Hana Kimi 1-6

Hana Kimi's pretty boys + girl cast :)

The Dorama Hanazakari no Kimitachi e a.ka. Hana Kimi is the very popular Bishonen packed show airing in Japan as the moment. It’s based on Hisaya Nakajo’s popular manga and is basically about a girl Mizuki who transfers to a Japanese all boy’s school all the way from America. She dresses up and acts as a boy all to try and get Sano back into High Jumping after he quit about 1 year ago. Throughout her stay as the all boys dormitories, mischief and trouble arises as she tries to hide her identity.

Each episode sees to a new “challenge” where by the 3 dorms compete among each other to win the challenge and gain a prize such as LDC tv in each dorm! or not cleaning up for the rest of the year! The story like and sequence of events are quite ridiculous. The humour is quite Japanese (no wonder the Taiwanese couldn’t pull off the Taiwanese version of Hana Kimi) , heh so the bunch of pretty Japanese boys sure pulled it off well. THe story while being totally unrealistic, stupid and absurd, actually does quite well for itself. I find myself laughing a lot as all the unique characters. It’s like watching one of those Japanese talk shows.

Mizuki is acted but the girl who played as Nobuta in Nobuta wo Produce and Sano is played by none other than the one who played Rui in Hana Yori Dango I & II. So far they portrayed their characetrs fairly well I suppose. Mizuki’s pulled off pretty well, you can obviously tell its a girl, if you couldn’t then the actor would be pretty manly herself then. But then again, A lot of Jap boys look like girls :p

Hana Kimi'sLove chart

It’s pure Fangirl haven I say 😀 watching pretty boys being stupid and funny and stereotyped cute Japanese girls flock after them sure as hell funny. Like I say a unique sort of Japanese style Humour :p Anyway, yes pretty boys, lots of them, maybe you don’t like Sano or Mizuki or whever, but I’m pretty sure you’ll find a really hot/cute guy in there to like 😀 Personally I find Nakatsu (the one who THINKS he’s gay) hilarious! Brilliant character. Great friend. Sano personally pretty indifferent to him. He reminds me a LOT of Rui from Hana Yori Dango, uncaring and always acting cool ( I really find Hana Yori Dango and Hana Kimi quite similar in many respects, pretty boys and flocking girls are sure strong similarities :p) Mizuki herself is way better than Ella who acted in the Taiwanese version, so Propers to her. Horikita Maki I find is a pretty good actor, one of the new young ones, I’ve watched a couple of doramas with her in it as minor/major characters. Most of the time I find her character (if its a major one) quite similar.

As for more minor characters, the Dorm Leaders are all hilarious, the karate dude, the player previously with 15 girlfriends and the drama dude and super exaggerated yet great characters. My favourite minor character (whose name I can’t recall) is the one who introduced Mizuki to the dorm system and is also friends with Sano on the Field sports team. It was hilarious when he cosplayed as some Gundam character in epi4 to win the heart of a girl from sister school St. Blossoms.He’s just so adorable and cute! Sano’s High jump rival is the captain from the Prince of tennis movie! Anotehr good looking guy, but he’s not half bad interms of his character.

Anyway, just felt like a little rant of the series. I’ll be following it to the end (Epi 12) and see how things turn out. THe pace of the show is also good, it doesn’t feel show and drawn out like the Taiwanese version.

    My brother and sister can’t seem to get enough of HanaKimi. My brother, for one, has been annoying the heck out of me by singing “homo ja nai” at every possible opportunity.

    I’ll give it a go myself, although I might wait until they get close to the end (say, Episode 8/9 or so).

    haha. Well it’s definitely popular with the girls… with so many pretty boys about 🙂 but people (guys included) would watch it cause its just really funny. I was intro’d to it by a guy and he watches it cuz its funny. so yeh definitely give it a go if you’re interested in comedy jd’s

    I’m not really big on bishounens, but I’ll give this drama a go.

    Although the concept is strangely familiar… with a girl disguising herself as a boy in a boy’s school. At first, I thought I was thinking of Ouran High, but I don’t think that’s it…

    Great great series! I finished every bit already. And it was based on the Manga and had a Taiwanese version, so that’s why it may seem familiar.

    Love the Jap version better! whoo! The guy who dressed up as a gundam character is Sekime xD

  6. 6 sliver January 9, 2008 at 5:41 pm

    Shame on you! you don’t remember Sekime? He’s lamenting about that in the entire series… nobody can remember his name… hahaha! I loved everybody in this series… Although I got the Japanese version by mistake, it took me around five minutes into the first episode to be really grateful I didn’t get the Taiwanese version…

    I love Nakatsu… Half the time I can’t decide who to root for… His struggle kind of reminded me of Han Kyul’s struggle in coffee prince, but Nakatsu-kun’s waaaay more hilarious…

    And the three dorm heads… Tennouji the martial arts freak, Nanba the playboy, and Masao (Oscar) the drama king… I so loved Nanba…

    And of course… who can forget… “Hibari Four!”

    Love it, love it, love it.

  29. 30 daniel April 9, 2008 at 3:22 pm

    The story of the Taiwanese Ver. is more accurate and was more based on the manga than the japanese one.

    The stories of the two are pretty much different but following the same plot.

    The Taiwanese is more MELODRAMATIC than the Japanese one.

    But I think NAKATSU is much much hottter than JIN XIU YI!

  30. 31 Echa April 10, 2008 at 8:53 am

    I really love this drama…
    I think
    The Japanese is more good than more the Taiwanese
    Nakatsu
