Why oh why am I the last person on earth to watch the HYD Final? >_<

It seems that my New Year's hangover has lasted much longer than originally hoped for…..or hmmm intended~! 😛 No I'm not speaking of alcohol but rather just so many things to complete and get done in these first days of 2009 and I really apologize for my neglect here as I know it's been a really sad excuse of a blog lately…or hmmm now that I think about it it may have been sad all year. 😛

So I'm finally and I mean finally going to watch the HYD Final~♥!! movie and you can't imagine just how excited I am right now!!!!!!!! If you were here you'd surely have me commited for some sort of therapy or help as I'm just sooooo… =)…then I'm…o(*´∀`)o゛♥…………followed by……..♪♪…and then it's (*´∀`*) all over again. Lather, rinse and repeat as necessary. 😛

Well any sort of "serious" HYD Final post may be a couple of days away as I may be speechless or just unable to navigate a keyboard with my fingers but surely I'll be able to manage at some point…..I think.

Kawaii deshou~!♥

So for now all I can share are the contents of the box set which arrived recently and while the price tag was surely scary and had me pondering over the "buy" button for approximately 10 seconds it truly was inevitable that I add it to my virtual online shopping cart as I continued to stroll down isle 5 in Cdjapan's new release section. ^ ^ Actually I do tend to browse way too much finding things that weren't necessarily on my shopping list along the way….a great reason to never go to a supermarket with me ever…..:P

002

It's like a little travel case and I must say that it was certainly packaged with care assuring that it arrived undamaged. The exterior is of a slightly glossy finish and the well constructed case comes complete with carry handle and two nylon strap which assure that none of you fave HYD actors/actresses escape! 🙂

Opening the case reveals a beautfully presented DVD slipcase as well as 5 oversized postcards and a storyline/cast brochure. The images on the DVD casing as well as the postcards are stunning at the very least and these post cards are of a rather odd size…measuring…..5 5/16" X 7 1/16." The black & white photographs are absolutely picturesque as they feature the main HYD castmembers which we've all come to adore and ♥ so much through the previous two series! ^o^ I may be a bit biased in saying, but isn't this one of the most charismatic and attractive drama casts ever?! If not that, then perhaps it's largely due to the incredibly engaging storyline which keep us watching episode after episode just yearning for more and surely I will be quite depressed when the Final is over and I've nothing more to look forward to……great dramas have a way of leaving the viewer in such a state where you suddenly feel empty and lost as if you've just lost a loved one and best friend….maybe you've felt the same? ^ ^

Inoue Mao is just sooooooooooo gorgeous!!!!!! Of course Matsun & Oguri Shun are also!♥ Here, I've scanned the postcard set…pure ~♥! ^ ^

The DVD's outer slipcase is perhaps the most attractive part of the set as the outer box is thickly constructed and completely decorated in HYD attire as is the inner DVD case as both are absolutely mesmerizing in appearance. Is it my imagination or has the entire cast gotten even more hot with each new encarnation of the series?! ^o^

005

The premium edition includes 3 DVDs with a director's cut (+32 minutes)….although I'm not going to be able to know the difference unless I view the theatrical version as well….hmmm I may just watch the extended version though. Other extras include t.v. spots, cast interviews, making of as well as a memorial event with additonal footage also shot in Okinawa.

Surely I'll be back with thoughts on the movie but for now……………

  14. Kyaaaaa~! Oh dear no spoilers no spoilers!! LOL but you probably already are assuming some things maybe? I actually still need to watch the Final movie….what is wrong with me??? >_< Let me know if you have any trouble finding the second series as I will happily purchase it for you and send it to you. 🙂 Plus that way it'll look pretty and uniform on your shelf together with the first series. I was sort of worried that you may find this show to be a bit too over the top but I think that's really part of its charm as it was directed to be a bit out there at times with the characters and storyline. It definitely makes you cry and then laugh and then cry some more and then well….it's an ongoing cycle of ♥! Oh and Maochan…she's so adorable isn't she and I forgot to send you this little link here. ^ ^

  16. I did finally watch the Final and it was every bit as great as I had hoped it would be!! \(^o^)/☆ Such a sweet and amazing ending with of course some bumps and drama on the road to their wedding. The chase scene with Matsujun near the beginning was amazing and with a lot of close up shots I'm thinking he must have done his own stunts too~! And Inoue Mao was as adorable as ever! The twist really got me too as I didn't figure it out until the very end although I did have bits of suspicion about F4's involvement…but who could have ever guessed that it was Makino's parents??? ^ ^

  18. For awhile deep into the movie I was really convinced that maybe Rui was involved as they made it look like he was….but luckily everything turned out to be perfect and the reasoning behind it, while drastic was still driven by ♥. ^ ^ Hmm…I would have never guessed it to be makino's parents though! Not in a million years~!

    hehe When I first started watching HYD I got instantly hooked!! lol I finished the first season on like 5 days and the same with the second season! They were so amazing and they always made me cry. ** lol And then like 4 weeks later I found out that there was a movie!!! I flew to my computer soooo fast to find it!!!I highly enjoyed it =]I also would have never expected Makino's parents either..lol it was a shell shocker ^^

  20. So true as HYD is so addicting!! I think I watched the episodes almost as quickly as you did! Then I had to see the special in NY and OMG "turkey soda???"….but finally being able to watch the final movie was pure ♥~! We were really left hanging in the first series and even the second series left some doubt with subplots but it was happily tied together at the end in a most beautiful and emotional way! I cried a lot too and I thought that everyone's performance was amazing….especially Matsujun, Maochan and Oguri Shun! LOL I'm so biased though!! ^ ^

  24. It really gives hope to relationships everywhere albeit this was a fictional story…still we should believe in this kind of true romance I think. ^ ^ You can find the first and second series here as well as the special for only $20 each! =) I think only one of those releases doesn't have English subtitles but there's a duplicate version which is subtitled in English so you can find all three here. ^ ^
