This could be because although I LOVE the 2007 Hana Kimi, I am treating Ikemen Paradise 2011 (as I'm calling it) - and the new Ouran and You're Beautiful - as a completely different dorama, but with the same plot: Girl pretending to be a boy. So yeah, I disbanded all disbelief, sat back adn watched and I was totally blown away from it, I love how different it is! Different school, different circumstances (it's closing) I love that they're like the bottom of all schools. I love how the actors have made the characters their own, I love that Sano has some feelings, I love he accepted to participate but then didn't - YAY! Go Sano! I love Shohei's take on Nakatsu, I love Tomo, I love the new Senri, I like how they kept the original soundtrack, nice natsukashii there! I LOVE Oscar! Especially his eyes! Not so keen on the new Blossoms though, but I'm not a liker of girls so in ANY situation it takes me ages to like a girl (in RL too!) so yeah LOVED IT!
For me there's like a BILLION Positives AND... about.... 3 or 4 negatives! So here I go = with screencaptures!! xD
BUT first with the negatives:
1. I hate the opening and ending theme songs.
2. Maeda just made me cringe all the way through it, her voice is horrible. And you could so tell it's a girl, atleast Maki scruffed her hair up and pulled off a realistic and believable boy voice and body language. And infact, I don't remember her in this! I was too busy laughing and looking at everyone else! I can't even tell you one line that she spoke! =S
3. I dislike how they all became friends quickly, I think friendships should've been created slowly.
4. Maeda just told Sano straight away why she was there.. I would've prefer to it be discovered again...
Screencaptures Part 1
Some talk, hopefully it made sense:
TOMO!!! *dies* I really like him as this character. Lately he's been doing really tough roles, so it's nice to see him playing someone silly, infact, this'll be his most light hearted role ne? xD
But my heart did go dokidoki at the bench scene though when he was on her xD
Look at kawaii Yukito Nishii running!! --- Oooo side note! He's only 2 years 1 month and 13days younger than me!!!
Haha I prefer this Nakao Senri me thinks xD
LOVE the doctor! He is more gay than the old Doc but he doesn't have Old Doc's eyes.. BUT OSCAR DOES!!! xD
I like how Kayashima and Nakatsu have a proper relationship in this dorama. In Hana Kimi 2007 they only had like 2 scenes together and never really showed their friendship, Kayashima was really the outsider in the old dorama =[ Poor Yamamoto Yusuke.
If they need to be 'spoiled' tell me xD
I'm getting fanvid ideas xD
