[Discussion] Himitsu no Hanazono

Post by yukino2002 » Jan 11th, '07, 10:28

A drama about an OL who works for a ladies' magazine. Year after year, she spends her birthday at work, and when she finally finds the guts to quit the job, she ends up being transferred to the Manga Department of the company and is put in charge of one of the best selling mangakas, Hanazono Yuriko. When she goes to meet Hanazono sensei, she finds not one female mangaka but a group of four brothers in a nice condo.

This series started pretty well for me. I even thought maybe it was based on a manga and although there is a manga of the same name, apparently, it's not the same thing. It's pretty funny and the four brothers seem to be promising characters to get to know.

I can't wait for the next episode.

I loved the first episode, it was really funny, and the characters are pretty interesting. I have to see the second episode before I can tell if it's good or not, but it has great potential :-)

The "Moeee" part at taxi was awesome :D

The first episode was great! I hope the rest of the series is as funny! And it's nice to see Sakai Masato finally getting a leading role--he usually plays supporting characters.

and it was so funny when the four brothers tried to trick Kayo into opening the present but Kayo resisted. They seemed so disappointed.

well, every character is just one of a kind, I will definitely watch ep2=)

@_iris: For the concept of "moe", I've just read (coincidence!!? :roll ) this morning two interesting articles by John at Ask John, here they are: [url=http://animenation.net/news/askjohn.php?id=831]What is "moe"?[/url] and [url=http://www.animenation.net/news/askjohn.php?id=1348]What is Moe now?[/url]

One of the best comedies this season. There's a personality in the four brothers for every single viewer, that's what I like xD I.e. the weird one, the talented/mature one, the hot one, and the cute one. I especially enjoyed the second episode when they bought up the Otaku thing :lol

This is the whole url make sure you open it in IE browser or it won't work.

http://clubbox.co.kr/towa

Then go down to about the ninth category it should look like this

As for me I can't wait to see what strange happenings await us in episode three. The brothers are so funny. I love how they know they are funny too! Like when they were all sitting around the table laughing about how she might open her present in front of her boss.... little did they know! :lol

I really liked Sakai Masato in Dr Koto 2006 so it was one of the reasons why I started watching this series. I'm glad there are dramas out there that have lead guy characters who aren't what's usually considered as drop-dead-gorgeous. And in a romantic comedy no less! His eyes are enigmatic though---so intense!

The episodes are really corny (especially the scene at the end of episode 3!) and for a romantic COMEDY there's few scenes worthy of laughing over (although some situations do give rise to amusement ^^) but I'm intrigued by the storyline (namely, that the main romance will be between her and Sakai Masato and NOT Kaname Jun). No offense to Kaname Jun, he does have his good moments on screen, but I'll never warm up to his eyes. They always remind me of the eyes of a dead fish ^^

haha yeah the last scene from episode 3 was so corny but i can't help but want to see the next episode to see how their relationship progresses. i really think the lead actresss is kinda pushing it wiht the emotions sometimes though. it's not very haha funny but it's enjoyable in a way. the fourth brother really is kinda annoying with the way he always cocks his head before he walks away. he really looks like a girl sometimes. oddly, the person i'm most attracted to in this drama is sakai masato. but they dress him up so frumpy sometimes. he's only supposed to be 33 not 50. and the pajamas he was wearing in the preview for next week's episode!! it's so different seeing sakai masato in a romantic comedy. i'm so used to him being the serious yamanami from shinsengumi.

well here's my favorite shot from episode 3.

So, having seen the 4th episode, what do ya'll think? Who will Kayo end up with? Satoshi (Kaname Jun), who has the good looks going for him even though he's kind of a jerk, or Wataru (Sakai Masato), who obviously is much nicer although somewhat enigmatic?

Or will the gods of dorama decide to play a joke on us all and pair her with Osamu (Ikeda Tetsuhiro), who takes so much obvious pleasure in giving the poor girl a difficult time? (Please, no. He's hilarious, but...no.)

My greatest fear is that this drama will end up with her not paired with anyone. Those kinds of endings annoy me to no end.

I'm enjoying this show a lot. It's a little corny, but I wasn't expecting anything serious. The only thing that I'm not liking much is the subplot with Kayo's old boss, Ryoko. It's not all that funny.

Oh, and my vote goes to Wataru ending up with Kayo. More chemistry there, I think.

I hope Wataru definitely. Kayo and he seem to have similar shy, sweet uncomfortable personalities. A good match.
plus he wasn't part of the whole hand in the pocket kiss business which was really crummy and callous

I really like this series! Being fan of shoujo mangas and all the stuff concerning that, it makes me feel really happy to watch this series' plot!

I'm also on Wataru's side, Satoshi is too found of himself, and he's a playboy, while Wataru seems more sweet.

I am into ga-san paired with satoshi.

I guess I am so much old school-er. Because I think Wataru is just too old for her, and I think there's something about wataru that makes him so gloomy that we might not known yet. Beside, despite the cool pretend, I think satoshi is also in need of love and attention.

Anyway, I have a hunch that it will end up with she pairing with none of the brothers. Which I find still bearable (though I strongly opposed it) if I think they might paired ga-san with osamu (OH....NO!!!)

I have really no preference...
Yes, pairing with Osamu is the one I dislike the most... But maybe with a little relooking ?

I think Hinata is a little too young (but who knows...) the choise is between Satoshi and Wataru, and I though since begining Wataru seems a little too old... But japanese marriage between a man (8 years ?) older than the woman is not an exception.

I though also that the repetitive meets between Kayo's ex-boss and Satoshi is something we should be aware... They meet very often, and I heard in another drama "3 coincidentally meets in a day is smth like fate"

I love this drama and whichever Kayo will end, it will be fun.

wataru's not that much older than tsukiyama. she's 28 and he's 33 and that's pretty much their real age in life also. wataru just seems so much older because of the way they dress him.

Yeah, he's dressed frumpy, probably to symbolize how he aged because of having to take over the family when their parents died. Hopefully, they'll get around to telling more of his story in future episodes.

I've seen publicity shots of Sakai Masato wearing more fashionable clothes, and he looks more his age in those.

Having seen episode five now, I'm at a complete loss as to trying to predict what will happen or who will end up with who. Which makes this an excellent series, I think! The next episode looks like it'll be quite good.

have you noticed that sakai masato's lips always look liek they're pressed together but that's just how they are. at first i always went "why can't he jsut relax his lips" but then i realized that's just hwo they are.

i wonder what's behind that door they keep on zooming in on. i wanna know!! oh and i don't like the young girl that likes wataru. she just bugs for some reason

I am afraid they will not arrange any couples in this drama. :-(
it's a dilemma~~and getting more complicated, that's the writer and director want, maybe
esepcially, I can not get the idea about that girl and her boy friend(who seems to be quiet popular with teenagers), and the woman at the food store...

anyway, I like this comedy. you can always find some funny scences in every episode, which you want to replay several times,
in the ep05, the liitle Osamu is really funny, how can they find a boy has the same look

i really hope that nothing materializes between satoshi and ryoko...that just seems too odd to me. i would rather she reunite with you know who :)


and ladyusagi, i kind of agree about that young girl, but i feel like there's something more to her. maybe some backstory that needs to be revealed.

Oh! How I enjoyed episode 5!!! Tsukiyama's is slowly starting to be part of their family, it's really nice, and I love all the funny situations they put her in LOL! But it shocked me seeing how Osamu got impressed by Tsukiyama's old boss, cos she knows loads of stuff about anime and manga, and she seems to suit him LOL! But she's in love with Satoshi and still can't forgot her ex-fiancé... plot is getting complicated, Ne?

Did anyone notice Hongo Kanata's expressions? xD At first he was trying to memorise and was mouthing Shaku Yumiko's lines, and by the end of it he was scratching his head, seemingly in confusion..I finally see why people find him cute! :lol

oh i can't wait for episode 8. i hope they show what's behind the locked door. i didn't expect to like this drama so much because it's so cheesy but it's so cute and fun.

Oh god, that cracked me up big time when they made the POT reference, Osamu's "SNAKE SHOT" was just too much.

Yea, I'm really in love with this drama, I can't really peg down what it is, but all I know is it's great.

of course why not watch this subtitle from the greatest subtitler of all, dancestar24. I'm already on episode 5 in one day and I love it. Could you believe it? just in one day lol. You'll definitely not find this type of drama anywherelse. Everyone dresses weird, the Tsukiyama looks ditzy and weird faced, the concept is different (I've never heard a jdrama that had to do anything with mangas. Yeah, I guess I don't have much experience). Everything about this show , is watch-worthy lol. Keep up the good work dancestar24.

OMG who has watched episode 8?!


Just when kayo is starting to like Wataru...he goes and does that! :cussing: :cussing:
This is 11 episodes right? oooh~ next episode it seems like there will be a love triangle between Satoshi-Ryoko-Ichiro/Tanaka-chan!! Plus Wataru is hiding something about Hinata!! Whatever, I don't think the drama in "HIMITSU no Hanazono" can beat the screen-at-the-screen drama of "Hana Yori Dango 2 RETURNS"

Come on! Hana yori Dango 2 is sooooooo flat! I don't understand why people like it. We all know how it s gonna end anyway< I watch it when I have nothing to do, hoping the next episode will be better which never happens, and always feel like I really waisted my time afterwards.
On the other hand, I love Himitu no hanazono because it is really untertaining and mysterious at the same time : we really don t know what s gonna happen next<
I really don t like the actress playing Tsukiyama, but the plot just keeps me addicted.

I'm curious as to what's in the room.

My theory is that it's stuff from their parents.

LOL at the POT reference. I didn't get it at all until you guys brought it up :)

I guess it's appropriate as they were both in it ... I had totally forgotten...

I just started watching this drama, not even up to episode 2 yet xD But episode 1 was soooo good! I love Kayo's facial expressions in the dress.

The brothers seem so weird...hope to know more about them later.

at first i didn't want to get into this drama because i thought the story line was kinda iffy from reading about it, but it's actually really good! im curious how "hanazono yuriko" is going to evolve.

I just watched it!!!
OMG...OMG...at the scene where young wataru just got back to school and met hinata, I thought "oooo....so Hinata was adopted?"

but at the end...the very end of the preview, wataru said something like "Omae wa oretachi no honto no..."

WHAT??? honto no WHAT???? Otouto?? Then what's all the secret??

Gaaaa...I am sure I won't be able to restrain myself from watching RAW for eps.9, though it means I only understand parts of it :crazy:

My theory,
they are all adopted. Hmmm... seems that the dad is good at picking babies, maybe related to Johnny? :lol

Well, the secret of the identity is out now, now on to their real secret ...

awww poor HANADAN. Yes it is cheesy and you totally know what is gonna happen next(especially if you know the story already) but...I dunna know. I'm sucker for shoujo-manga and it's cheesy and predictable story lines. That is what Hana Yori Dango and HYD2 are, just.....live action.
I like the Yumiko Shaku. This is her first leading role so I give her some slack. She's always done supporting or just an extra. She is a little too skinny though....but she's funny.

My biggest concern is how they are going to do the ending. From what I've seen so far and only 3 episodes left, I'm worry that they will give us a crappy and somewhat reasonable ending. Right now it's getting too complicated and the epuisodes are only about 40-55 minutes long.

hey, i've noticed that is how it is in Japan. The dramas that have the popular stars are usually the ones with higher ratings. Dramas like Iryu and Unfair are always overlooked because they are more complicated, like Himitsu. You're right, Himitsu should be on top of Hana Yori Dango, but this is Hana Yori Dango's second season. Lol, you must remember, there are more girls living in this world than guys. Of course, Hana Yori Dango 2 will get higher ratings. lol. Either way , don't count out Hana Yori Dango. It's really funny sometimes and the situations are very well developed. Think of it as another adaptation of a good manga. lol

I really liked this show. Now I know that Hinata is adopted. I didn't understand at first why the oldest brother didn't know about the kid when he got back from school. Thanks guys lol. Can't wait for next episode

Yeah, that's my guess too, although:
Maybe Wataru's not adopted, dunno, maybe it's just one of them or two...
Don't compare it with Hanadan they're completly different things, and although in that drama they're keeping the essence of the drama, I don't really think we can know what's gonna happen, cos they have been changing the situations a little bit, and they can't put the same end as the manga, cos they already used that on first season.
