I think the Taiwanese Drama ISWAK & TKA is better, anime is too fast pace and cut a number of scene. The Drama is funnier and is more similar to the manga. Joe Cheng as Zhi Shu is way more handsome than Irie. Ariel Lin as Xiang Qin is funny and dumb. Jiro is much funnier and better looking than Kin Chan.

At first I thought the anime was based off of ISWAK combined with TKA, but then I noticed it was currently airing. So I just continued to think that the second season of ISWAK was just made up because the Jap drama didn't have season 2. BUT, then I remembered to account for the manga, which I never read.

Anyways, I think I like both the live-action drama and the anime. They are quite similar to one another, it's just that the drama has more stuff happen. Either way, THEY BOTH ROCK! As long as the storyline remains and it keeps an interest in us, that's all there is to it

... also, joe cheng is super handsome!!! hahaa! love him lots! so you can say that i'm slightly biased...loved itazura na kiss because of him and ariel lin! oh! and also jiro wang, who acted as kin chan! the anime did no justice to his acting and looks! >_<

Definitely NO justice at all for Kin-chan!
When I first saw him in the anime, I was like:
Is that supposed to be Kin-chan?! Why the hell does he look so ugly and old?!

Hum... I like both. I liked the first season of the drama but the second isn't better. The end of the season two is rather disappointing, for me. I like Ariel Lin, she's so funny and I don't think that she's ugly !

The anime is good too, but i think that this is going to fast; but i really like it XD !

So 50/50 xD

BTW, the drama ISWAK was personally approved by Tada-sensei before she died. She said about Ariel that she thought Ariel was cute. ^_^ So while you may not like her, the mangaka seemed to enjoy her and the acting in at least ISWAK. It's sad she didn't get to see the end of ISWAK though. Plus thinking that an actress is "ugly" and therefore makes the whole drama bad is a very poor way to judge a storyline and a drama. Ariel with all the make up and frills actually is very pretty, so she made herself ugly for the part. The intention was to make Kotoko plain for the manga, which is apparent from the storyline, not pretty. Considering that I think the intention was translated well. Also, if you look a the Chinese characters of the names, Naoki's name in Chinese is actually preserved, only using Mandarin pronunciation.

And you're not supposed to vote if you haven't seen both! Shame on you if you voted without seeing both!

I will categorically say that the Japanese drama version sucked and needs a serious overhaul.

Anyway, this is to say, don't be shallow with your voting! I look at production values, the intention of the directors, the acting/voicing of the characters, preservation of the storyline, how the story is communicated, how gaps in the story are made up for, and the overall effort put in.

I like both versions, but since I'm a story geek, I go for the one that preserves the story the most. (I own all the manga). ^^;; This is why I go for the TW drama version.
