^___^ HELLO!! As many of you know, Hana Kimi was first published in the comic magazine, "Hana To Yume." Sometimes, Hana Kimi would be featured on the cover of the magazine. In the "Character Book" for Hana Kimi, they published some small pictures of the covers. When I saw them, I was like, "Wow.... I want those SO badly...." ^__^ Since then, I have set out on a quest to look for the all the covers. The one featured in this update are all the Hana Kimi covers of the year 2002. Hope you guys like!
^.^ When you look around the net, you'd notice that other Japanese manga like Chobits or X/1999 have trading cards. Ever wondered if Hana Kimi have trading cards? The answer is "yes!" Hana Kimi does indeed have trading cards. Not official ones that are sold in stores, but ones that are released by "Hana To Yume." Every once in a while, "Hana To Yume" magazine releases a group of trading cards for the series that are running in their magazine. And in order to obtain them, proof of purchases need to be sent in for the cards.
In the 2002 All Stars edition, 8 Hana Kimi cards were released. ^__^ In the front of the cards, are really pretty pictures of Hana Kimi. In the back, they ask a trivia question about the Hana Kimi series and give you multiple answers to choose from. Its really neat! And the cards are very glossy and REALLY pretty.( Collapse )

^__^ Did you know that Hana Kimi has a theme song as well? Its available usually as the last track for the officially released drama CDs. The song is called "Sweet" and is performed by Ashiya Mizuki's seiyuu Kuwashima Houko. What do you think of it?

Hana Kimi was first published in "Hana To Yume" bi-monthly magazine. ^__^ The magazine gives away different furoku's of different manga (that is featured in their magazine) every month. In the #8 / 2001 issue of "Hana To Yume," the magazine gave all its readers a 2001 Spring Postcard Calendar of Hana Kimi. There are 6 months that are featured in this calendar, and once you're done using it, you can tear out the pages and use them as postcards. ^___^( Collapse )
In the issue of "Hana To Yume #5 / 1999," it announced the release of the very first "drama CD" for Hanazakari no Kimitachi e. The CD was a special and could only be obtained through mailing in a proof of purchase (of the "Hana To Yume" issue). The CD came in a box which included the CD, booklet, and even a special Hana Kimi memo pad.( Collapse )
