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."

This was one of the first 10 anime I ever watched. Since then, I have watched things like Fruits Basket, Attack on Titan, Tokyo Ghoul, My Hero Academia, Maid Sama, Love is War, Devilman Crybaby, My Dress Up Darling... just, plenty of varied anime from great to mediocre to new and old. I could go on. But three years after I watched this old anime, Hana Yori Dango, I am rewatching and getting more out of it the second time around. So I do recommend it.

The most interesting part of this anime is the character development of Tsukasa Domyoji ...

Mixed Feelings
It's bad.

Objectively, it's bad, but I really enjoyed it. It's a classic messy shoujo that will piss you off to no end, but it's so brainless that you end up feeling really relaxed while watching it and it's really fun to just sit back and pay half-attention to. There's some genuinely good character development and some likeable people, some really sweet moments, and some inconsistencies that will make you kind of insane.

If you like brain-rotting shoujo and need something less-than-serious to get your mind off of things, this show is perfect! Tsukushi will make you nuts, but you'll love her anyway. Have fun.

Hana Yori Dango was one of my worst anime experiences, mainly because it tricked me in the first 20 episodes. In the beginning, the anime offers an interesting plot, especially with the protagonist. However, to my surprise, everything broke down relatively quickly, here are, in my view, the main problems of the work:

-The "triangle": The love triangle of this anime does not make any sense, because simply, one of the 2 parts of the triangle is not interested in the protagonist, in fact, all the moments that this person directs in a more "loving" way with protagonist seemed ...
