Last summer's "Hanazakari no Kimitachi e" drama series is returning for a one-episode special. Starring Maki Horikita, Shun Oguri, and Toma Ikuta, the show was very popular, especially among female viewers. It averaged 17.3% ratings, with the final episode reaching 21.0%.

According to Fuji TV, the special will take place half a year after the series' end. With Osaka Gakuen getting ready for an upcoming Valentine's Day event, Sano (Oguri) and Nakatsu (Ikuta) reflect on the final week of their last summer vacation, which falls into the timeline of the original series between episodes 7 and 8. The special also includes a graduation scene and addresses the relationship between Mizuki (Horikita) and Sano.

Filming begins on Wednesday, but no broadcast date has been specified yet.

This is FujiTV's popular series <<Hanazakari no Kimitachi e~Ikemen Paradise>> SP report. (The broadcasting time has not been set.) As a youthful drama set in a boy's school, Horikita Maki experienced her first time role as a boy and all the male actors were deemed "handsome men," including Oguri Shun and Ikuta Toma, amongst other hot actors.

The story is set half a year after Ashiya Mizuki (Horikita) left Osaka Gakuen due to her identity exposure. The school is hosting a Valentine's Day event. In the interim, Sano (Oguri) and Nakatsu (Ikuta) recollect the last week of vacation that they spent with Mizuki. The story expands on this blank week. It will also explore Mizuki and Sano's love.

Having once again cut her hair, Horikita, who is challenging the role of Mizuki, said, "Although I felt nervous about whether or not I can find Mizuki's spirit again, this feeling evaporated after my hair cut. I will work hard at portraying the lively Mizuki again."

Oguri said, "I will once again act as a high school student, and I will utilize skills that had not been exposed in the series. I will work hard!"

Ikuta confidently exclaimed, "I was certain that I would meet this cast again. After the series ended, I was very happy to find all the actors lively. Because I experienced a lot of excitement in this drama, I can't wait to see everyone again and reaffirm the experience we have all gained from acting together. This show will be a holiday! When it airs, please join in on the Ikemen Holiday. I'm waiting for you, Baby!"
