I finally got to watch the Hana Kimi Special, after hearing about it some time ago and well...I LOVED IT! I know that this show is not to a lot of people's tastes, fans of the manga seem not to like it, which I can empathise with (Honey and Clover!!!) but I love this show. It really is the definition of crack, and made me into a total Ikuta Toma fangirl.
The special is set between episodes 7 and 8, and the theme is "When Sano fell in love with Mizuki". I was initially disappointed that they weren't going to go on a field trip to the States to visit Mizuki, but a lot of people missed the whole Sano/Mizuki romance so they tried to make up for it in this episode. I personally will never understand how she never chose Nakatsu, but then I haven't read the manga so what do I know! XD
While the special wasn't exactly what I was expecting, it was great for what it was, and I wish they had had time to fit in these storylines when the show was airing. There was enough dorm 1, Oscar and general Nakatsu goodness to keep me satisfied though. And one simply hilarious scene where Sano pulls a Nakatsu. :D
NOW! Pics! To describe the parts I liked best. ^_^( IkePara! )
Part of me really hopes that they can film another special, but I highly doubt it! The guys are getting older, and I don't think they can all play high school students for much longer. I loved this special though!
Now Dr Who type people! I need to be pointed in the general direction of some excellent Ten icons, stat! :D
