Last summer’s “Hanazakari no Kimitachi e” drama series is returning for a one-episode special. Starring Maki Horikita, Shun Oguri, and Toma Ikuta, the show was very popular, especially among female viewers. It averaged 17.3% ratings, with the final episode reaching 21.0%.

According to Fuji TV, the special will take place half a year after the series’ end. With Osaka Gakuen getting ready for an upcoming Valentine’s Day event, Sano (Oguri) and Nakatsu (Ikuta) reflect on the final week of their last summer vacation, which falls into the timeline of the original series between episodes 7 and 8. The special also includes a graduation scene and addresses the relationship between Mizuki (Horikita) and Sano.

Filming begins on Wednesday, but no broadcast date has been specified yet.

Yay! I can’t wait :)

    That’s so exciting!! Thanks for the update – I loved that drama, and so lets hope the special will be good as well!

    Your site’s very helpful, by the way – thanks for leading me to “Reviewing the Kanji”, and also for all the drama reviews. ^^ I’m pretty crazy about J-dramas…

    Just one question. When you put up all these “Who’s Subbing What” posts, do you mean that the dramas will be subbed and they’ll be available on your website?

    Thanks a lot!!

    Hi Julia!
    Thanks for commenting. I hope to see you around ;)

    Each tv season new tv shows are shown on Japanese TV. And each season groups of people sub these tv shows for free, because they are fans of the shows. It is simply awesome. You can check out more about these subbing groups at the fansub wiki.

    I’ve written these posts to make people aware of what is being subbed, for my own reference, and as a little “shout out” of thanks to these groups for their hard work.

    Hope that helps,
