To be honest i'm a little bit disappointed from this version of the manga... I preferred the first drama of Hana Kimi >.< cause it's nearer the true story... :s
But i'll continue and watch it cause it may become very interesting =) (and the casting is great so i can't stop it XD)
Thank U so much for the release !!

I've watched all of the episodes of the TW version for Hanakimi. How can you guys say that one is better? I mean, it follows the storyline of the manga pretty well on the beginning, but the ending was just whack. There were no chemistry between the main characters. Ella overacts (or most TW actors do that) while Wu Zun doesn't really show much of his emotions on screen. My favorite for that one was Jiro because he got the part of the wild, monkey like Nakatsu really well. Other than him and his roommate, everyone else did not do their roles well.

For those who hasn't finished it yet, you shouldn't have to because the ending was changed for the worst. Nothing happened with anyone.

As for the Japanese version, though it doesn't follow the manga 100% of the time, I still love it. Have you guys seen Hana Yori Dango (japanese version), that also doesn't follow the manga closely but the main plots of the manga are presented. It was much much better than Meteor Garden (again) because of the chemistry and acting talents of each actor.

I'm not hating TW drama adaptations since I really loved Devil Beside You because Rainie Yang and Mike He on screen chemistry. All of their acting was top notch and the 2 main leads were so cute together.

Back to Hanakimi:

Changes has to be made for the drama because:

1. the manga has 23 volumes, while Japanese dramas are only 11-13 episodes long (unless they make a 2nd season), so everything has to be condensed

2. Its a drama people, not a manga. Subtle changes in the way things happen doesnt really change the reason why it happened. The part about Sano getting cut and Mizuki following him for that reason is much more believable (in terms of real world and not stalker like personality) instead of just idolizing him.

3. Maki doesn't have to overact just to get her point across as playing a guy. Compared to Coffee Prince, she may not have the mannerisms down completely, but we have to understand that Go Eun Chan grew up :scratch: that way in order to support her family. while Mizuki just began acting like a guy the best way she could.

4. Anymore points may be revealed later on, but these are my opinions for the drama so far.

Regards to that, I think the reason for the TW Hana Kimi ending to be so weird is because they're probably going to have a sequel to this. They might actually have the manga ending in Hana Kimi 2.

About the Japanese version. I really love it =] I really love Maki's character in this, I think she plays her part really well.
Shun and Toma's kiss was hilarious :lol

Haha, I know! I loved how Toma was seriously like smiling a bit, when about to be kissed. But then his face toned down, to make it seem more real :lol.

I wonder what he was thinking at the time :D.
And I absolutely loveee Maki. Best actress ever.

That's why I said i'll continue to watch it... =)
I'll just have to get use to see the same kind of story with different actors and with a different language that's all ^o^
I'll watch it til the end i already know that ^^
Just waiting the sequel =)
Garnet07 i must confess that i was as disappointed as you by the end of the 1st Hana Kimi that's another reason for me to continue this one :D

i didn't like the ending of the Hana Kimi manga, i hope the drama ends it differently.

something that i can't stop cracking up at is the opening song, when they show the picture of all the students. its so funny seeing all those crazy, jagged edged, asian boy haircuts. every single one of them has them!! its a little ridiculous, but i'm not like against it or anything. i just think its funny.

arrows between sano and nakatsu, mizuki to nakatsu says "close friends"
sano and mizuki arrow says "interest" I think. I can't read what it says mizuki pointing to sano. I think its love or some sort.
red arrows between nakatsu to mizuki and nakao to nanba says "love"
nakao pointing to mizuki says "rival"
mizuki pointing to sekima says "affects" I think.
the 3 greens on top pointing down says "senpai" or seniors

Thanks for the clarification,
I've always wondered what Sekime's arrow meant.
Hmm.

I really love Sekime though. He's so cute.
:lol.
Of course without his blond, frizzy hair :P.
YOU GUYS LOOK AT MY SIG, TOMAA <3.

Everybody be warned: HanaKimi's rating might take a hit this week.

As some of you might know that there was a strong earthquake shook Japan's northwest coast on Monday, and the news coverages are none stop, so it might have an affect on HanaKimi's rating this week.

I hope everyone in Japan is okay if thatis the cause of a Hana Kimi delay then I'm all for it..It'll be hard getting through the week though

Yeah, I also saw the significant drop in the First Kiss' ratings as well. Poor Hana Kimi, then. I hope everyone is ohkayy :lol.

Oh I never posted my review of Hana Kimi..I warmed up to the first episode but I didn't really love until the 2nd episode..I knew Toma was perfect for Nakatsu because that's how Toma acts in real life. He and Jrio are perfect..Shun is really stand out for me yet which is a surprise for me because I usually love all the dramas he acts in but he's a better actor than Wu Zun(who I've never warmed up to after Tokyo Juliet)..Maki makes a pretty good role( for Mizuki (tho I would still love Aya Ueto as Mizuki...cause she dies boy perfectly if u see Kinpachi) but sometimes she's a bit too stiff..I'm not used to seeing her in a not weird person role so she's warming up to but I want her to be more outgoing or I don't know no matter what Maki does she always seems kinda mellow or introverted but she grasps Mizuki pretty well. I love Ghost biy and the Doctor is growing on me. I'm sooooo weired out by Oscar and the Hibari girls are so pointless and annoying.

Ehh, I thought it was pretty good! But I'd rather download and watch Hana Kimi ten times over. First kiss would probably be one of those series in which I would watch one time. And on Veoh :D.
I'm patiently waiting for hardsubs XD.

Hana Kimi, I'm really scared for its ratings. GOOD LUCK HANAZAKARI NO KIMITACHI E.

Her as the accused "X" was pretty intense!
I wonder how old she is. In the drama.
Because it is mentioned that she one a high-school's contest 7 years in a row. Hilarious, freaking' a, but perhaps a bit strange XD.

20? :blink She is a highschooler... I mean she is running around in a uniform. And she may be dumb but I doubt she is 20. I think the whole 7 years thing just has to do with her being so popular and beatuiful that everyone loved her and she always one...

But the contest is only held once a year. There are only 4 years in high school. Not 7.
Either she doesn't even attend the school, and finds fangirling in a St. Blossom's uniform is pleasurable - or. She's just been held back several times, probably intentionally, in order to win the contest.

Either way, it's pretty funny XD.

No, I get that. I'm guess what I'm trying to say is how Yuujiro won King and Mizuki won Queen. It was unintentional. I mean I can picture her as a little 13 year-old appearing on stage wether she goes there or not and winning just because she is apprently wonderful.

Though the idea of being held back to intentionally win is A++ :lol

So the curly-haired chick in Hana Kimi...did she played the hawt sunglasses chick in Liar Game, right? I haven't seen Liar Game in so long to remember exactly how she looked.

I can't believe that she's the same girl in some random variety TV show video below:

im saying shes 20 cuz she won the award 6 times in a row meaning she got held back twice
you graduate from highschool usually at 18
add two years and it equals 20

High schools are 4 years in Japan as well? I thought they were only 3 years?

I know that Taiwan is definitely 3 years (10th to 12th), and they use the same system as Japan since Taiwan used to be a Japanese colony. But then, they don't call it high school. When I referred to high school when I to college in Taiwan, my friends asked me if I meant junior (7th, 8th, 9th) or senior.

But if you really want to get technical, high school can be seen as being six years in Taiwan/Japan if you combine junior and senior high.

Just saw the first episode and to be honest, it's quite pathetic. Oguri Shun's character is just Hanazawa Rui v2 and Horikita Maki doesn't have any charm with her, rendering her performance bland and boring. I'll continue to watch until the third episode and if by then it's not better, I'll drop it.

SPOILERS FROM TONIGHT'S EP....
(sorry if some things are a bit out of chrono order... this probably wont be a review, more of just a listing of some random events? idk) and if im a bit vague its because my japanese isnt too good.
they talk about Sano's little bro in this ep. Kagurazaka (Shirota Yuu :cheers: ) shoves a magazine featuring Shin (played by Daito Shunsuke). in the magazine shot, Shunsuke looks like Shun. heck, even their names are similar.

theres some sort of Lie Detector chair/machine thing that the dorm 2 guys got somehow. they make Nakatsu sit in it and ask him questions like whether or not he likes men or not. and poor Nakatsu, he answers "no" but the lie detector flashes its lights meaning that hes lieing XD. then after that Nakatsu and Kayashima are eating. Nakatsu looks at his little milk carton and looks at the part that says its "homo(genized) milk" and in his eyes the katakana for "homo" is highlighted in pink! :lol

we get to see Oguri Shun shirtless twice :whistling:

Himejima and dormates make this huge hole trap in the ground at night and then HImejima himself falls into it :lol . even though dorama!Himejima is diff, i still like him.

Sano overhears the Mizuki-SHizuki while standing outside the room door. he finds out MIzuki is a girl. later in the ep Mizuki is talking to him. Sano gets mean :-( . he tells Mizuki to go home. Mizuki is sad and runs out the room and literally goes off and cries in a corner :-( poor Mizuki. this is the part where I was expecting Nakatsu to rush in and try to cheer her up like he did earlier on in the manga... but alas, this is the drama and is different. they show Sano in his room flopping on his bed with his hand on his head. he regrets being mean.
during the MIzuki-Shizuki convo, MIzuki says something about (i think) Sano's smile. maybe something about want to make him smile? wanting to see his smile? idk.

when Umeda first meets Shizuki, they shake hands and sparks literally fly. and then same thing happens when they make eye contact. :lol later in the ep Shizuki goes to see Umeda. he leans over close to Shizuki and blows air into his ear. and keeps making Shizuki uncomfortable and thus causing him to run out. oh gay Umeda how i <3 you XD.

Nakatsu gives MIzuki a drink, she falls asleep on his shoulder, he sees her in "Nakatsu VIsion", he leans over to kiss her, the "Akiha" hybrid character snapshots the near kiss XD.

Nakatsu finds a bra and underwear set randomly in the dorm hall. he puts the bra on normally and the underwear on his head, thus leading to the scene shown in the preview. he starts dancing around in it while happily repeating "Ore wa Homo ja nai!" (i and not a homo!) XD :lol . and of course shortly after, EVERYONE enters the room and is shown staring at Nakatsu. haha Toma is so loveable as Nakatsu! :D

the ST. Blossom girls search the dorm for who has been stealing launderet. everyone's expression while waiting for confirmation that so-and-so's room is "innocent" is so great XD. (cant really be described, must be watched)

they find it in MIzuki's room but then Sano comes in and saves the day. he leads everyone to Yujiro's doghouse and turns out Yujiro was the culprit and had a whole stash of underwears and bras in his doghouse. :lol aww yujiro~

Nanaba puts on the bra. idk.
earlier in the ep when Nanba goes to sit in the lie detector chair, Nakao sits on his lap but then gets pushed off :lol

somewhere in the latter part of the ep (one of the times that Sano talks to Shizuki), he tells Shizuki something about how be needs to believe in Ashiya. and he says "onegaishimasu" somewhere in there. i guess thats directed toward either believing Mizuki or letting her stay. idk, sorry. =/

between the "end" of the ep and the preview, they had a maki commercial. it threw me off because i thought the plot part of the ep was still going ^^;
the dorm heads are funny in the preview.
