Title: Hanazakari no Kimitachi e (Hana Kimi!)

Episodes seen: 7

I'm in love. With this show. Hilarious, dramatic, engaging. I'm glad I looked this up.

Episode 8 aired this week (haven't seen the english subs yet).

I didn't know Horikita Maki ("Nobuta wo produce") was in this show and the instant she popped onto the screen I was "Nobuta?!" and that was enough to make me watch it. Oguri Shun (Sano) and Ikuta Toma (Nakatsu) FTW. Nakatsu (played by Toma) is bloody amazing and one of my favorite characters.

I don't know how faithful the Japanese version is to the manga (nor the Taiwanese version for that matter) because I've only read volume 1 and half of volume 2.

Only question: how do they not question her gender with her girlish voice...by that age boys' voices crack, don't they?

I'm waiting for the subs to finish, otherwise, how could I not watch this?  I mean, it's called HOTTIE PARADISE for crying out loud.  OYEAH!

P.S. Niner and Erig LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE this show.

wtf, don't go misrepresentin', mouse!

This show is a friggin' sausage-fest and pretty much then only thing keeping me watching is the lack of serviceable Jdrama recently. I've already plowed through HYD and GTO, so this, sadly, is the next best thing.

The dude who plays Nakatsu does make me laugh though. Kinda like a Japanese Jimmy Fallon, if Jimmy Fallon was funny.

No duh it's a sausage-fest...it does take place in an all-male boarding school.
