Am I the only one who didn’t know that Hana Yori Dango has a sequel? The manga is called “Hana Nochi Hare ~HanaDan Next Season~” and is written and illustrated by the original mangaka Yoko Kamio.
So, there you have it. I guess she got tired of the one billion remakes and decided to give the world something newish to obsesses about.
The synopsis from AsianWiki:
10 years have passed since legendary F4 members Tsukasa Domyoji, Rui Hanazawa, Sojiro Nishikado and Akira Mimasaka have graduated from Eitoku Academy. Since their departure, the school has been on a steady decline.
Correct 5 is formed at the high school with Haruto Kaguragi (Sho Hirano) as the group’s leader. They are worried about the school’s steady demise. They decide to find deadbeat students and kick them out of the school.
Haruto Kaguragi likes ordering stuff that makes him look bigger physically. He uses his butler’s name for his online orders and receives the items at a convenience store. Oto Edogawa (Hana Sugisaki) works part-time at the convenience store. She also attends the same school as Haruto Kaguragi. Oto Edogawa is actually from a poor family, but she pretends to be from a rich family to fit in at school. Her fiance is Tenma Hase (Taishi Nakagawa) and he attends a rival high school.
I’ve never been a Hana Yori Dango fangirl which might be due to preferring Rui and the two other guys to the very problematic Domyouji.
Here’s the preview:
Am I going to watch this? Probably not. Well, not unless I hear really good things about it.
Boys Over Flowers Season 2 premieres on April 17th on TBS.
