Utada Hikaru’s newest song Flavor of Life comes in several flavors, and the one featured in Hana Yori Dango 2 and this PV is the ballad version. Unlike her some of her other PVs which have been flashy and high production value, this feels more down to earth in showing the recording of the song with an orchestra. Of course that makes it less exciting to watch, but I don’t really mind because I love her voice and this song. I’m very curious to hear what the other versions of this song – original, karaoke, antidote mix – sound like, but I’ll probably have to wait until the single is released to find out.

Utada Hikaru’s Flavor Of Life single is due out on February 28th, 2007.

    I’ve also been waiting for some new material from Utada Hikaru. Didn’t realize it was in Hana Yori Dango but come to think about it it’s definately Utada singing. Can’t wait till next ep airs ^__^

    i don’t like Utada, she can’t hit the notes right and this song is not good as planetarium.
    i hope they are not going to play it for the whole 15 episodes

    Wat do you mean? She’s a awsome singer, and if you don’t like her why r you even viewing this page?

    Since when do you have to like something to view an web page?

    I don’t hate Utada but I admire her voice rather than her singing skills. And the lyrics take all the attention in her case.

    Yea but it’s beta if you don’t complain about it you know
    Utada has a amazing voice and if you don’t like her then just don’t leave a comment since it’ll only cause an argument if there were Utada fanz viewing this page

    lovely song that suits HYD to the T. =D
    heh XD
    I really like the laidback feel of this PV.

    I agree with Moony, the simple pv is a refreshing change, very nice. Good song too. :)

    It’s a lovely song and it fits the season well (so far) but I miss planetarium T_T

    even tho i dont really like otsuka ai…but planetarium suits the 1st season just rite….as for this song in season 2? much much better :D

    The lyrics were quite heartbreaking, though not as complex and poetic as planetarium. It says a lot about the direction the series is going.

    I’m not sure of its effectiveness as an insert song since Utada to me does not work when overused, not like planetarium did, but my opinion might change.

    As an insert song for Hana Yori Dango, it suits perfectly and my tears dropped when watching the scene while the song was playing.

    i l0ve this song. Im really happy its being playedd on hana yori dango

    The song suits HYD so well !
    I reallly like one of the translation versions, which has the sentence ” Like the magic spell doesn’t get undone after the break-up”.
    Hahaha, it reminds me that this season had so many “Thank you” .
    ….When I hear you say “Thank you”
    My heart hurts for some reasons….

    That’s so touching!
