Visitors to Hana Yori Dango Homepage, it's been a while. Inoue Mao here.
There will be a special present for all of you this Christmas Eve!!
Wow, a no-cut version of the movie Hana Yori Dango Final will go on air for the first time.
For those who have not watched HanaDan, memorable scenes from the drama series will be aired before the movie broadcast. Look forward to that too.
Having had the privilege of doing 2 seasons of Hana Yori Dango, I have many memories of both seasons. In the end, what stood out the most for me in Part 1 was 'the scene where Tsukushi punched Doumyouji.' I was only 18 at the time, and I remembered being really nervous about Jun-kun's 'Doumyouji aura'.
In Part 2, it's 'the scene we parted under the rain.' It is a scene I like and have thought of doing since shooting for Part 1 and to actually be able to do it made me very happy but also...
There was so much rain falling on us, it was very cold and difficult. It left me with vivid memories up to this day.
After the manga and drama series, Tsukushi and Doumyouji's love story finally comes to its conclusion in the movie. It's the final present from HanaDan, so please don't miss the journey of their love in front of the TV!!
Then at the end of the program, there will be a big Christmas present from us, so please watch it right to the end!!
