Hmm...pcasado makes an excellent point. I think the reason why they retain the HDTV labeling is because the source file was labeled as such. In order to keep consistency with the file name, the HDTV in the file name is retained. It's unfortunate the source material would be labeled as such though. I...

Dang, I swear the students at the end of Episode 2 look like they had some wicked frat party! I never seen anything like that happen...

People harrassing the subbers? Gawd, what a bunch of douche bags. They should be forced to learn Japanese. I'm grateful to these subbers. I can wait however long, myself. Ungrateful pricks, whining like that...

Two points I wanted to bring up: 1. Even though I haven't seen HYD in a long time, I'm not seeing how it's so phenomenally similar to Hana Kimi as some people here seem to claim. Oh, wait. I DO see a similarity! It's set in a school. Whoop-di-do. :glare: 2. Why are some of the people, who whined lik...

I'm so glad the drama is only loosely based on the manga and not following it faithfully. A direct translation of long, drawn-out written material should always be interpreted when acted out, not fleshed out completely in a medium where quick cuts and fast story telling is the norm. Especially for b...

Does anyone know why it's Ho and not He? :scratch: Also I've noticed that when they do the BTS after the episodes, they call him something else...anyone know???? :blink It's spelled Ho in Taiwan, and He in mainland China. The reason is because mainland China uses Hanyu Pinyin spelling, while Taiwan...

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 co...

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: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fXf-furNA...

Puppet Princess, I salute you. :salut: :lol Rainie FTW, woo! I was watching the first episode some time ago when my friends bugged me to XBox Live. I told them to leave me alone since I was watching Taiwanese dramas (I should have said something else), and they gave me the "Are you gay?" line. That'...
