I have a lot of TV shows I need to catch up with. I am almost finished with the 2nd season of Hana Yori Dango. It seems NHK and the other producers of shows in Japan don’t make second seasons of many shows. So the shows that happen to come back tend to have an excellent story.
In the case of Hana Yori Dango Makino Tsukushi is a poor student that attends the prestigious and super-rich Eitoku Gakuen. The school is run by a group of 4 guys known as F4 (Flower 4). They come from the most powerful corporations, yakuza families, and traditional tea ceremony schools. Domyoji Tsukasa, the leader of F4 (and also from another good show Gokusen which made it to the 2nd season), issues Makino a red notice, and transform her quiet existence at Eitoku Gakuen into a nightmare.
