Genre: Shoujo, Comedy, Drama, Romance, School Life.
*Read all chapters of this manga.
After a re-read for the whole manga, I can definitely say that this is one of my all time favorite manga! I even enjoyed re-reading it more than reading it for the first time, and I loved reading about these characters again and understood their insides and feelings a lot more.
This manga is about "Makino Tsukushi" (Tsukushi = tough weed), coming from a poor family with very low income, yet she goes to a school for rich people "Eitoku". She suffers a lot as she is the only poor student at school, she doesn't have any friends and everyone treats her badly.
Makino's only wish was to remain invisible in Eitoku to avoid getting into trouble. But one day she stands for her classmate against the F4 (Flowers 4) gang. As a result, the whole school turns against her. And despite the harassment, Tsukushi refuses to give up and quite the war.
Domyouji (the F4 leader) discovers later that he fell in love with Tsukushi. But Tsukushi is in love with Rui, who in turn has romantic feelings for his childhood friend Shizuka.
This may sound cliche, but it is so entertaining and with this amount of volumes out, you really get sucked into the story and you become to care more and more for the characters, even the side ones.
I LOVE "Tsukushi". She is so powerful, kind and hardworking. I also enjoyed reading about her friendship with "Yuki". I loved that Tsukushi standed for her friends even if she got in trouble.
I have to say that I didn't like "Domyouji" the first time I read the manga! But after the re-read, I kinda understand how he feels and I come to love him more and more.
I loved the whole F4 gang, their friendship is amazing even though they are so violent toward other people. Hanazawa Rui is kind and caring, Nishikado Soujiro and Mimasaki Akira are really helpful to Domyouji and care for him so much.
The only thing I didn't like about this manga is the ending. Not that it is that bad but because the author left it open, and I kinda hate open ends like this one. The ending in the anime/TV Series is more satisfying.
Hana Yori dango, Season 1, 2: ★★★★★
Season 1: THAT END though!
Season 2: This season made me cry like a baby.
The drama is quite honest to the manga. When I first saw the trailer, I didn't think that I would love it. I kept telling myself that the actors seem unattractive to me. But after episode one, I discovered how HANDSOME the F4 are!!
The cast is amazing. They brought the manga to life. They made me love the characters more and more! It gave me ALL THE FEELS. :)
Tsukushi, the "Tough Weed"..
I loved Domyouji so much. He was hilarious. (And I love Matsumoto Jun, so of course I knew I would love Domyouji).
And WHY SO CUTE AND ADORABLE?
Hana Yori dango Final, the movie ★★★★★
This movie is about (view spoiler)[ Domyouji and Tsukushi getting married (hide spoiler)] and the hardships they face together. I LOVED this movie. I was so nervous while watching it, but it was a happy end. And I knew that. :D But I couldn't help feeling nervous till the end.
I watched the ending 5 times till now. That shows you how much I loved it!

Read information about the authorYōko Kamio (神尾葉子) is a popular Japanese manga artist and writer. She is most famous for Boys Over Flowers (花より男子, Hana Yori Dango?), for which she received the Shogakukan Manga Award in 1996. Her work has been translated and distributed in Asia, Europe, and North America.
Yōko Kamio readily admits that she had no intention of becoming a professional manga artist when she was young. Kamio originally went to secretarial school, but her love of drawing soon led her astray. She then eventually entered the professional mangaka field in 1989. In the following years, Kamio published Suki Suki Daisuki, Ano Hi ni Aitai, and Meri-san no Hijitsu in Margaret before she finally created Hana Yori Dango in 1992.
The Hana Yori Dango manga became established relatively quickly in Japan. Many people commended Kamio for her realistic portrayal of high school life and everyday violence through the Hana Yori Dango series. Although Kamio was initially surprised by the confessions of high school violence stated in fan letters, she realized that Tsukushi's fiery character served as a role model for much of Japan's youth and helped others cope with school violence.
Kamio watched as the success of Hana Yori Dango's 1992 début followed through with many more months on the best-sellers list. Voice CDs by SMAP and a live action movie about Hanadan charted the series success in the mid-1990s. By 1995, an animated series for Hana Yori Dango was already in progress and Kamio had also helped pick main leads for the anime show.
Hana Yori Dango ran in the Japanese Margaret magazine as well as the Korean Wink. The series has also been published in Japanese, Chinese, Cantonese, Thai, Korean, French, and English. The anime series has been broadcasted in Japan, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, Italy, and has also been licensed and released in the United States. Additionally, it was also recreated in a Game Boy Color game (only released in Japan) during the summer of 2001. With its ever-increasing popularity, Hana Yori Dango was then made into a popular live action TV series in Taiwan titled Meteor Garden. The manga series finally ended in Margaret's August 2003 issue, and the 36th tankōbon which included the Akira special "Night of the Crescent Moon" was released in January 2004 as the manga's final volume.
While Yoko Kamio initially wanted Hanazawa Rui to be the main hero of Hana Yori Dango, due to the outstanding personality of Domyoji Tsukasa (and Domyoji also becoming more popular than Rui) she changed the hero role to Domyoji.
Despite Hana Yori Dango's success, Kamio had originally planned to end the series by Spring 2000. However, in February 2000, at a mangaka conference in Taipei, Taiwan Kamio announced that she would continue writing Hana Yori Dango. At one point, she got so wrapped up in the Hana Yori Dango storyline, that she confessed to having dreams about Doumyouji. Of course, she said that "Falling in love with a character that I created is just disgusting..."
