HANA KIMI ( DRAMA VERSION )







Hanazakari no Kimitachi e: Ikemen Paradise (花ざかりの君たちへ イケメン♂パラダイス Hanazakari no Kimitachi e: Ikemen Paradaisu?), also known as Ike-para, is a Japanese drama produced by Fuji Television and first aired on July 3, 2007. It is based on the comic by Hisaya Nakajo, published in English as Hana-Kimi. Filming locations include the Ryutsu Keizai University.
A TV Special has already aired with the regular cast reprising their roles. The story starts off half a year after Mizuki's secret of being a girl has revealed. It is near Valentine's Day, and Sano and Nakatsu are talking about the last week of Summer vacation. This is when the story gets back to the last week of Summer holidays, which is between episode 7 and 8. The shooting started on March 19, 2008.[1] A conference was held on September 18, 2008 announcing the completion of the special, subtitled Sotsugyoshiki & 7 to 1/2 wa Special (卒業式&71/2話スペシャル?).[2]

Plot summary

The drama is based on the popular comic of the same name by Nakajo Hisaya. Horikita plays the protagonist Ashiya Mizuki, a Japanese girl in the United States who one day sees the young athlete Sano Izumi compete in high jumping on television. She begins to idolize him. Sano gets injured one day in America while trying to help Mizuki escape from some gangsters. He stops high jumping ever since. Mizuki blames herself for the incident and decides to go to Japan and help Sano find his love for high jumping. However, Izumi goes to an all-boys school, so Mizuki disguises herself as a boy in order to meet with him again.
For the Hana Kimi Special, Nakatsu and Sano reminiscence about when Sano fell in love with Mizuki. This takes us back to the weeks between Episode 7 and 8, where Mizuki's friend, Julia, from America comes to Osaka Gakuen to take Mizuki back to America. While Julia is in Japan, she decides to act as Mizuki's girlfriend.

Differences

There are many differences from the manga and drama. Though the concept and characters are the same, the story is described differently. For example Sano got injured from saving his friend, while in the drama he got injured from saving Mizuki. Genders are also different in the drama as well. Akiha is supposed to be a guy, however the character is portrayed as a woman in the drama. In the manga Sano found out Mizuki's true gender when he accidentally "felt her up", but in the drama Sano finds out Mizuki's a girl when he overhears Mizuki talking to her brother. Nakatsu also found out about Mizuki's gender a lot earlier, while in the manga he finds out Mizuki's true gender along with everyone else.
