Already a successful television series in Taiwan, this Japanese language drama is also based on the manga by Nakajo Hisaya. Horikita Maki plays Ashiya Mizuki, a Japanese girl who has been living in the U.S. until she sees a young man named Sano Izumi (Oguri Shun) compete in the high jump on television. She begins to idolize him, and decides to move to Japan so she can attend the same school. The catch? Izumi goes to an all-boys school, so Mizuki can't be a student there. Unwilling to let such a trifling thing as being the wrong gender stop her, Mizuki disguises herself as a boy and enrolls at the school anyway. Written by Karumi

User Reviews

One of the best J-drama I've ever seen
26 November 2007 | by stressed_alienSee all my reviews

To be honest, I don't watch too much Japanese drama - most of the series that I had seen were those which were really good and worth watching. I'll usually do some research before deciding which one to watch. Hanazakari No Kimitachi E was one of those drama. Watching the 1st episode, I was stuck until the end of the series. Maki Horikita and Oguri Shun played their parts very well, but I must say that Ikuta Toma was the one that really stood out. In my opinion, he was the "X-factor" of the show. However, besides these 3 people, other actors/characters also made a great impact to the series, such as the 3 dorm leaders and the aura boy. Combined with great plot, hilarious comedy and cool soundtracks, you cannot afford to miss even an episode. I strongly recommend this romantic comedy to all of you out there who love J-drama, and even to those who had watched the Taiwanese version of this series because this one is better.
