Hana Yori Dango et al..  
For the first time EVER in Hana Yori Dango's multiple incanations, I LOVE Domyouji. For the FIRST time, I actually sympathize with him and WANT Tsukushi and Domyouji to get together!!!

In the anime, I hated him.
In the manga, I hated him.
In the Taiwanese drama, I hated him.

But in the Japanese drama, I LOVE him.

Matsumoto Jun completely changed Domyouji for me! He's definitely a really good actor, and I think he brought to the character something that nobody else was able to do. FINALLY I like Domyouji!!!! Ahhhh I love HYD, no wonder it was one of my favorite series of all time!! (Now if only my other favorite-- Marmalade Boy, would be made into a Japanese drama!!)

Damn, and 1 littoru no Namida is breaking my heart from the inside out. I think this is the best drama of the season, hands down. But it's SO depressing. The thing is, though, that it makes me FEEL. I've never watched so many good dramas in one season (HYD, Nobuta, 1 Littoru..), but still been moved by one so much more than the others. I love things that make me feel real, true emotions for the characters. I know that the ending is going to kill me, but I can't help but fall in love with it anyways. This drama is the BEST.

Oh, and giving props to Nobuta wo Produce~ Nobuta Power Chuunyuu!! =D

PS.. Anyone have the copy of the class song (9th of March, I think it was called...) that they keep running in the background of 1 littoru no Namida? I wonder when the single comes out or if it's out already...

Downloading Hana Yori Dango, I'm starting to ♥ this drama. I'm waiting for 1 litre of tears to come out on d-addicts.


Dramas are total ♥

1 liter of tears is out on D-addicts, but it's better to get it from jpopsuki. They're caught up on the english subs up to episode 6 (Episode 7 was last week's episode). ^^

;O; HANA YORI DANGO!!!!! I love the drama so much! Matsumoto Jun deffinatly helps to make Domyouji's character really likeable...at least more generally likeable...Wah I want to watch those other dramas, but I don't have enough space on my hard drive to keep them >.
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on November 27th, 2005 11:28 am (UTC)
Watch them!!!! You can always watch the episode and then delete it afterwards!!
St.Animestanime on November 27th, 2005 04:22 am (UTC)
um..I have the original version of 9th of March..do you want that?

Yay Domyuji~!♥ I love how he always mix up words and made no sense at all..~XD
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on November 27th, 2005 11:14 am (UTC)

Wow, you actually watched the Taiwan version! I got turned off after a while, oops. Matsujun sure did a great job!
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on November 27th, 2005 11:15 am (UTC)
I only watched a little bit of it, because we were fansubbing it.... but when we stopped, I stopped watching. At the time, there weren't any other sources for it, and by the time they were available, I'd lost interest. I thought it was good, but not really all that great.

ooo, yes... isn't Hana Yori Dango sooo good?!?! I had first downloaded it for the heck of it, but I liked it so much that i downloaded all the episodes. Bye-bye to my hard drive space...same goes for 1 liter of tears too taking up space. Episode 7 almost made me cry. But I know episode 8 will make me cry.
yungumii on November 27th, 2005 05:07 am (UTC)
XD i never watched the anime or taiwanese version of HYD..and never read the manga, but i am in love with the j-drama SOO mucchh! i'm obsessed with it right now..XDD
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on November 27th, 2005 11:15 am (UTC)
The anime has been one of my top 2 anime for probably about ten years now!
KikyoYuiladyseiryuu on November 27th, 2005 05:14 am (UTC)
Yay for Marmalade Boy!! I would love to see that live acion!! Do you know if they ever made Maison Ikkoku into Live Action?
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on November 27th, 2005 11:16 am (UTC)
Marmalade Boy was a taiwanese drama too, but I didn't like it AT ALL. X_x

I don't know if Maison Ikkoku was.. I heard once that there was a live movie, but I'm not sure if it was rumor or not. I would LOVE to see that as a drama!!
Jane Doe: Thinking ~ _huhamberhimeangel2chaos on November 27th, 2005 05:53 am (UTC)
*Squees* They're making a Hana Yori Dango Japanese drama? Awesome! Thanks for mentioning it, or I'd have never known. ^_^ (I hope some group subs it eventually..)

And I completely agree about Domyouji..it took me a looong time to warm up to him in the manga. When I first started reading, I was really surprised when I saw that he eventually became a love interest..and even more suprised when I saw how popular he became in general.
angel2chaos on November 27th, 2005 05:55 am (UTC)
Oh wait, it is being subbed. ^_^

He does the Domyouji look so frikkin' well. ♥ I've never been a huge fan of Domyouji, but I love it when he makes an ass out of himself. Makes me giggle. =D Tsukushi is very cute, and very very awesome. Also, the outfits are soooo much better in the J-drama than the manga/anime. Of course anything is better than that hideous polka dot dress she wore on Domyouji's boat.
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on November 27th, 2005 11:23 am (UTC)
LOL Nomg I know what you mean! I mean.... GAH What was the artist thinking when she drew some of those things???? Maybe she just looked at Paris runway shows and completely ignored what the rich people are REALLY wearing. X_x

I was shocked when her makeover actually made her look REALLY rich, and not like a clown like in the manga/anime. XD
athenazandrite on November 27th, 2005 07:16 am (UTC)
I've been fangirling this since the first episode. Nav's been on top of it since it started and I adored all incantations of it despite strange style. It's my favorite shoujo Anime/Manga. Domyouji's so much... er... MEANER in the drama O_o But yeah, he's pretty all right. Disturbingly so. I remember him always going on about how good looking he was and in the latter part of the manga he actually did start to appeal to me but I saw him in the anime and I was all... FINALLY he has something to brag about. He'd better, his money and his looks will save him with his horrible attitude. XD

Also, Tsukushi ♥
athenazandrite on November 27th, 2005 07:17 am (UTC)
Almost forgot. But Nav says there'll only be like nine episodes!! T_T NOT GOOD ENOUGH!! I am an addict I need at least SIXTY! ^_________^

I dunno if it's that song...?! (from 1 littoru no namida)

And I agree...Nobuta, HYD and 1littoru no namida are very, very awesome dramas!!
I just hope they won't be so short... (some of my favourites had about 10 eps or less and Kindaichi even was only a one shot T.T)

*hugs x kisses*

Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on November 27th, 2005 11:27 am (UTC)
OMG This is that OTHER song!!!!! I'm gonna CRY!!!! *hugs* It's not the song I was looking for (I want the one they sing in the class competition, that they keep playing in the background in the later episodes), but I'm really glad to have this one!!! ♥ I feel like crying, but it's a really inspiring song.

I heard HYD was only going to be 8 episodes? But I dunno... maybe 10 or 11, but I doubt more than that (;_;). Most dramas are really short like that, but for their shortness they really pack a punch!

美夢: Jam *_*_miyuchan_ on November 27th, 2005 12:47 pm (UTC)
eehehhe I suppose I don't count since I liked Tsukasa also in the manga (in the anime I liked him less since he appeared too stupid^^;)
But MatsuJun is very good, maybe the research he did reading all HYD volumes in one night gave him the help to portray him well.
Kamio sensei too wrote a letter to the tbs staff saying she was so happy because Rui and Tsukasa were portrayed the way she hoped for them to be..
And I sooo love both of them.
And HYD will be 9 episodes...but I hope for a second serie!!!!
The last one will be aired the day I arrive in japan..*insert fangirling screams because in 19 days she'll be in japan*
Anyway much love for MatsuJun^_^
....Oyster.  @_@;alieu on November 27th, 2005 10:29 pm (UTC)
Yes! MatsuJun is ♥! I felt the same way about (okay, I saw the taiwanese drama first, so in my mind I still think of him as "Jerry"... stupid F4.) his character, and I was kind of skeptical about how Jun would play him because he didn't seem to fit the type... I mean, he's so skinny and even when he looks pissed off, I can't imagine him winning fights or anything... even his character in Gokusen didn't fight all that well..! But oh man. So much ♥. He works miracles, that boy!

And Nobuta has my vote for best drama of the season. :D 1 Littoru is great, and it's very touching and sad, and ofc Ryo is very pretty and perfect (yes, perfect, because he's made up and his character is supposed to do everything right... which gets kind of annoying to me o_o; ), but it's just... too much angst for me. X3 It's the ultimate Japanese Drama, complete with romance, tragedy, an incurable illness, and high schoolers. I just can't get too much into it... even watching Summer Snow was pushing my angst limits. ^^;;
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on November 28th, 2005 04:51 am (UTC)
LOL Summer Snow is another one of my favorites!! ♥ If it makes me feel sad, then I cherish the feeling ^__^
