Utada Hikaru – Flavor Of Life -Ballad Version-

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.

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.

Random Musings – Hana Yori Dango Part 2

Very quick news item:

  • It was announced today that the Hana Yori Dango j-drama will be getting a second season (or as they call it, Part 2), set to air in January of 2007. This is good news for all you fans of the series or of Matsumoto Jun/Oguri Shun/whoever and couldn’t get enough of the show. I just hope that they don’t end it as cheesily as the first season did.
