looks like lots of people didnt enjoy this episode to much. I can understand where you are coming from in terms of it seeming like a filler episode but i still enjoyed it and am looking forward to the next episode as much as ever.

is the subbed version up on veoh yet??

to go a little off topic does anybody know where I can find videos of shun and jun or the who HYD gang???
The streaming videos have been taken offline. There's some on addicts that's subbed.
But you can probably find most files on clubbox. These box has some files

@hamstaball: yeah, i think the japanese drama section is OK...some ppl might not like it if u keep comparing the two dramas in here, so might as well make a new thread for that to be safe :D

My thoughts on episode 5

I liked the first few eps since I like Shun Oguri and Maki Horikita but this ep had some outstanding moments.

1) I lauged really hard during the Sumo contest -- the two guys slapping each other was too funny.

2) I know the Drs character is gay but he certainly has chemistry with the journalist

3) The Ainori parody was cute too

4) Are all those boys being infatuated with one another normal in Japanese school culture or are they just playing it up cause that is an arc in the manga.

5) I was really touched during Sano / Oguri scenes in the end. Like when he hit the pole and was just holding it.

ack

then when he was preparing for the next jump and it was just a long period of "thinking" -- wow you could really feel it.

then

then he actually kneeled. !!!!!

By the end of that I felt really bad for him -- actually I am a little depressed from all of that.

6) I hope Nakatsu ends up with the Nice girl from Blossom.

7) Do you think Nakatsu's 6th sense is telling him Ashiya is a girl -- I mean he did envision "him" in a bikini.

8) Whats up with Sano's Rival from the other school's hair? I mean I swear it is combed into his face in chunks. Makes me think of when your getting your haircut and the stylist pushes all your hair into your face to get it out of the way. I really hope that not what is hair normally looks like... or is it like that cause of the Manga. Some said that characterizations that work well in manga don't always translate well into live action


I would love to hear what you guys think!!! Sorry it is kinda random its late here and I need to go to sleep ... but not before I find a preview or two to cheer me up ;)

maki news!!!

taken from tokyograph.com: Following up on its research about summer fashion, Oricon conducted a survey to see which celebrity hairstyles people want to copy this summer.

Among women, the number one answer was Maki Horikita, who has adopted a short, boyish look for her role in the "Hanazakari no Kimitachi e" drama series. Second choice was Kumi Koda, followed by Yuri Ebihara, Masami Nagasawa, and Namie Amuro.

Meanwhile, men are trying to take after the "fresh" look of Satoshi Tsumabuki. He was favored over even Takuya Kimura, who ranked second. Hiroshi Tamaki and Joe Odagiri tied for third, with Masaharu Fukuyama ending up at #5.


...cool ne? congratulations pori-chan! :D

3) The Ainori dating game was ep 4.
4) not sure what you mean...they're just acting like normal horny high school boys I think?
6)
Nakatsu won't have any girl at the end. He dated a St.Blossom's girl but broke up with her cuz his mind was on Mizuki all the time
7) yea Nakatsu seems so be a female detector. His body seems to be able to detect females even though his brain tells him otherwise.
8) Kagurazaka Makoto (the rival) had short hair in the manga. Similar to Tennouji's hairstyle.

Well, could possibly somebody translate this preview of Ep 6 as I do not speak japanese ?

Many thanks in advance:

海の家での滞在を終えた芦屋瑞稀(堀北真希)は、中津秀一(生田斗真)ら生徒たちと寮へ戻ってくる。陸上部の合宿に参加していた佐野泉(小栗旬)は、瑞稀たちよりも早く戻っていた。海の家から合宿中の佐野を訪ねた瑞稀は、佐野を追い詰めているのは自分だと思い、佐野に会うのが怖くなっていた。

 その頃、佐野はまだ跳ぶことはできないが、必死で練習に打ち込んでいた。そんな佐野を、カメラマンの原秋葉(紺野まひる)が狙う。すると、そこへ、神楽坂真言(城田優)がやってきて「足癖が悪い」と言い捨てる。いつものふてぶてしい態度だったが、この一言に佐野はハッとなる。

 そんな折、瑞稀の両親がアメリカからやってくる。突然の来訪に驚きながらも、久しぶりの楽しい時間を過ごしていると、中津から呼び出しの電話が。断れなかった瑞稀は、夕食には戻ると母に約束をして、中津が待つ場所へ。ところが、そこにいたのは、佐野だった……。

For japanese speakers, could you please tell me if Toma spoke the Osaka's accent in the drama ?

Thanks for your confirmation.
As I am not japanese speaker, I cannot hear which accent it is ans say this person is speaking like in osaka or like in tokyo.
This is just for my general knowledge and just to know if the drama is well adapted...

sorry if my question seemed stupid :unsure:

I really hate to say this....but....Nakatsu speaks with....tokyo accent.

I hear they chose Toma for Nakatsu because Toma is good at soccer,
but I don't know if it is the reason....

I have never read the manga so it doesn't matter of me at all, but I am sure those who love Manga hate this fact...

I think Toma has been doing really great job!!!! so I hope you still like Toma/Nakatsu!!!

Whoever posted those "ghost-guy" pics is awesome.
Serious. Yamamoto Yusuke is growing on me.

HE'S MY FAVORITE CHARACTER NOW :D.

Lolololo. Dang, anyway, you guys like posted an extra 10 pages while I went through my facebook phase lmfao :lol.

Lots of different opinions, from what I read :p.
For me, it's like this:

If they don't have the ball scene in this season, or the second [?]...
I will shank them to pieces.

Tried to translate this even though my japanese is not that good... :roll ... here is what I got:

"Ashiya Mizuki (Horikita Maki), after the stay on the beach house, returns to the dorm with Nakatsu Shuichi (Ikuta Toma) and the other students. Sano Izumi (Oguri Shun), participating in in the summer camp , was quickly getting back to Mizuki. Mizuki, who went from the beach house to Sano's summer camp, was involved in her own thoughts after watching Sano's last jump. She didn't find any fear in Sano.

At that time, Sano couldn't make the jump yet, but was devoting himself to practice. It is that Sano photographer Hara Akira (Konno Mahiru) aims for. With this, until here, Kagurazaka Makoto (Shirota Yuu) just listened but didnt care when it was said [your manner of stepping is bad]. This is an always undecided attitude, but in Sano the heart becomes a single word.

At such occasion, Mizuki parents arrive from America. On the sudden and also unexpected visit they are having a nice time, like they haven't had for a while, until Nakatsu calls. Over dinner, not being able to refuse, Mizuki promises to return to her mother while going to meet Nakatsu who awaits her. But at the location, who was there, was Sano... :O

Exactly !!! I am getting annoyed by those meaningless scenes, the comic/humor scene became too exxagrated :crazy:. Sano-Ashiya is developing a bit, but none of them in this epi (actually in manga, they are always together) and it's 5th epi already, only 5 left, how are they going to show us some lovey-dovey scene ? I really want to see Maki in romantic scene for ONCE. In Nobuta, mainly friendship, In Kurosagi, they weren't even hug once. :cussing:. BTW, I want Shun to break the cool-cold-shell and be madly in love. God, I am tired of his image.

I'm no longer eager for next episode. My heart went all the way to Coffee Prince. :salut:
Hahahahaha! Asking for lovey-dovey scenes, you must be delusional. Based on the past episodes, I don't see any inkling of a romantic relationship developing between Sano and Ashiya. Ashiya - female stalker disguised as a boy ---that's scary. Sano - choker. Both are LOSERS. Just keep on watching the Coffee Prince - it abounds with filler scenes. Maybe these will fill the gap between your ears.

hmm, well, hope that toma can at least speak a lil kansai in the drama. (STILL LOVES HIM NEVERTHELESS!!) haha :cheers:
By the way, does learning japanese takes a lot of time and is it hard? I wanna study it next year so i'm asking your suggestions..

P/S: Sano bumped into ashiya and nakatsu and that's why he's pissed? :scratch:

For those of you who wonder how Kagurazaka looks in manga mode, just click here.

As for the Sano/Mizuki pairing...have you read the manga? Of course they're a pairing! One of the sweeter pairings too.

And in regards to Nakatsu...
I read that the Sakura Alliance is showing up in the next episode...? Does that mean that the Nakatsu thing is happening? If so, it would be awesome, for sure!!
I agree that Episode 5 seems like filler, but I think the emotional parts (Nanba and Sano scenes) won me over. I just hope they stop with the contests.

EDIT: Oh! And I watched the entire Taiwanese series, so I'd be glad to hop over to that thread and make comparisons :-)

Wow, I thought all those contest scenes were so funny, specially the sumo one... of course everything is over the top, thats why it is funnier :lol In every epi there has been these kind of scenes going on, dunno why epi 5 is any different... Think they use them to remind people that the boys are still young and besides the seriousness of some topics (romance, gayness, whatever), boys are still boys, they are reckless and are still learning... It also shows what Mizuki got herself into by living in a boys dorm, she is not with Sano all the time, so their relationship is growing slowly.

About Nanba & Nakao, Nakao & Mizuki developments, found those nice as well. Cant say the same about Nanba and his 1st love, for me those were kind of boring moments, I dont care if Nanba can be a serious guy, it is not that important for his role in the drama and it doest make a difference...


@xsakaiie
Yeah, Sano knows Mizuki is a girl from when he misheard Mizukis conversation with her brother :D

Okay, everyone complaining about the "pointless contests" is really starting to bother me.

Do none of you read the manga? And for those that do, do you not remember how many contests there were in that thing? It was 23 volumes long for a reason, you know. :(

I'm sorry that you all feel they are unneccessary, but if you look at the manga and notice how much of it is filler (and bonus chapters, bonus stories that didn't even include the main characters, etc) then you know WHY all the contests are there.

I honestly really like how they're translating this series from manga to live action. And the episode where Mizuki's brother shows up had enough non-filler scenes to last a lifetime.

Deal with the filler. If you're going to complain about the show, or parts of the show, then don't watch it :(

EDIT: Though, I do have to say, the whole St. Blossom's thing is too much for me. Now THAT is extremely unneccessary.

Well, sano has closed himself off for 2 years, you can't expect him to just outright jump out and become outgoing. Also, he's not the type of person who falls in love with just ANY girl. There's tons of girls after Sano, he's just not interested. Just because Mizuki is a girl doesn't mean he's gonna go love sick over her. Sano's the slow type that needs to build up the relationship.

As for coffee prince, I am watching it now. I don't think its as good as hanakimi though. Hana kimi made me laugh in every episode but coffee prince is more dramatic. Actually I can't even understand why the guys would like her. She's a tom boy. She doesn't carry any aspect of a girl and she eats very gross. I don't think its very believable for 2 hot guys to fall for her.

But Mizuki, you can kinda tell she's a girl. Mizuki has a heart shape face which male don't usually have. Also she's too cute to be a guy and she sometimes acts like a girl (forgetting she's suppose to be a guy). Like when she hops around in glee when she heard sano called. When she stirs the okonomiyaki bowl. She stirs and holds the spoon like a girl and on top of that, she's so short. Course...so is Nakao, but Nakao is abit taller by 2"

About Toma having no Kansai accent. I don't think its an important issue. It would be nice if he did, but its not a big issue. Most importantly is Toma acted well as Nakatsu.

About ghostboy, have u people seen ghostboy's father? :D this is probably :offtopic: , but I started to watch "Himitsu no Hanazono" now, and was so surprised to see him there as well, and to recognize him!! A nice surprise though

silentblvd wrote: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 finished performing in As You Like It, and I guess he's preparing for another play that will be showing during the second half of HK (could someone confirm this for me? My Japanese comprehension skills are non-existent), and when you factor in travel, rehearsal times, his time on the Hana Kimi set is probably more limited. The scriptwriter and staff all have to consider that and work around his other commitments.

I mean, yes, episode 5 was lighter than air in the plot device department - but
what Sano and Mizuki moments there were - were significant. Everyone more or less knows there's 'something' special about the two of them together, as Sekime passes his phone to Sano, as he's run out of things to say, and who does Sano ask for when he finally talks on the phone? Mizuki.

Nakao grilling Mizuki about how she feels about Sano and comparing it to his feelings for Nanba sempai - and Nakatsu protesting why his arrow points to Mizuki, and then the rest of their dorm coming in and talking about Sano and Mizuki, as if it's just accepted fact.

And Mizuki's cute little dance of excitement when she finds out that Sano called her, and then WILLINGLY LEAVING THE BEACH to go look after him when she finds out what a hard time he's having at training camp.

And then taking it so hard and so personally that she might have ruined his life? So it looks like she pulls back in the next ep, which is such a typical selfless i'm in love with you so I don't want to hurt you anymore move in drama.

They have OTP written all over them, guys. It's just slower going, and it seems that with most jdramas, they usually start up with a frenetic pace, but then sort of slow down, catch their breath with a filler ep in the middle, and pick up again by the end.
I luff you. Be my baby's daddy/mommy? 8D

UHG. I love the contests, OKAY? I watch it for the CRACK, so I can laugh as hardcore as I can before I pass out from it. If you don't want it then it's all mine and you can't have any, you ungrateful people who shun Awesome Mindless Fun. xD

@ HanaKimi series haters: None of your evil here!

OH !

Series is both singular in the collection of items as a whole, and plural in pertaining to the individual parts making up the group.
Serie isn`t even a word.

I just want to be fair while giving judgment on a drama. I love this drama, really, if someone knows me here must recognize how crazy fangirl I am, esp when I fall head over for Maki chan :wub: ..

So dun't make it sound like I'm a hater when I'm saying sthing I dun't like about the serie !!

I like the cracks, the comic, funny moments in a drama, but it has limit. 5 episodes already ,& I still dun't get to see what I want to see, or in other words the feelings I have when I was reading the manga. I'm not shameful or watever to say that I want some develops in Sano & Mizuki becuz it's what the whole Hana Kimi about, not the contest between the dorms, right ??
As I said, everything should have a limit, fans may enjoy it at 1st becuz it's funny, but soon later if it continues in the same track, I'm not sure if Hana Kimi could attract much fans as the debut.

well, watever, up to now Hana Kimi is still my fav drama this season, no doubt.

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't post the url) he teases TERRIBLY with vague spoilers for Hana Kimi and doesn't follow through! I mean, I know, he can't, but...aaagggh, I want to know what happens next! And apparently, Shun *is* doing some thing in Osaka, because Toma mentioned how he wouldn't be seeing him for some time, so who knows what that'll mean for HK?

And though I've been trying to stay away from comparisons of any kind (I have read the manga, watched the TW version), it's true that the J-version is keeping essentially true to the spirit of the manga, which was was full of competitions and filler stories (one volume had the second half devoted to the story of Umeda-sensei's first boyfriend!) and that the entire 23 vol. series spanned I believe only 1 school year (or was it 2? whatever it was, it was ridiculously short) at Ohsaka Gakuen, and things developed really slowly - like you would have to wait for three or four volumes until you found out what happened in a story arc.

seirin the ainori parody IS in episode 5!
remember the part where they were in the spa and all these guys kept popping out of nowhere commenting about the pairing? Nakatsu => Mizuki => Sano and also the whole love triangle with Nanba senpai
Contests are love and hate. Most of the time they're funny but I seriously would like to remove St. Blossoms out of the way! hahaha :lol

Nomanymore, the hater comment was towards the user feeling. 8D I'm still having some exasperation towards people not liking the silly contests and making such a big deal out of it. I've long expected the romance as having a more underlying theme. The comedy is what draws people to watch it, so it does take up more screentime than the SanoxMizuki stuff. For now I'm happy to sit back and watch an indulgent amount of shirtless guys prance across my computer screen as I wait for the romantic bomb to drop. There's not doubt in my mind that it's coming so I'll just have to be patient.

And it's not like episode 5 was devoid of any SanoxMizuki elements. :B I was bowled over at that bit with Sano's phone conversation with Io. Was. Totally. SQUEALING. At that! Io saying how she thought Sano was extraordinary because of what Mizuki was willing to do for him had him embarrassed! Mizuki wasn't even in the vicinity! Oh God, I love me an indirect OTP moment. That alone has me going for a bit longer.

lol, maybe some people are used to korean drama, where the boy and girl occupied 99.9999999999% of the scenes and in korean drama, the rest seems to be sh*t (don't misunderstand me, I still love to watch kdrama once in a while :) ) Jdrama focus on other stuff too and what a good thing :)

About the contest, NO ONE can tell me they didn't find it ''sweet'' when the leader of Dorm 1 brought the old nanny :lol and how he got so beat up badly and 5 sec. later, he's all oh-so handsome 8) (nahh, he's not my taste) !

I wouldn't mind those funny moments, I was just hoping there were actually few more sano/mizuki scene in specifically episode 5...

remember the part where they were in the spa and all these guys kept popping out of nowhere commenting about the pairing? Nakatsu => Mizuki => Sano and also the whole love triangle with Nanba senpai
Contests are love and hate. Most of the time they're funny but I seriously would like to remove St. Blossoms out of the way! hahaha :lol
I thought the ainori was the couple contest in ep4? From the description someone wrote, I understood Ainori to be like a variety/reality show where they pick some people to try and find a partner, like guy tries to hook up with a girl. If they end up dating, they share those biscuit sticks. And sometimes the coupling end up in marriage. And it's suppose to be touching sometimes. Some girl was crying when the guy left back to Japan or something.

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 character. I'm assuming that happens in the real ainori too, with a chart recapping what's happened so far?

And then Nakatsu asking Kayashima, 'you watch ainori too?'
Very cute, Fuji-TV, and in that vein, I think the 'i have great character' shirt mostly is because ProDai was a Fuji TV production too, and I'm sure the warddrobe department overlaps. But the fact that Toma and Pi are friends, it makes an extra special injoke, considering that shirt also appeared in Prodai's 5th episode.

ep07 has a ***** scene!
(From an interview with Kagurazaka in the official website)
Q. Sano kisses Kagurazaka in ep07 !? Tell us about it.

A. It was my first time to kiss a man, and I would probably not have a next time (wry grim).
Shun-kun has kissed Toma-kun so he knew how to kiss men. I completely left myself to him :D . :P

the ainori show is like they put single people together in a bus while on a trip to many exotic/rare places. basically they go through the experience together and hopefully they will become a couple. and usually you have more than one guy/girl going after the other XD pretty confusing just like w/ sano/mizuki/nakatsu :)

hahaha omg another kissing scene?!?! this is getting a little too muuuuch!

Ah you've gotta be kidding me! Are they trying to turn this into Yaoi!!!!
Why Kagurazaka? Seems like a weird person for Sano to kiss! Does this mean sano's getting drunk again? Cause drunk sano is funny stuff - love his drunk smile ^_^
