Why Hirakawa Daisuke for Tanaka Youichi!?

I quite like shojo manga live action adaptions, hope the cast'll be good.

I'm looking forward to the animé . but not much in live action . depends on the cast .

I'll probably give the anime a try only since I'm not a big fan of live action movies. I haven't read AHR though but I heard from a few friends that it's good!

Guess I should start reading the manga already.

Live action movie? Haha.

I'm not a fan of Live Action Movies,
but I will make exception for AHR,
just like I made for Sailor Moon, Kimi ni Todoke
and some series simillar to Ouran High School Host Club xD

I have hope AHR will be as good as KnT.

Will likely pass on this as I'm not a fan of live action.

I'm actually surprise that it took them so long.

I thought the Kimi ni Todoke live action wasn't that bad. Maybe Ao Haru will be better. The manga is dope though, and I hope the animu will be gud.

I heard much of this anime, maybe it will be my third shoujo anime.

I AGREE WITH THIS SO MUCH! Ugh. -_- Which is why I resent the fact that most shoujo manga are being made into live action...

At least the staff working on the script have some school-romance experience, so it couldn't be that bad.

Live-action is unnecessary but I guess popular shoujo end up to have them.

But eh, I'll watch the anime. I hope it makes money.
