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."

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.

The premise starts out in a way that you wouldn’t expect much romance to develop from. Tsukushi Makino is a middle to lower middle class student at an exclusive high school attended by ...

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 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, ...

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 ...
