Move through Fantasy and Reality while watching Asian Drama!
Description: Based on a popular comic, this hilarious comedy follows the chaos, troubles and friendship at a boys' boarding school after a girl-disguising-a-boy joins. Mizuki ASHIYA (Maki HORIKITA) has just come back to Japan from California where she was raised. She fell in love with a hopeful high jump hero Izumi SANO (Shun OGURI), but he has quitted after an accident. As she wants him to go back to the sport once again, she enters the same high school as a boy! With a short hair, flattened chest and lowered voice, she starts sharing the same room with Sano at the dorm. Living in a dorm at a boys' high school is hard enough; changing clothes, bathrooms, etc., but things get even more complicated when Shuichi NAKATSU (Toma IKUTA) has a fancy feeling about Mizuki while Sano notices Mizuki is actually a girl and falls in love with her but she doesn't notice he knows!
Hana Kimi Review
One of the few dramas I’ll rate a 10 out of 10 for, if I could I’d make it a 9.6/10 as I don’t like to give perfect scores on dramas but this drama is so funny and entertaining that it’s tough to go lower then a 10 on. The story is unique, not something you’d expect to be that funny but unlike a lot of dramas this touches on a taboo topic in Japan which is homosexuality and makes it not only acceptable but you really don’t even notice it. The laughs will just keep coming show after show as well as mixing in some good romance/dramatic scenes to keep you glued to the screen. The cast is an all star bunch, you got Horikita Maki (Kurosagi, Densha Otoko, Nobuta wo Produce) and Oguri Shun (HYD, Gokusen, GTO) leading the way. Not to mention rising stars Ikuta Toma (HYD 2, Maou), Ishigaki Yuma (Gokusen, Waterboys), Mizushima Hiro (Mr. Brain, Tokyo Dogs) and Kyo Nobuo (Koishite Akuma, Wakaba). The music is pretty good, the opening song is "Ikenai Taiyo" by Orange Range and the ending song is "Peach" by Otsuka Ai along with several good insert songs.
One of the best dramas you’ll find out there, insanely funny, great story, epic cast and enjoyable music to go along with. I highly recommend to old and new D-Addicts..
