Love, politics, and drama, featuring Aya Endo (Sheryl Nome from Macross Frontier), Daisuke Ono (Sebastian from Kuroshitsuji), Daisuke Namikawa (Italy from HPA, Michael Trinity from Gundam 00), Jun Fukuyama (Grell from Kuroshitsuji, Leloch from Code Geass), and Toshiyuki Morikawa (Sephiroth from Final Fantasy, Ryuuichiro Isaka from Junjō Romantica). How can you resist that? Check out the manga!

First, I would like to address the name because two romaji spellings for 花咲ける青少年 are found: HanaSEkeru or HanaSAkeru. I think the correct transliteration is Hanasakeru because Kun reading of 咲 is さ.く.

Based on this the prologue and the first part of the chapter one it is clear with whom she’ll end up with – the only question is how the events will evolve 🙂 The prologue is about the past events set in the time around WWII.

  1. Daisuke Namikawa is like, in everything this spring.

    The manga pages make the series seem even more interesting.

  2. “Based on this the prologue and the first part of the chapter one it is clear with whom she’ll end up with – the only question is how the events will evolve 🙂 The prologue is about the past events set in the time around WWII.”

    As mentioned above that its clear that who she will end up with, but i m abit slow in understanding it.. Do u mind telling me who kajika will end up with?

  3. excuse me (i’m frensh)but where do you find this scan for this manga because i look after this manga please answer me thanks

    1. Try typing “hanasakeru seishounen manga” in google, and I am sure you’ll find it 🙂 However, only the very beginning of the manga was translated so far.

  4. Hmmz.. actually there are scans that are fully translated, but it is in chinese. I m currently reading it now, very addicted to it >.< for those chinese reader out there, u can try searching it as another title call, ” tian guo shao nu ”

    As for english scans, its only translated till vol 1 few chapters.. i m afraid u have to wait for quite some time, thou following the anime will be faster i believe..

  5. Looks like it’ll be interesting. The girl’s characterisation seems good so far. Cool. Well, I completely missed at first that the seiyu who did Seb is in this production, what caught my eye was Jun Fukuyama. Really liked him in Special A and he was in Code Geass. Can’t wait then! ;p

  6. Thanks for the post! It made me go track down the series.

    Yet after watching episode 1 of the series and reading your post here, I can’t help but feel that the flashback you’ve posted here has to do with the current heroine’s *father* and not the person she ends up with. The son in the prologue is named “Harry” after all, and that’s the name of Kajika’s father.

  7. haha. I’m already at Episode 8.

    The very first thing I like about this anime
    is the very incredible Opening Song!! I repeat it 2 times before I watch the story.

    And then, the incredibly hot guys. I can’t choose between Li Ren and Lumarty now. Carl hasn’t come out in the anime yet (only a glimpse) so I didn’t add him to my HOT list yet.

    The story’s still progressing and it’s okay.
    But I wonder… Is Majika really childish and dense in terms of love or does she enjoy attracting the boys? Still, she’s so lucky.

    1. I’ll post about episode eight soon 🙂

      Yes, the OP song is nice 🙂 Here are some samples by J-Min 🙂

      Yes, they are hot 🙂 I like Li Ren the most so far. Rumati is too young, but I wounder how he’ll turn out 🙂

      I think Kajika is still young and does not know what true love really is, but she’ll find out soon enough 🙂

  8. omg…i seen ep. 10..and from the looks of it, Harry is the son of the late king and Lumarty and Kajika are like related to each it explain why kajika kind of looks like lumarty

    1. Thank you for mentioning this 🙂

      Yes, the fact that they are related might explain their similarities. The set up of Hanasakeru Seishounen is interesting because it explores different kinds of love experienced by the heroine.
