Ugh, I can’t be bothered remembering the entire name (it’s soooo long) but I think it’s Kimitachi no Hanazakari e – I think.
EDIT: LOL I WAS CLOSE – it was Hanazakari no Kimitachi e LOL hana kimi – I dunno why I think it’s kimi hana -.-)
I finally watched it! Heard lots of stuff about the Taiwanese version but I doubt it’s as good as this one – the music really good for one (minus Otsuka Ai’s Peach – my God, I always skip the end credits because it – I can’t stand her voice – the only song I can stand is Planetarium, but that’s because it has decent lyrics and tune).
I had to download the OST for this song:
It’s not an MV, it’s just the mp3 with random pics. But I really loved this song while I watched it. Background music FTW! There’s also a more upbeat version of it, this is the orchestral one – amazing how the tone can change when you change the tempo and instruments. But anyway, there are lots of beautiful songs on the OST – I’ll stick to Ikemen Boogie Nights though, it really stood out from the other instrumental pieces.
Anyway, what is Hana Kimi about? Well I’ll briefly say what wikipedia says – it’s not the same as the manga, but the basic storyline is that a girl disguises herself to attend an all boys’ school because she wants to make Sano Izumi (her idol and lifesaver) smile and high jump again. He stopped high jumping due to an accident but it also seems that he has his own problems as well. At the same time a guy named Nakatsu Shuichi falls in love with her but thinks he may be gay (ORE WA HOMO JANAI! D:) because of his attraction towards her.
I had no idea that Ikuta Toma played Nakatsu Shuichi – I must say, he’s awesome! He brings so much comedy into the drama and I love it when he talks to himself via hand actions – it’s like comical miming, and he does it so well. I think from all of the dramas I’ve seen with Oguri Shun, I must say this drama has made me realise why he’s so popular in Japan – I thought usually, he was best looking in Hana Yori Dango as Hanazawa Rui, but after watching Hana Kimi, I realised how authentically Japanese he was. After realising that, I understand his success, and I can’t wait to see more of him. I can’t wait to see more Ikuta Toma as well – he was really good.
I don’t even have to say anything about Horikita Maki – she is amazing always. Apart from Horikita Maki my other favourite actress will be the girl who acted alongside Ninomiya Kazunari in “Stand Up!!” and “Ao no Honou” (as his sister) – Anne Suzuki. They might not be super slim or tiny thin – they are healthy, and cute in their own ways.
