Synopsis

Makino Tsukushi, a girl who comes from a poor family, just wants to get through her two last years at Eitoku Gakuen quietly. But once she makes herself known by standing up for her friend to the F4, the four most popular, powerful, and rich boys at the school, she gets the red card: F4's way of a "Declaration of War." But when she doesn't let herself be beaten by them and is starting to fall for one of the F4, Hanazawa Rui, she starts to see that there is more than meets the eye...

Hana Yori Dango (Boys Over Flowers) is the best anime you will ever watch in your entire life the reason behind this is because Hana Yori Dango isn't just your typical shoujo romance anime with the main female character being a masochist by falling in love with a guy who treats her like shit and the girl doesnt know how to defend them self against the guy. The anime starts out in a most likely way that you wouldnt expect any romance to develop from. Tsukushi Makino is ranked has a middle to lower class student at an all exclusive high school with the read more

The shoujo romance genre is littered with countless series with predictable formulaic plotlines, bishies, and uninteresting characters. Often we are left with a terrible non ending or one in which usually one side can’t express their feelings for the other until the credits start to roll. Hana Yori Dango completely captivated me from the beginning and left me with a rewarding ending that restored my faith in the romance genre.

I really want to write a review for this anime I don't think it will be as long as the others however, this is my first review.

This anime, while old with older art, was amazing for me. I had been feeling like I hadn't seen a good romance in a while and what brought my attention to it was a review that had said it "restored their faith in the romance genre"

The main characters while childish and obnoxious at the start slowly seem to develop into mature-ish young adults. Starting with Makino, throughout the anime she is rather stubborn, naive and headstrong. She is a read more

Considering that this anime aired about 10 years ago, the animation and sound are not as great as the shows you'd see nowadays, but that's no reason to shy away from this great series.

The characters are fully developed and you really start to put yourself in their shoes once you get to know them better. While some of the storylines can be a bit farfetched, there's just enough balance of drama, romance, and comedy to draw you in. The storylines have so many twists that you'll never be bored while watching this series.

Bottom line: If you're looking for an anime packed with drama, romance, read more

Recommendations

Both have love triangles in which other girls fall in love with the main characters "destined one", and vice versa. I think Hana Yori Dango is better, but they are both really good love anime
Just like fruits basket and Ouran High school host club, hana yori dango has that aspect of reverse harem. But hana yori dango and Ouran high school host club both are stories about a poor girl attending a prestigious school for rich kids. Both poor girls are independent and full of life so all the rich guys are interested in her life and spirit and the differentness. Both anime are wonderful and both are a must watch.
Hana Yori Dango and Peach Girl are both about love triangles. (or squares)

They are both about love between to different kind of lifestyle
Gorgeus love stories where the rich guy falls for the poor girl... very cinderella... i luv it!
It may sound like a long shot , but these animes are really similar. In both of them the main focus is romance, strong female lead , and charming/sexy/ dangerous male one. The differences is that in Kaichou wa Maid -sama we have one super cool guy and here we have four. Don't worry though we still have happy ending, only with the difference that in Kaichou wa maid sama it's clear with who , and in Hana yori Dango it takes some time :) But I am 100 % sure that if you liked Kaichou wa Maid sama you will like Hana Yori Dango too.
