HAPPY 2010! This year marks the 7th anniversary of hanayoridango.com! And i finally finished watching all three live action dramas based on this anime. Maybe because I watched it last but i absolutely fell in love with the Korean version named "Boys over flowers". I'm going to create a whole new section dedicated to this show!!
Unless you have been living under a rock, you will know that because Hana Yori Dango is sooo popular, there are currently three live action series based on the manga. The first one is called Meteor Garden (based out of Taiwan) - two series and a movie. The second one is from Japan, titled the same as the original manga (Hana Yori Dango) - two series and a movie. And I've recently found out that there is a Korean series as well named Boys over Flowers.
Welcome to Hana Yori Dango dot com, a site dedicated to the hit
Japanese Anime & Manga: Hana Yori Dango !
After being a big fan of shoujo anime for years, I've finally found
the one single series that's destined to be become my favorite - Hana Yori
Dango. Unlike the typical boy & girl romance story, Hana Yori Dango
actually contains a sense of reality, it portrays a story that can actually happen in
the real world.
Hence, in order to spread the popularity of Hana Yori Dango, I have
embarked on my journey to create the perfect informative site for Hana Yori
Dango fans. I will keep on updating any bit of news concerning HYD I
collect in the future, so don't forget to come back and visit!. ^__^
