hexagons :P

    @ Naddie: Yeah, last i heard it only has 11 episodes. Which is why i wonder how are they going to complete the entire storyplot.. Unless this is a sign for a third season which i’ll totally ♥. Haha. i’m crossing my fingers and toes too, if need be. 8D

    I’m still for TsukushiXRui. I just think that tsukushi will be better off, happier with Rui. And he’s falling for her too. Too good an opportunity for them to end up together! Haha, then again. Tsukushi and Tsukasa make a funny and cute couple. lolol. 8D

    Can someone do me a favor and quickly explain the appeal of Hana Yori Dango to me.

    I haven’t watched any of it as it appears to be the type of show I generally avoid; but with so many people raving about it, I fear it may be missing out on something really good.

    I found H&C to be trite and tiresome, and usually dislike shoujo and jousei formulas in general, with the exception of truly excellent shows like Kare Kano, Fruits Basket and Marimite.

    Is Hana Yori Dango along the lines of H&C? Or is it a traditional shoujo storyline with the main male character/interest behaving like a narcissistic prick? Does it have charmers like Kare Kano? Or sweethearts like Marimite?

    What do you guys like about it?

    I’d like to watch it ’cause I’m all to ready for a new show to love (and this show seems to be getting alot of love in the blogging community).
    But I’m scared I’ll just be offput again by horrid egomanical male characters and masochistic mousey female leads as are typically found in shojo.

  10. jooo

    @ Philip72: 8D!! I loved karekano too. The anime and both the manga. Hahaha. HYD’s a really popular shoujo manga o_o i’m surprised you haven’t read it.

    I really think HYD’s too good a drama to be missed. Its not boring neither does it have a slow-moving plot. I wouldn’t lump it together with the likes of H&C. Its more exciting and hilarious impov. 8D H&C’s the kind of anime/manga that portrays everyday life or so right? That’s totally different to the likes of HYD.

    Its a traditional shoujo plotline with a more interesting theme and story to it. i’d say its unique in its own way, not very much like your typical shoujo story. n_n That’s why people are so hooked to it i guess. Plus, the fact that HYD’s currently on a second season is probably a clear distinct indicator that you should watch it 8D Rarely do i see japanese dramas with a second season installed.

    Personally, i love the storyline, i love the characters, i love how it gives me a refreshing plot amidst the many shoujo stories hanging around. They have a male lead with a not-so-big-ego. 8D And a female lead thats a little dumb but with an unyielding and strong character 8D Not in the over domineering sorta way. As in the never-give-up kind of mentality.

    Its really a funny storyline, esp the first season when it first started out. The red tag war and all that. Go give it a shot and tell me what you feel about it later 8D i hope you find it as enjoyable as i do ♥

    Wao all i can say is HYD is very different from the manga. And I think right the main diff is Rui is much more aggressive then in the manga. Thus I think if you’re watching the drama alone, most people will be a Rui shipper. And the fact that O Shun has this cool attitude adds to it. XD But you know me.. always the ever-faithful TT shipper. I think its pretty clear who Tsukushi likes in the drama. And I just love the dynamic between the two. n_n

    HYD too is really good, and I love the soundtrack. The plot seems more tight then in the first one… a lot of things seem to be happening at once. But please please don’t include the Umi arc.. the story is so emo as it is already.

    All in all, a super addictive watch!

    @ invi: O Shun totally wins handsdown pls! Hahaha, there’s just this major appeal he has towards the camera. I don’t know.. >___< Maybe its his shy and ever supportive character that draws me to his camp. RT pls. hehehe. The ending they had for Rui was kinda sad though. The part of him giving away the violin to a little girl that reminds me of little tsukushi. ;_; Why can’t they give him a well-deserved happeh ending? Gahhh. hahaha.

    I don’t rly hate the TT pairing. I’m kinda fine with that too cos i enjoy the stupid fights and arguements they have. But if given the choice its RT for me. Hahaha.

    The OST was really apt~ Hehehe. <3 umi arc ended on a happy note, i’m really glad they didn’t give an emo ending to this series. =D i hope they come up with a 3rd season or a short sequel to it. hehe ♥

    Hana Yori Dango is pretty much the most cliche shoujo plot you could possibly imagine, no exaggeration. It basically puts the main character, Makino Tsukuchi, in a situation any girl would want to be in; surrounded by rich, good looking guys. 2 of them are interested in her, and they both fit “cool guy” stereotypes on both ends of the spectrum (stubborn/cool and calm/cool). It’s basically the female equivalent of the harem plot. The series consists of the main character being indecisive and random misunderstandings between characters occurring over and over again.

    If, however, you’re looking for a truly great j-drama that doesn’t have any annoying stereotypes, you need look no further than Stand Up!!!, which is by far my favorite.

    Wow. Rui is so hot. And the live action actor is even hotter! I wish I had his hair, it’s so sexy. Wow. Tsukasa is okay in comparison, but Rui outshines him like the sun! He’s sooo manly. Wow. It just blows everything else out of the water. He is the most beautiful man. Wow. I hope that he doesn’t fall in love with Tsukushi. I would hate for that to happen! She is not good enough for him. I just want to get lost in his eyes. Wow.

    Wow. Rui Hanazawa. Wow.
