There is supposedly going to be a live action Skip Beat drama too (a Taiwan drama). I look forward to that as well :D


I heard about that sometime ago too and I'd think it'd be great but I'm sure I'll prefer the anime since I still disagree with the majority of the people that Ariel Lin would fit Kyoko. Ariel Lin is a great actress but she can never be Kyoko for me.

Awesome! I was pretty into this manga for a while, so I'm sure I'll check out the animated series. I'm just thinking in my head now who's going to do the voice overs.


I'm hoping for Kawasumi Ayako because she is so versatile and makes her voices somewhat different for every character.

Ooooh, this is good news. I like Skip Beat. Just... where is my Hanakimi? ;___;


I dunno if they would animate HanaKimi so soon after doing the live action drama. Then again, they did it with Gokusen (put out an anime shortly after the live action was successful) , so who knows...

I'd rather Tokyo Crazy Paradise to be animated, but Skip Beat is fine. Thought it still follow the one-girl-and-two-super-cool-boys type that every shoujo are dwelling into.


Kinda funny as I made a thread a few weeks ago asking why TCP hadnt been animated yet... Only a matter of time!


I, too, would love to see TCP animated before Skip Beat... but I guess we can only hope.

Anyways, yay for Skip Beat. Nakamura Yoshiki is a genius. I just hope animation will be better than in Vampire Knight.
