thanks so much for the translation, it's greatly appreciated - and it clears up some questions about the ep 6 preview. :D

has anyone checked out maki's official site?

:lol

Because she has a Hana Kimi mini-site attached to her official website, and there are video logs and blogs, some of which talk about filming HK.

Would anyone be interested in translating this particular video? (She talks about episode 6)

about the spoiler for episode 7......LOLOLOLOLOLOL. Oh dear, some factions in the fangirl community will die of fanservice JOY. I'm taking each episode of HK as it comes, and stuff like that doesn't bother me. Who knew that Shun would be getting all the action in this series? I'm sure it has somethi...

there was ainori stuff in episode 4, but during the entire bath scene in episode 5 the theme song from ainori started playing in the background as nakatsu and kayashima started talking about how complicated nakatsu's love life was, and then the chart popped up with all the arrows pointing from each ...

Hey, don't feed the trolls on the thread. They're just taking easy potshots. And Laer, I'm a girl, so that would mean I'd be your babymommy. Heee. Man, that Ikuta Toma - I like the fellow, but sometimes, *shakes fist* (if you google for ikuta toma's jweb translations, you'll know what I mean, I can'...

before you guys start raising the pitchforks and swear drama loyalty to other shows, while I agree that it is frustrating that there's been fewer 'ship positive moments with Sano/Mizuki, consider the fact that the producers have to work with Oguri Shun's rather crammed work schedule. He just finishe...

Okada Masaki (Sekime) was in Seito Shokun! with Maki-chan (and Yuu Shirota is in it playing a PE teacher!). I enjoyed the show, especially as it went on, but it might be a little slow/grim for some viewers. Maki, Masaki, and Hongo are really good in it.

oh. wait... NO WAY? Matsujun was in tokyo tower movie?! how is that guy staying alive?! I'm assuming you're referring to the nekkidness and adult themes in Tokyo Tower? Matsujun stays alive because of his keen powers of evil, obviously. Evil and fantastic jewelry. ;) And because us Virgos always kn...

Lily, I know there was a drama called Tokyo Tower, but I was referring to the movie of the same name starring Matsujun and Okada. :)

You could feasibly draw one line from one Japanese actor to another, and you'd end up with half of Young Japan having some sort of six degrees relationship (in this context, I mean professionally). For example, using Maki - >(Teppan Shoujo Akane) Tsukamoto Takashi -> (stand up!) Oguri Shun -> (stand...

Yeah, the actor who plays Umeda wears contacts. When he appeared on BISTRO SMAP with Maki, his eyes were naturally brown.

At the wedding, everyone also finds out that Sekime's wife is also several months pregnant. :D and in magazine of the special HK chapter, the cover was of ...

if you visit maki horikita's official website, there's a new blog devoted to hanakimi up. She recently wrote about a filming location by the seaside (I think.)

Interesting for future plot developments.

After episode 2, I can say that I like Umeda-sensei very much. He's not as 'pretty' as his manga counterpart (more handsome), but casting for manga bishounen is v. difficult, especially if you age the characters in a realistic manner. It is possible to share a bed with someone and not have sex with ...

what a difference HQ capture makes - I'm rewatching episode 2 right now and giggling hysterically... Nakatsu thinking that he's gay and the overabundance of pink hearts? PRICELESS. Also, the William Shakespeare bust in the garden? Nice nod to the Bard's crossdressing motifs and romantic comedies. At...
