Hana Yori Dango and Hana Yori Dango Returns

Hana Yori Dango- 9 episodes based on manga "Hana Yori Dango" (Boys Before Flowers) by Kamio Yoko.

Since I havn't read the manga I can't compare which between the two, "Meteor Garden" or "Hana Yori Dango", made a better adaptation. My inspiration in watching this is that I get to see Ikuta Toma in the sequel. It was dragging at first because I already knew the plot..poor girl getting the red note from F4... yadda yadda...enemies to lovers...but before I knew it I was caught in up in their world again. And I got teary-eyed like three times, when she and then her family have to endure hardships.

Hana Yori Dango Returns- 11 episodes

Makino now had to prove their love against all odds. The drama is heavier. It was an exhausting, emotional rollercoaster ride that I just want to give them a smack on their heads. If not for Shun Ogiri I wouldn't be able to finish it. But still, it was way better compared to "Meteor Garden II" in terms of continuity of the tone and treatment.

I thought this was just another drama that will be locked in an attic in my mind, but to my surprise I kind of missed watching the show particularly the antics of Makino and Dyoumji. It kinda grew on me. Superb acting by those two.
Well we get to see the gang again next year, woot~ probably for the last time~ sniffs~ in the movie "Hana Yori Dango Final".
