Boys Over Flowers- Anime Review


I remember seeing this anime before but I can't remember if I liked it or not but I do know the theme song is catchy why? It's all I had been humming recently so I guess it's time to see this older romance anime to see if it's as good as the theme song.


The Plot

Eitoku Academy is a school for the elite and the wealthy while Tsukushi Makino is from a poor family who got in a scholarship is considered the "weed." Whereas, the group of the four richest and most elite boys are known as the Flower Four or F4 bully her and her friend. Tsukushi doesn't take their crap and stands up to them. The F4 then retaliate by leaving a red slip in her locker which promotes the rest of the school to torment her. Will she be able to cope with Eitoku Academy and there is more to the F4 than money and status?


My Review

This anime is older made in 1998 and while it shows its age it was still entertaining. It does fall into the usual "romance drama/comedy" tropes, misunderstandings, denials, rivals, and love triangles. I will say it starts off great and ends great, but the middle can get a bit annoying on that it drags, but the ending makes it worth it. If you're looking for an classic romance anime then check out Boys over Flowers.
