    Some group is planning an american version of Hana Yori Dango to be released on the net... until I see it, I won't believe it.

    Your link is dead.. What?? There are so much version of this story already.. I thought most countries have their own, including mine(which is crap, oops sorry)..
    Oh, please.. I wonder if people never be bored with this kind of stories.. Oh, Maybe i'll take a look just for their casts..

    yeah the link is dead, but there was another article about it on DramaFever.

    I meant, could they ever pull it off. Remember, if you love shoujo, or asian drama- one thing you've adapted to is to take things at face value you know? Like you have to accept plot devices for the good of the show, vs the "realism" of western TV...

    so I don't know if they can pull it off, or even if they will, they will have no market for it.

    I just finished I'm Not An Angel. I find it so much better than Nana. Of course, there is always this shoujo 'I love you so much that we have to break up' required writing phase that I never understand but the manga is so cheerful that I forgive Yazawa.

    Now you got me interested. Did you read Paradise Kiss by Yazawa, btw?

    Well I can't promise you anything since I know you are a big fan of Nana. I don't remember why I stop reading it but the story didn't interest me that much after a while. I'm Not An Angel is quite a classic shoujo so don't expect big surprise but a nice story. From what I understood Gokinjo and Paradise Kiss reused some of I'm Not An Angel characters with more a fashion theme that is absent in the prequel. Since they are short, I will probably read them in a near future.

    do try Paradise Kiss. And the anime of it was gorgeous too. I didn't like the movie adaptation though, since they changed the ending. And a big part of Yazawa's writing was in that ending. Her style, her way of portraying reality- that's why I love her works.

    Maybe an old news : The mangaka Rei Toume (from Reimei no arcana) starts a new serie in next issue of Cheese.

    I think phio_chan followed Arcana, I did not really start it myself.

    Anyone read Skip Beat? Suddenly have interest in it because the promise sounds interesting but I need second opinion.

    Yeah, I read her Reimei no Arcana. http://mangahelpers.com/forum/showth...na-by-TOMA-Rei

    What do I think of Arcana? The original promise was interesting, but along the way somehow I lost my interest. One factor might be the rare release (not blaming the scanlator at all, I was late at catching up too) and due the plot speed raised too fast IMO. Other than that artwork is quite pretty.

    I did. Very similar to what I feel about Arcana as I wrote above, but I think it's worse with Skip Beat. I find the last few chapters boring, too slow, and too much talking that it hurts, lol. Still I finished the old chapters pretty fast when I first got into it, the arcs were interesting and funny and awesome.

    Don't give up yet, phio-chan.. Though I've read spoilers for Arcana and I don't like how it goes, but who knows?

    The recent chapter for Skip Beat is also getting interesting (more like, this is the part I've been waiting for years) so there's still hope yet...
    But yeah, the first time I read Skip Beat, I finished 11 volumes in a day. It was that good, IMO.

    So it seems the opinion for Skip Beat is slightly polarized. I think I will give it a try for couple of volumes.
