Re: Hana-Kimi

Thanks for the info. I may be able to find a site that has a DDL links too but I'll have to wait and see when they re-upload their links since they all got messed up by the savefile site.

Re: Hana-Kimi

after ouran, i was looking for another manga to fill my shoujo hunger, and hana kimi is a great find. crossdressing, open gays, and confused straight guys! the humor really gets to me, but the romance... hmmm. not yet since i just finished volume 2. you can also get hana kimi from #lurk at mirc. ja! excited to read the rest!

Re: Hana-Kimi

I find that the artwork for Hana Kimi is more focused on the guys, as they (Sana, Nakatsu etc.) seems to be drawn hotter than the main female lead. Besides, there seems to be hint of yaoi, but its not?! I thought it was an enjoyable read but it din remain impressive enough to be etch in my mind.
Anyway, for those who're curious, there's a taiwanese drama based on the manga Hana Kimi that is just aired recently in Taiwan. Will put up the link later. :amuse

Re: Hana-Kimi

This manga is addicting. Love the Dr. Umeda <3

Since Ouran was really popular, I'm hoping Hana-Kimi would get its own anime. After all, it already has its own Drama CD and live-action (Taiwanese).

Re: Hana-Kimi

I don't think Hana-kimi will be animated though. It's pretty old, compared to ouran high that's still ongoing. And the excitement for it has died down since the manga's completed.
Especially with shojou anime, they animate what's hot on the recent ratings.

I enjoyed Hana-kimi though. Very fun read. I'm interested in seeing the Taiwanese Live-action...

Re: Hana Kimi

Hrmm, It is true, Hanakimi is somewhat similar to Girl got Game.. Haha. just noticed, forgive that nonsense. Although the characters in HanaKimi are more shy and much more romantic, in Gx3 the characters seem so loud and fun, ( in my opinion ).

@ Baboysai:: Ah, I wanted to watch the Taiwanese Drama of it too. Ella from SHE is in it, and it looks reallly good. (This might be off-topic), do you know any sites that have all of the episodes subbed?

Re: Hana Kimi - Discussion

Awww I absolutely loved Hana Kimi! I read it whole in about 5 days! :P
I really recommend it to read for any shojo fans, especially people who like stories about love involving really cute characters in a quite realistic story.. +cross dressing +open on different kinds of sexuality +lots of humour :)


really Mizuki and Sano are such a cute couple :) what I particularly liked about this manga were the characters! -really sweet, really funny and really realistic at the same time (maybe apart from Kayashima! :P). and I like how its so open about gays - Umeda rules!!! :) and about hetero guys who are not afraid to admit that they like another guy - like Nakatsu (at least from his point of view for most the time :P) or Nakao (such a sweet boy :) )

I wonder if I am the only one who was not really satisfied with the ending... I really had hoped that she would graduate together with the guys.. and with all the people supporting her for it to end so suddenly was kinda disappointing for me.. well I guess I prefer happyends to realistic ends! :p

Also at least the special ending volume could have been a bit longer and more detailed! we didn't get to see how is Umeda (and if Akiha is still after him :P), Io-san, or Ritzu.. and I wanted to see Sano's dad and Shin finding out about Mizuki! :D Maybe I'm too attached to this manga, but I do admit I got quite attached to all the characters :)

Re: Hana Kimi - Discussion

If any of you don't know, Japan's Fuji TV is making their version of HanaKimi with Oguri Shun as Sano Izumi, Horikita Maki as Ashiya Mizuki and Ikuta Toma as Nakatsu. Personally I can't wait. Oguri Shun is one of my favorite Asian actors <3

If its good, I hope a studio recognizes and animates it to :D

Re: Hana Kimi - Discussion

what, how come there aren't posters for this topic??
This is such a good manga! One of my favorite shoujo, gender bender.
l like the art in the middle, cause it improved much from the beginning, but the at the latter parts, it tend to change.. but still nice.. and High recommendable!!!

I'm still wondering how come they haven't made this into anime, such a funny and good story. But yeah, they already started the drama the jap version, I've only seen the first 3 episodes, liked it, though they changed some parts..

Re: Hana Kimi - Discussion

Re: Hana Kimi - Discussion

I finished reading Hana Kimi quite some time ago and it's really good. Definitely a reverse harem and totally hilarious. There was a hint of yaoi here and there but surprisingly, I'm not turned off by it. In fact, the way it was potrayed was rather hilarious. I kinda pity Nakatsu because he tot he was turning gay and Kayashima was a hoot! I tot the ending wasn't too bad and their kids are so cute!! I suppose they could have put in more details but a happy ending is good enough for me.

I watched a little of both japanese and taiwan version of Hana Kimi but I kinda prefer the japanese actress as Mizuki better. She kinda fit the cute, pretty boy look that I imagined she should have while the taiwan actress looks a lot like a boy actually. :XD
