Being the big Ouran fan that I am, I had to check this episode out.
Before watching the episode to refresh my memory and because I just love Ouran, I re-watched the first episode of the anime and it doesn’t matter how many times I re-watch Ouran I always enjoy it just as the first time I watched this awesome anime.
After re-watching the first episode of the anime I proceeded to watch the first episode of the J-drama…I was a bit worried because I didn’t know how well it could translate a series like Ouran into the drama realm, to my grateful surprise it translated just wonderfully.
The first episode of the J-drama was pretty faithful to the canon material but it wasn’t quite the same as to what happens in the anime/manga, which it wasn’t bad at all because it made me feel like watching something new but familiar at the same time…I hope that made sense.
The acting was great!! All the cast portrayed their respective characters fantastically, especially Yamamoto Yuusuke. Yes, he doesn’t look 100% like Tamaki, but he sure knows how to bring Tamaki’s personality to life. He has absolutely captured Tamaki’s essence.
The first episode of this J-drama was very enjoyable and I’m already looking forward to the second episode. I re-watched the third episode of the anime in preparation for the second ep of the J-drama and I hope it is just as fun as the third episode of the anime. ^_^
Yey!! I'm glad you make the thread, destiny4ever!
Now we can discuss this awesome live-action to our hearts' content.
I have to agree that Yusuke isn't similar in anyway to Tamaki in appearance but the personality... geez~ he really captured the baka prince's personality.
I have to say this though: HITACHIIN TWINS! YOU GUYS ARE SO ADORABLE!!! >.<
I'm sorry but I just have to let the world know that I love them the best with their "little devils" personality and naughty smiles. I hope in the upcoming episodes, they'll start on their pranks! XD
The first episode was indeed very enjoyable (and hilarious too ) and I can't wait for the second eps to be subbed.
Episode 02 = nipples festival. ^_^
Waiting for the subs.
The excess of Nekozawa is bothering me. I hope they don't strech it when he gets to be the central story.
Another great episode! It is amazingly how faithfully they are adapting Ouran and at the same time they manage to bring some new and fresh to the table; that’s why although I know what is coming and I can enjoy the episode without a problem. As I said before it’s like watching something familiar but new at the same time.
Yuusuke keeps impressing me with his acting , he’s Tamaki! He can perfectly portray Tamaki’s funny/baka side as well as his cool/awesome side.
Haruna-chan is a great actress as well; I especially enjoyed her acting during the scene when she gives Tamaki the evil/mad glance; it was exactly like in the anime.
I have nothing against Kenozawa but the excess of him is beginning to bother me as well, he is turning into what Renge was in the anime, an annoyance. I would easily do without him in each episode.
It seems the next ep will be an original one but I don’t remember that story happening in the manga or anime.
Oh well, I'm not exactly bothered by him, but I'm just wondering why he always appears at peculiar time.
I want to give comment for Honey-senpai too! Finally, we can see another expression of him. (I'm tired of seeing him being "kawaii" all the time.)
The twins are great too.. Tamaki definitely fell for their pranks. XD
I love the part when Haruhi glared at Tamaki and Tamaki seemed really terrified. oh, and also the part when Tamaki called Kyouya "okaa-san". Kyouya's reaction here was different from the anime but it's really funny coz he had the expression "who? me?" but then giving it no thought and the others just stared at him. XD
Hmm, I think the next eps will be different from the anime too... coz the part "Haruhi is going to quit". There's no such thing in the anime right? But they have the Bali costume and I perfectly remember that in the anime they wore such costume. (or am I mistaken to think it's Bali costume? )
i hated the lobelia part on anime so much.
I hope they can do a great work on it, if they decide to do it.
I wonder if they will try to find japanese girls with low tone or if they will use studio effects.

I watched the episode 3 without subs.
I have no patience.
i think it was all in the anime. I'll check later.
I bet the kiss scene was awkward to do.
Anyway, the begining made me laugh with these 2 scenes:
1- The twins and Honey-senpai looked like girls here (and Kyoya looked hot).
2- Mori senpai has such big big big hands...

The subbed one is already out and I can say that it's ... AWESOME! XD
Well, the story is different from the anime but I'm not disappointed at all since it's still a good story.
It's really funny when they asked Haruhi to pick one of them as her teacher but she rejected them all (though all of them are top students). XD
The twins are adorable as usual but I got to say that Kyouya is the best in this episode. I love his evil schemes and the way he tilts his glasses.
And Haruhi actually did the kiss scene. It's all because of the baka prince.
I can't wait to see next eps! It's about Renge... Oh well, I don't like Renge but it means next week it will be more focused to Kyouya...
I also saw in the preview that Honey-senpai looks angry. Oh wow, I really want to know what happen.
(Btw, do you notice in the Mori-senpai and Honey-senpai pic there that Mori-senpai used his middle finger? XD)
yeah, i noticed the middle finger, that's why i captured that shot.
He looks so serious, yet he uses the finger.
The subs weren't available last night. Thanks for telling.
It wasn’t a real real kiss, it was more like just a brief touching of the lips. But I do agree that it must have been awkward for the girls.Quote:
As for me, I thought Tamaki looked good. It seems that just like in the anime, the first host I’m going to fall for is going to be Tamaki. I think he is great!Quote:

I was surprised to find out that Honey and Tamaki were such good students. I didn’t see that coming.Quote:
I think that scene with Honey looking all angry and dangerous comes from the movie that Renge makes the host club take part in. Iirc, Honey was supped to be mad and aggressive towards Haruhi.Quote:
I agree this episode was great ; I’m enjoying watching this J-drama very much.
And I know I have mentioned this before, but Yuusuke is so amazing as Tamaki. He is a very talented actor indeed.

I liked the episode. I still laugh from small things, cause it's kinda ridiculous to see a real person doing some things from the anime, like all the poses that Tamaki does.
I still don't like Honey-senpai in live action, though. I guess i miss the voice from anime too much.
And, the next episode is that beach one. One of my favorites. I hope they keep the Kyouya and Haruhi scene. ^_^
I LOVE this episode!!
It's always amusing to see how Kyouya reacts to things. He's so AWESOME! XD
But I was creeped out when I saw that smiling Kyouya with flowers and cats. It's just so NOT him. o.O
But the rest of the time, I enjoy every moment he appears with that scheming smile.. Ahh~ Kyouya-sama! (I think Renge is influencing me too much. XD)
Haruhi oh Haruhi... You still don't know how dark Kyouya is. XD
Anyway this time I really like seeing Honey-senpai's angry face. I'm sick of all his cuteness and I think this scene is the best:
Oh, I can't wait for the next eps!! I hope the scene of Kyouya and Haruhi in the room still exists.
wow, i just watched the raw for episode 5 and i am wiping my tears right now.
Not cause it was sad, but because i was lauging too hard in the end.
The last minutes were priceless.
And i almost had a heart attack with the room scene. Too much sexiness in the air.
I still have to catch up, but i was able to watch episodes 7 and 8.
Ep 7 was the gang meeting Haruhi's father. They left lots of small things out, but i still liked the flow.
Ep 8 was about Nekozawa's sister. For the first time i liked him in this liveaction. The hair was a problem here too, but the episode was really cool.
I hope my connection let me watch the rest till 11.
