First Kiss [ファースト・キス] As long as, Inoue Mao is in the cast, I'll always say it's the best! She is a good actress. Althought this drama has a slow storyline, Mao-chan made it more interesting. Inoue in a 'bitchy' mode? I'll definitely watch it! :)
Hotaru no haka [蛍の墓] very sad... :( the story is so great. it provided the japanese situation during WWII. I had a different view because I thought Americans were just the only ones devastated... at least there were two perspectives now. :)
Inoue Mao [井上真央] very cute, unique, funny! I LOOOVVVEEE her! I hope I can go to Japan and see her in person. I think she's perfect for the role of Makino Tsukushi, ne? I love her facial expressions in HYD 1 and 2. She is like a living anime' because of her expressions! Her tomboy role is refreshingly funny. It was not surprising that she won Best Actress Award. She was superb! ^____^ YAY! I want to meet her! Ganbare, mao-chan!
Matsumoto Jun [松本潤] I am IN LOVE with HIM! yay! He has this bad boy look that really suits his roles. He is a great actor as he is serious to his acting career, not to mention his singing career. ^___^ I like him in Gokusen but I love him in HYD ^___^ I think he and Inoue Mao-chan are great together. I had some difficulty in watching Kimi wa Petto because he was an underdog there. Oh well, he really is cute! I am looking forward to the HYD Final movie. :)
First Kiss [ファースト・キス] Rating: 8/10 (Watched) Mao-chan is the best. Mio and Makino (hana yori dango) are extremes but she perfectly played the parts! yes! I love her the most in Hana Yori Dango, though. :)
Hana Yori Dango [花より男子] SOOOPAAHH KAWAII! ^__^ [Rating: 10/10] This is the best drama! I've watched the anime' and Meteor Garden and I think HanaDan is the great product of the two previous versions. ^___^ The screenwriter really did a great job because he modified the storyline to fit the modern times, ne? I can't imagine Makino using a recorder to communicate when in the present situation,mobile gadgets are the current trends. YAY! Saiko! I can't wait for the HYD Final movie in April 2008! I LOVE THE DRAMA AND I LOVE SHARING THE ADDICTION WITH EVERYONE ELSE!
