Random Musings – Hana Yori Dango Returns Edition

There’s not much going on today (Happy New Years!) so I’d thought I’d write up a quick reminder that Hana Yori Dango 2 is premiering this Friday, January 5th, at 9PM JST with a two hour special. TBS is doing tons of promotional stuff in preparation for this second series, meaning that Matsumoto Jun, Inoue Mao, and the others have been appearing everywhere on TV. Many of the commercials and promos show that Tsukushi and Rui are going to New York where Tsukasa is, and they even did a live broadcast to TBS’s Ping Pong program while they were filming there earlier last month. Anyway, Hana Yori Dango 2 is set to be 15 episodes long and the theme song (heard in all of the commercials) is Arashi’s Love So Sweet. I am tentatively planning to blog it, but that all depends on how my own schedule works out.

    Well. This will give all the JE fans something to talk about again. Like there’s ever a time where a drama showing doesn’t have a JE member in it though.

    I can’t wait for the second season! Hopefully they won’t abuse an insert song again like they did with Planetarium.

    Sweet, can’t wait for even more realistic fight scenes!

    YES!!! I really enjoyed season 1 and am anxiously awaiting season 2. Hopefully someone will eventually sub it.

    15 episodes! HUZZAH!

    (Curses why does this happen during the whole internet “blackout” thng??? *cries*)

    And is that Domyouji & Makino posing for a magazine there? xD Or is it supposed to be something that looks like it but is actually something else? Hmmm. *ponders how much of the original storyline from the manga the jdrama is intending to follow*

    But ohhh this Friday… so soon x.x

  • January 2, 2007 at 10:38 pmMoonDoggieBuiscuit

    Classic! I saw the anime version but well… it just didn’t click on me…

  • January 3, 2007 at 3:39 pmcharlie

    I’m so excited for this too! When I looked at the 4th pic I thought.. Jun didn’t have facial reconstruction surgery did he? But then I realized that it was Toma Ikuta, another Johnny that’s going to be appearing in the drama. =D

  • January 3, 2007 at 4:28 pmTrill

    Note: I’m just some random person who happened to be looking up Hana Yori Dango and found this.

    I have to wait for it to come out on DVD because I don’t live near Japan
