If you loved the first season, you'll adore this one!
6 March 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This sequel to the first season of Hana Yori Dango lives up to its expectations and even exceeds them! If you've seen the first season and loved it, this second one will just blow you away. Characters are adorable, music is fantastic, and the plot thickens delightfully!

As a follow-up to the first season, it does extremely well, picking up where the first one left off. If the opening of the first episode is confusing, the episode was especially extended to bring the viewer up to speed and explain the things that have happened in the time between the two seasons. So, no need to worry about being lost! You're caught up and drawn into the action again in no more! Like in the first season, you'll be on the edge of your seat, dying to see the next episode.

Of course, HYD2 brings back the beloved characters of Makino Tsukushi, Tsukasa Domyouji, Hanazawa Rui, and the rest of the amazing cast- and even more lovable characters are added to the mix, noting the well-played Shigeru. Each role is played flawlessly by the actors, with the viewer drawn in to what's happening before he/she knows it! There is no one in this series that you can dislike because they are all such likable characters. And better yet, characters with small roles in the first season have gotten bigger ones this time, with them growing and making the story that much more interesting.

And as always, the soundtrack for the season fits it perfectly and will be stuck in your head before you know it. Of course, the opening is colorful, joyful, and a great way to start an episode. The two main songs for this season are: "Love So Sweet" by Arashi (opening) and "Flavor of Life" by Utada Hikaru

You will love this season perhaps even more than you did the last one. You won't regret watching Hana Yori Dango 2 Returns! I guarantee it!
