Hi! Everheard of the Live Action adaptation of the popular manga hanakimi? I bought a copy last Saturday and I was really rolling from laughing too hard (lolz). For those who dont know, the story is about Ashiya Mizuki. A Japanese girl who lives in US and currently idolizes a high school high jump idol Sano Izumi. For unknown reason, this Sano suddenly stopped joining high jump competitions, which left his fan, Mizuki in deep regret. So she went to Japan, disguised herself as a boy and went to all boys' school where Sano studies. Just imagine the whacko :) Here is a link of the videos just in case you want to watch: www.crunchyroll.com/showseries?id=4839 This series is really good! There is a Taiwanese version but Im not much of a fan :)

Sure no problem! I hope you wont forget to comment :) Oh by the way, the Japanese version is slightly different from the manga. If you want exactly like the manga, you can watch the Taiwanese version. Its also available in crunchyroll.com

Okay, so I watched four episodes of the Japanese version so far, and I can't get enough! :P Maybe I'll check out the Taiwanese version later, since it's more like the manga, but I'm really enjoying this one right now! *crazy fangirl squeals* Seriously, I should be in bed by now, and instead I'm up watching this. Hehe.

Hi JowJie!! I've watched it too!! On crunchyroll of cos ^_^ I prefer the Japanese version to the Taiwan version too... i guess cos the Jap version is slightly different from the manga so it's still interesting to watch even if you've already read the manga. The Taiwan version follows the manga very closely, almost word-to-word... You're a member of CR too? what's your username?

Hi a-year-older! I love the japanese version better too, its much funnier! I'd seen the Taiwanese version , but I didnt finish watching coz I find it boring...no offense to fans, it just follows the manga too closely that you'll know what will happen. :) My username is sundaesoda :) How about you?

I've only watched the taiwanese version. Wait! Are you talking about the series that Ella from S.H.E, and some of the Fahrenheit members acted in? I'm a fan of S.H.E, so that's one of the main reasons that I watched that series. Enjoyed it very much ^___^

Oh I was really talking about the Japanese version ^_^, but I'd seen the Taiwanese version too. Yes I heard her name is Ella. The one who played Sano is cute :)

I've read the manga and watched some of the drama. The drama is kind of weird though, the school is suddenly "hot guys only?" Oh well, at least the drama justifies Mizuki's stalker-ish ways.

hello.. i've watched the Taiwanese Version of this, i can't actually compare cause im still not watching the Japanese Version. Although, i've watched the Taiwanese Version only, i bet the Japanese Version is much better! i love Oguri Shun and Hirokita Maki!! wee, i super love Oguri Shun because he's like a prince for me, i adore Hirokita Maki when I watched Nobuta Wo Produce [together with Kame of KAT-TUN and YamaP of NEWS] And there's Tomo Ikuta too, a Johnny's Artist.. ^_^ I would buy dvds of this if i have money already.. =)
