Notes: Boys Over Flowers, Season 2

Kamio Yoko--Boys Over Flowers Season 2 c01It’s not the same. I mean, of course it’s not the same, but then again, maybe it’s too similar? So instead of the F4 we now have the Correct 5 and instead of red cards we have withdrawal forms. It’s just as ridiculous as the premise of the original, but this, I get the feeling will not live up to it. I also get the feeling that this version is going to be unnecessarily more vicious than the original. I don’t think I can take that. Frankly, I’m sure I can’t take it because the first chapter is 64 pages and I only got to page 21 before I started feeling slightly nauseous.

I suppose, it’s most likely me that’s not the same. So, rather than force myself to “at least see the first chapter through,” I think my time would be better spent dusting off the original and getting reacquainted with one of my favorite shoujo tales.

If you’d like to judge for yourself, you can check it out here.

is-cru replied: Chapter 1 got better. Definitely has the same feel, but different at the same time.

Is that so? Maybe I will revisit it once the there’s enough for a volume. It’ll be easier to evaluate the story that way. Though, I’m not sure my mind will be changed.

Do you know how long they plan to keep the chapters up?

itanda replied: It did get better; I didn’t enjoy it until about 2/3 of the way through. I’d probably wait to read more, though, unless they start taking chapters down.

Yeah, that’s where I’m at. I asked them about the availability and got this:

So, if c01-c05ish are still up when c06ish goes up, I’ll try again.
