Abandoned at the age of five by her mother, deaf and mute Mahiru Morita's life has been filled with sorrow.

But hope springs eternal as she dreams of one day finding her true mother living in far-off Tokyo. Can her dream come true? When young Kazuki, a young man attending university in Tokyo, comes to visit Okinawa on a scuba diving expedition, a life-threatening incident brings the two young hearts together.

1. Best out of the 3. [Rating: 8/10]
If i'm going to be honest the only reason I thought about watching Shin Hoshi no Kinka was because of Fujiwara Tatsuya.
Him being my second favourite Japanese actor. Narimiya Hiroki being my first. In my opinion this series isn't draggy at all.
There two episodes where it does get a bit draggy but it's not so much you give up watching. Apart from those two episodes it's become one of my favourite drama's. I have also learnt a bit of sign language. Since I have seen this, The other Heavens Coins and Orange Days. But I dont wish to take up sign language.
But it is beautiful and I love watching Mahiru. Her not speaking does not put me off at all. For everyone who's see's this. Dont miss this drama. I'm glad I didn't. Because It's become one of my favourites. I also liked how they linked the first two Heaven's Coins with number 3.

2. One of the best of 2001! [Rating: 10/10]
OK, so I never watched the original nor its sequel, so go ahead, flame me... But I still think this was one of the best doramas I've watched. Hoshino, in his first leading role, shows a lot of promise to be a great actress. The supporting cast works good for their ages and don't seem to "pretend" to be something they are not.

And the best part of all - this one ACTUALLY had a GOOD ending. I won't say GREAT since the ending situation isn't so good (see for yourself!) but it's still satisfying.

The theme song as sung by Hoshino is great and has me hooked as well. Too bad most idiots who think this is Rocky III may overlook it.

I'm starting to like Hoshino Mali. Although she's not that pretty but i think she's kawaii. This drama have a wonderful theme song, it's so touching yet it's cute.
My fav. part is when Mahiru jumped to the sea after she run to chase the ship. Then Kazuki also jumped out from the ship. It is so romantic and touching.
The ending is also not bad compare to the old version, Shin Hoshi No Kinka have an ending which we can call it a happy ending, which is yes. Kekek.. Well it is happy. They are together! What else that we can ask for.
So i do enjoy this drama. So you guys gotta check it out as well.

A surprisingly good series with a fast-moving plotline and some cute and memorable characters. At first I thought that this was going to be terrible. Another Heaven's Coins? After the second one, I was truly afraid to see what this one would turn out. It was good though and I enjoyed the characters and their motives. It was nice to see that each character had their flaws, but they were able to overcome it or were able to deal with it so that the audience could feel sympathy for them in the end. They really kind of grew on you.

However, in accordance with the first one, this one is also pretty melodramatic, a soap opera of sorts. If you enjoyed the first one, you should check out this series. The cliffhangers at the end of each episode will definitely keep you wanting more.

Jan 2004: I found that some of the storyline very familiar....two guys like the same girl, then another girl( basically a bit evil ) likes one of the guy, on the other hand, another guy ( innocent type )tried to save the evil girl cos he likes her....and so the story goes on...everyone hurts and hurting each other, finally.....u gotta watch it yourself.

I was expecting something horrible cause of the disaster that was Zoku hoshino kinka (part 2). this was o.k Worth watching infact. At least we are introduced to new charecters added to a new scenario makes the dorama good.I hope i don't find it good simply because the second hoshinokinka was so diosapointing. But watch this it is worth watching.

another verison of Hoshi no Kinka, but with a new lineups of casts...what to say? I just luurve Fujiwara Tatsuya and Okina Meguni looks deliciously evil..Hoshino Mari, well err..so gullible and Yoshizawa Yu, hopeless..nonetheless, i stucked through the end becoz of Fujiwara Tatsuya..what a guy!
6. Comments by zhirong [Rating: 6/10]
Hoshino Mari. Well that's all I can say about this series. She's pretty good in it and convincing as a deaf/mute girl. However the plot of this series is pretty much predictable and gets boring in the middle of the drama. However towards the last episode it picked up again.
7. Comments by 206 [Rating: 4/10]
It took me a while to get through this one. Some of the early story line seemed too forced and lost my interest. It also jumps around a lot between the characters. The characters seem a little young in mind. I did follow through and see the end which was just OK.

mari is very cute in this altho she cant talk, she conveys alota emotion with her facial expressions. only seen 2 eps (all i can get), the bitch girl is simply psycho, cutting her wrists, wtf?!?!

This drama is the best Japanese drama I've ever watched. The story is great, the pacing is fast, and the actors are good. Some scenes are so touching, they made me cry a lot.

I liked the spin-off to Heaven's Coin but it can't beat the original X3 It came close but I like the whole relationship plot better in the originals.

To be honest, this drama caught my attention the most out of the three. I most definetly recommend watching it.

Not bad. Definitely didn't have the impact as the first one. And the ending was too nice.

The actors don't catch me. Part 1 and 2 were miles better
