Already a successful television series in Taiwan, this Japanese language drama is also based on the manga by Nakajo Hisaya. Horikita Maki plays Ashiya Mizuki, a Japanese girl who has been living in the U.S. until she sees a young man named Sano Izumi (Oguri Shun) compete in the high jump on television. She begins to idolize him, and decides to move to Japan so she can attend the same school. The catch? Izumi goes to an all-boys school, so Mizuki can't be a student there. Unwilling to let such a trifling thing as being the wrong gender stop her, Mizuki disguises herself as a boy and enrolls at the school anyway. Written by Karumi

The beginning of my love for J-Dramas...
10 January 2008 | by sparkplugminuetSee all my reviews

... started with Hanazakari no Kimitachi e (or rather, "That one good show I can't pronounce the name of.")

Now, several of my friends regularly scour the Internet in search of good Asian dramas to watch. Until recently, I have been very skeptical of the shows they watched (ProDai, 1 Litre of Tears, Hana Yori Dango) and even somewhat looked down on them and the shows. Yes, I was pretentious.

Until one day, a friend of mine was describing this scene in a television show she was watching and I couldn't stop laughing. I knew that I had to see this show. So, when I asked what channel it was on, she replied "Well, it's from Brandon" (the catalyst for this WHOLE obsession with Asian dramas). And then I knew I had been converted.

Let me tell you, this is an excellent show. It's funny, smart, sincere and awesomely awkward. If you're wary about watching J-Dramas or still aren't convinced that it's a legit form of entertainment (which I totally was), this will change your mind. Yes, it's (loosely) based on the manga, so the acting is a little over-the-top and the scenarios are unbelievable, but that's just the awesomeness of Hana-Kimi. All the actors are perfectly cast in their roles and the script is witty and hilarious. Yes, you will actually LOL. I do. Every time. And yes, you should find someone to watch it with so you can grab and squeeze them when it gets just too cute (which it does).

Moral: Watch. LOL. Cry. Squeal. LOL more. Be a better person.

Plus, the soundtrack is sure to get you in a good mood, without a doubt.
