Editorial Reviews

KLIATT
Tsukushi Makino, the protagonist of Boys Over Flowers, is a middle-class transfer student who runs afoul of the F4, the clique that rules her private, super-rich high school. For this sin Tsukushi is ostracized by her schoolmates and subjected to increasing abuse—her desk is stolen, an egg is thrown in her face, and someone writes that she had a pair of abortions on the school blackboard. Tsukushi is a born fighter, however, and fight back she does—with fist, flyswatter and foot. F4 stands for "Flowery Four," by the way—sounds silly, but it works. The members of the F4 are rich and good-looking, dress like supermodels, and strut around the school like peacocks. They have an aura that is both attractive and repellent, the pull of which both Tsukushi and the reader feel. The F4's leader is the creepy Tsukasa Domyoji, who wears pseudo-dreds and is constantly mixing up his phrases. Domyoji pays a bunch of guys to gang rape Tsukushi (they fail), and then falls in love with her when she kicks him in the head. He has her kidnapped so as to give her an expensive haircut and makeover, his way of saying that he wants to be friends. Teens will respond to Boys Over Flowers. It's part soap opera, part pro-wrestling, with surprisingly complex characters. Tsukushi is a strong, attractive protagonist, and I almost felt sorry for Domyoji, who has no social skills and equates physical abuse with love. Boys Over Flowers contains mean people, intense situations and mild vulgarity. This is the first book in a series; if it circulates, keep going! KLIATT Codes: S—Recommended for senior high school students. 2003, VIZ, 192p. illus., Ages 15 to 18.

    I love this series!

    Boys over Flowers was one of the first manga I ever read, and it continues to be one of my all time favorites! Most mangas that last much over 10 volumes tend to be redundant, but not this one! It is always exciting, emotional, and so FUNNY!<BR/><BR/>It's a series for Shojo lovers. It's a great read for romance and comedy.

    A fantastic manga!

    This manga was fantastic and I have read plenty of manga. I would highly suggest it!The manga started out with not very good art'in my opinion'but as the story goes on the art definitely improves!I even started reading it and quit because I couldn't stand the art but once I really started I fell in love with it and it has to be one of if not my favorite manga. So if you haven't read it you so should it is very romantic, funny, and sweet. Also it has different characters then most shojo especially Makino who is awesome. I hope you read this and enjoy it!

    I stand here in awe....

    Based on the title, many would think this is another high school teen drama. Although it is a drama, it is much more intense and just simply hilarious! It really is an amusing story about the Rich and Poor taken to a whole new level. You will love every single volume of Boys Over Flowers.

    Similarities

    Boys Over Flowers definitely remind me of a similar drama-like series but instead of anime characters they're tv series this one is called 'meteor garden' which is so similar to Boys Over Flowers maybe its my imagination but BOF maybe is the anime part of Meteor Garden but the difference is that MG is a Tawian creations whereas BOF is a japanese creation same setting... a middle-class girl enters a high classed high school but when the F4 tries to pick on her instead of running away with her tail between her legs she stands up to them. Because of that the whole school gangs up on her.... well it goes on... well since it is similar to Meteor Garden you should definitely read Boys Over Flowers

    Not the average teen drama

    This totally reminds me of a grown-up Kodocha. The heroine is not some helpless little girl and the characters are all well developed. Drama with some kick-butt, funny incidents. How does the author make you end up cheering for the bully, Doumyoji?? Awesome...

    :D gotta be one of the best mangas ever!

    Ok, i've only read the translations online. but from what i've read, it is great! it's not ur typical girl needs saving from a big bad guy but more of girl kicks major butt! it reminded me a bit of kodocha. :D well anyway, the story is about this poor girl, tsukushi who goes to this ultra rich high school with a bunch of spoiled snobs. b/c of her poverty, she doesn't have much friends. to make matters worse, there's a group of four ultra-rich guys, called the f4, who rule the school and make life a living hell for those they don't like. after tsukushi stands up for one of her friends, who accidentally bumped into one of the guys, she has become one of their targets. this manga is smart, romantic, and absolutely hilarious. anyone who loves manga has to read this! if not, you're missing out on something great!

    Hana Yori Dango 4ever!

    it's a fantastic manga.first manga i ever read and loved it so much. F4 and Tsukushi is just hilarious. you will not be able to wait to get your hands on the next chapter. The story is fast-paced, lots of twists, and a crazy love triangle going on between domyouji, Tsukushi and Rui. You'd enjoy reading it, promise. i hope the rest of the chapters will be released soon coz i wanna know what happens in the end! I also recommend you to watch the anime series, and the drama series : METEOR GARDEN. the real -life F4 are much cuter that the anime/manga version. they are now the most popular group in asia and known all over the world. you're so gonna love them!

    LUV LUV LUV HYD!

    HYD is the first and best manga I've ever read! It has a lot of characters and tells a story of a ' cute '/funny relationship. There are 51 mangas in all, 34 right now and 5 Margaret Issues in 2003 right now. The story so far is pretty sad >_< ....Domyoji Tsukasa is...gonna...leave... >.<

    ****HANA YORI DANGO IS THE BEST ****

    this is one of the best series out there...i have the anime (51 eps), the taiwanese live drama (meteor garden I & II), and i have the manga 1-33+. as you can tell i absolutely love this series!!! although if you see the anime it leaves off and ends just when the manga was getting good. so watch the anime AND read the manga!!!!

    one of the best stories around

    this is one of the best manga and anime series that ive seen and read. the anime series is 51 episodes long and the ending comes out of nowhere probably b/c the manga was too long, so read the manga. the manga series is pretty long (30+) and its still continuing. the charcters are easy to relate to and i just LOVE Doumyouji!!!
